spring time collective haul (pt3)

Alright so here’s the final installment of this semi massive collective haul.

Purchase includes Buxom, Smashbox,and MAC.

 

I hadn’t tried any Smashbox items. I think I had a sample of the primer but never used it. I wasn’t very interested in what they were selling. Not sure why, but I just didn’t care for their products. I guess that’s until I spotted their under eye BB cream. This shade is “Medium.”

I don’t get why they call it that, to me just seems like any other liquid concealer. But anywho…it caught my eye so I picked it up.

It works well, gives me a nice refreshed look, doesn’t crease like crazy (although I have a deep set line under both my eyes, everything seeps into that crease), and it lasts. I like it!

Buxom was another brand I hadn’t try anything from. But I’d randomly come across this foundation, so of course I had to try it.
This weightless foundation can easily be compared to a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. I’d even compare it to a face and body foundation. Think MAC, MUFE has much better coverage.
This will be covered when I bring back my foundation review series.

spring time collective haul (pt 2)

On to the second installment of my collective haul…

This time we have a few products from NARS and Bobbi Brown.

First up NARS…

 

Maybe 2 or 3 months ago he released the contour/highlight blush duos. I picked up Gienah. As you can see, the highlight shade will not work as a highlight for me, you can hardly see it, but contour will be great. So if you’re about a New Guinea or deeper in NARS foundation shades, this highlight may work for you.
But idk about this one, the highlight could end up looking ashy. So try before you buy!
I may have been able to get away with Paloma. Ah well, this works. Contouring is one of my fav things about makeup.

spring time collective haul (pt 1)

for a while I had been over makeup.. I was content with everything I had and was focusing on continuing to build my kit… but then I made the mistake of rummaging google, looking at random stuff and ended up buying a bunch…

I’m going to break this up, with about 2 brands in each post so there isn’t just one long ass post

up first:

Revlon Photoready Skinlights
now it look me a while to find these. I spotted them all (there’s one more, which is bronze) at Ulta, but the bronze one was open. this was actually like my second time seeing them and all the tubes had been opened (y’all quit doing that, stores return policies are much more lenient now so if you dont like it or it doesn’t work, just take it back!).

so here we have:
barelight (left) and peach light (my fav)
