New York Makeup Haul | New Additions + First Impressions

by - 12:34 PM

Hi, Dolls and Gents, 

It’s been a while, so today I am going to be sharing my New York makeup haul. Everything that I purchase in New York. I was super excited to find almost all my shades in foundations and concealer and though I could have gone crazy and buy every one. I want to justify why I need them if they were more wants than needs. 

I will also give my current thoughts on some of these products so you can get an idea of where I stand for now until I do a full review. Let's get started. 


Morphe 9C Eyeshadow Palette

There many different choices at Ulta for the Morphe palette but I decided to go for this one because the tones are warm and purple. It was something that I didn't have in my collection. The eyeshadow looks beautiful and blended out beautifully. It is good quality shadows at an affordable price. 

Colourpop x KathleenLights Dream St. Palette

My first colourpop eyeshadow palette and it is by one of my favourites beauty influencers. The colour selection of this palette is beautiful. The colours compliment each other nicely and the quality is out of this world. The pigmentation and bendability are amazing as well.  

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer in Deep

So, I purchased this because it was so ver hype and everyone was saying that this is the best concealer that they had ever used. Now, that I own it and have tried it out for a bit. What I can really say is that I don't know how I feel about this concealer. I don't know if I love it or hate it. 

Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer in C13 

I really like this concealer. Many say that is similar to Shape Tape. Though, I have not tested it out all I can say is I love the consistency of this concealer and how it blends out. It is a seamless blend and it doesn't dry quickly as well. 

Morphe Brushes in M441(2), M514, M510

These brushes are amazing. This is my first time using Morphe brushes and they are quite soft and not scratchy. I was excited to see the brushes because you can never have too many and I was in need of more blending brushes for my small eyes. 

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Limbo, Mama, and LAX

Okay, so this is my first time trying out this liquid lipstick and I have to say that they are kind of drying on the lips. I have used ABH, Dose of Colors, NYX and Urban Decay. This has to be the most drying formula I have felt on my lips. However, the colours are beautiful, it is pigmented with one swipe. I have worn it a few times and I just prep my lips well.


Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless in 368 Deep Golden

Okay, so I love this foundation. It keeps me matte and I love the finish of this foundation. This foundation is like a new discovery, though I tried it out when it was first released, now I have may almost perfect shade. 360 Mocha was actually too light for me because of the shade of totally off from the Dewy and Smooth collection. I went to 368 and that is the perfect shade, but the undertone is not good. I mix with my Fenty which is too red and make the perfect shade. If I can get the perfect undertone of at least close to mine, I will be happy.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Concealer in Hazelnut

Finally, they extended the shade range for this concealer. I have always heard good things about this concealer but never got a chance to try it out because the shade range was trash. I got the shade Hazelnut which was on clearance at Target, so I bought it for $6.00 USD. I love the formula and how it blends out. It feels hydrating on the skin as well.


Okay, so I hope you enjoyed my New York makeup haul. I really had a lot of fun in New York with my friends. If you would like me to do a review on any of these products, let me know and I will get started on that.  Don't forget to comment and share. Also, follow my blog it is free!
