Black Friday FOTD and Purchase

When I reviewed Hourglass Cosmetics Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Siren, my friend Anna asked to see it in a FOTD so I remembered to use it today. I didn't actually wear makeup yesterday, I was a little too consumed with food to care about putting any makeup on. I had a yummy traditional style Thanksgiving Lunch and a definitely less traditional dinner (can you say squab?) with plenty of Pumpkin Pie.

Siren FOTD

I've been using some Tweezerman products I received on my brows and I have to say that I think they are looking so dang good. The tweezers I got have been fab on the faint brow hairs that I usually have to have threaded out, review on everything I got coming up soon!

Products Used:


Cover FX Powder FX in M40
Milani Baked Blush in Terra Sole


Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte
Louder from the bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 The Playlist Palette in the crease
Sugarpill Goldilux in the center on the lid
Revlon Grow Luscious Waterproof Mascara
Highlighter side from the Tweezerman Eyenhance Duo*
Brow Definer side from the Tweezerman Eyenhance Duo in the brows*
Tweezerman Browmousse Brow Gel*


Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Siren

I practiced some restraint when it came to Black Friday but since the day isn't over yet, I might just get something else from one of the awesome indie sellers holding a sale (check out Phyrra's list here to see a few plus the ones in my last few posts) or tomorrow for Small Business Saturday (which I posted about here).

I am super duper excited about what I got today though. This is the Recollections Rolling Cart with ten drawers purchased from Michaels. It normally retails for $79.99, all plastic cart organizers were 60% off bringing the price down to $31.99 plus there was a coupon that gave me an additional 25% off that which meant it was $24.00 plus tax, or $25.85 total. 

I have been looking at this set before but balked at the price. My dream storage would be a mixture between the Ikea Alex and the Helmer or the Muji drawers but I definitely can't complain when I got this for so cheap. I'm not done organizing my makeup in there but I can definitely tell that I need many more baskets to fill the inside.


How was your Thanksgiving? Did you have a nice Black Friday?

Products marked with an asterisk were sent for consideration by the PR or brand.


  1. Yay you're using a Cover FX product! I love their Total Coverage Cream Foundation - it's my heavy-duty piece of Holy Grail :3
    I got a couple Unii palettes for Black Friday because I've been wanting them for ages and I finally bit the bullet. I didn't take advantage of the Sephora or Sugar Pill sales though so maybe next year :P x

  2. You look very pretty.

    That's a great makeup storage tower.

    Canada has adopted Black Friday, and I had a pretty good one for the weekend sales. Picked up a few clothing items (socks) and a lotion from VSPink.
