Blog Sale Haul

Another belated post here! 

Awhile back I purchased a few things from a couple different blog sales. The first purchase was from Sam from www.saaammage.com. Her blog itself is more of a personal one but I follow her on her Youtube channel where she has beauty related videos. My second purchase was from Christina of msodapop.blogspot.com. Both sellers were awesome. There was a slight mishap with Christina, but she quickly resolved the issue. I would recommend both if interested!

Without further ado here is what I got!

Purchased from Sam:





I have always wanted to try Cargo blushes, and when I saw Sam had a blush and a bronzer I knew I wanted to snag them! The shade Mendocino is the gorgeous plum color (though it's showing up more red on camera)  with the slightest golden shimmer. I love the color and the formula and the packaging. It rivals with NARS for my love of blushes, I do think I will be hunting for more!

I thought from looking at pictures of the Bronzer that it would compare to the likes of Benefit's Hoola or NARS Laguna but found that it is a very different bronzer. It has shimmer and reminds me of a highlighting type of bronzer. Rather than use this to contour, you would put this on top of the cheek bones or elsewhere you would want to highlight.

Purchased from Christina: 


I finally got my first Naked palette! (Woohoo!) The funny thing is I've already purchased two Naked Original palettes as gift for other people. I've been eyeing both palettes for myself for awhile but couldn't justify the purchase. I lusted for it, but didn't need it. When browsing through Christina's blog sale, I saw this which was discounted a good $15 off the normal retail price, and bit the bullet. (I mean, what an awesome deal, right?? riiiighhhht??) There was a slight delay with the shipment (which was the mishap I was referring to) but it was quickly resolved and to top it off Christina threw in some extra goodies as well as writing a heartfelt note! (It really made me smile Christina, sounds cheesy but ya know! haha) Anyways when I received this bad boy, it felt like Christmas! After wanting it for a year and a half I finally got my first one! I could't even tell it had been used at all! It was new enough for me!

(one long paragraph essay later...)

Anywaaaay that's what I got on my first round of blog shopping. I think I will begin doing more of my shopping this way! What awesome blog sale goodies have ya'll gotten recently? Lemme know! <3

  6. Awesome stuff! I love following Sam too on youtube, she does great reviews. I've seen alot of great things to do with cargos bronzers, I really like the one with stripes of blush and bronzer!

    I've yet to get a naked palette! So glad you got it at a cheaper price, it isn't very affordable here but it's still so worth at the end of the day!
