Time to make a summary out of all the makeup added to my collection this month. I really enjoy making reviews so you could expect to see many of these in upcoming review posts, but if something is of particular interest then let me know, because that will definitely bump the product up on my endless reviews-I-have-to-make-list!
Anyway, here are the goodies collected in march!
This is actually more like February, because this was a lovely birthday gift from a friend that I got as a surprise in the mail. I have been drooling over the Zoeva Opulence face palette for a long long time, and I am a very happy camper to finally tick this off my wish list. The Douglas Collection Love Powder highlighting powder was also a part of the gift. Isn’t it just adorable?
These two Colourpop gems was not bought in March either. I actually purchased these in the beginning of December, but the parcel got lost in the mail. When my first order finally came back to Colourpop I got a refund and could place the order over again. 1st March the Colourpop Dream ST. Palette and the Colourpop Double Entendre Palette was finally both mine! I have been using both of these a lot during the month.
The Tonymoly Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream was actually something I picked up after trying a sample pack I got from one of my K-Beauty skincare purhcases. Clever thing to add samples! Korean BB Creams are very hit or miss for me, some look great but I thing some of the worst BB Creams or foundations I’ve ever tried have also been K-Beauty. So I really like to try samples of them before picking them up. This one gave me a very nice first impression so I had to get a full size.
The Morphe Brushes are from my MorpheMe subscription that I get monthly. Always nice to add fresh brushes to the collection!
I am running low on setting spray. Very low! So I got this Mario Badescu Facial Spray. I know it is not supposed to “set” the makeup, but I enjoy a spray that just takes away powderiness and just melts everything together. I also picked up my very first Dose Of Colors Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Berry Me 2”. I figured it was about time I tried something from that brand! The single pan eyeshadow from Makeupgeek is “Ritzy”.
The Balm Sexy Mama Translucent Powder and the Maybelline Master Dram Kohl Pencil “Ultra Black” are both repurchases since they are much loved products I recently ran out of. Batiste Dry Shampoo is also something I use up frequently so I needed that as well. All the goodies from Wet N’ Wild are new to me. Actually, I’ve never tried anything from Wet N’ Wild before so I picked up some products that I’ve heard all good things about! Always fun to dive into a new and promising drugstore brand.
I did a little haul of Makeup Revolution, mainly because I needed to try that Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer that so many people seem to love, and the Fast Base Stick Foundation also caught my interest. It is sadly a bit too dark so it has to hang around in my drawer for a while before I get to test it out. I do already know and use those Liquid Higlighters a lot and picked up three new shades: Liquid Rose Gold. Liquid Luminous Luna, and Liquid Dragon’s Blood. The only reason why I picked up the last one was the name….I am easy like that.
The Redken Frizz Dismiss Smooth Force Lotion Spray is something I pick up on a regular basis. This is Holy Grail and I use it every time I have a shower. It makes my hair look very shiny and healthy without weighing it down. This is a must have for me, and since I am afraid of running out I picked up two.
I also got my hands on the Anastasia Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette. Yes, Just another neutral palette, nothing we haven’t seen before. Most of these shades I could probably dupe. Actually, three of them are already in my Modern Renaissance palette. But, I do enjoy my neutrals, and even though I love love love creating colorful looks, I usually reach for shades like this when I do my makeup for work. So i figured I would get a lot of use out of it. I was right, I got this just before Easter and I have been using it every day through Easter to get to know this palette. And I can already tell I am very happy I picked this up because I have really been having some good makeup day lately.
I also did received my monthly liquid lipstick subscription featuring these guys. I already have a review of them if you would like to read about how these performed.
I am also slightly annoyed, because this is not everything I picked up, but it is everything I can share with you because I didn’t receive the rest yet. I have a lot of goodies on the way. Just to mention a few you can expect to see on my blog in the future I picked up Juvia,s Place Masquerade, Christen Dominique Latte Palette, Colourpop Luxe lipsticks and most likely some stuff I already forgot about because shipping takes 3-4 weeks and who remembers that long?
I did also buy the Amrezy highlighter but I suddenly got a refund from BeautyBay because something happened and the package was returned. And now they are sold out. Bad thing happen to good people, just saying it! I really hope it is restocked because I was so excited to get my hands on it. Imagine my disappointment when I just got my money back instead of that pretty new highlighter.
Anyway, that sums up my hauls this month. Did you pick up anything for yourself?
