I know it's bad, but I really only ever replace foundation, eyeliner and mascaras. I mean, every now and then I'll throw away eyeshadow but to me, if it still works like new, why throw it away?
I mainly use the make-up on myself and I always clean it with alcohol and wipes so I really see no problem in holding onto eyeshadows and powders. haha
ANYWAYS. Because I was needing new foundations, I thought I would splurge a little bit. A lot of new ones came out so I though I would give the ones I've been eyeing for a while a try.
This is what I picked up from Ulta. I actually bought some stuff in store which is not pictured, and then afterwards, there was a 40% off sale on all NYX products. I unfortunately, just had my wisdom teeth removed so I wasn't in any shape to go out and get it so I bought it online. Came just in time also since I had a wedding to go to the day after it arrived!
Alright~ So this is just an over head shot of everything I bought online.
I actually picked up 6 foundations. 3 in store, 3 online. For color reference, I use NW18 in Mac but can also use NC 20. I'm neutral toned but most things with a yellow undertone make me look really orange or yellow.

2: Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse in 040 Natural Beige. Aprox:$14.99
3: NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation in 02 Soft Beige. $8.99 on sale. Orig $14.99

This is a picture of the misc. stuff I purchased. I already had my make-up planned for the wedding, but I'm not too fond of loose eyeshadows (which is what I was planning on using) so I thought I would buy a few pressed ones. Unfortunately, none of them were what I was looking for.
1:Nyx Pore Filler. On sale: $7.79
2: Nyx Xtreme lip Creme in Nude Peach Fuzz. On sale: $3.59
3: Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean and Rust. On sale: $ 2.69 each.

This was the last foundation I bought. You can use it as a powder foundation or a setting powder. I do both depending on how I feel. haha
Nyx Stay Matte not Flat Powder Foundation in Soft Beige. $5.99 on sale.
I really love brown eyeshadows so I saw this as the perfect traveling palette for me. (Even though my whole make-up train case is my Traveling stuff. LOL)
Nyx 10 Color eyeshadow Palette. The Runway collection in Champagne and Caviar.
So far I've used all of the foundations, so reviews to come. (I've used the Revlon colorstay foundation before so it's not new to me)
Swatches and reviews for everything else!
Oh! This was also my look!
And with the boo~ :3
