Kmart Makeup Haul

image

After the holidays although broke, I’ve been scrounging around for deals. While in Kmart, I noticed more and more yellow stickers as I was breezing through the aisles and made multiple stops. I’ve never noticed before how many markdowns on cosmetics they do!
Care to take a gander?

Elf Eyelid Primer in “Pearl” – $0.75

I’m not going to lie, I don’t use expensive primer at all. I actually use elf’s eyelid primer but the nude colored one which is the only kind I’ve seen until now. Maybe I’m blind? I’ve never seen it in pearl before.
image

Here you see the difference between the two. All in all, the original is my favorite due to the fact that it’s matte. The problem with the pearl is that it’s shiny and glittery like an eyeshadow and it took me a twice build up to cover it. It works though, you just have to work with it.
image


Rimmel Liquid Cheek Tint in “Pop of Pink” – $1.64

I’ve never used a liquid tint or blush before and the price took me in.
image

Above you can see it blended and unblended on my forearm. It took a twice build up to get it to really show much color  but it doesn’t take much. It goes on smoothly and blends on the skin perfectly and looks very natural.
image

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in “Stargazer”  and “Solstice”-$1.49 each

Generally, I’m not much of a shimmery lip product person but the price for me was worth a shot to see if I could actually find something gleaming I’d like.
image
image
I had to post this so ya’ll could see my natural no flash skin tone and lip color.For some reason with flash, I end up multiple shades darker.
image
image

The” Stargazer” added a champagne/taupe tint and “Solstice”  pulled my undertones for a deeper red. The shimmer surprisingly is pretty muted and the application was pretty smooth. One thing I absolutely hate about certain products is when they do that weird, cake like rolling and this doesn’t thankfully!
image

Sinful Colors in”Galax-sea”. Sinful Shine in “Prosecco” and “Wisp” – $1.49 each

Everyone and their momma’s know that I absolutely adore sinful colors no matter what collection. I was happy to find some of the “Sinful Shine” because it holds true to the collection even before a topcoat! I know they retail at $1.99 but cheaper is still better ^^

image

Fergie Nail Polish in “Hollywood Walk of Fame” – $1.74

Out of the Fergie collection, I’ve only used the gel liner (which ended up replacing my Maybelline Eye Studio gel liner at like half the price with same lasting power). This is just a clear base with a shit ton of colored stars. It’ll definitely be an overlay on a solid.

I hope you guys check out your local areas too and end up with dope finds!

Soon I should be posting up a NYX haul and maybe a few others. I’ve gotten things recently and just haven’t gotten around it em.

Thanks for stopping by!

Post Christmas Thrift

Happy New Year everyone! Well… 2nd day of the new year! I hope everyone’s was safe and fun (:
In my previous post, I said I’d post on my most recent thrift so here it goes….

Family Thrift Center, Virginia Beach, Va
I thrift a lot with my mom so December 26th she said let’s go so she took me to this place. I didn’t take much pics inside as it was crowded as Hell. Here’s what I got:

image

Upon my arrival, I noticed no signs anywhere indicating there were any sales going on like how Goodwill and Salvation army have tag color sales. It was over stuffed and the aisles made me feel like I was going to have a nose bleed. Mom said “give it a chance and check around”… Well ma it’s kinda hard when you’re getting hit by other people pushing carts -. –

image

I did notice they had “categories “such as this one as well as a “skate &  surf” rack containing brands like Volcom and Hurley. This rack in particular had like 4 items and we’re definitely dated and you could tell why they were there. The skate and surf racks were super stuffed, it was so hard to go through.

Let’s talk pricing…
At Pacsun you’d be able to find a brand new tee on sale for $15. Why the hell would I get a used one for $10 here??  The “boutique”  clothing seriously ranged from $15-$60 and 85% didn’t even have tags. Yeah the pricing in general made me ask myself who the hell would spend that much at a thrift store for items you’d be able to get cheaper at somewhere like Plato’s Closet even especially because they pre-sort the shitty out of the group for you. The racks have separate pricing ranging from normal and dropping down to 99 ¢ and trust me, I checked those first and could see why they were on that rack as well.
Housewares was a mess and had half melted  candles  missing wicks for $7… I’ve found 50¢ full candles at Habitat thrift so hell no.

On a random note, this is one thing I found and literally lol’d at

image

Destiny's child camera case

                            Damn I shoulda bought it!

Now, let’s skip all of the bs I went through and get to the stuff that I thought was actually worth buying!

image

image

I have no idea what drew me to this Hound’s tooth blazer. It’s reversible with red inside (which there’s no way In hell I’d wear it that way).

BRAND: unknown
PRICE: $5

image

Merrell Wynne dress

This to me was my best find of that night! After some research, I found out it’s a Merrell Wynne Dress. I’ve always known Merrell was known for “adventure” shoes for hiking and stuff but never knew they made dresses. To my surprise, it was priced at $75 retail not on sale and I got it for $10 with tags. I’ve never had a dress with moisture wicking inner slip and kimono sleeves o_o Yeah , I had to have it for summer or warmer spring days!

BRAND: Merrell
PRICE: $10

image

image

My mom originally told me not to get this because it’s make me look old buuuuut Idk what drew me to this dress either. Most possibly it was the detail of the upper portion.

BRAND: Mark
PRICE: $4

image

This is more of a summer dress if you had to put it into a category other than underwear which it isn’t. Yeah yeah, it looks it but it ain’t. I’ve never heard of the brand Lucy Love though but that’s the wonderful part of thrifting.

BRAND:Lucy Love
PRICE: $3

image

2 inches short of being a dress so this will be paired with leggings since it covers my butt

BRAND: Julie’s Closet
PRICE: $2

image

The top and bottoms were thrifted that day. The top is a no sleeve. I’m generally not a polka dot, ruffle type of person but the tie up top is what sold me! I was searching for spring and summer bottoms and I couldn’t understand why shorts were priced around $7 and up. However, the capris I found were shoved between a different rack and I’m pretty happy I found them. I’m not much of a Capri person either but I figured it’d go well with a few things I own so I paired it with that top.  Those wedges were not thrifted as they were in clearance from Wet Seal.

TOP BRAND: Old Navy
PRICE: $2
CAPRI BRAND: Old Navy
PRICE: $2

Black wrap watch

Everytime I’m in the jewelry area, it’s intoxicated with dead battery items and  crappy costume jewelry. On my way out, I saw this and was surprised as Hell for it to still be ticking and even have the correct time! It’s real leather however, I have no idea about the rest of it. It’s a Japanese  quartz though (as my boyfriend who has an extensive and expensive watch collection featuring citizens and his newest Motorola smart watch told me).  The back says it’s stainless steel and the brand on the front is so tiny, I can’t make it out.

BRAND: unknown
PRICE: $2

image

The boyfriend and I’s new year collage ; I wore that top for eve due to the fact that us Asians like to think stripes rep dollars and polka dots rep coins soo there ya go!

I apologize for the scanty post but I know I keep saying I’ll post more and I will!
Thanks for stopping by!

Funky FANGERS and crappy polish remover (-.-)

ImageAs most of y’all know, I’m frugal when possible. I’m not one to constantly buy OPI, China glaze, Zoya, etc. From time to time sure, otherwise, not so much. I’ve posted Funky Fingers branded nail polish from Five Below previously, well here’s some more!

Image

Base-Clear

Glitter specs– Rounded aqua and silver

Image

Base– Clear

Glitter specs– Purple, pink and gold

Image

Base– Creamy lilac

Glitter specs– Black and silver

Image

As you can see, Fro yo! comes out just as if you would have done the “jelly sandwich” design all in one step! Lady Chalotte just reminds of me of Mardi Gras and Love Park reminds me of a fancy winter lol.

As usual, these were 3/$5.

Are they the best brand ever? Not compared to Sinful Colors which I do love to heart but it comes out nicely if shaken/rolled well.

Image

I bought this previously at Walmart…I was like “OOOH SCRAWBURRY SCENTED!” Yeah… not so much. I was tired of using 100% acetone to take off glitter and making my hands look like Dave Chappelle’s lips.

I bought this because:

1. I thought it was a reasonable price (around 3 bucks…cheap right? uh..yeaah…)

2. It supposedly smelled like strawberry

3. It includes vitamin E and grape seed oil.

The bottle states that it removes:

-Nail polish

-Nail glue

-Glitter polish

-and more (OOoOOoOh)

Image

The instructions say to press firmly and wipe, repeat as needed.

Let’s take a look…

Image

As instructions stated, I “moistened cotton ball/round”, “massaged nail bed, pressing firmly from cuticle to nail tip” .”wiped clean and repeated”

…..I did and repeated for over 10 minutes as I re-moistened my cotton pad.

Yeah..well this is what happened…

2014-03-09_05-40-08_977

Yup…this is the turn out.

I ended up saying screw it and rubbed and grinded like normal remover and shit still doesn’t work -.-

I’d say you get what you pay for but then again, I’ve used some stuff cheaper than this that actually worked in a little than the time surpassed with this.

As usual, thanks for stopping by and more posts are to come!

Plato’s Closet Grab Bag Event 7/13/13:Crazy as shit.Nuff Said.

2013-07-13_09-53-03_212

Every time I’m supposed to go to this, something comes up.

Well, if my friend Steph didn’t excite me and continuously text me and call me to get my ass up and go, I wouldn’t have gone lol.So, THANKS STEPH!<3

For those of you who don’t know what the hype is all about:

1 Brown bag $15- You fill it up with as much clearance items as possible (stamped with like 50% off in red)

Otherwise, the whole store is 10% off.

2013-07-13_10-07-03_681We went to the Plato’s in Virginia Beach, Va. Yes, I expected it to be packed but not AS packed as it actually was.

Here’s a little taste of the chaos (ooh Taste of Chaos<3)

2013-07-13_11-04-55_341 2013-07-13_10-45-02_644 2013-07-13_10-44-59_596Ya damn right I picked all I could  AND THEN tried to stuff the bag on the floor. Did it work out? Hell yes.

Le bf came up to me and was like “well..instead of getting another bag, how about you fill the rest of mine?” SCOREEEEE

2013-07-13_11-45-38_541 2013-07-13_11-25-11_533We stood in the maze of a line (which it seemed like 5 lines were conjoining) for hours. Yes, hours. Was it hot as hell in there with all of that sweaty shopping enthusiasts? Yup. Can’t complain TOO much…one of the staff were passing out paper plates for self fanning lol THANKS GIRL AT VA BEACH PLATO’S CLOSET!

2013-07-13_11-45-48_367

Well there goes my fan =/2013-07-13_12-23-12_125 2013-07-13_12-28-11_207 2013-07-13_12-40-16_690 2013-07-13_12-40-22_429 2013-07-13_12-42-07_476

Thanks b for carrying the bags! I was shocked he offered only because everyone was irritated yet he waiting patiently with us<3 Love you!

2013-07-13_12-45-12_399

Just realizing Steph and I were both wearing Mary Janes, figured it’d be a pic moment…however B stuck his foot in and whilephoto-bombing he said “YOLO” -__-

2013-07-13_12-49-30_3

Even though it was scary as hell to see him do this due to the fear of the bags ripping and me being the “fuck it meme” in real life, innovation is always at it’s best with us lol
2013-07-13_12-54-15_13 2013-07-13_12-57-04_589 2013-07-13_13-02-02_808

I thought it was pretty innovative to stuff my stuff in the bag that was in the brown bag lol

So thankfully I had cash. All we heard was

“WHO’S GOT CASH?!-Staff

“WHY HUH?!?!”-Me

“COME OVER TO THIS REGISTER!”-Staff

“SHORTER LINE?!?!”-Me

“YUP COME ON”-Staff

“STEPH, B, I GOT THIS, LEZGOOOO!!!!!!!!”-Me

2013-07-13_13-06-20_237

Although people were lying about our “group”(and when I say group I mean us and the nice 3-5 people behind and in front of us)

Nail Polish Haul: Dollar Tree.Fuck.Yeah.

2013-07-09_22-41-49_709 2013-07-09_22-41-37_485

Let’s Talk Sinfully

As I’ve mentioned before, a bottle of Sinful Colors nail polish retails at about $1.99 a bottle.

As tagged in my previous nail designs, I use these lines a whole damn lot.

Cheap? Good. Quality? Good.

Even cheaper? Friggin’ fantabulous.

I’ve been collecting bottles from Dollar Tree lately.

Some of you may think “Oh it’s old as shit.” “It’s discontinued.” Blahzeh blah.

Fuck that noise. I’ve purchased 2 bottles previously and have found them at Walmart & Walgreens same exact name and everything. It’s fine. I’ll live with spending $8 on all of these instead of $16 which could go in my 4×4.

2013-07-09_23-24-49_849 2013-07-09_23-22-19_942 2013-07-09_23-29-48_840

Keep in mind: I only had time for 1 coat per nail. I’m sure you’ll see it in the future with 2 coats. For now, life is happening.

Recent Thrift Haul : Discounts of DOOOOM

Sadly, DAVs doesn’t have normal discount days like other stores do and I went to the Chesapeake, Va DAV day before 4th of July….aka on a Wednesday aka the day I SHOULD be at Salvation Army for 50% off day *sigh* HOWEVER….

Image

2013-07-03_19-51-41_7322013-07-03_19-51-31_267

Saw this as I was leaving at their “boutique” section and contemplated for 10 seconds if it was fake or not o.O

2013-07-03_18-40-06_610

Yes. Brand new from Steinmart. However….I wouldn’t wear something that looks like the sewing machine were vomiting old bobbins.

2013-07-03_18-53-53_195

Almost every DAV I’ve been too has their racks way too packed. I had the hardest time to sift through jeans and because they close their fitting rooms early it sucks..

Yes, Yes. I had a “thrift outfit” on to be able to try over. HOWEVER, again, area was too packed.2013-07-03_19-06-41_923 2013-07-03_19-35-51_567 2013-07-03_18-18-16_671 2013-07-03_18-16-27_996 2013-07-03_18-14-54_915

Okay Okay before I get bitched at…I thought about this long long long and hard hard hard. Yes, at first I was completely disgusted in thought. I’ve always told myself NO NO NO to shit like this thrifted. I couldn’t get over the cuteness of this because I’m tired of 2 piece bikinis and like monokinis better. This one to me just stuck out and I couldn’t help myself. It’s been through the wash a few times. A few more to go before I get myself to wear it >.>2013-07-03_20-51-48_159

I’ve also been going to the gym (Planet Fitness) every other day…well unless I’ve done something strenuous already, then that constitutes me not going. Call me a slacker, idgaf. I’ve been on my journey for a month and a half so far. I’ll get there eventually. I’m not quitting just because it’s going slow. Call me a fatass once I’ve stopped.

The top (Head) And shorts (Jockey) came from TJ Maxx in that above picture with the cart. I usually wear Nikes or Reeboks  to work out but you see those purple and grey kicks? They were $14 at Walmart (Danskin) and have been working just fine. For you sneaker heads who are probably like “OMFG EW WALMART SHOES”…..BITCH PLEASE STFU. You act like all of the things you own are SOOOO different. Little do people know but some places (Factories/Manufacturers) actually make all the same shit and just mark em with different labels so I don’t wanna hear/read it. *Takes a deep breath* kay I’m good.2013-05-08_13-43-27_28That right there, is me at work . I was on my way to make something with One Wrap…did I want to take a whole bunch of shit with me and possibly drop everything between my pudgy fingers? Nope. This is how I deal with some thangs. One Wrap weave stuck on me FTMFW!

So that’s it for now people! I’ve had a little more time for thrifting recently so I’ll post up soon. I’ve taken another part time job so I haven’t had much time for shit. I now have the new Galaxy Tab 2 7″ so maybe I’ll be able to post faster without having to get on the comp and do all kindsa thangs that’ll just sidetrack me (Gaming, Steam, TeamSpeak, FB, you know, everything)

For all of you who haven’t unfollowed me (or just haven’t gave a damn) Thank you!

Happy blogging in le blogosphere!

Where the hell has Confection1nfection been? Part 2

ImageSo the ending of my birthmas fandom, this is just going to be a post related to whatever random things I’ve been up to.

This is a ring holder my sister inlaw got. At their house, they have an elephant next to their sink to put their rings when washing dishes. Each time I came over there I got super excited and even thought about jacking it a couple of times (yeah right from my own bro’s house? that’s just wrong! Well, we’ll say BORROWING lol). My sis inlaw heard me squeal over that shit multiple times and BAM I got one! 

ImageThese cute ass mugs have been in my mom’s Altima’s trunk for about a month or two. I got these for 75cents each while on a Salvo’s Wednesday trip. Shit it’s Wednesday right now and if I wasn’t sick as fuck and looking like I cried for years on end while my muscles were all achy breaky then I’d be thrifting atm -_- I’ve already missed a couple of days at work. I’ve been sleeping all damn week and I woke up earlier choking and now I can’t go back to sleep so hell, why not finish this big ass update on me eh? Anyway, back to these cute ass mugs! So the main reason why I got them is because of the ridged indents on the side for le fingers and of course, the beautiful jade-esque color. A lot of people I know get disgusted by knowing their drinking out of a glass or eating off of a plate that came from someone else’s possession…well shit. Did you sanitize a plate before eating at someone else’s house or go out to eat with your friends while your drunk ass is downing shots of patron that had slut lips nuzzled against the same rim that you’re licking whatever salt left over there is? I think not.  Main rule for thrifting: CLEAN YO SHIT. Image

About a weekish ago, my brother asked me to go apartment hunting with him and of course, I always say yes. Yes, I go for the ride. Who the hell wouldn’t? We ended up in Newport News, Va and came across this gas station/food mart. Again, ya’ll know I LOVE gas station food. The sign made me O_O foreal and I just had to try the gizzards out. ImageSee that crispy, greasy, fatty goodness? $5 for a large drink and those gizzards. Automatically came with Texas Pete (ooohweeee my fav) and yes, the sign told the truth, it is THE SHIT. Gross, gross cuticles…don’t mind them -_- Washing dishes with no gloves will do it.

Image

While in that part of Hampton Roads, near Buckroe Beach there was a “Dollar Bargain” store. As cheap as us siblings can be, we were like HEEYAL YEAH LEZGO! Doodadooo *walking walking* Yeah man, the inside was no normal dollar tree. They had an array of random things and remember, Random=Awesome. Those nail polishes were $1 each. Unlike some people I know IRL and online, I honestly don’t give a fuck if my polish is “upscale” or “high end” or “fancy as shit with long lasting power”. If you truly “LOVE” nail varnishes, you’d know you don’t just stick to ONE EXPENSIVE ASS KIND. Honest truth? I love trying all brands. It doesn’t have to have “long lasting” in the description because I change my nails up more than once a week for the most part.If I do plan on keeping the same stuff on, I’ll just pair it up with a good top coat. It’s common sense really. I ain’t gotta be FANCY all of the time.I mean, of course the way it comes out of the bottle and onto the brush and onto the nails is important but then again, it’s nothing a little bit of thinner can’t cure. I mean shit, it was a dollar, why complain? Most of the time, you seriously get what you pay for. However these “I.C.E” (Not Pure Ice) polishes weren’t half bad for a buck.

These are some things I did to try em out:ImageImage

Don’t mind my ugly ass toes please.

Image

As I’ve stated before, I LOVE alligator clips! This particular one happened to be from that shop from Buckroe and of course, it was a buck. I know it’s going to break in like a month but I’ll love it while it lasts lol.

Image

And just to throw this in, a few hours after I did that pastellish design uptop, I swapped to this messy tentacle design in which the next morning, I swapped colors and design once again lol…don’t judge me!

Image

Sooo apart from all those random things I’ve posted about my time apart from blogging, I’ve also started working at a Tactical Shop. During my lunch, I was eating that lovely portable children’s yogurt and I’m not stating the name for certain purposes buuut uh..yeah….It’s not always the best to give us humans the option to be “creative” because people like me will end up filling in the blanks with shit like that…JUST SAYING. 

Anyway so the ending of this post is, I’ve been sick as fuck for this past week. I had to type this particular post up in parts with hitting the save button multiple times because I kept falling asleep after I said I couldn’t fall back asleep. Well shit, I’m awake once again and can’t breath through mah face so here I am, finishing this up. Hopefully I’ll get time and more topics to dish out onto this but for now, ya’ll are just gonna have to deal with this! 

Thank you guys for your patience and support! ❤ Confection1nfection
