Sephora Mini Haul - Too Faced & Nails Inc


I thought today I'd share what I ordered from Sephora a few weeks (or almost a couple months) ago.  Oops.  I was so busy getting outside work done, and then trying to get caught up on currently available limited edition polish collections that this just kept getting pushed down the priority list.  One of these months I'll get on a better schedule.

Anyway...let's see what came in my slightly smooshed Sephora box.  Luckily nothing was broken.  I ordered the Too Faced Pardon My French set.  I think I may have ordered this when Sephora had the latest Friends & Family sale going on...sounds right since I try not to order unless there's a deal of some sort.
Bonjour Summer palette (much smaller than I thought it would be), Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner, Lash Injection mascara deluxe sample, Shadow Insurance deluxe sample
top row of swatches: Cocoa Beach, Chocolate Sun, Toasted Coconut
middle row: Plumeria, Firefly, Mermaid
bottom row: Seashell, Sand Dollar, Sunbeam

Just one swipe of the Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black.  Can't wait to try this baby out!
(swatches same as above)
I ended up having to build up pretty much all the shades to get them to show like this in the picture - they actually didn't swatch that well at all.  Overall, the shades do feel drier/stiffer than say...the Pretty Rebel palette.  A primer definitely helps.  I forgot to take notes when I originally swatched this, but I may have recently put hand cream on so my swatches look better than the quick ones I just popped on my hand (dry skin).  Of course, I always wear primer - I might even get out a sticky base for these, especially if I really want the pink to pop.  Some of the shades I need to play around with to figure out how to wear the colors.

I picked out my first 2 Nails Inc polishes.  I always think, if I have to pay for shipping then I might as well order something else to get to that free shipping point and get something for my money.  These came wrapped up in a bubble-wrap bag.
Floral Street Mews and Daisy Lane
The 3 samples I chose:
Murad Clarifying Wipe (yep, another one)
Daisy Eau So Fresh spray
Burberry Brit Rhythm spray

I knew when I purchased this that the sample tube of Shadow Insurance wouldn't be staying with me.  I've kept the open tube that I did a review on, but any others of this brand are being sent over to my sister-in-law since it works better for her.  Based on the swatch of the eyeliner, I'm super impressed with the shade.  I haven't done a wear test on it yet, but when I do I'll do my best to get a review of it up.  I haven't opened the mascara at all yet, but when I do I'll be looking for that "extreme volume" it promises on the tube as well as any length and if it flakes or not.

Recently, Too Faced as released not one, not 2 but 3 new palettes.  I haven't seen them yet, but they are the Rock & Roll, Country and Cat Eyes.  My order of wanting to purchase is Country first, then Cat Eyes followed by Rock & Roll.  Right now on the Too Faced site it shows them as new with nothing indicating they are limited edition.  I'm waiting to see them hopefully in Ulta soon to really decide.

I've already worn one of the polishes but I don't believe I got any pictures before it chipped - that happened a lot during May.  I can't wait to play around with these more to figure out the best undies for each.  I did notice that the flowers need a bit of fishing to get them out.

Have you gotten anything from Too Faced yet?  Anything on your wish list?  Have you used any Nails Inc polishes?  How do you feel about flower glitters in your polish?
