Sephora F&F Sale Haul

Sure, it is the most sad and depressing 'haul' ever, but I did not need much, so here goes necessity buy! Yay me!

Since my MAC Fluidline is kind of icky right now (it's not dry, but it takes a few times going over the line for it to show up dark), I decided not to re-purchase that when I am out, but go with another brand. I read up on a few gel liners and heard that Bobbi Brown one is good, plus I've seen it plenty in tutorials. Additionally - 20% off purchase is as good time as any to get it, right?

My other purchase was YSL Matt & Radiant Pressed Powder (Poudre Compacte Radiance), since I don't like super high coverage powders and my Revlon is being very cakey recently. Reading up on this, I came to a conclusion that it would be a good match for me, as it is pretty translucent, but good at mattifying. Let's see, shall we?

Boxes are always pretty, no? Although I get frustrated when boxes are shiny and show fingerprints. Boo. But hey - it's not like I am keeping these, ya?

So far, the liner looks good. I still have to test it out, but I don't want to do it before I run out of the Fluidline:

See how pretty the compact is? It also comes in a velvety pouch with 'YSL' printed on it. It's nice to keep the compact not scratched in the purse.

The pouch also comes with a compartment that stores a little powder puff. When I was reading reviews, I came across a few that were complaining that the compact did not have a puff inside, so either they did not know about this little pouch, or YSL started including these. They are pretty nifty.

The puff is kind of cheapo, but honestly, I change these often for sanitary reasons, so it's not like I need a pricy one, right? RIGHT?

The compact has a good size mirror and it's pretty light and fancy. I kind of love it right now. I am hoping to use it when I next do my makeup, so we'll see how it goes. Pretty, pretty, pretty >.<

Here's an imprint of the YSL logo on the powder. Wonder how long it will take me to flatten it :3

See, I told you the haul was tiny. My name is Alina and I have an addiction. Pfft.
