Merry Christmas to Me

Even though Christmas morning is tomorrow, I still went out and decided to treat myself to some new makeup.  For half of the things here, I actually had a reason to buy; I forgot not only my Beauty Blender back in London, but also my foundation!  The other things, however, I bought them a bit impulsively because they were on clearance.
I'm normally one to do lots of research on makeup before buying, so despite buying some of these things rather impulsively, I'm really happy with my purchases.  The Real Technique sponges I've used before, so obviously I think they work well since I'm repurchasing.  When it comes to foundation, I am by no means an expert.  This is only the third foundation I've bought in my life, but I think the color match is almost perfect.  The foundation, L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation in N2, is very layer able meaning you can have as much or as little coverage as you'd like.  It does come with its own cushion to apply the foundation, but I prefer to use my beauty blender.  Also, I'm a sucker for rose gold, so the packaging is a definite plus.  These brushes from Sonia Kashuk are soft and seem to apply makeup evenly, but I haven't used all the brushes yet so I can't say for sure (a standout already, though, is the concealer brush - definitely recommend).  Finally I purchased this makeup palette from Pixi, and let me just say that I am in love.  The eyeshadows are very pigmented and are beautiful, neutral colors.  The bronzer is almost too pigmented, so a little goes a long way.  All in all, it's a definite thumbs up.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas Eve tonight.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!
