+ Mini haul +

So, while shopping for my latest MAC haul I came across MAC’s Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow (Veluxe Pearl). At the time, I had second thoughts about purchasing it, but when I got home I ended up YT-ing it and doing some “research” on swatches and potential looks. After everything I saw, I knew I had to go back and purchase it!

Pictures of my haul;



MAC 224 Tapered Blending brush, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Gold, and Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow




MAC 224 up close, I love this brush! As you know, I’ve been planning to buy this brush for awhile and I’m really happy that I finally did. I’ve only used it once so far, but it’s really awesome for blending in the crease.




NYX JEP in Gold – this is my first one, but I’m loving it! It’s perfect for me right now, since I’m in my whole “neutrals” phase!




And finally, MAC Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow! I love how this shadow has all sorts of awesome colors in it, Greens, Golds, Browns – I just can’t believe how beautiful it is.



Swatches: NYX JEP in Gold, Sumptuous Olive, and Sumptuous Olive with NYX JEP in Gold as a base.

I had a really hard time with capturing the true colors of this shadow on camera – the shade changes depending on where the light hits! I love it, I feel like I can create so many different looks with one eyeshadow.

All in all, I’m pretty happy with my recent purchase, but this might be my last haul in a while. :( My last semester of school is starting in a few days and I’m gonna need to make some expensive book purchases. One book alone has the price tag of about $200!

Once again, thanks for reading my blog ladies! Bye. <3
