Small Makeup Haul

Okay so many small isn't the best way to describe it but I've been on a makeup spending spree lately. And what I'm about to write about are only the products I have taken pictures of, meaning it does not include my most recent purchases (Which are from Shu Uemura).

Also a small lens review after as well because I don't want to make multiple posts. The lenses I will be talking about are monthly lenses so I have already thrown them out. I don't have many photos but I did buy another two pairs (Albeit a different colour) so I will be take note to photograph some of that instead.

I got hardwood flooring in the house now and it makes a pretty good backdrop!

 Haul: Illamasqua, NARS, Anatastasia, YSL, Face Shop

To start off, Illamasqua is closing its doors in Canada. Cue the sobbing because it really is a shame. However, I do understand there is not much of a market for them here (Sephora also stopped carrying Illamasqua last year). The few Illamasqua counters left at Hudson's Bay ended up having a 40% off sale to clear out their products, so here's what I picked up:

Lipstick - Scandal, Apocalypse
Nail Varnish - Hemlock, Collide
Skin Base foundation - 6.5
Cream Pigment - Delirious
Eyeshadow - Forgiveness, Imagine, Creep

 Eyeshadows L to R: Delirious (Cream), Forgiveness, Imagine, Creep

Random lip product purchase from The Face Shop and YSL. The Face Shop one is like the YSL Glossy Stain and it's a nice pink colour. The YSL one is from their matte lipstick collection for this fall.

Anastasia Brow Wiz and Brow Gel for my blonde hair. I got these because of the double points promotion Sephora was having. I think I have enough to redeem the 500 point reward now.

The Illamasqua lipsticks here! Scandal on the left, Apocalpyse on the right.

The new NARS Audacious Lipstick collection! I'm super in love with them and I've tried pretty much most of the collection by now. I picked up these two before the testers were even out. Liz on the left, Lana on the right.

More NARS stuff. Orgasm Lip Gloss, Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base, Multi-Action Hydrating Toner.

Not pictured are products from Shu Uemura, mainly the Calligraphink Eyeliner Pen, Brow Ink, and A/I Cleansing Oil, and Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish from MAC. The eyeliner pen is the best thing that has ever happened to me by the way. Perhaps if I'm not too lazy I'll do a post on them later (But I'll probably do a small makeup look post featuring them so you'll be able to see them anyways).

Next post will probably be a lens review ;) I tried out the Revocon monthly lenses and been loving them. More on that later!
