The Latte Palette by Dominque Cosmetics Review and Swatches / Favorite of the Week


The Latte Palette was never on my radar when it was first released. 

I never even gave it a second thought to be quite honest.

A few months back, in April to be exact ( I had to check my receipt),  I had a 20% off coupon from Ulta which included prestige brands.

So I figured what the hell, I could always return it if I didn't like it. You know how that discount usually prompts purchases out the ordinary. LOL

Fast forward to the end of July and I was going through to my palette stash and discovered this palette after totally forgetting about it.

C'mon now I am sure I am not the only one who forgets about makeup they have bought.

My Husband and I were celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary and I wanted to try some new makeup that I had never used and this one was what I chose.

I am really surprised how much I liked this palette. You can use a few of the colors as a bronzer and highlight as well.

Again when I first bought this so many months ago I really thought I was not going to like it and would end up returning it.

How wrong was I?  This has some really fun colors and great neutrals.

I highly recommend you check this palette out, especially if you were on the fence about it.

Retail is $42.00.

I know Dominique Cosmetics has a new palette called Lemonade that just released last month I believe.  
I may look into that once it comes into stores.

Let me know if you have tried this palette?

XOXO,

My Adidas Originals Flashback in Black and white



I love a good sneaker and when I saw these Adidas Flashbacks I knew they would be mine.

I originally saw them on the Nordstrom anniversary sale and literally since day one of the sale they were sold out in my size.

They're backordered until August 11th I believe.

About two ago I was on Facebook and a Zappos ad with a $25 off coupon popped up so I saved the offer and decided to browse their website.




Low and behold what did I see?

Yup my Adidas Flashback in stock and with $25 dollars off I got them cheaper than Nordstroms sale price.

Zappos has free 2 day shipping which is a major plus.

These shoes are super cute and they are really comfortable.

These take me back to my childhood.

I know several of you had wanted these too.

Let me know if you snagged some cool sneaks of sale recently?

XOXO,

Vicki

Dior Addict Coral Glow Lip Set Review and Swatches


Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! 

I know I did, I celebrated my 17th wedding Anniversary with my husband. 
We have actually been together for 22 years. 

Wow that means we have been together since birth...LOL

Since I missed last Mondays Favorite of the week I will be doing two of my favorites this week.

First up;
Dior Addict Coral Glow Lip set


Coral 004 Dior Lip Glow

Coolista 524 Dior Addict Laquer Stick



I don't usually buy Dior makeup much anymore.

I used to back in the day but now there are so many brands out that are so much more affordable.

I bought this on a whim from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I was sure I would probably end up returning it.

Once I tried Coolista Laquer stick on, I knew it was a keeper for sure.

The color is a gorgeous brownish light mauve color. (That makes sense , right?)

Great description I know.  The coral lip glow is basically a lip balm, it doesn't show much of any color on my lips and it came w a deluxe sample of the Dior lip maximizer and a cute pink bag.

You know with anything Pink and I am sold.

Which is funny because it does come in a pink set , the lip products and I wasn't much of fan of the lip laquer in that set.

This set is $70.00 and retail is a great price considering the two full size products are over $70 alone plus you get the cute deluxe lip maximizer sample and bag.

This is sold out online now but I am sure you can still find it Nordstrom stores.


What do you think of this set?

XOXO,

Vicki
