Haulin On Strong

Hey y'all I did some haulin this past week and I just wanted to share the stuff I got, I've been on a spree lately trying to find beautiful, good quality makeup to add to my collection, while at the same time allowing myself to test out brands other than Sacha and MAC.

My first stop was this past Saturday at NYX in Long Circular Mall, I was so happy when I got there to see they had some items on sale. I picked up one in each of the four items I wanted to bill was adding up fast :]
So I ended up with these babies:
NYX - Ultimate Pearl Eyeshadow, Pigment, Blush, Single eyeshadow
Purple Pearl, Wise Men, Copper and Smoke Mountain

Isn't it gorgeous? I definitly recommend these as a substitute for the LA Splash Eye Sparkles because they go on more smooth without creasing and the pigmentation is out of this world, unlike the LA Splash that creases like crazy!
I am also loving the jars...they look similar to the old MAC pigment jars
The Blush is beautiful, this one has shimmer which you can't see here in this pic, but on my skin tone doesn't show much color but more of a glow like a bronzer would.
This color is sooooooooooooo gorgeous and has a beautiful shimmer its a old green and reminds me of the green color in the 'She Who Dares' Mineralize Eyeshadow from the MAC Disney Collection.

On the second part of my haul this week I stopped by Wonderful World twice and picked up some more goodies:

I brought two Kleancolor Eyelashes ($15 each) in Sassy Jessie (ELS215), that's the fuller one, and Bubbly Carol (ELS202). My co-worker introduced me to these lashes and I can't wait to try them on, I have never seen them at Wonderful World before, especially the branch on Fredrick St. that I go to.

I am trying to add lashes to my makeup collection and when I saw that Wonderful World was restocking on Red Cherry Lashes again I was happy. The quality of these lashes is one I trust and they are similar to MAC lashes, especially the #217 which looks like the popular MAC #4 lashes, the MAC #4 lashes was the first pair of lashes I ever wore.

The two NYX lip gloss from Wonderful World are a definite good buy! They look gorgeous on me. I would do a separate post reviewing these two lip gloss together with swatches. I brought Deep Red #16 which is a deep burgundy colour (love it) and Red Tint #31, which is a purple color with glitter that's not huge and annoying goes on sheer.

Of course my haul from Wonderful World wouldn't be complete without nail polish :] LA Girl Disco Brights black polish.
