What I Got For Christmas - 2016 Beauty Edition

Happy New Year everyone! I can't believe how fast 2016 flew by but it's been a great year. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday with loved ones. I've seen so many people do this post "What I Got For Christmas" on YouTube so I figured I'd put mine on my blog. Disclaimer: this is not to show off or brag, this is honestly just to show you the new products I got that I'll be testing out for all of you. So please let me know which products you really want reviews on!

Clinique makeup removing balm & Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe:
Brow Wiz was obviously a restock. I literally can't live without it. The Clinique makeup removing balm however was a purchase after I tried a sample of it and fell in love. I saw Casey Holmes talk about it and use it a lot in her videos on YouTube, but I'm more of a makeup removing wipe type of girl. But this changed the game for me.
Dolce Rosa Excelsa perfume: My first ever full size perfume and I LOVE it. This smells SO good! So happy I got this :)
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Snow: I had this in a different shade previously but it was too yellow for my skintone so I'm hoping this is the right shade!
Too Faced liquid lipstick in Sell Out: This was a point perk and the size of this is actually quite generous. I'm hoping the formula is good! Have any of you tried this formula already? Thoughts?
Beautyblender heaven!!: You can never have enough beautyblenders IMO.
Sephora sheet mask collection (6): Sephora sheet masks are inexpensive and effective. I really love these. I would use one everyday if I could!
Another year of Rouge :): This year's Rouge gift was a mini NARS blush, super cute
Nicole Guerierro's Best Damn Lip Mask: I had to see what the hype was about with this lip mask. I will have a full review for all of you coming soon ;)
Tarte Maracuja Neck Treatment: I know, I know - why am I thinking about anti-aging when I'm not even 25 yet? But it's never too early to start taking care of your skin. 2017 is going to be all about skincare for me!
Drunk Elephant AHA skincare set: I received the pink one in a Sephora Playbox one month and fell in love but it's super expensive on it's own so this set made it worth it.
Marc Jacobs mini lipstick set: Marc Jacobs comes out with a mini lipstick set every year, my goal is to get them all so I can eventually have all the lipstick shades in mini form because let's be honest, I never go through a full lipstick!
Sephora Favorites Glow For It: My name was ALL over this when it came out. I love highlighters and looking glowy so this was the perfect set and it comes with so many goodies! This sold out QUICK. Were you able to get your hands on it?
Stila liquid lipstick sets: I missed out on last years sets so I didn't want to miss out again, especially with all these nudes and mauves, YES PLEASE, give. them. to. me (Desi voice)
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer: Holy grail, I will forever repurchase this. This is the first time I got the full size though. I normally get the $18 one that's like a quarter of the size of this. This bad boy should last me all of 2017!
Kylie mini liquid lipstick set: I don't know that any of these shades will look right on me, but we'll see. I'm so hesitant to wear any other color than a nude/pink lol I'm such a wimp.
NARS Velvet Lipglides: These colors are EVERYTHING and everyone on YouTube was talking about the nude one (I believe it's called Stripdown)
HUDA Beauty mini liquid lipstick sets: I'm always afraid to purchase full size liquid lipsticks with a new formula I've never tried before so these mini sets are perfect to test them out. The colors are much darker on my skintone than I would have liked, but still pretty nonetheless.
Becca Rose Quartz highlighter: OK, can I make a confession? This was wayyyyy overpriced on eBay, but I had to have it and it was sold out everywhere! But I mean, look at how pretty it is! So worth it.
Sephora Favorites Most Coveted: These always sell out so quickly because it's such a great deal. I got the one from last year too and I'm so glad I was able to get this one as well. So many great products in here!
Hourglass Palette: Another honest moment here, the packaging got me on this. I'm a sucker for anything gold or marble. The products are beautiful, too, as always with Hourglass, but the packaging was the seller on this.
Lorac Mega Pro 3: I have the first and second so it was only right that I got the third, right? Lol. plus the white and rose gold on this is STUNNING. But Lorac Pro shadows are my favorite. I don't go ANYWHERE without taking them along.
Marc Jacobs mini liquid lipstick set: Another mini lipstick set, yes. More nude lipsticks, yes. Nothing new here haha
MAC blush and highlight: A little background on this gem is the coveted Whisper of Gilt that was limited edition came back for the holidays - and left again. I believe this was from Nordstrom. I purchased both this one and the one with Whisper of Gilt and received a confirmation email and everything; however a week later I got an email from Nordstrom stating Whisper of Gilt wasn't in stock or available any longer - EVEN THOUGH I got the confirmation email. I was pretty upset originally but then realized it would've probably been too dark for my skintone anyway and this one was the perfect champagne color for me.
Mini Too Faced Candlelight Glow: I've wanted this for the longest time but didn't know if it was worth it. This is actually a mini size that I got as a point perk! I can't wait to try it.

What goodies did you get for Christmas?!

What I Got For Christmas: Haul

Christmas is such a beautiful time of the year. Merry (late) Christmas to all of those that celebrate! I hope you had a wonderful one. I know many people celebrate other holidays, but I personally celebrate Christmas so I wanted to share with you my gifts. Please note these have been accumulated from the end of August until now so I've probably posted about these prior in hauls and such but for those of you that keep up with me, you know that I take pictures to post for all of you (sometimes swatch) and then I put them away for Christmas. That means no touching them again. The torture is reaaaaall, but it's so satisfying seeing everything accumulate and pile up. Because it's only a day after Christmas, I haven't tested many of these items out. If you'd like reviews on specific products, leave a comment below :) Disclaimer: this is not to brag. I personally like seeing hauls and what other people get so I'm sure there are others out there who feel the same. Please know I am well aware how truly blessed I am and I don't take it for granted one bit. 

I know a lot of people ask for purses and jewelry, but I have way more than enough handbags and jewelry and truthfully I think it's a bit overrated. Makeup is my passion and I love sharing with all of you so that's what I asked for.
