Sugarpill Haul & Review!

& of course they offered a sale :) Here are the goodies I got:

The packaging is super adorable!!

These feel a bit heavy/sturdy because of the mirrors and they're are also magnetized :)

Swatched left to right: Flamepoint, Buttercupcake, Love +, Poison Plum
(How awesome is it to have a TRUE red?!) 

Swatched left to right: Dollipop, Afterparty, Midori, Tako

I was dying to try out the pressed eye shadows, so when Shrinkle announced the birthday sale I had to pick these up along with another loose e/s in Starling (which is GORGEOUS btw) but I wanted to focus this post on just the palettes. As you can see they are extremely pigmented, bold, and bright! Just the way colors should be. They are all mostly matte. Poison Plum has some pretty pink & blue sparkles in it, and Afterparty has a nice satin finish. There really is nothing to say other then these are amazing! Definitely add these to your collection! :)

My current beauty wishlist

Let's be honest here, this list can be way longer then this, but let's take baby steps for now lol
One day these shall be mine ♥

#1. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb: This is my favorite scent of all time! I NEED this in my life! I had a small sample for the longest time because I didn't want to ever run out, but sadly it's now gone :(  Seriously this wears so good on me. I can smell this everyday ALL DAY. Call it crazy...but I call it LOVE ♥ ;) This isn't the most affordable scent, hence why I don't have it yet lol. The size I want which is the 3.4 oz retails for $150. I know your probably thinking if I love it so much, why not get a smaller one for now? I would rather wait and get the big bottle because this is a scent that is worth the wait and the money! 

#2. Makeup Forever Face and Body: My skin isn't the greatest. Although I don't have acne or huge breakouts, I have super dry skin in certain areas on my face! I break out with a couple pimples here or there, but nothing dramatic. I also have redness around my nose, eyebrows, and chin which is so annoying! But for the most part, I don't need a full coverage foundation. For some reason, even after I exfoliate my face before I put on any foundation (after moisturizer of course) I still see dry areas on my face. It's like the foundation brings it out even more :( And it's not my moisturizer because it only looks dry when I apply foundation. It's mainly around my nose. I have tried different foundations, and tinted moisturizers but I'm still on the hunt for that "holy grail" foundation. I do like a couple that I'm currently using, but it's not something I "love". I heard a lot about this MF Face and Body and it seems like something that might work for me. I like how its a water based foundation and it claims to be very natural. I hate feeling like I have something on my face so maybe this might be a good choice. We will see :)

#3. NARS Spring 2012 collection blush in Gaiety: Described as a matte candy pink. OMG need I say more?! This color looks gorgeous! Since my first purchase of the Danmari palette, I have fell in love with NARS blushes. How nice it would be to afford all of them lol. It's so hard to get past paying almost $30 for one, but this is truly beautiful and wearable for an everyday color. 

#4. Nails Inc. Magnetic Polish: I love nail polish whether if it's cream, shimmer, glitter, bright, neutral, you name it. This is very unique and I love it. I would def rock this! I love how you can create different designs with this as well. $16 each is a bit steep for a nail polish, but so tempting! 

#5. Too Faced Natural at Night: I'm not in a rush to get this since I already own the UD Naked 1 & 2. I love my neutrals. The colors look beautiful! Too faced has really nice eye shadows. Such great quality and affordable for what you get! I definitely want to get my hands on this one day. 

If you'd like, let me know what's on your wishlist or what you recommend! :)

CoverGirl Blast Flipstick Lipcolor

What it is: Double-ended lipstick. One shimmer, one cream shade
What it claims: Create your one-of-a-kind look with the expertly designed blendable lip duos. Mix and match cream and shimmer shades with the flip of a stick for a unique look with endless possibilities.

Swatched left to right: Smooch, Pucker, Stunner

Surprise, Surprise...another new drugstore product that I love ;)  This post is a little late, I apologize. I took the pictures a while ago, and forgot to do a post since I've been busy with starting my YouTube videos. Better late then never right? :)  I love the concept and color selection of these. It's like the new "Ombre lips" effect. They go beautifully together for the ones I have. They are very opaque and long wearing. These actually stain my lips a little after taking it off. I like how you can wear these in multiple ways. It's always nice to have different options in just one product. The only con about these that some people don't like is that some of the shimmer sides are a little gritty on the lips. It doesn't bother me cause I don't think it's that bad honestly. I would recommend these especially for photography. Very pretty! 

*Retails for $7-$10 in various drugstores*
