New! Too Faced Natural Love Collection.

IMAG7233

 

I haven’t purchased a Too Faced palette since the Chocolate Bon Bons palette that I returned the next day. The brand’s recently been so hit or miss with their palettes that I’ve just been very meh about them and whenever there’s a new Too Faced launch I’m all…ok? When I saw this beauty though with thirty shades, my heart skipped a beat. In fact, my heart skipped a couple beats at the entire Natural Love collection and although the palette was on my list, the things that I truly wanted most was one of the new shades of Melted Matte liquid lipstick, and at least two of the three highlighters.

The aim of this collection is natural beauty, everything is supposed make you look gorgeous, but naturally so. On the face of it, it’s a gorgeous collection, but once you get to it…well…

Another Kiko Milano Haul.

IMAG4294_1

 

What can I say? I like the brand. Plus, I knew if I waited patiently some of the things that I wanted from early summer releases would eventually go on sale, and oh baby have they ever! To the tune of over 50% off both the Artist and Lovegrove collections are now on sale. I flirted with the idea of getting a lot more stuff, since over the July 4th weekend, they also had an additional 30% off coupon, but in the end I decided to go ahead and just get the things that I really really wanted, everything else can wait. I also picked up three items from the new Beauty Games collection, there were more items that I wanted from that collection, but I decided to go ahead and get the things that had the highest sell-out probability, I’m not doing a review on those today either, I’ll wait till I get the rest of the items that I want.

ABH Modern Renaissance Palette.

IMAG0380

 

I’ll tell you a little secret, or maybe it’s not such a secret, I routinely get rid of most of my makeup. I get so much stuff that I get overwhelmed and even though I like most of it, there are things that I tend to reach for much more. The things that are just swatched for a blog post and maybe used once, I may sell, or most likely I’ll just pack a couple boxes, take them in to work and leave them for the other ladies to go through. Some things though, I never get rid of. I usually don’t get rid of my LE edition or Holiday items unless I truly hate them. And I never, ever get rid of my ABH palettes. Never. There is absolutely nothing that can get me to part with them.

L’Oreal’s New Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation.

IMAG4196

 

I love the Pro-Matte version of this foundation so much that when I heard glow I was all “hell yeah!”

This was part of my birthday haul, and boy did I ever haul. I did mostly drugstore stuff this year mostly because lately I’ve been getting a lot of really good drugstore stuff. Plus while almost all of the higher end brands are debuting very similar items, the drugstore brands have been quietly innovating and perfecting their formulas to compete, and some dominate. L’Oreal, has become my go too American drugstore brand, very rarely does anything that I purchase fail me, and I’ve been extremely happy with the foundations that I’ve gotten.

So I suppose I was due for a disappointment yeah?

Holiday 2016: Smashbox Light It UP L.A. Lights Palette

IMAG4985_2

 

Oh my god guys! I have such a backlog of products to review for you all. Three weeks ago my work schedule changed and I haven’t been able to write anything since then. Luckily, I was still taking pictures but not writing anything new, so I still have a lot of my vacation haul left to write about, plus a bunch of holiday stuff too. I’m gonna alternate them and maybe by December we can get through all of it, whaddya think? No? Probably not. By the way? If this doesn’t hit the airwaves till after 1? It’s cause I’m writing the night before and I’m hella sleepy so grammatical mistakes abound. And will need to be corrected.

Collective Vacation Haul: Illamasqua Vanitas Rose Gold Collection.

IMAG4494

 

For some reason I don’t see a lot of people reviewing Illamasqua. It’s probably because it’s super expensive and there’s no place to buy in the states. But I think I mentioned before if you buy something from Illamasqua.com and it hits a hundred dollars, (which ain’t hard in the least) you get your order in two days cause they ship it express. I didn’t however, purchase this from the Illamasqua site cause I dithered around so much that Beauty Bay finally got it in stock, and the deal was too good to pass up despite the fact that unless you spend like $400 on BB you’re gonna get your stuff in 13 days the end, unless you pay thirty dollars for express.

But this was too good a deal. The palette is $59 but BB has it for $42. The lipsticks are $30 but BB has them for $21.40, because of that I was only able to get two colours cause the rest were sold out, but the two colours that I got were the ones that I really wanted anyway.

NYX Go-To Palettes.

IMAG0558

 

I for serious wish that NYX would debut all their new stuff at once, you know, to save this princess from having to order like every flippin’ week.

I saw the Go-To Palettes on the site when I went to check my order status, for the last order that I had placed. They look remarkably like the Avant Pop Palettes so at first I didn’t realise that they were new. Like the Avant Pop Palettes, these are $17, but instead of having 12 shadows, you get six, a highlighter, a blush and a bronzer.
