Huge ShopMissA Haul

I Ordered 60 Items On ShopMissA

And most of them are in this haul. I didn't include a couple of things (mostly socks) since they weren't makeup. Also, this is my first post using a new lighting setup as well as a new, more summery background, so let me know what you think!

Here is the first layer of wrapping. Most of my orders have come in bright orange plastic packages that say MissA on them but this one came in a box, which I'm assuming is because it was a pretty large order. So there was a sheet of bubble wrap and some pretty tissue paper...

...some more bubble wrap...

...a thin foam wrapping type thing...

...and then my goodies! Many of the more breakable things like compacts were individually wrapped as well, which is common when you order from ShopMissA. They tend to package your items very carefully and I have never had anything arrive totally broken. I've had stuff like lipstick that wasn't totally attached to the base of the tube, but that seems more like a problem that happened during the manufacturing of the product than during packaging or shipping.

I love the Kara eyelashes that ShopMissA sells, so I got five pairs! The #2 style is my favorite.

These two pairs are a bit more natural than the other three, but they're still not all that natural since they're pretty long. That's okay though because I like dramatic lashes.

This is the only nail related stuff I got. I was running out of nail glue, so I restocked on that, and the LA Colors duos were brand new and looked fun. I got the colors PB & J and Peace & Quiet.

Because I love the LA Colors Jumbo Eye Pencils so much, I got another one in Pretty In Pink. Sadly, the tip totally broke off when I was swatching it, so I had to sharpen it quite a bit. The color is really pretty, though, and I can see it working as both a base and a standalone eyeshadow.

I got this Kleancolor lip liner in Natural, which ended up being much more brown than I expected, so I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of it. I think it would look better on darker skin than mine.

I got four Kleancolor Master Strokes eyeshadow sticks in the shades (from left to right) Citron, Fireglow, Fuchsia Kiss, and Cobalt Glaze. Citron is broken at the base but I'm sure I can use a candle to melt it a bit and repair it if I really find it inconvenient to have it broken. It's still usable right now, I just have to keep it upright. Fuchsia Kiss isn't as pigmented as the others but it is pretty buildable so it's not that big of a deal. And for a dollar, if you're willing to work with them, it's hard to go wrong.

This LA Colors Contour Stick in Highlighter looked interesting on the website, and let me tell you, it is gorgeous in person. It's super glowy and the amount of shimmer is just perfect. It also seems like it will be a good shade for my skin tone and color.

The e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal has been on my radar for months now but it's always sold out on ShopMissA and when I made my e.l.f. order it was sold out there too, so I haven't been able to get it up until now. And I think it was worth the wait! I have the shade Pink Lemonade and while it is pretty, it's quite pink so it can easily start to look like an obvious stripe of pink on my cheekbones if I use too much and don't blend it out enough. Lilac Petal seems like it will suit me better.

I absolutely don't need more mascara, but this one has avocado seed oil (at least that's what the package says. The ingredients don't say it, but they do say words I don't know so one of those things might be a different name for avocado seed oil) and that seemed cool to me. I'm really easily drawn in by things that seem unique or even just plain gimmicky so this caught my attention.

I can always use setting powder, and this one seems to have a pretty decent amount for a dollar, so of course I had to get it. It's usually sold out but it happened to not be when I was making my order so I managed to snag one. When I swatched it, it did seem to leave a bit of a white cast on my hand, but I'm pretty pale anyways so that probably won't end up being an issue.

These are the Amuse Rose blushes in the shades 01 Classic Rose (top) and 04 Lovely Rose (bottom). They aren't too pigmented but they're still pigmented enough to show up and they seem quite blendable. I love both shades and can't wait to try them out.

I don't have any orangey blushes, and I have very few cream ones, so I figured I  would get an orangey cream blush. It seems pretty blendable and not too pigmented while still having enough pigment to show up. It smells nice too.

All of the matte Tanned Rawr bronzers are nearly always sold out, but I was lucky enough to get one this time in the shade Bali Matte. It seems like the perfect shade for me, right in between warm and cool and not too light or dark and just pigmented enough.

These Princessa pigments sold out pretty fast but I managed to get my hands on one in the shade 18, which is the shade I really wanted. It's super shimmery and seems like it will have tons of fallout but it's so pretty that I think that it will be worth it.

I got three Amuse Single Shock Shadows in the shades Navy Girl (blue), Lava Luv (purple), and Sweet As Peach (orange). I swatched Sweet As Peach on my hand and it honestly didn't seem that great. It was really powdery and kind of bunched up oddly.

This Amuse quad has colors that match the Kleancolor shadow sticks I got so I'm planning on doing a look with them.  These shadows seem to be okay quality but I still have yet to test them on my eyes. This quad is in color 2.

I am super excited about this new LA Colors 4-Color Matte Eyeshadow quad in Mattenificent because when I swatched the shadows I not only loved them as colors but I also thought that they seemed to be great quality. I think that you could create an entire look using this quad as well.

This Amuse Perfect Duo palette seems to be of decent quality. I'm noticing a pattern of me not being particularly impressed by the Amuse brand shadows, but I still have to try them on my actual eyes before I judge them fully. Some products swatch terribly but wear great.

This LA Colors 5-Color Metallic Mauve Eyeshadows palette in Wine & Roses ended up being a bit smaller than I expected, but that's okay because when I swatched the shadows they were rather pigmented and super shimmery, which made them look gorgeous. They really do seem very metallic.

The Santee Glam Eyes duo in color 8 swatches beautifully and I have high hopes for it. The shimmery shade is particularly pretty.

It's not a ShopMissA haul without some lip balm! I was hoping for this to be a dupe for the Nivea lip butters, so we shall see. So far the texture seems somewhat similar, but not the same.

This Juicy Lips balm ended up being more pigmented than I was expecting, which is nice because I like the color and I don't have a lot like it in my collection. I hope it end up being moisturizing too.

Moving on to the excessive amount of lipsticks that I purchased, I got the new LA Colors Liquid Matte Lipsticks in the shades (left to right) Canoodle, Kissable, and Angel Kisses. They do seem to be a "true" liquid lipstick - they dry down to a totally matte finish, but I have yet to see if it is a transfer-proof matte finish. I'm predicting that these will start to sell out pretty fast once people discover that they're true liquid lipsticks for just a dollar - last time ShopMissA started stocking a similar product, that item started selling out super quickly, and I believe it is currently sold out as I write this.

This lip duo in Clarity seemed like a shade I would wear, and it's technically two products for a dollar, so I thought, hey, win win! And I got it. So basically I was sucked in by the fact that it was cheap and I like pretty colors. I am a very simple person sometimes, and that is okay.

I got three Santee Satin Moisture lipsticks in the shades (left to right) 2, 5, and 8. I wanted them because they had the word satin in the na,e and that made me think of the satin finish lipsticks by MAC which I absolutely adore and I though maybe these would be similar in some way.

Because cute packaging is kind of my thing, I got three Heart Case Matte Lipsticks in (left to right) 5, 6, and 9. I love the packaging and even though one of the lipsticks had detached from the base I was able to get it to go back in and get it to stay in and it's useable now.

I couldn't resist the packaging on these Santee Color Sensation lipsticks, so I got three of them, in the shades (left to right) 8, 9, and 10. It may have actually been one of these ones that had been broken and not the heart case ones, I don't remember, but either way I solved the issue. I don't like the writing on the front of the packaging, but I'm sure there's some way to remove it.

Last but not least, the lipsticks I'm most excited for - the Kleancolor Madly Matte lipsticks! They come in some fun colors so I decided to get those as well as a couple of more wearable shades. From left to right, the shades are Orchard, Brick Rose, Arctic, Catalina, and Liberty. All of them except for Arctic swatch pretty well. Arctic is a bit patchy, but most white lipsticks are, and it seems good enough quality to mix with other lipsticks to lighten them.
