Collective makeup haulage..(and some earrings too)

Did some hauling.......AGAIN! For the past 2 years, I've found passion in makeup more than I have been in fashion. I don't know if it's a phase I am going through but I doubt it. My sister once said "collecting makeup is like a hobby" which I do totally agree with. Just like boys love their cars and sports, girls love their makeup and fashion. I used to be the type of chick that can have like one or two eyeshadows and wear it everyday and be fine - but not anymore. Now, I have oodles and oodles of products from all different brands that I really can't justify why I need 7 different shades of gray eyeshadows. I suppose it's not so much as a "Need" as it is a "Want".

Well, my best rationalization for my shopping is that I work extremely hard and that I might as well treat myself to something nice and enjoy my youth and freedom while it's within reach. Years and years from now when I bare children and get older and older, there wouldn't really be a point to collect makeup and splurge on myself anymore so now is the time to embrace my age and beauty while it's still existent.

Right girls????

Anywhoodles, here are the products I bought recently (the video is also attached in case you wanna check that out too).

Sigma Brushes the "Complete Kit" - Shipping was super duper fast. Only 2 business days! I ordered my sister the face + eyes kit too and she also got it in 2 days! WOW! I haven't used these yet but they feel super duper soft! I really wanted the SS109 but I'm going to have to buy that separately later as it is not a must-need at the moment!

I bought three MAC lipsticks. A backup of the Viva Glam CYNDI (such a wearble red - only out for a year) and then I bought a Glaze in "Hue" and a Cremesheen in "Creme Cup". Hue is a lot like my natural lip color but it def. enhances them. Creme Cup is a pretty everyday pink with a blue undertone.
I also picked up another pigment in "Frozen White". It's more iridescent than white to me. It's described as a white with a blue duochrome which it does have a blue duochrome but the white isn't as noticeable as I want it to be. Still pretty though.
Another thing I got was a single eyeshadow in "Idol Eyes". This is a silverish eyeshadow with purple reflects. The purple is not that obvious though. It's sheer and kind of reminds me of a pearl finish as it is not that pigmented as I want it to be.
I got three VS Sparkle Eyeshadows in Fierce, 24K, and Spin. I have only tried fierce and 24k so far. They are nice to wear over another eyeshadow but not on its own in my opinion as it is not easily blendable and I had to layer it on before it could really give my eyes a "pop" of color/sparkle.
Things I got from Ulta - (ULTA is having a 40% off sale on Maybelline, Revlon, Almay & Ulta products which is why I bought some of the following).
Revlon Satin Eyeshadow in "Platinum Glimmer" & Revlon Perle Eyeshadow in "Lilac Shimmer" - these are pretty decently pigmented given they are a drugstore brand.
Maybelline dream matte powder in "Medium Beige". Haven't used this yet but I hope I did okay with picking out my shade despite my lack of knowing my own undertone color :(
I got ANOTHER backup of NYC's bronzer in sunny (which makes 3 backup's now, I heard they were being discontinued). I don't like to wear it much for contouring purposes but more on the apples of my cheeks :)
Lastly, I picked up 4 stud earrings from Icing. Now that I think about it, I def. overpaid for these in comparison to F21 jewelry. I don't know what I was thinking. These were unplanned purchases (usually I know what I'm going to buy before I buy it - I'm not really a spur-of-the moment kind of shopper). SO I just bought these on a whim despite my normal shopping behavior. They are all really cute but I think I might have to return the two on the right cause after I brought it home, I began getting "iffy" on them. You know what I mean ladies? When you buy something right away cause it looks great in the store and then you bring it home and you're like - wait , it doesn't look as great as when I first saw it?? SO yeah.......still thinking
In summary, here is the video I just uploaded if you all would like to see:

Catch ya later!

Makeup Haul & 40 Beauty Questions Tag (so overdue)

Hi People! Omg, I've been so inactive for wayyyy too long, huh? Sorry, I've had terrrrible allergies lately and was MIA because I've been traveling between San Francisco, LA, and Philadelphia. So, I've been a busy busy little bee. Anywhoodles, I have two videos that I'd like to share. The first is just a culmination of makeup stuffs that I've been accumulating. The second is the 40 Beauty Questions that I got tagged on. I actually posted this on my YT channel a while back but never got around to posting on here. Hope you lovelies enjoy:

I made the shoulder detailing on the above video. Isn't it cute? I'd like to think so! Hehe :)

And of course, Picty's for the picty lovers :-)
P.S. - I curled my hair in the below pics with the CONAIR Instant Heat Curlers that I did a video post on down below in one of my previous entries (02/24).

Til next time, beautifuls!

You all are the **BEST**!!
