Haul: Bobbi Brown, Nars, Trish McEvoy

As I mentioned in a picture on Facebook yesterday, the ladies of Mirror Mirror in Burlington VT, were kind enough to give me a ton of goodies to play with. I'm in love with everything, but there are a few pieces in particular I'm excited to add to my collection.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Raspberry. I'm a sucker for cream blushes and I've never tried the Bobbi Brown ones. I've applied it once and it was a great, raspberry-pink color that could be easily sheered out. I've been eyeing one in Rose as well.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit in Beige. I have a Soap & Glory dupe of this but could never bring myself to splurge on the actual item. The concealer is a bit thicker than what I'm used to but works to cover up my dark circles, and I like the idea of putting the powder on top to seal it in and brighten slightly.
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Extra Light Bisque. When I first saw this, I thought it was way too pink and wouldn't work for me. However, it's supposed to be used before the concealer and the pink works to cancel out the dark undertones.
Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation in Sand, Warm Sand, and Beige. I found that sand works best for my skin tone, but if I combine the latter two colors they also work well together (one is slightly too light and one slightly too dark). Each foundation sample is .5 oz and a normal bottle is 1 oz, so it's like I got 1.5 full bottles!
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square. I have a satin lip pencil in Rikugien that I just adore, so I was so pumped to get this color. The reddish orange reminds me of Mac Lady Danger which sealed the deal for me.
Trish McEvoy Even Skin Foundation in Shade 3. When I saw the packaging, I immediately thought of the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation and once I squirted it out, the formula was almost exactly the same. It's light to medium coverage, and I liked what I saw from one application. Plus it's a perfect match for my skin tone.

Here's a picture of everything they gave me, featuring even more from Nars, Bobbi Brown, Murad, Trish McEvoy & more. Everything is awesome except unfortunately the Trish McEvoy BB Cream is too dark for me, so check out to see how you can win it here.
