I just noticed that I haven't done a haul post in a while... even though I've been crazy busy I still make sure that I take pictures of things that I bought here & there.... but I didn't realize they've been pilin up on me... dooood!! I didn't know I got A LOT of stuff!!! but don't trip people! most of these are from the month of February.... & most of them I need for my makeup gigs.... most of the products were bought from special sales at different stores....

consider your self warned, this post is uber pic heavy!!

random stuff from different stores... all of these are exclusively for my makeup kit...

Milani Liquif'Eye metallic eye liner pencil
(bought as a BOGO 50% off with the Milani lipstick shown below)
lovin this eye liner!!!! it's now my go-to e/l!! now I understand why a lot of girls loves it... 

Milani Mandarina lipstick... 
the biggest trend this spring is the bright neony orange lip color... just gotta have this one... the perfect bright orange lip shade! can't wait to try it out with a spring eye look.... 

it's supposed to look really orange but on this one it looks reddish...

Maybelline NY Dream Matte mousse foundation & powder (BOGO 50% off) 

in Honey Beige Medium 4 

Honey Medium 3-4 

(again the Milani lipstick in Mandarina) & Maybelline NY Fit Me powder in 220
since I fell in love with the Fit Me liquid foundation, I thought I'd try the powder as well... & I'm glad I did!! it's goes really well with the foundation.... I love applying it with the powder puff that comes with it... it gives a nice matte finish on my skin...

L'Oreal True Match foundation in W6 
bought this for a client, but didn't work out with her shade, so I exchanged this for my shade(W4) later on....

& instead the shade that worked on the client is
