Mini Haul from Rite Aid


One of my weekly habits is that I browse the sales papers from convenience/drugstores like CVS and Rite Aid. Both stores always have makeup and beauty sales.  A week ago Rite Aid happened to have buy 1 Cover Girl mascara and get the second one free! While looking for mascara-I also browsed the entire cosmetic section (like I always do) and I picked up a few more items. I've used all of the products since I've bought them and here are my thoughts.

Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume Mascara Waterproof

What Cover Girl Says
"Get a blast of lush, volumized lashes! LashBlast's patented volume-boosting formula and patent-pending brush are designed to max-out each and every lash, leaving you with the ultimate big lash look. Now in waterproof, too!"

What I say
This mascara was $8.99. It's a pretty good mascara... I got it in waterproof (black and brown black) because I plan on using it in my makeup kit for the crying brides. It has the biggest mascara brush I've ever seen and the way it's designed it does make it easy to reach every eye lash. It extends the lashes out making them appear longer. I applied 2 coats and that was enough for me. The waterproof is NO joke! It took several cotton balls and eye makeup remover to get it off! I give this mascara an A.

Wet N Wild Eye Make-up Remover


What Wet n Wild says
"Whisk away the most stubborn mascaras, shadows, liners and shimmers. This oil-free moisturizing formula is enriched with Aloe Vera to hydrate and soothe the delicate skin around the eye area."

What I say
The price is $1.99 for 3 oz. you can't beat that, that's what made me look at it plus I do like Wet n Wild's makeup. It does exactly what it says, it removes eye make up easily. I've used it to remove eyeshadow and eyeliner with no problems. It has a nice, fresh scent that's not overpowering. Since it was $1.99 I bought 2 of them. I give this an A+!

Wet n Wild Bronzer Princess


I've heard great things from Wet n Wild's bronzers, so I bought this one. I know that all bronzers are not created equal meaning that some bronzers are made with glitter and others are made to give you a glow. This one was made to give a glow but I didn't see it, at least not on me. It really seemed to be like a darker pressed powder. The price was great $2.49 but I won't be using it as a bronzer since I didn't see any bronze. I'll just use it as contouring powder on my face. I give this a C.

That's my mini haul from Rite Aid. Take a look at their beauty and cosmetic aisle when you can. Rite Aid is great because you can return your cosmetics for any reason to get a return or exchange even if the product has been opened and used. You can do this if you purchased the wrong color or if you just didn't like the product. They are the only store that I know that will allow you to do that.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!

At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.


Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."


Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
