I got tempted..(a Beauty Haul)


I tried so hard to be on a “No Buy” mode for the past two months and I was really proud that I’m able to stop myself from purchasing any makeup related stuff.

I admit, there were moments that I was about to give up and just say “what the heck” but no, I kept my promise and I did it. I originally planned of just doing a “Low-Buy” but instead, I went on a “No Buy” for the month of January and February.

When March 1st came, I couldn’t help but check out the usual makeup section at Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack and more.. and there!!! I did some damage.

Now, let me show you what I’ve collected for the past week!

Nordstrom Rack

Totally Cute

  • Too Faced Totally Cute Eye Shadow Collection – I really wanted to purchase this in the past but I wasn’t willing to pay $36.00. So when I saw this on display, I immediately took one and I only paid $14.97. Such a great deal!
  • Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick – I love the melted lipsticks a lot and as soon as I saw them on the rack, without a doubt I had to grab them. I got the shades Melted Melon and Melted Candy. This retails for $21.00 a piece while I only paid $8.97 each. Who can beat that? ๐Ÿ™‚

TooFacedMelted Lipstick

  • Lipstick Queen – I’ve been wanting to try this lipstick but I wasn’t feeling the $24.00 price tag. I haven’t heard a lot talking about this either so it’s difficult for me to spend that amount. Fortunately, Nordstrom Rack had them for $9.97 so I got two. They’re in the shades Fire Red Sinner and Saint Bright Rose. I haven’t tried them yet so I’m keeping my fingers crossed hoping they’re good.


Lipstick Queen



  • Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Lip Cooler – I’ve heard about this brand for quite sometime now but for whatever reason, it just didn’t appeal to me. So when I saw them at Marshalls for $2.99 each I had to pick them up. I got them in Strawberry and Raspberry flavors. I believe this product is now discontinued but if I’m not mistaken, this was originally sold for $19.00 at Sephora.

  • butter LONDON CHEEKY Cream Blush – Another discontinued item that I’m so glad I’m able to snag a couple before it’s gone. I have them in the shades Tiddly and Naughty Biscuit for only $2.99 each. I saw them being sold on different online sites starting from $11.99 on eBay up to $25.50 on LookFantastic.com.

Burlington Coat Factory


  • Cargo Cosmetics “Around the World Eye Shadow Palette” – I’ve never tried any products from Cargo Cosmetics and lucky enough, Burlington Coat Factory had a few of this palette left. This palette retails for $34.00 while I only paid $11.99. This palette is beautiful, super smooth and highly pigmented so I guess I snagged a gem right here!



  • L.A Girl Glazed Lip Paint – Another first from L.A Girl cosmetics. I’ve always wanted to try their concealer and lip products but as always, I kept putting the order on hold since it has to be purchased online. But when I saw this staring at me on display, I knew I had to take them home. This L.A Girl Glazed Lip Paint cost $5.00 each while I paid $5.99 for this entire set. The shades are Pin-Up and Blushing. Two lip colors that I love to wear at anytime of the day.


Christmas Tree Shop


  • essence Cosmetics – Blush Up! Powder Blush caught my attention from afar. This reminded me of the Wet N’ Wild Ombre Blushes (review here) that I used to love. They come is two shades, Heat Wave and Pinky Flow. I got the shade Pinky-Flow (20) which is a gorgeous pink but is very subtle when applied on the skin. This retails for $3.99 each.
  • essence Satin Touch Blush – I LOVE blushes from essence cosmetics and I get so excited when I see something that I know I will enjoy. I got the shade Satin Coral (10) and this blush is super affordable. I only paid $2.99 and I wish they had more shade options.
  • essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick – This lipstick is super smooth and feels very comfortable on the lips. I couldn’t resist myself but I had to give it a try and I really liked it. This retails for $3.99 each and comes in eight shades, I got the shade Natural Kiss (01) which is pretty and nice for an everyday wear.


  • Wet N’ Wild MegaGlo Dual-Ended Contour Stick – I have been eyeing on this contour stick for awhile now and I finally gave in and had to buy one. I’ve read amazing reviews on this contour stick and I cannot wait to put this to the test. I purchased this for $4.99 and in the shade Light/Medium.
  • Wet N’ Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick – Conceal and Contour – Another concealer to try from the MegaGlo line. This is in the shade Follow Your Bisque (807) and this cost $3.99. I am really hoping that this concealer won’t disappoint me.
  • Wet N’ Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick – Highlight – Who doesn’t love a great and affordable highlighter? I purchased this with high hopes so I cannot wait to open this up and try them on. This is available in every drugstores here in the U.S with a price tag of $3.99 each. This comes in two shades and I got the shade When the Nude Strikes (800).

To sum it up…


I cannot wait to put these products to the test, I know most of these brands are already on top of my list but you never know. Makeup is definitely something that we all have a love and hate relationship with and I myself can attest to that. One last thing, I didn’t purchase these products all at once. These were accumulated beginning March 1 until this post went up.

Have you guys tried any of the products mentioned above?

      Too Faced, Wet N Wild and essence are amazing! There are more cool products available but I had to remind myself to only purchase those that I know I’ll use. โ˜บ๐Ÿค”

      I was intrigued by the metal tip on the Korres lip products too. They feel so cooling on the lips though and really hydrating too. And yes! The Cargo palette is really nice and super wearable color options. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  1. Oh my gosh Rosalyn! This is pure happiness! I totally understand unleashing the need to SHOP. Hehe March 1st must have been a great day for you!
    The Too Faced Totally Cute Eye Shadow Collection is so CUTE! And you snagged it for a great price!
    I’ve heard mixed things about Lipstick Queen but I would definitely give it a whirl at those prices! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Oh my gosh – those Butter London blushes! Why did they list the “compare at” prices as only $5?!
    I’ve seen that Cargo Palette at Marshalls here but not sure about the quality – glad to hear it’s good. See that lower right side eye shadow pan that says “Toronto”? That’s ME! And you’re right above! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I was sad coz time just few by so fast but was excited too coz I can shop again.. hehe so much temptations for the past months and luckily they left some for me to buy.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ And yes, I said the same thing “compare at 5???” When you can’t even buy a nail polish from BL for $5.. lol and The TF palette is soo cute that I don’t want to even touch them.. hehe The LQ lippies have mixed reviews that’s why I didnt want to pay full price but glad I found one half of it’s original price, I didn’t let go for sure.


  2. You got some great deals! I wouldn’t have been able to pass up those Lipstick Queens either, I have 4 of them and they’re some of my favorites. Sorely tempted to go scout Nordstrom Rack but I’m at Lipstick Max Capacity LOL!

      did I just hear “Lipstick MAX?” wwoohh.. there’s no such thing as MAX in our world..HAHAHA but yeah.. you better start checking Nordstrom Rack out for an awesome deal. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. MyStyleInsideOut

      oh no… sorry.. but it feels good to not buy anything though. You get to use your makeup that you haven’t used for awhile. Don’t worry, most products now aren’t limited edition so for sure you can still grab some when your No-Buy is up. ๐Ÿ™‚
