Shopping Haul #2

Friday, September 09, 2016
There are times when you do not plan on having a huge shopping haul, but, hey, it happens to the best of us. I had an awesome opportunity to go back to my favorite stores that I only get to visit once a year to do further damage since my Shopping Haul. This haul ended up being equally as awesome and rewarding as the last. Let's jump straight into the haul so that you can discover some great new must-haves.

Ellen Tracy Contour Brush

I bought this brush mainly to contour with the slanted side. It works great, and is probably the best brush that I have used for contouring. I can actually see my contour without it being too harsh, and can blend it out. This brush is very soft.

City Color The Brow Effect

I enjoy buying all sorts of different brow products so that I have a variety to work with. I really like this set. I have used both of the powders. I think each color works for me, and they held up all day.

Simply Nova Hair Ties

I thought these hair ties were super pretty and just different, so I bought them. I also think that I can work with the colors.

City Color Figtastic Eyeshadow Palette

I bought this palette because I heard good things about it online, and the colors are beautiful. The eyeshadow is feels very creamy, almost as if it is a cream product. I was disappointed by the pigmentation, but that will not stop me from trying it out.

L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint

Do these remind you of the Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks? I thought what the heck, let's try a knock off. These are very pigmented and shiny. However, the swatches never actually set. I figure that they will rub off and will not pass the kiss test.

Beauty Treats Velvet Matte Lipstick in 01

I thought this was going to be a great, dark red shade for Fall, but I was wrong. This product swatched a lot lighter than the bullet appears. I will have to give this lipstick a thumbs down for the color being deceptive. The only good points are the neat packaging and the fact it is matte with no dry time required.

Beauty Treats Face Powder Contour Collection

I was slightly hesitant about this product, because their blush palette is on the extreme end of pigmentation. I am happy to report that while this is pigmented, it is by no means crazy. I do like it, but I would prefer more brown contour shades. A few of them may substitute well as a blush.

Neon Sharpies

A fun fact about me- I have a Sharpie collection. I did not have these colors, so I made sure to grab them during my shopping adventure.

Flower-shaped Lipstick Holder

I found one of these at the dollar store last year, and let me tell you, my wet n wild limited edition liquid lipsticks look killer in these. I needed a new one for the Fall collection liquid lipsticks, as the Summer collection filled my other holder. I was overjoyed to find this holder again, even though I had to pay $5 this time around. But, it is totally worth it.

Sally Hansen Salon Insta Gel Strips

Every time I find these kits at an affordable price I make sure to buy some because these things work and look great, and seriously do not chip.

Neck Support Pillow and Eye Mask

I was probably the only person on the planet who did not own these items, and after I saw the pineapples and flamingos, I was sold. I figure I can use the neck pillow while I am reading in my chair. I am not a fan of eye masks, though. I know I will never be able to sleep with it on.

Locker Chandelier

This was a total silly. what the heck purchase for my college locker. I have always been a fan of locker decorating. This thing really gives off the light!

My Beauty Spot Set

As a nail polish collector, I was excited to see this super cute set. Everything came inside of the mason jar drinking cup. I just had to have it for the sake of adorableness
