July Essie Nail Polish Haul

I am obsessed with nail polish and thought I would start sharing my collection. This month I went to Target and saw that they has Essie nail polish. I have never tried their polish before but I have seen Essie in ads everywhere. The colors definitely caught my eye. I decided to try them out. I can now say that Essie is the next best thing to OPI. 
Here are the colors that I picked up this month. Love these colors!

This gloss is super cute and the packaging is awesome! Every lip gloss have a different guy on top that looks like he is doing a little strip tease! The packaging is supposed to release pheromones when you rub it and is shaped nice and thin so its perfect to keep in your back pocket without bulging. The scent of the gloss smells like creme brulee. Yum.   
My color- Kirk

Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadow $18
These shadows has some amazing colors. I love the texture and the feel of the shadows. They feel almost like a sponge and are very creamy in texture. They last all day without smudging and creasing. They are great by themselves or as a creamy base.

Bare Minerals Skincare 411 (My Skincare)

Purifying Facial Cleanser
Skin Type: All Skin Types

I call this cleanser the "lazy"cleanser. It does it all so if you like something that will take care of everything in one step...this is it! This cleanser removes makeup, (even gentle enough for removing eye makeup without the burn or sting) makes skin feel fresh, clean and hydrated. There are no parabens, artificial oils or fragrances.

Avocado Oil- Softens and provides hydration to the skin.

Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
Skin Types: All Skin Types & Sensitive Skin
Texture: Powder Form
I love this cleanser. Its like 2 cleansers in one. This cleanser is in powder form and is activated by water. The more water you use with the powder, the softer and more frothy the texture. This would be great for more everyday use. The less water you use, you can make it more like a paste with a gritty texture for great exfoliation. If you make it thick enough, you can use it as a mask! 
Some Beneficial Ingredients:
Oatmeal and Natural Rice Powder- these are soothing ingredients provide calming comfort to irritated, sensitive skin. 
Powerful Antioxidants- Vitamin E and Green Tea which will protect against environmental damage and will stimulate the skin for a healthy glow.
Aloe and Coconut- help maintain skins moisture

MAC Semi Precious Collection Haul

Mac Semi Precious Collection

Mineralize Eyeshadow $24
These Baked Mineral Eyeshadow are amazing. You can use these wet or dry. If you want a pretty shear sweep of color then use them dry. If you want the pigment to stand out and be more vibrant then use them wet. When I say use them wet, you can spray your eyeshadow brush with MACs Fix+ and then pack on the shadow to you brush and apply. You will notice it will make you shadow more metallic and intense. Looks amazing. The size of the shadows are nice too. They are way bigger than the normal size of a MAC eyeshadow.
