Prabal Gurung for Target

If there is something that I absolute love, is a good deal. Now, things are even better when you can get a really good quality piece for a fraction of the price. Therefore, thank you Target for bringing some pretty nice high end items at (usually) reasonable prices. Their newest collaboration is with Prabal Gurung and you all know that I had to check it out. I was immediately attracted to the flowery patterns and colorful options.

I have recently been on a hunt for a new pair of black heels and it so happened that Prabal’s line has a gorgeous pair. Of course, I picked them up at my nearest Target and I couldn’t be happier!

They are a strappy heel with a plastic string that ties at the top and a zipper on the back so it’s very easy to put on. Now, I can say that they feel comfortable when I tried them on but we all know that those feelings go away very quickly after wearing them for many hours.

This line has many more cute shoe options and incredible clothing items. Let’s just say that I had a very hard time leaving Target with just one Prabal item. I’m so excited to wear these babies in many outfit of the day/night so please get ready!

Hope you all enjoyed this post! Please let me know if you picked up any item from the Prabal Gurung line for Target.

Thoughts: Wet & Wild Lipsticks from Centerstage Fergie Line

Good morning everyone! I have two new products that I want to share my thoughts about. They are two shades from the new Centerstage Fergie for Wet & Wild.

First things first, the names are absolutely adorable: Old School Glam and Fuchsianista! I may have partially picked those two shades just because of the names.

WetnWild Fergie Lipsticks

On a serious note, the colors are AMAZING! I’ve only had these colors for a day and I’m already in love. I wore Fuchsianista to work today and got tons of compliments.

Initial thoughts:

– Like the sleek packaging

– Love the range colors they have available

– Not a big fan of the lipstick peeking out of the package but I can live with that.

Old School Glam:

– Beautiful redish pinkish shade with a hint of orange

– Completely matte with a hint of gloss

Fuchsianista:

– Deep pink shade with blue pearlescent undertone

– Not matte, has a hint of shimmer

They both have:

– Amazing pigmentation

– Go on very smooth

– Pretty good staying power (Only reapplied once)

– Great price! (Less than $4)

I am completely in love with these lipsticks! Wet and Wild has done it again and I can’t wait to get a few more shades! Definitely recommend you all try these lipsticks!

For some reason, I can’t find any of these items online. Maybe they are way too new. They should be available at your local drugstore but make sure you check for special displays.

Have you tried any of the new Centerstage items?

Review: Hawaiian Tropic Self Tanner Creme

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you are all having a great weekend 🙂

As many women out there, I am a big fan of having a nice golden tan without having to roast under the sun. I have tried numerous lotions, sprays and even a spray tan. Not going to lie, spray tans look great but the price tag and the smell keep me far away! Luckily, I found my match! It’s the Hawaiian Tropic Island Radiance Self Tanner Creme.

20130106-142517.jpg

This creme claims:

Flawless Tan

Luxurious 12 Hour Moisturization

Light, Fresh Fragrance

Retails anywhere from $6 (Walmart) to $11 (Ulta).

 

Why I like it:

– Just like it claims, the creme leaves a flawless tan.

– Great color. Not too orange or fake looking.

– Price! Sometimes they will be Buy one Get one 50% off at Ulta.

– Amount of product. Compared to a $30 spray tan that lasts 3 days.

What I don’t like:

– Not finding it at local drugstores (I’ve only found it at Ulta)

– The smell. It’s not as bad as a spray tan but it definitely has a strong smell.

Tips:
1. Exfoliate your skin before using
2. Let the product dry before putting in clothes or going to sleep
3. What I like to do is wear shorts and a tank top to apply and let dry right before going to sleep
4. If you want to apply for extra color before going out, use a VERY thin layer on the desired area. The thinner the layer the faster it will dry.
5. In order to maintain the color, use it every other day.
6. When the color starts to fade just make sure to exfoliate really good to avoid blotchiness.

All in all, I love this product and really wished they sold it in more stores. The color, price and size of products is great!

Hope you all enjoyed this! Please let me know if there is a another self tanner you suggest I use!

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Last nailpolish I got is from the new Fergie Collection for Wet and Wild. Since I’m a fan of W&W nailpolishes, I decided to pick up this shade of pink. It cost $3.49 at Walgreens but it’s not showing up on their website.

Quick tip: Check for displays to find these polishes because they were not in the W&W display.

June Favorites!

Happy July everyone! Another month has passed by and it’s getting so hot! Below are my June favorites. I didn’t have that many favorites this month but I really am enjoyed these items this month! Hope you are all ready for the 4th of July celebrations!

1. Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner

Lately I’ve been really trying to do minimal makeup and haven’t wanted to wear my gel liner so I have giver this liquid eyeliner a try. Although it is not my favorite, it has come in handy when I am in a hurry. The formula is not that great and you really have to apply it multiple times to get a good black. However, it has been good to me in the speediness section!

2. NYX Eucalyptus

This month I have put my red lipstick away and busted out my pinks. When I first saw Eucalyptus, I was scared by all the shimmer it had but now I love it! It’s very loud but it is great for the summer!

3. Neon Target Vneck

I’ve always heard so many good things about these V-Necks but I never bought them because I found them at forever 21 for a lot less. Now I know why these are better! Main reason is that when I wash this shirt, it maintains the shape and length. This is always a problem for me with Forever 21 t-shirts because it always feels like they either got short or wide.

4. Coach wristlet

I got this cute wristlet from a coworker as a gift and I’ve loved it lately to carry all my essentials. It’s great because I can just transfer it from bag to bag or just run out with it and not have to worry about carrying a huge bag.

What are some of your favorites this month?
