Benefit- Some Beauty to Love Set

This is another amazing set from Benefit. I purchased this set for $29. Unbelievable right? The Coralista alone is $28 regular price. This deal is a steal. The set comes with Coralista blush, Eye Bright pencil, That Gal primer, and Bad gal mascara. The packaging is so cute. The Coralista bush is a peachy shade with shimmer. It gives a healthy glow without being too much. I love the Eye Bright Pencil because the ease of application. You don't even need a mirror. I use it on my brow bone and inner tear ducts. The That Gal primer is okay. I love the color and smell, however I don't see any benefits. The Bad Gal mascara is also average. It is a bit in the drier side. Overall, I love this set. It is still available in Sephora, so grab one!

Neutral Smokey Eye using the Naked Palette

Revlon Lip Products

Because of the many raves in Youtube about these products, I decided to give them a try. I have purchased the Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink Pout. Suprisingly this lipstick applies smoothly and not drying at all. I also got the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Pop and Coral Reef. Wow, they are very pigmented, not sticky, overall beautiful.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

Okay, I have to admit. This is my first Urban Decay palette or eyeshadow. I was always curious about the quality of Urban Decay shadows and I wanted to expand my neutral shadow collection. This creation is released at the perfect time. Due to high demand, this product was sold out, but luckily I got my hands on one when ULTA released it on their website. This palette is amazing. I love ALL the colors. Not one I dislike. I am very impressed about the quality, texture, and value. The set comes with 24/7 liners in Zero and Whiskey. I am already familiar with Zero (I know its the best liner already), but whiskey is my new eyeliner love. I love that it is pigmented but soft (not so bold like zero). It also comes with a small primer potion. The cost for the set is $44.00 which is a great value in regards on the products you are getting.

Haul Time 8/9/10

MACLipstick - All Styled Up

My newest MAC purchase is the lipstick in All Styled Up. This lipstick came out with the "In the Groove" Collection. The finish is a cremesheen. I would describe this lipstick as a wearable Barbie cool toned pink. It is very pigmented, yet shiny and moisturizng. If you wish to have a lighter intensity, you can with only one swipe, but it can easily be built up.

Benefit Stay Put Set

I love sets. Especially when they are only $10. Because I wasn't convinced into buying the full size products, this gave me a chance to trying out the products without breaking the bank. I mean $10!! Fantastic!! I purchased it from Sephora. The set include sample sizes of Stay don't Stray Primer, Erase Paste in #2, and Creaseless shadow in RSVP. The Stay don't stray primer is an awesome under eye primer. It prevents concealer from disappearing and creasing. I never seen a product this effective for that purpose. On the other hand, it wasn't that great on the lid. My eyeshadow still creased but not under my eyes. I think this item is worth repurchasing. The concealer works great combined with the primer. I even feel comfortable just wearing the primer and concealer only. No foundations needed on the days I want to take it easy =). The creaseless shadow in rsvp is a pinky, peachy, and champagne color base. It creates an easy eye look. I can also use this as a highlighter for my cheekbones.

Nars So Famous Set

Because Nars can be expensive, I like to take advantage of sets that they release. I purchased this set at Sephora for $44.00. It is a great deal! It comes with the famous Deep Throat Blush, a mini sized Orgasm Multiple, and Bettina Lip Pencil. Deep Throat is a peachy shade with shimmer. I think it is suitable for many skin tones. The wear for this product last through out the day. I love the orgasm multiple. I use it alone when I am trying to achieve the fresh natural look. But I also love putting it under a matte blush. It gives a luminous glow within. The bettina lip pencil is okay. It is not very creamy and does not glide on my lips easily like other big lip pencils (NYX jumbo lip pencil.) But the product is still likable =).

Ravishing, Creme Cup, and Chatterbox Swatches

I love my recent purchase! It is very summery, moisturizing, and great color payoff.

From Left to Right - Ravishing , Creme Cup, and Chatterbox.

Ravishing is a cremesheen finish in a coral shade. Creme Cup is also a cremesheen finish. It is a pinky nude shade. I find this type of color is more wearable that a regular nude lipstick. Chatterbox is an amplified finish. It is a bright pink lips. This finish is more opaque than the other two lipstick. But they are all fantastic.

Ulta Haul and Random

I was in need of new nail polishes. This is what I picked up at ULTA. I got OPI nail polishes in You don't know Jacques!, Pamplona Purple, and Lucky Lucky Lavender. I love them all but Pamplona Purple is more fitting in the colder months.

I also picked up Freeman foot scrub and foot lotion to prepare my feet to be summer ready. So far, so good! It leaves my feet soft and relaxing.

At forever21, I got this cute shorts. I like the snaps on the sides.

This was a great find. I never thought Pier 1 imports carries jewelry, but they do! This ring comes in black, smoke, and muted pink. It also adjustable so you can wear it in any finger you wish.

Clinique Haul

I went to Nordstrom and they were having a Clinique bonus time in the counter. It was an ideal time to buy everyday staples. I purchased the Clinique Clarifying Lotion in #3. I have been using this product for 1 year and definitely trust it. I also purchased the Clinique Pore Minimizer- tzone shine control. This is my first time trying it. Have you tried this product before? Let me know.

Along with my purchases, I received the free gift with purchase.
