Product Rave/Mini Review Sonia Kashuk Powder Blushes!!

Hey ladies so I'm here with a quick tiny review/rave about a product that I've been loving sooo much lately.
I hardly see these blushes being mentioned in the beauty world...but I love them and I think we should all show them some love...they are the Sonia Kashuk Powder blushes.

What I love about these blushes are:
  • Great pigmentation!!
  • They blend really nicely
  • Not powdery at all
  • Sleek white packaging with magnetic closing
  • Found easily at your local Target
  • Very affordable, $8-9 [better than $18 for a mac blush]
I have nothing bad to say about these blushes :D

[Flamingo, Melon, Lilly]

I hope you all decide to try at least one of these blushes...they really are a great find, I'm hoping to try the cream blushes next.

Thanks for reading :D

A mini haul...Mac & Maybelline

Hello ladies!!!
 So today I went to do a little shopping, I stopped by walgreens to see what was on sale since I hadn't  been to walgreens in a while I saw they had some clearance items [look for an orange tag under items], so I picked up two Maybelline mineral power blushes which I had been wanting to get for the longest time I just never wanted to pay the $7-9 on them so since they were 50%, I got them for $4.75...GREAT DEAL!!

I also stopped by MAC and was determined to get Hipness blush...well as soon as I walked into the store to look at it and swatch it, the item said "out of stock", I was so bummed but I got an I asked one of the mua if they maybe knew if the mac counter at Macy's had he called and only the Dillard's counter had one I ran to Dillard's counter and picked up Hipness blush and Lazy Day l/s...he totally came through...the people at that MAC store are super helpful!!

so here is what i got
Top Row-Maybelline blushes in "Fresh Plum" & "Gentle Pink"
Bottom Row- MAC Hipness Blush & MAC Lazy Day ls/

Thanks for Reading!!
