Tiny Beauty Haul!
Recently I did some online shopping and I picked up a few things from each place. I thought I would show you what I got and do a few swatches!!!
For those of you who know me, you know I have been ride or die with VS since early 2000 when I worked for their beauty line, when it was a separate company. Now, as I have gotten older, I find I don't really care for too many of their beauty products. Their glosses tend to be too tacky and the actual makeup isn't as pigmented as I would like. BUT, I absolutely love their hand creams. And this is one of those! Yes I got a towel and a bikini bag (don't ask why, I have a problem...lol). You can shop VS here: Victoria's Secret
ColourPop is a new thing for me. I actually hadn't tried too many of their products, and I had never ordered from them in the past. I was given a lippie stix once that I loved. So I wasn't sure what to expect when I placed this order. To my joy and surprise, it came very quickly and the products are amazing!
The two eye shadows on the left are Telepathy, a green/gold/yellow metallic shadow that is actually part of the Kathleen Lights collection. And Erotic, which is a gorgeous pink/orange shimmer shade. Both are highly pigmented and completely amazing. So far, very little fall out as well.
The two lip colors to the right are Lippie Stix Poppin', which is a bright bold pink that looks amazing on! And the ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park which is a nude/brown color. They are both creamy and wonderful. Super easy to apply and no running. BTW, the Lippie Stix was free with my purchase, so always check out the deals before you order! Check them out here: ColourPop
So it seems I am always on Sephora.com. I actually prefer it to going into the stores half the time because ours are always so busy! So when I saw this contour/highlight kit I knew I had to pick it up. To the right are the swatches! And I love the tiny brush!
Then, while looking at the Tarte line, I saw this awesome looking palette! This is the Rainforest of the Sea collection palette, and as you can see, the packaging is stunning! But most things Tarte does are amazing. To see the whole collection go to Tarte Cosmetics!
These are the swatches from the palette, from pinky to first finger...
Left picture: Seashell, Wave, Abyss, & Reef
Right picture: Starfish, Cove, Sand, & Mermaid.
In all fairness, I love the shimmers but not a fan of the mattes. They feel super chalky, so sorry Cove and Sand, you are not my faves....
The last thing I picked up at Sephora was a new lipstick from the company Bite. I have never used a Bite product before, so I was pretty excited about this. The color is Radish, and it is a lovely magenta with violet/blue undertones! It glides on and lasts for a while, but I will say you should use a liner with this color, it does tend to bleed a bit.
You can shop for Bite products here: Bite Beauty
I hope you enjoyed the tiny beauty haul! I liked doing this one a lot, so we will see where this leads!
