*Mini Haul!* - Urban Decay and Sonia Kashuk! So Excited!

Hey Beauty Babes!!

This has NOT been a good week for me. I started not feeling well last Saturday. It all started with a bad cold and today, I still feel like blah! My cold/flu/virus/whatever is working its way down and it's now in my stomach. I've been stuck in the house literally ALL week. I had to go to Walmart and Target today to do some shopping, or poor Lucky was going to starve (he has been eating hot dogs all week! Lol!) When I was in Target, I checked out the brushes quickly and picked up a WICKED CUTE Sonia Kashuk set. I also got my Urban Decay package today! This week they had their semi-annual Friends and Family Sale and I finally picked up a couple things that I've been wanting. So, keep reading to see what I got! :)

This brush set is SO me! The colors are bright and fun and from first touch, they are real soft!

I was looking through the brushes that Sonia Kashuk had at Target and immediately these caught my eye! They are adorbs!! I love the colors and these are exactly the brushes that I have been needing. The price was right too! The entire set was only $14.99!! I've never tried Sonia Kashuk brushes before, but I have heard that they're great quality brushes. This set comes with five brushes: an angled crease brush (natural), multipurpose blending brush (natural), powder/blusher brush (natural), definition smudge brush (natural) and a synthetic concealer/foundation brush (synthetic). I haven't tried these out yet, but after I use them for a couple weeks, I will definitely do an updated post as to how they perform!

I ordered from Urban Decay on Wednesday afternoon, in the middle of their Friends and Family Sale. During checkout there was a little message that popped up, saying that shipping would be delayed a few days due to an overwhelming response to the sale. I was not expecting to receive my package til the beginning of next week. But, to my surprise, I got the confirmation email yesterday and the package was in my mailbox this morning! Talk about amazing costumer service and shipping!! My package came from California and I am in Rhode Island, it took just three days to get here! AH-MAY-ZING!

The highly-coveted Urban Decay Naked Palette! I may be a little late, but I FINALLY got one! :)

Now, we all know what the Naked Palette looks like, so I am NOT going to bore you with swatches, reviews, yadda yadda. I am super excited to FINALLY get my hands on this though! I have been wanting it for so long and never got it because I thought $48 (they now upped the price to $50!) was CRAZY for eyeshadow. Since, it was 20% off this past week, I said, 'why not!?', and bought it and I am happy I did! :)

This palette looks awesome! It contains six colors, one liner and a mini primer potion!

I also picked up Urban Decay's The Fun Palette. This was on sale for $16 (originally $36), plus it had an additional 20% because of the sale. The palette ended up coming out to a price that I just couldn't resist. If you are more of a neutral gal, this palette probably isn't for you. Since, I love bright colors, this is PERFECT for me! I can't wait to get my hands on Woodstock (pink), Psychedelic Sister (Purple) and Flipside (tealish-aqua)! It also came with a mini primer potion and a 24/7 pencil in Oil Slick which is black with glitters!

I'm so excited to start playing with everything I got! You know that as soon as I start to feel better, I will be posting looks that I came up with using The Naked Palette and The Fun Palette! Ugh, just wish I felt better so I could play with them today! There is nothing worse that having new product and not feeling well enough to use it! So annoying! :-P

If I paid full price for everything my total WOULD have been $100.99! But, because I'm an awesome sale shopper, I only paid $66.99! I saved a total of $34!

Did you guys pick up anything from the Urban Decay Friends and Family Sale? If you did, let me know whatcha got!!

Stay forever beautiful!
Love and hugs,

  1. I looked at the UD sale, but since the Naked 2 palette wasn't eligible for the discount, I ended up not getting anything (especially since I picked up the stuff I wanted on Haute Look a few weeks ago). You pics look great though. Definitely let us know how the brushes work out. Hope you get to feeling better soon.


    1. Thanks Indie for the get well wishes! I really how I get feeling better soon too! This is lasting too long! I havent worn or played with makeup in a little over a wk! Lol

      I picked up the UD Book of Shadows IV on Hautelook when they had the sale a few wks ago. What did you get? Did you get anything from theBalm this past wk?
