makeup haul

Bonjour! I have only really been into makeup for the past four years or so, and not consistently. I go through phases where I barely wear any, and there are times when I am completely obsessed with it. Right now is one of those times when I am OBSESSED. I have oily skin and have been struggling to find a few things to make my face look less greasy in the this Southern California heat. As I’ve been looking for good bases, I’ve also picked up a few fun things. Here they are:

IMG_5989Maybelline New York Chic Naturals Quad in Designerer Chocolate, ELF Flawless Eye Shadow Quad in Happy Hour, Revlon Colorstay Quad in Brazen, ELF Blending Eye Brush, ELF Eyeshadow Brush. All bought at GROCERY OUTLET.


Wet N Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow 8 pan in Flirting at the After Party, NYC Individual Eyes in All Eyes on Us. Both bought at SPRING VALLEY SWAP MEET.

IMG_5987Beauty Treats Matte Blush Palette. Bought at SPRING VALLEY SWAP MEET.

IMG_5991IMG_5986Maybelling Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm Limited Edition in Pop of Pink. Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Tweed-Le Dee. Red Mink Professional Quality Blending Sponge (generic beauty blender). All bought at SPRING VALLEY SWAP MEET.

Plus this from Ulta:

2272645Benefit Cosmetics Online Only Beauty Score. 10 tiny little sample sizes of some of their best sellers. (This could be awesome, but it’s just ok because most makeup is designed for fair skinned folks).

Plus this from Sephora:

s1634898-main-heroSephora Favorites Give me Some Lip. 5 sample size and one full size high end lip products. Because I don’t own any high end lippies and would like to try them out and carry them around to feel fancier than I actually am. This should be coming in the mail this week.

Plus I ordered some things from a friend selling Avon that came up to about $22 but I don’t remember what it was now. I think maybe an eyebrow kit, a pink eyeshadow base and maybe two eyeliners but who knows? It’ll be a surprise.

And then I signed up for IPSY. You get 4-5 beauty products in a cute little makeup bag sent to you every month for $10. Haven’t received my first glam bag yet, but hopefully it’ll be cool and I’ll just get by on that for a long while. Trying to use up all the things I already have. I’ll let you know how that goes in another post.

IMG_5983Oh yeah I got my hair done yesterday in tiny little box braids.

You are beautiful and I love you. Do you wear makeup? What makes you feel pretty?
