NARS and MAC haul!!

Getting so close to finally reaching my first 100 followers. I will definitely be giving out a VERY nice giveaway once I reach that point. I have a good idea what I'm gonna giveaway and I think you all will love it :-)

So I've been meaning to post this haul for sometime but I was away from the internet. I've been traveling a lot and recently had a birthday.

So here's what I purchased:

NARS blush and bronzer Duo (in Orgasm & Laguna): This one seems to be VERY popular and I can clearly see why. Both shades look spectacular and have been wanting to try them out for a while. I got this baby over on makeupalley and was originally going to buy both shades individually but figured the Duo would work better for me :-)

NARS Lipstick in Venice
- I bought this at makeupalley by a really nice and helpful girl. I'm a real sucker for pink lippies like this. I recently saw some MAC lippies and a YSL that was a really pretty shade like this and may post a haul on those as well!!

MAC Fafi lippie in Utterly Frivolous - I first saw this lovely shade on somebody's blog a while back and thought it was a gorgeous shade. It took me forever to finally find someone that was selling this. I think this lippie has been discontinued.

MAC Studio Finish Concealer (NC20): I've seen so many tutorial videos/blogs of ladies raving about this one. In fact it was one of the very first items that got my attention when first getting interested in makeup. Right after receiving it I made the mistake of leaving it in my car on a hot sunny day. The concealer was "sweating" and it was very watery looking at the top. At first I was upset because I thought that I had accidentally ruined it. ha ha ha

Urban Decay Primer Potion: Another very popular item that I've been wanting to get for a long time. A while back I did buy some UDPP but it was in a shade called "Sin". It was alright but I think i'll like this kind better.

Maybelline Forever Metallics - Ruby Luster:
I bought not 1 but 2 of these lovely lippies a few weeks ago. I went to an old FOTD blog and saw somebody using this one and just had to try it out. Since I have 2 of these. I think I will probably use 1 of them for my upcoming giveaway
