Collective Haul #1

It has been almost a month, since my last blog post! I have just been extremely busy with school and I'm still am with exams and my upcoming graduation. Within the past month I have been accumulating quite a bit of new makeup. I did not get all of these items all at once! I have never done a collective haul post and I wanted to post something up, so I will do this post today! This will be a quick post and I will not be going very in-depth with the products. 

Longchamp Le Pliage Cosmetic Bag - I got this very lovely makeup bag in a swap and I really do love it! The material is so nice and I love how it is the perfect size to fit into my bag! It is small enough to go inside a purse, but big enough to hold quite a lot of makeup.

Wet n' Wild Wild Shine Nail Polish in Dreamy Poppy - The perfect Summer nail polish! The nail polish is a very fun bright hot pink that is absolutely perfect for summer and it was only a $1. 

MAC High Tea Lipstick - I went into MAC and did not expect to leave with anything at all, since I wasn't really looking for anything new or specific at that time. I tried on MAC High Tea and I love it so much! Before I tried MAC High Tea, I really did thought I was going to hate it because I thought it would look frosty on my lips. However, it is the perfect sheer, glowy,  and glossy pink nude lipstick ever! It looks like the perfect nude on my lips for Summer. I am in love with this lipstick! I am so glad I gave this a try.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Demure - Demure is just a very lovely and sophsticated mid-tone peach lipstick.

Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lipstick in Just Whisper - Again, a lovely nude lipstick! I love the packaging! It reminds me of the Shu Uemura lipsticks packaging and the formula is so creamy and moisturizing. The nude shade is very lovely on my lips and very similar to MAC Blankety.

NYX HD Studio Foundation in 02 Soft Beige - I got this in a swap on a whim and I must say that I am really impressive! I think I may even love this more than by MUFE HD Foundation, because it does give more coverage and have better oil control. Great foundation and photographs very well!

Liole Water Drop BB Cream - This BB cream is very lightweight and gives a dewy finish. I really like this BB cream, but I don't love it, since the coverage is very light and it has no oil control. However, I do like it on days where I want very light makeup.

Dior Diorsnow UV Shield BB Cream - Yes, this is the BB cream endorsed by Girl's Generation (SNSD), however that is not the reason why I got it! I'm still testing it out, but so far it has very good coverage, feels nice on the skin, and it creates a flawless finish. I haven't tried this BB cream with flash photography yet, but I wouldn't recommend it, since it has a very high SPF of 50.

Revlon Photoready Face Primer - I have tried quite a few primers and I must say that this primer is one of my favorite primers ever, if not my favorite of all time! The only other face primers that I love is MUFE HD Primer and Smashbox Photofinish Light Primer. I love the packaging, I love the amount of product you get, I love the "dry" formula, I love the oil control it gives, and I love that it really does blur out fine lines or imperfections.

Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in #2 - I really wanted to love this, but I don't. I just like it. I love the peachy tone in the concealer that corrects by dark circles, however I don't like the fact that it just does not last at all! I think the product is extremely too creamy and it just does not set on the skin (even with powder), so it moves around and does not last on the skin.

Dior Essential Bronzing Powder in 010 - I really like this bronzer for the upcoming Summer and I love that is not too dark or muddy. It is the perfect bronzer shade to just make me look like I have a healthy and natural bronze glow.

E.L.F. Studio Blush in Passion Pink - The E.L.F. Studio blushes are quite sheer, but since this shade of blush is such an intense bright pink, it translates very well on the cheeks and is not so overwhelming. Just a very soft bright pink on the cheeks.
