Hello pretties, how are you? Hope you had a fab, sunny weekend! I personally had some strange few days full of both very positive and very negative emotions so I am rather excited for the start of the new week and I hope that it will bring me more reasons to smile! :) Yesterday I realized that I totally forgot to do a drugstore beauty haul of the items I recently got and since I adore them so much already, I had to do one asap! I got some lovely bits from Revlon, Sleek, Boujrois, Rimmel and Palmer’s and I hope you’ll enjoy! <3
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze
I had to start with the most exciting product of them all and it is this lovely gradual tanning moisturizer from Palmer’s. I think I’ve mentioned this before but I am actually terrible (terrible!) at applying self-tanners and I am always on a hunt for the perfect natural looking, yet easy to apply body bronzer. After reading tons of reviews online and asked for suggestions on Twitter, I came to the conclusion that my best bet has to be this Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze. I’ve already used it twice and I am seriously impressed. It is basically a gradual self tanner, which you apply either every night (which seems way too extreme for me) or whenever you feel the need of more tanned skin. This stuff applies really easily and streaky-free and it looks amazingly natural and not orange! One thing that bothers me though is the scent – it has this strong artificial cookie smell (with distant hints of your typical self tanners), which unfortunately lingers for quite a while… Regardless, I highly recommend this gem to anyone who is looking for the perfect ‘at home’ self tanner because it really works miracles and my skin not only feels super hydrated but also looks very healthy and glow-y! <3
Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Laquer in Celestial
I’ve been desperately wanting to get my hands on Celestial ever since the Rimmel Apocalips came out. You may know that I am a massive fan of the range and for me the Apocalips are hands down the launch of the year! Sadly though, they are still not available in my country so I had to order online and I could only trust Internet swatches on how the color would look like. From everything I’ve seen I fell completely in love in Celectial and since I placed my order I was anxiously anticipating for it to arrive. When I opened my package though, I was a bit disappointed with the shade because it looks much more dull and dark in person. It is quite dark, dusty brown pink shade and I’m afraid it doesn’t look very flattering on my skin tone. :( I still adore the formula though – it is insanely pigmented, applies easily and stays on for absolutely ages!
Bourjois Cream Blush in 01 Nude Velvet
I finally got my hands on one of the recently so-raved-about Bourjois Cream Blushes. I got the shade 01 Nude Velvet, which is a gorgeous light peachy shade, which compliment my pale skin tone beautifully and gives my skin this instant pick me up brightening look. It gives a lovely glow to my face and I cannot recommend it enough. Although, if you have darker skin tone I think this might be a bit too pale for you, I’m afraid. Fear not though, there are three more fab shades to choose from and I’m sure you can find your perfect match. The Bourjois Cream Blushes apply like charm and have a nice cream-to-powder finish bit still give a pretty dewy glow, which is amazing. They stay on for some good 7-8 hours on me and I urge to go get you some of these because they are incredible! (:
Sleek Blush in Rose Gold
Keeping up with the blush theme, I also got this gorgeous blush by Sleek. This little beaut is a repurchase because I gave my other one to my best friend, who fell in love with it a while ago. RoseGold is my favorite Sleek blush and I just couldn’t live without it for longer! :) It is a beautiful warm peachy-pink, which has beautiful finely milled golden shimmer it in and gives my skin a gorgeous sun-kissed glow. Even though it has very distinct shimmer in it, it won’t make you look like a disco ball and it looks pretty natural I’d say. I love how this blush brightens up my complexion and makes my cheeks look radiant. Rose Gold is a famous dupe for NARS Orgasm so if you’re not feeling like spending $29 for a blush, this is a great alternative. It applies easily and the staying power is decent. It’s really pigmented and I highly, highly recommend you go swatch it because I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it! <3
Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop
Last but definitely not least, I got this absolutely stunning lip butter from Revlon in the shade Lollipop. I honestly don’t know how to make a short description of it because I absolutely ADORE it and I can ramble about it all day haha! Lollipop is the most beautiful bright fuchsia pink color with some lovely fuschia and silver shimmer in it. It is a cool toned shade and we all know how much a love my blue toned lippies! <3 Lollipop compliments my skin amazingly and I think it’s safe to say that it built up its place as my number one lip product, even though I’ve had it for just a few days (sorry MAC Rebel!). It is super pigmented and definitely more opaque than my other Revlon Lip Butters. It has a gorgeous glossy finish and it’s so creamy and hustle-free to apply. Lollipop is really moisturizing and stays on my lips for about 3 hours, but you still can see a bit of a tint left on the lips, which is fab! Needless to say that if you are into more bright and vivid lip colors Lollipop is a must have and you definitely need it in your life! :)
