L'Oreal- Super Blendable Bronzer in Golden Pearl

Hello dolls.  Here is a new bronzer that I bought from the recent L'Oreal collection.
I got this nearly for free by redeeming some Register Rewards at Walgreens, but they normally retail for around $10 each.
 L'Oreal Bronzer in Golden Pearl
This looks like it would leave you with a beautiful golden sheen, but I was surprised at how it barely showed up on me when I swatched it:
It seems better suited as a highlighter for me.  But, I have been pleasantly surprised with L'Oreal blushers before

Currently Obsessed With...

Hey dolls.  Welcome to this month's edition of Currently Obsessed With... Here is what made the cut this month:

Boots #7 Cleansing Milk:
I have been using this for about a month now, and I love how it feels and what it does for my skin.  I will do a thorough review on it soon, so check back for that.

Bath & Body Works Lotion in Coconut Lime Breeze:
This smells heavenly.  And I got it for free with a coupon and a purchase of some new Wallflowers.  Just a little piece of paradise.

Urban Decay Lash Primer Potion
Been wearing this baby daily since I got it.  See my review on it here

Red-Orange Nails:
I'm loving how they look on me.  Definitely a statement color.  I adore red on short nails anyways, but switching it up to a red-orange is a cool change.  Yum.

Physician's Formula Multi-Colored Blush in Blushing Nude:
I have been wearing this as a hi-light instead of a blush and it fares pretty well.  I have even been utilizing the little brush that it comes with for application-partly out of laziness.  ^_*  See swatches and my review here.

What have you currently been obsessed with?

Going Out Glam-Naked Palette2

Hey dolls.  Here is what I did for a date night with my hub:
Sorry about the quality of these photos.  I did this look at night and had to take photos in the bathroom with awful yellow lighting.  
I did this look with the Naked2 palette and Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze as a base.  I added black liquid liner and falsies from Forever21 to complete the look. 
I tried a couple of different lip colors with this look, but in the end I decided to go with a bright pink lip.  I am wearing MAC's Viva Glam Nicki Minaj lipstick in the two pictures above.  
In the end, I choose Maybelline's Fuchsia Fever lipstick.  It looks a little washed out in these pictures due to the way bad lighting, but it is very apparent in real life.  

My favorite going out look lately has been a nude eye and bold lips.  What do you prefer to play up?  Lips or eyes?

April- Dollar Tree Finds

Hey friends.  Here is what I found at the Dollar Tree this month:

Nail Art packages:
"Caviar" nails are all the rage right now and I can try them for just $1!  I plan on doing a look soon with these, so be sure to check back for that.

L'Oreal Metallique Eye Shadow sticks:
Khaki Foil, Black Foil and Bronze Foil:
Khaki Foil, Black Foil and Bronze Foil:
Khaki Foil, Black Foil and Bronze Foil under OttLite:
Khaki Foil, Black Foil and Bronze Foil in natural light:
These were all swatched dry and with no primer.  The packaging doesn't really make any sense to me either.  What's with the plastic wrapping on the bottom?  And the color doesn't twist up or down either- so I am guessing that I will have to peel the plastic off as I use it?  *Scratches head*  Seriously L'Oreal??  I can see why these showed up at the dollar store.  But Bronze Foil seems to have decent pigmentation and is probably the only color that I will end up keeping.

CoverGirl Body Shimmer:
CoverGirl Body Shimmer in Silver Dust and Gold Dust:
CoverGirl Body Shimmer in Silver Dust and Gold Dust:
I spied these babies in huge tubs and was surprised to see that it was Body Shimmer.  They come with a little powder puff that you can use to pat the shimmer on. 
Special directions for use ^_*
The sticker can be peeled off, but I left mine on so that I don't have glittery body shimmer everywhere when I put it away.
CoverGirl Body Shimmer in Gold Dust :and Silver Dust:
Silver Dust looks a little frosty on my skin tone so I don't think that I will be using that very much.   Gold Dust leaves a nice sheen, but it's very inyourface.  Still, a nice amount of product for just $1.

What did you find at your Dollar Tree this month?

OPI-Ate Berries in the Canaries

Hey loves.  Here is what I am currently wearing on my nails:
This is OPI's Ate Berries in the Canaries.  I did two coats in these pictures.  On my pinky finger, I did two coats of Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear in Celeb City- a great silver foil.   Just something different and edgy.
What are you currently wearing on your nails?

Wet 'n Wild-Duo Packages

Hey friends.  I found these duos from Wet 'n Wild packaged together and going for just $2.99!  I picked up the Don't Steal My Thunder trio because that is the only one that I don't have yet in my collection.  The mascara is nice too, but I have a ton that I have to go through yet.
 Don't Steal My Thunder:
 Swatches of Don't Steal My Thunder:
There are also duos with the fast dry nail polishes as well, but I have all the ones that I want from that collection.  (Also retailing for $2.99)  Have you seen these pop up where you live?
