Hi dolls. So I, um, bought some things... I couldn't resist some amazing sales!

So recently, HauteLook had Urban Decay on its site! For those who don't know, HauteLook is an amazing website that has daily sale events on beauty products, designer clothes, hair products, home stuff - basically everything 50-75% off original price! Say whaaa-? Exactly. If you're not signed up, you should be. They recently had Urban Decay, NYX, theBalm and Juicy Couture!
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Ammo - SO excited to try out this palette! I can't wait to wear Maui Waui and Oil Slick. Palette comes with 10 shades! Also, I love the graphics on this palette - the skulls, gun and hearts are cute touches!
  • Urban Decay Mariposa Palette - Oh goodness. Clearly, I wouldn't buy this unless I was dying to try it, but I'm so excited to try this too. The packaging itself is adorable. The palette comes in this beautiful tin with a butterfly etched on it. Unfortunately, my tin came with a tiny scratch on it, but it doesn't really bother me. Out of this palette, I'm most excited to try Honey, Rockstar and Spotlight.
Blog Sale
If you haven't experienced the awesomeness that is a blog sale, I recommend joining some beauty swap groups on FaceBook or scouring beauty swap groups on (where I found mine). Everything from limited edition items to new releases can all be found in these groups. I've been a member of MAC Cosmetics on LiveJournal for about a month now and came across some items I had been dying for. Sent my PayPal, received the items, bing bang boom! * I recommend always researching and knowing exactly what you're getting when purchasing from a blog sale. Ask questions. Check out their feedback. 
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Ransom - Since falling in love with Rockstar (in my May Favorites), I needed to buy more of these! Ransom is this gorgeous purpleish blue. I can't wait to rock this!
  • MAC Sushi Kiss - I found it brand new in the box on this blog sale! Woohoo!
  • NARS Orgasm Blush - Need I say more? I felt I needed to buy this and see what all the hub bub is about! Found new, in the box.

Ulta is my home away from home. A lot of random things were buy one, get one half off there last week so I took advantage of that.
  • c. Booth Tahitian Monoi Dry Oil Spray - I don't even know what made me pick this up. I love c.Booth products, but I'm not a fan of body oils. Maybe I was curious to see what a dry oil was. Who knows. I ended up trying this out right than and there in the store and fell in love! It smells amazing - like warm vanilla mixed with coconut oil. The oil dries super fast on your body and leaves them so soft and not greasy at all. I ended up buying one for my mom as well.
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan - I've heard so many things about these lip creams so I decided to grab Milan and try it out. I've only swatched it, but so far, I likey. 
  • NYX Orange Soda Lip Stick - Everyone and their mom has this. Naturally I had to have it too.

Awww yus! Part of my RiRi order came in plus some other goodies I ordered. My two RiRi lipsticks I ordered are backordered until mid-July.
  • MAC Florabundance Lipglass - I've heard so many great things about this and have seen it in so many different beauty vlogger's videos. Had to try it!
  • MAC Myth - Another lipstick that I've heard so many amazing things about. I've been on the hunt for the perfect nude lip and I think this with Florabundance over it will look great!
  • MAC Coral Bliss - Squee! The perfect coral lipstick for summer :) SO excited to try this baby out.
  • RiRi Loves MAC Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer/Blush - The only part of the collection that wasn't backordered for me :( Ah well. Love that this bronzer is matte. I'm almost afraid to wear this. It's so pretty!
So those are my most recent purchases! What have you bought recently?
