There is no such thing as "just popping in" when it comes to Marshalls. That place is a vacuum; it sucks you in with its well-ordered displays and sale prices!
And yes, soap. I buy all my soap at Marshalls; they have really yummy smelling ones in fancy packaging. I cannot resist a good bar of soap!
Today I walked in with the full intention of only purchasing two bars of soap. I'm headed out of town this weekend to visit friends, and I always bring my hostess a new soap to try- it's our thing! That's one bar for her, one for her sister, and... two for me?? At least that's how it worked out!
|Two for them...|
|Two for me!|
Add to that TWO pairs of sandals, vacuum pack bags for my vacation, pink skirt hangars, a white blouse, and a seersucker dress!!
"Just going to buy soap." Riiiiight!!!
You would think that after having to use a CART, I would have learned my lesson; but no, not me! Impulse buyer that I am, I actually stopped and looked at the displays that surround the checkout line.
So glad that I did.
I found a perfectly packaged NYX 78 Eye Shadow Palette for $12.99!! I heart NYX products! Great quality and always super affordable!

This particular palette was titled "Every Color Imaginable". I don't know about every color, but it is loaded with some stunning shades.
I usually like to wait and use a product for awhile before I review it; but since I'll probably never use all the shadows, I thought I could at least swatch and snap judgement them! Ha!
|A rainbow of brights!|
Thus far, this is what I have discovered:
1~ The darker shades are much more pigmented than the lighter ones. They required only one swipe of the provided sponge-tip applicator, while the lighter shades required two or three strokes.
2~ The metallics are heavily pigmented and would work great for a 60's inspired eye look.
3~ The shadows all have a silky feel to them, and thankfully did not crumble all over the place after use.
4~ The packaging is gorgeous! Shiny black, compact, and with a large interior mirror.
5~ I am in love with the blues and pinks!! Beautiful!
|My faves! The last color on the right|
is a gorgeous shade of coral!
6~ The purples and the large center shadows were the worst! 3-5 layers to get to the desired shade!
|after layer, and still so light!|
I have no idea about the staying power of these shadows, but given my previous experiences with NYX cosmetics, I'm going to guess these will be equally as amazing!
Now I need to decide which colors to try out first~ got any suggestions Poodles??
Maybe I should stop by Ulta and pick out a new lipstick to match.
It'll only take a minute... ;-)
