SALE ALERT!: beautyblender

Now we all know Beauty Blenders run us about $20 for just ONE, but this sale is one that should NOT be passed up. http://shop.beautyblender.net/ is having a 24% off sale in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and 24% of each sale is being donated to support Breast Cancer. So not only are you getting a discount, but you're helping raise awareness to a great cause. Personally I think the most bang for you buck is the Fantastic Four; you get 2 regular sized beauty blenders, one mini, and a solid cleaner for $29 and there's FREE SHIPPING in the US! Um, yes please! So hurry before it ends, I heard today is the only day for the sale.

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday my beautiful people! I'm just going to jump right into today's post, so here you go!

Side note: I do not own any of these photos (they were all obtained through Pinterest)

This look is fabulous! From the contour to the berry lip and the eyeliner. Just FAB! I've been so into the berry colors this Fall and this is just the perfect color lippie. I wish I knew what it was :(


This skirt caught my eye. The pattern is intriguing and the folds off of the top making it somewhat of a peplum skirt just makes it that much cuter! I need this in my closet! NOW.



I've always been weary on pleather leggings in fear it would look like Sandy from Grease (LOL) but this look is so cute and paired well with a comfortable flowy top! I love the black and nude together, too. (Sorry for the grainy/blurry picture)


This dress is cute, but that's not the reason this is in my favorites. I'm more concerned about that gorgeous gold belt! I've been looking everywhere for one and the only one I can find is half gold in the front and the back is black. I want an all around gold belt similar to this one.



SLAYYYYYY. That is literally all I can say about Kim Kardashian West. Dear LAWDDDD why must you be so perf?! Her makeup? Flawless. Outfit? Flawless. Need I say more? She makes this look classy even with no shirt underneath. 



I believe this product has been discontinued from MAC but they need to bring it back! I haven't had a chance to get my hands on it but this is soo pretty. Wouldn't you agree? Perfect highlighter I'd say. 


Ever since I switched to the other side, I've been in loveeee with stiletto/almond shape nails. Definitely my fav and this natural look is adorbs! Never going back to square nails!



Over and out babes!

Facebook

Good morning everyone! It's finally Friday Eve, one more day YAY! Anyway, some of you may know that I don't have any personal social media. The only social media I have is for my beloved blog. I have a Twitter and an Instagram solely for my blog and today I finally was able to update my blog's Facebook! So if you'd be so kind to add me as a friend I would appreciate it.
Find me HERE! 

Bare with me, though, because I'm still getting used to working social media again (LOL) I feel so old. 

Thank you for all of your support!

SALE ! Gerard Cosmetics

Hi lovelies quick update for you! I have a promo code for Gerard Cosmetics. They have a 5 pack of lipstick that is originally $95 but the promo code brings it down to just $45 USD (pre-tax)! And it's free shipping! Eeeeek! I just purchased this set myself today. Email me if interested :) Blogobsessedxo@gmail.com

Top Ten Tuesday Update On A Wednesday

Hi babes! Me again :) So here is my Top Ten Tuesday post from yesterday about the things I was going to purchase from Sephora today; however, I have swapped some things out for different items and wanted to share what I actually purchased with my 20% off coupon. 

I ended up not getting Tarte Bon Voyage, Too Faced La Belle Carousel, Peter Thomas Roth 21st Birthday (because the 24K Gold had too many similar items), and Makeup Forever HD Complexion Starter Kit.

In place, I got NARS Hardwire Lipstick in Deadly Catch (I'm stalking Adriatic to become available), Kat Von D BauHau5 (since Lolita was out of stock), and Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer.


What are your thoughts on these products dolls?

Wishlist Wednesday

Wishlist Wednesday is here! That means half of the work week is OVER! YAY! Today is also my pay day, something else to celebrate about :). But anyway, lets get to my wishlist for this week. This is going to be a mix of everything fashion and beauty related so bare with me!

I have a pair of boots like these, but their grey and white with an aztec pattern on it and I'm in LOVE with them, I got them from Wet Seal a few years ago and can't find them anywhere, so these are the closest things I've been able to find.


Such a simple and cute necklace from Happiness Boutique! XOXO :)


Apologies for the blurry picture, but these items are all from Charlotte Russe. A high/low twist skirt that I'm obsessed wither, some comfortable "jogging" pants with a scroll pattern, a beautifully embroidered top, and a cute romper! Ugh I need these in my life.


Most of my viewers may not know my favorite animals, but they are owls and elephants (or eFalants as I call them lol) But this shirt is just so cute because not only is it an owl, but they are two dream catchers combined to make it. What a creative idea! I'm also in love with dream catchers, I think they're so pretty. So this is the perfect shirt.


NARS Albatross is on my wishlist because Kim Kardashian West is said to use this to get her glow and we all know how amazeballs her makeup and fashion style is. UGH - to die for. (I've also heard Sephora has a dupe for this in Star Dust (only $14 compared to NARS' $30)




I've heard lots of hype about this product - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Pallete. It is said to highlight flawlessly giving a hint of shimmer.

This item is ALWAYS out of stock online when I try to purchase it - Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. Why are you so hard to find ?! It's said to be a dusty rose color, but many people have been saying the formula has been changed to more of a brown color which sort of turns me off. I'm looking forward to a dusty rose, so if it is in fact changed to a brown color, I'll be passing. Any thoughts babes?


Hope you beauties enjoyed!

Top Ten Tuesday

It's ONLY Tuesday. As much as I hate to say that, at least it's TOP TEN TUESDAY! Today is going to be a top ten from products I'm purchasing from Sephora with my 20% off coupon code (unfortunately the codes cannot be used more than once or else I'd share with you darlings!) 

1. Tarte Bon Voyage
I've heard so many good things about this set and who could beat all of this for $59? The colors in the palette are mostly neutral which are my go-to's but there are other, darker colors in there if you're more adventurous!










2. Glamglow Gift Sexy
Okay, let's put this into perspective. ONE full size (1.2 oz) container runs you to about $69 at the cashier plus tax. This set contains 1 full size and two 0.05 oz containers for the same price! And if you feel like that isn't saving much, let me just say the 0.05 oz are about $20 each, so you're saving about $40 bucks, getting 3 items instead of 1 and you get to try 3 of their masks. Hallelujah!



3. Too Faced La Belle Carousel
I think the packaging on this is SUPER cute and I can't get enough of it. It comes with a mini mascara, has eye shadows, bronzer, and blush! What more could you ask for?


4. Peter Thomas Roth 21st Birthday Kit
I've heard PTR is great with their skin care products and I've been really into skin care lately so I figured this would be a good set to try. I haven't heard anything about these specific products, but I guess I'll find out!


5. Makeup Forever HD Complexion Starter Kit
I've been really wanting to try some MUFE products so here's the perfect little kit to get started :)


6. Boscia Little Black Book
More skin care stuff... LOL. But I've seen the black Boscia mask used on a lot of people so I figured, why not?


7. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Black
Because my travel size one dried out (waahhhh) My absolute FAV eyeliner!


8. NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette
When I first saw this palette my eyes we automatically drawn to it. I don't have anything NARS so this will be my first product from them and I'm so excited it'll be this!



9. Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow
Oh. My. Heavens! Can we say gorgeous? This is another product line I don't have anything from and I've heard so much hype about this beauty so I'm excited to say this will be my first Bobbi Brown product. 


10. Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Magic Kit
Because it's 24K gold, why else?! 


BONUS: I reached VIB!



Hope you lovelies enjoyed. What did YOU get with your 20% off?!

MAC Heirloom Holiday Collection

MAC's Heirloom Holiday Collection is now available online as of yesterday at MAC and now Macy's! I believe it will be available on October 23rd in stores. Unfortunately I'll be passing on this gorgeous collection but for those of you that are interested, grab it while it lasts! The packaging is to die for and the colors are perfect! Sparkly white, black, and red with a cameo *gasps* I'm so upset I have to give this collection up :( 

Some of my favorites from this collection include the pigments, the individual lipsticks, and the lipstick sets.

The pigments come in a set of 5 they are $35 for the set, the individual lipsticks are $17.50 each and the lip bags range from 39.50-59.50. Personally I think it's a good price for the amount of things you are receiving. For the lip bags you get a lipstick, lip gloss, and lip liner with a gorgeous bag! There's also a lip and eye bag that comes with a lipstick, lip gloss, and a 4 shadow compact. 

UGH Someone love me enough to get me this entire collection ! (WAAHHHHHH *Snooki voice*)

Trend Alert!

Many of you may not know, but I love animals! They're so cute and cuddly I could literally take them all home! But I'm not trying to have a zoo in my home. So unfortunately, I do not have any animals of my own, so I'll continue visiting the zoos and aquariums for now lol. 

I'm sure you're all wondering what this has to do with fashion and trends. Well, a huge controversy is animal cruelty in both the fashion industry and the makeup world. I am completely against animal cruelty, so please note I will only buy faux fur and I try to be cautious of cruelty free makeup brands as well. 

Lately I've been seeing fur vests and I'm sooooo in love with this look. I know this trend has been around for quite a bit, but I've been seeing it more and more lately. The person that really inspired me was of course, Miss Kim Kardashian West. I know these photos are older, but I saw them on Pinterest and immediately started looking for a vest myself. 


(I do not own any of these photos)


The bottom picture of her in the maroon-ish brown dress is the one that really caught my eye. DEAR LAWD! All three photos are gorgeous but this fur vest is the style I was particularly interested in. Now looking at it again, the first picture's vest is adorable to! I looked quite a few places to find the style I was looking for, but I finally found it at H&M! It was sold out for quite some time but I luckily checked back yesterday and they had it stocked in my size and now it's already sold out! Thankfully I gabbed it in time. This vest runs for $39.95 USD and if you subscribe to their emails, you get 20% off of your first order. They also have a black one like this and one that kind of looks like raccoon fur.

This vest paired with either a dress, or a long sleeve shirt and jeans is perfect for the fall and winter weather.

Hope you beauties can get your hands on this when it comes back in stock!

Save the animals and go faux!

MAC Cinderella Update


So my darlings, with the help of Trend Mood, I now know why MARCH is on the bottom of the Cinderella image above. This is not a holiday collection (Thank goodness, my bank couldn't handle it! Haha) but this will be released in March of 2015! What am I most excited about? ALL of it! Just because it's Disney. And to be honest, Cinderella is one of my favorites. I'm hoping the packaging is as amazing as I'm imagining - light blue and crystals. Once more info, pictures, and swatches are released, I'll post right away! :)

Cinderelly, Cinderelly

Here's a quick post for you lovelies. I have a minute to myself with no distractions so I figured I'd share the news. There's talk of a new MAC collection (source: TrendMood1 on Instagram) and this is one I am beyond excited for! If the title didn't give it away, it's Disney's Cinderella! If you know anything about me, you'll know I'm absolutely obsessed with Disney movies (and if you don't know, now you know!) 

I haven't seen any sneak peaks YET, but when I do, I'll be sure to share. Also when I get a release date I'll let you MAC fiends know! I might even skip out on the Heirloom and grab this instead! 


(Not entirely sure why it says March, but once I find out you'll be the first to know)

Thanks for viewing darlings!

Makeup Monday: Me Now Lip Gloss

Lately I've been noticing the new trend for lips are the liquid to matte glosses. Kat Von D has her line, Lime Crime has their Velveteens, and one I recently stumbled upon through MakeupSocial is Me Now. You can find these on eBay or Amazon for a little over a dollar a piece! Yes, I said a dollar, as in singular, as in ONE dollar. But for the price, are they good quality? That is the question...

I've actually seen people rave over these on MakeupSocial so I'm betting they're worth a try and for a dollar, who wouldn't at least try them? The only downside to purchasing these inexpensive lippies is the wait time. It can take up to a month to recieve! So if you're someone that's patient then go for it! I purchased three of them myself. I got #22, #28, and  #33. I'm still waiting on them, though, so unfortunately I don't have a review for you beauties just yet. But in the mean time, if you're curious, go onto eBay and type in "lip gloss" and it should be one of the first 10 that pop up.







Have any of you tried these before? If so, what are your thoughts?!


Monday Madness!: Last Call For Holiday Sales

Most of you are probably scrambling around last minute, or scrolling through a website on your phone to place your last orders before the Columbus Day holiday ends. As I mentioned in my previous post. Charlotte Russe, Aldo, and K-Mart were having sales. Well, it didn't end there. Wet Seal, Macy's, H&M, and many other great places were also having their sales for the holiday weekend. But hurry, because most of these sales end today! Most of the stores are having a percentage off of your order, or they're having a BOGO sale, and some even have free shipping with no minimum! Don't we wish that was always the case? So here's the run down in case you're interested:

Charlotte Russe

Aldo

Wet Seal

Macy's

H&M

Old Navy

Hope this helped in case you darlings were doing some early Christmas shopping, or just treating yourself to something nice! Happy shopping :)
