Picked up a major haul of Essie polishes!!! WOOT!
LOVE LOVE ESSIE! I can't get enough of how creamy and buttery the color is and LOVEEE that they are being sold practically everywhere.. I purchased some of these at Target and the rest at Walgreens and I really love that they are priced so affordable as well!
Picked up some things at Costco as well.. I'll have enough shaving cartridges to last me a lifetime probably.. I love that it comes with 12 cartridges because once the moisturizing band wears off (and it does wear off awfully quickly) I toss the cartridge even if the blade hasn't completely dulled. But I really wish they would include another shave handle.. I mean 12 cartridges for one handle seems a bit excessive no? hahah. I think this was priced at $21 to $24 bucks which is a steal considering if you purchase it at the drugstore it's typically 1 handle w/ 2 cartridges and it'll run you roughly $7 to $9 dollars depending on whether it's on sale or not.
Also picked up some Neutrogena spray on SPF (you all know how much I LOVEEE spray on SPF's.. I blogged about it here.) I don't quite remember how much this was but I don't believe it was over $20 bucks.. it comes with two can's of SPF 45 with Helioplex which is similar to the asian PA+++ if I'm not mistaken and also comes with a tube of SPF and SPF chap stick as well.
I can't talk enough about how much I L-O-V-E Milani metallic liquif'eye eyeliner pencils. They are creamy, glide on super easy so easy in fact you may want to wait a few seconds after applying just to let it "set" before you blink your eyes or it can smudge a tad.
I definitely feel like they are on par with much more expensive brands that you would find at Sephora's or department stores at a fraction of the price. I think these are most commonly compared to Urban Decay eyeliners which are priced at about $18 bucks a pop whereas the Milani version are roughly $6 to $7 dollars a pop. Which is important when you use eyeliner like there's no tomorrow like I do bahahaha.
My friend Margaret got me these neon colored nail polishes from F21!! Thanks Marg! :) These are such pretty colors and really great especially if you want to get in on the neon trend but are a bit color shy they are a super fun pop of color on your nails.

I've never been much of a lipstick girl honestly.. I've been a lip gloss girl through and through once I discovered lip gloss in my early 20's that's all I've used! But lately because of my OOTD's I've found that my lip gloss really doesn't have very much color pay off and I sorta feel like my lips look so blah and wanted to experiment with some lipsticks.
Luckily Walgreen's was having a buy one get one off for Revlon lipsticks and I've long read on beauty blog's about how awesome Revlon's lipsticks were so I decided to take the plunge and went home with these 4 colors!
I have to say I'm super impressed with these lipsticks they're very creamy and go on super smooth.. and the color is AMAZING so VIBRANT!
Picked up these super adorable Hello Kitty slippers.. which my dogs now think are their chew toys *sigh* haha and some super cute dresses! I <3 Target clothes so much I can't even say how awesome I love their clothes!! I've worn the one on the left about a half a dozen times already and every time I wear it I get complimented on it at least once a day if not more. They seriously make the cutest clothes and are super affordable prices.
That's it for my DC haul!! :)
