Holiday Nails: Halloween 2013

A little while before Halloween this year my husband gave me the Kiss Nail Dress in Black Cat and since I had used one before that I had liked it and I am very bad at nail art I knew this would be a better way to do the Halloween Nails for this year.

Unsealed Makeup: Why do people open stuff they aren't planning to buy?

This is actually more of a problem for me at drugstores than at the Dollar Tree, but this is a reminder that you need to check your makeup is sealed, or at least looks like it hasn't been used, very closely before purchase.


My husband bought this for me at Dollar Tree - Original Instagram of the purchase here - and generally we have pretty good luck at the Dollar Tree we visit that stuff is new and unopened.  Sure there is the occasional, someone stole the item from the packaging problem, which if you have to steal $1 makeup you have bigger problems that need to be dealt with, but it is pretty obvious when that happens.  On rare occasion though, we find something that has either clearly been used, or is already broken.  If it is broken that could have happened at anytime and maybe some customer did it, or it happened during shipping, powder products break, and easily it seems so I try not to hold that against them.  But very rarely, at least at our Dollar Tree, something was clearly used, before it was repackaged for sale at Dollar Tree, and my husband is generally pretty good at weeding those out.  Unfortunately in this case it was an instant of it was already unsealed and clearly used, before being repacked for sale at the Dollar Tree, and because the packaging itself was dusty as well, my husband didn't catch it.  He said this batch was particularly bad and he had put back several other eye shadows because they had been obviously tampered with.

Empties: Makeup I Have Used Up: 10-02-2013

This past month saw more than the usual amount of makeup used up and the retirement of a brush once I decided it wasn't worth fighting with it anymore.  But first, the makeup:
