Catch Up Haul - Part 1.

How long has it been since I've updated a haul? Well, however long ago that was, these were the products that I've accumulated since. Some pictures have different backgrounds because they were taken at different times.

From Sephora:
Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzura Bronzing Powder & Blush
I decided to spoil myself with this product when I saw Temptalia's review (link). It was definitely worth the money and I can honestly say that this is the only product I've been using for blush and bronzer. The powder is finely milled, the color compliments my skin-tone, and the scent is heavenly.

Buxom Big & Healthy Lipstick - Sydney
I'm a sucker for my lips, but better shades and Sydney is exactly that. It isn't exactly long lasting, but it's creamy and nondrying.

Sephora Atomizer
My precious Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume is currently in the atomizer. I have yet to use it, but it's nice to have in my purse just in case.

L'Occitane Hand Cream (150 ml)
I bought this when I was half-way done with the travel-size tube which is long gone and was in my last "Products I've Used Up" post. I keep this at home because it's way too big for my purse, but I use this hand cream all the time. You can see the size difference with the full-size and travel-size tubes. You definitely get more of your money's worth with the full-size version.

From Drugstore & Ulta:
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer
I didn't expect to like it as much as I do, but I use it as a corrector and it's the only corrector I've been reaching for.

Revlon Colorstay Whipped
So maybe I'm a sucker because I wanted to see the hype, but I believe I found my favorite drugstore foundation! I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and so far I can say it photographs well, feels light on the skin, and has decent wear.

Freeman Facial Clay Mask: Mint & Lemon & Avocado and Oatmeal 
I haven't tried Avocado and Oatmeal, but the Mint & Lemon is amazing! My pores were so clean after using this mask... Seriously, for something so amazing and for such a cheap price (I think it's around $4), it's definitely a bargain! Highly recommended!

Essie Nailpolishes - Miss Fancy Pants & The Fall Set (colors: Stylenomics, Don't Sweater It, Skirting the Issue, and Head Mistress)
I'm really cheap when it comes to nail polish (I don't wear them often because I think they're too high maintenance), but when I saw these colors, I couldn't exist! 

And that would be it for part 1, part 2 will be posted sometime next week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Long Time, No See! Plus Today's Haul.

Why hello there! I am not going to apologize for being inactive because it feels like I've been doing a lot of that lately. However, I will say that I've come back from this unannounced hiatus since I now have a working desktop and I have so many things to share/review.

My old beloved Macbook Pro hasn't been working properly and since I'm back in school and everything, it seemed like good (and legitimate) reason to upgrade my computer situation. I've only had this iMac for a day and I'm already in love with it.

Mini Sephora Haul:
Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup - Shade 4.0
Because of my tan, I was in need of a new foundation. I wanted to try something new, so I went for the Naked Skin foundation. I'll be sure to do a review once I feel like I've used it enough.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Beso 
I've been wanting to try out a liquid lipstick from Stila ever since I saw it on the Sephora website. After I swatched all the colors on my hand, Beso seemed like it suited my skin color the most. I probably won't use it too often since it's a true red shade, but it's beautiful nonetheless.

Mini Walgreens Haul:
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains - Precious & Honey
The last thing I needed were more lipsticks, but since they were finally available (they're usually sold out when I'm there), I couldn't pass them up.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Glossybox ~ July, 2012

Hello All! I cannot apologize enough for being so inactive. Life has been super busy and I haven't been able to go online much.

Anyway, here is the package I received from Glossybox a few weeks ago:

The theme of July was Summer Nights.

After a sizzling day in the sun, there is nothing better than a cool summer night. This month's GLOSSYBOX offers you the essentials you'll need to indulge in products that show off your sun kissed skin and hair and enhance sultry eyes. Afterwards, throw on your sexy sandals and dance the night away under the shimmering sunny sky.

Here we go... 

Sebastian | Color Ignite Multi Tone Shampoo & Conditioner
Shampoo: Smart color moisture complex that targets your color-treated strands, to deeply moisturize and restructure hair fibers wherever needed most.

Caswell - Massey | Almond and Aloe Hand & Body Emulsion
 This was an extra that softens and moisturizes dehydrated skin. The pure sweet almond oil will leave your skin feeling like smooth as velvet.

I decided to cancel my subscription to Glossybox. Not because I haven't enjoyed the products, but because I have more than enough products to last me a lifetime. I might resubscribe after I downsize my collection... I'm thinking about holding a huge blogsale!

Thanks for stopping by!
