NYX sale!

Time for another deal! is having a 50% off sale on selected NYX items.

Click the image above to go to the sale!

Just use code NMS50 when checking out. The sale ends on May 8th. And make sure to only purchase items marked with SALE for the items that are half off. You also get free shipping if you order $40+ worth of products.

If this is your first purchase I would suggest trying out the single eyeshadow colors and round lipsticks. They're a steal at that price and are great quality! May I add, the eyeshadow color selections are overwhelming. There are so many colors and finishes to choose from. I don't even know where to start!

Happy shopping, everyone!

    Physician's Formula Haul @ CVS

    I bought all these items last week at CVS. I've never tried Physician's Formula before so the 75% off was great. Each item was around $3-4. CVS also has a beauty club program now where you get $5 back for every $50 purchase. This is a good program if you plan on buying a lot of drug store makeup. However, I did realize that CVS marks up some of their items compared to other drugstores. But the prices even out when you consider the "extra bucks" and sales.

    My friend had told me not to try PF's organic wear because it smelled like plastic to her. I didn't find mine to smell like anything, though. Maybe it's because I have a horrible sense of smell, haha.

    The bamboo wear powder and mineral wear powder had shimmer in it when swatched. I prefer a matte finish, so this really bothered me. However, when I wore it on my face it was not noticeable at all. In fact, the mineral wear powder gave a really nice finishing touch. Also, it is talc-free and has two slighty different shades in it, so you can mix and match.

    I have yet to try the bronzer but it seemed really powdery when I swatched it. The almay powder didn't do anything amazing, so I don't really have much to say about it. The french tip nail polish I also haven't tried.

    I like the fact that a lot of Physician's Formula's items are free of harsh chemicals and is great for acne prone or sensitive skin. It does cost a little more than other drugstore brands, but it's worth it when there's some sort of sale.

    Bottom line: I would definitely purchase more of PF's products (on sale of course, haha). Some of their packaging, in my opinion, is nice. And it's good to know that it is safe for sensitive skin, non-comedogenic, and paraben free.

    Nyx @ Hautelook!

    This deal was brought to my attention by Jamie from Public Service Beauty. Nyx products are available at Hautelook for 40% off! Hautelook is a site that sells brand name items for up to 75% off! The only downside is that it takes about 3 weeks for you to get your order. Please note that you do need a hautelook account to see the deals. If anyone needs an invitation to Hautelook, click here :)

    Nyx sells quality stuff. I have a few of their items, myself. I would say that they're between drugstore and higher end quality, but at drugstore (or less) prices! You will not be disappointed.

    The Nyx sale ends Monday 2/7 at 8:00 AM Pacific. A couple things are already sold out, so hurry.

    And ack! I still have not posted my hauls, swatches, and reviews! But they will be posted! Eventually...haha.

    Quick tip!

    I recently just bought a lot of new things I wanted to review and swatch but I haven't had the time because of school :\ So, I'll leave you with a quick money saving tip!

    Create an account with , add items you're interested in to your cart. Wait a day or two, and tarte should email you a 20% off code to purchase your items! I really like tarte's packaging and palettes. I also think their "lights, cameras, lashes" mascara works really well in separating lashes. It is my favorite mascara so far. Also, it's great that they're so "green." So if you've always wanted to try tarte, do so with 20% off!
