OCC The Garden S/S 2012 Lip Tars

Continuing on with my haul I decided to swatch the lip tars I bought from OCC. These are from the new spring collection. Please excuse my dry lips! Also my natural lip color is a little more red because I took the picture after swatching(yeah I!). I think most of you know how pigmented lip tars are. A very little goes a loooong way! I absolutely love lip tars because how versatile they are. I can mix them or use them alone. If you haven't already tried them you should definitely buy a couple. You can purchase the new collection or some of the oldie but goodies for $14 here.

Magnolia Makeup Big Easy Collection

No surprise in the name of the collection since Magnolia Makeup is based out of New Orleans. This is another purchase from The Makeup Show. I'm also missing one color(tchoupitoulas-matte deep teal) from this collection that was sold out. Every time I look at the colors from Magnolia I get so excited! I'm telling you that pictures do no justice to the dimension and intensity of these colors. Let's get to the swatches!

Magnolia Makeup Indian Summer Collection

I'm on a roll this week. So why not keep the party going with more of my makeup show haul. I absolutely love Magnolia Makeup! Their pigments are so unique and the color payoff is out of this world! Niala and Tia are an awesome duo and their products speak for themselves. This collection was an early release for The Makeup Show. It will be released online and available for sale on June 21 at Magnolia Makeup. I am missing one color(big chief-a beautiful royal blue with light blue shimmer) from this collection because it was sold out. :( I will definitely be purchasing this color when the collection is released online. :)

More Hakuhodo Brushes

I posted my collective Makeup Show haul and wanted to start posting the items I purchased. If any you have been reading this blog you know that I looooove Hakuhodo! I didn't have a lot of time to shop there my first day because I was taking classes all day. I had about an hour after my class to stop by the booth and do some damage, and damage I did! I was making so many purchases that my bank froze my card right as the show was closing up for the day...ugh! I was able to call and let them know that I was making the charges and they freed up my card so that I could take my precious Hakuhodo brushes home with me...yay!! Here the brushes I purchased from the show:

 Update: Hakuhodo will be selling the J series brushes online. They are slated to release somewhere between 80-90 brushes! They should be available for sale by the end of July or the beginning of August. To prepare yourself pre-release, check out more of the J series brushes here. I know I'm getting my list!

Makeup Show NYC 2012 haul

Hey everyone!! I know, I know! It's been ages since I posted! I'm back with my NYC Makeup Show haul. I know it's a day late and a dollar short, but better late than never right?! As usual I went with my girls. We have been going to this show since 2008. I have watched this show get bigger and bigger each year. This year was no exception. I did take two classes as well. I took a contouring and highlighting class with Danessa Myricks, and a hair class with Johnny Lavoy. There were so many brands and products that I didn't know where to look first. I did some serious damage and enjoyed every minute of it! There is nothing like makeup therapy!!! I will slowly but surely be posting swatches of these products. So without further ado here is my haul:
