Makeup Haul!

People who knows me well may sense that I am turning into a crazy makeup addict/shopaholic. Not only do I love experimenting dramatic makeup practically on all days when I don't have work, I also love shopping for makeup!!! As you may have figured, I had a makeup haul while I was in Los Angeles and would love to share it with all of you!

 Throughout my entire vacation, I shopped for makeup mainly at three places: Target, Nordstrom Rack and Sephora

1. Make Up For Ever Camouflage Cream Palette - For the past few years, I have been experiencing serious freckles problem on my face even when I apply sunscreen everyday. My face also has a bit of redness and uneven skin tone so when I use one concealer trying to hide my skin imperfection, one skin tone concealer is simply not enough. When I first saw this cream palette at Sephora, I knew I have to get it. This palette has exactly what I was looking for, four fair to light skin tone cream concealer along with the green cream that conceal redness! I did not have a chance to try it on my face yet but I did test it on my hand and it blends very well. I will let you know how I like it once I try it on my face 
MAKE UP FOR EVER - 5 Camouflage Cream Palette
 2. Revlon ColorStay Lipliner - I am extremely satisfied with Revlon's balm stain so I decided to try more Revlon's lip products and in this case I bought a lipliner at Target. Same as the cream palette, I have not had a chance to try it but will let you know once I do.

3. NYX Navy Blue Eyeliner - if you have been following my posts, you will know how much I love NYX eyeliner! It glide on easily and it is highly pigmented. When I saw the eyeliners at Nordstrom Rack was only $3.50 each as opposed to $10 in Vancouver, I bought a couple of different colours. 

4. Urban Decay Primer Potion - I read so many great reviews about this primer so I decided to get one at Nordstrom Rack. They are selling it for only $10.

 5.NYX Liquid Eyeliner - Yes, NYX again!! Too happy with its colour so I decided give their liquid eyeliner a try.

6. Lancome Primer - got this as a gift from Sephora, can't wait to try it on :)

7. Boots Botanics Complexion Refining Concealer Stick - as I mentioned before that I am looking for a better concealer so I decided to give this brand a try. I got it from Target. I didn't go to Sephora until afterward which is why I have two concealers of two different brand and I am getting forgetful lately, I would often end up buying same makeup products but of different brand :b

8. NYX Eyeshadow - if you know me well, you will know that I am a crazy eyeshadow-holic! I believe our eyes is the number one feature that will catch people's attention so eye makeup is my top priority when doing a makeup look. I am constantly seeking for good quality/highly pigmented eyeshadows as they give the best result and NYX eyeshadow does an awesome job! Seeing these beautiful colours just make me colour-high!


I also bought a new set of brushes from Sephora. A painter without a brush can never be a great painter, well maybe if you are good at finger painting but all I wanted to say this is the same with makeup. A makeup artist without brushes can never do a great makeup. I used to use my finger a lot to apply eyeshadow because it is so much more convenient but ever since I started doing more and more dramatic makeup, I can never complete my look with just my fingers. At first I pay much attention to the quality of the brushes, I bought my first set of brushes for around $10. Yup, super poor quality with hairs fallen on my face when I apply makeup. The brush hair is quite rough especially the blush brush. Whenever I apply blush, my face used to turn more red cause it hurts my cheek. So please don't be like me, buy some good quality brushes as they are the magic wand that can do the Cinderella look! This new set of brushes that I bought is very soft to touch and most importantly it is anti-bacterial!
 


  
The last two pictures reveal how serious of an eyeshadow addict I am. Sorry couldn't give you guys much of a makeup review, but will definitely share with you what work best and what didn't once I have a chance to really play with my new makeup buddies!

Thank you for the sweet comments. I am still in the midst of responding to all comments and shall be able to catch up by end of the week. See you all next time!

xoxo <3

  16. I like to see what you buy for makeup since I don't buy or wear much myself {just concealer and mascara most of the time}. I can't wait to see what you do with it. I have tons of freckles too and I got a face mask that seems to make them less noticeable, it wasn't supposed to but I think that's what happens after I use it.

    I agree that you need quality items. I get so sad every time I spend money and what I purchase is poorly made - even when I didn't spend much, it seems like such a waste.
