Heavy Duty Concealer

I actually first saw this in Sofia's blog - ʚϊɞ Sofia's Brighter Days ʚϊɞ... she did a great post (click HERE to see that post) about this product... so great I had to get one for my self.... LOL...  go check out her awesome blog.... I know you'll love it....

I mainly bought it for the pencil coz I have been looking for a nude colored eye pencil to line my bottom waterline with... (as mentioned in this post where I featured Stila Kajal pencil in Topaz)... I've been liking the look of wide-awake eyes... so I think this concealer pencil & the Topaz pencil would be perfect for that.... I wanted to get the MAC Chromagraphic pencils from the MAC Pret-a-Papier collection a few months back but it was sold out right away.....

Rimmel London
1000 Kisses Stay on Lip Pencil

I've been wearing just nude lips lately.. my lips are very pigmented, I couldn't get rid of my natural lip color showing thru the outline... so I thought this would be perfect to pair with any of my nude colored lippies...

it's kinda hard to find this anymore, so when I saw it there I thought I'd grab it before I lose the chance to.... this is one of my classic faves!!

this would be perfect for liquid, cream or even powder foundations.... great for buffin in products to your skin...

from Big Lots

the tip was super thin... 
but then when I pressed on it with my fingers, it fluffed out.. I dunno if it would still help me get precised lines... I guess we shall see...

I got some other stuff from Big Lots, like Revlon tweezers, Tweezerman nippers, headbands, hair ties, magnified mirror & some other stuff that I didn't think you would be interested in.. so i just didn't include them...

anyhoo, that's all for my collective haul from October & some from November... hope you didn't mind the picture overkill.... LOL

  3. i don't mind the pictures. love seeing lots of em! I still haven't tried anything from the Hard Candy line. Walmart is to far from my house.

  4. @ MINAKICHU - thanks babe! I was soo curious about the brand too & wanted to try atleast one item, but didn't what to try.... until I saw the Glamoflauge from a fellow blogger... I haven't tried it just yet but as soon as I do, I'll post a look & maybe a review...
