Purchases of the Week

I'm still in the process of getting some more tidbits for my room and a bracelet holder was definitely something I needed. A while back I saw someone used a paper towel holder as a bracelet holder so I got this silver one from Walmart for no more than $2 and it works perfectly. 
This mask is supposed to brighten up your complexion, I thought I would give it a try.


Is it just me or does it seem that Secret deodorant sucks now? I don't know if they reformulated their product, but for the last 2 years every Secret deodorant I've tried just doesn't work well for me. My mom, who has used Secret since I was born, said that it doesn't work the same for her either. Anyway, I wanted to try this new one by Degree. Also, a lot of you may have noticed on blogs that Philosophy had makeup products at Big lots, I checked out 2 in my area and unfortunately the only thing they had was 1 color of cream blush, lip gloss and this one blush/bronzer that I managed to find after some digging. I also picked up an e.l.f eye shadow brush for $1. If you don't have this brush, get it! It's my favorite brush to apply shadow to my lid with now. 
I also wanted to try some more F21 products since I've had a lot of luck with their polishes. I picked up these makeup remover wipes since they seem to be really moist and they were only $2.90 for 30 of them. I also picked up an eye shadow for $1.
When I was checking out, the girl at the counter said that the company that makes MAC shadows also makes the shadows that F21 sells. I don't know if that's true or not, but I was impressed with the quality of this shadow. I used a paint pot as a base and this shadow was pretty pigmented considering that it's a light color, it didn't crease on me and it lasted throughout my 8 hour work day. I definitely plan to pick up more colors. 
Philosophy blush/bronzer duo. It's not as pigmented as I hoped it would be, but it's buildable so I can make it work.
I plan on coloring my hair this week with Revlon's soft black hair color. I always go with a soft black color b/c after a few washes it fades into the perfect chocolate brown. 
This is my favorite thing I picked up from Big lots. 
 It's perfect for travel and the colors are extreamly pigmented. 



Were any of you able to get some Philosophy stuff at Big lots? I hear Ellen Tracy stuff will be there too if it's not already. (Fyi, her Peony Rose perfume smells sooo good!)

Hello!
I like the idea of using the paper towel rack as a bracelet holder. I am still looking for a clear vase that I can use to hold my sunglasses. For months I have been coloring my hair, non-stop, from black to red then black again. I did Black the last time, stayed for a week, faded away & now the red is there, I give up. I am so effin' up my hair. Never tried F21 beauty stuff, but I wanna try those wipes now. That good deal. & that E.L.F. kit, great find, loving those colors.
