Forever 21 and MAC Haul!

I'm Excited.

Then again, when am I not excited? I am on a super excitement energy high, aka, a shopping high. I haven't purchased any "large" quantity of things at once in a while. I am in love with every single thing that I purchased; keep reading to see what I got!

The first product that I purchased was Vibrant Grape from MAC. I couldn't believe that I didn't have this color already! I love fun colors that can be used as a base for a soft smokey look. This will be so much fun for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.

 

The next color from MAC is Girlie. I purchased this to wear along with Vibrant Grape as a highlight. I am going to apply this to the inner half of the lid, Vibrant grape on the rest of the lid, and then smoke it out with Sushi Flower. Look for a more detailed post soon!

This is not anything major, but I purchased another Select Coverup. This is my third tube of this product. I transition in between NC and NW depending on where I am applying it. I decided to pick up another NW20 because I wanted something to mix in for my under eye concealer routine. I found the most amazing brush that works so well with this; I have been working on a dry brushing technique.

If you have seen any of my previous posts, you may know that I adore MAC paint pots. I was so excited to see that they came out with a new long wearing collection of paint pots! I decided on a neutral peach with specks of gold glitter in the shade Let Me Pop. This will be so pretty as an overall wash of color on the lid in the summer.

 

I couldn't leave MAC without purchasing something from the Archie's Girls collection! I did not go to MAC in search of an eyeliner, but I was instantly drawn in to this part of the collection. I have to admit, the packaging had something to do with it... I purchased this mainly because of the packaging, but when I tried it, I was shocked. Wow. This glides on so smoothly! I always strayed away from pencil liners because the tend to tug on my lash line which can lead to pre-mature wrinkles. These eyeliners have changed my mind!

The first item that I got from Forever 21 is one of their nail polishes. I have tried out a few various shades and I love them. For $2.80, how can you go wrong? The shimmer in this color drew me in.

Every single item in that store is strategically placed. I attempted to stay away from the headband section. From the looks of this multi-colored stretch headband, I did not succeed.

I couldn't help it. So. Shiny. I loved the tropical print in this. I have a bad habit of overusing heat on my hair. I have been trying to figure out ways to looks polished and complete without having to curl/straighten it. Hopefully headbands are the answer!

 

Last headband, I promise! I loved the Greek Goddess feel this had. The thin braided gold intertwined with the cream can put a classical twist on any outfit.

I needed a slim belt to cinch in my oversized tops. I went with a lighter brown instead of black for spring. I loved the triangular detailing along with the gold.

I may have a flower addiction. Every time I go into that store I have to pick up at least one of the pins. I love wearing these with my hair in loose waves along with bangles, beachy and wooden, adorning my wrist. Sounds dreamy, right?

 

My white capri's have been found! I purchased this adorable top from target a while ago. I was navy with white dots all over it. I have found that it looks too harsh with jeans, so I needed something white. I love the zipper detailing on these; I can't wait to wear them!

 

I wanted to pick up a pair of dark wash jean shorts. These are just the basic style; I wanted to get them a little small because Forever 21 tends to run smaller on me. These are my spring fitspo; I am determined to get become tones up by summer!

As I stated in the other shorts, I needed new ones. I wanted to purchase something that was in a light wash fabric. I loved the cuffed effect on these; look for new outfit of the day posts!

Like I said before, everything in that store is strategically placed. I was ready to check out and the sale rack was right next to me. Needless to say, I took a few more minutes before I finally wrapped up my purchase! This coral top convinced me to purchase it with its buttons and very agreeable price tag.

The last item that I purchased it this lime spring green top. It is a bit loose intentionally, so I will utilize the belt to cinch it in at the waist.

 

That is everything that I purchased! Make sure to follow and tell me in the comments what your latest shopping purchases have been. Thank you for reading!
