Huge Highend + Sephora haul

This is one of the biggest high end haul I have ever done.
I go back to Malaysia once a year for Summer Holidays ever since I started my further studies and when I go back I do feel very spendy and I just feel like I need everything or stock up things and it does not help with the fact there's Sephora over here. Too add on, I got a departmental store gift card from my mother. Double the trouble. 

Let's dive into the haul. 

Two massive paperbags. One from Sephora and the other, from the department store. 

Flat lay of the makeup products I have purchased. 

Everybody and their mum and their dog knows about this palette. The Urban Decay Naked palettes are so well known in the beauty community. I wasn't too interested in the 1 ans 2 Naked palette, they did not scream "buy me!". When the Naked 3 palette was launched I just knew I have to get it.
The hues of roses and pinks just got me and I like how the darkest shade in the palette is not too dark. I am not on who reaches for dark shades for eyeshadows but the rosy-pink undertones adds a feminine touch which makes it workable for me.

I like how the packaging is rose gold in colour.

Comes with very twelve very lovely shades of rose-pink toned neutrals.
I do not think there is a shade that I will not reach for and dislike in this palette.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Fuchsia

I love when my lip product is long wearing and pigmented and this product from Too Faced seems like a product that I will love so I just needed to get it and try it.
I wanted Melted Peony but sadly it was out of stock at the time I purchased Melted Fuchsia. Only Melted Fuchsia and Melted Ruby was left.
Since I am more of a pink girl, I chose Melted Fuchsia.

The tube is really cute which the matching shade of the tube and gold cap.

I see myself getting more of these Melted Liquid Lipsticks. I will definitely be getting Melted Peony and aiming to get Melted Chihuahua, Melted Fig and some of the Melted Metallics.

Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation in Light Beige

I have always wanted to try Tarte products thanks to Essiebutton. She has been raving about some Tarte products and seeing her loving it just made me have the urge to try the products out.
After thinking which base product should I get from Tarte, I finally settled with this foundation because it is full coverage and it has SPF. I do not own many full coverage foundation I thought it is good to add one more into my collection incase of some skin emergencies or days I want my skin to look flawless.

The bamboo cap is really cute.

I have tried this foundation and so far I have been liking it. I will go into an in depth review on it someday when I do a FOTD with it.

Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush.

The blush their mum, grandma and dog is raving about. I have heard so many good reviews about these blushes and how long lasting these blushes are.
So, I just had to get one of these blushers to try it out.

The shade I chose is "Dollface", a baby pink which a shade that I would make a lot of use out.

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stingray.

Eyeliner is something I find a lot of use out, I switch between liquid, pencil and gel liners depends on my need. Among all types of liner I have owned, I find that searching for a long lasting pencil that doesn't smudge. I have tried many from the drugstore and none of them work on me and my lids aren't even oily to begin with.
Now I am venturing into the high end with hopes finding a long lasting eyeliner that does not smudge.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on eyepencil in Perversion

Besides getting Stila's eyeliner, I got Urban Decay's too to tried out. I couldn't resist getting Urban Decay's when I swatched this eyeliner on my hand because this eyeliner, has to be the blackest black, mother of black eyeliner that I have ever seen. The pigmentation is to die for. It is amazing.
The only thing I do not like is that I have to sharpen the Urban Decay eyeliners. I just do not enjoy sharpening my makeups.

The MAC Paint Pot.

I have heard so much about the paint pots and I have always wanted to try them. After contemplating on whether to get it a paint pot for myself, I finally got one when I went to the cosmetics discount outlet.
This is my only product from the outlet so I threw it into this haul post.
Instead of paying full price, I paid about 30% lesser than the market price which is a good deal for me.

This is the shade I wanted the most from the paint pot range. It is the shade that attracted me the most.

It is a golden peach shade with gold microshimmers that works great alone or as a base colour.

Two MAC Lipsticks that I picked up, Sunny Seoul and Patisserie.

The standard MAC Lipstick packaging. Ever so sleek.

Patisserie is a lustre finish which probably means it is sheerer compared to other finishes in MAC.
It is a pinkish rosy-brown nude with flecks of shimmer. Very subtle and natural on the lips. I find it to be the perfect nude on my skintone. Also, my lips but better shade.

It is one of those shades that I would grab if I can't decide which lip colour to wear or on days I want a natural and simple look.
This shade is slowly creeping to be one of my favourite lipstick shades.

While Patisserie is the elegant and simple, Sunny Seoul screams girly , sweet and cute.

Sunny Seoul is a pinky-peach shade. The creamsheen+pearl formula means it is more pigmented than Patisserie but still on the little sheer side. This makes working with this lipstick very easy. It is a very easy shade for an everyday look to give a punch of colour on the lips and will never look overdone.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation.

I finally got it. This is the foundation I have wanted for ages and now it is finally in my hands.
I have heard so many great reviews about this foundation. I am a lover of glowy finish because I like my skin to look healthy and fresh and what this foundation promises just hit the right notes for me.

My shade is in Gobi.

I have tried this foundation and it does not disappoint at all.
Foundation are a tricky thing to comment about. Not every foundation works on everyone. It depends on the skin's chemistry. My skin is combination and it leans more to dry. This foundation works very well on me.
The finish is not as glowy as I expected it to be, it is more of a soft matte finish but nevertheless it still gives the skin a healthy glow. The coverage is light-medium which is perfect for me. I do not use full coverage foundation often as I find them too heavy on the skin and currently my skin condition does not need any heavy coverage. Light-medium coverage is perfect because it feels really light on the skin and it does not look like I have caking on foundation.
The only down side is the packaging. I paid so much for this foundation and they can't provide me a pump. I do not like pouring out products directly from the bottle. I am clumsy and I tend to pour way too much product.
Sadly, the NARS store I went was out of the pump so no luck for now but I will definitely be purchasing the pump to prevent further mishaps with this foundation.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer.

My shade is in Finland.
This shade matches me perfectly on my NC15-NC20 skin.

NARS Sheer Lipstick in Roman Holiday

It is a pastel pink.

It is a basic shade that works well on my NC15-NC20 skintone.

Urban Decay Naked Flushed

When I visited the Sephora KLCC Branch with the intention of getting the Urban Decay Naked Flushed in Native, it was out of stock. So, I settled for the original palette.
With hope that I am able to get myself the Native version the next time.

I like the Flushed palettes. I find them very convenient for travelling with the blush, highlighter and bronzer in a palette and they are really gorgeous shades.

And then, I visited another Sephora branch. And yes, they have the Naked Flushed in Native in stock.
I just went ahead and grabbed it.

I like the Native palette more because of the pink shade also the bronzer seems to be less orange than the original Naked Flushed and the highlighter is a pale shimmery pink instead of the champagne beige in the original.

The Diorskin Star Foundation.

Following the Diorskin Nude foundation, I just decided to pick up the Diorskin Star to try it out since I really like the Diorskin Nude.

The shade I chose is 011, which leans slightly more yellow than 010.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Kiss Me.

The Fluid Stick is one of the innovation products where it is a fusion between a lipgloss, lipstick and lipbalm. The pigmentation of a lipstick, shine of a gloss and moisturizing like a lipbalm. Seems like a dream come true to many lip product lovers. This makes me so intrigue with this liquid lipstick that I have to try one myself to see the hype all around it and what made it have 381742 dupes of it.
Also let's talk about how gorgeous the packaging is. The silver tones and acrylic tube just screams chic.

Kiss Me is a light pink. One of those my comfort zone shade.

Dior Lip Maximizer

I do not remember what actually triggered me to get this. I guess I just got it because it doubles as a lip plumper and lip treatment.

Diorskin Nude Rose Powder

 Look at the packaging, it looks so luxurious and excuse the fingerprints on the packaging. The lid is such a fingerprint magnet. I guess that is how it is with silver packagings.

The powder is pink as its name states and with microshimmers.

I am not a loose powder kind of girl as they can get really messy and go crazy but loose powder have a softer and nicer finish compared to pressed powder. I have a love-hate relationship with loose powders. But, they will never be my travel companion. This powder is straight off pink which just made me wanna get it. I have also actually heard a lot of good review regarding this powder which contributes to me wanting to get it.I just went ahead and bought it without thinking twice.
Now I am so in love with this powder and I can't just stop staring at its gorgeousness and lament that it cost me my week's meal.

Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Affinite.

The usual black Parisian chic Chanel packaging with a dust pouch.

I am kinda bumped that in Malaysia, the shade 'Inspiration' was not available because that was the shade I wanted most. In the end, I settled with "Inspiration" because it is still in the pinks family.

Affinite is a bright pink.

Slightly different from the usual Chanel black packaging is the Les Beiges line, instead of a chic black style, it's a mode white-black style.

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour SPF 15.

The Les Beiges line focuses on creating a healthy luminous glow with natural sheer lightweight makeup.

The compact comes with a brush. It is a good brush for touch ups but for my makeup routine, I prefer to use my own brush.

My shade is 10.

Chanel Rouge Allure in Imagination

I actually wanted the Chanel Rouge Coco in Rendezvous but it was sold out and I settled for Rouge Allure in Imagination.
Since the shade is not much different and it is still in the same pink family. Just the finish and texture is different. Rouge Coco is known to be more sheer and moisturizing which also translates to not very long lasting. The Rouge Allure are Satin finishes. More pigmentation and drier than the Rouge Coco and also, much more long lasting.

Behold the glorious packaging of Chanel Rouge Allure.
I like the mechanism the packaging, I find it to be unique. It is push to open and push to close type of mechanism.

Imagination is a rosy-pink with gold pearls. The gold pearls are not very visible upon application, the purpose of it is to give a golden satin finish on the lips. Another way to say it, it gives dimension to the lips. So the shade does not seem to lay flat there.
It is a extremely beautiful shade. Very feminine and sophisticated.
This shade does last long on the lips and leaves a nice pink stain through out wear and tear.
