Online Shopping!


I've been shopping online in the past few weeks to take the edge of having to come back to school. Here's some pics of my recent online haul. :)

I got some NYX lipstuffs from cherryculture.com - from top to bottom, it's round lipgloss in Whipped, Mega Shine lipgloss in Smokey Look, Round lipgloss in Sorbet, and 2 l/l in Natural because they were BOGOF at $2!
I like the formula of the Mega Shine l/g better than the round l/g, but overall, I'm really happy with my purchase. The colors are so pretty and the products are all pretty pigmented. Sorbet is the PERFECT baby pink l/g - it's everything I wanted Underage to be, even though Underage is way too white on me. Whipped is a great nude l/g that kind of reminds me of MAC C-Thru, which I lent my friend one night we went out clubbing and never got back. :( My fav out of the products is Smokey Look l/g - it's a gorgeous natural warm l/g. Love love love it.

Next I took advantage of the 60% off boutique brand sale that they have going on at makeup.com. I got Too Faced diamond gloss in pink diamond and Vincent Longo diamond wet/dry eyeshadow in Dawn Flesh:
I LOVE these! the TF l/g is sooooo smooth and has the prettiest microshimmers that make my lips look fuller! It's brighter than what I wanted, so I'm contemplating getting some more colors. The VL e/s is kind of gritty and sucks when you use it dry, but it's gorgeously shimmery when you apply it wet. It really makes your lids sparkle like diamonds!

I also ordered this awesome Jami Rodriguez necklace off of Hautelook.com because it's originally around $100 and it was on sale for $45. I also had a $10 off coupon, so I got this necklace for only about $35!


MAC has been having a ton of free ship codes lately, so I also got the lipstick in Shy Girl, which I've been wanting for a while but which has been sold out for the longest time at my counters. I love this shade. It's a really pretty almost nudish corally peachy shade.
I can see this working really well with the NYX l/g I got.

And the last item I got is this awesome keyboard protector for my macbook pro! My boyfriend got this for me and I get a ton of compliments on it from my classmates. :) I type really fast so I get self-conscious about my loud typing in class sometimes, so this helps muffle the sounds.

And that's it for now! I also ordered a bunch of stuff at F21 because I needed some layering camis and socks. I can't wait to get that package on Monday!

Do the round lipglosses have the same cherry scent as the shine glosses? I bought Smokey Look a while ago but the scent really bothered me. Otherwise I was really pleased with the quality of the gloss.

Love looking at haul pics. I haven't hauled in a while!

I need to get Smokey Look...I prefer the texture of the mega shine glosses too, but I have do have Whipped an a few other round glosses.

About the hair...I just don't want any indentations/marks in the hair from the clamp so I don't bother using it :).

I've wanted to read Valley of the Dolls for years, but I still haven't done it. I'm almost positive I'd love it.

Love the NYX products you got! Their lipglosses are so tempting! Nice overall haul, makes me feel like breaking the bank =)

Pop Champagne said...

I love NYX, they're a cheaper alternative to MAC. And that nexcklace is really unique!

i lovee the pink keyboard!!

Dani M said...

I love the NYX lipgloss. It's one of my favs. And that necklace is so cute!!! Love it!

Klaudea said...

OMG your NYX glossies make me drool.

Your keyboard cover is so cute too ;)

Omg, you're heading to Disneyworld? Yay!! =D I've never been but would love to visit someday.

I have combo skin but due to the winter weather, it's more dry than oily right now. That said however I think the Purpose cleanser would be great for you too since it's so gentle. :) The DiorSnow is working well for me. This is my second tube. However I think your skin may find the Dior sunblock to be too heavy/greasy. It comes in cream form. Have you tried Sofina Rise UV Cut Milk SPF 50+? I really love this when my skin is on the oilier side (like in the summer) b/c its consistency is almost water-like and it dries to a matte finish. I get it from ichibankao.com :) Hope this helps!

I also recently just got NYX mega lipgloss in Smokey Look. I wish it didn't smell like the worst cough syrup I ever took. ugh! The color's great but man, I never want to put it on b/c I hate the medicine like scent. I also totally need Shy Girl lipstick like..now!

as for fave yoga pants, i actually bought a whole bunch at this random shop by my house. it's no name brand but very similar to hard tail: http://www.urbanminx.com/product.asp?lt=d&deptid=5289&sec=ladies&pfid=UMX07088

Hahaha...so we share the same love for that ride huh? Yep yep we got it here too. ;) Yeah, I went on the Soarin' over California ride too! I dig the 'smell-o-vision' factor...hehe.

I bought the falsies from my post on ebay last year, and there's no brand name on them. They're exactly like the one's in this link though =).
