Did I Haul It? Wishlist Check-In Haul + Swatches!

Here I am with my update on how I did on my Spring Wishlist! With a few Sephora gift cards and various points to redeem I was able to make a lot of wishes into reality! I also realized I need to stop putting up wishlists because I have a weird thing with list where I like to feel accomplished by checking things ff and I'm finding that having a product wishlist out there really encourages some binge shopping. So this is the last you'll see of Wishlist/Wishlist Haul type of posts because this is not a healthy habit for my wallet or storage space! Nonetheless I picked up a lot of goodies that I'm excited to share with you all!

I absolutely adore the Anastasia Brow Wiz! I ended up picking it up in brunette and it is absolutely perfect. Definitely my new favorite brow pencil, I love how skinny it is and it looks so natural and nice. Going along with brow products I also took advantage of some Birchbox points and picked up the Tweezerman Slant Tweezer in this really fun leopard print. I love the mini ones that I have but it is nice to have a full sized pair to work with.

I probably went to Sephora a hundred times swatching this before I finally broke down and just bought the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Double Ended Eye Pencil in Naked3 - Darkside/Blackheart. My favorite palette now has an eye liner to match it and I'm so pleased. I use Blackheart all the time to line my lower lash line, it's just so beautiful. The Mally Beauty Face Defender has been a complete life saver for my extra oily face and I'm not sure how I've survived without it before.

I checked off most of the hair and skin care items on my wish list including the Michael Todd Fruit Enzyme Exfoliant ScrubOjon Rare Blend Deep Conditioner and L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm.
With the use of redeeming my Shopkick points I was able to get a Sephora gift card and it gave me the ability to pick up my first Nars product! I went for that Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo in Orgasm/Laguna and I'm so excited to do my own comparison review on it with the supposed elf dupe so keep your eyes peeled! And even though I knew I didn't need it I got a little travel sized mini of Tarte Mineral Powder Blush in Park Avenue Princess and added it to my bursting at the seams bronzer collection.
I can't believe I didn't own any Milani products before this but I took advantage of a BOGO sale at CVS and picked up Milani Baked Blush in Red Vino and Berry Amore and then ended up going back and snagging Luminoso too.
I love butter glosses and I went overboard picking up Nyx Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake, Cupcake, Red Velvet, Raspberry Tart, and Devils Food Cake + Praline. In my original wishlist I had wanted Raspberry Tart but after looking up some swatches, it was much too purple for my taste. Instead I added Praline to the mix which is a great "my lips but better" shade for me. I also grabbed the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Ibiza, Prague, Monte Carlo & Stockholm. I originally only wanted Ibiza and Prague but then decided to go for some more easy to wear colors too that aren't limited to season or situation.

All this Nyx stuff came from one big purchase straight from the Nyx website so I stuck to my original wishlist and picked up Nyx Baked Blush in Wanderlust and Spanish Rose. I must say the packaging is cute but really bulky.

What are some things you've hauled recently?
