December/January Mini Haul

I am by no means a Fashion & Beauty Blogger but I'm a YouTube fanatic and I love love love hauls!...so I decided to do a HAUL!

I don't know about anyone else but for me January was a very very very stressful month financially due to a host of Medical visits and  no INSURANCE (don't even ask!)...so my haul was very very MINI...lol

Anyhow my first haul was on  December 31 at my favourite little make up store in Portmore, Blush Boutique (http://www.facebook.com/blushbtique?fref=ts). I bought three items  (1) L'oreal Revitalift wet cleansing towelettes ($1000) to remove my make-up; (2) Klean Color Rainbow Splendor in Desert Spring ($300  from the sales basket!) & (3) Nano Mix 9 Glitter Palette (also $300  from the sales basket!). Since my purchases, I have been using them every chance I get!


My next mini haul took place in January. My dear friend Bathsheba and I decided to just walk the malls on Constant Spring Road. My daily make-up routine for work was a bit to much, so after watching numerous YouTube beauty vloggers share their daily make-up routines, I decided to try a bb cream. After some research, I opted to try the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. I bought it in the Bargain Mall, Clock Tower plaza for $1600. So far it has been really good. The fact that it is light, it gives me enough coverage for my work day. I am obsessed with achieving an even skin tone (something I've lacked for so long as a result of my eczema) and this actually helped me to achieve the look.

After we left Bargain Mall, we ended up at Woolworth where I bought 2 Jordana Lipsticks. I'm obsessed with "Nicki Minaj" Pink lips(thanks to Suni: sunipink.wordpress.com)! So I decided to buy 2 variations of Pink. Strawberry Shortcake (the lighter of the two) &  Rosette (I wear it every chance I get!).

I also had a Pharmacy/Wholesale Haul . I was in need of lip balm and that was the main reason for my trip to the Pharmacy, however, in true Shana fashion that wasn't the only thing I bought lol. I also ended up buying a bottle of Witch Hazel ($277.00 + tax). I decided to try it as a toner after reading Debbie's Items Favoured & Flawed post (http://youareexotic.blogspot.com/2012/08/items-favoured-flawed.html). I have no regrets so far & additional research helped me to learn that it is also good for treating eczema and other skin ailments. I also bought an Optimum care hair treatment. I have watched and read many reviews on this line and I'm thinking of trying a few more products. Oh...I did get a Blistex Medicated Lip Balm & my lips have improved dramatically!

It was a super mini haul but I think I got some good stuff! Can't wait to blog about the cute stuff I got from my mom's winter vacay in the Big Apple!

Thanks alot for reading my blog!
