New Makeup + Swatches
It's been a while since I gave you guys a sneak peek into my makeup drawers.  For Christmas and my birthday I accumliated a collection of new makeup purchases and I wanted to share them with you all before I started to use them.  I'm defintely not a professional makeup artist, but I've learned a thing or two from YouTube videos and I defintely take notes when one of them recommends a product.  Some of these were drugstore finds, some were Christmas gifts, while others were purchased at Ulta.  I'll try to find the products and link them down below for you.


I have been obsessed with this highlighter phase lately.  I mean, I've gotten so many compliments when I started to use this highlighter and I am loving it.  It gives you just the right of shimmer and you are GLOWING all day long.  I had never heard of this brand before, but at Ulta they were having a buy one get one 50% off and their products are amazing quality.  The highlighter that I picked up is so soft, and I don't need to use much to get the glow that I'm looking for.  I also got this baked blush, because I just can't do blushes unless their baked with bronzer.  I don't really do pink cheeks, but the bronzer plus the blush always makes my cheeks look the perfect amount of rosey.  Same thing as the highlighter, the baked blush is super creamy and all I need is a little bit and it goes a long way.  I also got this brand, Revolution, eyeshadow pallete.  I really like the range of colors that is available in this palette especially for how inexpensive it was ($10!).  However, the colors that I would use, the more neutral the colors were, which are ones that I tend to use more, weren't as pigmented as I would have liked them to be.  They were all matte shades as well.  So I use them for more of the base and then I'll blend it with another palette.  The final product I got from this brand is something that I don't really get how to use still.  It's a primer, but I totally thought it was some sort of setting powder.  So, haven't actually used it yet, but when I do I'll make sure to update you guys on it!

I also picked up two primers, both from Ulta.  The Maybelline blue + illuminate primer is an oldie, but a goodie.  This is a great, drugstore, and inexpensive primer that is defintely worth every penny.  While I was in line to checkout, damn those sample size products at the checkout line, I came across this other product.  I remember seeing some of my favorite YouTubers talk about this product and when I read the ingredients it just sounded, well perfect.  AND IT IS!  Seriously, the Hangover RX Primer by Too Faced is such an incredible primer.  It also smells really good!  This product gets an A+++ in my book.

For Christmas, Santa brought me a few new products.  The first is this color correcting compact.  It comes with any and all of the colors that can help with hiding blemishes.  Plus, it's super pretty.  It's cream based, but you don't need to use too much when using it.  So far, I only know what a couple of the colors are used for, but if you know what they all are for then you should defintely leave me a comment below to help a girl out.  I remember seeing these next items at Walgreens and I knew I had to have them.  They had a whole collection of Disney Villians and D.C. Comics cosmetic products.  These Batgirl brushes are really great quality.  I really like the blending one because it's angled and can really buff out the fine lines that makeup can leave.  The next product was a Catwoman highlighter stick.  It's not as pigmented as the Revolution highlighter, but it does the trick.  It's also perefect to keep in your purse for touch ups throughout the day.  Finally, is the Disney Evil Queen booklet is one of my favorites.  It looks perfect sitting on my vanity and it came with a few different products.  They eyeshadows are these deep gorgeous colors and they are great colors for going out.  It also came with an eyeshadow brush, an eyeliner, a lipgloss, a bronzer, and a eyeshadow stick.  It's seriously such a cute little package.  My mom also got me this 3 piece beauty blender set which is almost too pretty to use.  I also got a new setting spray.  I usually get the Urban Decay setting spray, but I opted for something cheaper.  It still works though and it's a much bigger bottle! My mom also got me these gel nail polishes where you don't need the light to set them and their quick drying.  They're perfect for me because I am so impatient when getting my nails done.
