I'm back with another haul of things that I purchased for and from this past weekend and through out the month. I won't ramble lets just get into it.
Let's start with the MAc products which im very excited about. I got two blushes.
On the top is MAC Modern Mandarin blush. It's a satin finish and very very bright as you can see. Reminds me of BH Cosmetics Tulip blush the matte side. Only better. I've always wanted this and I can't wait to use this with a tan. I feel like I'm gonna use this quite a bit in the summer.
On the bottom is MAC Warm Soul Mineralize Blush. I've never had a mineralize blush before from MAC they've just never been my thing. However, if you watch Batalash Beauty particularly Samantha she talked about this constantly until Kat Von D Wish blush took over. So I bought it completely on her recommendation and I must say I've used it twice now and it's so pretty. Very natural and glowy. It's like a tan with a golden sheen to it. Makes you look super healthy and sunkissed. Probably won't be able to wear it when I'm tan but that's ok cause we all need a blush for when we're pale.
On the top is MAC Lightscape Mineralize Skinfinish. Not only is it very pretty in the container it's actually a very unique highlighter in a color that I didn't have. It's hard to tell on the swatch but it's a pearly white/pale pale pink. Super versatile and all around very pretty. Being so light in color though it's a good thing it's kinda sheer cause it makes it work with my skin tone quite nice.
On the bottom is MAC Shaping Powder pro pan in Emphasize. I ordered this for this past weekend's event. It's very very light. Has the smallest amount satin finish and I use it to set the under eye area. I like ABH Banana Powder too but I wanted this for more options.
This is actually a blotting powder. The color is Dark/Deep it's completely matte obviously and I bought it to contour the face. So far I've really liked it.
These two bad boys I got for my kit to take this weekend. One is matte and poreless and the other one is just regular formula of the Maybelline Fit Me foundations but a new shade. I've also been using them to contour underneath u foundation some and really been liking the looks of it. On the swatches the top is 335 and the bottom is 360. The 335 is the Matte and Poreless formula.
I got these glitters from Glitter Injections. They were 6.99 a piece and I absolutely love them. In the swatches from left to right is Angel Kiss, Mystic Butterfly, and Peacock. They're the most unique and prettiest glitters I've ever seen. I've used two of them already and I just absolutely love them.
I got three OCC Stained Glosses on sale at Sephora. The shades on the swatches from left to right is Androgyne, New Wave, and Decadent. I really like these. They are sheer though so definitely need something under them.
The other things I got were:
Ben Nye Final Seal setting spray which is used a lot in stage makeup to set body paint and help sweating along with setting makeup. You need to keep your eyes closed for several seconds after you spray to let it settle and not get in your eye.
RCMA No Color Powder. This is a relatively cheap nothing fancy powder but it doesn't oxidize the foundation and sets the makeup beautifully and you don't look cakey or anything. It's a hidden gem really.
NARs Foundation that I have a whole blog post on including swatches.
Ardell Lashes Wispies. I'd never had this style and you hear so much about them so I bought a pair just to see how it goes. I've not tried them as of yet though.
Finally the last thing I got was L'Oreal New Volume Filler Densifying Gelée. It's to use when you blow out your hair. I used it this weekend I didn't notice any difference but I'm gonna give it another chance here soon and maybe it'll work.
