Hauling! NYX

I have been hauling a lot over the past 2 months. I purchased quite a few things from the brands NYX, MAC, BH cosmetics, Coastal Scents, and Napolean Perdis. I have decided to break the Hauls up into the individual brands so that I can post in depth about each group of items. I'm gonna start with my items from the brand NYX. NYX is a low end brand that can be found for reasonable prices in beauty supply stores or online. The eyeshadows and blushes offer great pigmentation for the price. This brand is great for makeup beginners who don't have a lot of money to invest in products.
I purchased the Box of Smokey Look Collection Palette from HauteLook at a great price. Regular price is $22.00 I got it from HauteLook for $13.00. The palette contains eye shadows to create gray smokey eyes, purple smokey eyes, bronze smokey eyes, and natural smokey eyes. It also contains 3 blushes, contour, highlight and bronzer powder, concealers, lip glosses, 12 glitter creams and 1 black eyeliner.
I purchased the long pencils from Cherry Culture for $1.99 each and the short pencils from my local beauty supply for the same price. I have the colors Black, Dark Brown, White, Caberet, Nude, Pinky, Coral, and Orange.
Here are some swatches
Also I purchased 11 round lipsticks for $2.99 each I depotted them and put them in these clear containers The colors are Peach Bellini, Chloe, Hot Pink, Pink Lyric, Baby Pink
Pure Nude, Tea
Medusa, Pure Red, Hebe, Helio
I purchased a Black Jumbo eye pencil from Cherry Culture for $3.50 and a Hot Pink one from my local beauty supply store for $3.99 I purchased these to use a bases.
Also I purchased the white eyeshadow base from Sears it was far too expensive there and I should have just got it from Cherry Culture when I got my other items. I love the white base it really makes colors pop. Those are all of the NYX items I picked up. Next post I will show the MAC items that I picked up so check back for that post. Thanks for reading gorgeous Gals please feel free to comment or ask any questions below.

Amazing Deals

Hey Gorgeous Gals I'm back to let you know about a couple of Amazing Deals Ive discovered this week.
The first deal is offered a new favorite site of mine Haute Look. I love this site and check it out everyday from the Android app on my phone. Yesterday I went to go take a look at the deals being offered and was so excited to see Napoleon Perdis makeup. Napoleon Perdis is an Australian Makeup artist with his own high end makeup brand. I've heard some good things about the makeup so I was excited to see that I could try it at a discounted price. I couldn't resist and I purchased the Luxe All Night Palette which has very bright eyeshadows normally $49 I purchased it for $25 ( a 49% savings!). It includes 4 blushes 4 eyeshadows and 4 lip glosses. First pic is of the palette I snagged can't wait for it to come.

Here's my link to join the site please click and join when anyone use's my link to join I'm eligible for a $10 credit! Haute Look Link Click Me
The second deal is from BH Cosmetics remember that really popular 88 eyeshadow palette that you've seen all over YouTube well they sell it and at a better price then the other seller everyone gets it from. They also sell brushes, Lip glosses, and other makeup bits. Right now they are having a Mid Year Sale and the palettes are at an awesome discount. I would love to get the 88 color Palette in Matte ( I'm really into Matte shadows lately) originally $18.95 for just $10.42!

I have a little mini haul post coming up I couldn't resist that NYX sale that Haute Look had and I purchased a palette. I hope you Gorgeous Gals found this post helpful. Please feel free to comment or ask any Questions.

Amazing Deals

Ladies if you didn't know already let me tell you now I love a good deal. I received word of some awesome deals today and I just had to share.

First up is Madame Madeline
This is an absolutely awesome site that sells faux lashes. When I found this site it was like I had died and gone to lash heaven the selection is huge and the prices are really good even before the sales and promos that they run quite frequently. Well currently they are running a promo for %15 off your order just enter the promo code COMPACT at checkout. This promotion will end on June 4th so Ladies take advantage I know I will be stocking up on my beloved Demi Wispies!

Next I heard about a site called Haute Look
on my favorite past time Youtube where you can get really great discounts on name brand goods. You do have to join the site to take advantage of the deals but there is absolutely no obligation to buy anything. You will be sent emails with the days sale events, new deals are added each day for different things like shoes from a certain designer, or makeup from a certain brand. The only draw back is that no doubt you will see something that you just have to have everyday. I received my Today's Events email and saw that there were deals available on NYX! I have a few of the shade sticks and I love the lip glosses that I have tried but I've been wanting to they their shadows and this is the perfect time for me to do it. They have a huge palette with - 36 Eyeshadows- Highlight & Contour Powder - 2 Dual-Sided Bronzers - 5 Blushes - 5 Lip colors - Includes applicator brushes and mirror that normally sells for $30 for just $18 that's 40% off
Also if join using my link I get a $10 credit when you make your first purchase. Here's my link

Collective Haul Sleek Makeup, MAC, and Ardell

I've been picking up a few things here and there over the past couple months and wanted to share. I'll start with the nail colors first I love to stop and pick up a pretty polish when I'm at the drugstore but I rarely find the time to actually polish my nails lately. I'm going to resolve to actually polish my nails this week. But anyway here is what I picked up
From left to right: Neon Pink Love & Beauty by Forever21 $2.80, Porcelian Party by Maybelline Color Show about $2, Tart Deco by Essie $8.00

Next is my order from Sleek they are a UK Drugstore brand I keep seeing the eyeshadow palettes used on youtube tutorials so I wanted to try them for myself.

I ordered 1 Blush color "Life's a Peach" a beautiful peach color $6.50, An eyeshadow palette in "Oh So Special" $10.50, and a lipstick in the color Fuchsia A beautiful blue based pink $6.00 I love this color.

Next Items I got were lashes the first ones I ordered from Pinky Paradise they are a Japanese brand called I love matsuge. I ordered bottom lashes in the syle Dolphin Eye the box contains 5 sets for $19.99, I picked up 2 boxes of Ardell Wispies from Target (but I lost one uggh) $3.89 each, and I ordered 6 boxes of Ardell Demi Wispies from Madame Madeline they were having a sale on them they were 2.48 each then I had a 10% coupon code KSHARE which brought them down to just $2.24 a set! That's a pretty awesome deal I just started wearing Demi Wispies and I LOVE them.

I picked up two new lippies I didn't even go to the mall to visit Mac I stopped by Nordstrom for shoes sadly I didn't find any shoes I liked but the MAC counter was close by. As soon as I laid eyes on this color I knew I had to have it the girl behind the counter told me there were only 2 left (lucky me) the name of the color is Reel Sexy from the collection of the same name $14.50, The next one is a Wet and Wild lip color I bought on a whim because it was on sale for just $1.00 unfortunately there is no number or name on the tube. it's a pale pastel pink that looks slightly lavender and it looks horrible on me so Im lucky it was just $1 lol, the last one is the Sleek lippie in fuchsia I just took another pic of it.
Swatches left to right: MAC Reel Sexy, Wet and Wild, Sleek Fuchsia
The last item I purchased at Walmart and I was so surprised to find these there they're brush guards. I've been looking for these for a while to keep my makeup brushes in nice shape after I wash them. Unfortunately I don't remember how much I paid for them and I can't find them on the Wal Mart website.
Thanks for checking out my Haul Gorgeous Gals and please feel free to comment or ask questions.

Small Haul Back to Mac and Lime Crime

I recently discovered that I could Back to MAC the depotted eyeshadow containers I had. For anyone that doesn't know Back to MAc is a recycling program where you can return your empty plastic containers to your Mac Counter for a freebie lipstick. For every 6 empties you turn in you get 1 lipstick I had 18 empties so I got 3 Lipsticks! From Left to Right In the pics Creme D'nude which is a Cream Sheen formula lipstick in a pretty nude color (I have been wanting this for a while) Vegas Volt which is an awesome Orangey pink Coral (I can't even describe it I bought it on a whim), and Chatterbox A bright medium pink. That's all I got from MAC the last lipstick I got is from Lime Crime In the Color Contessa Fluorescent It's a a bright gorgeous pink with a blue undertone. I was a little hesitant at first because the color is so bright but I love it.

Swatches are from Left to right Creame D'Nude, Vegas Volt, Chatterbox, Countessa Fluorescent.

So Far my Favorites are Vegas Volt, and Countessa Fluorescent they look awesome on and work with my skin tone. The others I will have to work a little bit with but I'm a firm believer that you can make any color work for you there are multiple things you can do like add a lipliner, put a gloss on top, or blot.

Hope You Gorgeous Gals enjoyed my Haul Follow me and please feel free to comment or ask any questions

Most of my items have arrived and I had such a good time opening up all of my packages. I took photos of my gets to show you Beautiful Gals I uploaded the photos to fotobucket so that I could set the sizes but now the site isn't letting me edit some of the pics for some reason. I hope the pics look okay

First here are the things I purchased from Urban Decay

From left to right:
Book of Shadows IV this item was too good a deal to pass up it was listed as $44 on the site but there is a $15 off promo code this brings the price to just $29! The promo code is SEVENTEEN11

 Fun Palette from the Feminine, Dangerous Fun collection on sale for $16

Afterglow Glide on Cheek tint in  Quickie $24

Surreal Skin Mineral makeup in Trippy  $31

Sparkling Lickable body powder in Cocoa on sale for $9

More pics

The next item is from Coastal Scents. I ordered the 22 piece brush set. The set comes in a faux leather brush roll. and I also received a free bumper sticker that says Makeup Addict I love it :D

22 piece Brush Set $34.95 after promo code item was $24.81!

I wanted new storage something that looks sleek I stumbled across these drawer units on youtube I compared the prices on a couple of sites and decided to order from Organize-It because they offered the lowest price. I ordered 4 One did arrive cracked but I called Customer Service and they did agree to send another one to me right away. I hope this one Arrives in good condition.

Clear 3 Drawer units with chrome knobs $11.99 each
I found a promo code %12 off orders $50 or more just the drawers weren't enough to get the discount so I also ordered a pack of Sqeezit tube squeezers for 2.99 this brought the total to 44.84. In case anyone wants the promo code it's EM8845

I also needed a new item for storing my cotton buds and cotton pads I made a trip to one of my favorite stores Ikea. I didn't find anything I liked in the bathroom section but I found something right away in the kitchen section I believe these jars are actually meant to store food but they are just the right size for what I needed.

2 Kitchen storage Jars $3.99 each

That's what I've received so far. I still have one more order coming with my lenses and lashes. I will post that up as soon as it arrives. I will be posting reviews on these items as well after I have a chance to use them. If anyone has any questions or comments feel free to add them. Bye Bye Gorgeous Gals
