So I did a little shopping at my local beauty supply store I picked up some NYX stuff.

3 NYX Palettes - top is Perpetual; the right is SHANGRi-LA and on the left is Tropical/Yellow/ Lime Green

Two polishes - the yellow is Roasted and the Green is Lime. Roasted is really sheer and pretty on. I did a mani and a pedi with Roasted and how about the the mani chipped the next day. I ended up peeling the whole thing off. Since it was so sheer I did 3 maybe 4 coats. Not sure if that was the problem since I tend to do 3 coats with most of my polishes. The green is opaque, not sure about it's lasting power since I haven't worn it yet.

Lip gloss in African Queen and liner in Fuschia. The gloss is a really pretty pinky purple.

Now for some swatches: row 1 is Tropical/Yellow/Lime Green; row 2 is Perpetual; row 3 is SHANGRi-LA; the top pink is the liner in Fuschia and below that is the African Queen Gloss

I love a deal! I don't pay full price unless I have to. I've found that TJ Maxx is a great place for makeup and other beauty items. Their prices are usually half or sometimes more than half the retail price. Last time I was there they had some Too Faced stuff and Anastasia eyebrow palettes. Of course there wasn't a palette for me since my brows are black so I left empty handed. This trip was good, I picked up some Lancome makeup. The shadows normally retail for $16.50 and the lipstick is $22. TJ Maxx price 7.99 each. You can't beat that!

Left to right: Color Design Shadow in Rose Quartz Sheen ; Color Design Lip stick in Pink Heels Sheen ; Color Design Shadow in Luxe Grey Matte

Swatches from top to bottom: Pink Heels; Luxe Grey Matte; Rose Quartz Sheen

Another thing I love is the clearence section! Those little red/yellow/orange stickers make me so very happy! I picked up some Gap Body body srubs and and both oil for $2 each. The scent is very light and floral perfect for the summer.

I also picked up a organic coffee bean caffeine eye cream by 100% Pure for $7.99. I'll probably do a review after using it for a while.

After all the Ped Egg talk I picked one up. Usually I use those scrub bars you see at the Asian nail places and a callus scraper to get off any dead skin off my feet. After using the Ped Egg I have to say that it is the business!! My feet are really smooth and soft. I am a believer! You can get it at CVS, Rite Aid and probably other drugstores.

Quite a haul. I've been meaning to try some NYX eye shadows. This post is certainly motivation, and I see the colors I want too.

I look forward to seeing you working them!
