Catch Up Haul - Part One

Hello, hello, hello! I've been meaning to post some hauls for a while now... but because I've been slacking off, I have to split them up into two parts (mainly because these pictures were already on my computer and I'm too lazy to take pictures of the other products).

Anyway, let's get started...

NARS Boys Don't Cry & Rotonde blushes
When I first heard about the Pierre Hardy collection, I decided to overlook the products (the prices were no good for my wallet). However, when Ms. Lisa from Swatches and Whatnot posted a swatch of Boys Don't Cry on her Instagram... I decided to stop by Sephora the same day and ended up purchasing both blushes. I have no regrets... They're beautiful, pigmented, and blend very nicely. The texture is incredibly smooth like a baby's bottom.

Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal - Nude
I wouldn't say it's waterproof, but it's definitely a nice product for the waterline.

Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya & Wild Watermelon
I like the lip butter line from Revlon, so I couldn't resist when I saw new shades.

Sedona Lace Vortex Professional Makeup Brushes
I bought this set when it was on sale... It's been a while, so I don't remember how much I saved, but it was a pretty good deal. I've been too lazy to wash these brushes, so I haven't had the chance to test them out just yet. The brush belt is handy for travel since it has a zipper.

Part 2 will be up soon. Thanks for stopping by!

{Review} Too Faced La Creme Lipsticks

Why hello there! I hope life is treating you all well. I have so many posts to catch up on, so I decided to start with a review of these Too Faced lipsticks. I apologize for not the lack of entries and not getting back to your comments... I will be sure to get back to you all within the next week. 

(Spice Spice Baby & Cinnamon Kiss)
A rich and creamy lip color infused with moisturizing and strengthening benefits. Indulge lips with luxurious color and super moisturizers including white lotus flower and power peptides. This rich formula comes in abundant shades in four essential color ranges: nudes, spices, pinks, and reds. Edited to only the most fashionable shades, it's impossible to pick just one. 

Spice Spice Baby is a pinky brown.

Cinnamon Kiss is described as a spiced brown, but I see a touch of rose when applied on my lips.

The Good
- beautiful packaging
- comes in a wide array of colors
- great pigmentation
- creamy formula with an easy and smooth application
- balmy smooth texture that doesn't feel heavy on the lips
- super moisturizing

The Bad
- not very long wearing on me (I would say they last maybe 4 hours top)

Overall, these lipsticks are worth the hype! They may not be long lasting, but the pigmentation and texture makes up for it. Not to mention they soothe my lip eczema even on bad days. I highly recommend checking these lipsticks out if you're on the hunt to find great quality lipsticks. 

Have you tried these Too Faced lipsticks? How do you like them?

And that would be it for my review. Thanks so much for stopping by!
