Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! I know this was supposed to be an ELF haul but due to shipping problems I have to wait for my stuff. Be glad I went to Target today when I thought I had an appointment this morning. I needed a few things and did pick up a few make up items while I was at it and a few things I wanted to try while another was something that a fave YouTuber tends to rave about!
The Essentials: First I needed more of my Clean and Clear Sensitive Skin Toner because I tend to go through it pretty quickly and now at a half a bottle or less since I use this item twice a day as directed, well there are times when I do it once a day. I love this stuff since a lot of companies do make sensitive skin items when it comes to skin care. Next is the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine for Frizzy Hair! I started using this when I had highlights at the beginning of the year and it kept my hair from going crispy like when they blow dry it and put hairspray in it, which was a big no-no and wished it didn’t happen due to my hair being a frizz ball. So glad I use the Marc Anthony Argon Oil Hairspray. Anyways, this Frizzy Hair oil was suggested by dorm staff in Daytona and it works wonders and it’s my third purchase of it! I use it when I wash my hair and on days where I use my dry shampoo and need to give it my hair treatment pick me up!
Make Up Items: Well, went down the make up area because I was looking to try newer items and one of them was a stop at ELF and since I wanted to try their face primer and glad to know that Target carries it. There were four different ones in this range which were the hydrating one, the porerless one, and two different versions for tone correcting. I went with poreless because I tend to have that run in with pores around my nose and I feel the gunk from my make up go into my nose ridges and have to use the strip time-to-time but they are stubborn like crazy! I am thinking to the radio commercial on ITunes for the Biore Charcoal Strips, which I am thinking of trying those next, talking about how gross they are and with me they are a pain! Hoping this doesn’t break me out since the Smashbox one did kind of do that and it may have been the batch I got in the Try It kit and ELF items for face tend to have salisilic acid, let’s see how this works!
Next, since it was the next section over, stopped by Maybelline to pick up the Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara! Since I have so many shadows, liners, and wanted to try out newer mascaras as a break, which I had a shadow purchase and that’s next, decided to check out another Colossal counterpart. I almost got the regular one since Vivi liked that one and I already like the Chaotic, but what caught my ears the most is the Cat Eyes one! Of course, mention “cat” you got my ears! It claims that the formula in this mascara spikes out lashes to give more of a cat eye look, especially at the corners. I have to try this out and see how it goes since it will be my first time trying it out and if it goes well like the Chaotic, which I did get my second tube of not too long ago, then I will wear it with my cat ears, collar, and now tail.
Next, I tried dropping by Rimmel to see if they had the East End Snob lip liner and they didn’t at the location I went to. I ended up going through it due to all the points breaking off and will have to remember that not to touch it too much and it will break everytime. I still love the liner and will probably look at Ulta on another girls’ day thing or at Walgreens or WalMart. I did pop by L’Oreal since I kept on hearing Kathleen Lights talking about the Telescopic mascara and was glad to find it. I like the packaging on this a lot because it is pretty much a telescope for what it says on the packaging! It also claims that it defines lashes to make them longer. I will give this a try since I do like the Miss Manga, the newer Miss Manga Rock Edition, and the Butterfly mascara, which I like to try out newer ones and get the ones I like over and over. Let’s see how this one works out and end up on re-purchase lists!
Finally, the Infoluble eye shadow in Eternal Black! I have been on a eye shadow no-buy or try to since I did get the Hikari Ready for Fall set from Ipsy and that contained three shadows and it’s hard not to get any more shadows since they are a staple to wear and new ones keep coming out and I do like the drugstore ones I own, especially the Infolluble Shadows by L’Oreal! The ones I have in case you’re wondering are Soltry Smokes, since I use that for my L cosplay to accent his sleeping eye look and it looks nice for everyday wear, Iced Latte, a golden nude, Amber Rush, which is a copper nude Bronzed Taupe, which is taupe with a bit of a bronzey edge, , Midnight Blue, which looks amazing with my hazel eyes or green when it’s the right transformation (my eyes tend to do that), and Golden Sage, which is a golden green color. The one I got this time is Eternal Black because I have been a curious kitty in trying out black shadows and not just as a smoky eye thing. I have to thank Vivi for it since she is kind of having me step outside of the box due to showing me the Primal shadows by NYX that she recently picked up and one of them was black. I decided why not go for broke and get Eternal Black since Jen from Head to Toe talked about this color in a haul a while back, she did get me into these shadows all thanks to that haul, and knew I would probably pick it up someday since it’s a nice, shimmery black shadow! I may have to wear this for Soul Switch because I am thinking of wearing my zombie ravaged shirt. Still, glad to step out of the box for a bit and this will go nice with my black liners on top of it since I wear my Smoky liner from Hot Topic with Soltry Smokes!
Well, that is it for this haul! I will have the ELF haul up once I have this shipping situation fixed. I did call them a few minutes ago and they will be re-shipping my items, which I am thinking due to the “Ship for Free” special it caused a major mix up. I will tell the entire story once I get the entire order in and hoping that I get all six items I purchased originally. Stay tuned for that! Once that is done, will try and do the whole too young for make up post and then start my new segment, “Doesn’t Sound the Same.”
