Nordstrom Haul

Remember this picture I posted recently? It is the picture found on the Nordstrom site for Christian Dior and I got my package yesterday! :)

I only ordered 2 products and I got 3 packs of goodies!! :)

Christian Dior Deluxe Travel Palette
Why did I buy this?

For $75, you get all this!!

A reg palette @ Sephora is like $56-$58 and you only get 5 E/S colors. With the Sephora F&F sale coming up next week, I checked if this was being sold there... This is 1 of 4 items being sold @Nordstrom but not Sephora.

Beautiful colors all in 1 palette! XD

The pretty lippy! The color is Organdi Pink 257. Sorry for horrible lighting. It has been raining and I have no natural lighting...

CD DiorSnow Protection UV in Translucent with SPF 50 - PA+++

Free CD Gift with $95 purchase.

Aww!! I did not want to unwrap it!!


Free samples!

This is the Free GWP.

Will I still haul @ Sephora next week? The question is now more of "do I need to" or "do I want to"? XD

I am not liking the weather.... It is raining and freezing.... I was lucky for it was not raining when I went to work and when I left...

Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser Review

So I have been using this for a few days now... I got it for less then $5 because it was on sale last week @ Shoprite.

From the back of the bottle:
The gentle foam cleans deep down to the pores to instantly dissolve dirt, oil and makeup, even the hidden traces you can't see-- to leave your skin perfectly clean and refreshed.
-Gently dissolves even waterproof makeup.
-Rinses clean without leaving behind any oily residue that can clog your pores.
-Gentle enough for use around the sensitive eye area.

Ingredients: Water, Sodium C-14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Glycerin, Disodium Lauroamphodiacetate, Polysorbate 10, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Heylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Citric Acid, Isocetheth-20, Fragrance, Methylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Xanthum GUM, Propylparaben, Ethylparaben, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract

My Thoughts:
Smells good. Had to use multiple pumps to feel clean (uses alot of product in 1 washing). It is really foamy! :) Does not remove eyeliner efficiently (I tried with MAC Fluidline, a MAC Pencil Liner, and some random Drugstore Brands)... Had to use eye makeup remover before or after to completely remove all traces... Beware because it burns if you get it into your eye! Rinses away leaving me feeling fresh and clean except eye area of course.

I'm not too crazy about this product. It does a good job removing my face makeup (foundation, blush, etc) but when it comes to the eye area, I think that it was horrible...

I rate it 3/5. I would not buy this again because at least Makeup Removing Wipes does not burn me and it removes eye makeup better although still not completely for me.

Instant Coffee + Viral Mac Giveaway by TheShadesOfU

Today's post is kind of random....

I do not need to have a cup of coffee everyday but when I do, I'm kinda picky about how mine is made. There are 2 Dunkin Donut and 2 McDonalds by my workplace. I do not like either's coffee but if I really need to, I would buy from DD because they have French Vanilla. One location is a bit farther from work so by the time I get to work, I feel as if my coffee is cold. However, they do make it better than the DD that is closer to work. I have to mention that I like my coffee light with cream and verrrrry sweet so I get irritated when it's not night or sweet especially when I need caffiene.

I love H-Mart! I can get so many Asian vegetables and other groceries without going all the way out to NY to Chinatown. They mainly sell Korean food and a tiny section of Chinese condiments so I do have to make a trip to NY once in a while. Some of the things I buy bulk are the instant coffee packets.

These 2 packets has the cream and sugar in it all ready. I only add 3/4 cup water and it is sweet enough. The top packet is plain coffee and the bottom you need hot water to dissolve the contents. I love them both because it's convenient (at least for me!) :)

I went grocery shopping yesterday and I stumbled upon:

@.@!!! I have not tried this powder form yet but I'm sure I will like it because I drink the liquid creamer with coffee at home. I was excited when I saw it. No more bad coffee because I will throw a few into my bag.

I also picked up this:
I got this because its a foaming cleanser + makeup remover. I have been kinda lazy at night with makeup removal and since its cold, I don't really like using the makeup removing wipes... I will try this out for a week and see how it goes....

Today is the last day to enter if you have not already for TheShadesOfU's Viral MAC Giveaway Contest! :)

That's all for today! Have a nice Friday!!

MAC Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask Review

I purchased a MAC Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask sometime last week from the Style Black Collection and I finally tried it today.

MAC description:

Formulated with Volcanic Ash and natural oils, this ash-black facial mask simultaneously deep-cleanses and treats the skin. When water is added, the mask heats up and the oils instantly lubricate the skin, leaving it feeling soft and clean. Helps keep skin moist, clean, soft, and evenly-textured. Limited edition.


Price: $19.50 at MAC

My Thoughts:
The first thing I have to say is that I have no idea what volcanic ash smells like. When I sniffed the product, the only scent I got was ash! Nothing fruity or floral. Just ash. LOL! You only smell it if you sniff so my advice is just don't sniff! :) So I followed the instructions to apply with moist hands to still moist skin (to activate the heat) and left it on for a bit more than the instructed 5 mins. After rinsing, I felt soooooo clean and and soft. My skin was very moisturized so my pores appeared smaller too! :)

Overall, I really like the product but it felt wierd to have black stuff all over my face. It was a good thing that I did not do it in front of my husband because I think I would have scared him like when I do my sheet masks. :)

Rating: 5/5

I would and would not rebuy this product because it is a limited edition product. The price will probably be jacked up like crazy on ebay by the time I finish and I like trying new products.

Hope this review is useful! Have a nice day! :)

It's Getting Cold!!!

I know it is only fall but it is freezing in my apartment... (I really need to work on my titles!)

Victoria Secret recently had a underwear sale but I missed it. I took advantage of the free shipping though. :) Got myself some leggings:

2 Pairs VS Leggings and 2 Pairs VS Pink Leggings. Also got a pair of Express Open Toe Tights.

I like very basic colored tights... I'm very boring but I would wear colorful socks!!

L- Betsey Johnson Over The Knee Socks R- Hello Kitty (2 Pairs) Knee Highs : Perfect for October! I thought this is very cute with the little skulls! :)

This is the other pair. So cute!! :)

One of my closest friend is Polish and she has gotten me addicted to Borscht this past year!

My friend said that I can use this to cook anything but I wasn't really interested until I saw this on a episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations where he went to a Polish Restaurant and they really used this in almost every dish!

I am craving Pierogies now! :)

I do not have skincare for me to show but I have skincare for my husband to show. :)

I am keeping this pouch for myself!! :)

I found this set for only $40 at my local TJMAXX. :) I picked it up because I have to try to replace my husband's current BVLGARI AQVA Emulsion that gives me a headache.
