I don't think I could call my blog a beauty blog without a beauty haul every once and awhile.  So here is my first inaugural haul.  Let me know if you like posts like this and I'll keep them coming.   

      Every beauty guru on YouTube, magazine, and beauty blog raves about Benefit's They're Real mascara.  I don't usually shell out $23 dollars for mascara but I decided to splurge a little and see what all the hype was about.  Since being sick I decided to go out bare face and immediately put the mascara on once I got in the car.....MIND BLOWN!  I have never seen so much length and volume AND curl at the same time.  My loyalty will now lie with Benefit cosmetics for my mascara.  
      These eyeshadows are a mashup of cream and loose powder eyeshadow that creates the smoothest texture.  The color pay off is incredible but you need a light hand when applying the darker shades for daytime looks. 
       Brown eyeliner is usually a staple in every girl's makeup collection but I surprisingly have never owned one.  So i decided to pick up a NYX one in dark brown.  I love NYX because they are good quality at a great price! 
       Even though I live in LA and the weather doesn't get cold in Minnesota terms, but my hands and especially my cuticles get chapped very quickly.  This apricot cuticle oil is to be applied 2 times a day (morning and night) around the cuticles and massaged in.  It leaves your nails looking manicure fresh and hydrated. 
       Revlon lipglosses always have great color pay off and they aren't too sticky.  Bellini is the perfect nude pink shade that can be paired with almost any pink and nude lipstick.  It's a staple in my makeup bag. 
7. NYX Eyeshadow Triple Eye Shadows for Sexy Eyes Only! in TS 12 - $9.59 $3.99
       No link for this one because sadly NYX's eyeshadow triplets are being discontinued.  Not sure why but I am sad to see them go.  Head down to your local ULTA and snatch them up before they are gone and at the price of $3.99 you really have no excuse.
