Depotting my L'oreal Decrease

hey girlies so today I decided to depot my l'oreal decrease...I was surprised too see that alot of product was still left in there..why do these kind of primers have such sucky packaging....oh well!!

these are the materials I used..minus the measuring spooon [you will also need a knife to cut]

for a jar I used a l'oreal paris creme e/s I no longer used...I scooped out the shadow, washed it with dish soap and then sanitized it by cleaning it again with alcohol using some qtips

so I started by cutting back and forth

till I got a little past the middle of the container

then I separted the two halves[totally amazed by all the product that is still in there]

and used the wand on the package to start scooping out the product into it's new home

all done scooping out

I then used a toothpick to continue scooping out and kinda level off the top

ok so here is what it will look like in it's new home

TADA!!! now I have a new primer....

in a 3.5g jar

I finished it off by labeling it on the bottom...
I hope this helps..for more ideas on how to depot on video..check out some pretty awesome vids on youtube..thats where I got the idea, I think this method can also be used for the Urban Decay Primer potion
Take care

The 1st brush I got at walgreens on sale for about $3 but the original price is about $5, still a very awesome brush for all over blending

2nd we have the studio tools contour brush I got at Target for $2.50 I believe...excellent to pack on color to the crease and also for all over blending

3rd we have a brush that came in a 4 pc set for $9.99 from walgreens, awesome for blending and to apply highlight

Lastly is the e.l.f blending brush that I got off the e.l.f website for $1...very good to pack on color and for all over blending

*Ive used and washed these brushes for a good while and they don't bleed or shed

and here is a closer look..I hope this is useful...anything else you want to know...feel free to ask!!

Elf studio line blush & eyeshadow haul

so I have yet another that I waited on and got impatient with...I received my e.l.f package on tuesday..i waited for it for like a week and a day I believe...not too bad but bad for me because I have no patience...

so first off I got this for free for referring people..yay!! it looks all sweaty from it's long journey!!

I also got the new blush works awesomely I love it, I should have taken a pic of it sideways so you could see that it's kind of flat..I hope u girls understand me...

I ordered 3 e/s...
sand dollar to use as a highlight or lid color

amethyst because I love purples

and rasberry truffle because I love the name and also because the shade looked alot lighter on the website

I also ordered 3 blushes
a peachy one

a coraly one

and a mauvy one..I love mauve shades

and I got a back-up of the blush/bronze duo!!

and here are swatches of everything minus the lip balm..

I hope this was helpful to you ladies...have a good night, or day

MAC Haul & My broken blush haul :D

Hey my lovely blogger what do I have for u today??? a haul...yes a haul :D..this weekend we went to the mall because we were in the mood for some luciano' I stopped by mac and f21....
at f21 I only got these earrings because the store was super packed and I got annoyed so only bought this.

so my intention of going to mac was to get "up the amp" lippie and a lipglass that would compliment it so that is exactly what I got :D

I got Viva glam VI l/g...which I love!! I was looking for "magnetique" l/g from the rose romance collection but they didnt have it!! so then I was going to get cultured l/g and they were also out!!! so the mua recommended the viva glam VI SE and it so goes with next purchase will be the viva glam VI l/s!!

this lippie is so pigmented and a little bit goes a long way!! but I still love it!!

and I also picked picked up a sheertone blush in "coygirl"

and here are some swatches!!!

also I had a disaster with one of my was a little cracked and it seemed so easy to I tried fixing it with the whole alcohol method and it completely backfired on me so I had to go get another one,

look at how jacked up I made it...
While at walgreens I also got another blush in mellow wine...these wetnwild blushes are so awesome!!!

and a rimmel london lippie that came with a bonus lipliner...

and a pretty and cheap Incolor by Jordana squeeze~n~shine l/g

and here are some swatches of those :D
so this is my complete haul from this weekend(fri & sat) I just stayed home with the hunnie and enjoyed a nice quiet sunday!!
