Beauty Haul

I've decided to to I'm going to steer my blog into a different direction.....pretty much focusing on beauty and maybe some fashion/style bits here and there. Due to me not wanting to manage more than one blog however, I'll probably still have some completely unrelated posts.... ya knoooowwww.

So I guess I'll start off with my collective haul over the past month. It was the month of my birthday so I got a few goodies! [;

Oh and I purchased all the crap  err I mean make up myself with my own $$ with the exception of the Fresh Lip Treatment which was a gift from Sephora for my bday!

Revlon Lip Butters, Fresh Lip Treatment, Mac lipstick, NYX lipsticks, Nars eyeliner, NYX lipliner, Nars blushes, Sephora blending brush, Sephora + Pantone Color of the Year Collection

Revlon Lip Butters in Creamsicle and Candy Apple, Mac Amplified in Vegas Volt, NYX matte in Indie Flick and Sweet Pink (Fresh Lip Treatment in Original and Rose behind)

Front: Sephora Oval blending brush Back Mac 217 (for comparison)

I really REALLY love the Sephora Oval brush. I find it easier to blend than my MAC 217 as it is denser

Left: MAC 217 (for comparison) Right: Sephora Oval blending brush

NARS blushes have become my favorite. On the pricier side but worth it!
Amour: Peachy Pink- matte (Reminds me of Orgasm without the shimmer)

Luster: My favorite so far - a shimmery gold peach color

Albatross: GORGEOUS golden highlighter


Desert Flower: Matte peach color and Coral: Pretty self explanatory with shimmer

Apricot Brandy: Can be used as a highlighter or sheer blush, a beautiful shimmery gold burnt orange color.

Tangerine Tango: This lipstick is divine! A reddish orange color with a cream finish

The three neutral shades have a satin finish while Carnelian is a shimmery coral.

I've been loving oranges!

SO I think that will be it for now.....I'll put swatches up on the next post! TTFN!

BTW I took all these pics and apologize for the not so great quality, will work on improving that!
