Did you really expect I didn’t do any shopping? REALLY, readers? Be warned, this post is picture heavy!
Great haul from /r/makeupexchange! 3 Zoyas, my first KB Shimmer, my first Spoiled, and ESSIE SHINE OF THE TIMES! FABULOUSSSS
If you remember, I fell in love with Napoleon Perdis, so when I found out they were going to be on Hautelook of course I went on a spree!
This little box set included one eyeshadow quad, 2 blushes, and a lip gloss which is iridescent!
Shadow swatches, and no primer used! great pigmentation. high quality, as I have come to expect from NP
All the swatches together, including the lip gloss below!
Closeup of the gloss swatch.
The other big set was a makeup bag with your ‘whole face’ in it. This is the insert that explained what everything was. Mascara, liner, more eyeshadow, and lip lacquer.
All the swatches! Mascara and liner up top, then the gloss, and the shadow quad below.
Shadow swatches. I love how well the colors are matched.
Bonus on the insert, a step by step guide on how to do your face! Looks like a smokey blue eye so I might try this on my next date! (HA!)
Bronzer mosaic + poof! I dont like using the puff but other than that this is great. Can you see the NP logo pressed in the powder? LOVE THE DEETS.
Blush mosaic! I bought these mosaic compacts because these are what the rep used on me at Ulta and they were at least half off, if not more.
cosmetic-love haul! it was like 6 bucks INCLUDING shipping for all these great samples! I know I can’t use the Orange super BB but other than that I am excited to try them all!
ZOINKS! Got these for regular retail price on ebay! It pays to keep saved sales, ladies! Now, if only someone would sell me the palette for less than 100 bucks….
another purchase from makeupexchange! one of the blushes is to replace one I just hit pan on (spice). I had tried to buy the UD Stardust–Space Cowboy color (because “see you, space cowboy”) but it turns out she had it mislabeled so she sent me TWO instead!
Blush swatches. Pinched above, and Spice below (which I fell in love with in college)
Stardust swatches! I love the incredible amount of shimmer! I think the brown of Diamond Dog will help ease me into natural looks since the sparkle will compensate for the lack of color. Maybe.
I had a coupon for 30% off. 4 polishes and a necklace, which were all already reduced.
The Champagne Trio has cute names!
Ulta clearance haul! all this for 24$, which is less than the original price of JUST the butter london set! This is my first butter london polish and i couldnt be happier!
Urban Decay sale!
Feminine swatches. somehow the pic of the palette went missing. Use your imagination. or Google.
Giving the UD tinted moisturizer a try! It’s actually a pretty good match for me!
A glob above a patch that is blended in. Can’t see it, can ya? NOPE. That’s awesome.
Stardust lip gloss in…you guessed it…SPACE COWBOY! Now I just need to get my hands on the shadows…
Win! Bonus points if you know why I lemming so hard for the Space Cowboy shades.
Swatchy swatch! It just doesn’t do the intense glitter justice.
Another angle, trying to catch the shine!
Marshall’s haul! Ciate nail sets, sparitual, sation, and too faced!
Too Faced Long Stemmed Lashes. One end is eyeliner and the other is an overnight lash treatment. This is listed online places for nearly 40 bucks!
Out of the box!
What do you think? Did you even make it until the end? 🙂 Any advice for any of my new purchases?
