Autumn Hauls and Gifts

A haul? It's seems like it's been ages!!!

Profusion Sparkle Palette
I have been looking for sparkling eye-catching shadows lately especially for this holiday season and found this $5 palette at my local dollar store. I really like it, there are 24 glittery shadows in this palette and not one of them are chunky! Which is great considering whenever I have dealt with glitter shadows most of them tend to be chunky which fall out and end up on your cheeks or elsewhere!

Wet n Wild I (heart) Matte

At my recent trip to Walgreens I ran into this 8 shadow palette by WnW which holds 8 very nice matte shadows, I had never seen it before but chose to buy it and try it out. I like it but I have yet to create a look using it, I will probably try it out sometime this week! Speaking of WnW, I got one of the newest limited edition holiday palettes in Bake off Contest which comes with a shimmering eye pencil. I really like it but I feel 2 out of the 6 aren't pigmented instead powdery and blotchy.

200-Plush Peach

Covergirl and Olay Simply Ageless eye concealer in 210 is Simply Awesome! Let me start out by saying that I love love love this concealer. A review is in the works. I picked this up using my $8 off coupon and also grabbed the CG SA sculpting blush in 200. I am still trying out the blush so I will let you know how it works out. Please let me know if you have tried it and share with us your thoughts :)

I've been wanting to try out the Maybelline Liquid Mousse so I took a chance and bought the color Medium 2.5 - it's a perfect match, lol. I also bought the Physicians Formula gel eyeliners for Blue Eyes, and 2 cream shadows from Urban Decay which were on clearance for $3 each.

I had a strange craving for some more art brushes

Master's Touch
-3/0 Spotter
-1/4 Angular Shader

I have used the Angular Shader for gel eyeliners and it works extremely well

I was sent the newest additions to Covergirl as a gift among other things but I am eager to try out these:

-Intense shadowblast in Blue Bomb
-Simply Ageless foundation
-Simply Ageless Serum Primer

So far I have tried the foundation which I really like, the color Soft Honey is an exact match but I still see a tad bit of pink undertones which don't exactly agree with my yellow undertones in the face. I will do a review and let you know my thoughts.

More Polish! The new Essie color in School of Hard Rocks, Revlon's Gold Charm and Carbonite, Orchid and only because of the name is the reason for buying, lol, called Royal Engagement.

I was sent the newest L'Oreal Youth Code skincare line and I can say this, I am in love with the Day/Night cream which is so reminiscent of MAC's Studio Moisture Cream and has almost the exact same scent. I will do a full review, can't wait!


  1. I really hope to find those new WnW palettes! You got some great things. :)

  2. Stephanie, Thanks! I really like the WnW palettes, the two colors that I'm not fond of from the baked are the royal blue and the pure white one, all the others are nice! Isn't the name for the matte one so cute? lol :) Have a great week!

  3. All the collection is great and wonderful.
    thanks for the sharing, i really loved the stuff.
