[[.M.A.C. Cham Pale Swatches.]]

I just went into the nearest MAC counter in Macys to buy my mother a belated Christmas present and since it was a Macys I would have had to purchase a Macys giftcard... I would rather her go to a real MAC store with people that know what they are talking about. Anyhow, I wanted to look at the new collections that were released a couple days ago... Cham Pale and Stylishly Yours. I switched all four paint pots (Vintage selection, chilled on ice, let me pop and dangerous cuvee), arranged in that order in the pictures. They are all super shimmer and very light. I also swatched the 4 lipgelees. These are insanely shimmer and have wonderful duochromes. I had them written down but I accidently deleted the names, but they were all pale gold colors with different color duochromes. There is one that has a purple duochrome, so beautiful!! I didn't pick up anything because I want to buy some boots! I also switched two of the Stylishly yours lipsticks in neon Orange and something new. Although, I don't own girl about town, I feel like something new is very close. Oh, there is also an upcoming shoe haul post! Well, thats my short post on the MAC collections... Take a look, you will definitely find sometimes you like.

[[.Snob Reviews: L'Oreal Voluminous, Starry Eyeliner Gel & CoverGirl Lippies.]]

I picked up L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black. I was in CVS and saw a cart in the front of the store filled with clearance items. I was digging and I found this at the very bottom!! It was marked down to $2! $2!!! It retails for around $7-$8! Good Bargain. I really like this mascara. It doesn't clump up at all. I applied 2 coats and there were no clumps what so ever. It lengthens and separates. It is super black and not a charcoal black like other mascaras. I find no cons with this product. The brush is very thick and full but its precise enough to get all the little lashes on top, as well as on the bottom. This is becoming my h.g. mascara.

I stopped by Ross a few days ago... I always stop by the beauty section after getting an amazing cream (review coming soon). Anyway, I said a cardboard pop-up display that was broken and rundown with the name of Starry on it. I recognized the brand from going to beauty supply stores, cherryculture.com, etc. I took a look and there was only one box left, I took a look at it and decided to purchase. It came with a synthetic brush for lining. I got it home and did my makeup as usual. This is the first time that I have used gel eyeliner. First thing that I realized that I liked the ease of being carefree with using my liner brush, let me explain more. With traditional liquid liner, I would have to super duper careful to be extra steady with my hand to avoid accidents. Also, it was easier lining and not being worried about getting liner on my lashes. That is one of my pet peeves when it comes to makeup. Oh! I forgot! The price! $2.49! Wow!

Alright, let me talk about these lashes. These lashes looked sick and I have seen them over and over but never bought them. I went out on a whim and bought them a couple weeks ago. I rushed home to open the package and the lash band was very thick and stiff... BOOO!!!! Anyway, they were $1.99. Who can beat that?? Those lippies are by Covergirl. The swatches are below.
These lipsticks are very sheer. Although they are sheer, they lay down just enough color on my lips. I love them along with my MAC dazzleglasses.
They were $2 each.
Well, that's it!! Hope you guys enjoyed my post!

[[.M.A.C. Haul.]]

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased 3 dazzleglasses on the Livejournal page for M.A.C. Cosmetics! I paid $18 (including shipping) for all three!! What a deal! It was shipped really quickly and efficiently.

These are my first dazzleglasses! These are excellent for adding a little sparkle to a boring nude lip or sheering out a harsh lippie.

Check these out!!

[[.My Huge Wet n Wild Haul!!.]]

So, I have hauled most of the new Wet n Wild products in the past month or two. I got most of the most palettes. I just picked up the Lust and Pride palettes for $2.59 each, at Walgreens. Well, everything I picked was mostly on sale, that why my hauls were so sporadic. I got everything else for under $2.I really like the palettes. The colors are pigmented and can be combined interchangably. I know there are plenty of bloggers that have already posted swatches of the palettes, so I have save your pretty eyes the time!
The blushes are smooth and pigmented. Pearlescent Pink has a little bit of shimmer, but it still is smooth. Heather silk is a great color on my NW45 (mineralized satinfinish foundation). It gives just the right amount of color on my cheeks. Oh, and right after I opened Heather silk, I dropped it. :( I repressed it...
The lipsticks are very pigmented and they are a matte finish. These are a little much on my lips, personally. I usually put a little on and sheer them down with a gloss.
They are very pretty. And I got them for $1.50 each!

I also picked up the Arch Envy brow pencil. It is a pencil with a waxy feel, that puts down just enough color, without being too harsh as traditional brow pencil and comes with a wax pencil on the other side. Lol, you have seen my eyebrows (they get cray-cray, like xppinkx says) and this lays the hair down nicely.

All in all, I am very happy with this massive purchase! Pigmentation, price point and value are A++! I would definitely recommend these products! Wet n Wild is definitely stepping their game up! Their nail polishes are amazing also.

[.Ben Nye Online Haul!.]

My package finally arrived! After two long weeks of waiting, it's finally here. I ordered some Ben Nye products from BattsAvl.com. Before I ordered, I wanted to do some research on it... I looked at PurseBuzz's site for her review and swatches. I was instantly hooked. And just for the pigment alone, there was way more product and value compared to M.A.C. 8 grams for $7.20! What a steal anyway... Look at all the pretty pictures...
I am really happy with my purchase! I did a look with cherry red but I didn't have a chance to take a picture. :( Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my post. Talk to you guys later!

Both amazing fruity and dark (?) scents. And it has an amazing shimmer to it. I can't wait to recieve my package... I have been waiting for approximately a week for it. It will be arriving here on monday. Oh yeah, I got a Wet n Wild palette in Greed when walgreens was having their 50% off sale. Then, there was a dollar off coupon. So I got it for only $1.99. And picked up the neutrogena shipe sheets at big lots for only $.70. What a deal! So, I scoped out the new holiday palettes and they're very pretty... Although, I think i only wany snow sprite (?)

[[.Haul Time: Dollar Tree & Dollar Store!.]]

Wow, I totally forgot to take a collective picture but will update later. Anywho, I went to the Dollar Tree 2x today because I had to pick up various items. I ended up picking up N.Y.C.'s Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder (2) and Almays Pure Blends Mascara (2). I bought this because I want to use the darker shade to contour and have heard wonderful things about this... This is Bronze Mist #718
I bought the mascara earlier in the day and I completely fell in the love with it. It is 97.5%natural, what is absolutely wonderful. The formula is very light. This mascara is the sh*t! I freakin' love it. It so amazing!! Best mascara I have tried next to my M.A.C. Dazzlelash. And at a freakin' dollar! I got to go back to get about 2 more. The brush is cool. It has like a comb and two sides and 2 rows of fibers just like a reg mascara... if that makes sense? Anywho, it separates and covers each lash but doesn't leave it clumpy or goopy! Man, where has this mascara been all my life! If you're going pasta dollar tree, get this!
So, I stopped by a local dollar/beauty supply store, hopeful to find NYX. I didn't find it, but I did spot some good ass deals. The cashier was very nice in pointing me in the direction of their sale items. These particular bins had items marked as $.75! I wanted to buy NYX's candy glitter liners at the beauty supply in my last post, but found these at a better deal. So my grand total was $2.39! That is less than 1 NYX Candy glitter liner! So, I'm very happy with my purchase and might be going back for more...
The brand is called Love Me 365, and the product name is Stardust glitter liner.
Colors (from R to L): Santa Monica (blue), 3rd Street Promenade (green), and Beverly Blvd. (Gold)

Colors from L-R: Blue, Green, Gold.

And that's the end! Hope you guys enjoyed! Make sure to follow me on Twitter! I'm always on!
