Hello my loves!
Sorry for my lack of posts, I've had the worst writer's block lately! Every time I'd try to write a new post, my brain just would not cooperate... How have you been?
I have a few weddings coming up to do makeup for and I've only recently starting building my kit up, so I thought it would be fun to show you a collective haul from the past week or so showing everything I've gotten in preparation for these upcoming weddings!
First, I went to CVS & Walgreens:
At CVS, I got some lashes - Revlon 'Defining' lashes pack of 4, a pair of Ardell Demi's, along with Maybelline's The Rocket mascara in waterproof, two shades of Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder (Nude Beige & Creamy Beige) unfortunately Creamy Beige was the darkest shade they had. I also got Rimmel's Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal eyeliner in 001 Black, I mentioned how much I love the nude shade in previous posts so I wanted to try the black one. Lastly, I got NYC's bronzer in Sunny and the Brow Kit in brunette.
CVS's lashes were pretty picked over so I got Kiss's double pack lashes and after hearing Grav3yardgirl from Youtube rave about the Ecotools lashes, I had to grab a pair of those. Also, my Walgreens now carries Elf!!! So excited, so I grabbed another powder brush, one of my favorites.
Next, an order from Coastal Scents... I've never ordered from them before, only BH Cosmetics once... They both had the same palettes I wanted but CS ended up being cheaper so I got:
****If you want me to do a review on any of these - let me know!! :)
The Eclipse 15 Concealer Palette - I love the packaging all of these come in, they are so cute!
It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be.
It has a good color selection, the three shades on the left are pretty interesting. The top is shimmery so I'm assuming it's a cream highlighter. The other two are corrective shades.
I also got the 10 Blush Palette:
There are 5 or 6 shades with some shimmer and the others appear to be matte.
Lastly, I got the 66 Lip Palette, this one really intrigued me because it has some crazy colors in here which would be fun for any fashion shows, photo shoots and would be perfect for halloween:
There are some sparkly shades, metallic, and cream ones as well.
Along with the palettes:
An I love makeup sticker, really cute. Along with a business card and four little sample eyeshadows.
Again, if you want reviews on any of these (or anything else I got) feel free to leave a comment!
Finally, an order from Ulta:
I got the Urban Decay Naked Palette, Naked Basics, De-Slick and All Nighter setting sprays - with those came a free travel 24/7 Glide-On lip pencil in the shade Naked. I also got two Real Technique's Expert Face brushes, Tarte's Clean Slate Poreless face primer, and Essence's gel eyeliner in Midnight In Paris. For the free samples - Jonathan Dirt Texturizing Paste, Bamboo Smooth anti-frizz shampoo, conditioner and Dendi Oil, as well as a Biolage Creme Masque.
All of that and I still don't have everything I need, but this will do for now!
