Naimie's Beauty Haul!

Hey everyone, I know I haven't blogged in what seems like an eternity! I just want to say thank you to those of you who have patiently waited for a blog post. Just to let you know, you can always find me on my YouTube channel, where I make beauty videos twice a week. 

March was an extremely busy month for me! I was mainly spending time with my friends and family for my 20th birthday, they all spoiled me by giving me various makeup related goodies (they know me too well) and that leads us to Naimie's! My parents knew that I had always wanted to experience Naimie's Beauty Center in person, so we made the trip out to Hollywood and let me tell you, IT WAS AMAZING! 


Naimie's has everything you could possibly want when it comes to luxury makeup, haircare, and even skincare. Every makeup lover should experience it, they have endless makeup counters of brands such as Makeup Forever, Kryolan, Smashbox, and Limecrime. I almost didn't know where to begin, but I ended up with a nice little haul: 



Kryolan High Gloss in Blue Lagoon- I'm obsessed with blue, it's my favorite color and I don't have too many lips products to show for it, so I thought that this little number from Kryolan would be a fun purchase. It's a high shine, pigmented gloss that goes on smoothly with an opaque finish. This is my first buy from Kryolan, and I love it! 

Red Cherry #747 Lashes- I really don't need any more falsies, but there was something about these that I just couldn't pass up. They are dramatic and wispy, my perfect combination.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lipstick in Watermelon- I've never tried Elizabeth Arden lipsticks before, what sold me on this one was the creamy texture and satiny finish. I also really love the mid-tone pink which simple, yet perfect for everyday looks.

Stila Single Shadow in Kitten- I LOVE THIS SHADE! I am a huge fan of shimmery champagne shadows, and kitten has always been on my top 5 list. I've used it palettes before, now I can finally have it on it's own. I have a review coming up on this shadow soon!

Makeup Forever Aqua Black Cream- This is the blackest gel liner I have ever seen. It's also very matte, which is exactly what I want for my everyday cat liner. I've been using this non-stop. It's waterproof, it lasts all day, and I love it. 

Smashbox Shadow Trio in Covershoot- I love the quality of Smashbox shadows! They're velvety smooth without giving me fall-out. This trio really caught my eye, I love the neutrals, two are mattes and one is a shimmer. 

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Berry Pop- This blush was too adorable to pass up! I couldn't resist the beautiful berry shade and the cute flower pattern. The texture is somewhat bouncy, and the pigmentation is fantastic. 

Butter London Color Wink Mascara in Chav- Once again, I couldn't resist the minty blue shade. I have never seen a mascara with this color, so I was sold on it's uniqueness alone. The pigmentation is quite good and it doesn't flake at all. 



So far I've really been enjoying all of these products! I always get a thrill from adding new, exciting products to my makeup collection.  I'm very happy that I experienced Naimie's in person, it's such a cool place to go, especially if you're a makeup lover! 


Thank you again to my parents for taking me out to enjoy my special day, and to those of you who wished me a happy birthday! I also made a video haul, where I show a few little extra things, if you would like to watch it below!

  5. Lovely haul! Well deserved for your birthday :) Such a fun outfit you're wearing too and enviably slim figure, no stomach fact detected, haha. That Butter London mascara is so intriguing and definitely super unique! I don't think I've seen a mascara that colour, and I wouldn't have expected that brand to come out with one. The Clinique blushes seem to be all the rage lately. The bouncyish texture is really interesting to me - I'm looking forward to potentially swatching it in person and seeing for myself what it's like :)

  10. You have nice skin, but I think your eyebrows would look better if they were a little softer and not too filled it.
