I am going to have to keep this post pretty short.  After working all day, I went to the gym for an hour, then came home and gave all three of my cats baths, cleaned the house a little bit, then took a shower myself.  I am simply beat and have a pita pizza cooking.  Speaking of food, I did an “Eat This Not That” post not too long ago with one of the recipes I use to work towards weight loss.  As of today, I’ve lost 32 pounds and am still working it off.  If that was a post that you found interesting, let me know and I’ll do more!

I’ll start off with e.l.f. as usual.  When you spend $20 or more, they will send you a $21 free gift.  The last time they ran a mystery gift, I ended up with a new palette and a ton of other stuff.  It was totally worth it.  If you’re not interested in that, you can get free shipping when you spend $25.

If you act fast, you can get an 88 matte palette from BH Cosmetics for $9.  Their site says 9am to 9pm, so I’m assuming that means 9pm tonight.  They are also running 35-40% off select products in honor of fashion week.

Also in honor of fashion and for 24 hours, Coastal Scents has their 252 Ultimate Palette on sale for $19.95.  They are also offering free shipping on orders over $50.  If you don’t know what it means when I say “88 palette” or “252 palette”, its how many colors you get.  So with Coastal Scents, for $19.95 you get 252 eye shadows colors.  That is a ton of eye shadow.

I don’t have much left, but make sure you check out Ulta, Sephora and Sally Beauty for sales.  Urban Decay came out with some new palettes and Ulta has them.  They’re not necessarily on sale, but they’re a good price to begin with.

I’m sorry this post is so short, but I am starving and ready to relax.  I will be back soon with some weekend looks.  I have a wedding to go to this weekend, so I’ll be doing something fun for makeup.  As usual, if you have any ideas please let me know!  I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it was helpful!  Happy shopping!


Woohoo!  Thrifty Thursday is on time this week!!

I’m going to start out with e.l.f.  Right now, they are offering free shipping on orders over $25.  That saves you $6.95.  OR you can get buy one get one free.  You can’t use both offers, but if you shop their “Best Sellers” category, you can utilize buy one get one free.

For 48 hours, you can get Coastal Scents’ smokey eye palette.  They are still offering free shipping on orders over $50.  You can also get a mesmerizing eyes collection for 45% off.  They also have their eye, face and lip palettes on sale right now.

BH Cosmetics is running a Labor Day sale.  They have 11 palettes on sale for $11 each.  You can also get the 4th edition 120 palette for $15.

Urban Decay has a glide on pencil set on sale for $59.  That sounds like a lot but these pencils are awesome and you get 8 different shades in the set.  You can also check out their sale section for some awesome mark downs.

I am a slacker!  It has been a couple of weeks since I have done a Thrifty Thursday post.  Things have just been super busy for me.

I usually start with e.l.f., but today I’m starting with Hautelook.  Right now, they have some awesome prices on some great e.l.f. products.  Haha!  Had you fooled didn’t I!  Please please please click my link when you sign up for Hautelook.

Right now on e.l.f.’s website, they have a sweepstakes going on.  Check that out to win some prizes.  They are also offering 10 FREE mineral eye shadows when you spend $25.  They were running this deal the very first time I ordered from them and I have been a supporter ever since.  Yes you have to spend $25, but you are getting $30 worth of free eye shadows.  It is well worth it and $25 goes a long way with them.

Ulta brand products are buy 2 get one free right now.  They are running this online and in the store.  They also have the Chi on sale for $99, which is an awesome price!  If you spend $30 on fragrances, you get a free gift.  They also had NYX products 50% off last time I was in the store.

I was just browsing through the Hot Topic website and they have some makeup in their clearance section.

That’s about all I could find this week.  Let me know if you know of any other deals!  I will be posting a haul tonight and my current nails.  Happy shopping!


I went to CVS on my way home from work to get some new mascara and I stumbled upon a HUGE makeup sale! As you can see from my pic, the only thing I got that didn’t have a 50 or 75 percent off sticker on it was the mascara. I only spent $25 on this haul so I strongly encourage you to check out CVS. I went to the one on Patterson near Parham. So from left to right, including the final price, here is what I got:
Almay Truly Lasting Color foundation in buff- $3.45
Confetti nail color in Vava Voom- $.49
10 Professional Nail color in The Little Black Dress- $1.17
Rimmel Glam Eyes in Dark Signature-$1.75
Maybeline Falsies Flared mascara in Very Black- not on sale, $7.89
Milano Runway Eyes in Catwalk- $2.37
Wet n Wild Liquid Liner in Plum- $1.49
Wet n Wild Color Icon palette in Greed Gourmandise- $2.49
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips gel liner to enhance Hazel eyes- $2.75

Overall, I saved $39.96! And I got $1 in Extra bucks that you can use like a coupon on your next purchase. This was definitely an exciting trip to CVS for me! I hope this makes up for not posting yesterday. They had a ton of products with 50 and 75 percent off stickers on them. Let me know if you try anything!
