It's that time again! You guessed it I went out and spent more money on beauty products! haha! ^_^
I went to my MAC store to get the Pearlglide Intense Liner in the color Industrial and the new Lip Stain in Style Setter, and when they said the were out [boo] I ended up buy a handful of things anyways! Gladly I can say that I went online the next morning and they had both in stock on MACCOSMETICS.COM and I bought them there! Phew that was a close one! !_!
Those will have to be in another haul post, if you'd like to see swatches and stuff?
So from my MAC Store I ended up getting a few things I have been wanting for a while.
I needed a new brow pencil. I usually use a brow cake and wax, but I'm finding that in the summer when I like my eyebrows to be a bit thinner I need to define the edges more with a pencil and then fill in with a brow cake for a softer look.
So I bought the MAC Browpencil in Spiked. This color matches my brows perfectly! Sometimes I find that certain brands I use for brow pencils can have too much of a reddy undertone and it doesn't match the cool undertones of my brows, so this one is great!
I also go a parfume in MV3. I LOVE LOOVE LOOOVE MAC Turquatic parfume and this one is great too. it is a vanillia-y musk-y scent that can go great layered upon another fragrance like maybe, coconut, and it can go great by itself. It is a great summery scent, but it can also be worn in the fall too. I think for summer I will use it alone or pair it with VS Beauty Rush in Coconutty, and in Fall I will pair it with Amor Amor [MY FAV FALL/WINTER SCENT]!
I also got the Prep + Prime Line Filler, by accident! This was in the wrong packaging! I wanted the Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone & thats what the package said, but when I got home It was the wrong one, so I ended up ordering the skin refined zone online with all the other things I couldn't get my hands on that day. But I do like this product! I use it with my eye cream under my eyes to fill in the thin skin and fine lines I have in that area. I think I will let my mom try this one to see if it works for her, seeing as she has more mature skin than I do.
Last but not least, I picked up 2 lipsticks. One is a Lustre and the other is an Amplified.
I picked up Chatterbox. It is an awseom vibrant pink color! The picture doesn't do it justice. I can't wait to do a tutorial with this lipstick so you guys can see it on the lips, instead of just swatches. Keep an eye out for that!
When I went to MAC I wanted Speed Dial but they again, didn't have it in stock, and it was a little more of a muted version on Chatterbox. I think I will pick it up soon because it was sooo pretty! Anyways, Chatter box is an Amplified, and I love this formulation as well. It's highly pigmented and in one or two storkes on the lips your ready to go. It isn't as drying as some finishes either!
Jubilee is a beautiful brown color, can you tell I like neturals, but its not nude. I like a nude lip sometimes but I like to have a little brown hue to my lips on an everyday basis, or when I don't know what to wear! -_^
Because Jubilee is a lustre, again it is a glossy finish, and these are by far, my favorite formulations because 1.) they don't dry out my lips! and 2.) the product stays on my lips for a significant amount of time. I have a hard time keeping lipsticks on my lips. i don't knwo what it is but I;ve have the problem since I was young, so I used a liner and a primer/conditioner before applying lipsticks.
I also got a box in the mail yesterday from Sephora! It looks like I got a ton of stuff but really I only got 2 things. The rest are free samples!
I bought the ever popular Benefit Legally Bronzed Kit. I don't use much Benefit, it's pretty pricey! But when these kits come out with the full sized products for an amazing price, I just have to jump on the opportunity to try out these products I wouldn't normally want to try.
This kit includes:
High Beam, a liquid highlighter that can be used before you set your face with powder to give you a nice glowy, dewy natural finish.
Gilded Eye Pencil, a metallic gold colored eye pencil that can be used to highlight various areas of the eye for that sultry sparkly eye in the summer time!
Hoola Blusher, a matte bronze blush that can be used as a blush, contour or as a all over bronzer. I used this today and it is great. The texture is amazing and the pigmentation is excellent!
Brown Bad Gal Lash, a volumizing brown mascara. I've used the Blue Bad Gal Lash a cuople of times but my lashes are so dark it didnt show up enough. So we will give this a try, and see what it does! ^_^
I picked up the Urban Decay eyeshadow in Cherry! Not only do I love the name and everything cherry related! The color is awesome its an iredecent shimmery pink color great for the inner corner of the lid and as a highlight! Its such a pretty color!
I also got a free deluxe sample of Urban Decay's Primer Potion in Eden, which I've been wanting to try out, but I tell myself I need to use what I have before I buy more! So this way it's free and I can actually try it out for a significant amout of time [because its a deluxe sample] and see if I reall like it or not.
