Makeup Haul: April

makeup haul

Beauty has completely taken over my life! No matter how hard I try I can’t seem to stay out of Sephora! Here are a few things I picked up this month

Benefit Porefessional Primer: Now I’m not the biggest fan of primers, I feel like sometimes they can be that part of makeup that I can “live without”. However recently, I’ve been noticing dry patches on my skin and it was starting to cause my makeup to flake off( I know..grosssss). So I wanted to get a primer that would help moisturize, hide my pores, and make my makeup apply smoother. Full Review on this coming soon!

Becca Liquid Highlighter( Topaz): So I decided to give Becca another try. I was not a fan of the powder version of this highlighter, but when I saw Jaclyn Hill (what up girl!) do a review on the liquid version in Opal, I just had to try it! Obviously I went with the topaz color since that’s better for my skin tone and so far I’m loving it. It gives a very natural dewy glow, way better than the overly glitter powder version. Love Love Love!

Mac Skinfinish (Soft and Gentle): While we are on the topic of highlighters I have to mention this new favorite of mine. After my disaster with the powder becca highlighter, I quickly looked for another option and landed on this GORGEOUS babe. It is the perfect amount of shine and glitter and it lasts all day! Amanda got one too!

Mac Blush( Raizen):. It took me a couple times in Mac before I actually purchased this. I had seen it on youtube and loved it but for whatever reason when I swatched it; it just didn’t look right( don’t you hate when that happens!?). I finally decided to apply it on my face and  walked out the store so I could get better lighting and once I did that I instantly bought it. I naturally have reddish-brown undertones and thought this blush wouldn’t work for me, but It makes my skin look so rich and deep. For days, I want a deep matte look that brings out the natural colors of my skin tone then this is my go to.

Mac Paint Pot in( Painterly): Another Mac product! Shocker! I picked this up because once again I saw it in a youtube video (the story of my life). I have been using my NYX jumbo pencil in milk and It was great but ever since I purchased the tartelette pallete I wanted a primer that complimented those colors better. It’s a light pink/mauve color and it’s extremely creamy. I may go back and purchase some Mac paint pots in different colors!

ABH Contour Kit ( Deep): I did a full review on this here and so far I’m loving it!

That’s all for this month. I’ve been eyeing these Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks so I’m thinking of picking those up soon! Tweet me which ones you think I should get!
