Silk Naturals Haul

 Packages in the mail are always a lovely thing. In this case it’s just a little sweeter, because it’ll be my last somewhat large beauty haul for a while. I’m on the journey to shop my stash, use up what I have and toss what I’m not. Adding these pretty bits to my vanity will make this less-shopping experience a bit more fun.

Here’s what I got:

I needed a new concealer to replace my Bare Minerals under eye concealer and so got the full size of #2 and a sample of #3. Now that I am seeing swatches on my skin tone, I will most likely get the full size of #3 and use it as a concealer for blemishes and evening out my skin.

Another reason why I placed the order was for the Neopolitan HD Cream Blush Palette, which features a beautiful tri of blush, highlighter and bronzer. Versatile and compact, I feel like I can really carry this with me everywhere. I think I might need to get one more so I can keep it in my office makeup bag! The colors are sheer and buildable, with an incredibly smooth formula. The blush looks a bit scary and bright poppy red, but blend it out and it becomes a gorgeous flush of pink on the cheeks. This is an absolute must-have for any all natural beauty starter kit! Silk Naturals 2Here come the extras that just happened to sneak into my online basket. Since I’m still using up some of my non-all natural lipsticks, I still wanted to try a few all natural versions. I got one lip stain, Vamp, which is very pigmented and can build up to a beautiful neutral berry or sheer out by dabbing into a natural just-bitten look. This has staying power. I wiped it, nay, rubbed at the swatch with a tissue and it’s still there. I got one lipstick, Fashionista, which is a lovely muted mauve-pink. Swatch 1Two crème blushes made it into my basket – Chelsea, which is showing up as a shimmery dusky rose and Amuse, a shimmery rosy pink. Both blend beautifully. I was surprised they came in such a narrow stick form, so this will be interesting to play with.

And what order is complete from Silk Naturals without a few samples? They are always generous with their samples. I got a full-sized jar of Bailey, a beautiful suede color, that upon swatching, comes out a bit more taupe with a hint of lavender. I also got a smaller jar of Spin, a very light golden highlight and Afterglow Sheer Blush – such a pretty rosy pink. I’m sold already and must get the full size.
