I intended to do a little haul post right after I got home from San Francisco, but it ended up that life got in the way a little bit. That’s ok though, because now I have more stuff to show you!
I finally had to replace my NARS Brow Perfector. I got my first one ages ago, and I thought that sucker was going to last forever. I still love the formula on this (reviewed here) so I’m looking forward to my next year or so with it.
I’ve also been collecting a bunch of lip things, not entirely intentionally. The other day I was able to snag a mini MUFE Aqua Lip liner in Natural Beige as 100 point perk, and I’m in love! It’s one of the closest matches I’ve found to my natural lip color and it really does live up to its waterproof claim. I also picked up the Bite Beauty Contour Lip Liner a bit ago, in Nutmeg. It’s a great pink shade that goes really well under my lighter lipsticks. Sort of an older purchase (but I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it yet?) is Givenchy Le Rouge in Rouge Egerie, because I need another Le Rouge like I need a hole in my head, but there you have it. It’s red with a pinky-coral undertone, so it’s super easy to pair with the rest of my makeup. In. Love.
I’ve also been on a huge neutral eyeshadow kick lately, because have I ever not been? I got one of the new MUFE Artist Eyeshadows (in S-566) in an effort to not lose my mind and get their 30th anniversary palette. I’m not sure how effective that plan is, because this eyeshadow is very nice. It’s one of those wear-with-anything taupes, and the powder is really smooth and pigmented. I probably still won’t get the palette just because I can’t justify $250 on eyeshadow (considering the amount I already own) but it is a hell of a deal compared to buying them as singles. Burberry Storm Grey is another taupey shade that I had been lusting for since I first saw it online. The quality is exactly what you’d expect from Burberry, and it’s a perfect crease or transition color. The one I’m most excited about though is Tom Ford Nude Dip, which I feel kind of bad even mentioning because it’s been so hard to get (according to the TF website, the flagship in Chicago may still have stock though). I first saw pictures of this back in May, and decided to go ahead and reserve one at the Neiman Marcus in San Francisco while I was there. I’m really glad I did, because these colors are right up my alley – light, neutral, with a little sheen. To top it off I also got the Surratt Relevee Mascara, which I’ve been wanting ever since the SA at Barneys used it on me back in March. She described it as a tubing mascara, but it’s most definitely a fiber formula. Lashes for days, just don’t get it in your eye!
I’ve had most of these things for a while now, and so far I’m loving them all! Anything you want to see a review of first?
