Make up haul!

So, my sister and I watch makeup tutorials on youtube all the time! Well, she got me hooked on them....  after many years of trying to get her to put make-up on, she finally started and now she's so good at it, and loves it so much that she may go school to become an aesthetitian. I'm excited! So everytime these professional or even amateur youtube girls go shopping they call it a make-up haul...I had one today....sort of....well, for me it was. Make up is the only thing I spend money regularly on. I love it! My husband continues to try to get me to stop wearing it and go "natural" but I always tell him "NOT HAPPENING!" So I wanted to share my favorites! I had been telling my hubby that I was out of a few things, so today during lunch he had me meet him at Sephora....he's a good husband, he goes with me, since I don't have anyone else to go with in the middle of the day and on such short notice. So...."these are a few of my favorite things"(products) I just sang that in my head! (Sound of Music)

I've been using bare minerals for 4 years. I like it, because it doesn't make me break out like other products. I use some of their eyeshadows too, I love the colors they have, but hate that it is loose powder so the fallout from their shadows is ridiculous!

Foundation powder

I tried this as a sample, and I loved it, so today I bought it. It makes your face smooth and it makes your foundation look flawless! 


 I'm not much of a lipstick girl, I love lipglosses though, and my favorites are from Mac. Right now I have one that is called Lovechild.... I also love the bare minerals Bluxom lip plumpers, but I'm banned from those because Rick hates the tingly feeling on his lips after I kiss him!

Mac lipglass

                I love bronzers, but also love blush, So here's the best of both worlds!

Nars duo blush/bronzer

Now for the sister got me into eyeshadow, I was never an eyeshadow fan, but we love trying different looks and she told me about Urban Decay
This is my favorite palette at the moment.....I use it everyday! I'm actually going to buy this again, because I'm out of my favorite color which is the 3rd one from the right. I used it too much. :(

Urban Decay Naked Palette

I found one of their smaller palettes on sale today, this one
Urban decay Show Pony

Mainly I bought it because it has one of the shadows that is on the naked palette that I also love and I'm out of, it's called toasted (last one on the bottom)

I'm not very picky with mascara, I can go and get one at the grocery store mostly I use this one....

                ....but once in a while I splurge on mascara, the last one that I tried was this one

Mac false lash

 I liked it, but I would rather spend money on other things than mascara.

 Lastly on this list is liquid liner, I've always been afraid of liquid liner, but this is also something that my   sister taught me to use, and I really like the Sephora liquid liner

sephora liquid liner
                                                      It's easy to use, and lasts a long time. 

And before I finish.... here's a product that I'm about to bust out soon! Sunless body tanning lotion. Yes, many of them make you look orange, but this one doesn't.... and I do love to spray tan, but when I don't have time to go spray tanning, I use Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess. LOVE IT!

  1. So a year ago bestie aubs did a post called "how much does your face cost" we were between $400-$500. We spend money on makeup like crazy. AND i just got a primer sample and I am going to try it out...I don't wear foundation but I am hoping it will help my makeup stay longer. AND I wear two expensive mascaras every day...Dior makes the best best best.
