Long time, no post! Back with a haul!

My sincerest apologies for not updating this blog at all through this year. I've been super busy graduating high school, finishing up exams, and turning in job applications. Some super exciting things have happened in my life since January and I can't wait to share it with you guys in the coming months :) 

I thought it'd be fitting to include a haul that I recently bought a few days ago as I'm getting back into the groove of posting more frequently. I won a 20 dollar gift card towards Target from my school and I decided to pick up some beauty essentials. Now onto the products -

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in Shades 120 & 125:
This is a second repurchase for me. I don't necessarily like the lasting power of this foundation but I do love mixing this with my longer lasting foundations (like Mac's Prolong Wear and Revlon's Colorstay foundations) to thin it out and make application easier. Also they are great for short-term wear. I decided to get one a shade darker for the summer and to mix with my lighter foundations! 

Maybelline Modern Metallic Quads in Enchanted Forest & Chai Latte:
These palettes have gotten tons of hype over the blog world and on youtube and I decided to pick up a few. I swatched some of these colors and I'm not impressed with Enchanted Forest - a more detailed review will be coming up soon with swatches. I do really love Chai Latte 

Maybelline Define a Brow Pencil in Light Brown:
LOVE LOVE LOVE this so far. The brush on the end is pretty much useless but I love this product. As many of you know, I have a small bald spot on my eyebrow and I'm constantly looking for new brow products to help cover it up and I really like this so far. The actual product is so thin, creating hair like lines that make application easy and the best part is that it's retractable! The color is pretty good, I wish it was a tad less warm though but it's not a major downfall. I recommend this, a more in dept review will also be coming up. 

Elf Blush Brush:
Since I loved the power and the complexion brushes from Elf's 3 dollar line I figured I'd include the blush brush. It's pretty small in comparison to the complexion brush. I have yet to try this out so I will do an in dept review of the Elf brushes I own in the future! 

Elf Copper Glitter Liner:
Only 1 dollar so I figured why not! It actually surprised me how much I love this. If you are looking for a glitter liner, check out Elf's dollar line for some. I love popping glitter in my inner corners! I will probably buy more colors :)

Surprised on how many Maybelline products I managed to purchase! I look forward to reviewing the new products later on. Thanks for reading! Comment below if you have any questions and I'll be sure to get back at you.
