Makeup hauls galore!

With extra money from Christmas and Lunar New Year, I was able to order LOTS of makeup recently! I don't have swatches for these since there is a lot, but if you want to see anything feel free to comment and request it :)

This first haul is from NYX Cosmetics. Most of my readers know that I love them a lot, and the best part of this haul was that this was free! I participated in one of their giveaways during their recent "12 Days of Giveaways" promotion on Facebook and received this.

What I got:

Doll Eye Mascara in Long Lash (I own this already, and recommend this to girls who need more length and want an affordable Fiber mascara), Jumbo Eye Pencils in Pacific and Milk,  Powder Blush in Silky Rose, NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone, Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Black, Lip Liner Pencil in Natural, Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Natural and Trio Eye Shadow in Ultra Chic.

Next was an order from Barney's New York. The first item was the NARS Make Your Mind: Express Yourself Lips set.

It was released in conjunction with Fran├žois Nars' book of the same title. It is kind of like a "best" of set containing 4 lip best sellers: Roman Holiday Lipstick, Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick and Orgasm Lipgloss. This set was a deal at $65, considering the value of this box is almost $100!

The second item was the Barneys New York Gaga's Workshop Limited edition Hourglass Lipgloss Trio. It also came with a limited edition shopping bag as well! Hourglass is really expensive usually, so getting any Hourglass makeup on sale is a good deal to me!

A closeup of the lipglosses. They're sheer with lots of glitter in them! Swatched on my hand, they're not super sticky which is always a good thing.

My next order was with Fyrinnae Cosmetics, who I have wanted to order from for months because Nancy of The Dark Side of Beauty features their eyeshadows quite often. They're a small indie cosmetics company that makes all of their products with vegan ingredients. They recently re-opened their store after being closed for about a month, so I took the chance to buy a bunch of sample sized jars of their eyeshadows and a few full sized products as well.
What I bought: Matte Bronzer Medium (full size), Pixie Epoxy (full size), Sample sized eyeshadows in Knickers in a Twist, Platinum, Snow Leopard, Te Amo, Fyre & Ice, Newcastle, Immortality, Captivate, Sample sized blushes in Captivate and Temptation and I received a free sample of Shinigami as well!
The jars flipped over, so you can see how they look! Aren't they such pretty colors?!

The last order was from Ulta online. I ordered online because I mainly wanted the Maybelline Color Tattoo shadows, but most of them were sold out in-store. Luckily it worked out, because they had a $15 off of $75 coupon and a ton of "buy one get one" offers and I got the NYX HD Grinding Blush practically for free, which is great considering they cost around $16!
Ulta Professional Eyebrow brush, Ulta Professional Eyeshadow Crease brush, Ulta Professional Divine Lashes Conditioning Serum, Ulta Professional Brush Cleaner, No. 7 Quick Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes, Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows in Bold Gold, Audacious Asphalt, Pomegranate Punk, and Bad to the Bronze, NYX HD Grinding Blush in Menage a Trois, NYX Mood Lipgloss and NYX Pencil Sharpener.

That sure took a long time to get out, but it's better to get it out now than never... The thought of letting them stack up even more is frightening!
