My First Blog Sale Haul : Dior + Lipstick Queen.

This was my first blog sale haul. It was completely unintentional. I was looking for blog sales to post on my other blog, Beauty Blogger Sales, and I came across Jules Darling. A sweet beauty blog with amazing reviews and an even more amazing blog sale! I couldn't believe the deals I scored on these 2 products.

Diamonds and Make Up are For Ever

How could I resist?
This wasn't you typical product or collection launch, this was 200 brand new eyeshadows with 30 custom creations from the makeup artist team members. How cool is that?!!

Bunnies Chasing 100% Pure Carrots

How awesome is this set from 100% Pure? It features a full size Nourishing Carrot Scrub and an awesome Makeup Bag! See... I went in for the cosmetic clutch, as I need a makeup bag a little larger than the one I have now, but I was tempted by the extreme value of this set. For only $39, I purchased the $35 clutch and scored the scrub and reusable storage box for only $4 more!! Holla!!

Measuring 8.5 in x 4.5 in, the Bunnies Chasing Carrots clutch is constructed from 100% cotton and has been printed with non-toxic soy and vegetable inks. Bunnies on the outside with an occasional logo, and the inside reveals all of the carrots that those hungry bunnies have been chasing! This is perfect for traveling with my new Cream Foundation and sponge applicator. I appreciate the larger size and flexible design, but I do wish it had a different frame/closure than the kiss-lock so it was a little less like having a purse in my purse. Retailing for $35 it is available in store and online.

Emerald and Ash: Hubble + Cuddle Butt swatches

Based off of the Hubble Space Telescope, this silver foil polish was created to mimic the outer shell of the Hubble. The polish is also filled with gold and black flakies, which represent the solar arrays and various sensors that cover the telescope. This is a metallic foil that reflects light beautifully and covers the nail in two coats. Hubble can be worn with or without a top coat, though wearing a top coat will prolong the life of the polish.

It was impossible for me to capture the true look of Hubble: mixed into the silver chrome finish are flex of gold, barely detectable but they give this lacquer such an unexpected amount of depth. This is a textured lacquer that goes on a thick. I applied three coats to properly translate bottle to nail.

Misfits on Monday. After Hours Nail Polish Review.

I love this slate gray. Riddled with holographic shimmer, After Hours by +Misfits on 8th is a perfect Fall/Winter shade. A neutral in it's own right, I applied 3 coats ofAfter Hours for full opacity and I do recommend a high shine top coat to keep it from dulling or edging. Given to me at a Las Vegas press party, Misfits on 8th is known for their DIY personalized and customized kits. Head over to their site now and discover how easy it is to make that perfect shade. xoxo •Nancy-Lee

Foot Therapy ; an Exfoliation Experience by Skinall

From +Cosmoprof North America comes KocoStar/Skinall, a Brand whose product line is centered around the benefits of paper masks, expanding to the market with Nail tip Therapy, Hair Therapy, and of course, Foot Therapy. This is the first in a trio that I am putting to the test. I open the package and discover a sealed, plastic, butterfly-shaped bag... it takes me a while to realize I need to cut the seam so I can separate the halves and put my feet in the wings, which are really booties.
