It’s been awhile since I’ve done a collective haul post so I thought I’d share with you all the products I purchased during the month of August since the month is nearly over. Where did July and August go? I feel like I say this every summer but they just disappear so fast! However, rather than talking about how I already miss those sweet summer months let’s chat about the products I purchased this month!
The best hauls are the ones you didn’t expect to have. This trip to Winners/Homesense was supposed to be for my husband to find a new belt. As he was making the apparently difficult decision I peeled off and went over to the cosmetics section to see if there was anything good as it is so hit or miss. Oh boy the pickings were great that day! Though if I recall there were other products to deliberate between, I ultimately decided to take home the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moon Child Glow Kit and the Becca Cosmetics Luminous Blush in Blushed Copper. I’ve been eying up the Moon Child Glow Kit for a long time and regretted not getting it in the past so I really struck gold by finding it for $29 CAD! Blushed Copper was a bit of an impulse buy but I love Becca blushes so I’m sure I will enjoy it. The shade is a bit dark for my colouring but with a light hand you can blend them out quite well.
It’s tradition in my household to take a trip to Sephora when my blog turns another year older (what better way to celebrate than with new makeup?). When my blog turned 4 on August 13th I went over to our local store and after much deliberation, I chose the Violet Voss Sugar Crystals Palette. I’ve had my eye on this for awhile and I’ve seen Chelle of Makeup Your Mind rave about it on her Instagram Stories. I can’t wait to play with all of the fun colours! I guess that is one perk of the weather cooling down, I actually feel like wearing makeup again!
Another purchase influenced by Chelle and her addiction to the monochromatic 9 pan Colourpop palettes. It was really hard choosing just one but I was drawn to this red one (Main Squeeze) as I enjoy wearing warmer shades in the fall. It also seemed the most unique one that I’d get the most wear out of. I chose to purchase it in the In Season bundle as it also came with two corresponding Creme Gel Liners (Get Paid & Best o Liner).
