So...I finally caved on the Priceline Beauty Club. I paid $20 in total because I had a $5 voucher so I thought why not? Some of the perks include:

Bigger Payback

If you spend $225 in one quarter, you're entitled to a 5% reward on your purchases which means you'll get $11.25 in the mail. But if you spend under $225 the normal 3% applies. 

Bag full of goodies

Which includes a black tote with pink lining, a small black makeup bag with pink lining, a compact mirror, a Models Prefer Ultra Lipgloss pencil in kiss and make up and a Models Prefer matte black kohl pencil. So basically you're paying $25 and receiving these awesome goodies, valued at $62.

Review: Lush 'No drought" Dry Shampoo

First of all I LOVE how this smells. It smells like lemon candy. OMG soooooo good. But that's all I really like about this. There are a few problems with No Drought. And although I love the smell it's not enough to make me want to buy it EVER again. 

First of all it's white white. I have thick dark brown/black hair and it leaves a grey cast in my hair...not very attractive. TIP: Do not apply the dry shampoo to your normal part in your hair. Instead section off your hair, if you have thick hair like mine section it off a couple of times, and apply it to the roots.

Comparison: Essense Stay All Day vs Maybelline Colour Tattoo

Today I'm reviewing/comparing the Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow in 01 Coppy Right (whoa that's a long name) and the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 25 Bad to the Bronze. 

Basic Information
Essence Price: $5.50 Weight: 5.5 grams/0.19 oz Availability: Target and Priceline
Maybelline Price: $11.95 Weight: 4 grams/0.14 oz Availability: Anywhere Maybelline is sold

Colour Both are BEAU-TI-FUL bronze shades with a metallic finish. Coppy Right has slightly more pink undertones but on the eyes they appear very much the same.
