Beauty Haul: Benefit, MAC, Maybelline & More!

Hello gorgeous!

I have been adding papers and coins to my little "beauty savings" and it just happens, I have saved enough to go on a tiny makeup shopping spree for a few treats to my makeup collection and a little haul for you!

So, let's get into it!

Stay Don't Stray Primer by Benefit 

The first shop I just had to go into was Sephora, and straight to the Benefit stand I go! Benefit always has so many makeup products I'm so eager to try, but sadly my purse can't agree. So, looking at all the things I'd love to get, I had to go with my budget and choose one, and as you can see, I went with the Stay Don't Stray Primer because to me, a great base equals a great look, and this primer is exactly that. Also, I got a mini sample a few months ago and it lasted for about 4 months. It was about time I got the full version!

I love the applicator on this, it gives a good amount of product and keeps you from wasting. Always a plus!

Angel and See Sheer by MAC

My next stop was MAC, and I always find myself going back to them no matter how much I try to change it up. I just love the quality, lasting power, and the wide range they offer in their products. I'm never disappointed!

Now, I was never a lipstick person until recently. I just find myself wanting to add a variety of lipsticks to my collection. From sheer to matte, glossy to shimmery. I want it all! But of course.. I have my comfort zone and I'm willing to stay in there for now. So, I went with this almost nude but with a pop of pink lipstick in Angel A93. I love how it looks and it's just right for an everyday look, or even when you'd like to sass it up with a smokey look for a night out! It also looks great on tan, so that's a win win!

I was looking for a lipstick that gives that 'I've been in the sun all day and I'm so hot so my lips turned a sun kissed burnt orange' look if that makes any sense.. And this did just that! It gives a very natural look and I just love it! It's in the shade See Sheer A13.

Studio Fix Fluid Foundation by MAC

I also needed a new foundation as the ones I have were basically running out and BB creams won't do for important events. So I picked up the Studio Fix Fluid foundation in NW30. I always purchased this in NC30 but they were out of stock and with me probably getting a tan soon, I thought why not!

Pink Pop 900 Colorsensational lipstick by Maybelline 

This one is actually way out of my comfort zone, and I'm not sure if I could ever pull it off, but a teacher of mine wears a similar shade and it just looks amazing on her, so I thought I'd give it a try. Who knows, I might love it!

Stay Matte Foundation by Rimmel 

I know I already purchased MAC's foundation, but it is sort of heavy for an everyday look, and since the Stay Matte foundation by Rimmel has been getting a lot of good reviews, I thought I'd give it a try. It does have a mousse consistency so I'm not sure how I'm gonna like it, but I'll let you all know!

And that is all for my little makeup haul! I will be doing reviews and swatches soon, so keep a heads up for that. I hope you all enjoyed!
