September - My Birthday Haul/Favorites

This is my birthday collective haul & favorites.  I began picking up my items in mid August and I also have good friends who spoiled me along the way to bankruptcy, lol.  I have become obsessed for the fall with army green, brown, plum/eggplant, cranberry and reddish/orange colors.

  • Sketchers Shoe

  • New Balance Sneakers

Michael Kors

Michael Todd True Organic - Antiox Serum
As soon as I tried this on my fine lines around my mouth, I immediately saw the results.  It's amazing!  I apply it in certain areas on my face and neck during the morning prior to makeup and at night after cleansing my face.

  • MAC
L to R: Lipstick, Lip glass and combination
This lip combo is so pretty.  My friend Brenda bought me this for my birthday.  Thanks girl! :)

Fluidline Eye Pencil

L to R: 'Earth Sign' and 'Black Brillance'
    I love these pencils!  It came out as limited edition with the Romancing Novel collection.  It glides on just like a fluidline (gel) and it's smudge proof.  The color 'Earth Sign' is an eggplant with a hint of brown and 'Black Brillance' is a true black.  I was told these pencils will be permanent - I sure hope so :)

    Electric Cool eyeshadows

    These eyeshadows also came out with the Romancing Novel Collection as limited edition.  However, it has also come out before in other collections.  I don't own one, but the color 'Coil' completely caught my attention.  It's a beautiful cooper eyeshadow.  I also bought 'Blacklit' for the hell of it, lol.  The best way to apply these shadows is by using your finger.  The texture is so soft and buttery.  It has a lot of shimmer like glitter but without dealing with fall out or too much fall out.

    Mixed Eyeshadows
    L to R: Natural Wilderness; Deep Fixation; Plumage; and Sketch
    Swatches over no primer

    Starting from left to right:
    • I purchased 'Natural Wilderness' from the Natural Wilderness Collection.  It's a limited satin eyeshadow that immediately caught my attention.  The color is a beautiful brown/green with a hint of yellow undertone.  
    • 'Deep Fixation' e/s was given to me.  It's a limited veluxe pearl eyeshadow, which I love!  It can be used dry or wet.
    • 'Plumage' is a permanent matte blue/green eyeshadow.  I received this e/s for free with MAC's recycling program
    • 'Sketch' is a permanent velvet plum/brown eyeshadow.  I also received this e/s for free with MAC's recycling program
    Pro Paint Pot 'Painterly'

    • NARS
    I went to the NARS Boutique shop in Soho (NYC) since I had a 30% discount. I knew that I wanted 2 eyeshadows from there new Dual Intensity Collection-
    L to R: Dione and Himalia

    I also knew that I wanted to buy a NEW Audacious lipstick.  I intended to buy "Anna" and "Fanny" but instead I purchased -
    L to R: Velvet Lip Liner 'El Agua' /Lipstick 'Dominique' and 'Vanessa'

    During the NYC Makeup Show in May, I purchased Larger than Life lip gloss 'Annees Folles' that is described as a sheer violet.  I didn't own any lipstick that agreed to my taste until I met 'Dominique' which is described as a pink lilac.  The lipstick, liner and lip gloss is the perfect combination and I love it!!!!
    Radiant Creamy Concealer 'Custard'
    This concealer is a yellow tone for light to medium complexion.  I use it to highlight my face and LOVE IT!!!!  
    •  Sephora
    Sephora Eye Shadow 'Hollywood's Calling'

    This is such a beautiful brown/coppery with gold particle eye shadow.    

    L to R: UD 'Naked' lipstick/Nars 'Organism' lip gloss/Smashbox 'Pout' lip gloss/BITE 'Meritage' lipstick pencil/Marc Jacobs 'Kissability' lip gloss/Buxom 'White Russian' lip gloss

    Do I need to say much?!  I love the fact that each product comes in a travel size.

    Ardency Inn - MODSTER Manuka Honey Enriched Pigments

    Love is the new name I have when I see Ardency Inn's eye products and that is because it's the only thing I currently own.  These intensify eye shadows are amazing!  I picked-up the two colors in the middle 'Pink Gold' and 'Royal'.  My friend Annette bought me it.  Thanks girl!
    • Ulta:

    Lorac Pro 2 Palette
     I know many people did swatches of this palette so I am attaching a picture below that I found -

    Swatches are not done by me

    Nails -
    L to R: Butter 'All Hail The Queen'; 'Brown Sugar' & 'Wallis' / ZOYA 'Marney'
    My friend Anna (thanks girl!) bought me 2 out of the 4.  I have never own or tried BUTTER nail polish.  Anna does and the color look so vibrant and pretty on her so I was super excited to try it.
