February 2014 Mini Blush Haul and more~!

One of my New Year Resolution for 2014 is to update & upgrade my Vanity Kit & Wardrobe, so i have a valid excuse to haul, haha!
Mini Haul

I am sensing a terrible addiction starting from this haul. While organising my vanity kit a few weeks ago, i noticed i didn't have enough blush options. And the blushes i have comes in such similar shades. All, and i say ALL are in PINK SHADES only.
 So i decided to look for blushes and vowed to myself to try something from a different colour range. And so the research began..
And this was what i ended up in, with great self-control and mind-setting that these are the only ones necessary.
The research was successful but at the same time led me deeper into the mesmerising world of blushes. I can't seem to snap out of it!

NARS Orgasm ❤︎❤︎❤︎ MAC Ambering Rose
So let me start on the main event. This are the blushers i got after my research.
  1. NARS Orgasm - I think everyone in the makeup world knows and have this. Yes, i finally gave in to the hype. This was the first one i decided on purchasing. You can never go wrong in something everyone recommends. This one is in the peachy-pink range. First impression? LOVE!
  2. MAC Ambering Rose - this is a Sheertone Shimmer. Its described as a "muted-rose" color. I've chosen this one since its more brownish-orangey-something. Sorry, not really good in describing colours. 
MAC Fluidline Eyeliner Gel in Blacktrack
MAC Fluidline Eyeliner Gel in Blacktrack - I mostly own pen liners as they are easier to use and you don't need a brush to apply. But out of curiosity i ended up getting this. Been hearing great reviews on the pigmentation, the no-smudge and staying power of this liner, so i took the plunge. It's always a good thing to have lots of option right?

Real Techniques Blush Brush (Pink) ❤︎❤︎❤︎ Expert Face Brush (Gold)
Been obsessing on Real Techniques Brushes lately!
  1. Real Techniques Blush Brush - as you can see. It's already used! I can't help myself! So hard selling makeups and makeup tools with the temptation! So far i'm loving this blush brush and i can't stop using it!
  2. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - another addition to my option group. I already have The Face Shop Foundation Brush (it's in my previous post, you can check it out here), and BeautyBlender Sponge, and my ever trusted fingers. But decided to throw this one in, so i can use something else when i clean my other foundation brush. Plus it says it can make your foundation look flawless, may it be liquid or cream. Now, who doesn't want that? 

Stila Awesome Blossom Lip Glaze Trio
This Stila Awesome Blossom Lip Glaze Trio is a freebie, it's shades are flower-themed. I don't really have the hots for lip glaze or lip gloss with colors. I prefer the neutral or colorless lip glosses, so i can top it on any lipstick shade i have. But it's FREE so, it's awesome! :)

Lipcote Lipstick Sealer ❤︎❤︎❤︎ fresh Soy Face Cleanser
Lipcote Lipstick Sealer - I already have a reviewed of this here. This product is a MUST-HAVE!

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser - I got this in deluxe size. I am very excited to try this cleanser as again, i read and watched lots of good reviews of this soy cleanser (i should really stop watching and reading reviews.). Though i am very much satisfied with my Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser, i cannot help thinking i should explore and try other things before settling down(that sounded like a life advice!). I can also try this with my Clarisonic Mia2, cant wait! :)

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ❤︎ Urban Decay De Slick Makeup Setting Spray ❤︎ Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss 
Too Face Better Than Sex Mascara - As much as i love the pink rose gold packaging, i love the name of this mascara more! I got another deluxe-size, this has constantly being compared to the Benefit They're Real Mascara, but reviewers claim this one is better, because it's actually smudge-proof, unlike the Benefit which i have experienced first hand, it does smudge after a few hours worn.

Urban Decay De Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray - name too long! Another deluxe-size, it claims to solve the oil problem you will be developing through out the day. I have the other variant, the UD All-Nighter too in my stash. That one tends to make my makeup look more dewy. I'm expecting this one to do the exact opposite.

Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss in Naked - This is one of the new products from Urban Decay, and i was gifted a sample to try it out. Luckily i got the Naked shade, which is more of a neutral lip shade. Will definitely test this out.

So that's it.
I will absolutely post reviews of each items soon. Specially the blushes!

  1. Medyo madami. Medyo nakakalula. Medyo nakakainggit ah. Hahaha. I've been meaning to try that UD De Slick Setting Spray, just never got the chance. Tell me if it's really worth the hype. Hehe. And, I'm sure you're going to absolutely love NARS Orgasm and will be using it for almost every single day! :)

    1. Haha! Makeup is ❤︎ Becs, and you know it! You will be over your makeup ban soon, im sure you have a lot on your list already! I already wore the NARS Orgasm since i couldn't resist na. I love it! :) But the MAC Ambering Rose lasted longer on me.

  2. You have a LOT of new and amazing makeup! :D Excited for your reviews! :)

    1. Hihi, this should keep me busy on my extra hours for the coming days. :)

  3. Awesome haul!! I love Real Technique brushes, great quality and really affordable. If you are in the market for more I would highly recommend the Buffing brush, it's so multifunctional - good for blush, contour and foundation! :)

    1. I'm actually eye-ing on the Core Collection, it's on my next buy! I like the Buffing brush and the Contour brush as well! :)

  4. Wow! You have a lot! I'm planning to upgrade my makeups too but mga middle of the year pa kasi I'm still waiting for my haul last December to come here this march. Thankful you mentioned about the smudging of Benefit they're real! I'm planning to buy that one pa naman after I finished my mascaras. Can't wait for your reviews of these! :D

    1. I'm excited to see your haul on March! Yes the Benefit They're Real smudges, have tried it numerous times with different techniques. Thinking i've applied it the wrong way, but it still smudges. :(

  5. Great haul! :D I am slowly building my makeup collection and I find myself attracted to blushes from different brands! I think I may have a problem. Hahaha!
