Not a terribly exciting week in hauls, but I'm hanging on to my $$$ so I can add to my Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes during their 50% off sale on 12/15! I've given up on my Walmart ever stocking the new Hard Candy line, but I did spot 2 new end caps that had a new Nicole by OPI collection and the new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes. I only picked up one of the Nicole's, but it looks like a good one, because it's a mint green shade with micro shimmer. The new Sally Hansen polishes, although pricey at $6.50, also had some trendy shades and you know Fairy Teal is the one that caught me eye first! I also picked up Vivid from their Lacquer Shine line for the simple fact that it looked like it was a glowy wine color with a black base. I walked away from it not once, but twice, before I finally realized I wouldn't be satisfied until I put it in the cart.
The other two products I purchased are not nail-related, but I wanted to share them with you because they are beauty-related, and I'm impressed with them both. I was impressed enough with the Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm that this is my second purchase. I bought my first tube in October and it's almost gone. I have tons of lip balm products and fear I have an addition to always having something on my lips. After using this product for a couple of days, I found I was applying it less and less during the day, leading me to believe that it must actually be hydrating my lips enough to make them feel moisturized for a longer period of time. It's a clear twist up stick that feels refreshing and slightly tingly or minty on the lips, but not nearly as intense as the original Carmex in the little pot. I picked this up at Walmart for $2.49. I'm a huge Redken product fan, and I was happy to have finally located their new Aerate 08 Bodyfying Cream-Mousse when I got my hair cut and colored this week. It's a very light cream that seems to have air pockets in it, somewhat like a mousse, but without any sticky or crunchy feeling to it once applied to damp hair. It leaves my hair soft and definitely much fuller. This retails for around $12-$14 for a 2.3 oz. jar, and I find that less is more with this, so I only use a small amount for big results.
Are their any products you've been hunting for and recently found? Who's plotting their order for Rescue Beauty Lounge's sale?
