This is my first Haul post!! YAY!! so I got the famous La Femme Blushes which I must say are justified in their pigmentation quality for their inexpensive pricing. Ladies when I say inexpensive I mean seriously $2.50 for each blush, which are 5.5grams, astounding isn't it. They are makeup artist secret weapons, SERIOUSLY!!. There are 3 different places to buy them from
1.) www.Makeupmania.com, where I purchased mine from, but their customer service was okay, shipping proved to be great hassle
3.) For my UK beauties, www.love-makeup.co.uk, (their collection is missing some colors like russet, but they still have a good variety of colors).
There are two ways of ordering these blushes,
i.) Blush on rouge, if you are interested in these blushes in pot form or
ii.) The palette lab which provides a palette plus 12 blushes in pan form.
Altogether I paid $35 excluding shipping, but since I ordered mine during their 'free shipping trial period', that's all I paid. The downside UK ladies is that I had to pay custom charges to receive the items, that was seriously f***** up. Another perk of selecting the palette lab option is that you get to name your palette, I chose " BLUSH ME SILLY". For reference I'm a Mac NW50 so you can see for yourselves that the colors do come on very well on dark skin, therefore if you lighter they will even be brighter.
Bordeaux, Cinnabar, Brick Red, Golden Sunset, Golden Ruby, Magenta
Orchid Ice, Terracotta, Sienna, Coral, Mulberry, Redwood
Next, I made my second purchase from Sleek, which came out with new Truecolor Lipsticks that are so out of this world. I'm not a big fan of their eyeshadow textures (too chunky for my taste), but their contouring kit and lipsticks and glosses have got me hooked. I purchased mine from Superdrug, but they are also available online at sleekmakeup.com. Orginally they retail for £3.99, but there was promo for 2 for £6 at Superdrug. I got Mystic (Mac Violetta dupe) and Candy Cane (Mac impassioned but slightly more pinky).
Recommendations: All if possible lol, will definitely be purchasing more whenever possible like grape, russet, frambosia whenever they become available.

I wanted to get Amped (possible Mac Candy yum yum dupe) and OMG (if Morange and So chaud had a baby maybe) but they were out of stock.
Have you guys bought any La Femme or Sleek products lately???
