My Beauty Wishlist

I'm boredddd. So I decided to gather all the things I wanted (beauty wise) and put them on a list :)
I plan on making more of these wish lists with clothing, games, and books as well - when I have nothing better to do that is.

Sorry I did two separate collages -- the mac backgrounds were black, and it would have bothered me if I put them on the white background with the others :P OCD much?

Anywayyy, here's everything I want:
Tarte True Blood LE Palette
Lime Crime Lipsticks in Coquette, My Beautiful Rocket, and D'Lilac.
Tarina Tarantino Pearl Glow Primer
Michael Kors Leg Shine Perfume thingy
Nars Illumainator in Copacabana
Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure
Revlon Lipstick in Soft Nude
Mac Eyeshadows in Beauty Marked & Cranberry
Mac Haute & Naughty Mascara
& Mac Viva La Glam Lady Gaga Lipstick (#2).

I don't even really like huge eyeshadow palettes. I am not certain why I don't, but I loveeee True Blood! So I must have this eye kit! It also comes with a mini primer and mascara - and something else I believe. I love Tarina Tarantino products. From her jewelry to her makeup - everything's greatt! Also, I have ordered a couple of Lime Crime lipsticks already off of EBay (they were only $14.99 w. free shipping - on Lime Crime's site they are 16 + shipping) but I haven't received them just yet. I ordered Great Pink Planet and Cosmopop! Hopefully I will get those soon & can do a review or something. Idk :) Anywayyy, also I have never ordered any Mac products - ever. I don't want to order anything off EBay because most likely, they're all fakes. And the closest Mac store is 30 minutes away - plus, when I get paid I don't wanna spend that much on makeup :/ Haha. I don't mind spending money I make online on stuff that I want - but money I get from my actual job - I just can't do it :P I'm a crazy person lol.

I know this has nothing to do with my beauty list -- well, in a way I guess it does -- but I have 4 new colors coming to my collection of Thirtyonewest eyeshadows :) I have a bright yellow (Goldilocks), a dark gold (Cleopatra), a dark sparkly navy blue (Anchor's End), and a dark brown/purple color (Sugar Pot)!
I wanted to create the Sugar Pot color for myself - because I have always wanted a pretty smokey brown/purple color that's mixed - but cannot find any! So I decided to make my own. I was also having trouble creating the name for it - and my love bug Joshua always calls me Sugar Pot - so I figured - why not? :) 
I can't wait to start creating those :) I am also going to be doing makeup looks using my eyeshadows on here soon.

Well, that's all for now. Tomorrow morning I do not have to work (thank God!) - so I will be heading to plenty of yard sales - Woowoo! So maybe I shall do a yard sale haul tomorrow or something :P I also have a ton of clothing that needs to be listed on my Etsy site that I plan on doing tomorrow & Sunday - so be sure to keep a lookout in our Etsy shop for the next couple of days :)

First Sephora Order

I placed my first Sephora order last weekend and received it a few days ago! I decided to order some expensive makeup finally. I really only wanted to place an order because I saw that the Tarina Tarantino eyeshadows were on sale for $5! But I decided to go ahead and get more stuff because my boyfriend wanted to get me some goods :). I got a total of 5 items for $53 with free shipping - not too bad huh?
That's because 3 things I got were only $5 :P haha. I got:
Sephora's Blush Me blush in Coral Frisson - which was on sale for $5.
Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden - $19.
Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer - $19
Tarina Tarantino's Eye Dream Hypershadow in Bibarucci -$5
& Tarina Tarantino's Eye Dream Hypershadow in Electric Butterfly - $5.

My little review of things:
I haven't used the Tarina Tarantino eyeshadows yet - but I swatched them and they are pretty.

Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion works greattttttt. The only other primer i've used is the Elf Eyelid Primer - which sucks ass compared to the Primer Potion! Just a little note - only use this eye primer if you plan on wearing it for a longggg time. I used it last night to take pictures of some of the new shadows I created and I just left them on for about 5 minutes - and I tried to remove my eye makeup with wipes - it wasn't coming off. I had to rub the shit out of my eye just to get it off. My eye was sore after that. So yeah, this product is worth $19 if I do say so myself.

Sephora's Blush me - I don't like it. You can't even tell I have on any blush at all - it just blends into my bronzer or doesn't show up at all :P lol.

Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer - this is a good product. I'm not sure if i'd pay $19 again for another - but it works good. I'm just really cheap when It comes to purchasing makeup items, so if it's $19 - it better do a damn good job lol. You can also use this as an eyeshadow primer as well - but I haven't tried that yet.

I think once I get some more cash, I will be ordering more of Tarina Tarantino's products while they are on sale for $5 - there are 3 more eyeshadows I need to get and her lipglosses are on sale as well :P. I love Tarina Tarantino's jewelry - and I have a few pieces myself - and one day I went to her website and saw that she started creating her own makeup and selling it at Sephora I about shat my pants. I had to try some. So firstly, I purchased her mascara off of EBay - because it was only $9 on there brand new - versus the $19 on Sephora - so I got it. That mascara is the BEST mascara I've ever used (of course, i've only used drugstore mascara)! It makes my lashes really long and full looking.
Anywayyy, I'm just blabbing on :P I started blogging on my other shop blog again - 
So you should go check it out. That's my blog where I chit chat about my shop, new products, and what not. I just posted two blogs today about my new eyeshadows (I have 4 new ones, btw)!
