Beauty Haul: Sephora, Lush, MAC and the Drug Store


Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! Oh, I cannot believe that it’s the end of the week; the time just goes by so quickly!! Anyways, I did a bit of shopping these few couple of days and I figured that I’ll do a haul, showing you all of the stuff I got! Hope you enjoy! :))

Beauty Haul
So the first place I went to was Sephora and I got some really lovely products that I am super excited to try out! Oh, and they have an ongoing sale which is pretty cool! :)

What I picked up from Sephora - Benefit and TooFaced
1. The first thing I got is this “Let there be bright” set from Benefit. As I’ve mentioned before, in my country we still don’t have many Benefit products, only few of their sets (and even this is quite rare!), so when I saw this I was beyond happy, cuz I’ve been wanting to try Benefit’s skin care product for ages! The set contains:

- Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream 14.2g (full size)
- Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion 50.3ml (full size)
- Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream 8.9g
- Benefit the POREfessional 7.5g

I am really pleased with the size of the items; I mean TWO of them are full size, which is incredible in my books! I cannot wait to try these out and I’ll surely do a review on them soon! Oh, and let’s just have a minute for the GORGEUS packaging, this case is just too cute!!

2. Next, we have this kit called “How to Look Best at Everything” in the color Light, again from Benefit. Now, if I have to be honest I didn’t get this set at Sephora, I got in online, but I decided to put in here just so you can see everything I got recently. :)) So, this kit basically contains: Small POREfesiaonal primer, a tiny bottle of the “Hello Flawless Oxigen WOW Brighening Makeup”, two Boi-ing concealers (number 1 and 2), “Hello Flawless” powder and a little brush to apply it with. I am pretty excited to how these products are going to work out, and I’ll do a post on is asap. :))

3. I also picked up this TooFacedChocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder” in Milk Chocolate. This smells heavenly on cocoa (the bronzer actually has cocoa in it) and I love it! The shade is lovely, it’s a bit lighter than I normally would go for, but I’m rather pale so I think it will work perfectly! 

4. Last, but not least I picked up an old favorite – TooFaced’s “Full Bloom Lip&Cheek Crème Color” in the color Sweet Pea. I love these crème colors from TooFaced, I have another one in Prim and Poppy and I love it! These little pretty things are supposed to be used on your cheeks as a crème blush and also on the lips for a nice pop of color. They are quite moisturizing and have amazing semi-matte finish on the lips. Definitely check them out if you haven’t already! :))

The next place I went to was Lush and I got some lovely, yummy things!

Lush Goodies
1. Firstly, I picked up the “It’s Raining Men” shower gel and also the “Vanilla Dee-lite” body lotion. They both smell amazing and I’s super excited to use them.

2. Then I also got a jar of “Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner”. I am beyond excited for this product!! I’ve heard so many great things about it and apparently it’s one of “the most luxurious” products from Lush ( as the assistant lady explained to me). This stuff smells incredible on roses, too! 

3. Next I got a jar of “Lemony Flutter” which is my favorite cuticle butter of all time! Mine’s just about to run out and decided to purchase a new one, because I seriously love it so much and I use it every night! :))

4. Then I saw the Lush’s “Soft Coeur” massage bar and I had to get it! It smells wonderful and moisturizes my skin so well! I like to use is once in a while, when I decide to treat myself a bit! <33

5. Lastly, I also took a bath bomb from Lush. I don’t think I’ve ever tried it and I know that many people rave about so I decided to give it a go! 

I also stopped by the drugstore and got some really nice stuff!

drugstore haul
  
1. The first two things I got there I think are my favorite out of everything I got! Aaaand they are Real Techniques brushes!! I got the Core Collection set which has four brushes for the face and also their Stippling Brush. They are incredible quality brushes, really soft and gentle and I’m looking forward to be using them!

2. Also, I picked up a Rimmel Blush in the color 150 Live Pink. It’s a gorgeous light pink color which has really fine golden shimmer in it! So pretty!

3. Next we have this Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo in the color “On and on bronze”! Funny story here, ever since these color tattoos came out in my country, I’ve been trying to find the color “Bad to the Bronze” and I couldn’t find it anywhere! Last week I saw that actually “Bad to the Bronze” and “On and on bronze” are the exact same product, but with different names! What?? Why do they need to have two names for one product I don’t know but I’m happy that I finally found what I’ve been looking for! :))

4. Then I saw this Revlon nail polish in the color 261 Sparkling. It is a nice rosegoldish (is that even a word?!) kind of color which has really prelly smaller and bigger glitters in it. I own a similar nail polish and I love it, so I decided to try this one, too! :))

5. I really wanted to get another shade of the Rimmel London Kate lipsticks and when I saw this gorgeous red color I knew I wanted to have it in my collection! I got the shade 22, which is a nice, true red color, which doesn’t have any shimmer it. It’s a really pretty shade and I hope that it will match my skin tone well! :)

I also made a quick visit to MAC's store and I was actually searching for the blush "Well Dressed" but they didn't have it in stock, so I took a look at their lipsticks. The one that caught my eye and I eventually bought is called "Syrup". It's a lustre and it's a nece, kind of mauve color which looks grgeous on the lips. I wore it a few times since I bought it and it's super pretty - it's a bit darker that my natural lip color is, which I love bacause this makes is so approriate for fall and winter. It looks quite natural when on, as well! :))

From my local pharmacy I got a new bottle of my favorite makeup removal – Bioderma. This stuff is amazing and I cannot say enough good things about it. <3

Bioderma - the best makeup removal I've yet found!
So lovelies, these were all things I got recently, hope you enjoyed my haul!

Have a great weekend and I’ll talk with you again really soon. :))

  10. Nice haul :) Just got my RT Expert and Stippling brushes this morning and loving them both! Re the color tattoo names, there's two separate lines - one for the US market and another for Europe. They've got different names, some of them are duplicates and others differ, though only slightly. The bronze ones are exactly alike :)

    1. Thank you lovely! :)) I just tried the brushes and they are absolutely amazing! <3

      Thanks for clearing the Maybelline issue up! I was thinking that this might be the reason for the different names! I'm so happy that the bronze ones are the same! I love the shade! :)

  46. Здравей!
    Имаш прекрасен блог, пълен с много полезна информация! Съвсем наскоро го открих докато се ровех за малко информация. Аз живея в чужбина и скоро ще се прибирам в България и почнах да сравнявам цени на някои марки гримове, за да преценя къде е по-изгодно да се купят. Ако случайно си спомняш, горе-долу колко струва коплекта четки на Real Techniques? Също така последно, когато се прибрах издирвах Revlon навсякъде и ги намерих само в Пикадили с много малко налична стока и почти никакви гама фон дьо тени и червила..

    Предварително благодаря за помощта! :))

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Здравей и много ти благодаря за милите думи! :)) Четките ги купих за около 70 лева и чесно казано мисля, че определено са по-изгидни в чужбина (поне от това, което съм гледала online). Revlon пуснаха наскоро в Debenhams, който се намира в Bulgria Mall и беше прилично зареден. Имаше доста червила и фон дьо тени, даже са пуснали и Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains! :) За жалост обаче в България не са пуснали за сега Lip Butter-ите, които мнго обичам! :(
