ShopaHAULic: Sally Beauty Supply Haul

Hi dollsJ Guess what? It’s haul time!! I went to Sally beauty supply store downtown for the first time. So I want to share with you all what I got.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque $7.59

This mask is supposed to absorb excess oil, minimize appearance of pores etc. I heard so many good things about it from beauty guru such as Bubzbeauty, and this is the main thing I want from Sally’s. I already tried it once and I love it. I will try it out more so I can do an in depth review.

Palladio herbal tinted lip balm in Cotton Candy $5.59

Again, this is a very highly rated product that can only be found in Sally and I just can’t pass on this adorable product. My friend got it in Berry and I bought Cotton Candy. It’s a very sheer lipbalm that gives beautiful shine to your lips. However, it’s totally different as the colour shown on the packaging. But that’s OK. I still like itJ

Comare Massage Grip 14-Row Round Brush $8.69

I’ve always wanted a boar bristle brush and when I saw this, I had to get it. The price here in Sally is relatively lower than most other stores and I can’t wait to try this out!

Wet Look Shower Comb $2.19

This is just a basic wide tooth comb that I always wanted to get but never get a chance. Nothing fancy but of course, Pink always makes me happy J

China Glaze Nail Polish in Peachy Keen and For Audrey 2 for $10

When I saw China Glaze polishes on sale I was so excited. Those are my first China Glaze nail polishes. Cute colours, great for spring!

I had a great time shopping at Sally. Have you guys ever shopped at Sally? What’s your favorite product there?

OPI Mod About You

Hi dolls J Just wanna make a quick post for today. I had a friend came over a while back and I painted her nail this baby pink colour. Since it’s spring now, pastels are extremely in. Of course, you can never go wrong with PINK. This is Mod About You by OPI. I know this is quite a popular shade but I still wanna do a short review on this polish. Overall, I adore this shade! I only applied one coat in this picture and it’s completely opaque. While some people complain that this polish is quite streaky, I think with a bit of practice, it’s not that hard to work with. Plus, this colour is so beautiful and just screams SPRING. Even though OPIs are quite expensive, I still think this polish worth every penny. This is the perfect baby pink I’ve come across. Hope this helped and have a wonderful day <3

p.s. Excuse the messiness, I applied it extremely fast and was too lazy to clean it off. And my friend is cool enough to accept it. LOL

Celebrity look for less: Taylor Momsen

Hi dolls, ever wonder who’s that rock chic? Yep, you guessed it, Cindy Lou Who from How the Grinch Stole Christmas is all grown up now. While some people criticize Taylor Momsen’s drastic change of style and personality, I am obsessed with her style head over toe. Let alone her band The Pretty Reckless, their songs are just absolutely amazing! Well, today I want to show you how everyone can easily pull of her Gothic clothes with more affordable alternatives. Here, I put together three outfits and hopefully, everyone who wants to achieve her style can get something out of this.
Boots---Forever 21

For those casual rockers, I am wearing this bottom down shirts with unique ruffle details as well as an attached vest. Some of you may think this looks too preppy, but trust me, Taylor does wear preppy clothes occasionally (well, dahh, isn’t she in GG) Just remember, keep your outfits in the black and white colour range and add some edgy accessory, you should be ready to hit the street.
Of course, no one can wear short sleeves in this chilly weather, unless you live in some warm areas which I am totally jealous of you. Here, I add on a black coat with this patterned scarf, along with the leather gloves and knee high boots, we are all taylored up.

Last but not least, this look is for those clubbers out there, Leather jacket, body con skirt and cross necklace, oh, I am so obsessed with this look.
