They see me hauling, they be...

Hola everyone!

I was at the movies yesterday (I watched Iron Man 2, which was great, I love Tony Stark ;D)
And I did some shopping, and postman brought me stuff:
My order from Asos arrived, Illamasqua Pure Pigment and Powder Eyeshadow.

.. Then I did some Make Up Store hauling in Helsinki...
  • Swank lipstick
  • Jupiter High Tech Lighter
  • Cult Eye Dust
  • Synthetic e/s Brush - Small (204)
  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Fashion false lashes
I also got:


I got two AWESOME necklaces from Ebay, I really love the first one with the big bird gage. Love <3

Sugar Crub and Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel wash.


Here's a closer look of the makeup I bought:


Powder Eye Shadow Victim.
This was on sale at Asos, and I finally decided to try some Illamasqua.
I have to say that this was a bit disappointment.
Color is very nice, payoff isn't. You really need to work to get color out of this! Plus it has another negative thing. Once you get it in your lid, you can't get it off. I mean it stains, badly. Very unusual combination to have both, bad color payoff and staining :P

Breathe Pure Pigment.
This was on sale too, so that's why this. This is very generic white loose eyeshadow.
It very shimmery, quite pigmented and.. I hate the package. Sure it's pretty I mean, but I really don't like the way that the jar opens.

Make Up Store:

Cult eyedust.
This doesn't look like much on the swatch pic, but on white base it's awesome.

High Tech Lighter Jupiter.
This is a multipurpose product, that can be used for lips, highlight, base, eyeshadow.. I took silver, 'cos I need weird stuff for weird looks :D

Fashion false lashes. Ah. Love <3 Make Up Store has lot of sweet falsies, some of the super bold, like this one. I can't wait to try these :D


Candy Glitter Liners, Jade and Hot Pink. 
I finally got to try these, I've heard much good about these. 
And I have to say that these may be the best glitter liners I've tried.


Construtivist paint pot. Another baby for my paint pot family. I really don't know why I love paint pots so much, I just got to have them all :D
This one is superpretty metallic brown.


Eye Loose Powder Golden Jewel
This one cought my eye from the sale. It really neat looking IRL, it has several different colored sparkles in it. Quite pigmented.

Here's swatches:

And finally my yesterday's look, with Illamasqua Victim and Sugarpill Poison Plum + Buttercupcake:

That's all this time!


  1. I just love how you make these colors that are so totally different flow together flawlessly! Awesome looks!

  2. The birdcage necklace is adorable!

  3. You are so amazing !!!
    I so love your style, thank you so much for sharing you art with us.

    Kisses from France

  4. Shame the Illamasqua shadow is so rubbish, because that colour is gorgeous with Poison Plum!

  5. wow this make-up looks amazing!! O_O
    so pretty! I so love this :D

    xD I do have the same earrings! though I didn't buy them... I made 'em myself O_o xD can't belive that there are similar earrings like those I made myself

  6. Great hauls..Gorgeous makeup look as always..=)..

  7. omg ur make up always amaze me!! hehe :D

  8. That looks is really beautiful! But it always is so that doesn't really surprise me. The birdcage nacklace is fantastic. Too bad the Illamasqua stuff isn't what you hoped it would be.

  9. As much as I love Illamasqua, their eyeshadows are their weak point, unfortunately, and it takes a lot of work to make them look like in the pan. So I stick to their other products now, their blushes and intense lipglosses are fabulous!

  10. Great haul and stunning make up, as always! :)
    The birdcage necklace is very cute ..

  11. that birdcage necklace is to die for!
    and i love yesterdays look, pretty and colourfull

  12. Generally I don't like pyramid-shaped studs at all but on false eyelashes... now that's something completely different and new!!

    Could you please make a look using those lashes? :)

  13. omg. i so envy you for having a make up store round the corner. do you know if there's an online store? i got my stuff when i was in singapore.

  14. Awe shame you didnt like the Illamasqua..i love the pure pigment pots as they prevent fallout!
    One thing i do appreciate with Illamasqua is, if anything is wrong with a product, let them know. They really do appreciate feedback and improve stuff if it needs to be done.

    I too love Tony Stark btw..hehehe
