Haul // Lush, MAC, The Balm & More

Haul // Lush, MAC, The Balm & More

Autumn is in full swing, which meant it was time for adding some autumnal bits to my stash. We are talking spicy scents, vampy makeup and new skincare, which I am super excited to try out…

lush haul

Starting off with Lush, I obviously had to pick up a few of products from their Halloween Collection. The first thing I got was Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb. It smells divine and I can’t wait to see what kind my color it turns my bath into. Next, I got Sparkling Pumpkin, which seems to be everyone’s fave and I am looking forward to it making my bath all gorgeous. I mean – glitter and bubbles? Yes please! Lastly, meet Boo. He is a bath melt, he is adorable and I am excited for it to help me relax and make my skin irresistibly soft. Plan for tonight – sorted!

jo malone haul

diptyque baies candle

I have a serious soft spot for Jo Malone, so when I was in Brussels I just had to swing by their boutique. I wanted to pick up my favorite Pomegranate Noir Candle (here). It has such warm, rich and sophisticated scent that just makes me instantly cozy and excited for Christmas (I know, I know, but I can’t help it). Then I decided to treat myself to one of their hand and body washes and after sniffing every possible scent in the shop I picked up Wood sage & Sea Salt (here). It is such clean and fresh scent and I am obsessed. The price was ridiculous for what is essentially just soap but I figured that the bottle would look gorgeous in my new bathroom. Besides, I can always refill it with £1 soap when I run out and pretend I am still very fancy right, lol?

A few weeks before heading to Brussels I was having an “I have no good perfumes’ drama and Jo Malone came to the rescue again with their Blackberry & Bay Cologne (here). I must say it is my favorite perfume of theirs so far and I’ve been wearing it religiously. Review is coming up soon, so stay tuned.

The Diptyque Baies candle (here) has been on my wishlist for a while now and I though that this autumn is the perfect time to get my hands on it. The scent is, again, so sophisticated, it’s spicy, yet sweet and is the perfect candle to burn on a chilly autumn evening. It’s been keeping me great company and I would highly recommend you go sniff it because it’s blooming gorgeous!

the balm cosmetics haul

Makeup wise, I couldn’t be happier with the bits I picked up. I’ve wanted to try The Balm products for the longest time and now that I have I get the hype! I got the NUDE’ Tude Eyeshadow Palette (here) and the oh-so-famous Mary Lou Manizer (here). The palette is such a beautiful mixture of nudes and shimmers and the quality is insane. It definitely ticks all the boxes and I’ll be talking about it in details soon. The Mary Lou Manizer is all sorts of beautiful and I’ll go as far as to say that it’s already earned a Holy Grail status, which says a LOT.

From MAC I snapped an old favorite - Cranberry eye shadow (here). As the name suggests, it’s a stunning cranberry shade that’s perfect for the season and compliments green eyes beautifully. Next, I had to get MAC Currant lip liner (here). It makes all my vampy dreams come true and I love how deep and dramatic it is. The formula is not the best but the gorgeous deep reddish purple makes up for it and you can see it in action here.

I had to stock up on my all time fave concealer, the Make Up For Ever Full Cover (here). A few months back I picked up shade No6 but since my beautiful summer glow is long gone I had to get my usual lighter shade – N03. I simply love this concealer and if you’re looking for something that makes spots nowhere to be seen, this is your guy.

peter thomas roth face masks

I’ve wanted to try the famous face masks from Peter Thomas Roth (here) for ages, so when I saw that Sephora had Mask Sampler Kit (similar here) including three of their most-loved masks I had to add it to my basket. I still haven’t tried them but I am most excited to and I’ll report back soon.

bath and body works autumn pocketbac sanitizers

I just love the spicy scents from Bath & Body Works and my boyfriend recently surprised me with three of their Pocket Back Sanitizers (here). That’s the way to my heart, pretty much. He got me Pumpkin Cranberry Cider (my fave), Coconut Pumpkin Latte and Pumpkin Cupcake. They are all dreamy and so autumnal. Yum.

  11. Now that is a boyfriend who knowsss a good gift! Love a bit of bath and body works pumpkin...anything. I wish they sold it here, I remember they used to have a shop in bluewater but everything was exactly the same price in pounds as it was in dollars, which was totally ridiculous, so no wonder the shop ended up closing. I hope they come back some day with realistic prices as it's so annoying to keep buying on eBay or bribing my friend in thailand to get stuff there and post it to me! xx
