Makeup Haul – YSL, Stila, Kat Von D

I recently had a small spending spree at Sephora, picking up some bits and pieces I had been coveting for a while.  My typical makeup style is very neutral and my inspiration usually comes from Anna Saccone (annasaccone.com).  I saw her wearing the YSL lipstick in ROUGE VOLUPTÉ, colour 1 – nude beige and I knew I had to have it.  This lipstick goes on looking frosty pink, and once settled (thank goodness), turns into a gorgeous nude pink.  The packaging is gorgeous, with the standard YSL gold packaging and the colour of the lipstick noted around the centre.  I will definitely be buying more of these lipsticks, however, since they are a bit pricey at $40, it may be some time before I splurge again.

While we were visiting family in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia recently we popped into the Shoppers Drug Mart and I saw the Stila Eyes Are the Windows palettes.  I was instantly attracted to the palette called “soul”.  It wasn’t until we arrived home that I decided I needed it.  The colours are neutrals with warm tones.  Lots of golds, browns, and rose-toned shades with both matte and shimmer colours.  I have played around with several eye looks so far, and I am impressed with the pigmentation and blending power of the shadows.  This palette is also priced very reasonably at approximately $60 for 12 shades.

My next purchase I think came out of necessity, although lets be honest, probably not so much.  I have been having liquid eyeliner problems.  I have bought a few drugstore brands of the marker pen-style eyeliners and they are so watery or very light on pigment.  It got very frustrating so I decided to go higher end.  After watching several makeup tutorials and reading various blogposts, I decided I absolutely needed the Kat von D ink liner.  It does as it promises, stays on all day.  It is probably the easiest liner I’ve used as it has a small pointed applicator which allows for easy application and thin lines.  If you have been struggling with liquid eyeliner, I suggest you pick this one up.

Thanks for reading – and more hauls coming up soon!
