Summer Haul: Some of the BEST Products EVER!

By 

Hope everyone had a great summer! Traveling is the perfect time to pick up new products and update your makeup kit.  You’re on holidays in the mood to shop and you can pick up products which you can’t find locally.  Here is my Summer Makeup Haul from my trip to Toronto:

Bare Minerals & NARS

bare-minerals

I’ve been wanting to try out Bare Minerals and NARS for ages!!! So I got the Bare Minerals Original Foundation in color golden medium and the New Bare Minerals Bare Skin Brightening Foundation in color Bare Buff with the Perfecting Face Brush.  The Liquid Foundation is realllly nice its full coverage and has a sheen to it.  Haven’t used the original formula yet but I’m excited to begin playing with it.    Now the brush really is awesome, the foundation actually any foundation comes on really well with this brush you kind of wisp it on in circular motions and blends in beautifully.  Great for a fuller coverage look. I’m really happy I bought it.

Nars-Concealer

The NARS foundation is the Sheer Glow Foundation and Concealer.  Foundation is medium 1.5 Vallauris and concealer is Medium 1 Custurd.  This foundation I’d say is my favourite foundation and concealer EVER.  It’s sooo good.  I’m gonna do a full review and swatches of it soon.

Lime Crime

For Lip Colors I’ve been wanting to try Lime Crime for ages so I got the Pink Velvet which is hot pink and Wicked which is a vampy deep maroon.  Lime Crime are known for there bold highly pigmented colors and these are amazing!  Really bold color that stands out.  Never tried anything like them and I wore the Pink Velvet out to my cousins baby shower and everyone was complementing my lips.

Sephora

I also got the New Lustre Long-Wear Lip Color from Sephora in color Magenta. I wanted to try this product and to be honest I didn’t really like the colors they had so I chose this ones as its the only one I’d actually wear from the collection other then red which I didn’t want.  I also picked up a few beauty blender sponges, I was in desperate need!

Two Faced

I’ve really been loving Two Faced these days so I got the best lip plumer I’ve ever used which is called Lip Injection Extreme.  And a new Mascara: Better than Sex which is also excellent.

Urban Decay

Urban Decay, tho I know I can get this in Saudi now I still got it over there. So I got the Heavy Metal Liquid Eyeliner since @dressyourface uses it a lot so I wanted to check it out (first impression: Not Impressed) and then I got the 24/7 Glide on Pencil in Bourbon which I LOVEEE been using it everyday under my eyes on pretty much any makeup look.  Softens up the eye and defines the eye naturally.  Not to mention the texture is fab!

Mally

I got this Mally Evercolro Poreless Face Defender – I hadn’t heard of it before but the sales lady showed me how awesome it is to fill in open mores, matte oily areas under and on top of foundation and as a primer.  I’ll be using this on clients for a smoother base under full coverage foundations.

Bobbi Brown

ArtStick_03

Got the Bobby Brown Art Stick in Dusty Pink – IN LOVE with this product its amazing.  Works like a full coverage lip color/lipliner all in one.  So easy to apply and this one is such a beautiful color.  I want to get more!

MAC

Mac I got the Flat Out Faboulous since its such a stunning matte color for Fall and Peachstock as a nice nude or blending color.  I pretty much own the entire MAC store so this is all I got on my trip :).

Anastasia Beverly Hills

Anastasia Beverly Hills I finalllllly got the Brow Pro Palette which I was dying for – its perfect for pro makeup artists to keep in your kit.  Easy to travel with has all the colors possible for any eyebrow and you can even use them as eyeshadow for a natural look.  It used to be $55 last year and this year its $88!!  Price Increase!  Anyways I still got it since I needed it for my kit.  I also got the Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony. Which is such an amazing eyebrow product, probably my favorite ever.  I wish I got more colors as ebony is a bit dark but its works fine for my black brows.  Its so natural yet defines the eyebrows just the way Arabs and Asians like.  I’ll do a full review on this one soon.

Here I’m wearing NARS Sheer glow with the concealer, MAC Flat Out Faboulous on my lips with Two Faced Lip Injection Extreme Underneath, Ebony Dip Brow, Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Pencil Under the eyes to create some depth and Two Faced Better than Sex Mascara

So that’s it! I think I was pretty good 🙂 but comment below if you have any questions! xo

    Great review!
    You look beautiful in the picture! 🙂
    Was waiting for your thoughts on the Bare Minerals liquid foundation and the brush! I’m so glad you like it as I was skeptical because some people were saying it’s good and some the opposite..
    If it can work on your skin then it’ll work on mine too… 🙂

    I got the Red Velvet by Lime Crime and I love it!!!!! I want to get the Pink and the Wicked too!

    And I’ve been wanting the beautyblender for agessss!!! After seeing you use the bleauty blender at the makeup workshop, I couldn’t resist…! ^_^
    And I lovee Mally Beauty’s makeup!

    Great article!
