MAC & DRUGSTORE MAKEUP HAUL + 1st Impressions 2014

Hello my fellow Shoppers!
Today as you can guess it's Haul time on my Beauty channel, you can't keep me away from a good deal nor a few brand new shiny things at the drugstore Ha Ha!!
So I went to my local Target and Drugstore for some new stuff and then I went to the MAC Store in my area to spend a lot $$. I had finally caved on some things from MAC Cosmetics, that I had been eyeing off for the last few weeks and I just knew I needed them in my life ;-)
So I brought them, but to make me feel less guilty I will be reviewing the MAC Items (& some of the Drugstore ones too) in february for you guys. Until then enjoy the Haul video!

Testing out a foundation can be a great experience or a bad one, lucky for me testing out the newest foundation from Smashbox left me feeling happy in the foundation I had discovered.
I've been wearing this foundation on & off, using different methods of applying it and wearing it with a primer and without one, and after 5 weeks I have my full review on this foundation from Smashbox.

essence Beauty Beats HOT Or NOT Review!!

Hello Everyone,
So I was looking in drugstore Makeup aisle of the essence beauty display area and I came across the newest collection from essence, this is Justin Bieber "themed" collection mainly in names of the colors of the products, as there is not Justin's Name nor face on the Packaging. So this would be cool to own if you're a Justin Bieber Fan (for the product names) or for me if you're just an essence makeup fan!!!
Video Link: http://youtu.be/J_EzitN7A5s
So above is the video link to the Review video AND below that is swatches and a HD look of each makeup product in this worldwide available collection.
*Please do note there are 4 Nail Polishes and 2 Hair ties in this collection too, but I did not get them as I am more for the Makeup stuff.
So without further ado, here's the swatchy goodness!! :-)


Thank you for reading & watching the video,
Till next time!
