In my last Makeup No Buy post, I mentioned getting a few things for my birthday. The box arrived yesterday, on Saturday, and I’m fairly excited. 🙂 I only got two sets, but there was a fair amount of samples.
First up is the Urban Decay Ocho Loco 2, which won out over the Vice 2 palette and the Shattered Face Case, just because a) I have too many eyeshadows, and b) I’ve never tried Urban Decay eyeliners before. I know, right? Anyway, I’ve only play-tested them out, but I’m pretty happy about all of the colors, and the quality. 🙂
Next, I got a Best of BECCA Set, which includes a Beach Tint (Grapefruit), Eye Tint (Baroque), and travel-sized Shimmering Skin Perfector (Opal), Resurfacing Primer, and The Ultimate Mascara (Black). I can’t wait to try them out, although Grapefruit is quite similar to Guava, which I already have, and Baroque is super sheer.
I got a few samples, too. Squee! There’s the Benefit Birthday Set, which has sample sizes of Watt’s Up! and the They’re Real mascara. There’s also a YSL Glossy Stain sample card that has 3 colors, a BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a NARS Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer, and a YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat liquid foundation and YSL Touché Eclat.
I’m pretty excited!
Here’s an out-of-focus photo of the Benefit samples, just because they are SO. CUTE. I hope you enjoyed this haul! I know it’s not much, but as you know, I’m cutting back significantly on the shopping. 🙂 Have a great week!
