November was definitely the month of sales, sales and more sales! Not going to lie, I felt a tad bit overwhelmed at times trying to decide what I should get, what I needed to get, and what I wanted to get (let's be real though, I never really need to purchase anymore makeup). However, I'm extremely proud of myself for limiting my haul to these gems (adult-ing is definitely very serious business).
In this first part of my haul, I'll be showing you the palettes I got and talking about why I got them, as well as swatches of every single shade in each palette (as per requested by my Instagram followers - love you guys!)
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS PRISM EYE SHADOW PALETTE (CAD $55)
This is one of the most unique palettes I've ever owned. Each shade individually is stunning, but together, they create the most spectacular looks - definitely perfect for the holidays! I believe this palette came out in October, but I kept telling myself to purchase it with the VIB Rouge discount. I'm super glad I did cause the discount really helped cut the cost down.
HUDA BEAUTY DESERT DUSK EYESHADOW PALETTE (CAD $85)
I never thought I would own this palette (at least not so soon after it was released) because of how pricey it is. Since I had decided to purchase the Prism palette, I had let this one go in an attempt to save some money. However, my boyfriend then decided to buy me this palette as an early Christmas present! Good thing he was also very smart and bought it on my account so he could apply the discount to it.
TOO FACED BOSS LADY BEAUTY AGENDA (CAD $72)
This was another palette I was going to pass on, even though the shades look amazing and the agenda was literally calling my name. Well, my sister was the one who came through and got this for me for my early Christmas gift (I'm seriously so grateful for her and my boyfriend for always supporting and feeding my makeup addiction)!
Too Faced has really stepped up their game with their holiday sets. Compared to last year's shadows, these are SUPER pigmented. They aren't chalky or choppy when I swatched them with my fingers (again I have not used these shadows on my eyes, my heart can't handle digging into new palettes right away).
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILL MOONCHILD GLOW KIT (CAD $52)
Originally, I was planning on purchasing this with my $25 off Sephora discount at the end of November, but it went on sale for almost 50% off, so I quickly grabbed it in case it sold out. Of course, I have nothing but good things to say about this Glow Kit - it's ABH, all her highlighters are absolutely beautiful.
TOO FACED JUST PEACHY VELVET MATTE EYESHADOW PALETTE (CAD $55)
Again, I was debating on whether to pick up this palette when it first came out, but then had decided to pass on it just cause there were so many other palettes I wanted. However, after seeing this palette in a few people's November favourites, I decided I had to have it, so I used my $25 off discount on it (along with two other products).
I don't even remember the last time I picked up an all matte shadows palette cause I'm not a matte shadow kinda girl - I love my shimmers and glitters! What caught my attention with this palette besides the adorable packaging is the range of warm shades it has. Everyone knows how much I love wearing warm smoky reds on my eyes, but I wanted to branch out and incorporate warmer pinks and purples into my looks as well.
FENTY GALAXY EYESHADOW PALETTE (CAD $69)
This is another eyeshadow palette my sister picked up for me right when she noticed that it had went on sale last week (unfortunately, it is back to its original price). I cannot believe I own this palette now! I still remember going to swatch it with my sister in-stores the weekend it first came out. She literally had to drag me out of Sephora to prevent me from buying it since it is pretty pricey. I came back home this weekend, and my sister literally was like LOOK WHAT I GOT YOU in the car. She's honestly the best sister anyone could ever ask for.
If you're still reading this, a huge congratulations to you because you've made it to the end of the palettes portion of my haul! Be on the lookout for my lips and skincare posts, which will be up shortly!
