Mini Haul...

Isn't shopping just fabulous! Especially when it's not in your own country. I was in the states a couple of days ago and this is what I picked up. I didn't go too overboard. Surprisingly I didn't buy a single piece of clothing.

All the goodies
Elf Studio Powder Brush - $3

I've been meaning to get my hands on some Elf goodies for a long time. Of course I went straight to Target. However the selection wasn't that great so I ended up with one little measly brush. I'm so glad I bought this because now I don't have to use the same brush for my bronzer and powder in the morning.
Forever 21 Belt - $4.80
I love this vintage inspired belt I picked up from Forever 21. When you add a belt to an outfit (even if it's just a little skinny one), it really pulls everything nicely together.

Urban Outfitters Bag - $9.99 ON SALE!

This bag is adorable! Plus it was only ten dollars, I can't wait to wear it. Urban Outfitters' sale section always has hidden gems, you just got to dig around to find them.
Bobbi Brown Corrector - Light Bisque - $22

I'm so excited because this is my first Bobbi Brown product!  I can't seem to find a place that sells BB in Canada so when I saw the line at Sephora I completely freaked out (on the inside). I have terrible under eye circles. Either from lack of sleep or just good'oll genes, I'm not really sure. All I know is that they are not pretty to look at, and that they make me look tired even if I've slept for hours. I have tried many concealers and most of them make my dark circles look ashy. Plus every creamy concealer that I've tried creases on me. So I'm hoping that this concealer and I will be a match made in heaven. That it will cover my dark circles beautifully without creasing or rubbing off during the day. 
 Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette - $55

This is definitely 'the purchase' of the whole trip, or should I say summer? year? I knew I wanted to purchase a new eyeshadow palette and I had my heart set on the Naked palette. But when I saw this, the Naked palette looked like a dull old rag (okay... it didn't look that bad but it did look less appealing). This new palette has the perfect amount of neutral, bright, and dark shades. And all the shades are brand new to Urban Decay! The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, however since it has a reflective quality, it attracts fingerprints more than I attract mosquitos. I've only played around with a couple of the shades and so far I am thoroughly impressed. This palette is limited edition so I would recommend getting your hands on it immediately!

Since the palette is so darn reflective it was so hard to photograph. Here's a better look at the colours. But if you want amazing quality swatches I would check out Temptalia.

Well that's it for my haul. It was small but I am so happy with all the purchases that I made.
