CherryCulture/NYX Haul Swatches

I’ve made an order from Cherry Culture before (shame on me for not posting about that yet!) and they are a pretty nice site! They offer discounted cosmetics for brands like NYX, Milani, LA Girl, and many other brands. For Valentine’s Day, they had a 20% off sitewide sale so I decided to try out a few NYX products I’ve been itching to try.

I ordered five of the Carribean Collection eyeshadow palettes, four Ultra Pearl Mania loose eyeshadows, two powder blushes and five Mega Shine lipglosses.

ELF Haul Swatches

When doesn’t ELF have a promotion going on? Sheesh. 

This time around ELF was offering either free shipping with a purchase of $25 or more or you could score 10 free mineral eyeshadows. Yes 10!! I was in desperate need of some blushes anyway, so I went ahead and made an order.

Hit the jump for some swatch loving!

ELF Essential Lipstick Swatches

I have fallen in love with lip colors! Tinted balms, lip glosses, lipsticks……I’m just loving it all!

Now I’m not exactly a professional so I just wanted some affordable, nice quality lippies that I could practice with and possibly wear daily. Something creamy, slightly moisturizing and not too matte. My search led me to ELF’s Essential line of lipsticks. I’ve seen countless nice reviews and looked through so many lovely swatches. I liked them all!

I just had to indulge! Plus they’re only $1! So what could I really lose, right?

ELF 24K 15 Color Eyeshadow Palette

So on one of my many lippie binges, I scored a free eyeshadow palette!

As always, ELF just can’t resist giving us glam heads a good sale. Recently, I was able to score $1.95 shipping and a free eyeshadow palette from the 24K collection. I have made a handful of purchases from ELF and I personally love some of their products!

I’d never tried anything from the 24K collection so I was really looking forward to getting my hands on this. Check it out!

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss

l’oreal paris colour riche le gloss

Being the picky Aquarius girl that I am, I was starting to grow very tired of the VS Beauty Rush lip gloss I had been wearing since high school.

I’m slowly treading into the world of makeup so I’m trying to stick with lower end, yet quality products. Plus I’m a broke college student =p.

So I went on the hunt for some new refreshing lippies at my local CVS.

What I found were the cuuuutest tubes of lippies in the L’Oreal section!

The burst of fall red lips. Wine lips for the winter. Pops of fuschia to add a touch of warmth to the colder seasons.

Especially when you have the right materials! = ]

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is EXACTLY the type of lippie I’ve been looking for!
