Vacation Haul

Let me start off by saying how much respect I now have for bloggers. Since I started blogging I realized how difficult it is to take pictures. Always trying to capture the right color and get everything into focus while trying to avoid awkward add-ons is difficult to say the least. So let me start off by saying I'm still learning. My camera isn't perfect and by no means is my photo-taking perfect. Please bear with me.
On to the fun stuff now!
As I said in my last post I just got back from Rome. Once I go through my hundreds of pictures I'll share some of them. Until then I thought I'd share some of the beauty related items I got over there.

Isn't that just the cutest makeup bag? I got it at the store Beauty Point. I had never heard of the store, but its a fun store that seems like a mix between Sephora and Ulta for you US people. I also got a pencil sharpener at Sephora, nothing special, but cheap and I needed it. Also I got a mascara from Essence. I had never seen it before, so I figured why not.

Very wet mascara, with a pretty basic wand. I actually really like the mascara. For the price (3 Euro) you can't go wrong. I was thinking of doing a comparsion between this mascara and DiorShow. If you're interested let me in the comments.

This is another purchase from Beauty Point. A very pretty highlighter and two duo eyeshadows. I couldn't capture the highlighter very well, but let me tell you it is beautiful. Completely different depending on the angle. Also its much more pink in real life. I'd tell you the names of each items but its in Italian. I can't even be sure its the name. If anyone wants the names let me know.

Both of these items are from Sephora. The first item is from Fred Farrugia, I think the color is 0151A. Very pretty! The next is from the Italian brand Pupa, it the Party Make Up Kit. Great neutral kit.

If you want any swatches of any of the items let know! I'd love to swatch!

I'll try to post some vacation photos in the next couple of days.



  1. Wow, you bought some great things. That mascara is really good, many people compare it with the Diorshow, let me know what you think of it!


  2. I can do a post on it this week for you :)
