Time to collect all the goodies I captured in May! I love seing what other people pick up from the stores so I am hoping some of you will feel the same and enjoy this post. Let me know in the comments if you picked up something nice layely!
First a little Smashbox! I’ve heard great things about the Always on Liquid Lipsticks from Smashbox and I am not the one to turn down a good liquid lipstick so I picked up the shade “Driver’s Seat”. Let’s just say I will be picking up a few more shades because this one is great! I also wanted to try the Photo Finish Primer Water and got the limited edition So Chill Coconut scent.
I needed a new eye cram so the Tolymoly Intense Care Gold 24K Snail Eye Cream was one I waas tempted to try. I had no idea that this was a huge 30 ml tube! Let’s say I will have eyecream for a while now!
The brushes are from the MorpheMe brush subscription and this month I got the R1 tapered powder brush, R12 fan brush, and R35 blender. All useful brushes! I was extra excited about the fan brush since I only had a very old and worn out one that needed replacement. And I never get too many blending brushes either!
I was short on lashes too! So this time I decided to try two new styles. One is the Eylure Exaggerate N 143. I really enjoyed Eylure lashes lately. And the other style is House of Lashes Featherette. A lash brand I am also very pleased with.
I also picked up one more shade of the NYX Powder puff and the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink. I had one of each from before, but wanted to collect a few more shades to be able to review them properly. The Maybelline one is “Poet” and the NYX one is “Puppy Love”.
Since I decided to start a Looxie eyeshadow collection I figured it was proper to pick up their magnetic palette along with a few shades. Here are Dream On, Deep, Amber, Root Beer and Bubbly. I just started doing some looks with these!
And no month is complete for me without a Colourpop haul or two. I mean how can you resist good quality for low cost?
I cot the Shayla X Colourpop Perception palette and the newer Fame palette along with the Lux Lipstick “Quickie”, Flexitarian Super Shock Highlighter and the single pan eyeshadow “Bassline” from the festival collection they released in April. Also a complimentary Super Shock Eyeshadow. Both the Super Shock shadow and Flexitarian came broke so I had to repress them. Oh well!
Also some necessities. I am soon running out of a brow pencil at work, so I need this E.L.F Brow Pencil. Just in case you wonder, I run to work every morning and get ready there. I don’t need a brow pencil for touch-ups. It is for my everyday makeup.
The Maybelline Mater Drama Kohl Pencil you have probably seen mentioned over and over. I am soon to run out of the second pencil, and I had to get this third one as a backup. It is just one of those things I never want to run out of…ever!
Since I’ve never tried a Ofra higlighter before, I figured this little palette with three of their shades Blissful, Rodeo Drive and Pillow Talk would be a nice place to start to test out their formula. The little palette is handy as well.
The Nubian 2 finally arrived as well (I ordered it the 11th April! and I got it a couple of days ago). I love Juvia’s Place palettes and I kind of want them all. So it was nice to add another one to my collection. They are usually so much fun to play around with!
And lastly I received my liquid lipstick subscription from LiveGlam KissMe with these three gorgeous shades!
I have to say I think I did pretty good this month. I am trying (very hard) to not buy more than what I have time to use and review properly. To be honest it piles up from time to time. You can tell my the amount of Throwback Thursday posts I am able to do weather or not my review pile is too big, and I haven’t been too good in that department since March, but I am getting my head over water hear now it feels. I typically review 4 palettes each month, and I only added two new (look at me praising myself for only hoarding moderately). Overall I picked up mostly things I was running out of and needed, and the review pile did not grow any bigger than what I can handle. Yay me!
Did you add something exciting to your collection this month, or are you rocking a low-buy?
