the haul | replacements

For the past couple of months, I've put myself on a replacement-only no-buy, and I've been successful thus far. I've used up a few things, though, so this past weekend I finally made the trek to Sephora.

I've heard lots of good things about the Kat Von D Tattoo liner, and so far it's lived up to the hype. Unlike most liquid liners I've used before, it has a brush tip rather than one of felt. Despite my reservations about potential messiness, it's actually easier and more precise to apply than, say, everyone's favorite Stila liner. I'm happily impressed.

The other thing I bought was a travel-sized Hourglass Veil mineral primer. It's undoubtedly the priciest primer I've ever used, but it's also by far the best. I've used it every day this week barring Sunday and have been floored by how well this pairs with my favorite NARS Pure Radiant tinted moisturizer. It looks like another face of the day is in order.

Have you bought anything recently? If so, what?
