Review: Overall

Review: Overall is your one stop beauty site for the must have beauty products that will release the glamourous diva in you!

Last Month I won 5 mineral eye shodows in my choice of colours.  What I received was the 5 colours that I wanted to try a makeup brush and a cute little make up bag to store it all in. 

One of the shades that I really wanted to try was Summer Wheat so when I was getting ready to go out the other night I pulled out my new shade.  The application was just as easy as any other mineral makeup that I have used in the past, the best part was the coverage I got the colour I was looking for right away and used very little product so I truly beleive the statement that she makes on her site:

All of our MINERALS have a higher percentage of pure mineral colorants and NO FILLERS, so a small amount on your eye lids provides the same color depth as a heavy application of traditional pressed powder eye make up.  A 5G jar of Overall Beauty MINERALS will last about twice as long as the same amount of cake eyeshadow.

I had a hard time picking just 5 shades that I would want to try but I did in the end pick ones that I thought would best suit me.   If you have a hard time picking shades to try you can always order sample pots of the product to try for $1 a peice

$20 challenge Update 3

So I had $8.20 left to spend and spend it I did.
I went over and out this weekend when I went out to dinner with my friends.
My total was $40 (way over $8.20) so my $20 challenge ended not so great.  I think I may find another way to try this again.

As a heads up I expect to be hosting my first giveaway at the start of October so keep posted for that!

Goodies week of September 6-12

Would you believe that this is the first time in a very long time that I have got nothing in the mail and no wins!
Wow what a slow week!!

Everyday I would walk to the mailbox expecting something, anything just not bills. Sure enough the only thing I did get way a bill and a wedding invitation. Oh well better luck this week - fingers crossed.

On Tuesday i went for a walk and I ended up going past the bulk food store and I wanted a treat.
I spent .35 cents on Jube Jube's - I didn't want to spend too much of my money.

Today was a big spening day.  I spent a total of 11.45

I managed to get some good deals but considered it personal expenses as they are things we would not have bought.
