MAC & Sephora Haul

Hey Beauty Fanatics!

What a day! I took a trip to MAC and Sephora today with a good friend of mine. She was so sweet as to help me pick out stuff for my kit. By the way, for those of you that are beauty insider members, don't forget to use your 15% off coupon. It expires on April 21st, so hurry in to your closest Sephora or order online. It's a great time to pick up those things you've been holding off on.

Here's what I got from Sephora:

Evian Facial Spray $11 - Pack of 2, Natural Mineral Water, Moisturizes & revitalizes skin, travel size is great for carrying in bag

Urban Decay Primer Potion $16-Eyeshadow Primer, helps eyeshadow colors to stay vibrant, last long, & avoid creasing

Sephora Color Play Pallette $22-Assortment of Spring & Summer Shades, 36 eyeshadows, 12 lip glosses, 3 blushes, bronzer, 3 applicators

Benefit BADgal Lash Mascara (Free Deluxe Sample w/ 100 Beauty Insider Points)-described to be "...full of "BAD-itude!" The rich, sexy formula and oversized brush build thick, beautiful and bodacious lashes.."

Smashbox Original Primer $36-Sephora's best selling face primer, used over moisturizer and under foundation; helps application of foundation to be smooth and help foundation last, contains a blend of vitamins and antioxidants to protect skin while filling in lines and pores

NARS Orgasm Blush $25-Staple in every makeup artist's kit, "...peachy-pink blush, with hints of gold shimmer, is a makeup artist and beauty editor favorite. Made to emulate an, uh hum, afterglow, this universally flattering shade imparts a sexy pink flush...", GOTTA LOVE IT!!!! , pairs well with NARS Laguna Bronzer, said to show up on most skintones

At MAC I got some brushes that I really love to use for myself. As many times as I've tried to find dupes for my MAC brushes, I always end up back at MAC. They seem to just make application and blending so much easier. Anyway, here's what I got:

From Left to Right:
224-Fluffy Blending Brush, I use it to apply/blend color, as a crease brush, contour nose, dust powder on undereye area to set concealer, apply highlight color above cheekbones and to brow area
217-Stiff Blending Brush, I use it to apply/blend color to crease, apply/blend paint pots to lid, I love this brush soooo much, I had to get 2 more!!!!!, this brush works especially well for those with small lids (asian eyes)
187-Stippling Face Brush, I will use it to apply & blend liquid foundation & blush
109-Small Contour Brush, I will use it to contour cheeks, apply highlight, and apply/blend foundation
190-Foundation Brush, I use this to apply foundation & concealer to large areas
As you can imagine, I wanted to buy EVERYTHING in sight at both stores, but I had to control myself and focus on buying stuff to put in my kit. Oooohhhh...that was so hard, but I'm extremely proud of myself! Yay, Leilani!!!!!!
I am so excited to practice using all these fun things on people!!!!!
Let me know what you think about these products and if there are any others that you LOVE and suggest!
Have a fantastic weekend!
Leilani :P
