Collective Haul! March 2012

Happy Tuesday lovelies! Today I thought I'd share with you a little collective haul of a few things from Sephora and Ulta. I don't know about you, but when I heard about the Naked2 palette I actually wasn't all that excited, at least once I noticed the similarity it shared with the original one. I even told Angie with assurance that I wasn't going to get it, and yet here it is in a haul -___-

The reason I gave in wasn't because I was excited, or felt like I HAD to have it. It was more because I basically only wear neutrals on a day-to-day basis and I undoubtedly love the formulation of UD shadows, so this palette has a value that's quite difficult to pass up on (in my opinion). I know I will get a ton of use out of it!

Believe it or not, I was most excited to try the Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream because Ingrid or Missglamorazzi from Youtube has said such great things about it. I definitely was not let down. This is hands down the best hand cream I've ever used. It leaves your hands baby soft and has such a beautiful scent.

The Tarte box was a 500-point perk from Sephora. I was so so excited for it because I had been waiting for what seems like forever for a good option and this was it! I've only played with the LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint which was in the color, Fiery, a bright red. I absolutely love it!

The Nars products were a V.I.B gift which I was so excited for because Nars has slowly become one of my favorite make up brands! It included a sample of its Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, Bronzing Powder in Laguna, and Illuminator in Orgasm. I've mostly used the eyeshadow base and so far so good, I prefer its consistency over the UD primer potion, not sure if I'd repurchase it though. The last goodie I wanted to mention was the deluxe sample of Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. HOLY COW is this stuff good! People have said they get results in as little as one day but it took a week for me to see real results. My skin tone has basically evened out completely, its incredible! This is now a holy grail product for me.

Moving on from Sephora, I was out shopping yesterday with my girlfriend and we went into Urban Outfitters. We were looking around when I laid eyes on the Stila Daydreamer palette. I've been wanting this little guy for months! I think I first saw it some time in December at a Sephora inside a JCPenny. I had trouble finding it online afterwards but finally found it ironically on the UO website. Even then I kept thinking it over and over. Just a few days ago I decided I was just going to get it but yesterday when I was at UO I had to do a double take because the palette was marked at $4.99! My jaw dropped, literally. The palette was originally at $18, so there was no question about it at that point. I cannot wait to start playing with it!

Last but not least I had a $3.50 off coupon for Ulta, so naturally I HAD to get something. I was in need of a waterproof mascara and my girlfriend recommended the Maybelline Illegal Length, so we'll see how it works out. I'd also been dying to try the NYX Slide On pencils and I needed a bright electric blue color so I grabbed Azure. If it lives up to my expectations, my bank account will suffer the consequences.
