and i must say i am very proud of myself this weekend. got a few people checked off my shopping list already!!! normally i am panicking on Christmas Eve but i am hoping to avoid that at all costs this year. it's looking good so far... :)
September's BB5 - "Balancing Act"
1) Nicka K New York : Eye Light Crayon in "NEL007 Bronze"
size: 1.6 g (full size!)
retail value: $4.49
i was giddy when my eyes fell upon this item. giddy! a feeling i haven't had while opening beauty boxes as of late. but i have a thing for gold (this is actually a bronze, i know)... and crayons.
"Bronze" is not too bronze-y and is a very nice shimmer. i wouldn't use it as an all over color on the eyelids but it's great for giving off that POP in the corner of your eyes. prettttttty.
2) Natural Style by FUBU : Deep Conditioner & Co-Wash
size: 14 mL x 2
retail value: $9.99 (340 g)
haven't tried this.
plenty of oils.
what is a co-wash?
3) Sally Hansen : Toe Spacers
size: 1 pair (full size!)
retail value: $1.99
aaaaaand not going to use these. i've probably ever used toe spacers once or twice in my life.
4) My Beauty Spot : Nail Polish
size: 12 mL
retail value: $24.99 for a set of 6
aaaaaaalso not going to use this. the purple (with shimmer) is actually slightly darker than it appears in the photos.
5) Lashem : 3 in 1 Eye Bright
size: 5 mL
retail value: $40.00 (15 mL)
hmm. i've been told that eye creams are useful but i haven't seen its benefits just yet... so i will just hold onto this.
so one hit and the rest are misses for me. those aren't good numbers.
oh well. back to Doctor Who! i just watched a Steven Moffat-written episode and i can't stop thinking about it.
currently listening: "New Flame" by Chris Brown featuring Usher & Rick Ross
just watched: A Million Ways to Die in the West (not recommended)
still watching: Doctor Who Season 4 // Walking Dead Season 5 // Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 1
now reading: "When God Was a Rabbit" by Sarah Winman (still - i know! i sort of took a break...)
