Weekend Rewind. What's in my Bag?

Well, Well, Well.... who decided to do some make-up shopping this
weekend and actually post about it??!!

This Girl!!

I actually haven't been buying many new things, but there have been a few drug-store
products on my radar for the past month and wanted to share with you guys.

Maybelline recently came out with a product called "Color Tattoo" that is
getting a lot of buzz. They are a cream shadow that can be used as a base or
be worn on their own. They claim to last 24 hours.

MAC has a product similar to this called "Paint pots." They are highly buzzed about
products that beauty gurus love. They are in a pot just like these above and are used as
an eye-shadow primer. They retail for $17.50 while the Maybelline Color Tattoo
are $5.84!

The colors I got are from left to right: Too Cool, Tough as Taupe, and Pomegranate
Punk. I cannot wait to use the Tough as Taupe shade... this was the color I was so interested
in b/c is is a matte gray/taupe. You don't see that very often.

Even though I wasn't planning to coordinate the colors I think all 3 shades would be
great together. You could wear the Tough as Taupe on your lid, Pomegranate in your
crease, and Too Cool under your brow as a highlight.

Next item on my list was the also new buzzed about Maybelline Bouncy blushes.

Shades I purchased left to right are Hot Tamale and Coffee Cake.

These seem to be pretty sheer in coverage... so, while that Hot Tamale color looks really
bright and scary it's actually not that bright. I think it will be a great color for
spring/summer when you have some tan going on.

The coolest thing about these blushes is the texture!! When the claim to "Bouncy"
they really are. When you press down on the product it almost becomes like
memory foam and creates an indention.

It has a very lightweight texture that feels like a powder, but apparently melts on
your skin more like a cream to give you that radiant glow.

So, the Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush wasn't really on
my list, but I have heard good things about this....SO.... yeah, it got thrown in the

This color is called "Warm" and I think it's so pretty because you get all shades of

These blushes don't really promise to give you a ton of color, but more of a healthy glow.
There are also pearls infused into the product to highlight and add radiance to the skin.
So, on days when you just want to feel/look more natural this is a good go to.

I think it's funny that they market it as a "mood boosting blush." Really? Can a blush
boost your mood??!! Who knows? I will let you know if I am floating around on Cloud 9
when wearing this. But, for some reason I'm not really counting on it.

So, Wet n Wild is not a product I would reach for on my own. I always felt like
their stuff was not worth buying b/c it's so cheap. Snobby, right? I always
feel like price=quality. Sometimes it is, but not always. A girl I watch on youtube, that is
a news anchor in morning, but beauty guru by afternoon really promotes and favorites
some of Wet n Wild's eyeshadow palettes. She recently did a favorite eye products of
2011 and this palette in "Silent Treatment" made her list.

The shades really are gorgeous. I love the bottom taupe shade!! This was under $3
so you can't go wrong trying it!

Ok, so YAY for me doing a Weekend Rewind post, right?! Hope some of these products
peek your interest. They certainly have mine.

Have a great day!


  1. I'm loving the Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze! And you should definitely pick up some more Wet-n-Wild shadow palettes!! They are amazing!

  2. I love wet n wild eye shadow palettes! They are what I usually go to because they are so pretty and pigmented! I think I have every palette! You will live them!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
