New Curling Iron and Cheapie Palette

Blogger has been so slow...like dial up slow so I've avoided it the past few days.

I just wore a bronze shadow by itself since I really liked the color. Unfortunately I didn't get a good photo since I was in a rush to go shopping...I was running late.

I see a lot of awesome hauls from Ross/Marshalls/TJ Maxx so I had to stop when I saw a Ross and Marshalls right next to each other. Marshalls had a lot of Lancome stuff but it looked like everything had been opened and touched...yuck. I found this 1 3/4 inch curling iron at Ross, and I also bought this Profusion 98 palette. The colors are pretty tame compared to the Coastal Scents 88 palette, but that's why I bought it.

Here's a comparison of the 1 3/4 iron and my old 1 1/2.

Just testing the eyeshadows out...my hair is kinda damp and matted down and I don't have anything on my lips :{

Most of them are pretty pigmented and apply smoothly. A couple were on the dry and chalky side, but for $7 it's not a big deal.

  2. I have the Bed Head & they are so worth it! I have the 1 1/2 & smaller one. The curls last. My sis-in-law wants me to get her one. They're $40 @target.
