****Mac Haul****


First up we have Mac Trace Gold Shimmer blush. In this picture I caked the blush on so you can get a better view of the color but putting this directly on you're face with a brush, it is very light pigmented with a lot of shimmer. It is a bronze/gold color & makes the skin glow! This blush in my opinion is for a very natural look & for 20$ as pretty as it is, I am not crazy about it. I am very light skinned & when I wear this blush unless I put a lot on it isn't very visible but very pretty & I would definitely recommend this to a friend if you are more for that natural look!! Three outta Five stars!!

Next we have is two Mac lipsticks. The left lipstick is Hue AA9 & the right is Cherish A79. The Hue color is a Glaze! It is a very light pink/nude. Let me just say I think this color is great for any skin tone. It looks very pretty just by itself & love that this is an everyday lipstick! It is very moisturizing & is one of my favorite lipsticks! The second lipstick is called "Cherish". This is such a gorgous color!! It is a satin. The shade does not look the same on everyone! It gives me a nude like look with pink undertones as for a darker complexion could look completely different. The color payoff is great & looks amazing on tanned skin!! 4 outta 5 stars!

This is Mac's glitter liner in "Oxidate". The price of this liner is $9.99. I am not crazy about the packaging of this product. It is a very flimsy plastic. The color payoff is alright. It does have a lot of glitter payoff but this liner just by itself looks horrible! When I use this liner I first use a regular liquid liner or pencil & then go over it with the Mac liner to give it that glitter effect. I have yet to try the other colors but for Mac, I am very disappointed in this product. I give this product a 2 outta 5 stars!

Last but not least!! Oh em gee! Look at this color!!! Isn't it amazing??? It was love at first sight!!! This is Mac eye shadow in "Electric Eel" & I am sooo happy I got this product! It is amazing! This is a lovely bright blue color with a satin finish. It is highly pigmented & easy to blend! The color payoff is beautiful. For blue eyes this shade makes you're eyes pop! It is gorgeous & I would reccomend this to anyone! Light & dark skin. It is so worth the money but this I got as a gift & I am so thankful for it!! I give this product a 5 outta 5 stars!! Amazing!!

This is not Mac related but just wanted to share this adorable makeup bag I got for my birthday last week!! It is to freaking cute not to share!! This item was found at Marshall's for real cheap!! Kisses xo

This is my NYX Cosmetics Haul!
Hope this helps on you're next purchase for NYX!!
I got all of these items from "Ulta"

First up is one of my FAVORITE items from NYX Cosmetics. The Jumbo Eye Pencil in the color "milk". This is a VERY popular product from this company. I love using this pencil for a base before I put on my eye shadow. A Highlight Color for my Smokey looks but mostly use this pencil on my water line to make my eyes "POP". It is very pigmented & lasts hours. I LOVE this product & I would recommend it to anyone! You can also use this pencil on you're lips to brighten a lipstick!. I got this as a gift from a friend but the stores that I know of that you can buy these at are Ulta & Harmon's for $4.50. On a scale from 1-10. I give this a 10!!!

 Next we have NYX Candy Glitter Liner in "Hot Candy". This Liner is so pretty! The picture doesn't do it any justice but its very sparkly & goes on very easily. Don't get this confused with the "Studio Liquid Glitter Liners". Just to make sure you know what you're getting. Make sure the applicator has a long pom pom attached to it! The studio liner doesn't, but anyways!!! It doesn't chunk up & dries pretty quick. I love to use this on my lids for a little sparkle with my smokey looks. It just gives it that extra touch. Using it over black liner when you are wearing a "cateye" look is amazing! the sparkle is so pink & for $4.00 you can't beat that! scale from 1-10, I give this liner a 9.

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss! I've said this in my last post. I am not a lip gloss kinda girl but these NYX lip gloss make you're lipstick stand out more & give it that pretty glossy look. They go on smooth with a pretty good color payoff. These also were given to me as a gift! My favorite out of the three is "Sugar Pie'. The color "Perfect" is a very glitter lip gloss & if you're into that go for it! The lipgloss "Beige" is more of a deep pink color. Not beige in my opinion. On the NYX website you can buy these in a set for $10.00 but these were bought individually for $5.50 in store. scale from 1-10 I give theses a 7.

I am deeply sorry for the way this packaging looks! I have had this lipstick in my purse for a while & the writing just decided to come off!! This is NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colors Lipstick in "Pure Nude". I love the color of this lipstick. It is very moisturizing. The color pay off is alright. The only thing I do not like about this lipstick is that it doesn't last long. You have to reapply this lipstick throughout the day. If you're okay with that then awesome! I am not crazy about it but that's just me! scale from 1-10, I give these a 6.  

 This is for all you Barbie Dolls out there!!!! I must say, I LOVE this lip liner !!! The color is 839 "Dolly Pink". I knew I had to have it the moment I seen the color on Instagram. It is so worth the buy! The bright pink color stands out so much & has the best color payoff. It goes on easily & like pretty much all NYX products its so cheap. For the price, this liner works AMAZING!! I bought this liner at "Harmon's" for $3.49. I will buy again! scale from 1-10, I give this a 9!!

And last but not least! This is NYX "Triple Eye Shadows" in TS01 white/grey/black For Sexy Eyes Only!! Ain't that the truth! I keep saying I love I love I love but oh my!! For $7.00 this palette is amazing for it's pigmentation! I got this palette for the white eye shadow & it is as amazing as I thought it would be!. Very matte, in my opinion. Love smokey eyes?? Get this Palette! Goes on so easily & the colors are gorgeous! It is packaged well. The Grey color has shimmer to it but not over the top! The black is pretty matte & I don't notice any shimmer it. Over all. NYX cosmetics is amazing & it is one of my favorite makeup brands. I am obsessed :) scale from 1-10 I give this a 9!

Revlon Matte Lipstick in "Nude Attitude" & EcoTools Stippling Brush

Yesterday I went to Ulta & purchased two things. 
The first thing I got was "Revlon's Matte Lipstick in Nude Attitude"

You can buy this lipstick at Target, Walmart, RiteAid, Ulta, Walgreens & Cvs. I have been searching for this lipstick for weeks & couldn't find it because it was always sold out everywhere I went. Just let me tell you I LOVE this lipstick!! I'm not a lipstick or lip gloss kinda girl but once I put this on. I instantly fell in love. Not everyone will like the feel of this lipstick & like I said I don't like the moisture feeling to my lips, so if that is what you like this lipstick isn't for you. The matte finish doesn't leave my lips feeling all sticky & wet. I like dryness to my lips. It drives me nuts wearing something on my lips & I can feel it there. Wearing this feels like I'm not wearing anything! The reason I decided to even get this lipstick was because it's an exact dupe to the Mac "Lady Gaga 2" lipstick & for half the price it is definitely worth the buy! I got this lipstick for $6.99 when Mac lipstick is around $15.00. Which isn't to bad but for a dupe this its half the price! I rate this lipstick a 5 outta 5!!! 

The second thing I got at Ulta is a "EcoTools" Bamboo Finishing Kabuki Brush "stippling brush". 

This is my very first stippling brush so I didn't want to go out all on the price if I wasn't going to end up using it but I have yet to hear anything bad about these brushes. You use this brush for applying that finishing touch of power to set foundation. I actually was looking for the Real Techniques stippling brush & it was sold out but because of that, I found this amazing brush! I think it works great. Especially for the price!! I paid $7.99 for this brush!!. It's soft & cruelty-free. It's also earth-friendly & features a natural bamboo handle and soft cruelty free bristles. This brush can be used by beginners!!. I love it & the finishing look on my makeup is amazing after I use it!! I give this brush a 4 outta 5 stars!!
