Hey guys! I truly have a shopping addiction. I have decided to put myself on a project pan after I looked at how much cash I had left...My next post will be about my own personal rules for project pan which starts right..Now.
So I went to Rue 21, and I picked up a perfume. Then I got a coupon, and went again today and picked up two more and a wallet. The perfumes are only $10 and really great quality. Here they are!
The first one is Rue 21 Black. It smells absolutely amazing. Since, like most people, I am terrible at describing scents I looked it up. Fragrantica says, " Rue21 Twentyone Black is a fragrance for the young and rebellious girls, launched in summer 2010. It opens with fresh notes of orange, dewy green tones and pineapple. The heart features lily of the valley and orange blossom, layered with creamy coconut, woody notes, musk and amber."
I mainly get the coconut and some orange and pineapple. To me, it smells really fruity and fresh. The kind of perfume I would wear everyday. Although it is young, it isn't "immature."
The next one is Tarea. Let me just start with the bottle. It is super cute. I wouldn't mind having it on my vanity...if I didn't store my perfumes away from sunlight in a drawer of course. Fragrantica says: "The composition of floral – fruity aromas opens with notes of pomegranate, apple and pear. The heart is floral thanks to jasmine and peony, laid on the warm base of amber and blonde woods."
My unsophisticated nose just senses the floral sweet sent. I do love it though.
The last perfume I picked up is an actual Eau De Parfum, where as the other didn't mention whether they were Eau De Toilette or whatever else, but this one is stronger. Although I am no fan of the bottle, others might really enjoy it. Runway 21 is a limited edition perfume so I recommend checking it out. I couldn't find any notes for it, but the lady said it was strawberries and something else. It's a little deeper than the other scents. So imagine a musky strawberry...kinda.
The last thing I picked up at Rue 21 was this amazing wallet. It was on sale, and then on the 50% off rack. It was only $3 and super cute! I love it and is going to replace my old Claire's wallet that is falling apart.
Then I went to Wal-Mart and I was going to pick up the CG Aqua Smoothers compact but they only had the tan/dark shades so I went ahead and picked up the Dream Smooth Mousse foundation. It was really hard to tell what shade I was. Somebody opened one of the lightest foundations, and I swatched it (shhh) and it looked a lot darker in the packaging then it did swatched so I picked up Classic Ivory. I'm super pale, so I hope it works! It was $8.
So I have been using the Maybelline One By One Mascara, and I don't really like it. I love the brush, but the formula doesn't do much for my very small and sparse lashes. I saw the Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes, and the brush looked similar so I picked it up. It was a little pricy for drugstore mascaras, at $7 but it was the same as the One by One. I won't open it yet, until my One by One is unusable, but I wanted it for when that does happen.
