Beauty Haul - 8/27/2012

Hey everyone! I can finally take a break and blog again. Yay! I was caught up with interviews, 4 in one week! So it was pretty crazy. I hope to hear the news by this week, so yeah. Wait and see. 
While waiting, let's just talk beauty again. I've done several shopping trips just to ease my mind a little bit, and I'm really happy with what I've got. 

tokidoki is being discotinued really soon. How sad. The brand has been working together with Sephora for about two years now, and they're now being discontinued. I know tokidoki for its unique and adorable printed packaging. I've never tried any of the makeup products before. They were discounted up to 60%, and I knew they were up for grabs. 

The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is great. This shade is a bronze-y tannish pearlish color. Haha. It's creamy and not chalky at all.

When I saw this adorable brush set was also on sale, I didn't think twice. The bristle is really soft, and they're good quality. Cute, ei?

Another good find from tokidoki. It's basically a tinted lip balm, but it should last longer than usual tinted lip balms.

As you may know by now, I'm kinda a lipstick fanatic. Not really, but kind of. The neutral ones I got because of pixi2woo. Her Kim Kadarshian makeup tutorial is gorgeus, by the way. She is gorgeous =).

I'm a sucker for neutral makeup, and these gorgeous shades are must-haves. They're inexpesive and the pigmentation is great. I've heard great things of the particular "Walking of Eggshells" trio by Wet 'N Wild, and I never got it because I think I got everything I needed from the Naked palette. But they're just great shadows and I had coupon! 
Maybelline just launched 8 additional shades to its Color Tattoo cream shadow collection, but they're limited edition. I'm finally able to grab one called Barely Beige after visiting 4 different stores. I love this particular cream shadow because the lasting power is amazing. I swatched it on the back of my hand, and when I went wash my hands, the color just didn't budge. It's amazing. It's a great base for powder shadow too.

This is the thing that I'm most excited about. I got this from Amazon, it was cheaper by $5 or so compared to getting it from theBalm website or This palette offers a different color variation of neutrals. Love love love!

I've heard great things about the lashblast mascara, and since my tarte mascara is about to be out of job after 6 months, I'm now about to try it myself. I picked up this limited edition packaging to support the olympic. 
The maybelline one is good for lower lashes because the brush is so tiny that it can get each of your lower lashes perfectly. At least that's what I've heard. I obviously haven't opened and tried it myself.

Maybelline Lash Discovery waterproof mascara- very black
I love this velcro rollers because they grab my hairs and have built-in clips to just hold my hair from falling down my face, especially my bangs. I now use this all the time when I'm at home to keep my bangs look nice and sided =P
Vidal Sassoon Self-Holding Sure Grip Rollers 

I got this pearl bracelet from Forever 21. Forever 21 makes inexpensive jewelries without looking cheap. Well, some of them do look cheap, but you mostly they are amazingly goo quality. 
I think this bracelet is perfect for formal occasion like a wedding.

♥ I went to Great America last Saturday. It was really fun!
♥ I'm now waiting for a good news regarding my job interview. Way to be confident! 


  1. I think you got some great stuff! I am wearing the Barely Beige eye tattoo with Walking on Eyeshells trio on top. I think you can get a similar look with Naked palette's Virgin, smog and sin but there is just something about the wnw that I love so much! Bad to the Bronze is my fave eye tattoo from the permanent line and I can wear it on its own without creasing- it's like magic! I definitely want the lash discovery mascara and the nude'tude palette. I'm getting those two next time I see a good deal!

  2. Thank you for the tips, Cristina! Will sure to try it out =)
    I'm also impressed with the lasting power of the maybelline color tattoo. They don't smudge a bit! Finally, great cream shadow from the drugstore.
