Make-Up Haul

I'm beginning to get into make-up! I was never huge on make-up before because of my overly oily skin and the fear of looking like a oil painting by the end of the day. But my discovery of using Milk of Magnesia took that all away! I'm in love with make-up now that I found Milk of Magnesia to prime and mattify my face so that my make-up actually stays on for hours! I will probably do a separate review for that. But anyhow, I've been picking up quite a few things here and there these past couple of weeks to add to my little make-up stash. This post is just on the items I've purchased so far in April, and late March. They're a combination of mostly drugstore and a few high end make-up products.

From left to right
Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder- $3.00
Duo Adhesive- $6.49
NYX Lip pencils- $2.99 each
Maybelline Falsies Mascara- $5.04
MAC PeachyKeen blush- $19.50
Maybelline Colorsensational Coral Crush lipstick-$4.99
Rimmel Eyeliner- $3.14
Elf Gel liner- $3.00
MAC Saint Germain lipstick- $14.50
Elf angled eyeliner brush- $3.00
Revlon Coral Reef lipgloss- $9.49

Total (without Tax) = $78.13

Wow...Make-up is expensive and I didn't even buy a lot! I had no idea I spent that much lol..and most of them are drugstore products!

Out of all of them, my top 3 are definitely MAC's PeachyKeen blush, Maybelline's Falsies Mascara, and Revlon Coral Reef lipgloss. I feel that Peachykeen and the Coral Reef lipgloss go perfectly together...especially for Spring and Summer! I know I'll be rocking them together as a everyday look probably.

For those of you who missed out on Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday lipstick...definitely go pick up some of MAC's Saint Germain! It is the exact same color as her lipstick..just a different name (in my opinion). And its more pigmented too...Nicki's lipstick was more sheer. This is the only item I got from the Quite Cute collection...only to find out that it was part of MAC's permanent line ugh..But anyways, I love it!
