Hello Beauties, and welcome to my NY Haul :)
Little disclaimer: I know this might seem like a lot of makeup to some people but believe me, I tried to refrain myself haha
It probably doesn't look like I succeeded, but trust me, my list of products to get was humongous!!
In my defense, there were huge Sephoras on every street corner...way too many temptations! It was ridiculous ;) And don't even get me started on that gorgeous Henri Bendel shop!! It was to die for!
New York really knows how to lure makeup addicts!!
The purpose of this post is to quickly present the products that I bought, but I'm not going to do a detailed review yet. Mainly because I haven't had the time to try them all, or haven't used them enough to give you a full review.
Let the show begin :)
Marc Jacobs Daisy Rollerball
My all-time favorite perfume
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in N°01 Chantilly
Pretty decent concealer: long-wearing and light diffusing but in terms of coverage, it doesn't stand a chance against my MUFE Full Cover.
Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Granite & Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
Severely overpriced but I HAD to jump on the bandwagon...
Sephora False Lashes in Celebrity
Naturally looking false lashes that flare out at the outer corner.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light
Again, I couldn't refrain myself from following the hype but I ended up regretting it...I really don't get what this product does...Admittedly, it doesn't seem like I've picked up the right color (it's freaking mauve!!!! But I swear it didn't look like this under the freaking store lights) but still...I don't notice any particular difference, except that my skin looks more powdery...
Maybe I'm using it wrong...
The brush is super soft, qualitatively excellent and brilliant for contouring but I don't really know what to use it for since I'm not a fan of the Ambient Powder and don't usually contour my face (due to my fair skin tone, it always ends up looking like I've just traced 2 random mud lines under my cheek bones...sexy!).
Sephora Micro Smooth Blush in Fuchsia Flushed
My favorite blush of the moment!!
Silky smooth application + beautifully shimmery (not glittery, nor overly frosty) and naturally flushed pink + longevity = ♥
Tom Ford Blush in Frantic Pink
Haven't used it yet but it sure looks gorgeous in the pan!!!
Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad in Crushed Amethyst
Every makeup addict and their mother keep raving about the quality of Tom Ford eyeshadows and when you pay over 70$ for a palette, you expect it to be extraordinary, phenomenal and astonishing...Guess what? I'm not a massive fan of these shadows. I actually find them to be poorly pigmented and to be honest, they can't hold a candle to my MAC shadows...True story!
Nars Light Reflecting Setting Powder - Pressed in Translucent Crystal
My new holy grail setting powder for concealer!! It was love at first application, even though you really have to "scratch" the surface of the product to get the slightest amount of powder on the brush. Either way, it's worth it!!
Hope you enjoyed this haul.
Have a great day/night and thank you so much for reading!!
