I recently went on a Sephora haul with birthday money and a $100 gift certificate from myboyfriend. Ah, the giddy happiness you get from tearing into the packaging and swatching new products. Here's a quick look on my haul and my first impressions.
The Benefit kit contains a instructional booklet and travel sizes of Erase Paste, That Gal brightening face primer, Boi-ing concealer in Light/Medium shades, Lemon Aid, Eye Bright as well as concealer brushes. I am super excited to try out all these products.
The Love at First Blush set come with a blush with shimmery lilac, matte pink, and shimmery dark pink along with two lip glazes (Bubble Gum and Pinkle Twinkle). It was hard getting decent swatches (the swatches are on the right of my hand, the bottom color is at the top). The colors are pretty and the design is adorable. I have a feeling the blush with show up better on my cheeks. The glosses are pigmented and a little sticky. Bubble Gum is on the top left and Pinkle Twinkle is the bottom left. Pinkle Twinkle comes off a little more berry than it is in the tube and Bubble Gum is a creamy lilac.

I've been lusting after a NARS duo for awhile and I'm so happy with the one I got. I didn't want to get the popular Orgasm/Laguna duo because I use Milani's Luminous blush and I just didn't want to spend all that money on something so similar to what I already had. The blush is a berry and Casino is suppose to be a dark brown. I would guess I'm around an NW25-30 right now so I'll see if the color works for me.
Lastly, these are the samples I got with my order. I probably wouldn't have to purchase any high-end skincare after all the samples I gathered =)
