I went a bit crazy this month. And when I say that I did not even receive everything I ordered yet, you will understand why I say that because I already got quite a bit in the mail already! Almost can’t believe there is still more to come.
I am trying to plan out some sort of low-buy though, so I needed to stock up on things to review. I can always find an excuse you know! I will get back to you with a low-buy when I figure out when and how, but I think I will try out a low-buy in December to begin with and take it from there.
Anyway, November was high-buy, so here is the stuff I picked up!
I decided to dive into the Obsession London brand and picked up a few items that looks promising. The palette to the left is “All We Have Is Now”. The two blush palettes are “Mad About Mauve” and “Pinky Promise”, and the highlighter palette is “Dedicated”. The fun looking palette to the right is “If In Doubt Be A Unicorn”. I am guilty of picking up the last one just for the name. But don’t they all looks so pretty though? And this whole bundle just cost me 30£ which is just amazing if these are any good!
I have been the best customer at Tambeauty lately (the online retailer for Makeup Revolution, Revolution PRO, Obsession London etc). The palettes from the Christmas collection look so beautiful I had to pick up all three of them. First one came last month. This is the Revolution Jewel Collection Eyeshadow Palette “Gilded”, the last one can be found later in this post. I also got the Makeup Revolution The Mascara Revolution. I have heard good things, and I have heard it being compared to one of my drugstore favorites namely L’Oreal Paradise Extatic, so I am excited. I decide to try out the Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded palettes in “Velvet Rose” and “Iconic Division”. I am really happy about how they look, so I am hoping they are decent. The price is incredible 4£!
Also the Nabla Poison Garden Eyeshadow Palette found it’s way home to me. I love the single pan eyeshadows from Nabla Cosmetics and especially the mattes are so good. I am hoping this one will be good as well.
OK, I have been picking up new palettes like crazy this month I have to admit that, but Colourpop is so affordable! This is the Oh La La and the Brown Sugar eyeshadow palettes. I really like the size of these small little 9 pans!
The Bretman X Colourpop collection also tempted me…naturally! I picked up the Lit and the Wet eyeshadow palettes in addition to the two Glitterally Obsessed Body Glitters. I don’t know who Bretman is but he sure can make pretty things together with Colourpop!
After hearing so many great things about the BH Cosmetics Desert Oasis Palette I finally picked it up. I also got the BH Cosmetics Royal Affair palette but only because I love the Festival palette so much and since this has a similar layout I am hoping it will have a similar formula.
I also picked up the BH Cosmetics 28 Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette. This one I just grabbed because Beautybay had a 3 for 2 offer on BH Cosmetics, and it got good reviews by Temptalia. Not sure how much use I will get out of an all foiled palette, but I guess I have plenty of matte shadows to throw in the mix.
Something I really can add more of to my collection is glitter. They are excellent to amp up any look, and I really only have a few. So my glitter collection is something I would be very happy to see grow. On top you have The Gypsy Shrine Chunky Unicorn. I just love that it’s called chunky unicorn! And the two gels are Colourpop Glitterally Obsessed in “Avenue Of The Starts” and “Puffin”. I only picked Puffins because I love them. I actually have spent some field seasons in a bird cliff working a bit with them (biologist), so when I found a glitter with that name off course I had to have it!
Since I already got the two other ones then I guess I had to pick up the third and last palette from the Jewel collection of Makeup Revolution. This is the Opulent Eyeshadow Palette, with the silver packaging and the more pink toned neutrals. The top row of shadows in these palettes are stunning by the way!
I also decided to take my chances with a new Morphe palette. I’ve only tried the Jacklyn Hill palette (the big white one) and I really liked that, but the rest of the Morphe palettes never caught my attention (and I don’t think the old ones are good). But I decided to give the Morphe 35M Boss Mood Artistry palette a chance because it’s got some nice interesting shades and not just 35 boring browns.
I didn’t buy just eyeshadow palettes though. I also got myself a new highlighter. I love the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighters, so I picked up Maybelline Chrome Extreme in “Sandstone” and hope it will become a hit just like the regular Master Chrome Highlighters.
Some hair care stash from Feelunique. The KMS Add Volume Volumizing Spray is something I decided to pick up after finishing a mini sample. I really like how this gives volume to my hair while making it feel refreshed and almost clean again. The Redken Frizz Dismiss Smooth Force Smoothing Lotion Spray is one of my holy grails and I use it after every shower.
And just one order to try out Obsession London makeup is not enough (how about testing one palette first before ordering 4?…Not my style apparently). This is the Obsession Belle Jordon Palette (top) and Obsession Be Crazy About Palette (bottom). Don’t you think the colorful one looks like so much fun? I did some quick swatches and they can actually be good! Hopefully they will also be good on the eyes.
Off course, I did get my lipstick bundle from Liveglam. The KissMe Liquid Lipsticks have become one of my favorite formulas (except their darker shades, those are not that great) and I always enjoy getting my subscription bundle. This month we got three brown toned nudes. The shades from left to right are Numero Uno, Most Wanted and Relevant. All very pretty shades!
The reason why I keep buying way to many palettes can be at least partly blamed on Colourpop. I mean. how can I turn down this?? The Colourpop Chasing Rainbows is a fun addition to my collection, and a proof that Colourpop can go back to be called Colourpop instead of Nudiepop that they were for a while. I want more of palettes like this!
I received no less than 18 eyeshadow palettes this month. 18! That’s crazy. I may have to increase my number of posts to get through reviewing and posting looks with all of these! But I know I will have a lot of fun doing it. The tough question is where to start! I enjoy creating looks and writing reviews after all! But I do have to slow down a bit. I hope to only pick up 3 palettes next month and I will try my best to do so. I do have some more palettes arriving, among them three from Juvia’s Place and one from Violet Voss, so the next monthly haul won’t be a total dud even if I try to reduce my purchases.
I really do need to pick up the Colourpop Salvaje palette and the new Juvia’s Place palette, and there are so many more on my wish list! Any low-buy tips are welcome!
Did you pick up anything exciting this month?
Did I make you feel like you didn’t buy that much after all after seeing this mile long post?
