Makeup Haul!

I've been suffering from insomnia this past week. One day I couldn't sleep until 6 am. I guess I am stressing out towards my graduation and finding a job without realizing it. 
I did some shopping, and this hauls is a collective haul from several shopping trips.

I purchased this bare mineral kits mainly for its multi-tasking summer bisque powder because it really gives amazing coverage for a powder concealer. I've heard good things about Bare Escentuals makup, but I've never really tried it except for its powder concealer. It claims to be makeup that you can sleep on. You're not supposed to though =P
 You get 5 products and 2 brushes for only $20, so I think it's a really good bargain.
Quick tip: Save some money by shopping makeup products in kits. They usually come in cheaper overall price, and you get to try new stuff too!

This is another thing that really saves me some dollars. I've been eyeing this product since emilynoel83 mentioned it on her video, but it is so expensive. It costs about $26 for a 0.2 oz pot. This one comes in 0.11 oz pot and costs $10 at Ulta. If you buy two, you save $8 and get more product. It only comes in medium, which I guess fits more skin tone.  
It does a great job in concealing my dark undereye circles - thanks to my insomnia.

Love this powder foundation!! It gives you amazing coverage for a powder product. When you wear it alone, it does even out your skin tone if you have any discoloration. Make sure you have the right shade because it's really rich and thick product.
It also fulfills to what it claims it to give - stay matte bu not flat.

CoverGirl Eyeshadow Quad - Drama Eyes
I got this because, again, emilynoel83 mentions this palette to be one of her favorites of all time. I watched her bridal tutorial video using this palette, and I really like it. The eyeshadows are pigmented, and they blend really easily. They're not flaky or anything.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick

I picked out two Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks. I love this line because it has so many color choices. Look at the color gleam! Pretty coral color for spring/summer time. In terms of staying power, it stays pretty much as a normal lipstick can be. The color does fade over time, but it stays on your lips if you don't rub it off or eat/drink anything like that. Pretty common sense =P

NYX Slide on Eye Pencil in Brown Perfection and Jet Black
I love that they don't smudge. I haven't tested them on my actual makeup yet because I want to finish my maybelline master drama first. I did swatch them on the back of my hand, waited a little till they dry because they are creamy in texture, and rub them off. They didn't smudge, which is a yes yes for eyeliners =D

CoverGirl Cheekers

Love them. Affordable and nice colors. Brick rose gives you a "barely-there-blushed" look, and Sierra Sands has deeper tone to it and gives you sun-kissed look. They look really natural, too. 

Benefit the porefessional
Benefit Hervana blush
Benefit chacha tint - liquid blush and lip color
Benefit Bad gal lash mascara

I got the Benefit Hervana blush at Ulta. Ulta was having a deal - if you purchase any Benefit product for $25 or more, you get 3 deluxe samples.
I haven't tried any of it yet, but I've heard great things about them especially the chacha tint. So excited to try it out!

Laura Geller the real deal concealer serious coverage - medium
Two words: Amazing Coverage! 
As long as you have the right shade, that is. 
Laura Geller has background of stage makeup, so she knows what she's doing =)
It comes in 5 shades - fair, light, medium, medium/deep, deep.
