Mini Drugstore Beauty Haul + First Impressions

Drugstore Beauty Haul

Mini Drugstore Beauty Haul

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

Rimmel And Topshop Lipsticks

Topshop And Nyx Blushes

What? A beauty haul? What was that? Haha I cannot believe how long it’s been since I did one of those *hides in the corner* . Anyway, I hope you’ll forgive me as today I break the curse and it is here – a drugstore haul all ready for you! I am waaay too excited for some of the things I picked up recently, so doing a haul was in order. I started doing my annual spring makeup shopping and even though it might be a bit early for you, I am full of the cold and I cannot wait for the sun to finally grace us with its presence, so I couldn’t resist! I hope you’ll enjoy and as always – I will share my first impressions with each of the products below! :)

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

To kick off the haul, I of course have to break the rule and show you a product that has nothing to do with spring makeup, nor it is from the drugstore. Cuz I’m a rebel like that hah! Seriously though, I had to share this because I fell in love with it so much after only one use. The oh-so-famous Philip Kingsley Elasticizer completely stole my heart when I first tried it yesterday and I cannot wait to use it again. This pre-shampoo treatment has made my hair so bouncy and strong I can’t stop playing with it! Basically, you use it before shampooing and let it sit for about 20 minutes. It moisturizes brilliantly and makes the hair elastic, bouncy and shiny. The treatment is also supposed to provide UV protection and to prolong the life of color treated hair. My strands have never felt softer and less brittle and the good part is that the Elasticizer improves its results with every use! I. Am. Excited.

NYX Blush in Dusty Rose

I remember Fleur de Force raving about this blush a while ago and I recall wanting to try it so so badly! Well, it’s finally mine and I will not lie if I say that it’s been everything I’ve been using on my cheeks for the past few weeks. DustyRose is the most gorgeous matte dusty pink shade I own and I adore the natural flush it adds to my complexion. It has the loveliest silky soft texture and blends beautifully into the skin. It is incredibly pigmented and all you need is a light dab with the brush and you’re done. This gem will not budge throughout the day and it is undoubtedly the longest lasting blush from the drugstore I’ve ever tried. If you think you don’t need any more blushes – I suggest you think twice!

Topshop Cream Blush in Flush

Keeping with the blush theme, you know I love me a good cream blush and when I spotted this one from Topshop all I could do is cave and get it! Flush is probably the prettiest spring blush I could possibly find and I cannot get over how amazing its warm coral-y shade is. Flush adds the most beautiful pop of color to my cheeks, whilst still keeping it all au naturel. Love! The blush has a lovely cream-to-powder finish and blends into the skin so effortlessly and the pigmentation is insane. What I adore most about Flush is the stunning luminous finish it gives – it makes me look so fresh and healthy!

Topshop Lipstick in Ohh La La

As I lost my Topshop makeup virginity this week, I couldn’t go without trying their prominent lipstick range, so I took the plunge. Lost in all their fab shades, I kind of got the shade Ohh La La on a whim. I didn’t really think much about it but when I got home and had a closer look I instantly fell in love! Ohh La La is a beautiful peachy–coral shade and I love how bright, almost neon it is! It has a lovely semi-matte, velvet-y finish and glides on the lips like charm. It’s pretty pigmented and the formula is very soft and creamy and feels very comfortable on my dry lips. Ohh La La does cling into imperfections a bit but it’s nothing that a good exfoliation can’t fix. :)

Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss Lipstick in 110

Ever since I fell head over heels in love with the Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte lipstick in 107 (review here) I’ve wanted to try other lipsticks from the range. With that said, two weeks ago I was shopping with my best friend (check her newly born blog here) and I decided to swatch the shade 110. I didn’t really think much of it so we left the store and five minutes later Antoinette grabbed my hand and was like ‘What is this? You NEED to get it, it would be perfect on you!’ (such a little enabler!). Long story short, I went in and bought it and it was love of first use! 110 is this beautiful bright coral-y red shade, which would be so perfect for spring and it compliments my skin tone perfectly. The formula is a bit drying but if I moisturize my lips before applying it’s all good. The lipstick literally stays on for five hours, which is rather impressive and I adore the matte finish. Bring on spring – I cannot wait to wear this beaut on a more daily basis!

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Greenberry

Sitting on my wishlist for quite some time now, I am now happy to call Barry M Gelly nail polish in Greenberry finally mine! And it didn’t disappoint, that’s for sure! This little bottle of perfection is the perfect turquoise nail polish shade I have ever seen (and I have seen a lot!). It is the perfect blend of green and blue and I absolutely adore how bright and vivid it is –perfect for the warmer weather! The formula is so lovely – not gloopy and glides on wonderfully. Pop on two thin coats of this beauty and enjoy your beautiful, long-lasting tips, whilst admiring the high-shine finish. Couldn’t be happier and I think I sense a new nail polish addiction!

Have you tried any of these products before? Have you bought anything exciting recently?

Lots of love,

  17. I really wish we had Barry M nail polishes in the states! They always look so nice. I also wish Top Shop was considered more drugstore here, but I think it is more high end in the States since they do sell them in department stores such as Nordstrom, but one day, I will try one of their lipsticks!
