A Small Haul or a Smaul

I have a small haul for you all!  It rhymes!  :D  I ordered a few things from the Sephora and NARS websites.  I've been obsessed with expanding my NARS blush collection.  I'm drooling over a few more colors and when I have something in mind then I usually have to have it.
L to R: Illamasqua Milf (I'm not a fan of this name but it's a pretty color) vintage mint green
OPI for Sephora: Read my Palm - light jade green
OPI for Sephora: Havana Dreams - pale sky blue

The three of these are cremes and I can't wait to try them!  I especially love Illamasqua's nail varnish formula. I typically only need 2 coats and they're perfectly opaque.
Then from NARS I ordered these two cream blushes.
The left is Penny Lane and the right is Enchanted from the new Summer 2010 collection.
These are the first two cream blushes I've tried from NARS and I love love love them.
Penny Lane is a gorgeous nude pink and Enchanted is a soft peachy apricot with gold sparkles.  It's absolutely gorgeous!
You can click on the photo to enlarge.  I hope you can see the gold sparkles.  They aren't huge and chunky but it really creates the most gorgeous sheen on the skin.

That's it for my small haul!  I hope you all are having a lovely week so far!

  2. I can play the piano without looking at sheet music.  :)  This might not be a special talent but my mother in law is always impressed because she cannot play without sheet music in front of her.
  3. For highschool I went to boarding school in Switzerland for four years.
  4. I almost died when I was 7.  I choked on a Gobstopper and since no one knew the Heimlich maneuver my brother hit me on the back until I swallowed it.  Now I can't swallow pills bigger than Advil.
  5. After I eat I become instantly cold to the point where I'm shivering and covered in goosebumps.  I always say it's because all my blood is rushing to my stomach to aid in digestion.  I have no idea if that's true.
  6. My 1st trip to the Philippines was when I was 2.  My family and I went back every year 'til I was 25.
  7. I have a horrible memory and I can't even remember what I had for dinner two nights ago.  :)
