Collective Haul of the Week

3:59 PM

I've gotten some pretty awesome stuff this week.  Rather than sharing each individual haul with you guys, I decided to lump it all into one giant post.  This post actually became shorter because I didn't get a chance to make it to the mall (at least a decent one) yesterday because traffic in Atlanta was stupid. Literally all of the major highways had some type of backup.  So I stayed close to home in the 'burbs, but I did manage to get some M.A.C stuff at Belk and my mom and I still had a good time.  Oh, and I had my first ever iced green tea latte from Starbucks. Good stuff.  Anyways, what I am trying to say is that I didn't get a chance to get some stuff from Sephora, The Body Shop, and Macy's like I wanted.  Oh, I also wanted to get some candles from Bath and Body Works, but of course the one by my house is closed for most of the summer for remodeling. Oh well. At least it didn't close permanently.

Belk: M.A.C Prep+Prime Blemish Control Gel, M.A.C Prep+Prime Skin Base, M.A.C Studio Sculpt Defining Bronzing Powder in Golden Rinse (Wash&Dry Collection), and M.A.C, Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow in Permanent Press (Wash&Dry Collection).

I have been wanting to add to my pathetic little M.A.C collection for a while, but I didn't quite know what I wanted.  I have heard amazing things about these two products from their Prep+Prime line, so I grabbed them.  Naturally I had to get some things from their newest collection. I ALWAYS miss out on their newest products, but not this time.  I managed to get to the store the day the products hit the counter, and I also ordered some stuff online. So ha! Sorry, I was kind of overly excited about it.  I was drawn to the Freshen Up highlighter, but it is a bit too orange and yellow for my taste.

Ulta: Tarte Rainforest After Dark Colored Clay and Cheek Palette, Essence 3D Eyeshadows in Irresistible First Love and Irresistible Choco Cupcake, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen, NYX Black Eyeshadow Base, and NYX Extreme Shine Eyeliner in Jet Black, and some awesome skincare samples

I had a lot of points to redeem through Ulta, so I figured it was time to cash them in.  As you can see, I got some pretty great stuff.  So far, I have only used the NYX eyeliner, and I LOVE it.  I will have to get a review of it up soon. I see Copenhagen all the time on Instagram, and it looks like a stunning shade. I needed in it my life. I opted for the Rainforest at Night Palette rather than the new Showstopper palette because I love the packaging, the colors are gorgeous, and it reminds me of fall, which I want to be here already.  It is already too hot, too humid, and summer is too much work. But it is fun, and I have to say, I am thoroughly enjoying being tan.

Hautelook (everything by theBalm): Balm's Away Eye Makeup Remover, Balm Jovi Palette, Bahama Mama Bronzer/Shadow, Hot Mama Blush/Shadow, Cindy-Lou-Manizer, and Autobalm Hawaii.

I love theBalm, but I don't own a lot by them.  I saw that Hautelook had some of their products for 50% off, so I pounced.  Let me tell you that the Balm's Away Eye Makeup remover is incredible. It takes everything off with ease, doesn't irritate my eyes, and keeps the skin around my eye area soft. Upon opening the Balm Jovi palette, I realized that one of the shades had crumbled and left a bit of a mess. =( But it does happen and there is still a lot of product in the pan.

Nordstrom: Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser, Kiehl's Over Night Biological Peel, Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatmen, Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Pencil, M.A.C Powder Blush in Hipness, M.A.C Lipglass in Domestic Diva, M.A.C Steam Up lipstick, and some seriously awesome samples.

Kiehl's was 20% off and being that I have never tried Kiehl's I figured why not? The UD pencil is a larger version of their lipliner by the same name, and I figured this size would be great for filling in my entire lips.

KB Shimmer: Peppermint cuticle oil, Relaxation Soap, Life Rose On polish, Home Surf Polish, What Are You Wading For? polish, Stark Raven Mad polish, Lets Not Coral polish, and 6 mani shots (3 Relaxation, Paradise, Citrus Blast, and Southern Belle

I am excited about trying out everything, but I am over the moon about the Kb Shimmer products.  I have seen the nail polish all over the internet, and it is stunning. And the mani shots are a nifty little idea.  This stuff made my house and mailbox smell so unbelievably amazing.

Shots, shots, shots!

Mani shot.

Whew.  This was rather exhausting to compile, but I was too excited to not share everything with you guys. What have you hauled recently?
