So, I have been acquiring some new makeup goodies over the past couple of months. For a few weeks I wasn’t able to enjoy or really play with any of it thanks to my dental work and I am just now really getting to play with a lot of it. Some things I have had long enough to review but I am including it here too.
Most of this is drugstore stuff I would pick up at random when I was at Wal-Greens, Wal-Mart or CVS. Some is new stuff to try out and others are a restock of old favorites and holy grails.
Let’s jump in because, girl, I bought a lot!
Let’s start with the restocks. Two brow pencils that are amazing and I needed a refill on are the Covergirl Ultra Fine Brow Pencil and the ELF Brow Pencil, both in deeper shades now that my hair is darker.
Of course my holy grail mascaras from L’Oreal.
And I needed to stock up on my favorite Faux Mink Lashes from Ardell.
Complexion wise, I got another compact of Advanced Radiance Pressed Powder from Covergirl which is a great powder with a natural finish. I also picked up another Wet N Wild Cushion Foundation because I love that one for everyday in the warmer months and another Wet N Wild Photo Focus Concealer in a lighter shade because the formula is fantastic!
Now for some new goodies! Let’s start with the eyes.
As you probably already know because of the reviews and tutorials but I recently got the Morphe Boss Mood Palette and the ABH Rivera. Reviews are linked below. I also found the Profusion Sunkissed Palette all by it’s lonesome at Wal-Mart the other day. I will have a first impression of it up on my Youtube next week,
Also for the eyes I picked up a few new liners from Wet N Wild. I love their Felt Tip Eyeliner, so much so, I picked it up in brown. I grabbed their automatic “waterproof” pencil as well for the tight line.
Hiding on a bottom shelf at CVS I found some of the Rebel Rose Collection from Wet N Wild so I got the palette in Bed of Roses. And from Ulta I got the Nyx Glitter Goals which I highly recommend for mess free glitter.
Moving on to the face. I went a little highlighter crazy but what can I say, Wet N Wild makes some crazy good highlighters. I was beyond impressed with all of these.
Nostalgia got the best of me and I picked up Covergirl Instant Cheekbones in Sophisticated Sable. Ya mom used it, ya grandma used it. It’s a classic and still is a great product. A truly neutral blush that gives a natural contoured look.
I am trying to find that perfect bronzer that isn’t Hourglass. I think Sunset Striptease comes pretty damn close.
Rounding of the face makeup, I picked up the Wet N Wild Photo Focus Translucent Powder to test out and the Rose Serum from the Rebel Rose Collection. I have no idea of the claims. I did find a new favorite setting spray, the Lumui Shake and Glow from L’Oreal leaves the skin looking amazing but doesn’t help with longevity.
Lastly for the face, I got two deluxe samples from Sephora. One of the Fenty Powder and the Hourglass Veil Primer. Both are lovely.
I only have two lippies, both from the Wet N Wild Zodiac Collection in the shades Pieces and Virgo. Both are stunning!!!
One of my favorite things to purchase is the seasonal or limited edition collections from Sonia Kashuk at Target. This Spring’s set is so pretty, useful and great quality. These are infused with charcoal in the brush hairs to prevent bacteria build up.
And lastly, Nail Polish. I am obsessed with the Naughty Nudes Collection from Sinful Colors. I think I have almost all the shades. One isn’t pictured that I have but it’s hiding in my bathroom somewhere which is the shade Body Language.
The Shades above from left to right are:
- Come Closer.
- Skinny Dip.
- Nude Mood
- Copper A Feel.
And that is it! Phew… And I already am gather stuff for my next Haul. I need to do a home decor and goods haul as well as clothes.
Anyway, you can see me test out some of these products in the video below:
Okay, I will see ya’ll with a new tutorial! Bye now.
