Rose vs. Pink

We all love Dupes...sometimes you just can't afford the high-end makeup and you have to go with your local drugstore finds. I just recently picked up a lipgloss by Revlon (Pink Pursuit) and I think it can be a close dupe for Bare Minerals lipgloss (Rose). When I swatched it on my skin the  Pink Pursuit is more pink then the BM's Rose. I actually like the Revlon lipgloss better since it has no fragrance and the Bare Minerals one smells like really sweet.
What do you think?

Walgreen Goodies

I made a quick trip to Walgreens today while on my sucky 45 minute lunch break (yea who gets 45mins?!). 
This is like a mini ity bity haul...I didn't have too much time browse all the isles because I was on a mission.

- Revlon Lipgloss in Pink Pursuit
- Wet N Wild E/S in Nutty
- Nail Polish Remover

I seriously need to stop reading blogs because they will be the death of me! Hence, the reason why I picked up this lipgloss and eyeshadow. I already tried the lipgloss and it's a pretty pink shade (retails for $8.49), kind of matches my lips. Now as for the e/s, I haven't tried it but I heard that it's a great dupe for MAC's Satin Taupe and it has great pigmentation (on sale for $1.19). The Nail Polish remover was a must have because I had run out of it and this seemed like a good price. 

Sephora Friends & Family Sale

As you all know the Sephora Friends & Family sale is still going on (ends Nov 3). 
I decided to pick up two of my most coveted items today, since I have been holding off on it. 

CODE: FF2010

Items Purchased
MUFE Duo Mat Powder Foundation
Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Skinny Jeans

I keep hearing great things about the MUFE Duo mat powder every where, especially on YT. I am more of a powder kind of girl (Liquid Foundations are too messy for my liking), so hopefully this works better then my Mac Studio Fix. As for Skinny Jeans I know I'm going to like it since I already have RSVP, I just wanted to try a different color. Hopefully this order ships out fast!

No More Books

  After much research and thinking I finally decided to jump the bandwagon and get an E-Reader! I was getting annoyed at the fact that I don't have room for all these books I was accumulating. I would try using the using the library, but every time I was looking for a specific book it was always checked out. I kept going back and forth on whether to get a Nook or a Kindle, I must have read tons of reviews on various sites and asked my friends that have a e-reader how they like it. So, I finally decided on a.................................. KINDLE!!!! 

  This has been the best investment I have ever made! It's light and thin and can hold thousands of books and the battery last almost a whole month without charging. I have noticed that I actually read books faster now. Lately I have been hook on the "Pretty Little Liars" series (Total of 8 books) and I just breeze through each book in less then a week. If you are looking for a book to read, I suggest you try this series out. 

What are you favorite books?
