I Know What Girls Like...

New Makeup, Jewelry, and Shoes of course!


Missoni for Target Pumps
I'm not a huge fan of the Missoni signature zigzag pattern, but these pumps are a nice, toned down alternative. My mom picked them up at Target - I can't believe she actually got her hands on them! The designer collections at Target are big around my hometown, and usually sell out in minutes. I like these shoes, because they're good for every day at work, and have what I like to call a "commuting heel" - a bit on the thicker side and lower than most of my other shoes. I think they're pretty cute!


Clinique Lid Smoothie 8 Hour Eye Colour
So I really wanted to try this, as I have an ongoing obsession with all long lasting makeup. However, I don't really care for the shade I picked out. I generally go for bronze/taupe/beige shades for the lids, and this one is so light that it's almost...white. Like hippy flower child white. It reminds me more of a highlighter than an eyeshadow. Totally miserable, right? Aside from the shade itself, the formula is nice. I applied the lid smoothie this morning before work - 4 hours later no sign of creases. I also like the cooling, metal applicator on the tube - it feels niiiice.


MAC Cremesheen Glass in Partial to Pink
OK so this shade is nothing new, but I do love it! I like how Cremesheen glides on your lips - it's not sticky whatsoever and gives you a luscious, fluffy pout. This shade is natural, so it's nice with a heavy eye or if i'm being lazy and don't feel like applying lipstick =)


Unique Bracelet
I got this piece at a consignment shop in Jersey called All Things Consignment. I like going to these types of stores and seeing what interesting things I can dig up. This shop has an amazing jewelry selection (among many other things) and I had to practically pull myself out of the store after taking home 5 items. The store has an array of vintage, handmade, and custom made jewelry that is just so different, not to mention inexpensive. Definitely worth a look if you live in the area!


Hope everyone had a great weekend, and Happy Makeup Monday!
