99 Cents Only Store Haul

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm here with another 99 cents only store haul. So lets get into what I found/bought this time.

Youtube video of haul:




I saw this plush throw and had to have it is so pretty. Also it was $1.99 which a good price for a this really soft throw and you can never have too many blankets right? I also so picked up 3 of the glow in the dark goody hair clips because I wear them everyday and they wear out. So I just throw them away when they start to look used up. Also I really like these pattern/colors. I always buy more than one of the goody brand because they are more than $.99 at other stores and they are made better than off brands.


I found more Milani Bella eyeshadows in colors that I don't own. Since I love the bella shadows I had to pick up these three. Also they are usually $5 or $6 each. I got 03 Bella Cappuccino Satin Matte, 05 Bella Taupe Satin Matte and 30 Bella Diamond Highlighter/Shimmer. I also found more Milani nail polish that I had to pick up too. I got 12 Sugar Rush and another bottle of 203 quick dry top coat because you can never have too much top coat and I really like milani top coats.


My dad got me this selfie stick because I don't own one and he thought I could use one so I try it out. It says on the package to download an app but it worked with out the app so if you was wondering. It works really good for it being $1.99.



I also picked of a few storage containers which I did not put in the video but still wanted to show them. I two of the shoe size for my nail polishes and really like they have clips so lids don't slid off. I got three of the larger sizes for some storage for holiday stuff that I did not containers for. They were $1.99 which a really good price for this size.

Well that's it for now and I hope you enjoyed see what I got from 99 cents only store.

Second Eye Look: Makeup Revolution New-trals vs Neutrals eyeshadow palette

Hello my MJF stars,
I have another eye look using the Makeup Revolution New-trals vs Neutrals eyeshadow palette. So lets get into what I created this time.


Products I used:
NYC City Proof 24hr Base primer Universal

Mode: eyelid
Neutral: crease
Style: inner corner eyelid
Custom: outer v and lower lash
Cool: brow bone

Ross Dress For Less Hauls

Hello my MJF stars,
I have a few Ross Dress For Less hauls to show you. So lets get into what I found at Ross. 

Youtube video of hauls:




You know I love my Crocs so when I found these Crocs in Ocean/Ice blue for $14.99. You know I had to get them and I love the color.


I saw this Sea life plastic Bowl for $5.99 and had to get it because I love turtles and sea horses. I thought I can use it for my salads that I make during the spring and summer.
I also saw these Silver Sea shells large candle holder for $7.99 and small candle holder $4.99 so I had to get both. They are so pretty.


I love Yankee Candles. When I smelled island party 12 scented tealight candles I had to get them and they were $3.99
I saw a Himalayan salt candle holder when I got my crocs but did not buy it. So I went back and it was gone. I went again and they got whole bunch of the Himalayan salt candle holders back in so I picked up one which was $3.99. I'm have been loving it.




I also was looking at the mail holders and found this Black wood carved mail holder that I had to have but it had some damages on it on the back and some dings so I asked if they get me some off so it was $7.99 and they gave 10% off for the damages so it was $7.19. I'm using it to display my makeup palettes and it holds more than the blue one I got awhile ago.

I hope you liked seeing what I found at Ross.

Products I used:
Wet N Wild wildshine protective base Coat 
Sinful Colors Sweeten the Teal
Nyc Shine in a minute 202 Grand Central Station Top Coat 

As I said I bought this Sinful Colors nail polish in Sweeten The Teal and finally got the chance to put it on my nails. I'm not a fan of texture polishes because they chip so fast on me. I really love the color its green teal with gold shimmer in it. It took three coats to be opaque. I was pleasantly surprised that it last a while without chipping which was nice. I would recommend this polish if you love teal, glitter and texture polishes.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for Manicure Mondays.

St. Patrick's Day 2017 Eye Look

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm here to show you my St. Patrick's Day themed eye look that I created and wore on St. Patrick's Day. So lets get into what I created this time.


Products I used:
Jordana Eyeshadow Base Eye Primer
Covergirl Shadow Pencil Flamed out
Wet N Wild Boardwalk Boozing Eyeshadow palette:
Lime green: Eye lid
Green: crease, outer v and bottom lash
Orange and Yellow: above Crease
Wet N Wild single eyeshadow brulee: Brow Bone
W7 liquid eyeliner black
Kiss Strip lash adhesive
Lunatick cosmetic labs Glamour Ghoul Glitter Ghouls Gold
Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Volum Mascara Very Black

I wanted to do a green, orange and gold eye look for the theme of St. Patrick's Day. I pulled out my Wet N Wild Boardwalk Boozing Eyeshadow palette because it has the colors I wanted to use. I used the neon lime color on the eyelid and the green in the crease and outer v. I then put the yellow and orange color from the palette mixed them together because I wanted a more yellow orange then the red tone orange that was in the palette. I really love how these two colors created the perfect orange I was looking for in this eye look. I put brulee on my brow bone. I decided that I wanted to put some gold glitter on top of my black eyeliner but I don't own a glitter glue or gold eyeliner so I used lash adhesive to have the ghouls gold to stick to my eye lid. I think it came out nice but I might have try something else next time. I really love how this eye look came out.

Works Like A Charm and I'm Clover It/ St. Patrick's Day Mani

Hello my MJF stars,
Since Friday is St. Patrick's Day I decided to do a St. Patrick's themed mani for Manicure Mondays so lets see what I did this years mani.

Outside light with flash

Products I used:
Wet N Wild wildshine protective base coat 
Sinful Colors Works Like a Charm and I'm Clover It
Nyc Shine in a minute 202 Grand Central Station Top Coat

Since I picked up two Sinful Colors nail polishes from this years  St. Patrick's day collection which is called luck of the style. I used Like a Charm as the base color which has a really good formula. I love the color which is a pale mint green with gold shimmer. I then decided to put I'm Clover It on two of my nails to give a little pop. I really like it on top of Like a Charm. It has dark and light green glitter with Silver Clovers. It was a pain to get the clovers which is a bummer. It similar to last years glitter polish but with a silver three leaf clover glitter than with a gold four leaf clover (shamrock) glitters. I wish they did something more different this year than last. So if you have last years you might want to skip this years but if you missed getting a bottle last year or you are like me and love green glitter because you don't get many clovers in the bottle. I would pick it up and definitely get Like A Charm which is a unique color.  

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for St. Patrick's/ Manicure Monday.

Review: Makeup Revolution New_Trals vs Neutrals

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm here to do a review of the Makeup Revolution New-Trals vs Neutrals palette that I picked up at Ulta recently. I wanted to do some swatches and give you my thoughts of this palette.

Front and back of box

Here is the box the palette comes in with has a little picture of the palette. Like said about the Mermaid forever palette is that I wish they had a bigger picture or a sample of the palette at ulta so you can see the eyeshadows. I bought this palette because I saw ShanShortcakeBeauty did a haul and eye look using it and I had to have it. So I hope this helps my followers to decide if you want it or pass buying it.

Front and back of palette
This palette packaging it different than the mermaid forever in that the front is a matte texture unlike the shinny smooth texture. I like both which is not a big deal for me.  Its the same size of the Ultra eye Contour light & shade palette. 

Inside palette with names of eyeshadows

Close up of Eyeshadows top no flash indoor lighting and bottom with flash

As you can see it also comes with a big mirror like the Mermaid forever palette but this palette has square pans unlike circle ones. I like the square pans better which is easier to get brush in to get the product. You get more product in this palette then the Ultra eye contour shade & light palette but you get less product then the Mermaid Forever palette. It does come with double ended brush like the Ultra Contour palette that I really like. It has a flat brush side for packing on the eyeshadow and round dome brush on the other side for blending and also packs on color too. So lets see how they swatch right?!

Swatches No primer with Flash:
 Top: Bias, Neutral, Personal, Vogue, Trend, New-Tral, Tone and Custom.
Bottom: Cool, Style, Partial, Mode, Adapt, Buff, Suit and Strong


Swatches no primer with flash:
Top: Bias, Neutral, Personal and Vogue
Bottom: Trend, New-Tral, Tone and Custom

Swatches no primer with flash:
Top: Cool, Style, Partial, and Mode
Bottom: Adapt, Buff, Suit and Strong

They are all pretty pigment for being swatched on bare skin with no primer. They are all warm tone eyeshadows which I have been loving lately and this palette has a mix of mattes and shimmers which is I love. They are soft and blend nicely with out blending away. I love the shimmer shades in this palette they are so pretty and not chunky. I love Tone its a pretty red gold shimmer and yes I said I love a red eyeshadow which you know I'm not big red fan. I have used this palette to create two eye looks and like both eye looks. I think I like this palette more the Ultra Contour palette because it has shimmer eye shadows. If you like neutral eye shadows and like a mix of shimmer and mattes you need this palette. I think for $10.00 is a good deal and I payed $7.08 because I got it when Ulta had buy one get one 50% off with a $3.50 off of $15.00 coupon. I really enjoy this palette and I know I will be creating many eye looks with it. 
I have been loving every product that I got from Makeup Revolution and can't wait to try more.  Let me know which Makeup Revolution products you been loving and I might have to check them out.
