Spring 2016 haul

Did a quite a bit of damage this season!  Here's my haul and some very brief thoughts.

From left to right (roughly):

By Terry Stencil foundation brush (love), Tom Ford Opale cream eye shadow (pretty color but doesn't hold up as well as some of my other cream shadows), By Terry Baume de Rose (love), Laura Mercier Oil-Free Silk Creme foundation (love), NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint (love), NARS Tarvos eye shadow (like it but way more metallic than I was expecting), Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Punked (haven't tried), Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick in Spritzer (like but it's very purple - I ordered sight unseen and thought it would be more pale lavender), Becca Snapdragon blush (love), Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Shipshape (love - goes great with Bobbi Brown Nectar shimmerbrick), MAC Cool and Cute Huggable lip gloss (love), MAC blushes in What I Fancy and Spring Flock (love both), Benefit Lash Primer (love), UD Naked Skin Color Corrector (eh), YSL Touche Eclat Neutralizer (didn't like - too liquidy), MAC Goodness Gracious Plushglass (love), Smith & Cult lip gloss in Flesh Riot (love), Sachajuan Ocean Mist (haven't used it enough to evaluate), Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal (love), Sephora Pantone Universe lipstick in Serenity (haven't tried), Hourglass Strobe powder in Incandescent (eh), R & Co. Aircraft Pomade Mousse (love), Anastasia Dip Down Brow Pomade (soooo pigmented), Artis Oval Brush #6 (love), Bumble & Bumble Surf Foam Spray (haven't tried), Guerlain lip gloss in Nahema Smack (love), Chanel Glossimer in Pinctada (love).

Spring 2016 beauty haul

Some close-up pics.  Sabrina at the Beauty Look Book made these By Terry Baume de Rose in Coral Stellar and Mauve Moon look so good I just had to get both.  I was not disappointed either - these are pricey but seriously the best tinted lip balms I've ever tried (even better than my beloved Fresh Sugar balms.)

By Terry Baume de Rose in Mauve Moon and Coral Stellar

I seem to have a violet and coral thing going this year.  Here's the Bite lipstick in Spritzer and Chanel Shipshape.



Here are the two crazy-colored lipsticks I probably will never actually wear. 

Sephora Pantone Universe Serenity lipstick and Smashbox lipstick in Punked

The lip glosses:


I can't resist mint green for spring, so NARS Tarvos was a must. 

NARS Tarvos and Tom Ford Opale

Strangely I didn't get any new bath and body or nail stuff.  Weird.

So that was my haul!  What did you get this spring and what are you loving/not loving?
