Humble Beauty Opinion #28

I have discovered some great products this month 
& have crossed off quite a few off my wish list! 

 From Ulta:
- I finally found some of the NYX  Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks that I have been searching for,
online I ordered "Ruffle Trim" and in store I finally found "Exotic", I like the formula, the colors are darker than in the tube but nice!
- NYX Butter Lipstick in "Root Beer Float"- this is a great color, I am loving it!
- NYX Macaron Lippies in "Earl Grey", I wanted the Sephora serenity lipstick but when I tried it in store I did not like it, so I decided to give this one a try, it is SO PIGMENTED but a cool color =)
- Ulta Eye Shadow in "Sabel" I have wanted this as a crease color for a long time and could never find it in store, happy to have it!
- Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow "Mauves like Jagger 080"- I had such high expectations for this and I don't really like it, I have heard it is better used wet but I don't really like to do that.
- Too Faced "Unicorn Tears"- I thought about getting this a few different times, but when I swatched it in store, I was sad they didn't have any to purchase in store, so this spurred this online order. I LOVE it, much more than I thought I would. I have mainly been wearing it on top of a cool pink color (mainly Essence "Natural Beauty") in the center of the lip. It is great! Bringing back the 90's iridescent in the best way!
+ a couple prime samples

I am all about the blue lipsticks apparently!
Top: NYX "Earl Grey"
Bottom: Too Faced "Unicorn Tears" {hits more pink in the light though}

I also picked up this e.l.f. eyeliner in "Midnight" and absolutly love it!
It is a deep purple almost black color and really is great!
I will be using this a lot and probably getting backups!

I stopped by Walmart to pick up some candles and got two of these Hard Candy Velvet Mousse lipsticks in "Daffodil" and "Cherry Blossom". 
I wore "Daffodil" already and it is AWESOME, one of my favorite liquid lips that I've tried, 
went on so nice and lasted a long time and never got uncomfortable. Highly recommend! 

I got this City Color Mosaic Blush in "Coral Glow" from Five Below, 
it is so pigmented {scarily so...} but it is very nice, I love the color! 

I was so excited to see Becca Cosmetics on Hautelook for such great prices!
I got the creamy concealer in "Banana" & two eye shadow palettes in "Astro Violet" & "Night Star"

I am enjoying the eyeshadow quads, they are pretty but nothing too special.
Happy to have them for $10 and not $40+.

The "creamy" concealer however, is terrible.
It is so dry, so thick, hard to get out and hard to blend.
I hate it, so much so that I don't know if it is possible for me to use it up,
and that rarely happens.

I have been checking out Colourpop's "Puppy Love" limited edition shadow,
and decided to pull the trigger on the last possible day!

I also got "TeaseCake" highlighter which I am loving!
Aside from the "Puppy Love" shadow, I
 also got the shade "Bae" which I am loving too!
It is more purple than I was expecting but it is still great.
I got the Ultra Matte Lip in "Bumble", I have not tried it yet but it is pretty!

This month's Ipsy was a great one!
I love the NYX Liquid Suede, the Manna Kadar shadow is pretty too, Pixi by Petra Blush Duo in "Rose Gold" is very pretty with color and a highlight all in one, the Alterna Volume Mist smells amazing and I love the volume it gives me!
The only product I don't enjoy that much is the nail buffer.

Time for some Wish List items!

When Keiko Lynn posted about the MAC Cosmetics x Charlotte Olympia collection,
I had to click and check it out right away!

I especially love the packaging and this makeup bag is just too cute!

The Too Faced Sweet Peach palette came out and it is even prettier than I was expecting!

This month's empties / reviews:
Victoria's Secret "Pink" body lotion- this is an oldie but a goodie! / Dr. Bronner's "Peppermint" soap- we get this from Trader Joe's and is is great! So refreshing! / Real Colors Stay N Spray Making Setting Spray from Sally's Beauty- I had high hopes for this aerosol setting spray but it was nothing too exciting- I went back to Urban Decay's "All Nighter" spray / "Pink Friday" perfume sample- I love this, I might actually buy a bottle! / philosophy "giving" perfume sample- this was okay, enjoyed it while it lasted / Josie Maran "Argon Black"- I got this from my Zia, I loved it in the beginning but it got dried out and flaky, as usual with a mascaras / Loreal "Double Extend" mascara- Also got this from my Zia, I love the two step process, I think it works to lengthen and plump up the lashes, but it got very sticky in the end and wouldn't dry / Cozy Nights candle from Target- you know this is my favorite, sad these are some of the last of my stock! / Jergens "Ulta Healing"- my go to lotion, need more! / Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color in "Dark Burgundy"- one of my favorites / luminessence "Driftwood Sands"- a dollar store favorite! / Coconut Rich Body Butter- this was nice, but not as good as my Trader Joe's coconut lotion that I love so much! / Blistex- a classic! I love it for bedtime. Can't believe I actually finished not one, but two chap sticks this month! / Olive Lips- pretty sure this was from Ipsy and it was a nice one too! Sad to see it be finished / (Malin + Goez) rum body wash- this stuff smells so good! Gotta go back to the DogFish Inn for some more!

Another month of great beauty products!
