Haulage and Mineral E/S Collection :)

Hey guyyss!! I'm doing a MASSIVE post due to the fact that I'll be gone this weekend to Tampa and no blogging for me :(. But when I get back expect muchas more!!!!

SOOOO let's start with my haul from Black Friday/Cyber Monday. YAYYYY!!!! I went to go get my sephora box and lookie lookie my TKB box was there too! supppplieess!!! (if said in korean accent comes out to be SURRRRPPPRRRRISEEE :) try it you know you want too ;) )

First off my coastalscents haul from before:
Finally got my hands on one of these. Gel Liners from coastalscents... this one's in truffle.
I would have done a swatch but uhmmm it looked like shit on my hand... quite literally
Can you see I used a wittle? Isn't the packaging cute?
Compared to MAC Blacktrack fluid line. MAC's packaging is bigger but don't be fooled. They're exactly the same weight. 3g/0.1 oz
My very own supply of CRACKKKK ... actually Kaolin Clay. Used in my blushes, and in facemasks, especially for acne. Seriously check out any face mask you own and see if there's some of this stuff in there. I was amazed when I saw it was in my neutrogena and my proactiv. Just gonna use it straight out the bag no additives! Just water.... we'll see how that goes
As for this purchase... FRIGGEN AMAZING!!! I've heard of all the amazing healing properties of Shea Butter and this stuff's unrefined so it has all those bad boys straight outta Africa, my motherland lol. Using this for my ecsema on my hands and my acne scars on my face and so far it's been kicking the asses of many an expensive brand... this was only $8.50 and at the rate it's going it'll last me like ten years. Except that I'm going to make whipped shea butter out of it... like body butters WOOT WOOT. i'm excited
Sephora & TKB... YAYYY
What is this???
Why... it's a palette!!! How neat...
With tins too for... ? Pressing pigments of course and creating specialized palettes woot woot. I'm making some for christmas presents!!! how exciting... i'll post when I have one finished.
Sephora's Turn... $15 off this package buddy!!! and free shipping :)
Sephora samples are the best :) I'm excited to try these out especially the icelandic eye relief cream since I've been hesitant on buying that despite my utter love for the rest of the line.
hehe... I made them gift wrap it for me :) ... i mean it was a gift... just for myself :) and the box is SUPER cute.. The other one I got last year was a lot bigger. This one's rather cute\
and of course on the
Stila Lip Glazes!!! I've never tried these before so why not a sampler pack ehh?
My lips with Raisin #21

My lips with Vanilla #11
HOLY CRAP... I'm in love with these. They are sooo beautiful and shiny and they are just the right amount of color. I can't wait to try the other ones on. They're a bit sticky but not as sticky as MAC's lipglasses and they smell delishness too.
AHHH from the mother of all things colored: Urban Decay 24/7 Liners... another never try before product. And must say I love these too.
Swatches: from top to bottom- zero, lucky (MY FAVOOOOOORRRITE), covet, electric and lust
This is lust on... kind of really creepy close up like this but I love the color. I especially love purple liners, eyeshadows etc..
yahhh baby sexamalicious. i love this colour (lucky). friggen hot

My notecard I wrote to myself:

Alright now... my mineral e/s collection. All of these I've made, some of them however are recipes I've made from Coastalscents ... they will be pointed out.
Favorite out of this batch: Shimmer moss

Favorite out of this batch: ... ugh I love them all. prolly jamaican sun/ice queen

my favorite: skyy vodka even though it's a pale blue and rarely used I still love the colour

These are recipes that came with TKB's mica kit... I love them all

Sock 'em is my personal favorite out of these... my crown joy so far

Timberwolf is one I made and the other two are TKB recipes and I love LOVE SONG

These are all mines and Forever Purple was a struggle to recreate MUFD (hence the forever)'s purple color. I love it lol

Barbie is mine, otheres TKB. Burnished is a BEAUTIFUL color... this swatch doesn't really do it justice

I love this color to put over browns/golds just because it really looks like pieces of gold flakes. It's beautiful if I may say so myself ;). The picture came out blurry... oh well
I love Chopper... another sore attempt to copy Urban Decay's Chopper

These are all Coastalscent's colors whose recipes I found in their manual or on their forum

ehhh don't like these colors except peach which is a nice base colour

All coastalscent's colors and i am MADLY IN LOVE with luxe... it is an amazing color. It looks kind of orangey in the pic but honestly it's amazing.
So unfortunately I will miss you guys but I must embrace the real world sometimes. I'm excited for Tampa since I haven't seen my three besties Shanice, Ashley and Grace-C in a while SO YAYYY!!! plus sometimes everyone needs an escape... even from Miami.
