Giveaway winner + mail + Wal-Mart haul + FOTD

Hello lovelies! I'm pleased to announce that the winner of my Skin MD Natural giveaway is...


...JustScarllet from Glamour, Glitter and Gold


Congratulations! I'll be contacting you soon by email for your shipping informations (=

I've got mail today ^^


I received my Mario Badescu products samples today! YEY! And look at all those goodies:

  • Enzyme Cleansing Gel
  • Special Cucumber Lotion
  • Flower & Tonic Mask
  • Kiwi Face Scrub
  • Ceramide Herbal Eye Cream
  • Drying Cream
  • Alow Moisturizer SPF 15
The little containers are so cute! I have a HUGE thing for cute little containers ^^ I'll definitely be reusing them!

My mother wanted to return some clothes she had bought from The Bay, and since their 70% sale was still going on, I decided to go with her. I hate The Bay, but I wanted to take a look at the things on sale. Of course, I found nothing interesting. Even on sale, everything is so expensive! Anyway, so we headed to Wal-Mart after that, and, of course, we browsed the skin care aisles. As I never buy skin care or makeup products at full price, I always look for those big yellow or red labels that they put on the shelves to indicate that a product is on sale, but I thought nothing was really interesting today. But my mother spotted interesting things with a tiny yellow label on them that I have not seen, and other products that were at ridiculously low prices. Here is what I bought:

Dr. Teal's Therapeutic Bath & Body Sensuality New Deep Amber Vanilla Chapped Hands Cream: As I just pan the hand cream I was using, I needed a new one to protect me from the harsh winter's cold. I couldn't resist the scent of this cream, and the texture is just what I was looking for!

Freeman Goodstuff Organics New Moisture Shea Butter & Vitamin E Whipped Body Butter: OK, this is a new product, and it's already on sale... for 1,64$! The scent is divine and the texture is p-e-r-f-e-c-t! As I LOVE body butters (even more when they are whipped!) so much... I bought two! Here, I tried to take pictures in various lightning to show you the texture of it:

Burt's Bees Bee Keeper - Classic, Featuring Four Beeswax Lip Balms: OMG! This stuff was on sale for 3,75$... instead of 23,97$! And you get four original Beeswax Lip Balms for not even the price of one! I bought one, and my mother bought the 3-4 others left on the shelf xD

How cute is this little tin? If I was a smoker, I would have definitely used it to carry my cigarettes or cigars LOL.

Burt's Bees Lip Balm Purse Pack - Mixed, Featuring a Pomegranate, a Honey, & two Beeswax Lip Balms: As for the previous Burt's Bees lip balms kit, this one is also 3,75$ instead of 23,97$. I grabbed one (mostly because of the cute purse!), and my mother bought the 2 left on the shelf, too!

Isn't this purse the cutest thing? I still don't know what I'll be doing with it...

Maybe I'll use it to carry my change around? Or as a makeup bag? Hmmm...

My mother was also hesitating between these two bonus packages:

The mascara is the same in both packages (Marcelle Volume Precision Mascara in Black), and the other product is a Marcelle Essentials eye-makeup remover. The difference between the two is that the one on the left is a gel eye makeup remover and the one on the right is an oil-free eye makeup remover. As I was more interest in the gel based one, and my mother in the other, we came to an agreement: she buys the gel base one and, back home, we switch products! Yes, because my sister in law gave me the bonus package with the oil free eye makeuop remover for Christimas (=

My FOTD is pretty boring today as I used the same eyeshadow as Saturday... but anyway!


Face
Marcelle Colour Cube Bronzing Powder - Multi-bronze
CoverGirl Cheekers Blush - ? (the label has been torned)

Eyes
Joe Fresh Duo Concealer - Light (used a as primer)
Physicians Formula Mosaic Cream Eye Shadow - Nutmeg Mosaic
Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner - Onyx
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara- Black

Lips
nothing

I attempted another FOTD with this Pysicians Formula palette because I wanted to try using my concealer as a primer to prevent the crasing, and I also noticed that Saturday, after like 3-4 hours, little bits of mascara were stuck in my crease, which I've never experienced with any eyeshadow before. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong...
