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! Continue reading
I love a good mail day. Yesterday my Orabel order arrived which made it a great mail day. I’ve followed Orabel for quite awhile on Instagram but this was actually my first time ordering from them. Orabel is a Canadian online store that brings brands typically found on American and European websites to Canadians. My focus for this order was Makeup Revolution products but I also threw in a Morphe product to get myself over the free shipping threshold. Continue reading
Happy New Year everyone! Though I plan on sharing both my NYE makeup look and my 2018 favourites, I thought I’d first start off the year by posting my collective haul from December. I actually bought quite a bit of makeup from Sephora last month between the $25 off purchases of $75+ coupon code earlier in the month and then gift cards I received for Christmas. So let’s take a look at what I picked up last month. Continue reading
A few weeks ago I received an order that I had placed from Morphe! They recently (within the last few months?) opened up a Canadian website as they now have a warehouse here that they ship from. This was amazing news as Morphe’s shipping costs to Canada were generally pretty steep. On top of this they had a 20% sale for Canada Day so I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to order a couple things I had my eye on. I just love their eye shadow and their brushes so much! The quality is fantastic and the prices are so affordable and even more so now that they ship from IN Canada. Wooo! Continue reading
When I saw that Colourpop released a new Lux line of lipsticks, I was instantly intrigued. Seemed like a great time to place my first Colourpop order of 2018! Not only did I pick up a couple Lux Lipsticks I picked up a few other goodies that I’ve had my eyes on for awhile. What I love about Colourpop is that it is so budget friendly! I got all of the items pictured for under $50 USD (excluding shipping)! So let’s take a peak at what I picked up, shall we?
I think one of the best parts about the VIB Rouge Sale in the fall is that it is always right around my birthday. Between the desire to treat myself and a few generous gift cards (thank you to my family!), I usually end up with a pretty decent haul. The last of my packages arrived yesterday so I’m ready to share the damage with you!
Eye Shadow Palettes
Violet Voss | Ride or Die Eyeshadow Palette
I had only intended to get one palette during this sale, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Eyeshadow Palette, however, another gift card rolled in around the same time I got the “back in stock” email so it seemed like fate. I’m so glad that Sephora is carrying Violet Voss now. I bought their collaboration palette with Laura Lee last year and really loved it. It was a bit pricy but the 20% off made it worthwhile and they really do make great eye shadows. Continue reading
Hi guys! We aren’t quite at the end of the month yet, but I’m ready to share what I’ve hauled over the course of the month with you. It was supposed to be a small haul this month, however great deals and discounts seemed to change that quickly. So, let’s check out what caught my eye and came home with my this month!
I ordered both of these items separately but it made sense to group them together in one photo. The first item I purchased this month was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in the shade Ash Brown. I had got a sample of this last month and loved how it matched my darker hair better than the Taupe shade that I used to use. Later on in the month when the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Palette was part of the Sephora Wow Deals, I just could not pass it up. I wanted it when it first came out and ended up passing on it, but at 50% off I couldn’t say no. I’m excited to play with mixing different lipstick shades! Continue reading
Hi guys! Although it isn’t quite the end of September, I can assure you that I am done hauling for the month. So, I thought I’d collectively share in one place what I purchased this month! I’m planning on posting reviews, swatches, makeup looks and so on using these products so stay tuned!
L to R: Haze and Haze II
The first purchase I made this month was the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Haze Duo which was a flash sale/launch for 48 hours earlier this month. The shades were super unique to my collection and I looooove the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula so I couldn’t pass them up. I posted a makeup look using Haze II just a couple days ago!
Hi guys! February was a pretty slow month for me makeup-wise. I didn’t wear much on weekends, I only purchased THREE items and I didn’t post much. The month of February I think I just felt pretty burnt out in general so I spent a lot of time relaxing and not doing much in my spare time. I’m trying to get back on track and begin to focus again as we dive into March though! So, although I didn’t purchase much, I still did want to share the three items that I did pick up and some first impressions with you! Continue reading
Hi guys! If you’ve been here before, you’ll know that I love Colourpop! A few weeks ago they had a free international shipping promo with no minimum so I took that as an opportunity to order a few items. I decided to stick to products I haven’t tried of theirs, so I picked up a highlighter and a few of their gel eye liners! Items that I have had my eye on, but previously had been sidetracked by a wealth of lip products. As of writing this post, I haven’t tried these products on my face yet so in this post you’ll hear my first impressions from swatching them. I’ll do some full reviews once I’ve familiarized myself with everything, and of course, you’ll probably see them in a makeup look or two before that 😉
Colourpop | Hippo Highligher
I’ve had my eye on Colourpop’s highlighters for quite some time but when I saw the shade Hippo, I finally decided to take the plunge. This icy lavender shade is very unique to my collection and I can’t wait to wear it. The texture is similar to Colourpop’s eye shadows in that they have the unique spongey/creamy texture. My swatch does not do it justice!
