E.L.F Cosmetics Haul

I totally had no intentions what so ever to purchase any makeup!! ahaa but knowing me I should have known that would be inevitable to avoid. So I checked out my local Targets E.L.F Cosmetics section and I saw a few things I wanted!! Fairly cheap! only spent 12 $. I got a lipgloss, 2 powder blushes, 2 cheek,lip,face tints and a contour eye brush!! :) Ill have swatches and all that jazz up later!! :) 

DO you ever make it a point to check the makeup section at your local stores in case something wonderful and cheap pops up BUT has great quality?

I Got That Natural Flare

 In the Semi Precious Collection by MAC there are 5 Cremesheen Glasses. This was my first time ever trying Cremesheen glasses because words couldn't explain the love I have for my MAC lipglasses. Now that I have discovered Cremesheen Glass, lipglass may now be runner up in my lip love life. Natural Flare is a light caramel nude and costs 18.50 US$ for .09 oz, pretty pricey yes my thoughts exactly. These bad boys are definitely worth the shelling out the cash on, if you compare it to lipglass from MAC it is NOT sticky at all. To me its like im wearing colored chapstick, its amazing how smooth they apply.  MAC doesn't put in the description that there is a slight shimmer to it, its hardly noticeable for me but its there and it glistens so beautifully in the sun.
I am not one for wearing the brown, or nude tone lipsticks or lipglosses but after this I'm in love. Out of all the Cremesheen glasses I have from this collection, Natural Flare is the one I reach for the most.

Do you love brown, mocha or nude lipsticks/lipglosses? Did you dislike the color before you found a product you loved in that color and your now hooked also? Did you get anything from the Semi Precious Collection? Is there anything you are lemming for from this collection?

With this lipstick You are definitively One of A Kind

  One of a Kind is one of the lipsticks from the MAC Semi Precious line, It is a Fall 2011 collection, so you can see that it is based on fall colors or fall looks that are in for this years season. One of a Kind is a Midtone Rosy Neutral and it is a Lustre finish and costs 14.50 US$. As soon as I saw the product photo for this I instantly wanted it, its such a gorgeous color.

Semi Precious- Gem Of Roses

I'm more then 100% absolutely positive that this was one of the most sought after and wanted product from this collection. The color is gorgeous for any season (summer,winter,fall, & spring). When I wear this lipstick I feel cute, sexy and glamorous all at the same time, especially the name Gem of Roses adds to that.
Gem of Roses is a Midtone Strawberry Pink with a Lustre finish. It cost 14.50 US$ when this collection first came out this instantly SOLD OUT. The products from this collection have been restocked you can find them Mac Semi Precious or at in the beauty section.
For me this lipstick lasts about 4-6 hours with eating and all that jazzz! It's a great color for anything imaginable. So if you like it I'd get your hands on it before it sells out again.
