Which might explain the slight influx of hauls, When I get stressed out (usually from school) I end up seeking solace in either food or retail therapy. Though I don't have time to hit the stores, I manage to do it via the interwebz. Though when I get stress and I don't have time at all to surf, that's a totally different story and a very sad one at that.
But anyway these packages came a day apart, but since I knew I was going to receive them at about the same time I waited to do a collective haul entry. For some reason it seems like I am very home bound. If you have noticed all my recent haul entries are packages... I feel so reliant on the internet.
I had bought these items from icefrost though It's a long story how I ended up buying from her. Well it's not that long but it can get rambly. ha. So yes I am back with my self-tanning mania. Even though I have a great self-tanning product that I love, I can't help but venture out and try more.
This package came in yesterday so I have tried the Coppertone Sunless Tanner out. It does produce a subtle tan effect, not entirely obvious but you can see a slight color change with just one application.
What surprised me was the product came out white, like a regular lotion.
I guess I had been too used to self tanners that come with a bronzer quality to them, this one is purely a gradual tanning lotion. The lotion does smell really good though, before the self tanner scent kicks in.
She was also really sweet to send me a little freebie
So that was the first package, moving on to the second one...
Just got this one in today. Exciting~
The main reason for me placing this order would have to be this lipstick:
This was one of the shades that Lollipop26 had raved about not too long ago. The minute I saw the swatch of this or even the product picture on her blog, I knew that by hook or by crook I had to get my hands on it. Why? Just cause it's a nude lipstick (:
When looking at the lipstick in person, it reminds me a lot of MAC's Creme D'Nude. I whipped my Creme D'Nude out and did a group shot.
They look quite similar when placed along-side each other, but here's a lipswatch of Natural Nymph.
I find that this is more of a nude then Creme D'Nude is. I think it might be because Creme D'Nude is a bit pinkier on... or it just has a little more life to it. This is actually really pale!
I do like the texture of it, it's nice and smooth on though for this particular shade I think you need to work at getting it on. It's not something you can throw on and run out. You have to make sure it's sitting right and you didn't miss a spot, get rid of the 'lipstick-line', that sort of a thing. The color is really nice but not something I would wear on it's own. I think even for me, it's too much of an extreme nude and I look sick (like ill-sick) with it alone.
Next I picked up some single eyeshadows just to try out, since I was making an order.
I searched for swatches of the eyeshadows before purchasing and Wild Wheat was probably one of the shades that everyone says not to get because it doesn't show up. Not that the pigmentation sucks, it's just so much of a skintone shade that it's doesn't show up well, geddit? Personally, that is exactly the eyshadow shade I was looking for. Like with my Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow, I wanted something that was nude on and skintoned with a nice pretty sheen.
Next eyeshadow shade I got was:
I got this because I thought it was quite a unique shade. It's like a grey at some angles and a moss green at others, really pretty!
Here are some swatches:
Non existent Wild Wheat... but you see the sheen!
So that's my little stress relief bundle right there. I would be lying if I said this is it... but this the bulk of it! ;)
Right so as usual I'm goint to go rush and get ready for my night classes, thank you all for reading!
