Make up Haul

This is Benefit's Erase Paste. It is a concealer/corrector specially formulated for under eye circles. It has three different shades(Light, Medium,Dark). I bought the medium shade and it suits my skin tone really well. I really like it because of its consistency, and the result it gives in making my under eye circles disappear. Brightening and camouflaging.
You can buy it here:
In this picture, it looks 50% darker but in actual, it appears flesh-colored with a pink undertone. Although I have completely yellow undertones, it blends into my skin really well. Don't be afraid in using correctors with pink undertones if you have yellow undertones. They will cancel out the imperfections on your skin! :) Review and swatch of this product will be in another post.
Bobbi Brown Face Touch up stick. I have to say, I was very disappointed with this product. Not because of the way it works, but because the girl at the Bobbi Brown counter gave me a wrong shade! It is no doubt that this product is darker than my skin tone so if you put it on blemishes, it gives you that patchy look. But, I will probably use this for contouring instead.
This is in No.5 Honey.
Benefit HOOLA Bronzer. This product has been give a lot of hype! I really like the sun-kissed look it gives to my skin and it doesn't overpower the blush, which is essential.
MAC Pearlmatte Face Powder. I got excited when they still had it in the Mac store even though the Vera collection was way over. I was actually looking for Mineralize Skinfinishes and turns out they didn't have them. So, I saw this and swatched it. It is a powder with a little bit of shimmer and may be used as higlight. So why not buy this  insted of the MSF?
This shade is "Flower Fantasy". They also had "Sunday Afternoon" which is a pink sheer blush like powder.
Here's a swatch.
NARS Orgasm Blush. I have nothing to say about this but perfect! It's the best pinkish-peach blush I have ever seen! Nars has a great selection of blushes but not really a wide range for all types of skin tones.
Pinkish-peach with gold shimmer.

MAC Paintpot in Bare Study. Mac's paintpots are really awesome. They make a good eye base for you eye makeup and it doesn't smudge and crease a bit! Well, for me. It cannot be removed by water solely but with makeup remover, it will easily come off. That's a good criterion for a good eyeshadow base which makes your makeup stay all day without smudging.
MAC's lipstick in Innocence, Beware! This came it out in Shop Cook Mac Collection. They had a great color selection for this collection. Some bright pinks, corals, and nudes. This is a nude lipstick but you can barely see the color in the picture. My camera picks up way too dark!
MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in Petting Pink. I have to be honest, I haven't tried out this product yet because I have so many lip moisturizing stuff. But this was really the reason why I went to Mac. (But it turns out I checked out with a lot of stuff! lol) It smells good too. 
They came out with the tendertones in the Shop Cook Mac collection which was available when I went there. So, I could have bought those instead :( but I wanted these badly. It's okay, they will probably be availabe in the CCO's soon.
