Lame shopping day.

So first I went to Sephora and I returning something. You know how normally Sephora's return policy you're able to return something at any time? Well I didn't have my invoice with me at the time of return & I figured it wouldn't be a big deal since normally they just give me store credit... so the cashier was helping me and when she had announced I didn't have my invoice the cashier next to her hella butt in and was like "oh I'll help her" and she wouldn't let me get store credit just an exchange and she had the worst attitude with me the whole time. So I got a brush and UDPP as an exchange and she scanned my Insider card, gave me my birthday gift & when I asked if there was still the bubble bath she responded "uh no. This is the only one we have" & made a sour face at me. Whatever. Bitch!

I went to MAC at Macys for the 188 and the lady helping me grabbed the 182. Then the 187. I pointed out where it was and she grabbed the 182 again! Then she goes "see what happens when you go on a 10 minute break?" uhhh... no, not really. I don't think I ever went on break and forgot the details of my job.

Oh and Benefit's Erase Paste sucks. I'm on a search for a decent concealer.

Typing on my sidekick sucks. Talk about killing my eye sight. Or it might have been that nap I took in the car lol.

Benefit haul.

So after my shitty experience with Benefit and their Lemon-Aid I was somehow talked into giving it another shot. Sooo, I stopped by the Benefit counter at Macy's and browsed around. As I asked for my products, the MA decided to try some things out on me. Now naturally, I dont like doing this. I dont like putting tester items on my face. But I didnt know how to say no without sounding like a jerk, so I agree'd. So put on the fake it foundation, blush, lip liner and lipstick (ughhhhh!!!) on me. She attempted to put on mascara but that's where I drew the line. I dont put on mascara (at least no ones that arent clear) and I dont care to make my eyelashes look longer of fuller. Its not like you'd notice them anyway thanks to my glasses, so why waste time.

So what did I get?!

  • Some Kind-A Gorgeous in Deep.
  • Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Skinny Jeans.
  • Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Tattle Tale.
  • Do It Daily {sample}

I havent tried the "creaseless" shadow/liner yet. But I did try the Some Kinda-A Gorgeous and I love it. It's an amazing product. I didnt think I would like it, but I do! It doesnt even feel like there's anything on your face. Which is the BEST part. I wanna go back for the Lust Duster and some more shadow/liner's but I think I'll wait on it til I actually use these. No point in buying a bunch if I'll end up hating them!

ELF haul.

So lazy me didnt bother doing this earlier, but I guess that's alright since I just made it one big haul. This includes the last 3 ELF orders I made. I also made a video on this =).

  • Studio Blush & Bronzer Compact
  • Studio Translucent Matte Powder & brush
  • Blending Sponges
  • Mineral Shimmer Mineral Glow
  • Mineral lipstick in Bare Brown
  • Studio Lip Liner & Blending Brush
  • Studio Complexion Brush
  • Studio Powder Brush {x2}
  • Studio Small Precision Brush
  • Studio Eyeliner & Shadow Stick in Pearl/Glow
  • Studio Eyeliner & Shadow Stick in Green/Moss
  • Studio Eyeliner & Shadow stick in Black/Smoke
  • Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter
  • Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Mascara in Crystal
  • Tone Correcting Concealer in Light

Whew, that was a lot to write down! So far I've used the Wet Gloss Lash since I cant really wear mascara cause of my glasses. I mean, I can but its just annoying when I do and I need something to prevent my eyelashes into falling into my eyes (which they always do). I've also used the Tone Correcting Concealer. I tried using the one from EDM and it wasnt giving me the coverage I wanted, this one however did. I tried the Eyeliner & Shade Stick in Black/Smoke but just the eyeliner part. It was really creamy but smudged a bit. I'll do a better review on it once I've used it a bit more.

Oh lame!! I forgot to include The Pineapple Mango Hand Cream. Ohh. Oh well.

Illuminations haul.

As some of you know, Illuminations is closing down. Illuminations was one of the first candle stores I ever went to (if I remember correctly, me & my younger brother accidentally stumbled on it at the Valley Fair Mall back in 99' or 00' because I was drawn to the chocolate scent coming from it) and it started my obsession with candles. Before all other obsessions I've had in my life, candles came first. And it's still going strong. It upset me to find out that last year Yankee Candle bought them out considering that I think YC sucks! Their only good collection was their Home Collection (Rice Milk!) which discontinued. And it saddens me that now they're closing down for good! So of course, I had to go a little nuts and get my hands on everything I wanted! They had a scent called "Coffee & Cream" and I couldnt find it anywhere, so I guess it was discontinued. Sometimes its a good thing I buy things without telling my bf! Haha.

  • Jar candle in Meyer Lemon
  • Jar candle in Almond Biscotti (which semi melted in my car, booo!)
  • 3 pillar candles in Ambiance Aromatherapy (my fav!)
  • 2 tin can candles in Ambiance
  • Tin can candle in Relaxation
  • Six pack of votive candles in Ambiance
  • Four pack of tea lights in Fresh Air
This isnt even all of it. I left 3 packs of floating candles in my car (probably a bad idea now that I think about it). I think there's a pillar candle there too in probably Relaxation. There was a pillar candle right across from me that I forgot to include in the picture of Relaxation, 3 other pillars hidden somewhere in my room of Ambiance/Relaxation and one 6 pack votive in Relaxation.

Ambiance is my favorite scent from Illuminations. Its a mix of Orange & Lemongrass and it smells kinda like Starburst. Seriously, my whole room smells like it right now haha its extremely heavenly!

Goodbye Illuminations, you will be greatly missed.

MAC SugarShot haul.

I went a little overboard with this collection, at least a little more than I expected to...

  • Eyeshadow in Aquavert.
  • MSF in Perfect Topping.
  • Shadestick in Lemon Chiffon.
  • Lipglass in Consume Me {x2}.
  • Lipglass in Just Dessert.
  • Lipglass in Triple Yum.
  • Lipstick in Lollipop Loving.

I actually did my first haul video on this collection. I'll be posting it on my youtube shortly.

I was excited to get the Lemon Chiffon Shadestick because Lemon Chiffon just so happens to be my favorite ice cream flavor!

I was going to get the Sugar Shot and the Stars & Rockets eyeshadows but I found out they're in the permanent collection so I didnt. I decided to instead buy all of the permanent collection eyeshadows (that I want) in refill form instead of buying them with the bulky packaging. I know I could depot them and back-to-MAC them but I really dont want to run the risk of messing them up.

Everyday Minerals haul.

Tanya totally talked me into doing this!!!! Haha. Its okay, it was worth it!

  • Eyeshadow in Leaps and Bounces
  • Eyeshadow in Butterfly Kisses
  • Eyeshadow in Dandelions
  • Blush in Peach Tree
  • Blush in Waffle Cone
  • Original Glo Foundation in Medium Beige
  • Original Glo Foundation in Medium Tan
  • Original Glow Foundation in Buttered Tan
  • Concealer in Pearl Beige
  • Eyeshadow brush

I'm still upset they took out the 10 sample eyeshadow kit! GRRR. I really liked how soft the eyeshadow brush is, I'm thinking of buying more (or other brushes as well) except I just made a huge ELF haul with a bunch of brushes from their Studio Collection (damn 60% off). I dont know how I feel about Waffle Cone yet but I loveeee Peach Tree!
