Mini Holiday Haul

Holiday shopping already? YES girl, because I've learned my lesson. If I don't pick up the limited edition sets when they come out and wait til November/December, they'll be GONE. And I'm not trying to pay double the price on eBay, ya feel me?! So I've been snatching up the holiday sets that I've had my eyes on and I am sooo thankful I was able to be dear lawwwdd these sets are beautyyyyyful. Here's what I've hauled so far because TRUST ME, it's only September and there is way more to come! :)
 
Tarte Bling It On Blush Palette
This retails for $44 at Sephora and is worth every stinkin' penny! The Tarte blush formula is just amazing. They come out with a blush palette every year and since last year, I made it a tradition to pick it up each year.
 
Carli Bybel x BH Cosmetics Palette
This was a limited edition palette that comes with 10 eyeshadows and 4 highlighters. It retails for $12.50! An amazing steal! It is sold out at the moment but rumor has it, Carli wants to bring it back because she wants everyone that wants one to get one. How sweet?!
Laura G Nail Polish Set
@laurag_123 on Instagram came out with her own line of nail polishes. This set retails for $48. She also has 2 separate sets that has just 4 polishes that I believe is only $24 which is amazing considering these actually cost $14 a piece! So I had to get them mainly because of the nude and the mauve color but ugh they're all stunning. She is also coming out with a matte top coat that I can't wait to get my hands on.
Becca Glow On The Go Set and Becca AfterGlow PaletteI purchased both of these off of the Ulta website. The Glow On The Go Set retails for just $20! So for those of you that have been dying to try the most loved highlighter out there, Opal, now is your chance without spending the big bucks for the full size. The AfterGlow palette retails for $39.50 which is not bad for all the shades you get. You get 5 shades: 3 highlighters and 2 blushes (Moonstone, Rose Gold, Topaz, Wild Honey, and Flowerchild). And the packaging is just stunnninnngg!
 
 
 
Too Faced Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks and La Crème Lipstick SetI always love love loveeeee Too Faced packaging, especially for the holidays because they always do it big. But I had to pick up the Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks because I really wanted to try their blushes. This retails for $36 and both the melted lipsticks and blushes are travel size. The blushes are suuuper mini but they're adorable. This set includes melted lipstick in Fig, Peony, and Nude and blushes in Your Love is King, Justify My Love, and Love Hangover. The La Crème lipstick set retails for $29 which is a steal because one of their lipsticks costs $21 and you're getting 3 FULL SIZE lipsticks plus an adorable bag. The shades include Nude Beach, Taffy, and limited to this set WHAM!.



Another super cute thing about the Melted Kisses and Sweet Cheeks set is that you can potentially break them into 3 sets and give them as gifts to one of your makeup loving friends. But as the packaging says, "None for you, ALL for ME!" Haha.
 
And last but not least, this baby just released on Ulta's website for Platinum members and I definitely had to scoop this up before it was gone. I purchased the Lorac Mega Pro palette from last year and it is my FAVORITE palette ever. I have the Lorac Pro 1, Lorac Pro 2, the Mega Pro and now I'm adding this one to my collection.

Mini Haul

I've sadly been on a "no-buy" for quite some time. Unless I run out of something or find a REALLY good sale, I've been passing on A LOT of amazing makeup and it's been killing me inside lol. About a week ago, I was informed that Colourpop had a sale on their Minx Society eyeshadow quad. Instead of it being $20 it was FREE. Yes, free! The only thing I paid for was shipping which was $5. The sale was only up for a very short amount of time and I'm not sure whether it was a glitch in their system or just a flash sale that wasn't announced, but I'm extremely glad I was told about it! I already have 6 of Colourpop eyeshadows and a full review on them here if you're interested. Sadly I don't have any of their lippie stix or blushes yet but I have a whole wish list of them soon to come. 

They always put a cute and witty hand written note in the package which I love because it's so personal. 


This is what the outside packaging of the quad looks like. It has a very faint outline of NYC which is beautiful, yet simple detail. 


This is what the quad box looks like when you open it. It looks like it could be a palette, but when you open the box it is four individual pans. 


From left to right: Girly, On The Rocks, Get Lucky, and Roulette



The cap is sleek and white with a clear center so you are able to see the color. It also has the logo that is almost holographic. 
 

Girly is described as "a creamy vanilla with a flash of pink and duo chrome finish"

 
On The Rocks is described as "vibrant, true bronze with gold and violet glitter"
 
Get Lucky is described as "intense ultra-metallic, liquid-like true gold". I have this shade already, but on New Years Eve it fell off of my vanity and smashed. I was able to smash it back together, though because of the texture of these shadows. But having a new one is great! 

 
Roulette is described as a "true matte black". This is the first matte shade I own from them so I'm anxious to see how well it applies to the eyes. 



I will be posting swatches a little bit later :)

I also picked up some nail polish because I needed more Spring colors. I typically get mine from Five Below, but only the Fresh Paint nail polish. The formula is so opaque and they always have beautiful colors. On top of that, they are 3 for $5! Can't beat that price.

Mini Haul: Ulta

I went to Ulta today and picked up a few things! I can't wait to try these out and let you all know what I think about them. I've heard such great reviews on the Maybelline FIT Me Matte & Poreless and the Smashbox Primer. But why am I so pale ?! I literally had to get the second lightest color in the foundation, surprisingly I didn't have to get the lightest! #whitegirlproblems. Then I got the Maybelline FIT Me concealer in Light and it is too dark for me so I'll have to exchange that for the Fair one. I also picked up the green Master Prime primer which is for redness because the only other one they had in stock was the pink one which is for illuminating. I wanted the smoothing one which is in the black and white packaging but it was out of stock. What are your thoughts on these products?

Itty Bitty Mini Haul

LI have been on the hunt for Milani products, specifically for their rose blushes for the past few months now and I couldn't find a drugstore near me that carried the brand! Finally I checked out a CVS and thank the lawdddd I spotted them. There weren't many left so I'm glad I got what I did! I'm not really a fan of corals, so I didn't get the one in Coral Cove, but the two I got were Romantic Rose (left) and Tea Rose (right).  Romantic Rose is more of a neutral, muted pinkish nude and Tea Rose is like the perfect pink blush. They were on sale for buy one get one 50% off and I believe they were around $8 a piece. I kind of want to go back and get the foiled cream eyeshadows *insert monkey emoji covering his eyes*

ULTAmate Goodies: Mini Haul

I love coming home to packages and I came home to my Ulta package yesterday!

I bought the Miss Manga mascara because I've been hearing so many good things about it.

I also bought the L'Oreal Total Repair Damage Erasing Balm because I've heard wonderful things about that product as well. I tried that last night and left it in for the directed 5 minutes, once I rinsed it out I already noticed a difference in my hair. My hair is so soft now and it smells good too. I definitely recommend it for anyone with dry or damaged hair.

The orange bottle is a keratin spray from Sally Hershberger that was referred to me that I have yet to try. It claims to help with dry hair, though.

Lastly are the three face masks by Freeman. I love their face masks. The first one I ever tried was the charcoal & black sugar and it worked great for my skin, but I wanted to try a peeling mask, so I bought the cucumber and the pomegranate peel-offs.
If you have sensitive skin, I wouldn't suggest the charcoal mask because it is a bit rough on the skin. I tried the cucumber mask last night and it smells just like cucumber and has a very thick consistency. After putting it on my face and letting it sit for about 8 minutes (the directed time is 5-10 minutes), I peeled it off and my skin felt so soft and smooth! I would definitely buy this product again especially for $3.99! I was buying individual face masks at $1.99 each for a one time use, for $2.00 more I would rather pick this gem up for multiple uses!

Thank you beauties for viewing. I've got more coming your way, so stay tuned!
