I recently went to MAC, Ulta, Target and Rite Aide; thus, I have a haul! This time I made it a point to actually film it, but only after a very slimy and sweaty gym session. Don’t ask.
MAC Lipsticks and Lip Liners
The first couple of items I picked up were MAC lipsticks and lip liners. These are from left to right: Modesty, Twig, Soar, Whirl and Velvet Teddy. Soar and Velvet Teddy were the main products I had in mind as I wanted to test out the Kylie Jenner Lip look (as seen here and here). The other shades were ones that naturally captured my eye, and are very reminiscent of almost every other shade in my collection. I’m a creature of habit.
Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral 02 Palette
This Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral 02 palette was $19 at Target. I can’t find it on the website, so I’m not sure if it’s being discontinued or if it’s simply sold out. I’d imagine that it’s just sold out with the hype surround matte neutral colors lately. I first heard about this palette from Lorraine of The Current Custom in this video. While I wasn’t necessarily on the hunt for this palette, I did fall in love when I saw it in store,
If matte shades are not your thing, I have been hearing so many great things about the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche La Palette in 01 Nude. I had both palettes in my hand, but ended up choosing the Sonia Kashuk one as it was more unique to my collection.
Julie G Nail Polishes
How adorable are these Julie G nail polishes? They are absolutely perfect for spring! From left to right, the colors are: Fairytale, 9 to 5, Birthday Suit and Shoe-a-Holic. I have been obsessing all week! Rite Aide was having a buy one, get one half off sale. As I said in the video– I only meant to pick up Fairytale, but absolutely could not pass up the great deal. These polishes are also my absolutely favorite as they do not chip and are rich in pigmentation.
And, of course, swatches! From the top, going left to right: MAC’s Twig, Velvet Teddy and Modesty. Under that are Soar, Whirl and my IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner. Below that are swatches of every color in the Sonia Kashuk palette.
Now that my mini-vacation has come to an end, so has my impulse spending on makeup.
