Collective Haul: Up to 11.27.12 + Black Friday stuffies

I want to first say that I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was wonderful and that everyone was able to shop safely as they hunted for some deals.

Sooooo I finally got a Job this pass month so I've been pretty bad with my money. I'm still in the process of figuring out how to deal with money without gunning it all. More about that in a later post.

Here is my Haul from the pass couple months along with Black Friday deals and a couple after BF stuff.

Sephora/Disney - Cinderella palette: I was torn between getting this or the Tarte Carried Away palette.  I just chose the pretty gimmick in the end because I've been super into fairy tales as of late and it does say that it's Vol. 1 so hopefully more to come to collect~ So far I like it, but it definitely comes with problems of it's own.

Target Beauty Bag: I'm so Sad this is the last one that they're giving out. D; I'm loving all of these little makeup bags that come with the samples.

Maybelline Color Tattoos LE - Test my Teal and Rich Mahogany: The textures of this are way better then the regular line in my opinion. I was quite sad that I couldn't find the Beige or Dark Gold Limited Edition colors. 

Revlon Lip Butter - Berry Smoothie and Fig Jam: These shades are great and I'm liking the texture of these. I've been reaching for these all the time. 

China Glaze - Deviantly Darling and Rare & Radiant: I was quite disappointed in these. The duochrome wasn't too apparent. But They are still pretty none the less.

Jordana blushes - Coral Sandy Beach and Redwood: These gems are amazing, super cheap, and pigmented. I finally got the chance to venture into a Kmart to get these. I've been wanting these for awhile now.

Sinful Colors - Cinderella, Winterberry, and Glass Pink: Cinderella looks gorgeous in the bottle, but I'm not a huge fan of the formula. Winterberry is a nice dusty purple with tiny white shimmer flecks. Glass pink is a great "clean" color.

Ultimate Poshe - Crease brush set: I wouldn't recommend these to be honest. They're a bit scratchy 

Black Friday haul

Ulta Mix and Match 5 for $5
~Ulta Nail polish - Celebutante: Cool Purple Creme.
~Vanilla Noel Hand Cream - Smells Nice and since I started working my hands have gone to pieces with dryness so a hand cream was definitely on the shopping list.
~Nail clipper: Nothing much to say here...
~Ulta Shiny Gloss Mini - Mischief: I'm liking the colors and happy it isn't sheer.
~Chi - Silk Infusion- I wanted to see what all the hype about this stuff was about. It smells nice.

Tarte Black Friday set: I thought this was a great deal for half the price you'd get for each plus they are full size products.

 Black Friday Deal

Threshold Fuzzy Blanket: This is so amazingly soft. I've used it twice so far and I felt like I was drifting on a cloud of baby bunnies. 

Snake Double ring - I've always loved snake rings and it was on sale for 99 cents for Black Friday.

Nyx Blush - Copper- I love the shimmery pigmented quality to this and it's not your traditional pinky blush color.

Nyx Eyeliner - White: I think I want to try giving the white waterline trick a go one more timee with a more pigmented white.

The Grand Purge #1

Side note: Sooo true story, I really do have/had a ton of posts planned for a LONG time now, but I just never get around to actually executing them... *sigh*

Welcome to my first Nail Polish Purge~
I've been gathering and gathering probably 150+ Polishes... And I have come to the conclusion: I really need to purge the ones that I don't even touch.
My parents think that actually I'm drinking the stuff at this point. <-- only half joking, of course...
Therefor I shall be purging all of these onto my friends. In hope these actually get some use.

Without further adieu here is the purge and my last words for each.

Rimmel -Steel Grey: First brought as a dupe for the famous Metro Chic, but alas the formula combined with the wide brush has driven me crazy for the last time.
Finger Paints - Lavender Highlight: Despite the strikingly similar appearance, I have indeed fallen for another's formula.
Finger Paints - Blank Canvas Cream: I had so many drab/formal events I was going to wear this to, but the color looked just a bit weird on me. It is suppose to be a dusty pink, but the separation is making it look orange.
Nina Ultra Pro - Leaf Me Alone: I adore the name. It is such a sheer color though. I may rethink purging this one because I've been recently seeing loads of people frankening polishes so I might add some glitters.
Sally Hansen - Chartreuse Chase: Interesting color, pastel green with a blue iridescent shimmers.
KleanColor - Dark Brown: I was planing to do nail art with this, but it's almost so dark it's black.
KleanColor - Sugar Coat: The formula is too thick and the glitters are too sparse for my taste.
New York Color(N.Y.C.) - Pink Pormenade Creme: I bought this along with my FIRST polishes for my mom but she never used it and I'm not a fan of pinks. Its just never been opened...
Sinful Colors - Fuji: One of my first polishes. It's super sheer, it almost looks like a shimmery lip gloss look to it.
Sinful Colors - Hottie: I'm just sorta sick of this glitter, despite its beauty.
Sinful Colors - Rise and Shine: It was my first victim on the hunt for the perfect teal. It lends more green so it just looks horrible and sickly on me.
Sinful Colors - All About Me: Not excited about this glitter at all...
(No Name): This is actually an amazing red creme. It's a one coater too, I've just found another just as good one with a cuter name/bottle...
Sally Girl - I.Q. - I didn't like the formula one bit.
Revlon - No Shrinking Violet: I don't have the patience for this to dry and the color is sorta blah for me.
Revlon - Iced Spice: This looks unbearable bad and weird on me.
Mood Struck - Purple to Light Pink: It does change, but it's not the most noticeable...
Hot Topic - (No Name): It's a black with hot pink glitter. Boring.
Wet n' Wild- Disturbia - Too plain for me.
Sally Hansen - Fractured Foil: I'm over the crackle look to be honest. the crackle on this aren't that amazing. And silver looks odd on me...
