Collective Haul!

Hello lovelies! :)
Today I have a bit of a picture heavy post for you guys! It's just a mishmash of some things that I've picked up from Ulta, Rite Aid, Target and various other stores. Ok! Let's get into the haulage.

Ok, so yes the packaging on these lip balms are adorable but, I really do love the formulation! They are by far my favorite, ever. So my Summer Fruit one was running a little bit low recently so I purchased the Strawberry Sorbet thinking I'd be good for another couple of months. Well little did I know I'd end up at Target 6 days later. I swear, I have been searching for the Alice in Wonderland collection everywhere and they only had 3 left at my target so yeah, you know I bought some! No shame.

This may seem like sort of a random purchase because honestly, how often am I going to wear glitter? But I have a reason! The show that I'm currently in is an adaptation of A Midsummer's Night Dream and I'm playing Titania. If you are familiar with that story, you would know she is the fairy queen. And what fairy queen doesn't wear glitter? I mean... seriously. But I've actually found a way to incorporate them into my everyday makeup routine! There will be a post on that soon. :)
More glitter? Yes. I really haven't been wearing much eye shadow lately so I like to spice up my eyeliner to make my look a bit more interesting!
Guys... I'm in love. This is my absolute favorite new mascara combination. Wow. Amazing. 
I also ran out of my Revlon Photo Ready Primer and decided I wanted to venture out and try a different drugstore face primer this time. Now, I haven't been using this long enough to be able to get a sense if I really  like it or not. But I'll let you know!
Aside from the creepy guy on the front, I love this!<3 I've been using the "Correct" and "Brighten" a lot lately. I did use the "Cover" for a little while right after I got this, but it's definitely too dark for my skin right now so I'll definitely be saving that one for next summer!
Don't judge me? Basically the whole reason I got this was for the really big, nice mirror. I needed a good handheld mirror for when I'm putting my eye makeup on! I obviously am going to use the powder too because my current powder is running a little low, but I really, really love this mirror... :)
I'm not exactly sure why, but I think that this product is discontinued :( I found this at the Christmas Tree Shop. It was only like $1.50 so that's a good thing, but I'm completely bummed that you can't buy this in regular stores. It's just a really pretty matte light peachy nude shade that I've been loving for highlighting my brow bone or for putting all over my lid when I want a brighter look!
Nothing like some good dark nail polishes to get you in the fall spirit! I got these at Rite Aid for $1.99 each. I have used Sinful Colors polishes before, but all of them were neons and I was kind of disappointed at how quickly they chipped. But, I know now that it was just because they were neons. I had Mesmerize on my nails when I had to get my appendix removed, a week later my manicure had barely chipped and that was without a top coat... What?!
I totally understand why everyone is obsessed with these Color Tattoo eye shadows now. They are amazing! I really love both of these colors, they look great with hazel eyes and they just are so fall-ish. I think they look great as an all over color or as a liner. 
Ok guys! 
That's everything that I've purchased recently makeup wise. I've got to say, I'm basically in love with every single one of those products. If you would like me to do individual reviews, just let me know! 
Have a beautiful day<3


  1. Hi,

    I have stumbled upon your blog by accident when I was looking online to find the wild apple daffodil lotion (which is hard to find this time of year). Anyway, I really like your blog alot. I was wondering if there was a way to contact you through email about make-up tips. The problems I have most often are my eye shadow and foundation not lasting all day. Anyhow, if you could let me know how to contact you, or if you would like to do a blog posting about it, either way would be great. I also like your sections about the skin care, great tips. Thanks!
