You've Been Alerted!

Hello fellow beauties! I am always searching for new or improved ways of arranging and storing my makeup. My collection is currently sitting in the living room of our small duplex. We are house hunting and I will be so glad to be able to move everything into our bedroom.

I recently went onto The Container Store's website and discovered one of their storage drawers was on sale. I wanted to share with y'all in case anybody else is looking for something similar. Their 3-drawer box orginally sells for 12.99. It is currently on sale for 8.99. The 3-drawer box is small measuring 6 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches, is constructed of translucent plastic, and has chrome-plated drawer pulls. The item is backordered on the website, but I called my local store and they still had some in stock.

I am using the 3-drawer box to hold my pigments, cotton balls, most used eyeshadow palettes and other frequently used beauty items.

The Hi Life

Hello to all my readers! I know, it's been months since I've written a blog post. I've been enjoying my family, friends and summer!

Kasey from Still Glamorus Cosmetics recently held a giveaway on Twitter. I believe she picked 3 winners. I was one of the winners and was so excited! I love her products. She has her own makeup line and sells a variety of items such as pigments, blushes, lipsticks, lipglosses, foundation. I won a new product called The HiLife highlighter.

Description from her website:

This highlighter is going to be your new best friend!
Its sheer frosty finish gives your cheekbones, brow bone or any area you want highlighted the perfect glow!
Great for all skintones and a little goes a long way!

This product is extremely pigmented and smooth. Mine came packaged in a bubble mailer and had a sticker over the sifter to prevent any fall out. I believe this highlighter has 5 grams of product just as the Make me Glow blushes. Below are pictures of the product and also swatches on the back of my hand. The HiLife retails for $10. You can use the code STILLGLAM to receive 10% off your order.

Thanks to Kasey for showing her followers love! What highlighters do you like to use? Have you tried The HiLife yet?
