Some haulage...

I've had a few mini-hauls over the last month or so and have neglected to blog about them. To remedy the situation, I present you MEGA HAUL POST.
 Color Club All About Color Set. Colors left to right: Cadillac Red, Sugar Sheer, In Bloom, Rev'd Up, Overboard, Trippie Hippie, Catwalk Queen
 This is a set from Ross called All About Color. I had a hell of a time trying to find the names of the polishes, because they weren't labeled on the bottle (which I had expected) and they weren't written on the cardboard insert of the packaging (which I didn't expect). I love love love the price of these babies, so it was worth it.

Color Club Alter Ego Reveal Your Mystery Set, left to right: Get a Clue, Revealed, Incognito, Secret Rendezvous, Sheer Disguise, Give Me a Hint, Milky White Base Coat 
 I was so excited when I found this one. It was the last one!!! The formula seemed a little think on some of these, but for 7.99 for 8 bottles of polish, I won't complain. Nice, office-appropriate colors, too.

China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat, China Glaze Blue Iguana, Finger Paints Go Van Gogh, Wet n Wild FastDry Teal of Fortune
Blue Iguana is SO pretty, but stains like crazy. I took it off with normal acetone remover AND straight acetone four days ago and there are STILL blue spots on my nails. Also, CG Blue Iguana and WNW Teal of  Fortune are near dupes, but TOF has a blue/green flash while BI has a purpley/pink flash. Both are very pretty. 

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils in Bronze, Milk, Pure Gold
I bought these at Ulta buy 2 get 1 free. I'd heard rave reviews about the Milk pencil, but I'm not particularly fond of these. Milk is ok as a a brow/inner corner highlighter, but the other two suck as shadows. You have to press hard to get the color to transfer and even then, it doesn't last long. Disappointed :(

ELF Brush: Defining Eye Brush, 1804 Total Face Brush, 1821 Concealer Brush
  I bought the defining eye brush to clean up my nails with pure acetone. The bristles were too fluffy for this, but the brush was only a dollar, so no big deal. I haven't tried the other two brushes as of now.

Revlon CRAZYshine nail buffer
I had heard good things about this buffer, and it was only 3.49 at Ulta. It did make my nails extremely shiny in only two steps, as opposed to the four normal four-sided buffers require. The shape was also unique and allowed me to get right up to the cuticle without accidentally buffing the skin around my nail.
