Way Back Wednesday #6

Guess what day it is!! 

Yes, you guessed it! Not just hump day…. WAY BACK WEDNESDAY!!

Welcome back to the 6th episode, today features a polish collection circa 2014. I actually did not hunt these girls down, I just happened to spot them on a random stroll down the beauty aisle at Kmart. The display caught my attention, I googled them but weren’t able to find out much just that they are textured finish.

I liked these because the colors weren’t the common colors that brands were releasing like the reds, oranges, pinks. I remember these being semi sheer on the first two coats, but the third coat covered it opaque.

Here’s Rimmel’s 2014 textured finish polish collection “Sweetie Crush”.

Were you able to nail these?

Stay tuned for next week’s episode 7 of Way Back Wednesday, thanks for reading!

Sally Hansen X Crayola Collab swatches 

So I’m finally making some time to swatch the newly released @sally_hansen X @crayola collab, I’m not too late!!  These are available for purchase at Walgreens & Kmart (where I got mine). They retail for $4.99. 

There’s nothing unique about the colors but the formula is a 2-coater; one coater if you put a lot on the brush.

There are 12 shades in this collection, I purchased only 4 (somebody better be proud of me)!!


Give nostalgia a round of applause!! 


Wonder Woman makeup spotted at Walgreens 

Hey y’all remember me?! lol I know I’ve been ghost around here but I haven’t let you go (nor will I soon). 

Truth be told I haven’t been buying makeup like that, I’ve been really good believe it or not. So with that being said, I rewarded my good behavior of not buying makeup with makeup lol!

If you remember, a few months back there was another Woman Woman makeup release sold at Walgreens. I actually didn’t pick any of it up UNTIL they went on clearance. With the upcoming release of the Wonder Woman movie, these products are showing up in Walgreens for all of us Wonder Woman fans. I raise my hand in attest to growing up watching the show and wanting those bracelets that block bullets didn’t you? Linda Carter was one of those women who made being tough look good besides Foxy Brown!!

Products in this collection consists of:

  • Lip Tints
  • Eyeshadow Palettes (2)
  • Lip gloss (3)
  • Lipsticks (3)
  • WW designed makeup pouches

Here are the items I purchased

Paradise Eye-Land 


L to R: Athena’s Kiss, Mighty Aphrodite, Wonder Woman.


These are not matte, they feel smooth and creamy–very pigmented also.

Top: Amazonian Red

Middle: Modern Age

Bottom: Heroine

Should you spot these in your Walgreens what items will you purchase?

New Wild n Wild Beauty Products at Walgreens 

Hey again!!

So this just happened…. I unexpectedly came across the new Wet n Wild beauty products in my Walgreens. I say unexpectedly because this Walgreens is close to my job & it used to be so out of date when it came to getting the latest in makeup (but they stepped up their beauty aisle for real)!! These products were said to release for 2107 but who’s complaining huh, not me & don’t you!!

Unfortunately there weren’t any prices on the display but I can tell you the prices for the items I purchased.




Higlighters are $4.99


The diversity for the shades is ridiculous, but the coupon on the display says that all 20 shades will be on the website (HERE).


Illuminating highlighter is $5.99
Soft Matte Lip creams are $4.99

I wonder if nail polishes will debut as a part of the collection? As you know the Megalast Catsuit Matte lipsticks are available on the website as we speak (HERE).

So now that you’ve seen the menu, what are you ordering lol.

Thanks for reading!!

Wet n Wild Megalast Catsuit swatches 

Y’all I was so amped when these lippies started popping up at Walgreens, I couldn’t wait to get my lips on these (pause) lol. I was hooked when their fall lipsticks released, I hoped these were a match in formula. They are a match in formula indeed…. it applies smooth, no smell, dries quickly & most importantly MATTE!!

I was a little upset at myself because I raced to get these when they released online, while a surprise to me I stopped in the Walgreens by my job and they just put them out on the shelf. I’ve learned that now I need to hurry up and wait lol.

I haven’t worn them yet but I’d like to give you some swatches, in case you haven’t picked these up yet for $4.99.


 924B-Rebel Rose

925B-Give Me Mocha

926B-Berry Recognize

930B-Missy & Fierce

932B-Goth Topic

931B-Video Vixen

Here’s a comparison of the 2 of the fall lippies (How Fleek is Your Love & Don’t Be a Plum Plum) and the new shades.

Don’t let the lighting fool you, Goth Topic is a nice brown-vamp color in person.

Which ones do you see yourself buying?

Wet N Wild Beauty LE Pop Back to School collection haul

Y’all know I’m not into lipgloss, but you do know that I’m into lashes and nail polish right?!

Recently Wet N Wild beauty released this back to school limited edition collection consisting of 2 sets of lashes, 4 polishes and 6 lipglosses.

I of course got all the polishes, but I also got 2 lip glosses because I want to see if I can matte them somehow (wish me luck). I only purchased one set of the lashes, I like how these flare out.

Polish-$1.99

Lipgloss-$2.99


I got them especially to collect them cause I love any product with pop art design on them!!


“Violet Furs” (purple) & “Very Well Red” (Red)

New Maybelline The Loaded Bold Lipsticks


Hey y’all!! 

So I picked these new lippies up one day last week… Haven’t gotten a chance to rock any of them yet, but I wanted you all to see my new babies. These are available at Target for now as far as I know. They retail for $5.59 and come in 20 shades, however the Target display only has 18 shades. There’s a black and white shade that are missing (don’t see those purchases in my future anyway).



Check out the ones I picked up…



These are definitely bold for any season!!
Which one (if not all) do you see yourself wearing?
