HUGE September Haul!

I think I went a little bit overboard crazy with new makeup this month. But I'm surprisingly happy with just about everything that I got!

**extras, pictures, swatches, & reviews below**

Products I got:
NYX eye shadows (Atlantic, Golden Orange, Irises)
NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses (Sunrise, Burgundy, Plush Red)
NYX Lipliner Pencils (Hot Pink, Plush Red)
La Femme Creme Rouge blush (Peach Parfait)
La Femme pressed eye shadows (Dark Brown, Silver)
La Femme Creamy Cake Liner (Black)
China Glaze Nail Polishes (Cruisin', Tree Hugger, Breakin')
Zoya Matte Nail Polishes (Dovima, Posh)
Proclaim Olive Hot Oil Treatment

Extras not in the video:
N.Y.C. Lipstick (Blue Rose)
Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick (Peachy Scene)
NYX Lipliner Pencil (Nectar)
Revlon Colorstay Soft & Smooth Lipstick (Smooth Nude)
Rimmel Glam Eyes mascara
Coastal Scents Synthetic Deluxe Crease Brush
China Glaze Nail Polish (Scarlet)
Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish (615 Night Before)

These are great colors, good and pigmented. Cork is a really pretty color.
It's close to my skin tone, so it doesn't really show up too well.
Overall these NYX shadows are great though!

This is a GORGEOUS silver color. SUPER SUPER pigmented, and it was only $2.99!

Here I show it wet and dry.
It doesn't look much different because the color is already so pigmented. There is a slight difference off camera.

I got this for contouring. It's a matte dark brown. Awesome pigmentation, and very fine-milled shadow, which I love because it goes on super smooth.
Great for a smoky eye look!

This one I wasn't so hot about. No matter how much I wet the liner it just wouldn't get darker.
It stays on pretty well, although washes off really easily with water.
They have a Cake Liner (not creamy) that I'm going to go and buy, and see how that works for me. If it doesn't do much of anything, I think I'll stick with my Coastal Scents Gel Liner

This is one of my favorites! Although I can't find anywhere to buy it online!
It's a cream blush from La Femme. They had a few different colors at the beauty supply store I got it at. Amazing pigmentation, and it lasts so much longer than powder blushes I've worn.
This is the perfect "fresh-faced, pink-peach color".
If I find out where to get it online I will put a link :)

This made my hair really super soft and shiny. Olive oil is great for your skin and your hair.
I got it at Sally Beauty Supply for $1.79. When it's on sale it's only 99cents!

Another bunch of favorites of mine. The lip glosses are really pigmented, not too sticky...a little on the thick side, but not enough to be concerned about. They all smell wonderful, too.
The lipliners stay on like nobody's business!
Awesome colors and are hard to rub off (which is a good thing if you're going out and wearing them)

I'm going to do a review on this so I'll just show you it :)

This is another NYX lipliner pencil I got. Good nude color, with a little hint of sheen.

From top: NYC Lipstick in Blue Rose, Wet 'n' Wild Fantasy Makers Lipstick in Black, Revlon ColorStay Soft & Smooth Lipstick in Smooth Nude, and Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Peachy Scene

This brush is GREAT! It was only about $2 at Animal Friendly and SUPER soft! I love it because it's really thin, great for small eyes, or just getting color concentrated into the crease. I like it because the bristles are a bit long, which reminds me a little bit of the MAC 222 brush. Not quite as long as the MAC one, but does about the same job!
No smell, no shedding.

From left: Tree Hugger, Breakin, Cruisin, and Scarlet

Just gorgeous! This dries fast (I wouldn't really say 60 seconds though), and is an awesome deep bluish purple color. It's just about the shiniest nail polish also. Lasts a long time, too. For a drugstore brand I would definitely recommend this nail polish.
These are awesome nail polishes. It's from the Zoya Mat Velvet collection. You can use a basecoat, but dont' use a topcoat. They dry to a matte finish. It's so cool!
Only thing is with these, you have to work kind of fast, don't go over the same spot over and over or it will show. It ends up smoothing out bumps though by the time it's dry.
The red is called Posh. It's cool but not my favorite of the two. It dries to a matte satin finish.
The black is called Dovima. This is AWESOME! It dries to an almost "granite"-looking finish.
I think the black would be really cool for guys, because it's not shiny.
Only problem with these though, is because you don't wear a topcoat the polish wears off pretty fast. Mine started chipping the next day =/
