2013 Chicago Makeup Show Haul

Hi Bellas,

Time for another haul.  As you know, I attended the Chicago Makeup Show earlier this month and I had a chance to do some shopping.  This is much more of a controlled haul since I had time to reevaluate what I actually needed after I shopped it up at the New York Makeup Show.  I was finally able to pick up a few items that I've been needing and wanting for a while.  Check it out!
