Mini Makeup Haul for Treat Yo Self Day

Hi everyone! A few days ago, it was Treat Yo Self Day… the best day of the year! Naturally I felt the need to treat myself to some new makeup. So when I got off work, I stopped by Ulta and picked some goodies up. And so here it is — a mini makeup haul!

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+

Mini Makeup Haul // IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+

I’m seriously obsessed with the IT Cosmetics CC cream. This is the third tube I’ve purchased since I first tried it earlier this year. I usually use the original CC cream but for some reason, I decided to get the illuminating one. Actually, it’s mainly so I don’t have to put too much effort into contouring or highlighting. And also so I look more awake and can wear less makeup on lazy days. Although my skin is combination/oily, I still love how it looks on me!

Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette

Mini Makeup Haul // Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette

I randomly picked this up because Rimmel products were 20% off and I thought I’d try a drugstore contour kit. It’s also nice having bronzer, blush, and highlighter all in one kit. It makes packing so much lighter and easier! Rimmel’s Kate sculpting palette in “coral glow” caught my attention because my skin is warm toned and I just love the color coral! I still have yet to try this kit and I’ll definitely keep you updated. Expect a review soon. 😘

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel

Mini Makeup Haul // Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel

I’ve used the Benefit Gimme Brow volumizing eyebrow gel before and I decided to go back to it. Again, it’s mostly for my lazy days. I start work at 8am from Monday through Friday and I STRUGGLE to wake up early and do my makeup. Along with the IT Cosmetics CC cream, Benefit’s Gimme Brow does just the job to help me look awake without too much effort. And like I didn’t just roll out of bed before leaving for work! Gimme Brow is a life saver.

NYX Sharpener

Mini Makeup Haul // NYX Sharpener

I recently bought my first lip liner. *GASP!* I know, I don’t know how I survived without lip liner before. But when my lip liner finally got dull, I realized I didn’t have a sharpener. I never needed one because I always use liquid eyeliner. I had to grab my mom’s to sharpen my liner before going out of town one weekend. Then I finally decided to get my own. And I found this 2-in-1 NYX sharpener, which has a regular sized sharpener and jumbo-sized sharpener for all your sharpening needs. How could you say no to that?!

Well that’s my mini makeup haul. I’ll be posting product reviews in the near future so look out for them!
