'Small Illamasqua, MUFE, Sephora HAUL'

I placed 2 different orders on recently, and the first one just arrived! I really couldn't be more thrilled with what I purchased =)
First up...

Illamasqua Powder Blusher in "Lover"
 Illamasqua Powder Blusher in "Lover"... I have been lusting over this blusher for months! The color is a very vibrant apricot. As with the other Illamasqua blushers I have tried, Lover is extremely pigmented! (I highly recommend using a duo fibre brush when using this product) Illamasqua just continues to impress me!

Next up...

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Liner #14... This is by far the most exciting product I have purchased recently =) I will insert a swatch now because I can't wait for you to see the color!!

How freakin gorgeous is that?!?! #14 is a black with mulitcolor sparkles, as you can see. The Aqua Liners are waterproof and DO NOT budge once they dry. Simply amazing! MUFE also has a pretty massive color range of these liners, but #14 stood out the most to me as being something special and a product that I will no doubt get tons of use out of.

Sephora by OPI "Traffic-Stopper Copper"
Yep that's right, I broke my nailpolish ban. Oops =) But I made it 1 out of the 2 months!

Sephora by OPI in "Traffic-Stopper Copper"...  I love glitter polishes that have different size sparkles in them. Traffic-Stopper Copper has a clear base with fine and chunky bright copper glitter.

I have seen several people do manicures with glitter polish where the base is one color, then a different color glitter is added on top with it concentrated on the tip of the nail and fading up toward the cuticle. Do you know what I'm talking about?? I'm thinking of trying it out with this polish on top of maybe a light blue.... I'll post a NOTD with it, unless it is a total fail which is completely possible! haha

Have any of you tried the Aqua liners?? I'm in love!!!



  1. Illamasqua Lover is my aboslutely favourite blush, such a pretty shade. And I don't know if you've noticedd it but it has the same vanilla-y smell that MAC lipsticks have.

  2. Great haul! I wish we had illamasqua here so i can finally check out the line! :-( I will check the MUFE liners soon tho, i want a teal shade for this summer!

  3. i want to try an illamasqua blush so much! they look incredibly pigmented and lover is gorgeousss!

  4. Love the liner! Especially with the assorted colors, normally they're just silver. Super pretty!

  5. Lilit, after I read your comment I went straight away to smell the blush, and you are SO right!! haha

    Elly, the teal shade is goooorgeous isn't it?! I just don't think I would get enough use out of it to justify purchasing :(

    Victoria, if anything from Illamasqua I would recommend the powder blushers. They really are amazing!

    KL, I know isn't the color range insane?! I wish I could get them all!

  6. Just saw the traffic stopper copper nail polish and I love it! so pretty! nice post!!

  7. Lover is one of my fav blushes! Its a brighter version of MAC's Melba

  8. I love that blush color! I wonder how similar it is to MAC peaches.


    1. That's a good question, I'm not sure! I've heard a lot of good things about Peaches and have contemplated getting it several times. However, I don't have a MAC counter near me and purchasing online just isn't as fun so I haven't gotten it yet! haha Do you have Peaches?? If so, how do you like it?


I always love reading your comments!!
