Bare Minerals 9
piece Starter Kit
They still have this kit at Sephora for $60.
Yes to Cucumbers
I usually find these at Target for around $5.99
I don't know what took me so long to get my hands on these, The only reason I bought it was bc it was 75% off at CVS right after Christmas when they have those huge sales. The pigmentation is strong and they last a while. Perfect for a dramatic look, and if you wet your brush you'll get an even more intense look. I use the gold shade on my lid and crease and use the metallic brown for contouring. I don't know if you can see in the picture but the darker shade has tiny gold specks packed in. It's such a pretty color. You can even get a great smokey eye from this. I have to go and get some of there other shades.
I wanna say they retail at around $7 to $8 at any drugstore
Speed Dry Drops
I think I've mentioned this in at least one of my NOTD posts, but this product is like heaven for my nails! I've had this same bottle for about a year now and it still works as good as it did the day I got it. A lot people ask me how I can keep my manicure from chipping after one or two weeks. This product is definitely one of the main reasons. Well that and I use Sally Hansen's INSTA-DRI top coat prior to the drops. Then after the drops I use a coat of Seche Vite. I know it sounds like a lot of top coat but I swear, i cant remember the last time I've had even a tiny little chip in my nail polish. I highly recommend the Sally Hansen INSTA- DRI top coat as well. There both genius, especially when used together. After I apply SH's top coat, it says to wait 60 seconds then apply 1 to 2 drops to each nail. Within 30 seconds or less of these drops hitting my nails they are completely dry. One other great thing about this is that it gives the nail polish a hard finish which is probably why the polish never chips. I love the little dropper, its so easy to use. There is one thing I could do without and that's the greasy feeling it leaves on your nails and fingers. But as soon as you wash your hands (which for me is less than a minute after applying this) it's totally gone. I always tell people that complain of their polish chipping to use the speed dry drops, actually even better, use the INSTA-DRI top coat first then the speed dry drops. I haven't seen this in any stores in a while so I don't know if they sell it anymore. I'm pretty sure OPI has these drops too.
I purchased this at Walgreens for $5.99
Hot Tools Gold
1- 1/4" Curling Iron
I've had this curling iron for about a half of year and it's the best curling iron I've ever bought. I have their 3 barrel waver and they've both been so easy to work with. I have a lot of other curling irons and non of them measure up to this one. It heats up so quick and the temp goes up to 400 which allows me to curl my hair in half the time any other curling iron would. I used to be horrible at using curling irons, for some reason I couldn't get the hang of it or the technique. It was a hot mess. Ironically after I bought this hot tools curling iron it started to become easier and now I'm able to get such pretty curls. I don't really think there that expensive either, especially for the quality. If you like to curl your hair with a curling iron, you should invest in a decent one, hot tools is a great brand and they last for a while.
I purchased this at Sally's Beauty Supply for $39.99
