It is finally the last day of 2015 and I’m bringing my last collective haul of 2015 and potentially for the first few months of the New Year.
Spoiler Alert: One of my goals for 2016 is to take part in 2 no buys.
A no buy is basically a 30 day challenge where you simply don’t buy anything that isn’t necessary to live or contribute to your wellbeing.
So that means NO MAKEUP.
NO FAST FOOD.
Which by the way is part of my New Years Goals anyway.
I’m going to keep my subscription boxes because I wouldn’t have much to review for you all.
But before this post gets any longer, I will dedicate another post to this no buy challenge.
On to the haul:
I just want to mention that these are things that I’ve been collecting the whole month of December and nothing that I purchased all at once because
Now that Mother Nature is somewhat getting her S*** together here on the East coast my lips are running scared. This balm is perfect to help fight back against the crusty/chapped lip dilemma.
My favorite YouTuber Jackie O is always raving about his 24K Gold Mask and I figured this would be the perfect way for me to try out this mask. You get 3 .5 FL oz sized masks. I know this is small but seriously a little goes a long way. I have used all 3 and will be posting a review in the New Year.
I picked this up to test out for my #foundationfriday segment. I’ve heard great reviews on this product and the color selection is amazing.
I’m trying to get my eyeliner game together and I figured this E.L.F. product could help me out.
These next products are from NYX, I picked these up from Ulta.
Tinted Brow Mascara – Espresso
I think I seen the GlamTwinz on Youtube raving about this product. I’ve tried this out a few times during days that I don’t wear a bunch of makeup and I like it. I think I will pick up the black shade after my no buy commences.
I heard great reviews on this finishing spray so I figured I would give it a shot.
Mini review: LOVE LOVE LOVE this spray. Definitely holds my makeup in place.
I mainly picked this up for the orange shade to help correct and conceal dark spots on my face.
Jumbo Eye Pencils – Milk, Black Bean and Sparkle Leopard
Picked these up as an impulse. I’ve tried out a few eyelooks with the two outside pencils.
Next up are a few things I purchased from Mac.
First up probably my favorite lip liner every.
This baby is so pretty, like it is the perfect WOC brown. It can be worn alone, with a lipstick and a gloss.
Next I’m working on getting eyeshadow looks together and figured these two would be great additions to my eyeshadow collection.
Lastly, I picked up the Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit.
All I can say is this thing is BEAUTIFUL!
Perfect for a subtle summer bronzed look.
The remaining products I picked up from NARS.
I picked up the all time favorite, Albatross.
& baby this thing is AMAZING. At first the white powder in the pan is scary but once you warm it up and apply it to your face. LISTEN!
Just serving Xerxes.
I also picked up a Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – Caramel
I’ve heard great things about this concealer and they have all been true. The name says it all, this stuff is super creamy and blends great.
Last but certainly not least I picked up some lip products.
Swatches from L-R
Tarteist Lip Pain in Frenemy, Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Berry Naughty and Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Bow n Arrow.
I absolutely love this Vampy Color. These babies are new to the Tarte lip collection and are AMAZING.
A perfect brown-y nude.
Another berry color but in a creamy texture.
Whew…that post was super long. But I can not wait to play in these items.
I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year!
Peace and Love ❤
