Beauty Haul

“To Live is the rarest thing in the world.
 Most people just exist.”
- Oscar Wilde 

I’ve been doing some serious product shopping throughout this whole month and I think it’s time to share them with you before there’s way to many to fit into one picture. Ok, so some of these products should’ve been in my life a while ago (sigh) but i always talked myself out of buying them. 

 Benefit Porefessional 
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

I absolutely love all three of these! My makeup has been at its best since I got them. I can honestly see a difference in how my makeup looks as a whole and the All Nighter spray keeps my makeup on for hours and hours and hours........

Urban Decay Naked 3
NYX Runway Collection in Haute Model
NYX single shadow in Heat
NYX baked shadow in Mademoiselle

Naked 3? Amazing. The NYX Runway collection has the most gorgeous shimmery shadows that can give a neutral eye an entire new look. NYX single shadows are always so pigmented and these two are no exception.

NYX matte bronzer in Deep
Elf duo blush and bronzer
Tarte blush in Peaceful
Nars Orgasm

The NYX bronzer is now one of my favorites, its super easy to apply and to blend. The Elf duo is part of their holiday gift sets, both the bronzer and the blush are shimmery but are not too overpowering. Tarte’s Peaceful and Nars’ Orgasm are amazing, i can’t explain it, they just are. 

Maybelline MasterKajal coal pencil in Sapphire Twilight
NYX Candy Glitter Liner in French Champagne
Maybelline Lipcolor in Orange Aglow
Maybelline Lipcolor in Glistening Amber
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Rouge Parfait

Maybelline’s coal pencil I found to be perfect to use on the waterline. The glitter liner by NYX is saturated with a good amount of glitter compared to others i’ve tried, this one by far is my favorite. I have yet to try the NYX’s Rouge Parfait, but let me tell you, it looks amazing on my hand. Both Orange Aglow and Glistening Amber are nude lip glosses, perfect for pairing with dramatic eyes.

  2. This is a great haul! I have the Urban Decay eye primer and I agree it makes a whole lot of differences to eye shadows. I really need to try the setting spray, I've read so many amazing reviews on it!
