    I am graduating from college soon and I live in an area where there is no one that sells all of the amazing brands that are talked about on this website. So I decided to put a large chunk of my tax return to buying myself some nicer makeup and skin care products.

    I just ordered:
    Shu Uemura: eyelash curler
    Coastal Scent: 6 Contour Blush palette
    MAC: Brush cleaner, cleanse off oil, Brushes 150,168,188,224,116,182, 214,109,187,239,and 217
    NARS:Hydrating Freshening Lotion
    Sephora: Night cream, day moisturizer, give me some lip vol. II kit
    Smashbox: Try-it kit (wanted to try the face primer and this kit was cheaper)
    Urban Decay: Naked palette, urban defense, eye primer potion
    Laura Mercier: Translucent setting powder, velour puff
    Bobbi Brown: Concealer kit, rich lip color-bare pink
    Lancome: Bi-facil
    Fresh: Face duo
    Kate Somerville: ExfoliKate
    e.l.f.:makeup brush holder

    I know this is a lot of stuff but I have never done this before and likely will never make such a large order again. I am really excited to get it all, I’ve been researching for weeks!!! I split my Sephora order into smaller orders to get the most amount of freebies (since they are one per order), so I have a few things left to order. While I’m at it, does anyone have any recommendations for things that I may LOVE that I missed??
