beauty haul 2014 1

How many of you love watching beauty hauls videos on YouTube? I know I do! It’s always fun to see what other beauties out there are loving at the moment or not loving. Sometimes when I watch these types of videos it inspires me to go out and explore the beauty market for either new skincare to improve the health of my skin, new color items to enhance my features or new hair accessories to rock when I am feeling a bit more fabulous!

Now…before you ask.. yes I did purchase the items in this photo.. These are items that either I regularly use or watched to try something new. Most of the items mentioned have been collectively purchase over the past 2 months and man was it fun looking for new thing to try!!

Nails…

If you follow me on instagram I have been blowing my page over the past 5 months with some of my favorite nails colors from Sephora’s new line Formula X for Sephora!! Now if you know me well I already own ALOT of the polishes. Not to mention there is selection of shades I have won from a company contest that I will share with you later. (lot’s a formula X special effects polish, yahooo!!!) In the photo I purchased Formula X For Sephora New Neutrals Reckless a little denim blue shade…. and Formula X For Sephora New Neutrals Perfection a smoky violet shade. The formula X nail polishes has really impressed with how long the wear and how pigmented the colors are! I like them better then the Sephora by OPI!!

I’m a girl that also love glitter on the nails from time to time so feel in love with Debora Lippmann’s Let’s go crazy which is a gorgeous royal purple and Va Va Voom which is a beautiful sapphire glitter for your Virgos out there !! I believe these shades are only available in-store for I purchased them both at a Sephora Inside JCPenney. Otherwise if you are a online shopper you can go directly to Deborahlippmann.com.

Lips…

For the lips I decided to check out the most raved about drugstore lip product from Revlon’s Colorburst Matte balm collection! At the moment I have been into matte and long wear lip color. I guess I don’t like to touch up through out the day and this type of formula helps me out in that arena! I picked up 3 shades in Showy, Shameless and mischievous.

These matte lip balms gives off a beautiful velvety Matte Look.  They are also Moisture Rich Balm that contains Revlon’s Our Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Coconut and Mango butters that is supposed to nourish lips. You can find this at your local drugstore. It appears they released these prior to Christmas and my be hard to find. I found the at my local H-E-B! Can’t wait to play!!

Eyes…

You all already know I LOVE Urban Decay shows!! I used them in the majority of my videos I have the NAKED 1 and now the Urban Decay Naked3 Palette !! The most sold out palette of the holiday season!! Initially I was not going to purchase this one…..and I decided too because it was so different for the original one!! I will definitely have a review on this one soon! Maybe even a giveaway if I can locate on to purchase, lol! In addition to the urban decay palette I also decided to purchase the Cover Girl clump crush mascara for my tiny lashes. I like that the wand is small and easy to load my lashes on the wand. So, we will see how this compare to my Peter Thomas Roth Mascara!

Face…

I SOOOO love Josie Maran’s Argan oil, so out of curiosity I had to purchase her matchmaker foundation!! This foundation is so cool because if blends to a shade that matches your skintone! I was just going to purchase the foundation alone….and I noticed Sephora carries a set called “Argan Matchmaker Complexion Kit”. For $68 I got a blush, full size Argan oil light, powder and the matchmaker foundation!! I love it so far. It’s light and soft to the touch!

Other items purchased..

  1. Sephora customize skincare set only at Sephora Inside JCPenney
  2. Ole Henriksen Power Peel
