Crazy Over Buying Haul

I'm currently home right now for spring break, which means too much shopping. Now I normally don't buy this much stuff, but I'm giving up shopping for Lent and wanted to get everything out of the way before that ban goes into effect.

Urban Decay Naked Palette, Forever 21 Fake Lashes, and Jesse's Girl eye dust in Pink Glitz

I mentioned ordering the Naked Palette last week and I got it when I got home. I was over the moon. I ordered a couple other things, but didn't include them in this haul.
The fake lashes were just a random buy. I was at Forever 21 getting socks and these caught my eyes at the checkout counter.
The eye dust is just something I've been wanting to try, but can't find Jesse's Girl products near my school.

China Glaze Nail polish in For Audrey
China Glaze Crackle in Crushed Candy and Fault Line
Sephora for OPI polish in IM Beauty
Slatkin & Co Candles in Pineapple Mango, Vanilla Coconut, Pink Sangria, and Pineapple Orchid (from Bath and Body Works)

I got the crackle because I had been wanting some and thought now was the perfect time to get some for myself (I'm giving away another bottle in my giveaway). The For Audrey polish was just something my mother picked out for me.
I'm not allowed to burn candles at school so whenever I'm home I burn them constantly. I just needed more and want to try a bunch of different scents.
Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat
Revlon Lipgloss Pearl Plum
NYC Lip Stain in Forever Fuchsia
NYC Lip Gloss Mulberry St. Mocha, Chelsea Rose, Metro Mauve, Carnegie Melon, Downtown Brown, Riverside Rouge, and Plaza Punch

The Sally Hansen and Revlon products were bought with coupons from CVS. The NYC products were items I wanted but just couldn't get a hold of around school. Let me just say the Lip Stain is AMAZING! I'm pretty much in love with it!

Nars Laguna Bronzer
Chanel Nail Polish in Black Pearl
MAC Kissable Lipcolour in So Vain and Vanity Fair
MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam Cyndi

I was so happy to find the Viva Cyndi at my MAC counter near home. I want to get one before it was discontinued but it was sold out everywhere! The same with the kissable lipcolours from the Peacocky Collection.
I've been wanting the Chanel polish for a while but hadn't gotten around to it, but knew I probably wouldn't be able to get it after Easter. I love it, it's on my nails now.

The famed Tangle Teezer and Body Shop Body Butter in Coconut.

My hair has been failing out from stress and I hear the Tangle Teezer is great for keeping your hair healthy. So far, I'm not impressed or disappointed. My hair is still falling out.

MAC eyeshadows in Amber Lights, Embark and Ricepaper.

While at the MAC counter the MUA did my eyes in these shades and I just loved it. So far I'm impressed with the colors.

Much needed MAC eye brow liner.
Bobbi Brown corrector.

I've been looking forward to getting the corrector for some time but wanted to make sure I got the right shade. I went to the Bobbi Brown and received the worse service of my life. I've never left a store/counter so angry and disappointed. I even emailed Bobbi Brown to tell them how disappointed I was. I got this online, but I don't think I'll be going back to Bobbi Brown any time soon.

Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache hand creme

This is my favorite purchase. I absolutely love the smell. I am constantly smelling my hands, people probably think I'm crazy. This stuff smells exactly like Pistachio ice cream. Yum.

I got one of the MAC start up kits from my MAC counter at Nordstrom. It included Prep and Prime for Lashes, Zoom Lash, Eye Makeup Remover, and eyeliner in Nightsky.

The eyeliner was pretty much the reason for me buying this. This is a re-promoted color from a past collection, but I bought it because it reminded me of an eyeliner from my past. I thought it was similar to my Toni and Tina eyeliner, but its really not. I don't have the eyeliner anymore to compare them, I'm not even sure the company is still around.

I got some other things that I just haven't gotten around to taking pictures of, not sure I will. Mostly its nail polish and random drugstore beauty products. Hope you enjoy!
