I'm back with a little haul and a tiny giveaway!

Makeup Haul

So much for trying to post weekly!!! I truly do not know how bloggers do this frequently, it's a lot of work - so hats of to them.!!!!! Mostly it's just me being lazy when I get home from work, and then doing other errands and things on the weekend. 

In any event, I did two months of NO SHOPPING! Believe it or not it was nice not buying makeup that I truly do not need, and seeing that extra bit of money in my account has been nice as well. So I decided to do some shopping in May  - nothing crazy but just for a few things. 

I wanted to try the Cover Girl luminous foundation - i bought a color to light for my skin tone.  (duh) But I decided to keep it anyways because I figured I have the COVER FX drops I can make it darker.....

One of things that I noticed was that the foundation was clinging to my dry patches, not something I would expect from a Luminous foundation. It did look great from far away but when I looked closely I didn't care for what i was seeing. I'm going to try to use it without the COVER FX drops and see if that makes a difference. 

Well here is a pic of all the goodies I picked up these past two - three weeks. Hautelook had a sale on the Balm products. Not pictured is The Balm eye makeup remover it was $10.00 (normally $19.99) I picked up a couple of blushes and their double ended brush. From Ulta I picked up some Urban Decay concealer (not sure how I feel about it yet only used it once) I also picked up the Rapture blush and the Raputre sheer lipstick (I have the regular Rapture lipstick). The blush I must say is very pretty, it gave my cheeks a nice "glow". I picked Loracs alter ego lip gloss in CEO. I have the lipstick and figured it would be nice to pair them up. Haven't tried the Bare Minerals mineral foundation yet, but I've heard good things.  

Now for the GIVEAWAY! 

I have a few things - that I have collected from my Ipsy bags or from samples received. I haven't used any of the items. I have already given some away to family and friends so I figured what better way than to have a giveaway to someone who wants to try new things.
