Collective Haul-I came, I spent, I hauled!

Warning: Picture heavy post

I have been doing a bit of shopping lately and I picked up a few things from MAC, Lancome, Target, Ulta, Sally's Beauty Supply, and the drugstore.

So this is what I picked up:

From left to right clockwise we have:

  1. Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof eyeliner in Black Party
  2. MAC lipsticks in Thrills and Pink Nouveau

  3. MAC blush in Honour

  4. L'oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base (primer)

  5. MAC Brushes 224, 129, & 116
  6. Sonia Kashuk small multi-purpose powder brush
  7. China Glaze nail polishes in V, Awakening, and II

  8. Eco Tools retractable kabuki brush
  9. Lancome Hypnose mascara in black

Lipsticks: Pink Nouveau (top), Thrills (bottom)

Pink Nouveau is from MAC's permanent collection. It is a true pink color. I do not wear it that bright, I put a light coat on with a pink lip gloss layered on top. Thrills is from MAC's To The Beach Collection. It is a rosy coral with gold shimmer. It is my favorite summer color for the moment!

Honour blush

Honour is also from MAC's permanent line. It is a golden beige with gold pearl. I use it as a highlighter as it is far too light to use as a blush on my skin tone.

Left to right: V, Awakening, II

V is a orangey (is that even a word?) coral and has fast become my summer pedicure color. Awakening is a raspberry color with golden iridescence. II is a sheer shimmery nude color.

From bottom to top: Sonia Kashuk brush, MAC 224, MAC 129, MAC 116, kabuki

Yes, I picked up a second MAC 224 brush as I realized that I needed one for blending and one for concealer. The 129 is a powder and blush brush and the 116 is a dense blush brush. The Sonia Kashuk brush, available at Target, is great for the crease and also a great at applying powder underneath the eyes. The kabuki brush, also available at Target, is a travel kabuki that retracts so it fits perfect into my makeup bag.

Well you see what I've been up to. What have you purchased lately?

  1. I have not been on my makeup game! I always think about buying it when I'm applying makeup for an event and I don't have the exact color that I need. I need to do better...
