4th of July Weekend Shopping Haul

Friday, July 29, 2016
For me, the summer holidays mean lots of shopping paired with lots of good deals. Over the 4th of July weekend 2016, I was out and about finding amazing items to add to my fashion, makeup, jewelry, nail polish, and accessory collections. I have been itching to wear and try out all of these items ever since my haul. Let's take a look at what I got so that you can get a decent idea of what's out in stores now that you may like to purchase.

I have to note that I love the adjustable cinch waist on these chambray shirt jackets! The ends of the sleeves also have snap button adjusters. These are perfect for making your figure look slender. I went back and purchased a black one.

Sephora

Each time I enter a Sephora I allow myself to get another Naked palette. I finally have all of them! Just as with any Urban Decay palette, I think the shades are gorgeous and the pigmentation is great.

wet n wild Small Eyeshadow Brush

I already had the large eyeshadow brush, and it made it's way into my daily routine to add highlight to my inner corner and browbone. While my life staple eyeshadow brush for my eyelid is e.l.f.'s, I will give this brush a try. I think it will pack on color well.

e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Smokey Sea

I was surprised by the pigmentation when I swatched this. I have other e.l.f. baked products, and the pigmentation just isn't there. I found the white shade to be extremely pretty. It almost has a gold shimmer to it as you rotate it in the light. I can see myself grabbing for this trio to make use of the white as a browbone and inner corner highlight.

e.l.f. HD Blush in Superstar

In my e.l.f. haul 4 I swatched a different shade of the HD blush. I wasn't fond of it because the color was too dark and pigmented for my pale skin. This shade, however, I adore! I think I will be brave enough to use it for the first day back to school. My application plan is to squeeze the smallest amount that I can onto the back of my hand, use my finger to apply it in dots onto my cheeks, then blend it with a blending sponge. This product fully dries, leaving me without worry that it will fade away during the day.

wet n wild Silk Finish Lipsticks

As I have said in the past, these are standard lipsticks. I think that they are perfect for those getting into makeup and makeup junkies alike. wet n wild still produces the Silk Finish lipsticks, but now they are in black packaging. I was more impressed by these swatches than I was with the previous batch of swatches I did. However, I often find the one that I'm most excited about always tends to come out more sheer. I will say it again- I think these lipsticks could be more opaque. An interesting note is that Dark Pink Frost has some really pretty gold flecks in it.
