Sephora Mini Haul

Watts Up is Benefit's new highlighter and I must say that I'm a fan. It's so pretty! And way more practical that High Beam.  This highlighter is a champagne color with soft shimmer. It glides on so nicely and you can blend it out with the fuzzy tip on the end.

The picture of the actual lipstick didn't want to upload. :/ But this is Fusion Pink. It's an Amplified finish. It's a very reddy pink. The color is a little darker in person.

Mega Lip Swatch Post!

This post has been a long time coming. The reason that it has taken so long is that I've had some crazy skin issues with my lips. OCC Lip Tar swatches were supposed to be included in this post, but I can't wear them due to my lips being on the fritz. I'm not convinced that my issues were caused by the Lip Tars, but they happened around the same time. However, I haven't used them in a long time, but the problem keeps coming back. Anyways, here are the lip swatches that I did get to.

Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette!

As you can see, the packaging is VERY luxe! I'm a girl that loves her fancy things! The velvet box holding the palette is so soft and can be used for jewelry or to hold something else. The thing that I dislike the most about the packaging is that it is extremely prone to fingerprints. I HATE that, but it's really the only downside to this palette that I see. The little corner that is open in the palette allows you to lift up the shadows and use it as another container (or a secret hiding place). The design around the edge and the jeweled "UD" are super cute, too.

Fabulous Mirror!

I saw Beauty Crush talk about Les Tai Tai Model Mirrors on her YouTube. They just looked sooo cool! A large, but compact light up mirror is perfect for any girl on the go. And the designs are all so cute! They used to be $35 I think, but now they are $25. I ordered 1 Model Mirror and 1 extra battery as a backup. I received a package with just a mirror in it one day so I emailed the company about the battery, wondering if it was being sent separately or if it was just a mistake. Then, the very next day, I received another package containing ANOTHER mirror and 2 batteries! It was a beautiful mistake! lol So I gave my sister the extra. Check em out! Maybe you'll get 2...

Kat Von D True Romance Palette in Truth

I got this palette because it was on sale on I thought it would be nice because of my green eyes. The pigmentation is a little off on some of the colors. Also, the staying power on a couple is really weak as well. The colors together are really unique and worth a shot if you like those colors. I still need to test it more before I would recommend it to anyone. So we shall see...

Too Faced Eye Love Palette

This palette was a 500 point perk at Sephora. Since they haven't had the best perks lately, I decided to jump all over this. It also came with a mini Shadow Insurance. The palette is made up of 2 shadows from each of the Too Faced palettes until that point. (Naked Eye, Natural Eye, Smokey Eye, and Romantic Eye) The shadows in the Smokey Eye section are from the old Smokey Eye palette, not the one I have. This palette is nice to have just as a back up to the others. Or if you want a palette that gives you 4 or more different looks. But just as with all of the other Too Faced palettes, the quality is very nice.

Too Faced Natural Eye Palette

This is my oldest Too Faced palette that's why they have so much more use than the other ones. This is a very good palette to have in your collection. There are a couple colors that are dupes for some in the UD Naked palette. This one is a little thicker than the others because it came with a double ended brush thingy. I really liked having the angled brush with the palette because it made using the dark colors as eyeliner much easier. The only color that I am not a fan of is Nude Beach. It's a pretty color, but the glitter falls out and gets all over your face. Also, the Fashion eye look card picture didn't turn out so it is missing.

Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette

I wanted this palette because I have green eyes and I thought that it would be perfect for me. One thing that I didn't realize is that this palette is mostly matte colors and I'm not really into that. However, this palette does contain one of my favorite highlight color in Soulmates. It's super soft and just amazing. This is probably my least favorite of my 4 Too Faced palettes surprisingly enough. But I still use it from time to time.

 Lip haulage! With swatches!

Too Faced Smokey Eye Palette

I was really excited to see that Too Faced was redoing their Smokey Eye Palette because their first one was a little too goth for me. The Too Faced palettes are great for beginners or for girls that want a quick grab n go look. These colors are really gorgeous and good quality. Plus the direction cards make it simple for the girls that don't know where to start. I would recommend these to anyone. Worth every penny.

Mermaid Mani!

 OPI's Mermaid Tears
OPI's Go For It Green

I was sooo in love with this mani! Both colors applied really well. Go For It Green is a great layering polish and I can't wait to try it over some other colors.

Essie's Smooth Sailing Mani

This polish is very unique in my collection. I don't have any other periwinkle type colors. Also there is very finely milled glitter in the polish that gives it a beautiful sheen. I actually got these done at the shop, but brought this polish in for them to put on me and my manicurist was gushing over the color and wanted to go out and buy it. I was probably my favorite out of the Brazilliant collection from Essie.

NYX Cream Blush in Glow

This is my very first cream blush! I like it a lot. I tend to wear blush colors that look like this (MAC Hipness, MAC Marine Life, Nars Orgasm). It's a very natural color that would compliment a variety of skin tones. It was a safe choice for my first cream blush, but it does make me want to try more.

2 NYX Lipsticks

 Castle (It looks a little darker in this picture than in real life.)

 NYX (yes, that's the name of the color)

I love both of these colors! Castle had to grow on me a little bit because I thought it would be a bit more pink than it was. NYX is such an awesome color! I love this orange! It's so bright and the shimmer adds nice dimension. It's a wearable orange. Castle is not as wearable. I'd probably put a gloss over it to blend it out. NYX lipsticks are great because they are cheap and very pigmented. They are worth a try if you can find them near you.

MAC Surf Baby Haul!

 My Paradise Cheek Powder
My camera does this no justice, but it is a gorgeous orange blush with a gold overspray. The gold is much more thick than others in the past.

 Sun Blonde Eye Shadow

 Swell Baby Eye Shadow

Swell Baby is more pigmented than it appears in this picture. Both shadows are wonderful colors. Grays & yellows are probably my favorite eye shadow colors so I had to get these. They were definite gaps in my collection.

 Surf the Ocean Crushed Metal Pigment Stack
I fell so deep in love with these immediately! I will never pass on a crushed metal pigment stack again! They are so amazingly pigmented and smooth! They all have an awesome shimmer to them. I was so impressed with these ones that I went back the next day and bought the other pigment stack.

 Summer Stash Crushed Metal Pigment Stack
These more neutral colors are going to come in handy on a more every day basis. They are just so pretty! They swatch so well that it almost made my mouth water. hahaha

 Blue Noon Powerpoint Pencil
This is my first Powerpoint pencil. It's very smooth and such a nice color. It's great on the lower lash line.

 Good Lovin' Lipglass
This is a great everyday lip gloss. It would go great over any color. There are very fine shimmers in it that you can see in the right light.

 Hibiscus Lipstick

I love this color! I have a few colors similar to this, but nothing that's exactly the same. Cremesheens are probably my favorite lipsticks by MAC. This color is like Vegas Volt and Toxic Tale had a baby.

Overall, I loved the pigment stacks the most. If you pick up anything from this collection I would recommend the Surf the Ocean pigment stack and the Hibiscus lipstick.
