I'm sorry that I haven't done many tutorials this month. I have had a lot of issues that have caused problems with my schedule, I've been an emotional mess, & due to the stress my skin is a wreck. Hope that you all understand. I am defiantly trying to get everything back together & hopefully will be filming regularly again soon. I am also going to try to catch up on a few request that I just never got around to doing.
Most of the stuff that I picked up this month was either on clearance, due to a sale, or part of a holiday collection or promo.
ELF 3 Piece Liquid Eyeliner Set- Target $3
ELF 5 Piece Nail Polish Set- Target $5
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Color in Save The Date & Lilac Chantilly- Walgreens $3 (clearance)

Sinful Colors Extra Shiny Lipgloss in Catch Me If You Can, Wink, & Sultry Flame- Walgreens $2
ELF Never Too Much 144 Piece Eyeshadow Palette- Target $15
Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in Vivacious Fuschia- Walgreens $4 (clearance)
I have heard about these for a while & have always wanted to try them. When I was looking through the colors they seemed rather bland or really light, except for this one. This is a sheer jelly/balm type of lipstick which is not what I tend to really like, especially when I'm buying such a bright color. I can't say that after that I really even gave this a chance to tell you anything else about it.
Maybelline Dream Mouse Blush in Pink Frosting- Walgreens $4 (clearance)
This is another item I have been hearing about & decided to try because it was on clearance. Talk about shimmer! There was so much glitter in this that a slight ray of direct light & your cheeks will look like a disco, & not in a good way. The formula was nice though & I wish Maybelline would stop putting glitter in their damn blushes, we are not 12!
Urban Decay The Revolution High-Performance Lash Curler- Sephora $20
This was one of the first things to go on my shopping list when I got my Sephora 20% off mailer. I was so excited to try this & guess that I should have read a few reviews first. I have tried quite a few open ended lash curlers but, they are always straight up & down & plastic. This thing is a death trap waiting to happen. I pinched myself, pulled on my lashes, & could only manage to get a strange crimp in them. Now, I'm not an idiot, I know how to curl my lashes. So I figured that there must be some trick to using this thing. NOPE, all you are going to accomplish is injuring yourself & having weird crimped lashes. I'll stick with my $1 ELF one.
Wet N Wild ColorIcon Ice Baby Glitter Nail Polish in Back Alley Deals- Walgreens $3
I saw these & was instantly drawn in, without even really thinking. Something dawned on me once I got it home though, I already have this; twice! Once I was over the initial love of super glitter polish I realized that these are a total rip off. You can get each of these colors in a full sized polish, & most of them for $2 from Sinful Colors. The others are available from Sally Hansen, Ice, OPI, & various other brands that have better quality & more quantity. Don't be pulled in by the glittery overload like I was.
As I mentioned in the video I am planning on moving my Love It or Ditch It's to my blog starting January. I figure that this will make it easier for you to just see the reviews on the stuff that you're interested in & not have to sit through a 20 minute video. You can subscribe to the blog for updates or I will be posting them on my facebook as well.
