Beauty Musings & Rogue Ramblings

Whoo hoo it’s Friday! HAUL

Leave a comment

I shop too much! Eeek… someone save my bank account please! It’s Friday and I went on a mini spree through multiple stores today, but I LOVE everything I picked up. So here we go…

Final day of ChicWeek – SEPHORA:

So, in case you don’t know, I happen to LOVE the Benefit High Beam and Sun Beam liquid enhancer-highlighters, so I decided to pick up the third offering in their “beam” collection- Moon Beam.

Check out the un-blended swatches below:

HIGH BEAM: A luminescent complexion enhancer

SUN BEAM: A golden bronze complexion highlighter

MOON BEAM: An iridescent complexion enhancer

I am a brush fiend and I couldn’t resist picking this set up, especially since the Sephora “Airbrush” brushes are my favorite line of Sephora brushes. Plus this set was a total steal for what you get!

What brushes are included (as numbered in the photo above):

  1. Airbrush Powder
  2. Airbrush Precision Foundation
  3. Airbrush Concealer
  4. Airbrush Crease
  5. Airbrush Shadow

As mentioned in my March Favorites, I am basically obsessed with the Korres Lip Butters and picked up their Wild Rose shade to round off my Korres lip butter collection.

I Love MAC:

So I swung by MAC, as I usually always do when I’m out shopping, and took home quite a few products, some from their newest collections.

From the MAC “In Extra Dimension” Collection:

A little info on the line from MAC:

Introducing a new liquid-powder formula with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face.

Not quite a cream, certainly not a liquid, but unlike any other powder product, plus it has a cooling feeling on the skin. Plus, they look so pretty in the pan – almost don’t want to use them😀

Extra Dimension Highlighter in “Whisper of Gilt” – a white-gold liquid-powder highlighter that leaves a gorgeous golden sheen.

What MAC says: A liquid-powder highlighter with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face. The cool, creamy near-fluid formula creates a luminous, well-defined finish. Wears 10 hours.

Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in “Sweet Heat” – a pinky peach champagne

What MAC says: A liquid-powder Eye Shadow with prismatic reflections in ten shimmering tints. Impact ranges from sheer crystallized light to a highly polished metallic effect. Lasts up to 6 hours.

From the MAC “Reel Sexy” Collection:

A little info on the line from MAC:

Our main feature – a cinematic drama starring Ms. Kristen McMenamy, supported by an entire cast of limited edition Dynamic Duo Eye Shadows, Nail Lacquers, Cremesheen Glass and Mineralize Skinfinish – sublime! Rave reviews all around!

Cremesheen Glass in “Star Quality” – a bright pink-orange coral

More MAC…

I was also in need of a brighter lip pencil and thanks to the amazing girl at MAC, I came home with the Pro Long Wear Lip Pencil in “What a Blast!” – a bright orange-coral that really does last!

What MAC says: A new generation of longwearing lip pencil technology. Glides on fluidly and adheres instantly. Defines the lips with an instant release of rich, saturated colour. Pro-longs the hours between re-application. Transfer proof.

I also picked up a deep blue-violet paint pot from one of their past collections – Posh Paradise.

Paint Pot in “Imaginary” – from the Posh Paradise collection

Other MAC stuff I picked up…

Some more Fix+ and a couple mascara samples.

Ray-Ban Wayfarers – check!

Now, I must say, these were not an impulse buy whatsoever – I have actually been lusting after these forever and waiting to buy these for the past 6 months plus I got them $70 off! So happy!!

Model: Ray-Ban RB2140 901/58 ORIGINAL WAYFARER (Polarized)

Fun fact: Audrey Hepburn wore 2140 Wayfarers in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Accessorizing on the cheap -thanks Old Navy:

Three pairs of uber-cute earrings for $14 – and perfect for Spring and Summer!

Oh my… that haul tired me out!  Time to go pass out in my new Ray-Banz…..zzzzzzz
