MOT- Lunch Date

I went out to lunch with my husband and his co-workers and this is what I wore.

The polo shirt is from Aeropostale. I got the brown leather belt from Target. My denim shorts are from Kohls and I'm wearing coral ballet flats by Rock & Republic. This is probably my most worn shoe this summer. I just love them. Below is a closer pix of these flats.
For my accessories, I wore a big white watch, my BCBG coral and turquoise bangle, a white pyramid style bracelet from Forever 21 and a gold chain and coral bead bracelet I made.


Here is my eye look.
I used the Benefit creaseless cream shadow in Bunny Hop on the lid, the reddish pink color in the NYX Perpetual palette on the crease and the burgundy color in the Wet n Wild Knock on Wood palette on the outer corners of my eyes.
Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to ask questions or leave a comment.

MOT - My Outfit Today

The white shorts are from Kohls.  The black ribbed tank is from Wal-mart. I got the plaid shirt from Wal-mart a long time ago. It's from the Miley Cyrus line.  The black leather belt is from Old Navy. The black high heeled combat boots are from Ross.

This star ring is one of my faves and I got it at Forever 21. I finished the look with this black leather cuff from Kohls.
Here is the eye look I did today. I used my Tarte Royal Collection Palette.

PHYSICIANS FORMULA Mineral Wear Airbrushing Kabuki Brush Review

I never thought I would find a brush that could compare to my Sigma F80 flat top until I tried the Physicians Formula Kabuki Brush. This was truly love at first swipe.  According to the packaging, it's the "Softest Brush Ever" and I totally agree. Its flat shape and ultra dense bristles is perfect for buffing your foundation for a beautiful airbrushed finish. I myself prefer to use cream or liquid foundation and this has worked very well in smoothing it out. The density and feel of this brush is pretty much the same as that of the sigma F80 so there is only one thing that makes this brush stand out more (especially for a bargain shopper like me)  and yup, it's the PRICE. This brush retails for about $10-$11 but if you have a ROSS in your area then you might even be able to get it for $3.49. Now if you can't get to a ROSS store or have no luck finding one, here is a deal idea that you can do at Ulta.

Physicians Formula is buy 1 get 1 50%off online so hopefully it's also on sale at the store.
Buy 1 brush for $10.99
get another 1 for $5.49
Total = $15.49
Use $3.50 off coupon from
Grand Total = $11.99 or $5.99 each

If it's not on sale at the store and you don't want to wait then you could still get a brush for $10.99 and use the $3.50 off coupon making it $7.49 which is still an awesome price.

So what are you waiting for? GO....RUN...NOW!!!

I've been hearing a lot of good things about these 2 new products from Revlon and so I just had to try them. Fortunately, there's a gread deal going on right now for both. If you have a CVS in your area then you're in luck. Right now you can get the new Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation and the Just BittenKissable Balm Stain for a pretty awesome price. Here's how:

Spend $15 on Revlon Cosmetics and get $6 Extra Care Bucks (if you're not familiar with CVS, Extra care bucks is money/credit you earn on certain items that you buy and it prints out with your receipt at the end of the transaction)

Buy Revlon Colorstay whipped foundation- Sale Price $9.49
and Revlon Kissable Balm Stain - Sale price $6.99

Use a $2 off Revlon Foundation coupon you can print out and a

You will end up paying $13.48 but getting $6 extra care bucks
