Haul: Essence Blossom Dreams Collection

Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals!

It’s been a little bit since I’ve reviewed an Essence collection and to be honest, that’s largely due to there not being a collection that really interested me. A lot of their more recent collections have been quite bland or nothing revolutionary so I’ve not bothered to try anything. However, on a trip to target with a quest to purchase appropriate theatre attire, I stumbled into the cosmetics department and saw a newer Essence collection! I don’t know how long it’s been available because I don’t find myself popping in to Target too often, but it was new enough for there to still be a vast majority of the collection. However, they were all able to be opened and weren’t sealed to avoid contaminated product. I swear Target don’t even know what to do with a cosmetics section, it’s ridiculous how often things are trashed, but that’s a rant for another day. Today I’m sharing the products that I picked up from the Blossom Dreams collection! I hope that you enjoy!

Haul: Priceline 40% Off Cosmetics

Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals!

Today I wanted to take the opportunity to share my little haul from the Priceline 40% off Cosmetics sale that happened on August 16th and 17th, last week! I was working both days of the sale so I had to rush around in my break to pick up the items that I was after! There was also a few other good sales happening for non-cosmetic items so I tried to take advantage of those sales as well! I hope that you enjoy this post and don’t forget to let me know what you picked up during the sale!

3 Underrated Beauty Products

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to discuss the products that just don’t get the hype that they deserve. I pride myself on talking about products that I deem worth the money, especially for someone who has lacked money and had to be a relatively smart consumer when it comes to makeup, an ‘unnecessary’ expense. I hope that you find this post helpful and maybe encourage you to try some stuff that you maybe didn’t think to bother with!

Easter Week: Decorating

Hey guys!

I love Easter, despite the fact that in the southern hemisphere, it is meant to be celebrated in the second half of the year, but I digress. I love that everyone has another excuse to spend time with their family and eat food. Being that my name is Pastelsparkles, I also really love that pastels are a big part of this time of year. I feel quite in my element among the mints, lilacs, and pale pinks. I wanted to share a little bit about how I plan to decorate my life for this holiday, and hopefully it’ll serve as a bit of inspiration if you’re feeling like you need a bit of Easter in your every day.
