Recent Target Haul
I've had a Caboodles case to hold my make-up and take it with me whenever I spent the night somewhere since I was a teenager. It definitely held up nicely but I was overdue for a new one, especially after the clasp broke off. I also needed A LOT more space to hold everything. I picked up a much larger Caboodles case called the Goddess for $29.99. It seems sturdy enough for everyday use though I don’t know how it would hold up for frequent traveling. The auto open trays do seem a little flimsy. I've read mixed reviews but I think with the right care, it will do just fine. Plus, it's not often that I spend the night anywhere. I really like that everything fits and so far I am happy with it!
My friend Britta Instagramed a photo of her newest EOS lip balm in Sweet Mint. I thought since I've never even tried their lip balms (crazy, I know!) I'd give it a shot. The scent is nice and not overpowering. I was also thrilled that it's organic! I had NO idea these were naturally made lip balms. They are also pareben and petrolatum free, packed with antioxidant-rich Vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil. The fact that they are only $2.99 makes me even more of a fan!
I really like coral colored lip products and feel the color compliments me well. So, I was kind of curious about orange lipstick. Yes, orange. I mean, I have purple so why not? I chose Electric Orange by Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids for $5.99. It's definitely different and more bold looking than coral but I find that layering a lighter shade (Maybelline's Color Whispers in Coral Ambition works well) over it helps to tone it down a bit. I'll post a photo of what it looks like on in a future outfit post :)
Eye cream has been scarce from my bed-time routine and since I love the Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Refreshing Toner I decided to try their Expert Sensitive Hydrating Eye Cream for $7.29. It contains gentle ingredients that are proven to moisturize, nourish and help reduce the appearance of fine lines. It feels really nice on and since only a little is needed I'm sure it will last a long time. I do want to find something that will help with dark circles but I couldn't find anything during that particular trip.
Hope you enjoyed my little haul! Be sure to enter my Real Techniques Giveaway in celebration of four years of blogging if you haven't yet!
