Why not haul on a gorgeous Friday afternoon?

What's up junkies!! I wanted to share with you the goodies I got when I was shopping yesterday. It was a gorgeous afternoon, and my sister took my kids to her house. I had hours to myself, and decided to do a little shopping. I went to Sephora first, then I headed over to the MAC counter at my local Macy's. Here's a list of the things I picked up:

1. Cargo beach blush in Cable Beach. This is my first Cargo blush, and it probably won't be my last. This thing is gorgeous! It has 4 stripes of color that you can swirl together, and the end result is this beautiful peachy coral shade with a gold sheen to it. It's similar to Orgasm by Nars, but darker. It also comes in the cutest little tin. I can't wait to use it! $26

2. Lorac shadow in Celebutante. This shadow reminds me of MAC Parrot or Steamy. It is a shimmery teal blue with a gold shift to it. The texture of Lorac shadows is really smooth and blendable. It will be perfect for spring and summer. $18

3. Kat Von D autograph eyeliner in Proud Peacock. This is my first liquid liner (besides the penultimate by MAC). I've been really into colored liners lately, and the Sephora sales person said these are really nice. You unscrew the top, and attached is a tiny brush. The color is a dark, dark emerald green - the swatch doesn't do it justice. $16

4. Benefit full finish lipstick in La La Land. I am a big fan of the Benefit lipsticks, especially the full finish ones. La La Land is a nude rose color. I tried it on last night, and I love it. I think it would look good on anyone, and the formula is so smooth and creamy. $18

5. The MAC 116 brush. This is a tapered blush brush, and I've had my eye on it for awhile. I have a few pics comparing it to the 129. The 116 is smaller, more dense, and softer. I think it will deliver a more precise application - perfect for blush, contour, or high lighting. I love MAC brushes, and I think they're a great investment. I try to buy one every so often to keep my collection growing. $32

6. MAC prep and prime transparent finishing powder. This is a new product which came out with the colour ready collection - but it will be permanent. I haven't tried it yet, but it has rave reviews. It is used to set your foundation, and it gives your face a soft diffused look. It also minimizes the look of pores and other imperfections. It comes in one universal shade that will work on all skin tones. I'll let you guys know what I think of it after I use it a few times. $21

As always, please click on the pics to make them bigger. Let me know if you have any questions - catch ya next time junkies!!
