Little Haul

Small Haul - Ulta, Target etc

Today on The Lovely Nerds I am bringing you a small haul post. Want to see more? Keep reading -->
The past couple of days I did a little "bargain" makeup shopping. I'm pretty happy with the items I picked up.

First, I picked up a 100 color palette from Elf while I was in Target. However, this pigmentation of this palette was terrible and the colors were chalky. This was returned to Target.

I went by Ulta as I was craving some more NYX products. The first one I grabbed was their cream blush in Orange.

This color is gorgeous. I think I'm in love.

After the blush, I gravitated towards the display of matte lipsticks. I grabbed one in the shade Indie Chic.

I'm having a summer love affair with orange shades this year. This one strongly reminds me of Mac's Watch Me Simmer when on my lips. 

I grabbed a new Milk jumbo pencil. Mine has been gone for a long time, and I wanted a replacement.

Gotta love it.

I added another Stick Blush to my collection. This one is in the shade Magnolia. 

This one is very close to the color of Pink Lotus.. so I'm not sure I truly need both of them.

After I returned the Elf palette to Target, I went looking for a small train case to store the makeup I still have out in. Since I'm moving soon, I have gone ahead and packed up a good bit of my "Collection." I needed a place to keep the stuff I am still using, and this fit the bill pretty well.

With my stuff in it.

I picked this up for my hair. I had been wanting to try an argan oil of some kind in my hair to control the frizz and such, I saw this sitting on the shelf and picked it up.

The last thing I got is a replacement for my long lost Silent Treatment trio from Wet N Wild.

In truth, I buy this for the taupe shade.

Thanks for reading :)
