Review: Sally Girl Eyeshadow Singles

Blue Marine & Olive

A review!!  It’s been a while!

During my trip we made a stop at the local Sally’s Beauty Supply store.  My momma was so sweet to pick these up for me!  (One is never too old to be spoiled by one’s mama!) 🙂

  Thanks, Mom! 

Blue Marine is a lovely blue with a faint hint of gold sheen.  The sheen is hard to pick up once the shadow has been applied to the eye, so I would consider this more of a matte.

Olive is a beautiful olive green that also has a golden sheen.  The sheen on this one is a little more noticeable, even after application.

Pros:

  • cruelty free!
  • fun colors
  • blends well
  • CHEAP!!  (a whole big $.99 each!)
  • ability to connect together to build your own palette!

Cons:

  • a little powdery, easy to over-blend
  • needs to be worn with a primer to show colors well

Conclusion:

These little babies are really cute and fun to try for the price.  The pigmentation could be better, but with primer they look great.  They blend easily, sometimes a little too easily.  I found it was easy to over-blend these into oblivion and then have to apply more…..

Applied alone (L) and with primer (R)

The fact that these can be connected together to form a custom palette is PURE GENIUS!!!  I wish more companies would create packaging with that ability!

Sliding together

Eyeshadows connect to make a custom palette!

These are the first Sally Girl products I have tried.  I wish the pigmentation was better, but they are still fun to play around with for the price.

Have you tried any products from Sally Girl?  What are your favorites?

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

I’m still here, but still very busy!

I just wanted to take a moment to post a quick update!  My mom’s move went well and she is getting settled.  It was hard to be away from my husband and kids for so long.  My husband did a great job keeping things going and we had some really fantastic friends who jumped in to help as well!  🙂

Things are still a little hectic around here as we transition into the school year, so my blogging time is still pretty limited but I’m working on a new blogging schedule that will work better for now.

Thank you so much for your patience!  If there are any specific posts you would like to see featured here, please let me know!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Time to Take a Break

Sometimes a girl just needs a break!

I’ve got a pretty busy couple of weeks ahead of me as we get back into school and help my mom move.  I just wanted to let you know that I won’t be able to post much.

I promise I’ll be back soon!  And I’ll still be on Twitter and Facebook, so make sure you connect with me there!  And if you haven’t yet, what are you waiting for??!!  It’s not hard, just go over to the side bar and click the little buttons.  🙂  I love sharing with you and hearing from everyone!!

I’ve got lots of ideas for upcoming posts so stay tuned!!  🙂

But for now I will leave you with one of my favorite songs of the moment:

Je’kob:  Love Is All

Enjoy!  🙂

Beauty Bargain Alert: Glass Nail files at Big Lots

This week we made a stop at Big Lots.  I enjoy the adventure of shopping there because you just never know what you might find!

I have wanted to get my hands on a glass nail file after I heard that they are better for your nails.  How are they better?  They create a nice smooth edge to the nail without the pulling or snagging that weakens the nail.  My nails are pretty hard, but once they get a bit passed my finger, they tend to rip and snag very easily and it drives me nuts!

This package was labeled “Trendy Tools” and came with two glass nail files in different colors.  Both have a protective plastic cover.

I found these in the makeup/cosmetics section.  And the best part??

The price!

Only $2.80 for TWO!!  Cant’ beat that!!

I’ve already used these on my nails and I have to say that I can definitely tell a difference.  My nails feel much smoother along the edge.  I don’t think I will ever be a long nail kinda gal, but I’m really hoping that this will help keep my nails from ripping and snagging as they grow.

Each Big Lots location seems to have slightly different things in stock, so I’m not sure if you will find these in your area.  But if you’re like me and enjoy the thrill of the hunt, it’s worth a stop to look.  🙂

Happy shopping!

Sparkle Nails!!

This combo has me mesmerized!  I just love it!

This is one coat of Rimmel Lasting Finish Polish in Black Satin (430) layered with one coat of Wet N Wild Born into Privilege from their Be Jeweled collection.

And just in case you missed that, let’s review:  ONE COAT!!!  Yes, that glitter polish is really all that and a bag of chips!

These Be Jeweled Wet N Wild polishes came out this past spring and are just beautiful!  I featured The Crown is Mine from this same collection in this post.  They don’t seem to be easy to find anymore, though so check your drugstores or eBay if you are looking for them.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
