Haul post: From Vegas, Baby (and a swatchathon)!

Hello Lovelies

This post has been a while coming, as my Hubby's been back home from Las Vegas three weeks now.  Look at the major haul he brought back for me!

From my shopping list:  Wet n Wild eyeshadow palettes, YSL & MAC lipsticks, and Christian Dior Diorshow mascara.  
And as a surprise:   Urban Decay holiday collection nail polish & eyeliners and Sally Hansen crackle polishes!  Not a bad effort for a middle-aged male I've got to say.  You can understand why I married him! ;)

Now for a closer look and all the swatches of course.  Take a deep breath because this is gonna be pic heavy...

L - R:
YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks - 26 (Tender Peach), 2 (Sensual Silk)
MAC Cremesheen lipstick (Modesty)
MAC Amplified Creme lipstick (Blankety)

I was very much in a nude lip mood when I made up my list as aside from Tender Peach, all of the other lipsticks are variations of nude.  The Rouge Volupte range of lippies are a new luxe addition to my collection and I'm in love with the packaging.  I couldn't pass up the opportunity to score MAC lippies at half the Australian price so that's why I chose two!

Swatched in daylight L - R:
Tender Peach, Sensual Silk, Modesty, Blankety

Wet n Wild Color Icon palette:
736 Petal Pusher
I chose this palette to feed my purple addiction!
I can see lots of possibilities with it, from sweet to smoky...

381B Sweet As Candy
I think this will be pretty for everyday wear.

380B Walking on Eggshells
I've seen this palette feature in lots of beauty bloggers' posts so it was a 'must have' for me.
Another great palette for everyday.

334 I'm Getting Sunburned
Not for the colour-shy this has the most amazing rich gold shade, complemented with pink and a dark chocolate brown accent shade.
It was the gold that sold me on this one.

Urban Decay Electric 24/7 Travel Size eye pencil set
Well, hello, this was a surprise purchase by my husband and he chose well.  These eyeliner pencils are so creamy and intensely pigmented and the colours are amazing!  They're supposed to be waterproof so I should be able to put that to the test when the weather down here really heats up...

Swatched in daylight L - R:
Perversion, Ransom, Woodstock, Radium, Junkie

Urban Decay Holiday Nail Kit
Another surprise purchase.  My Hubby knows me well!   6 new gorgeous nail colours for the holidays.

Swatches shown in full sun and shade in the same order as in the pack above:
L - R: Barlust, Mars, Wrecked, Ziggy, Gunmetal, Hot Mess

Sally Hansen Crackle overcoats
L - R:  Cherry Smash, Vintage Violet, Fuschia Shock
Not exactly a surprise because Hubby showed me these via Facebook although they weren't on my shopping list.  I've not swatched them here so I'll do a separate post on these.

Christian Dior Diorshow Mascara (Black) - see intro picture.
I love this luxe mascara so I added it to the shopping list.  I've done a previous brief review upon finishing a sample tube here .

I hope you enjoyed this post.  
If you have any of these products I'd love to hear what your impressions are!

Until next time.

Vita :)
