You all know I’m always looking for an excuse to go for a haul, (then again who am i kidding I don’t ever really need one) so when Sirusho (@sirushooffical) was in town last week and wanted to go make-up shopping, I was ready to buy shit that I didn’t even NEED! I posted the photo of all the products a few days ago (here it is again):
Let’s start off with anything I had to restock on that I’ve blogged about too many times.
My tried and true Daily Concepts Dual Scrubber: Seriously best body scrubber EVER.
Next I restocked on my Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder in shade 01 Fair. Most of you guys know I use this to set my under eye concealer. IT’S THE BEST!!!
Of course my Half Lashes. My 2 favs are Red Cherry DS04 and Ardell #318. Can’t live without these.
Last restock was my ONE AND ONLY Superbly Restorative Argan Dry Oil By Kiehl’s. I have lost count on how many of these babies I have emptied out. I swear I should be past bottle #20. No matter how many scented body butters I use, and get over, I will never get over this oil. I loveeee the scent! Feels like I’m in a spa, it works wonders on my skin, it’s easy to apply, takes one minute to rub all over the body after a shower…I can go on forever. Can Kiehl’s just send me a life time supply?!
I think that’s all on the products I was restocking on. The rest is just stuff I didn’t need but couldn’t stop myself from buying because well, we all know I have issues. So here we go:
This first powder is something Sirusho recommended, I picked up shade 04 becuase it has more of a yellow tone:
Next I got this Smashbox Photo Matte Exposure Palette
Right off the bat I can tell you guys that I DO NOT like this palette. For the longest time I was going back and forth about whether or not I should get it, and so I finally did. I bring it home and realize that none of the colors are nice. They looked wonderful at the store, but at home when I swatched them, they either didn’t have good pigment, or I didn’t like the color. The warm neutrals I didn’t like at all because they just were not warm enough and the rest were too cool toned for me.
I had been wanting to try these Lily Gahlichi lashes in Miami for a while now. I think I had seen my friend Nare wear them a while back and loved it on her, but it was always sold out so I didn’t get a chance to get it. The strip seems too thick though.
This Pony Tail by Laura Mercier is one of the best blending brushes ever made. I had 1 already so I just picked up one more, you never know when they will discontinue it lol. It’s made with blue squirrel hair, you guys have to go feel the bristles on this brush, it’s insane and it blends like a dream.
While at Naimies we bumped into Armine (Lilit’s sister) who couldn’t stop raving about these Peter Thomas 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Gel Eye Patches that she had popped in to get. Of course we couldn’t resist getting it as well. I have never tried an eye patch, I hope it’s not bullshit.
Looks really nice in the tub lol.
Have you guys seen the new Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealers?
I had seen a lot of the YouTubers I follow rave about it so I picked one up in the color Custard. I hear it blends like a dream. I will keep you guys posted on my thoughts.
This next item I actually got from Bloomingdales at the Sherman Oaks mall. It is not a color I normally wear, but I tried it on for my girlfriend Aly to see and she thought it looked great on me so I decided to get it:
And I paired it with Oak lip liner because Subculture is kinda too brown for me.
Here is what they look like together: The lipstick is a cool tone and the liner is warm but they look great together.
Of course going to Naimies was not enough so we made a quick stop at Frends Beauty where I stumbled upon this beauty:
You guys have seen me post the Viseart 01 Neutral Warm Palette and I have mentioned how AMAZING the formula is on these shadows, granted they cost an arm and a leg. Well, they have launched a new palette called the 10 Warm Matte, and when I saw it I went weak in the knees. If you guys have never swatched one of these before, you are missing out! (I hate that yellow though).
So this product I actually ordered online about 3 weeks ago because Lilit texted me a photo of it, and told me that I would love it. It was launching right around the time she sent me the pic. So 10am the day it launched I went onto the colourpop website and ordered it.
It’s a collaboration with Alexis Ren and Colourpop. Colors are really nice!
I stopped by Sephora at the Americana and saw these Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks. I generally don’t wear lipstick, and I am really not a fan of matte liquid lipstick because of the way it makes my lips feel. So I have no idea why I got these, or why I even got 3 of them. I think I was hoping I would really love one of the colors. The smell is soooooo nice!
I accidentally deleted the photo I took of the colors I bought. So let me just list it for you guys: Flirt (first one from right), Trendsetter (middle), and Venus (first from left). I don’t think I am going to like Trendsetter.
I am late on the bandwagon to get the Tartiest Pro Glow, but that’s because I have not heard great reviews on this product. I will have to judge for myself.
I think that is it for this Haul! Till next Haul, signing off…Your Beauty Guru.
Good Morning Guys,
Last night I decided to make egg breakfast bites. I love the Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites with Bacon & Gruyere but it has so much sodium, and I know the alternative is the egg white bites but those taste like shit to me. So I thought I’d make my own version. I used mushrooms, spinach, cauliflower, and broccoli. I mixed mine with both yolk and white, but for my husband I only used egg white (which I hate) but he eats way more clean than I do.
–I gotta admit though, they do look pretty ugly and wrinkly on the plate. But they taste really good, and most importantly they are healthy.
