December Haul and Swatches

Here is to a new start on this blog!
So it seems that I will be working to get this blog together and look like the other one does.
See my other blog here:
Let me know if there are any things you see missing or that you would like to see, since I am still in the process of getting this one up and looking the way I want it.  It will probably not be done until March though, so in the mean time I didn't want to not begin with the swatches etc.

So here we go:

The following items are the most recent purchases I have made.  I will provide links and prices below with each product.

Becca Radiant Skin Foundation
Purchased at Sephora
I purchased it in the color Buff
Purchase price is $42
It is described as (from Sephora's website)
A lightweight, medium-coverage foundation that revitalizes skin and leaves a smooth, naturally radiant finish.

Here are a few photos of the product and a swatch:

The next item I purchased is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer.  I have owned this previously in the color Honey, but it was getting a bit dark on me, so I went for a lighter shade.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Purchased at Sephora
I purchased the color Vanilla
Purchase Price- $28
It is described as (from Sephora's Website)
A creamy concealer with hydrating, multiaction skincare benefits and light diffusing technology to create a softer, smoother complexion.

Here is the link of my review on this product:

Here are a few photos and swatches:

I also picked up another Marc Jacobs Style Icon Palette in Lolita since i have been hearing so many people talking about it.  I had previously owned the starlet palette but there was way to much fall out on that one for me.  I also own a trio on the colors The Glam.  

Marc Jacobs Style Icon 07 Palette
Purchased at Sephora
I purchased the color Lolita
Purchase Price- $59
It is described as (from Sephora's Website)
A super skinny, sleek palette of seven eye shadows that harmoniously marry with a creamy, sumptuous finish.

Here is the link to my review on the palette in Starlet

Here is product photos and swatches:

I also picked up the new Urban Decay NAKED 3 Palette.  Can you tell I have been on a palette kick?!?
I had sold all my NAKED Palettes a few years ago.  I always liked the original, the 2nd one I didn't like at all.  It was too cool toned for me.  But when I heard the new 3 palette had rosy tones I was super excited and decided to purchase.  It is now available at Sephora and Ulta and I would suggest buying there instead of Urban Decay like I did.  I just couldn't wait!  haha

Urban Decay NAKED 3 Palette
I purchased it from Urban Decay
Purchase Price- $52
Description from Sephora- 
A mirrored compact packed with a dozen never-before-seen rose-hued neutrals, plus a double-ended brush and an Eyeshadow Primer Potion sampler.

Here are product photos and swatches

I also picked up a brush per the conversation I had with Susan (a friend here and on twitter)
As you all know I have been on the hunt for the perfect blush brush.
Here is hoping!

Chanel Powder Blush 01
I purchased it from Nordstrom
Purchase Price- $65
Description from Nordstrom's website-
  • Designed as a professional artistry tool to be used with Chanel products, this powder brush perfectly adapts to the shape of the face for flawless powder application and blending. The natural-fiber brush hair is formed without using scissors or razors to deliver precise makeup results.

Here is a photo of the brush.  Let me know if you would like a more detailed photo or comparison.

  1. Love your videos Lisa! I'm interested to hear your thoughts on The Lolita palette. I ordered one during the F&F sale recently and ended up returning it because as you mentioned the colors are kind of boring and I couldn't deal with the fall out.

  2. @Erin Interesting I plan to use it this week. Here is hoping it isn't as bad as the last one I had.

  3. The Naked 3 palette looks wonderful!
