Collective Summer Beauty Haul | ft. Glossier, Morphe, Lime Crime, Nyx

Ugh, why can't I ever keep my money in my damn pockets! I feel like I spent way too much money this summer, but ask me if I have any regrets.. nevaaa! This haul is a collective one from the start of summer up until now, so I don't think my spending was too too out of control when it comes to beauty products. A lot of these things are products I've been meaning to try or repurchase for a while now. However, if you asked me about food....no comment

So if you haven't heard yet, Glossier has finally started shipping to Canada! Hooray! So of course I had to pick up a few things that I've been dying to try. I was subtle with my first purchase and only bought the Perfecting Skin Tint (review here) and Boy Brow (review here). From those two, I was only wow'd by one product; however, I am willing to try out a few of their other products. Their Cloud Paints have peaked my interest and have been on my wish list for a while now. Around the same time, The Ordinary finally restocked their Serum Foundation (review here) in my shade, so naturally I had to jump on that and get myself two shades. It's pretty much all I've been using throughout all of August. A month ago, I held a giveaway for my 1.5 years of blogging and when I purchased the prize from Sephora, I went ahead and treated myself to a few bits. I was actually running low on concealer at the time and since the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer (review here) has been on my wish list since last year, I thought it was finally time to pick it up. One of my coworkers also recommended the Huda Beauty liquid lipsticks to me, claiming that they had the best formula in the game right now. Would I really be a beauty blogger if I didn't put that to the test? Of course I picked up the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Venus. My thoughts on them will definitely be coming soon! I also went ahead and purchased MAC Fix+ sometime this summer as I cannot live without that mist! It's just so refreshing and makes my makeup looks a thousand times better. 

L-R: Soft Spoken, Brilliant, Teddy Bear, Venus, Tragic Fashion, Rodeo Drive, 5 Star Luxury
Last weekend, I attended IMATS for the first time. I love makeup, but I love discounted makeup even more..and that basically sums up what IMATS is. The first booth I visited was NYX where I picked up a back up of the Angel Veil Primer (review here) which is pretty much a dupe of the infamous Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. Since I've been wanting to try their Lip Suedes, I thought this was the perfect time to get it in the shade Soft Spoken. I also ended up getting their Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipstick in Brilliant on a whim. They look pretty much identical, but I really can't deny a good brown/rose lipstick. I then made my way to the Morphe booth where I spent hours in line, ugh! But it was all worth it as I got to pick up a few new brushes (more on them very soon) and three of their single eyeshadows in Rodeo Drive, 5 Star Luxury and Tragic Fashion. When I swatched them at the booth, there was no way I wasn't going to pick them up. Next stop was Bioderma where I picked up their Sensibio H2O. I can't believe I went to long without this one, but I've fallen in love all over again. It's pretty much the best micellar water I've tried ever. Last, but not least, I decided to grab one of the Lime Crime Lip Velvetines in Teddy Bear. I know there was a bit of drama in the past with that brand, but since it was an in-person transaction, I felt more confident in the purchase. I will report back with my thoughts on them!

And that's all folks! What purchases have you made recently?
