Weekend Haul and Swatches - Estee Lauder, MAC, NYX, Essie, And More

I have been very bad this weekend. This haul does not even include what I've purchased online. So be sure to expect some amazing haulage in the next couple weeks when I receive my goodies.
After seeing Stephanie H haul and rave about the Dr. Bonner's Magic Soap, I had to get my hands on it too. I purchased this huge 32 oz bottle for $17.49 at Walgreens. I have used it a couple times already and so far I can say that I think this soap is amazing! I will do a review after I get to try it some more.
While I was browsing the beauty isle at Walgreens, I came across Essie's new collection and picked up two Luxeffects nail polish.

As Gold As It Gets on the left and Shine of the Time on the right. I will post swatches of these two nail polishes on a separate post so stay tuned if you are interested.

I found this set of Burt's Bees products at Big Lots. I was mainly interested in the cuticle cream since my cuticles and hands tend to get pretty dry during the winter. I'm also curious about the lip balm and the rest I am not sure what it is for, lol.

My sister's good friend Marie Lisa mailed her some goodies and to my surprise she included a little something for me too. That was super sweet and thoughtful of her to do so. I was shocked but excited to receive a random gift.

So when I opened my surprise package, I found three NYX nail polishes.


Fame is a small purple glitter polish in a clear base

Aqua Glitter is a mix of small blue and green glitter in a jelly light blue base.


Buzz Worthy is a fine glitter bronze polish in a jelly nude base.

As you can see from the swatch, these polishes are pretty sheer and would work best as top coat. I did 2 coats of each.

Here is how they look with a colored nail polish underneath.

My sister and I sent my mother to La Crosse yesterday and on our way back, we stopped by the CCO in Johnson Creek. It looked pretty nice and had stuff the other CCO we normally go to don't have.

From the CCO, I purchased more Estee Lauder Double Wear cream shadow in Pink Amethyst and Lilac Petals, MAC paint pot Coral Crepe, and MAC blushcreme Ladyblush. To my disappointment, Coral Crepe seemed to be a bit dry. If you look around the edge you can see that the product has slightly separated from the edge of the jar. It is still creamy but I did notice that the product isn't as creamy as it could have been. The swatch for Ladyblush is heavy but when blended out it gives a very natural flush to the cheeks.

I spotted these two items at Claire's. They were BOGO 50% so I got some colorful rhinestones and a glittery holographic top coat, which is great for adding more oomph to any nail polish.

At last, I got this huge bottle of vitamins from Vitamin World for $25.00. That's like 6 months worth of product, which is not bad for the price. I'm trying to take these supplements since I know I don't get all the necessary vitamins from foods that I eat and these vitamins seems to have all the stuff that I want.

So that is it for this post. Stay tune for more.
