Haulage



Just to let you know, I usually only have blog posts if I hauled some makeup~ This time my bro got me something from Adam Beauty. ^.^ It's going to be my early B-day present. Not that my b-day is anytime soon, but I just really wanted this before it sold out. :P 

Can you guess what I got????

*drum roll plz*











Tada~ The Visee Mercury Duo in A-6. 


My first Visee palette so I hope it doesn't disappoint.
I think that the main reason I really wanted to get this was because it came with a cream eye shadow base. I really really love those bases.

Mwa~ Check out all these pics of my new palette. hahaha

Come'on I know that you know you want to get one.


It's LE........




Then I got a Maybelline gel liner in Eggplant. It looks pretty in the jar and I will swatching it on my next post.


Yesterday I went on a shopping trip with my friend and we went to Sephora. I have been eye-ing both the MUFE high definition primer and the Bare Escentuals Eyelid Primer for the longest time ever. I finally decided that it was time to own them. hahaha

MUFE High Definition Primer: 5 Blue (Doesn't look blue at all. right?)
I wanted to either get this primer in purple or blue since the color purple is to counteract the yellow undertone and the blue to help reduce slight redness, freckles, and spots. I figured that my freckles issue was more important then my yellow undertone. Note that the blue primer does not mask the freckles. hahaha wouldn't that be great, all it does it lighten up your complexion. 
Bare Escentuals Eyelid Primer
Can you believe that I have NEVER had a eyelid primer until now? How sadd...... hehehe
I immediately opened this up and used this today. The packaging is definitely not as cute as Urban Decay's Primer Potion. However, I like how I am able to twist out the primer while not getting my applicator dirty. For me, to test out how well this primer works is by putting on my Nars Cream Eyeshadow, Corfu. Let me tell you, without primer Corfu creases on me like HELL~ Seriously, 5 minutes later, I got bits and pieces of it suck in my crease and it doesn't look attractive AT ALL. However today, I put it on with the primer and did not crease at all for the whole day. Truly Amazing~

I went to L'Occitane and didn't expect to get anything. However I found this hand cream which is the Cherry Blossom scent and I fell in love. hahaha

Yay! You're going to lOVE eyelid primer--seriously, I never use eyeshadow without it now because that's how different it'll be lol
My mother never used dept store makeup till maybe a few years ago haha she was always a drugstore gal in that respect--but then again, she always thought wearingtoo much makeup isn't good for you--sigh... XD

Awesome haul! The eyeshadow colours look so pretty!

superwoolu said...

how does the colors go on?? i like the colors of the palette!

Jenny said...

I totally agree with you about the eyelid primer! The design for the Urban Decay one is sooooo unsanitary! I tried out the Bare Escentuals Eyelid Primer and the Too Faced Insurance, but I like the Too Face more because the texture of the Bare Escentuals was more dry compared to Too Face. Since they both do wonders as to prevent creasing, I got the Too Face! You should try it too when you're done with this one!~

PinkOrchids said...

Ooo i love L'Occitane cream! Although i don't find the hand creams very effective, they still smell amazing!
