CCO Haul!

Hi everyone! So this past weekend, I went to the CCO to check out some MAC eyeshadows, because I only have a couple of them, and I really wanted some more! So here are some pictures of what I picked up:
 Cut to fit. 
 Night manoeuves. 
 Meet the Fleet.
and Chamomile. (Not sure what happened to the lighting in this picture.) 
 And I also picked up a pigment in Universal Mix. I don't understand why this pigment gets such a bad rap on MUA. I really loved the color! I think it's perfect for highlighting, and for the inner corner of your eyes. 
Here are the swatches from left to right: Cut to fit, Night Manoeuvres, Meet the fleet, Sorcery, Chamomile, and universal mix. 
 This is me trying to get a better picture of universal mix. Haha, fail! 
And this week, I got my package from Kathy! I bought the MAC venomous villains mineralized eyeshadows from her! Thanks for the MAC eyeshadows Kathy! And thanks for the extras! I will be sending you something real soon! :)
 Left to right: She who dares, my dark magic. 
 Look how big these eyeshadows are compared to regular mineralized eyeshadows! Left to right: She who dares, Gilt by Association. 
 This is how they look when swatched. 
I decided that I wouldn't spend any more money on makeup until IMATS. This will help me save up money for buying makeup at IMATS. I've always wanted to try the OCC lip tars, so this year, I'm going to go to IMATS, and purchase a lot of makeup! Haha. Anyone wants to try this makeup ban with me? :)

Hello Kitty brush set from Sephora

Hi everyone! So I went to the mall today, to see if Sephora had the Hello Kitty collection, and they had it. But it seemed as if they didn't have everything. I really wanted to get the eyeliner pencils, but they didn't have them at my local Sephora. So instead, I splurged and bought the Hello Kitty brush set. I must say, it is rather disappointing. I honestly thought the brushes would be softer than my sigma brushes, or even my ELF brushes, but they aren't. And the fact that the hairs look like they are everywhere is very disappointing as well. I'm not sure if I want to return this, and get a refund, or keep it. It does look like a nice accessory on my makeup counter. 
$49 at

What do you think? Should I keep it, or return it?

(By the way, sorry about the crappy lighting, still trying to get used to my light box!)

Another Haul!!!

Hi everyone! So today, I have another haul! I know, again??!! Well I love buying products! What can I say? I'm a crazy shopper! 

The first thing I picked up Saturday was Maybelline Fit me! foundations! These are amazing, and I'm going to be doing a review on these very soon! Not sure if you can tell if 230 is a little more yellow toned, and 235 is a little bit more brown toned. These are only available at Walmart, as far as I know. I went to CVS, and they don't have them right now. I'm assuming that's why they are having the whole 50-75% off sale, to make room for more new items. 
Totally loving this foundation! Please, go check out walmart if you want to purchase these foundations! Picture taken without flash. 
Another item, I picked up while at walmart, was the equate eye makeup remover. They only had this one, not the one I've been using. This one is comparable to the Loreal eye makeup remover.

I don't know if you can tell, but the newer version is smaller than the old one! I don't know, if it's because I bought the one on the right at a different walmart, or whatever, but it's a completely different formula! The one on the right, you have to shake it up, to get the formula to clean your eye area, while the one on the left, is just regular. 
Another item I picked up from Walmart, are these St. Ives skincare items! I picked up the apricot scrub, and  the makeup remover and facial cleanser. I debated if I wanted to pick up the green tea cleanser and scrub, but then I saw that it has salicylic acid in it, and I decided against it. I am allergic to salicylic acid. The apricot scrub has 2% in it, but I only use it every other day, so it doesn't cause my face to get super red.

I picked up 3 candles from walmart too! :) I recently just started burning candles, at the end of last year, and I love the smell they give off. I bought lavender, sweet pea, and fresh cotton! I started burning lavender on sunday, and it's still burning! 
 I also picked up a lavender room spray! It smells so amazing! 

I went to the MAC store today, but they were so busy, that I couldn't ask the sales people any questions! So then afterwards, I went to nordstrom, and I asked them if they still had the Fix+, and they did! YAY! By the way, the MAC store at my mall didn't have any more of this fix+. 

 Are you seeing a pattern? I've loving anything lavender! Haha! 

And I went to the body shop, and I picked up the tea tree travel set! I wanted to try out some of their products, before purchasing the full sized items! I really loved a couple of the products I picked up at the end of 2009, that I had to pick up more of their products! 
 Damn plastic inside of the makeup bag was so hard to take out, I basically put a dent in it! 
And this is what the mini sized items look like! So far, I've tried all the tea tree items, and I really do love it! I will be doing a review on these as well! :) 
Anyway, so that's my haul! I did pick up a MAC foundation, but since there are probably tons of pictures of foundations, I didn't want to take a picture, and I'm lazy!

Tomorrow, I'm going to nordstrom to check out the peacocky collection! (It already released on MAC's website, and on!) Is anyone interested in this collection? What are you going to pick up, if you are going? :)

My second haul from CVS! And my gift card giveaway winner! :)

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a good new years eve! I went clubbing with a couple of our friends, but it was kind of crappy, because we were suppose to be on guest list, but we ended up not being on guest list. Long story short, my boyfriend ended up paying $160 dollars for two of us. So that was the crappy part. But at least we got to celebrate in style!

My makeup from NYE! I did my own makeup from my tutorial, but I changed a couple things about it. If any of you girls want to see how I did it, just let me know! :) 
Anyway, so I went back to CVS yesterday! Because I didn't realize that some of the Rimmel London lipsticks were on sale. So I picked up a ton of them today! I basically went to 3 different CVS's because there are 3 located in my area, and I wanted to see what else I could pick up! 

I also picked up a couple Revlon lipsticks as well! I basically got backups of almost everything! Because they were so cheap, and I hate it when I buy something and they discontinue it! So of course, I picked up a lot of backups! (I hate buying cosmetics from ebay)

From left to right: Air Fairy, Pink blush, Pink champagne, and passion. (I'm really loving pink blush and air fairy together on my lips! It's the perfect nude pink!)
Pink champagne, and passion up close. 
 Air fairy, and pink blush up close. 
Swatched from left to right: Air Fairy, Pink blush, Pink champagne, and passion. 

I also picked up Rimmel's spotlight beige. It looks like the perfect dark nude color! 
 Up close and personal! 
 I also picked up one of Revlon's matte lipsticks in mauve it over! The packaging looks really nice! 
 Up close. 
 And then I picked up two of Revlon's Colorburst lipsticks! 
Left to right: Liliac and Mauve. 

 And since I've never tried any of Revlon's pearl lipsticks, I only picked up one of twinkled pink. It looks nice, but let's see how it does when applied to my lips. 

 And of course I had no idea that firecracker was on sale! So I had to pick up one of these babies as well! Since I almost have the entire collection, except for pink pop! That's next on my list! :) 

 When I was there, I also picked up a powder. Because as much as I love my P&J powder, it has shimmer, and sometimes, I feel like I don't want shimmer, and sparkle, so I think this powder would be great for my face. They also had one with shimmer, but since I have P&J's already, I didn't see it necessary to pick up one of those. 
 On the back. The only problem, I have with the almay powder, is the bulkiness of the packaging. I wish it were smaller. I didn't realize that I couldn't take the powder out of the box! 
 I also picked up a sally hansen cream blush, for those days, that I want to apply a darker color to my cheeks/lips! 
 Back of the packaging. 
When swatched on my arm. It's actually a lot prettier than the picture below! It's a nice dark pink. I don't know why, but my camera makes the blush look brown! :(
I was only able to pick up only one of Rimmel's lipsticks in Pink champagne, there were no other ones left. That makes me kind of sad. :( But it's okay, because I did pick up 5 of Pink blush! I also picked up 3 Air Fairy, and 2 extras of spotlight beige! 

From Revlon, I only picked up one backup, and that was Mauve it over, and the only reason I picked up an extra of that one, was because I hadn't realized I had already bought it from another CVS. Yes, I can get a little makeup crazy! 

Anyway, so what you girls have been waiting for, for the past 3 weeks! (Is it 3 weeks?? I can't remember!!!) My giveaway winner for a giftcard of their choice! So I basically had 158 unique entries, basically from tweeting, to blogging, to facebook! So I went to, and the winner is (drum roll please!):

So yay to fruity lashes! I will be emailing you shortly! :) If you didn't win this time around, don't fret, I will be having another giveaway in the next couple of days!
