This has NOT been a good week for me. I started not feeling well last Saturday. It all started with a bad cold and today, I still feel like blah! My cold/flu/virus/whatever is working its way down and it's now in my stomach. I've been stuck in the house literally ALL week. I had to go to Walmart and Target today to do some shopping, or poor Lucky was going to starve (he has been eating hot dogs all week! Lol!) When I was in Target, I checked out the brushes quickly and picked up a WICKED CUTE Sonia Kashuk set. I also got my Urban Decay package today! This week they had their semi-annual Friends and Family Sale and I finally picked up a couple things that I've been wanting. So, keep reading to see what I got! :)
I was looking through the brushes that Sonia Kashuk had at Target and immediately these caught my eye! They are adorbs!! I love the colors and these are exactly the brushes that I have been needing. The price was right too! The entire set was only $14.99!! I've never tried Sonia Kashuk brushes before, but I have heard that they're great quality brushes. This set comes with five brushes: an angled crease brush (natural), multipurpose blending brush (natural), powder/blusher brush (natural), definition smudge brush (natural) and a synthetic concealer/foundation brush (synthetic). I haven't tried these out yet, but after I use them for a couple weeks, I will definitely do an updated post as to how they perform!
I ordered from Urban Decay on Wednesday afternoon, in the middle of their Friends and Family Sale. During checkout there was a little message that popped up, saying that shipping would be delayed a few days due to an overwhelming response to the sale. I was not expecting to receive my package til the beginning of next week. But, to my surprise, I got the confirmation email yesterday and the package was in my mailbox this morning! Talk about amazing costumer service and shipping!! My package came from California and I am in Rhode Island, it took just three days to get here! AH-MAY-ZING!
Now, we all know what the Naked Palette looks like, so I am NOT going to bore you with swatches, reviews, yadda yadda. I am super excited to FINALLY get my hands on this though! I have been wanting it for so long and never got it because I thought $48 (they now upped the price to $50!) was CRAZY for eyeshadow. Since, it was 20% off this past week, I said, 'why not!?', and bought it and I am happy I did! :)
I also picked up Urban Decay's The Fun Palette. This was on sale for $16 (originally $36), plus it had an additional 20% because of the sale. The palette ended up coming out to a price that I just couldn't resist. If you are more of a neutral gal, this palette probably isn't for you. Since, I love bright colors, this is PERFECT for me! I can't wait to get my hands on Woodstock (pink), Psychedelic Sister (Purple) and Flipside (tealish-aqua)! It also came with a mini primer potion and a 24/7 pencil in Oil Slick which is black with glitters!
I'm so excited to start playing with everything I got! You know that as soon as I start to feel better, I will be posting looks that I came up with using The Naked Palette and The Fun Palette! Ugh, just wish I felt better so I could play with them today! There is nothing worse that having new product and not feeling well enough to use it! So annoying! :-P
If I paid full price for everything my total WOULD have been $100.99! But, because I'm an awesome sale shopper, I only paid $66.99! I saved a total of $34!
Did you guys pick up anything from the Urban Decay Friends and Family Sale? If you did, let me know whatcha got!!
Stay forever beautiful!
Love and hugs,
