Beauty: Necessities Haul
I can stop when I want to... I just needed most of these things, okay? I'll explain below ;)
Rimmel by Kate 104 - this one I didn't need, but I saw it and I wanted it, so I got it. End of story.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer in Light - I was running out of the other one. I wanted to get the full-size, but it was unfairly priced, so I just got the travel size again.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics Palette - given that my makeup expired years ago, I needed to restock. I chose this palette because of the darkest color called Undone. I use it for my brows.
MAC Blotting Powder in Medium Dark (not pictured above) - I needed a new finishing powder and this one had really good reviews, so I decided to just get it when I couldn't hold off any longer.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara (not pictured above) - it was an Ulta beauty steal for $10 so I decided to just go ahead and get it since drugstore is about $7-$9. I justified it. Review coming soon in a couple weeks.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula - I wanted an easier way to use the cocoa butter so I decided to just go ahead and get the squeezy bottle. Also, I found it was only $5-$6 and I was running out of my Alba Botanica body cream which was originally $13.99. Bargain!
Eclos Instant Radiance Facial Scrub - when I got the Mac blotting powder, the associate remarked that my face was flaky. She advised I get a scrub. I already had Alba Botanica face scrub, but I guess it wasn't good enough since it was so gentle. I googled Eclos and it had good reviews on Makeup Alley, so I went for it. It also came with a free mini antioxidant mask. Who doesn't like free?
Let me know if you've tried any of these before and how you like them!
