The New Victoria Secret Makeup Haul

Umm...this looks a little scary, but I hauled it over three different occasions. lol not that that justifies the insanity, but anyway. Hope this helps some one trying to decide on what to order.
My favs so far are the new glosses and the sheer gloss sticks. Great pigmentation and it's very non sticky. My least favorites are the lip liners. Eww they go on so dry :( The eyeshadow quad wasn't too impressive either, One color was flaky, One was pretty much invisible. The other two were pretty so I ended up buying the quad anyway.

From left to right are the Victoria secret sheer gloss sticks in shy, exposed and only you. Perfect lipstick in Scrumptious, and Dusk, lip liner in Ginger Spice and Nude
Lip Lacquer in Strip and True, Lip Gloss in Intimate, Yearning, Blush and Wet.
Victoria Secret Quad in Sultry, Lustre eyeshadow in Champagne and Beloved.

Eyes Lips FAce studio haul

I love how affordable this brand is. And guess what, their products are great. I'm loving their studio collection blushes ! The studio collection packaging reminds me of Nars, The shadows can be pigmented, but they are not as highly pressed as Nars and can be flaky when picking up product so do flick off that brush. The translucent powder has a pinky undertone and is very light.
From left to right is the ELF translucent mattifying powder, Elf Blushes in Candid Coral, Tickled Pink, and Blushing Rose

Tarte Friends and Family Haul !

I love Tarte, I love how they combine their naturally derived 5 antioxidant complex in all their products. I also love how light their products are and how effortlessly gorgeous they make me feel. So here is my latest haul. The Circle Defense is salmon color and lightweight, But it does help to brighten the eye area. I am loving their primer, Not so much for their priming ability but because it does firm the lid, I'm going to use it as a night treatment haha! And as most of you know by now I have an obsession with lip wear, so I'll probably be collecting more of their 24/7s lip sheers soon. They gave me a free sugar daddy glistening powder cool no?
Below from left to right is 24/7 lip sheers in Saturday and Tuesday, Lifted natural eye primer with Firmitol, provocateur pressed mineral powder in light with spf 8, circle defense under eye concealer in light.

Clinique Buttershine Lipsticks

I am definitely not a Clinique lover, But I do have some respect for the lipwear and their new halo like Super Balanced Powder Foundation ( did you see all those colors and the silky texture? ) Anyway, I do love Clinique Buttershines, they remind me a little bit of Dior but for way less. I bought four of them and they gave me a goodie bag yay!

From left to right is Delovely, Pink Toffee, Brandy Apple, Baby Baby, ( from the free stuff) long last lipstick in Blushing Nude, Tenderheart long last glosswear, and Rosy Blush cream stick blush.

Benefit Lippie haulage

I love benefit lipsticks. They are so moisturizing with a great selection of natural colors for great everyday wear. Only con is that they are not long lasting. :(
Here is my latest haul
From Bottom to top is Finders keepers, Candy Store, Liar Lips, Label Lover, Fame Game

My latest Mac Haul.

Well this is actually the post for three separate hauls, but like I said I'm really behind on posts :(
Some from the Make up Arts collection, some from the Creative Craft collection and some just for fun :)

Hold that pose, Madly Creative, Made with love, Fabby, Fresh Moroccan and Angel.

Mineralize Skin finish natural in medium, Mac Notoriety quad
Mac Natural flare mineralize eyeshadow quad ( OMG I Loooove the pigmentation in these)

Goodies from Sephora!

Oof. I'm so backed up in posts it's not even funny. Not having a camera sucks badly. I'm borrowing my husbands camera so I can put up some posts.

Here is my latest Sephora haul.

I bought the new Stila Barbie palette and I'm so happy. It's an insane deal at $28. Yes the pans are the same size as the full color pans but it doesn't matter for me since I rarely hit pan in my shadows. (seriously...) Anyway.
I also passed by the Urban Decay section and fell in love. My goodness they were working hard making a lovely collection. I only bought the surreal skin cream to powder foundation in nirvana ( I'm going to say my conbination skin didn't like it to much. By the end of the day my oil nose seems to wash it out and I'm left with weird gaps by the side of my nose. but overall I liked the texture and the light to medium coverage it offers) and the naked lipstick ( :( I hate the smell but love the color) and the Ink for eyes cream liner in zero. ( I love this liner a lot especially since it comes with it's own little brush inside). But I'm sure I'll be getting their primer for face, lips and eyes set soon (only $65 ah~mazing) as well as the wallflower lip liner and confesson lipstick. Sigh..but I'm also lemming the book of shadows II and the superstash of liners and the apocalyptic nail kit so those might win out first. But either way you'll know :)
Above from top to bottom is Lorac Front of the line Pro Liner in black, Urban Decay Naked lipstick and Nars Fast ride lipstick.
Above from Left to Right is Nars Duo in Silk Road, Nars Single in Mekong, and the Urban Decay Ink for eyes in Zero.
Anyway, I got some goodies from Nars as well. I bought their lipstick in fast ride, their eyeshadow duo in silk road and their eyeshadow single in Mekong. I got a great Lorac liner, it's waterproof and amazing. It's called front of the line pro they sell it in black and brown. It gives a sharp intense non budging line and it's easy to go thin or thick.I also got a set of travel brushes from Sephora. $32 these brushes are so soft and they work really well. I'm so in love :)
