I know it, you know it, we all know it – When it comes to beauty, I am a weak human being. I’ve been trying to save money and not splurge on unnecessary things, but between you and me, makeup is very necessary. To curb my cravings, I embarked on a tiny lil drugstore haul full of new products from the drugstore that I really did have to get my hands on. Surprisingly enough, my haul came to a nifty £35 in total which is pretty a-okay on a student budget IMO.
This product isn’t strictly beauty, and it is a repurchase, but I did pick it up on a whim today as I’m using up dry shampoo like no-one’s business. I was planning on buying a variety of dry shampoo products and put them to the test (I think I still might…) but I tried this one last week, and I’m pretty sold on it. Better than Batiste? Possibly. The best out there? Maybe not!
After hearing all the rave reviews of this new Revlon lipstick formula I just had to go out and purchase it myself. I was originally planning on grabbing Desert which is a nude-ish pink with rosy undertones however it did swatch darker than I’d like a moisturising lippy to be. If you didn’t know already, I am not about that slippy lipstick all over my face kinda life – so I stuck to a safe true nude with a slight rose undertone. I’m so excited to actually try this one as the shade and packaging is giving me life rn, but will it live up to the hype? Hmmm we’ll soon see, eyy.
Tati (aka GlamLifeGuru) reviewed the full collection of these babies on her YT channel recently, and that was it, I was sold. Not at all because I need to buy everything that Youtubers rave about (probs because they were sent them for free or get some form of commission on the product) but because I genuinely felt that she really enjoyed wearing them. This colour looked absolutely stunning on her, and looked very wearable for day to day. They had no samples to swatch in store *boo* so fingers crossed this looks just as good on me as it did on Tati…
I’ve been keeping a keen eye out for this at my local NYX stand for bloody weeks now, and it was finally in stock when I popped in today – can I get a hell yeah? I have so many foundations that I’ve ordered over the internet and completely got the colour matches wrong, so I can’t wait to be able to use them. I’ve heard good things about this foundation mixer so I’ll be sure to update y’all via IG as soon as I’ve tried it out! (@holstayy)
I was on the lookout for a brand new blush to try and saw this lil guy at the NYX counter, safe to say I fell in love after one swatch. It’s definitely more of a bronzer than a blush (sorry, not sorry), but it swatches the most beautiful golden glow and I just want to put it on my cheeks right now. And I will… as soon as I finish writing this post, promise.
I already rant and rave about NYX’s Prismatic Shadow in Girl Talk in pretty much any blog post where I talk about my fave products, because it’s been my holy grail inner corner and cheekbone highlight for months now. The formula is so fab that I went looking for another shade to experiment with when I came across Frostbite, a holographic white shade that shifts a really pretty purple-y, blue. Could this possibly be a budget product for getting that cult holo-highlight look?
Which beauty products have you hauled recently?
