January Sephora Haul

For my Graduation gift, my SIL's gave me a Sephora Gift Card since they know I love makeup and I can be picky as well.  I originally already spent tons when Sephora had their F&F sale, so I didn't know what else to get.  I got a few things that were on sale and what I've been lemming for.

Here's a quick look:

 Tokidoki Palette, Benefit One Prime Day Set, SephoraOPI Metro Chic, Tarte Blush

 All opened up for you to SEE!

I'm on the fence with a few of the products. I swatched some of the eyeshadows from the Tokidoki Palette and I'm not sure I'm loving it. I may end up giving it to my sister or returning it for something else at Sephora.  I used some of the Benefit primers, but haven't used it enough or maybe long enough.  I still have to use Metro Chic, but from what I heard its a nice taupe color, hopefully it suits my skin color well.  As for the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy, I think I ordered the wrong color. It looks too orangey for me, as I thought from swatches it would be more of a coral color.  I'll probably return it for a different color as I've been wanting to try the Tarte blushes.

Let me know if you guys want to see swatches or review on these before I change my mind.  I hope to at least like them to keep.

 Are these Keepers?

The palette is def a keeper. I'm not sure if the prime time thing by benefit was worth it for me. Everything was wayy too small!

I swatched some of the Toki Doki stuff at sephora and remember them being overpriced for the was not pigmented enough. Let us know how you feel!
