June was another crazy month regarding hauls. But since so much takes 3-4 weeks or even more to reach me I haven’t recieved all of it yet. Maybe not even half to be honest. I have a lot of new fun stuff to play with, and palettes that will take me to the middle of winter to get through and review. I don’t know what to say, I am a collector at heart and new palettes just keep on boosting my creativity and joy of makeup. I do have a lot to work through though so I may considering posting two palette reviews each week for some time. But first I need to finish the construction work in my kitchen. We are tearing down roof and walls, putting in new windows, redoing insulation and adding ned floors, roof and walls in adition to the actual kitcken. I guess I don’t have to say that doing two palette reviews a week is a bit out of my reach at the moment, but maybe when winter approach.
Anyway, I always keep on rambling about random stuff and here you are waiting to see my hauls. Sorry about that! So here goes all:
As I mentioned in my single pan makeup collection post I do want to grow my single pan collection this year. One of the brands I really want to collect more shadows from is Devinah. I have a small collection of shadows from before which are lovely. Lovely enough for me to want to grow a nice Devinah collection. Since I love greens I figured the Kiss Me Clover green matte bundle was a great addition.
The Jeffree Star Blue Blood palette I have been waiting for to restock since forever. I mean, off course did I need a big blue palette right? My favorite shade of eyeshadow (but equal to greens) with Jeffree Starts amazing eyeshadow formula? Yes, please! Not to mention the palette is a gem on it’s own. No doubt a true collection piece that I could finlly add to my collection.
I was not joking about wanting to enlargen my single pan collection. These beauties are all from Looxie Beauty. They had a sale so I grabbed a bunch and now I have a complete magnetic palette with Looxie shadows, and they are so good I am happy to start filling up one more! If you havent tried their metallic formula you should (if you like metallic shadows off course) because I think they are phenomenal.
And off course I got some Colourpop. I don’t think there has been one single month where I did not place a Colourpop order since they launched their first palette. I am that addicted! I got the Main Squeeze and Blue Moon palettes, I love their monochromatic series, and on blush stick as well as one highligter stick. Excited to try those new sticks! Love a good cream blush or highlighter for summer so these came just in time (now we just need some summer here).
And since glitter is the perfect way to glam up any look, I had to go for this custom 12 pan pressed glitter palette from Colourpop. I have already tried a few shades and they are soooo pretty!
I also grabbed two of their new loose glitters in the shade “Gotta Jet” and “Far Out”. Much more fine milled glitter than the pressed ones, but still very pretty!
That collecting more singles thing was not a joke! This is the Awakening collection by Lethal Cosmetics. Another indie brand with fantastic single eyeshadows. And these just look so unique don’t they? I now have two 12-pan palettes complete by this brand, and off course hope to grab more in the future!
Makeupgeek Cosmetics is one of the few brands I feel very nostalgic about. I have been pickng up bits and pieces from their line ever since it launch. Can you remember back in the day when the first Makeupgeek eyeshadows was released? People went crazy over them, and they are still great. I got the brand new Beautifully Bare Face Palette in Light, and two single pan shadows in “Surf’s Up” and “Leafing So Soon”.
One of my gel liners was drying out so I figured it was time to grab the famous Inglot Duraline drops. And while I was at it I grabbed a black Inglot gel liner as well. I hav a purple one many many years ago and know they are great (or used to be at least!).
And this is what I was the most happy about by far. Natasha Denona makes one of my very favorite eyeshadow formulas, and picking up a new palette from her is always so exciting. This is the Gold Palette and the Sunrise Palette. I hope she will release more “mini” palettes like Sunrise. I don’t think it’s mini, they are just smaller than the regular palettes. The shadows are still bigger than say Anastasia. So I just love that we can get ND palettes for a more affordable price. Honestly I was afraid id would be like credit card sized and you could brely dip your brush in the pans, but this is decent!
Last but not least I got the Ofra Francesca Tolot Gilded Palette. I bought it almost solely for that peach glowy blush/highlighter, but the rest of the palettes look stunning too. This will be an all year palette for me because the pale bronzer works when I am pale, and the darker bronzer works for me in summer.
And thats all for now!
Did you pick up anything exciting in June?
