Essentials Plus Mini-haul :)

Labels: , , , ,

Bargain Finds

If any of you girls live in the NY/NJ area, you may be familiar with the Essentials Plus beauty stores. Well, I went to one today to check the pricing on their NYX eyeshadows (because, aside from CherryCulture.com, the lowest price in stores I've seen is $2.99) and I was floored when I discovered they had NYX Ultra Pearl Manias on display and in stock! I have never seen these in real live stores before!

I bought some off CherryCulture when I last ordered from them (Walnut, Ocean Blue, Turquoise, Yellow Gold, and Charcoal) for $0.99 each, but I had wished that I could see them in real life before buying. Essentials Plus had a whole bunch in stock, so after careful consideration, I bought Lilac, Penny, Lime and Fanta (click the image to enlarge). Can't wait to try these out! They were $1.99 each, which is not bad considering I got to see them in front of me and take them home right away, instead of waiting for shipping and relying on swatches for colors. I'm building up quite a collection, ehy? ;)

I also bought an L.A. Girl Mega Pearl Eyeshadow, just to test out the brand and see if I like it enough to go back for more. The color is called Sangria and is like a bright violet with silver shimmer. So the grand total for today's haul was under $13 for 5 shadows! Not bad if I do say so myself.

Anyway, if anyone is looking to see these live, in person, definitely check out your local Essentials!

that purple shadow looks lovely o_O


I never ordered from Cherry Culture and always wanted too! They always have such funky brands with awesome, bold colors ;) Very Muse like ;)

Nice haul of goodies!

I wish I can keep my spending budget under $13 for 5 eyeshadows! hehehe!

Hugs love!

I really liked Essential's display of the L.A. Girl shadows... they had testers, and from first swipe the color appeared highly pigmented but since it was just on my finger I didn't really get to test staying power yet. Maybe I'll wear it tomorrow and post some pics!

Definitely order from Cherry Culture! The prices are super low and you get a free lip gloss (nothing really to write home about... but it's free!) with every purchase, and free shipping over $40.

Thanks for commenting! :)

Thanks Mischo Beauty! I seriously am in love with Dr. Bronner's now. I swear it's working wonders. I am just crossing my fingers to see if it keeps doin' what it's doin', lol. I think my skin looks maybe 60% better than it did before I used it... and I doubt it's all in my head.

Anyway, thanks for reading!
