Chicago Fashion Outlets Haul + E.L.F Haul!

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I decided to go check out the new mall that opened up in Rosemont, Chicago Fashion Outlets Mall. Personally, I really, really like it! It's actually smaller than Woodfield, but it has a lot of stores that Woodfield doesn't!
For example, it's got Gucci, Prada, DKNY, etc!

We didn't get to go to the Gucci or Prada stores--several of these high end fashion shops had a line of at least 30 people outside them, waiting to go in!

We went to quite a few stores!
We went to Lindt, Lolli & Pops, Aeropostale and Guess, as well as few other stores.

Without further ado, here are my spoils!

 Lolli&Pops had a little Japanese candy section, so naturally I got ALL THE THINGS! I got the HK tote to carry all the goodies in~

My boo also bought me chocolates form the Lindt store but I forgot to take a pic >.<
 The Guess store was having a sale so I got this hoodie, and for my bf I got a leather jacket that's also black with similar grey stripes (yay matching!). Naturally a girl needs pants to match with her new hoodie, so I stopped by Aeropostale and got a pair of grey Jeggings! They were 50% off, but I went there because they were having some "world's best fitting jeans" sale for $18, I guess this pair wasn't included but either way they were just $25 anyway, and I don't mind paying that for a pair that fits as perfectly as these do!

On left: This is my shopping outfit for the day~ Top and wedges are from Target, bag from Discovery, and shorts from F21.
On right: This is my love looking boss in Hugo Boss! Sadly they didn't have this jacket in black!
He looked so handsome in it though♥


My E.L.F haul came in on Friday, even though it was expected to arrive this Tuesday!

Not a huge haul, but I got two lip stains, one lip plumper+tint, some blush, eyeliner, two long-lasting gel shadows, and the palette.

The pink lip stain is awesome, great for gradient lips! The eyeliner is awful--the brush is an actual brush with strands, not much precision there at all.

The best part of my haul, though, is the palette and the blush!
The colors are very vibrant and pigmented! I've been wearing it all day and its staying just fine and not creasing. It's also a really pretty design, it includes ALL the colors.

Not the best pic but my camera is my phone's front facing one, it sucks! This is the best I could do to capture how pigmented the shadows and blush (shade is Peachy Keen) are! I'm also wearing the Confetti gel shadow but it mostly shows a bit on that left eye, camera didn't pick it up very well ><
I also added the aegyosal (eyebags) to my look today! I think this look is great for those who wear glasses because it opens up your eyes and it's very bright!

Well that's all for today, hope you enjoyed my post :3
