Holiday Haul

Hey Dolls!

I’m back! My blog was undergoing some much needed TLC. I’m all about getting rid of the old and coming in with the new. As you will see, I  left nothing from my previous page. I said to myself If I’m starting this new look, I’m starting it from scratch. Why not? Any who, It’s almost Christmas and I picked up a few things these last few weeks that I wanted to share with you, hence the name Holiday Haul. Thank you for your patience and for taking the time to read my posts.

Cheers!

Kat Von D Lolita Lip Duo $20

(Left to right: Lolita I and Lolita II)

If you’re a makeup junkie like myself you probably know how amazing Kat Von D’s liquid lipsticks are especially the holy grail that is Lolita I. Let’s get real this lipstick is bomb and everyone should have it, then Ms. Kat Von D decided to play with our little hearts and came out with Lolita II. Yup thats right, the sister to the original. When I heard this of course I said to myself I have to have it, so this lip duo Ms. Kat came up with was great because I got to try Lolita II and stock up on Lolita I. What do I think? I love it, but I don’t love it as much as the original but that just a personal preference because I gravitates towards cooler tones due to my skin tone. In the end, this was a great buy.

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss

( Shade Rule 34)

So I have a love and hate relationship with lipglosses, don’t worry I’ll explain. First, is it me or are lipglosses just not the same anymore. I feel like they aren’t as glossy and thick enough as they were a few years ago. If you’re going to use a lipgloss, people better see it from a mile away. Second, being glossy is great, hair on the mouth? not so much. Don’t you hate it when that happens, especially when you just got your hair done, I can’t deal. Third and last, they run if they’re not thick and then you look like you ate something greasy, not cute. Needless to say, I don’t have a problem with this lipgloss and I love it! It’s the perfect consistency and the perfect nude same as your lips color, which is why I purchased this. Some days I just don’t want to wear lipstick so when I found this, it was a perfect match.  (Swatch below)

Becca Holiday Champagne Glow Palette $34

(From left to right: Pearl, Champagne Pop and Blushed Copper)

This palette is so gorgeous! I love highlighters and not purchasing this wasn’t even an option. Due to my fair skin, I really wanted to try out Pearl because It was a limited edition color. Pearl was so raved about, Becca made it permanent, which is amazing because mixed with Champagne Pop it’s the most perfect highlight. Jaclyn Hill is also my favorite youtube vlogger so purchasing this was also a given. As to blushed copper, I use it to warm up the face as a bronzer and it’s beautiful.  (Swatches below)

 IMG_3557Bite Beauty- Best Bite Rewind $25

(From left to right: Aubergine, Cafe, Coulis and Torte)

Can you believe this set was only $25? Coming from Bite, thats pretty great. These are Matte Creme Lip Crayons, I love them so much because even though they are Matte, they are not drying at all. A regular sized Matte Lip Crayon from Bite retails for $24 each, so can we say deal?! (Swatches below)
