Kiss and Make Up NY Haul

Recently I placed a Kiss and Make Up NY Haul to pick up a staple make up product, NARS' Laguna Bronzer. I hit pan on my old one and had a complete panic that I'd be without it so I raced to my laptop and added it to my cart, along with three other things because, well, I'm only human.
The first thing I grabbed was, of course, NARS' Laguna Bronzer. I absolutely love this bronzer and I use it almost every day so I knew it'd only be a matter of time before I used it up. I highly recommend this bronzer and I think it's worth the whole $36.00US price tag. Next I grabbed another cult product, the NARS Cream Blush in Cactus Flower. This blush has always scared me when I swatched it but it's such a beautiful shade when it's applied lightly. There's a lot more gold in it than I expected but it's so lovely. This blush is $29.00US. Lastly from NARS is their Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla, yet another cult product. I'm still deciding what my favourite way to apply it is but so far I'm really enjoying it. This concealer is $28.00US.

The final product I bought is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Blemish Control. My skin has been quite temperamental lately so I thought I'd grab a primer that's designed to fight blemishes while it does its job. This primer has salicylic acid in it which my break outs generally respond well to so let's see how it goes! This primer is $42.00US.

So far I am so impressed with everything I bought. I've used the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Blemish Control almost every day since I got it and I've pulled out the NARS Cream Blush in Cactus Flower quite a bit, though it's rivalling another cream blush at the moment.

Once again I was so happy with Kiss and Make Up NY. The order took almost three weeks to arrive but that's not their fault. They shipped it out super quickly and I love their $9.99 flat rate international shipping. It must be such a draw card for their store!

What do you think of the products I picked up? Have you tried any of them? 

Always look your best,
