Shopping Haul: 4th of July Weekend 2017

Friday, July 14, 2017
The 4th of July is another big shopping day for me. This year I had to work, so I did my shopping over the weekend. I was fortunate enough to be able to go to my favorite stores. I ended up buying a lot more than I anticipated that I would! I enjoy watching shopping haul videos because I get to discover items that I may like to purchase, which is why I make these posts for you. If you love shopping hauls and seeing what other people have purchased, then you are in the right place. Just keep reading!

Ross Dress for Less

Perfect Image New York Pink Glitter Evening Clutch

The first store in my shopping haul was, of course, Ross. This clutch was calling my name! I knew I would be disappointed if I left without it. It was only $12 and is perfect for special occasions. The glitter does not easily fall off, but it can if you are reckless with the bag.

Steve Madden Blush Bmicro Satchel

The color of this crossbody is very unique. It is blush, yet very close to being nude. It was decently priced for Steve Madden and feels like it is of good quality.

French Pastry Hope is My Anchor Tee

I had no idea that this shirt had writing on the back until after I got home! I selected it because it is a comfy, nautical, oversized shirt. I did end up liking the writing.

You and I Mauve Choker Neck Chain Shirt

You are about to see a theme here with choker neck/cutout shirts, but they are totally trendy for Summer 2017. I love blush and mauvy colors. I thought I could dress this shirt up and maybe even make it business appropriate.

Ambiance Red Choker Neck Shirt

This is another choker neck shirt that I thought I could easily dress up or down. I also do not have much red in my life, besides red plaid.

Moonchild Choker Neck Tee

This is my favorite shirt from the trip! I adore shirts that have so much attitude, and the color is perfect.

Bozzolo Mauve Lace Bralette

I have been collecting bralettes lately in a variety of colors, and this was a new color for my collection. Bralettes are great because are they comfy and are perfect for shirts that are going to show part of your bra no matter what you do. If you are going to show your bra, then you need to do it in a tasteful way. These are definitely a wardrobe essential. This one feels like good quality.


Cherry Chree All Eyes on Me Complete Eye Color Collection

I have been wanting to try more Cherry Chree products. The first time I ever saw them was at Walmart around Christmas. Almost all of the sets sold out before they even went on sale. The only sets I was able to get was the Plasquick Surgery countour sets. I was extremely impressed by them. This set on the other hand was a total waste of $5. I bought it just to try the eyeshadows. The pigmentation is not the best and the lids keep falling off of the pans. The shade I was most attracted to was the reddish-brown eyeshadow, and that one has the worst pigmentation of the set! I kept trying and trying, but the swatch never got darker. Also, I do not think the colors in this set go together well. Save your money on this one.

Physicians Formula 

These are my first ever Physicians Formula products. The set was $7, which was a great deal. So far I am disappointed with this purchase as well. The Eclipse powder swatch hardly showed up on my arm. At least the City Glow powder showed up better! I do not want to fully judge these until I apply them to my face with a brush. If they do not work then I figure they are meant for people that are paler than me. My next critique is the golden buildings in the City Glow powder. The gold is a glittery overspray and it ALL came off when I did the swatch. Finally, the packaging is very bulky for these powders. That is not cool for people like me who have a large makeup collection- we need to save every inch of space!

Walmart

No Boundaries

Anchor Printed Pocket Tee

I am still obsessed with nautical stuff, making this shirt an easy choice.

Plum Crochet Tank

I was trying to get some different colors into my wardrobe during this shopping trip, so this shirt and the next few were good choices. I like the tie-front look and crochet details. It also almost has a sharkbite cut.

Lace Inset Top

This top is cut very pretty, much like a babydoll top. It will look nice with antique gold jewelry.

Red Plaid Strappy Tank

I cannot get enough of red plaid and grungy outfits. This shirt is an awesome pick and light for summer.

Tie Dye Smocked Romper

For some reason I am attracted to this periwinkle shade of blue, especially when it involves tie dye. I thought this romper was just too cute.

Salon Perfect S3 Eyelashes

These were $1 so I figured what the heck. I did wear them one time, and I must say, the band on these is very short. They only go across half of my eye and I was having the issue of what would be the inner corner lifting up. So far I am not a fan of these. If I want short eyelash bands, I go for what I call "halfsies," or the ones that mainly adhere to the outer part of your eye.

Maybelline 

Master Fairy Highlight

This is the first time I saw this in a store, so I grabbed it! It swatched very well, dare I say better than the wet n wild version of this highlighter. I cannot wait to try it on the face.

The City Mini Palette in Chill Brunch Neutrals

I have been very skeptical about purchasing the City Mini palettes because Maybelline is notoriously known for poorly pigmented eyeshadows. I got a few of the Nudes palettes at Christmastime, and the swatches and pigmentation definitely left something to be desired. I can foresee myself giving them away in the future. I heard some mostly good stuff about these City Mini palettes, so I decided to take the risk on the one that caught my eye the most. I love burgundy and mauve eyeshadows a lot. This swatched surprisingly better than past Maybelline eyeshadows. I will have to see how they perform in actual application.

Five Below

Mermaid Cozy Plush Blanket

You are going to notice a mermaid theme from Five Below, but I am obsessed with mermaid stuff. This blanket was such a steal at $5 because that is less than the Snuggy version. It is a good length, and the color combination is so pleasing to my eyes.

Mermaid Sequin Pillow

I finally took the dive and bought one of these pillows. I have been looking for one that does not clash with my decor. So far I am enjoying this decorative pillow and the shine that it casts across my ceiling when the sun hits it.

So Fancy! Iridescent Nail Stickers

These nail stickers are so trendy right now and the shapes are perfect for a variety of nail art. Just $2? Heck yeah.

Fruit Straws

These are right up my alley. I have a pineapple and lemon obsession, but the others are cute too. The fruits are rubber so that they can be washed and reused along with the straws.

I'm Actually a Mermaid necklace set

I really bought these sets for the necklaces. How cute are they?!

Mermaids Have More Fun tee

This is a basic black t-shirt, but all I have to say is, why not?

Five pack ribbon chokers

I thought this simple set of chokers would easily fit into my wardrobe.

Five pack seashell chokers

I really bought this set for the choker with the seashell, but the others are fine as well.

City Color

Be Matte Blush in Dragonfruit

I have a few City Color products in my collection which I find impressive, so I am open to trying more. These blushes are alright. I need to wear them a few more times before I make a solid judgement about them. The swatches felt somewhat chalky, but the pigmentation is there. They are totally matte, which I like. I picked Dragonfruit because I thought it was a good everyday color, and Blackberry because I like mauve blushes.

Desert Treasures Bronzer in Oasis

This bronzer reminds me of the bronzer in this City Color trio that I have. It is highly pigmented and shimmery, which makes it somewhat hard to blend. I recommend using a light hand with City Color bronzers. Other than that I like the shade and how it looks on my face.

Sinful Colors Kylie Jenner

I collect nail polish and I am a huge Sinful Colors fan, so I had to go for the deal and grab these shades that I did not already have.

Five Below nail polish in Don't Worry, Be Happy

I am all about adding unique nail polishes to my collection, and this one fits the bill. It is so fun and goofy.

Dollar Tree

April Bath & Shower 2 pack Microfiber Makeup Cloths

The last store I went to in my shopping haul was Dollar Tree, so get ready for a mini Dollar Tree haul! Yay, they finally came out with some new designs of these cloths! These are machine washable makeup remover cloths. I use these instead of disposable cloths to save money. They do not remove 100% of my makeup, but I remove my makeup right before showering, so that takes care of the problem. I am a big fan of these. You can also pickup a matching headband to keep your hair back while you shower or apply makeup.

Jot Hook-Shaped Push Pins

I have been looking for these for a while. I do not have a use for push pins at the moment, but the hooks are ingenious and the colors are pretty.

Sure Scents Scented Oil Refills in Hawaiian, Lavender, and Apple Cinnamon

I recently got one of those scent oil devices, and I needed some scent oils to go with it. These sound like scents I will enjoy.

Ombre Glass Sayings Candles

I have been on the hunt for these for some time! I plan on using them as decoration when I get a place of my own. Be careful with these- the glass is thick and they have some weight to them. I do not think they smell the best. They have an odd floral smell.

Scunci

I found all of the Scunci hair products! It is rare that I buy stuff for my hair, but I am all about grabbing name brand stuff at the dollar store. So far quite a few of these headbands creep up my head until they are about to pop off. I do not like that. I guess I will have to use a bobby pin with them.

I can attest to these being very stretchy.

Ouchless hair ties

I need to take a moment to rave about the Ouchless hair ties since I have not yet gotten to on the blog. These are the best hair ties that I have ever used in my life and I cannot recommend these enough! I have been using the same Ouchless hair tie in my hair almost daily for a year, and it has only stretched a small amount! It is still super tight and actually pulls my hair a little bit! I can even do this quick bun, where I do not pull my hair through all the way when I am making the last loop of a pony tail, and it holds my hair up! If you see these for $1, buy them all, you will not be sorry.

Flexible headbands

I like these because they do not slip around and I can use the teeth to hold my hair back.

This concludes my shopping haul. When I got home I realized that this might be the biggest shopping haul I have done yet. I must say that I got some amazing deals, which resulted being able to get many products for a small price tag. Will you be going out to find any of these products? Which are your favorites? Until next time, continue to let your true beauty shine.
