BEST DEAL SITES! Great for Christmas Shopping!

So before it gets crazy with black friday sales let me take a minute and introduce you into some sites that you NEED to be watching!

lets talk about some of my favorite "deal" websites!  You know the type they have flash sales where items or brands are on sale for a day or two and you can score amazingly incredible deals!  

First off is HAUTE LOOK

I love this site and I have ordered off them many times! Right now on Haute Look is LORAC! I love this makeup company! They have a bunch of there palettes for $10-15! Getting a professional quality for that price is an AMAZING deal!

If you haven't signed up for haute look you should sign up here! 
*some links are affiliate but not all

Next is Groop Deals!  

I just made my first order from them today and I can't wait for my stuff to arrive! Don't worry I will be posting all about it when it gets here!
They basically take deals from other websites and companies and then puts them all in one place! The thing I love about group deals is that I feel like the stuff they offer is very current and on trend.  I don't feel like its "left overs" or things they are trying to get rid of from a few years back.  The stuff is super cute and stuff I want to wear now! 

They carry everything from fashion, kids, home decor and more.  Pretty much everything, and pretty much right on trend. 

Aren't these gold prints just the cutest? 
um $6.99 yep. Thats IT! 

These tunics with the glitter pocket are just totally adorable! 

The next site you NEED to know about is Zuilly.

I'm pretty sure you don't know about it, but if you don't you need to just trust me and go sign up right now.  Zulily also offers daily deals and boy it can get addicting! But this is the perfect time of year to stalk there page and find the best deals for all the gifts you are going to be giving this season!  Go ahead sign up! I'll wait...

Ok now that you have already signed up let me show you what I love on their site right now.

First of all I'm obsessed with jackets... so getting them at a good deal is always a priority 

I mean can you ever go wrong with a classic trench?

This mini brush set is only $15! What?! Ive paid way more than that for one brush. Apparently that was before I found Zulily! 

Also for those expecting mothers its also a great place to get CHEAP Maternity clothes! Which from having two kids I know that is HARD to find! 

I'm not expecting currently but I thought this was really funny for those who are like "i'm totally done." 

For those of you who are sick and tired of people touching your belly this is for you!
Hope these were helpful for you!

Also if you want to EARN money while you SHOP check out EBATES!

Too Faced Haul!

So A week or so ago I made an order from Too Faced.  I had only tried a few products from Too Faced.  Although I had only swatched the chocolate bar palette I had known for a long time that I really really wanted to purchase it.  I took advantage of the friends and family sale and got some goodies I had my eye on.  

So here is the goodies that I grabbed!

I must say Too Faced does a beautiful job with their packaging! I loved that it came in a pink box!  The primed and pore less and the lipgloss were free gifts with purchase! Which I LOVE!

Next on to the star of the show, the chocolate bar palette.  I have wanted this palette almost a year! I have watched tutorials, swatched it in store so it felt great to finally be able to purchase this.  Sometimes its so nice to treat yourself! *Affiliate links are used, when purchasing through this link you support this blog and help me produce better content for you! 

I love that the packaging really does look like a candy bar.  But the real goodies are whats inside!

These shadows are a great mix of matte, satin, shimmer and straight up glittery, and I love every one of them! I swatches them all and seriously there is not a dud in the bunch.  I have won these a couple times and they have lasted all day long with great pigmentation! 

Here is the first two rows of swatches

and here is the last row of swatches.  The mattes are buttery and smooth which is the hardest to find.  I don't find this shadow to be overly powdery which is lovely.  I think for a neutrals lover this is the perfect palette, with just a touch of color. 

Next was the melted kisses set.  This is a limited edition set for Christmas.  I was so happy that I could get this kit and try out 4 of the colors!  and for $25?! Total steal!  So if you are wanting this kit I would suggest to act now!

Here is the swatches beautiful, pigmented, and long lasting.
The colors are melted fuchsia,  melted berry, melted peony, melted nude.   When applied this lipstick feels amazing.  Its light and almost feels like a matte lipstick. But when you put your lips together you can feel the slip and moisture you normally would not have from a matter lipstick.  I wore this lipstick all day to day and after I ate and drank the lipstick part did wear away but I was left with a beautiful red stain on my lips.  

Next I have a little pictorial tutorial for you on the look I did today. 

Here I have put the clear label over the palette so you can see all the color names.

Step 1: Put black forest truffle into your crease and slightly onto the lid.
Step 2: Put salted caramel just above the darker color as a transition color
Step 3: BLEND. Hold the brush at the end of the brush and lightly swipe the color to blend it.
Step 4: Apply champagne truffle to the lid to make it pop and also to the inner corners.
Step 5: Put milk chocolate to fill in brows and white chocolate on brow bone.
Step 6: Line top lash line with black liner and dark some black forest under bottom lash
Step 7: Curl lashes and add mascara.
Step 8: Finish with the Melted Berry Lipstick.

Hope you guys enjoy this tutorial if you already have the chocolate bar palette, if you haven't heres a link to check it out!  Also this would make a great gift for any makeup loving beauty!
