Hey Guys

I am starting this new series titled Makeup Confessions. The title is pretty self-explanatory, I will be discussing makeup, things I love and new things I am trying.

Ok for the longest time I was a complete MAC-head. I only used MAC cosmetics. I purchased all of makeup, brushes, lashes, makeup remover, etc from MAC exclusively.

I have worn MAC since I was 16, pretty much when I started wearing makeup. So I have never used any other brands. Because makeup is one of my interests I decided I need to branch out. MAC has been great I have not come across a MAC product that I was dissatisfied with, nor will stop buying or using MAC. However, because of my love for makeup I thought I needed to diversify my makeup collection.

My current makeup collection

Since I only shopped at MAC I had no clue where to start. In order to get ideas and reviews of products I turned to YouTube. I watched videos of reviews and tutorials to get an idea of what I would like to try. The first thing I decided I needed was an eyeshadow palette, so I ordered the Sedona Lace 168 pro eyeshadow palette. Yes, people this palette contains 168 colors. The reason I picked this palette was because all the reviews raved that the colors were very pigmented. This is what really peaked my interest in this product. This product costs $29.95 at SedonaLace.com. I did a quick search and found a coupon code that gave me $4 off! I am still waiting for this item to arrive in the mail, but 168 shadows for $25 is an amazing steal. I usually pay $14-$18 for one MAC shadow. So I am very excited to try these shadows. I will be reviewing this product once I have used it for a while.

Next I needed to add some makeup brushes to my collection. Again after watching reviews and videos on YouTube, I am across E.L.F. brushes. ( Eyes, Lips & Face). I found an amazing coupon code for the ELF website, the coupon gave me 50% off of all of their studio items. The coupon code was ECD21. I got 4 brushes (blush, foundation, complexion & eyeshadow brush), a brush holder, two brush cleansers & tons more. The brushes cost $3 because I had the coupon I only paid $1.50 per brush! This again seemed like a steal to me. I actually did a pretty large haul from ELF. I will also review these products once I use them for some time.

Finally I got some NYX products. I picked these products up at my local Ulta. I got NYX’s soft matte lip creams. This product goes on like a lip gloss but dries to become a matte lipstick. The colors are amazing and I loved the concept. I got two Monte Carlo, which is a deep red. I also got Abu Dhabi, which is the perfect creamy nude color. I tried these on and I love them so far. I know I will be buying more. This item costs $5.99, but I had a coupon for Ulta that gave me $5 dollars off! So I got one for .99 cents. I will also do a formal review on this product.

All in all I am glad I started trying different things. I found some amazing things so far. I also am very happy with these prices! Some other products I want to try are Milani, Inglot, La Femme and a few more.

Till next time
