Collective Haul: MAC, YSL, Shimmer Twins, Too Faced, and More

Hey guys! I haven't done a haul in a while. I got caught up in swatches and eye looks! Here is some of the things I bought in the last two months. I won't really have swatches (except for the MAC stuff because it is LE) but be sure that I will have separate reviews/swatches.

1. MAC 'Heroine' lipstick (MAC Reel Sexy collection)
Because I totally need another purple lipstick! But no, I love this shade. This is what I wanted 'Up the Amp' to be. It is a grape-purple! So pretty ♥

 I apologize for the terrible lip swatch, but it will give you an idea of what it looks like in case you wanted to get this color. I am MAC NC20-25 for reference. The swatch is one sheer coat without lip balm or lip liner (as I am sure you can tell!)

2. MAC 'Whisper of Gilt' Extra Dimension Skinfinish (Extra Dimension collection)
I absolutely love my Estee Lauder Modern Mercury highlighter, and this is similar to it but lighter and more gold. I hear that Superb is very close to the ES Modern Mercury so I wanted to get one that was a little different from what I already have. Glorify is so pretty but much too dark for me.

 3. MAC 'Vegas Volt' Lipstick (B2M so it was free~)
Beautiful coral! It is not too bold, and it actually is rather wearable for a brighter coral.

4.MAC 'Angel' Lipstick (B2M so it was free~)
I have already owned this before. It is my perfect, everyday pink shade!
5. MAC 'Force of Love' Lipstick
I don't think you can find this anymore, but this is a gorgeous briiiight pink-toned coral. I am currently giving one away, and you can enter my giveaway HERE.

6. YSL Rouge Volupte Pearle #112 'Spellbinding Violet'
I have wanted to try another YSL lipstick for a while, and I finally settled on this one. It is a gorgeous shimmery plum.

7. Shimmer Twins Treasure Lashes 'Jaime' (from
Um, these are awesome? That is pretty much my justification for buying these ;P

8. Too Faced Eyeshadow 'Poison Orchid'
I have been eyeing this for soooooo long! I took advantage of the Sephora Chic week to get this.
9. Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Liner 'Perversion'
Although I like my Dolly Wink pencil liner, I was not 100% happy with it. I heard they made Perversion into a permanent shade so I HAD to get it. It did not disappoint. It is the blackest black I have seen.

10.Revlon Lip Butters in  'Gumdrop', 'Candy Apple', and 'Cremesicle'
11. Maybelline Color Tattoo 'Tenacious Teal'
I am trying to complete my collection of all of these. This is such a bright and pretty teal!
12. Maybelline Illegal Length mascara
I have already used this for two weeks or so. I  have liked it so far. We shall see how I continue to like it.
13. ELF Brushes
I stocked up on some of the ELF brushes. I have loved my eye Contour Brush, so I had to get a backup. I also bought the eyeliner brush and the eyeshadow brush. These are cheap and great quality!

So yup, there is a pretty big haul. Keep in mind that this was purchase in the span of two months or so. I also B2M for two of the lipsticks. But yes, I hope you enjoyed. I will have reviews for the lippies and the other products so stay tuned :)

Is there any product shown that you are particularly interested in?


  1. oh my, everything looks so fab!
    link for those gorgeous lashes, please? :)

    1. Sure thing :)

  2. I got Whisper of Gilt too and love it too! I actually ordered it (and Superb) from Macy's online earlier this week but went to MAC on Thursday morning to grab another Whisper of Gilt because I was too impatient for my package :x It's not too horrible having 2 of them though, since it's sold out on the MAC website!

    1. Hehe! That is awesome! No bad thing in having two. You can always have one as a backup, sell it, or have a giveaway :D
