December 1, 2013 Haul!

A few weeks back I did a one-day shopping trip in the States with a friend, these are the goodies I came back with!
L to R front row: Nails Inc. Topping Lane, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Maya, Sephora Collection False Eyelashes in Paparazzi
L to R back row: Butter London Backstage Basics, Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV, Wet N' Wild Mini Fast Dry Nail Collection 

This is Nails Inc. special effects nail polish in Topping Lane, isn't it adorable! Found this is the clearance section of a local Shoppers Drugmart for $5, not bad considering Sephora sells this brand for $11.50 a bottle!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Maya, I have a mini of Trooper (the black shade), and it helped me overcome my fear of liquid eyeliners, so when I found Maya (chocolate brown) for sale for $4.99 at Sephora in JCP I snatched it up immediately! I love this eyeliner, I was slightly worried that it would be dried up since it was in the clearance section, but it isn't! Gorgeous chocolate brown shade perfect for a more work appropriate cat eye!

Sephora Collection False Eyelashes in Paparazzi, were also kicking around the clearance section of Sephora in JCP for $2.99! I couldn't resist, even though I've yet to wear them. I'll have to figure out more places to go to get some use out of these!

Butter London Backstage Basics set includes L to R: Hardwear PD Quick Dry Topcoat, Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat, Powder Room Lacquer Remover, Rosie Lee, and a nail file.

I'd been humming and hawing on this set for a while, the Canadian price always seems too high, so when I was browsing a Macy's and I was told there were only 2 more of this set left, I grabbed it and proceeded to figure out which polish I'd add.  Rosie Lee has been on my list for a while, and I don't have other rose gold type polishes so that's what I went with!

Wet N' Wild Mini Fast Dry Nail Collection Includes: Everybody Loves Redmond, The Gold & the Beautiful, SaGreena the Teenage Witch, Saved by the Blue, Buffy the Violet Slayer, Silvivor, Party of Five Glitters, and Clear Coat

This was $9.99 at Wegman's and since Wet N' Wild are scarce here in Canada I picked it up.  My experience so far is quite positive, as the colours I've tried have been fast-drying and pretty long-wearing! This set would be a great gift for a nail polish lover or a teenager just getting into makeup!

Finally from Ulta I picked up the new Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV, isn't it gorgeous?

It includes 16 eye shadows, liquid eyeliner in black, a deluxe size mascara, a deluxe size primer potion, and a mini-speaker key chain.

I'm loving the eye shadows here and finally understand why everyone raves about the quality and creaminess of these shadows! I also like that this is a more neutral palette, since I don't find myself using bright colours too often for eye shadow.

What have you picked up lately?

Thanks for reading!
