Mini ULTA & Sephora Haul ( Again -_- )

I've been a baaaaad baaaad girl.... not really, I could be an axe murderer. Look ma! Makeup! I've been on the hunt for some new foundations lately. I've always heard great reviews about NARS Sheer Glow foundation, so I decided to give it a go. Of course while on that hunt I decided to purchase what others may call a waste. It's no waste, when it's on my face boo * insert eye roll here* .So yeah here are a list of list of gooodayyyyzzz that I bought!

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation: This foundation is far from sheer. It's not see through, but it's not thick either. It's medium to definite full coverage. It's described as a beneficial to the skin foundation as it helps improve the skins texture over time.The texture to me is very satin like on the skin. To me, it gives a "plumpened, hydrated, dewy/not so dewy" look. Confused? Don't be, It's awesome, buy it.

KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil: I received this as a deluxe sample with my order. I think the packaging is extremely gorgeous and elegant. My only not so happy point with this product is the smell. It smells of a very synthetic rose. I wouldn't have a problem if it were a light scent, but the scent is not only strong, it lingers on your face for quite a while. Aside from that , I do feel like its brightening properties are valid. My complexion does look brighter and feels softer.

NYX Pro Foundation Mixer in Deep: I had gotten this in the color warm, and I figured for the warmer months when I do tan up, I don't wanna look orange, but I want to have dimension in my foundation. I feel like you can't really pull off a foundation mixer in a foundation with just one mixer. With just one mixer, foundation may lose it's vibrancy and has the potential to look "flat". So I bought the two to use together in order to deepen and enrich.

Smashbox Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer: Bruh?! Where have you been all my life?! I really thought this was the most gimmicky thing and that I would never need this...until I received it as a sample. Ohmaigerrrrdd. Bruh, Ok, So the consistency is that EXACTLY like the smashbox photofinish primer. EXACTLY. The ingredients are similar, just lacking a few things. Once I finished my sample, I figured, pffft, I'm just gonna use my primer on my lips. It went 100 to 0, real quick. It was NOT the same. Crazy right? The insta-matte transforms your cream and satin lipsticks into a comfortable, satiny, mattey goodness on your lips. I honestly would recommend putting this on top of your already matte lipsticks just to make them more comfortable throughout the day. It locks in moisture while maintaining that matte finish. Please, don't make me talk too much, you need this in your life. Buy it. The end.

NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray: I never thought I'd try this out because of the fact that it contained the word "dew". Something my face produces naturally aka oil. But one day, I dunno, God sent an angel to speak to me, and ....I listened, and the finish is really not that bad! It's a dew, but its really a "glow" plus it kept my makeup fresh throughout the day. Try it, you'll like it...well, maybe not the nozzle, but you'll like it.

Urban Decay Shadow Box:  Truth be told, I wouldn't have bought this palette if it weren't on sale. I own dozens of Urban Decay palettes. I admit it, I'm obsessed. And this palette doesn't disappoint....well some colors do, but uh, we'll get to that. Every color maintains it's pigmentation except for THE ONE I LOVED OUTTA THIS WHOLE PALETTE! Freelove,your love is not free I paid for you, and you still sucked. LIAR....I still love you. XOXO
