Makeup Hauls – August 2019!

OK, so the hauls collected in August is quite a bit less than what I got in June, but I have a pile of things I need to review and I really need to slow down on collecting more palettes untill I work my way through a bit. So I am trying to limit myself a bit. Not being too successful but at least there is a decrease in stuff since last month.

Anyway, you may notice something strange, and that is that there are no Colourpop hauls this time. That’s actually the first time since I started writing these monthly hauls. There is just always something from Colourpop. Off course, I did order something, it’s just that the parcel arrived two days into September, so those items (which are delicious little things by the way) will be presented in the next haul post.

Since I already love Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick foundation, and really really like the Conceal & Define foundation I figured it could not hurt to test out their Matte Base Pore Blurring Full Coverage Foundation. I haven’t heard that much about it and it’s been a while since it came out. It’s kind of the same thing with these Makeup Revolution Eye Glisten thingies. There is one liquid shadow on one side, and a glitter on the other side. I picked up the shade Yours Truly (pink) and It’s Fate (Champagne and silver). No wonder that they release a bunch of stuff we never hear about. I mean no one in the world’s got time to review all their releases unless they were solely a Makeup Revolution review site. Anyway, I am excited to try these. Would you like to now what I feel about these? Or is the reason for the quiet around them that people are indifferent?

BH Cosmetics released some beautiful stuff lately as well! I picked up the beautiful Glowing in Greece blush and highlighter palette. It’s so so pretty! It rarely happens to me that I find the blush palette to be the most attractice in a collection but this time around that was the case. I also picked up the palette Summer In St.Tropes. It does have both some fun shades as well as more neutral options, which is something I love. But I have to admit the blues and the yellows was what drew me in. I hope the quality will be similar to the Weekend Festival palette, which is in my opinion the best palette BH Cosmetics have made.

Also, I was lucky enought to recieve some PR from Dumb Blonde Cosmetics, and I got the Tropic Like It’s Hot collection featuring 4 summery fun pigments, and 4 glitters.

I don’t showcase much PR on my blog or IG and the reason being I don’t really get much at all. Almost every time a brand reach out I do decline the offer. And I never reach out to brands to tell them about my excistence either. My philosophy is that I have so much makeup already, and I can afford to buy basically what I want, so I don’t see any point in recieving PR unless it’s actually something I would have liked to buy myself. After all my pile of new makeup is more than large enough to feed me with review material for my blog for months and months, and I don’t need free stuff I don’t really want to clutter up. I do think it’s better that I just buy the things I really want. But when this brand reached out I did a rare thing and happily accepted, because her products looks so cute.

And sure thing, the glitters are so cute! I do love chunky glitter and that is also a part of my collection that I feel like expanding. Chunky glitter can just save any look! So after receaving the PR package I was so happy with the products that I ordered these glitters as well, I even got some free samples thrown in the order which is so nice! Now I have a bunch of chunky goodess to add to looks.

I got some more palettes too! From Makeup Revolution. I already got two palettes from ther Forever Flawless series and I am quite happy with the formula on these. They are cheap, the packaging is nice, and the shadows are among the better ones from Makeup Revolution. So when they ca out with the Forever Flawless Ice palette, I just had to. It reminds me of simething though, because it looks awfully much like a Blue Blood dupe.

I am not a big fan of the food palette trend that’s been going on lately. I don’t want pizza palettes, or burger palettes, or milkshake palettes. Especially when they are shaped like mentiond food item. It’s just not my thing. But a regularly shaped palette with an Avocado theme I can get on board with. Besides I love green, and this palette looks so pretty. So the Makeup Revolution Avocado Palette had to be mine!

And so did this Turkish Delight palette (again something foody). This is the first one of the chocolate bar palettes I’ve tried. They never really tempted me, ut this one did! I love the color story, and also that there are several different textures in this palette including glitters! And glitter just makes me happy!

The last item is also a palette, but for your cheeks! The Balm just have the cutest

    1. Thank you hun 🙂 I just really have a lot already, and I always have a big pile of new stuff I want to review. I don’t want PR to take my focus of things I was actually interested to buy with my own money and are very excited about. But if I get offered something I would like to buy then it sure is a nice thing. And I am very greatfull for these glitters because I am working on growing my glitter collection so they were perfect 🙂

    1. Yeah! I feel a little bit guilty about that. I wish all glitter was biodegradable. I try to minimize the damage by viping it off with a tissue and throwing it in the bin instead of it ending up in the sink when I wash it off, but it’s hard to get everything. Please let me know if you have any good bio-glitters to recommend! I would love to know about them! 🙂

      1. Just replied to your other comment lol i have purchased from glitter girl they are an Australian brand but i do think a few other brands are popping up that have bio glitters.

        Like i said in the other comment i still do use regular glitters mainly in eyeshadows and like you i just remove most of it with a disposable cotton round and some makeup remover but their will always be a small portion that goes down the drain at some point.

        I’m definitely not perfect, but I try not to use them to much but i figure i have spent my money on them i may as well use them. I just try and be mindful when removing them.

        I agree i think the beauty and even other industries need to look at alternatives to plastics when making glitter.

        I’ve just trying to become more aware of things i do that could impact the environment but I’m definitely not trying do things perfectly all the time but just becoming more mindful about it. I mean we are all human and humans aren’t ment to be or do things perfectly all the time. Though i have definitely had moments of feeling guilty, but i just try to remember that we don’t have to do things perfectly.
