It's like Christmas in October! Haul time!


Hey ladies!
October has ended, and I just wanted to share some of the new purchases I made within the month out side the new Chanel lippies

Just a few things... lol ^^

October was the month where Sephora's FF sale arrived and of course I took the opportunity. Most of these items are from the sale the rest are just random throughout the month

Eye Goodies

Mac Engraved: Just bought this today. I am going to give MAC eyeliners another go. First MAC eye liner I tried was smolder, hated it, made me hate MAC for years
DiorShow: I gotta give this classic a try
Lancome Virtuose: Hate this...this mascara is suppose to help give optimal curl, this de curls my lashes within seconds...do not recommend!


Mac Lippies
MAC lipsticks in Craving and Hot Tahiti
Craving: Raspberry Wine Pink/Red color ( Top)
Hot Tahiti: Wearable red when worn sheerly ( Bottom )

Fall means darker lip colors, sensual wearable wine colors are what I prefer

Truthfully these look very similar...I bought these today and 2 counters were out of Craving but I liked Hot Tahiti. The counter near my home had Craving and I bought it without really swatching both together because they were closing in 5 minutes so I grabbed em.

Love em regardless!


Eye shadows and concealer
Lancome Photogenic Concealer in Camee: Bought this way in the beginning of the month and have been using it daily. My new "go to" concealer. Currently unavailable at Lancome which is unfortunate because I like this product. Bit hard of consistency though
MAC Carbon eye shadow: Sometimes instead of liner I just apply shadow as liner to make it a bit softer
Lorac Croc Palette: I had never felt Lorac shadows before, but they are buttery smooth! I wanted the 2 colors Moonstone and Serenity but this palette had both colors for the same price with additional shades and a blush


Face Powders
Laura Mercier Mineral Finishing Powder in 1: Just to finish off my mineral make up to avoid shine
Lancome Dual Finish Powder in Matte Buff II: My current Go to Face Powder, this does not make me break out ( miracle )
I love how you can use this powder with a puff dry, or sponge dry ( makes my skin look like porcelain)
I have applied it wet also which is not bad
I just love it's versatility


Blushes
NARS Portofino Multiple: Been wanting this for a while...
NARS Sin and Illamasqua Sin: Is it some kind of industry lingo to name purple blushes, sin?

Close Up

Highlighters
Lorac #1: I plan to wear this under my BB cream to give me a *glow*
NARS O Illuminator: Pretty in 2 seconds, just dab it on and smile

Perfumes
YSL Parisienne
Been wanting this for a few months. Purchased the gift set. Described as blackberry with sandle wood. My boyfriend and I agreed it smelled like lychee

YSL... ahhh it looks so good


Swatches
Top Row (L-R) Hot Tahiti, Craving, Portofino
Lower Row ( L-R ) Illamasqua Sin, NARS Sin

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!!!
