Collective Haul: Sephora, MAC, Drugstore, Sigma & CherryCulture

Yay to another haul in such a short time! I told myself in my New Year Haul that I wasn't going to buy anything else but I ended up buying a lot online. 

First up is from Sephora, which is perhaps the currently most sought after palette from Urban Decay which is the Naked2. Along with the palette are a few samples, a Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, a Too Faced Shadow insurance primer and three scents: Givenchy Play For Her, Viva La Juicy and Tom Ford Violet Blonde.

Next buy is from MAC. I was watching the haul of Ingrid (missglamorazzi) and Allison (amarixe) on MAC and Lush and Ingrid was showing a Mineralize Skinfinish that she just bought and was wearing which was MSF Blonde. I had just actually bought the MSF Soft & Gentle but even if I adore that product as a highlight I kinda wanted something that would double up as a blush. I ended up ordering two products from MAC: the MSF Blonde and a lipstick in the shade Brave. I have been wanting to get another MAC lipstick since the first and only one I've ever bought from them was a miss (Creme d'Nude) for me. I'm also trying to build up a MAC collection of lipsticks since I really love their bullet so this would be a start.

From the drugstore, I went and got the Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Normal to Dry Skin in 240 Medium Beige and one of the new Maybelline Color Tattoo. I got the shade Bad to the Bronze.

I am so in love with Sigma ever since I got my Mrs. Bunny and Sigmax face brushes and I kept wanting to buy more. I went ahead and ordered the Sigma Dry & Shape and the Mr.Bunny Travel Kit. I was so happy when I got the Mr.Bunny brushes - my Mrs. Bunny brushes now have a mister. :)

I was on the last stage of my online shopping spree and I was browsing the NYX website because there were so many products that I have been wanting to pick up but have never gotten around to and I suddenly remembered that the online store CherryCulture carries NYX and other cosmetic brands as well. I went to CherryCulture and they were having a sale on select NYX items and so, instead of ordering at NYX I ordered a bunch of items from CC. I got two cream blushes: Boho Chic and Tickled, two soft matte lip creams: Tokyo and Milan,  a round lipstick in Stella, a round lip gloss in Mauve, a jumbo pencil in Milk, a Black skinny marker, and a single eyeshadow in Rootbeer (which is my all-time favorite brow powder along with NYX Greyish Brown). CC was also having a sale on select Milani products so I also purchased a Liquif'eye Liner Pencil in Black to back up my current eyeliner. 

That's it for my makeup haul! I'm totally broke now but makeup still makes me happy. :) Stay tuned for review of the products - tell me what you want to see a review on first! :)
