CCO Haul! <3

unnamedI’ve been out of town for the past few days and I was lucky enough to stumble into a CCO store! :D I do have one in my state but it’s a 2 hour drive for me so I rarely ever visit. I was lucky enough to find some great items, at a great discounted price, from recent past collection that I had been eyeing, but never purchased! Here is what I got: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Nude Glow, MAC Beauty Powder in Pearl Glow from the Year of Snake Collection, Estee Lauder Stay-On Shadow Paint in Steel, MAC Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Catch My Eye, and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Adored.

They smell amazing, like vanilla, and go on smooth and pigmented. A couple of these are in the permanent collection, but a lot of them were from limited edition collections. Here is a list of my all time favorite MAC lipsticks!: MAC Flair for Finery, MAC Feed the Senses, MAC Modesty, MAC Close Contact, and MAC Creme Cup.

NYX Bohemian Chic Nude Matte Collection Palette Review!

The price varies depending on where you purchase it, but it is usually around the $10-$18 range. I managed to get it on sale! What really drew me in was the fact that it had all mattes and cheek colors, with pops of color on the bottom. I really like having neutral mattes around to mix in with my other shadows, and blend out my eye looks. The packaging is really cute and portable, and it has every shade you need. The quality of the shadows are ok, but again, mixed with other shadows, they work great.bloglovinicontwitterfbb

Diorshow Extase Mascara Review!

20140413_142810_copy20140413_142908_copy20140413_142851_copyThis is my all time favorite high end mascara. It’s the Diorshow Extase Mascara in Black $28.50. Yes, it is a lot for a mascara, but this formula and brush works amazingly for me! It has a thicker gel formula, and it really coats every lash, the brush allows to get the volume that you want all the way across your entire eye! It dries fairly quickly, and the effect is great for my Asian lashes. I really only need one coat!
