Winter 2011 Beauty Haul

Yep! You read it right, this was part of the winter goodies that I got. This is totally a back log beauty haul post, but I figured it'll be nice to show off some pictures that I had taken of the products I bought.

tarte Haul

Since Tarte is running their 30% off Friends & Family Sale right now (with code FFAUG), here's what I got from their last Friends & Family sale.

tarte Haul
I picked up their Rising Star Limited Edition Palette, along with the Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface and Little Blot Book. This palette was $20.30 after the 30% discount and was such a great value.

The Cheeks
Color Names
The Rising Star palette had the most beautiful cheek blush from their Amazonian Clay Blush line, but these 2 colors are limited only to this palette. When I first saw the 2 blushes, I was in love! Searched high and low trying to find out what the colors were. Here it is! It Ethereal and Pouty (both of which are not available individually). Look at the shimmer!
The Eyeshadows

The eyeshadow shades were also full of warm neutrals that have shimmers and glitter. Very pretty and wearable.

The Little Blot Book

The only reason I bought the Little Blot Book was to get free shipping. =P  This is practical enough and small enough for the tiniest clutches/purses.

Shu Uemura Haul

Though I love the Kai Curler that I talked about here, I was tempted with the known cult favorite Shu Uemura curler (especially with a 20% Friends & Family discount!).

Shu Uemura Haul
And guess what!? I DON'T like the curler. >.<  I was so disappointed how it doesn't seem to open wide enough for me to put my eyelashes in. I have very long pin straight lashes and I always have trouble getting them through the curler. =(  But I haven't chucked it yet, I'm hoping that I'll love it miraculously one day..

Shu Uemura Blush Refills
Picked up these 2 pretty blush refills in M soft coral 345 and P light peach 510. Both are matte blushes and not too pigmented. The light peach is a great highlight color though.


With a Gilt voucher for NARS, I was on a mission to shop! =D  Though I didn't want the cult favorite Orgasm blush, I picked up other goodies.

The Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base is so perfect! I have proven that it doesn't cause eyeshadows to crease on me even with over a 12 hour wear. <3

NARS blushes
Instead of Orgasm, I picked up Deep Throat and Luster. Deep Throat actually looks very similar to Orgasm, but in a more mauve-y peach color.

NARS Deep Throat Blush
Look at those gold shimmers! So beautiful, but you will definitely need to use a light hand! It's way too pigmented.

NARS Luster Blush
The Luster blush is also very beautiful. Similar golden shimmer but more bronzey blush. This would be perfect for fall. But also overly pigmented that you need to be careful when applying. Definitely <3 for both blushes.

Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Hopi
Last but not least, a Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Hopi. I wanted to try a lip pencil and the name caught my attention. It's a creamy lip pencil that leaves a glossy finish. I love the effect. Hopi is a darker brown red, another staple for fall.

That's it for my winter haul and short reviews! My spring shopping spree will be up soon enough!
