Drugstore Beauty Haul!

Hello friends!

I’ve got another drugstore haul for you today because who doesn’t love hauls? And who doesn’t love products that are affordable? Nobody.

Without further ado, lets get into this.

#1. Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water (All In One Cleansing Water)

IMG_0533

Emma bought this in a hunt to try and find a dupe for her beloved Bioderma. She’s still trying it out and then she will give her opinion about it’s possible dupe status. If it is a dupe, then it’s a great price difference. I think this one was only around nine dollars. It also claims to be able to take off waterproof makeup- so that’s very exciting. If you guys have tried it and have thoughts then let us know in the comments! 

#2. NYX Colour Mascara (Mint Julep)

Even though coloured mascara scares the life out of me, Emma loves it. She picked this up and I have to admit it actually looks really nice on her lashes. We both have very dark brown eyes and this seems to work well with making our eyes pop. If you’re trying to dabble into the coloured lashes game then I think we would highly suggest you try the NYX range before you make the big splurge on a high end product.

#3. L’Oreal Infallible Liner “The Super Slim”

This is pretty self explanatory. We needed a new eyeliner, this one is Emma’s fav at the moment. She usually has pretty on fleek eyes, so i’ll take her word for it. And for around eight bucks, you can’t really go wrong. PS really like the L’Oreal Infallible line in general from the drugstore!

#4. Jergens Natural Glow (Gradual Tan Lotion)

I picked this up for myself and I have to admit i’m still a little scared to try it. Seeing as I spend 99% of my time indoors, even in the summer (thanks to my three jobs) I’m pretty pale. I really want to try this, but I am slightly afraid of having some funky tan lines. If you have tried this please let me know your tips/ thoughts so I can take the plunge and finally use this.

#5. NYX Liquid Suede in “Sandstorm”

This was something on Emma’s want list for quite some time. It’s essentially NYX’s version of a liquid lip. It’s in a nice neutral brown colour that people are seeming to go crazy over. I personally didn’t dig this the first time I used it, but she really loves it. I think I might have to give it another try….

#6. Batiste Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair 

IMG_0523

We needed a new dry shampoo and we spotted this, and instantly put it into our basket. We have such dark hair and it can get very frustrating when the typical formulas leave a white-cast in our hair. We have both tried this and we have a post about it coming soon, so stay tuned for more of our opinions there!

I hope you enjoyed taking a look through our most recent purchases. Let me know what you have tried or want to try in the comments! And as always, any post requests are welcome in the comments. 

Until next time,

Drugstore Beauty Haul!

April Sephora Haul!

Hello again!

I hope you’re all well, I have currently been drowning in the almost exam period at my university, so needless to say, i’m a busy bee.

I decided to treat myself for my birthday and do a wee bit of Sephora shopping. So if you would like to take a peek into my haul then get yourself a cup, a snack, a comfy chair and lets get started.

#1: Origins: Radiance Boosting Bests Kit (500 Point Beauty Insider Reward)

12966406_10209164852338657_587340425_n

What’s Inside: 

  1. A mini of the GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream
  2. High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream (1 oz.)
  3. Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash mini
  4. Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion mini

I was so excited to see this finally pop up in the rewards boutique. I have been saving up my points for something good and this did not disappoint! I love Origin’s masks so I cannot wait to try out the rest of the products. And ps they are all really generous sizes (especially the Night-A-Mins).

#2: Marc Jacobs Birthday Gift Mini Makeup Set

12966044_10209164852138652_406499524_n

What’s Inside: 

  1. Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick in “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”
  2. Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in “Black”

This was the birthday gift that I chose this year. I mainly picked it because I was running low on an eyeliner and figured this would be a good option. I’m happy with my initial swatches, the eyeliner is ridiculously black, soft and seems to be long wearing. The lipstick is a pretty neutral pink colour, so a staple for anyone really. Would highly recommend!

#3: Living Proof Sample Trio 

12988028_10209164851938647_2101826377_n

What’s Inside: 

  1. Living Proof: Prime Style Extender
  2. Living Proof: Instant Texture Mist
  3. Living Proof: Satin Hair Serum

This little trio was a gift for VIB and VIB Rouge members and I was super excited about it. I got the two of the three products from the brand that I really wanted to try and they’re huge sample sizes as well. I will try these and keep you updated.

#4: Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette 

What’s Inside: 

  1. Luminous perfecting powder in Sunlight, Moonlight
  2. Perfecting powder in Filtered Light (middle shade)

This palette has had me drooling over it for months since it came out. I was so obsessed that I finally splurged and bought it. This turns out to be a stunning palette and the packaging looks beautiful on my table. If you want a review on this then please leave a comment letting me know! 

So as always with my hauls, please let me know if you want my opinion/ review on any of these products in the comments below and I will write about them in the future! Let me know what products you want to try from my haul as well!

Until next time,
