Mini Haul: Nail Polish & Make-Up

After Christmas, I decided to use some of my Christmas money for some new nailpolishes. So yes, I've had these for a while, but I haven't shown them yet. I bought these off of - definitely one of my favourite places to buy nail polishes. My inspiration to buy these colours in particular was that I wanted some more "wintery" colours.

"Cherry Cordial" and "Nile Purple" by Nubar - $7 each 
"Vanessa" by Zoya - $6.80; "Crete" by Soulstice Spa - $4.25
The second set of things I have to show you are from Sephora. It might be silly, but one of the things I was super excited about when moving here to Toronto was that there is a Sephora close by. It was one of the first places I went! I wanted to buy a lot more, but seeing as I don't have a job yet, I thought it probably wouldn't be the best idea to spend all my money on make-up immediately.

Urban Decay De-Slick Make-Up Setting Spray - $35; Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush  in Frisky - $33

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream - Free Sample 
My main reason for going into the store was definitely to buy the setting spray. Since I've started using the stuff about a year and a half ago, it's definitely become a must-have for me; a holy-grail product, if you will. I wasn't going to buy anything else but I saw the Tarte blushes and just had to have one after swatching them. I chose Frisky because it was the perfect middle ground between girly pink and a darker plum.

The free sample was nice to get too! I've already used it up, and it ended up being a great moisturizer. Very floral smelling but I guess that's to be expected from the name.
