So, call me crazy, but I think I’ve been just as excited to blog about the things I’ve bought recently than to actually use them. (Say what, girlfriend??) 🙂
But anyway, I went shopping this weekend with a friend to pick up some new things. (Side note: does anyone else find it weird that people apologize for “not having much in a haul” and then go on to show around $300 worth of makeup? That drives me nuts! I bought three things and now I’m broke 😉 but I guess that’s just how the beauty world goes ’round.)
We went to Sephora yesterday on a little “taking a break from studying” shopping trip. 🙂 I went in hoping to look through the NARS makeup, and ended up getting an eyeshadow duo. Both of us got mini makeovers, which I had never done before, and we ended up getting the eyeshadows that the makeup artist/sales lady put on us. She got the Tzarine duo, and I think I’m going to have to get my hands on that one next… it was SO gorgeous on her– definitely try to swatch it next time you’re able to. I was blown away!
I got the “Isolde” duo- which I originally saw on Zoe’s Blog, and I fell in love with it. This is my first NARS eyeshadow, and I already think it’s as good as everyone says it is. I’m so excited to wear it! 🙂
Hooray! The sticker is…. sort of… straight…?
I threw in some swatches, but click on Zoe’s blog link above, she took the time and got really nice pictures and swatches. Yo estoy cansada…
Yesterday, we also stopped by the M.A.C counter… it was my first “official” shopping trip at M.A.C, and I made my first M.A.C purchase. I got one a lipstick in the shade “Creme Cup,” and I’m so excited to have it! I’ll probably end up doing a review with swatches later on, because this picture makes it look a little bit darker than it really is.
I have also been loving Vivianna’s Blog, and she did a really nice review of some of the lip pencils that are currently out. she also mentions this one all of the time, and I don’t think I would have tried one of these new Revlon stains if it wasn’t for her! 🙂 I love this one- I got the shade “Charm,” and I wore it today. It’s definitely not what I thought it would be, so I’m planning a review soon, but I really love it!
