Mini makeup haul & review

Hi beauties:

Over the past week, I did a little makeup haul and wanted to share my new products with you. I've promised myself that I will no longer go on random makeup shopping sprees because I already have too much makeup stuff but I'm allowed to break my own promises right??!?

Anyway, here are my products!

All Products

Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Creme Corrector Palette

Our Hi-Def Glamour Cremes are formulated to yield flawless High Definition results whether or not you're in front of a camera. With rich color and coverage yet satin smooth creamy consistency, our Hi-Def Glamour Cremes are a pleasure to work with. We have provided you with a very attractive package to pull out of your kit on the set to correct for blemishes or for discoloration neutralization purposes.

My view:- These cremes are super rich and gives great coverage. My face is multi-toned and these cremes neutralize my blemishes, discoloration and acne scars. The color correctors prepare my face for my foundation.

This 5-color palette comes with a Soft Orange Neutral which neutralizes blue in the skin (really pale persons), Yellow Hi-Lite which cancels deep red and purple (bruises), Muted Green which removes redness (pimples, sunburn), Pink Hi-Lite wich counteracts grey or brown (under eye circles) and an Extra Hi-Lite which can be used as a light highlighter.

Price: $8

Graftobian HD Glamour Creme Super Palette- Warm

This palette comes with 18 richly, pigmented, smooth, creme foundations and gives immaculate coverage.

Palettes are a great way to conveniently mobilize colors whether lipcolors, eyeshadows, blushes, face powders or foundations.

This palette also comes in Cool tones, Neutral tones and Warm tones (picture shown above) and are great for flash photography.

Note- Because these are creme colors, I would recommend storing this palette in a cool, dry area. Storing them in a warm or hot place will cause the cremes to melt.

Price: US$69.99

Milani Baked Eyeshadow- Blue My Mind

This is an absolutely GORGEOUS metallic, rich, royal blue color and it's super pigmented

Price: $7.49 - I think I paid around CI$8 (US$10)
Where: This eyeshadow can be purchased on Milani's website but I purchased it at one of the local supermarkets in the beauty aisle.


When I saw this blush, I insteantly fell in love with it. I automaticaly thought of all the brides I could use this blush on to give them a subtle dewy look.

The baked blush is a luxurious powder blush that features a mélange infusion of colors baked on Italian terracotta tiles. Easy to use, sensorial in texture, the nuances of color become extraordinarily luminous. Silky smooth application leaves your face looking healthy and radiant all day.

This baked blush givse a sun-kissed look and is super smooth and pigmented.

Price: $7.99- I think I paid CI$9 (US$11.25)
Where: Milani website. I bought this blush at a local supermarket

Stila Smudge Pot- Black

The verdict is in, and smudge pots take the prize for sexy eyes. The innovative and spunky alternative to traditional powder and liquid formulas, this clever little gel has an inky intensity that leaves powder shadows in the dust. The glass jar and airtight lid keeps the gel soft and pliable.

Price: US$20- I paid CI$24 (US$30)
Where: Stila Cosmetics can be purchased from Sephora or the Stila Cosmetics website . I purchased mine from a local store that sells Stila Cosmetics.

Stila Kajal Liner- Sapphire

These richly hued pencils are formulated to mimic the ultra-soft texture of the Indian eye darkener of the same name. The luscious formula glides on perfectly, without dragging across the fragile skin of the eye area. Delivers bold, clear, true color that easily blends and beautifies.

Price: US$18 (CI$22)
Where: Sephora or Stila Cosmetics website

I love the graftobian foundations, they're great to work with, easy to blend and nice coverage. Good choice!

So true! I tried mine (obviously) and found that a little went a long way. The viscosity of the cremes were amazing and so was the coverage.
