Makeup Haul

Listed below are beauty products I purchased over the past two weeks.  I need to stop buying makeup.  Maybe I will try to do a "project 10 pan"...

Sephora Haul #1
I ran out of my Pro Lumiere Foundation from Chanel so I decided to try something new.  I bought the Silk Cream Foundation from Laura Mercier.  I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!  I apply it with either a brush or a sponge and each time I get a flawless face.   

I ran out of my Shiseido moisturizer about three months ago and finally purchased a replacement.  The sales associate at Sephora selected this for me.  It is the Quenching Sorbet-Creme from Caudalie.  It is okay.  I do not plan on repurchasing, but it getting the job done for now.

On the right is a face cleanser I purchased on a whim.  It is the Soy Face Cleanser from Fresh.  This is okay also, but not worth the price. 

Sephora Haul #2

I went back to Sephora one week later and purchased a primer and Too Faced face palette.

The Leopard Love palette is the first item I have purchased from Two Faced.  I am very impressed.  This set is compact and perfect for every day use.  I really love the bronzer (far left) it is the perfect peach, tan color.

I LOVE this primer and I am very picky when it comes to face primers.  This is the One Step Correct from Stila.  As you can see in the picture it consists of three colors each of which "correct" your skin tone differently.  For example the green corrects redness.  I really like this primer because it evens out my skin tone and at the end of the day I do not look blotchy.

Mac Haul

I went to MAC last Saturday and picked up two items from the Surf Baby collection.

I bought My Paradise which is a peach blush with a gold flower.  A great summer color.  I wore it a few times and it looked very natural.  The gold adds a nice touch.

I have been looking for a great bronzer for a while.  The sale associate at MAC recommended this one, Solar Riche.  It gave me the sun kissed look I wanted.  I am happy with this purchase.  Hopefully I can achieve the same look when I apply it on my own.
