|HAUL| NYX & L.A. Colors

I'm constantly buying stuff haha. It's an addiction I have. I can't really say I'm trying too hard to break it either. Maybe one day =) This haul isn't huge, just a few things. 

I picked up two NYX matte lipsticks:

  • Shocking Pink- A very bright blue based pink. It really lives up to it's name!
  • Maison- A dark, muddy brown. I thought this would be a great nude, but it's very unnatural looking.

Both of the lipsticks have a great formula, and although they're matte, they're not drying [my opinion]. I just remembered that NYX's Soft Matte Cremes aren't drying either, they seem to have gotten the balance down pat!

I also picked up one of the new trios from L.A. Colors in Sunflower.

Sunflower includes a light gold, a coppery bronze, and more true to color bronze. I can't wait to use it in my collection!

Watch my latest haul video on YouTube!! Thanks so much for reading/watching!!!

Do you always have an idea set in your mind when you sit down to do your makeup, or do you just pick up a palette and go?

I very rarely have an idea of how I'm going to do my makeup beforehand. The only time I do, is when I'm recreating a look I saw on a blog post/YT video!!!

What about you guys?!

I use MAC primarily for my foundation/concealer/powder. I know some people think they are too expensive, but they're the only brand I've found that works. Do you usually go for high or low end makeup? Does it matter, depending on what type [foundation, powder, blush, eye shadow, etc.] of makeup it is?

New Piercing!

I don't know if you follow me on Twitter or not, if you do, you'd know I have a new piercing!! I'd been contemplating this for a while & I was going back and forth. I choose piercings over tattoos any day, I've had 4 others and only have two of those left. So yeah, I'm a needle lover!! What did I get pierced, you ask?

My Septum! I know a lot of you will refer to it as a "bull piercing" lol and that's okay because you won't be the only ones. I'm really happy with it & it didn't hurt to get it at all, it felt like a little pinch!! If you want to see me get it done, just watch the video below!!
