Buy 1 Get 1 Free - Maybelline

So, who doesn't like free stuff? I know, I know you have to buy something first but it's a pretty good deal. You're buying 2 things for the price of one!

This week at Walgreens, they have a buy 1 get 1 free for Maybelline eye cosmetics. Since, I needed a new mascara I had to take this opportunity and get it. I love Maybelline's Define a Lash Lengthening Mascara, so I thought of giving Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara.

My two items, I decided to get another pencil liner. When I got home, I looked at the pencil liner... looked awfully familiarrrr

... it's pretty thin compared to my Sephora waterproof pencil liner...

... really thin indeed, and AHA this was one of my first ever pencil liner! This goes way back to like junior high or something? lol don't remember how well it was but it's worth to give it another try since this was the free item.

And here is the Lash Stiletto, I really like how long the bristles are. Love the packaging, it's so cuuute. Can't wait to try this out and see if it compares to the Define a Lash one.

Yup, that's me. See my lashes? That was the magic from Define a Lash, hope Lash Stiletto does that magic too! Btw, I love how plump my lips look here lol

Walgreens still has it's buy 1 get 1 free until the end of this week -- Nov. 7th so check it out if you want some eye cosmetics

El'view: Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub

Claims: To remove surface dirt, makeup, and oil. The gel helps to lather up into a foam and the blue and white microbeads helps scrub your face leaving skin feel clean and energized.

Pro: I like this product quite a lot. It does what it claims. The scent is also really refreshing, I use it every day when I shower and it cleans my face from all the oil and the makeup that I wore for the day. The beads aren't too harsh on the skin and it sure does leave a tingly sensation after you rinse.

Con: The only bad thing about this product (to me, cause it might not happen to you) is that it leaves my face quite dry afterewards. I mean you can't say that it didn't work because it really takes off the oil and dirt. But, I use a moisturizer right after I shower it's not a big deal for me.
Price: $7-8

Would I buy it again? I'm on my second now! That's how much I like it because it actually works. My skin is oily as the day goes on so this is a life saver for me.

On another note -- nothing to do with the neutrogena review lol

Cherry Culture is having a 20% off on your entire order, so if you love/like or want to try NYX Cosmetics, do go to the site and check it out. Btw, the price at cherry culture is a lot cheaper than the NYX's website. I already placed my order, will do a haul when it comes.

Tata all!
