this just in: nyx haul!

so i’ve noticed that when i get bored i find myself at ulta. how dangerous is that?! thank goodness stillwater doesn’t have a sephora…that could do some serious damage.
i swear ulta has a target-like effect. you know, where you find yourself wandering around aimlessly looking at everything you don’t need when you only went in to grab some dry shampoo. guilty as charged.

in this little haul, i have a couple of repurchases that are tried and true (and probably on my holy grail list), a couple recommended products and a couple random things that were bought via the target effect.

i realized when i was putting this haul together that almost everything was NYX, so i thought that i could make this post even more specific and just tell you about some new NYX products i bought.

powder brush (02) – i was in the market for a new setting powder brush, and i’m usually not too picky. as long as it seems well made and it’s super soft, it’s fine with me. well let me tell ya, this is the softest brush EVER. i just wanna sit there and run i across my cheek all day, but that would be weird so i’ll try to refrain.

 

duo chromatic illuminating powder – this product was a total impulse purchase. my sister snapchatted me about these a few weeks ago, and i’m pretty sure i went to ulta the same day and bought one. this one has a pink duo chrome, which i love because it’s a little bit more natural. meanwhile, my 15 year old sister is a badass, wears the purple one and KILLS IT.

matte bronzer (deep tan) – pretty much just waiting for my lorac tantilizer bronzer to either run out completely or shatter in thousands of unusable little pieces so i can open this. i love a good matte bronzer, so i have high hopes for this bad boy.

micro brow pencil (taupe) – a forever repurchase. it’s made the holy grail product list and i it will never be replaced.
dear nyx, please don’t discontinue this product. xoxo, em

lip liner pencil (mauve) – another repurchase. my current one is down to a lil nub so i thought it was time to replace it. this is a great natural “your lips but better ” color. i used to wear this almost everyday and i’m not sure why i stopped. i’m definitely happy i “rediscovered ” this color!!
