I have a problem, I know. Another week, another makeup haul. There have been several product on my radar for quite some time. My skin has also become really oily, very quickly and so I wanted some products to suit this change. So sit back, relax and enjoy seeing how I’ve spent my money this month…
I will always have a place in my heart for Makeup Revolution in my heart ever since their second birthday event and they seem to be slaying with their new releases from their own spin on the Artis brushes to new highlighters. I couldn’t not pick up an item from this in this makeup haul. As a highlight enthusiast, and after being so impressed with Peach Lights from a previous range (see a review of that here) I knew I had to have the Strobe Highlighter from them. It’s not as pigmented as the previous however this has been great as a subtle glow on a day-to-day basis and it has actually lasted over 6 hours on the cheeks with only a little fade. For only £3 this won’t break the bank and it’s an impressive highlight you should all add to your collection.
RCMA No Colour Powder | £9.95
You’d only need to watch Kathleen Light’s video about this powder to be convinced you need to try it. Hearing this was a reputable dupe for the famous Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and the fact I’m getting extremely oily in the humidity we seem to be having in the UK recently I didn’t hesitate to try it out. It has no colour as the name suggests which means this will be suitable for all skin types. It can get quite cakey if you bake with too much product but it has done a very good job of keeping oil at bay. Would you be interested in a more in depth review? Let me know in the comments!
Another new powder added to my collection this month is the coveted Hourglass ambient light powder in the shade ‘diffused light’. I decided to go for this one as it claimed to help reduce redness whilst mimicking the look of when the sun hits your face for a natural glow. This is not a highlighter, more of a face powder with an iridescent sheen. I use this all over lightly to set foundation and so far I can’t stop using it. It helps to prevent my base looking flat and provides a beautiful, natural glow. This is extremely hyped and expensive but I am in love and so happy to have picked it up in this makeup haul!
Ever since I watched I Covet Thee’s video about contour shades for pale skin, I remained curious about the Kevin Aucion Sculpting Powder that is a cooler tone that most shades on the market to help mimic natural shadows and shape the face. It was a splurge, I’ll admit for quite a small pan of product but I’ve not felt a creamier powder before. I love the look it gives. If you would like a more in depth review of all aspects of this product, again just let me know!
This is my holy grail eyebrow pencil at the moment; perfect shade and consistency for my sparse, pale brows. I have have lost the one I bought a few months ago and felt no other product I have matches my natural hair as well at the moment and had to re-purchase immediately. It’s an amazing dupe of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whizz and I couldn’t recommend it more for those looking to fill their eyebrows whilst keeping them looking natural. My shade is blonde-shell for reference.
I have been researching for the past month to find a night product to help my problematic skin and every review seemed to point back to this. I have yet to try out for myself, but reviews have said it will help skins hydration and help with aging and acne. I’m up for trying anything! Have you tried it before?
Simple Micellar Water | £2.19 (usually £4.49)
This is not the most photogenic product, however my Garnier one had ran out I became desperate to replace it as my skin seems to love it when I use micellar water to remove my makeup. I love Simple products and hope this works as well as my Garnier one preciously. I can’t see the point in splurging on high end micellar waters when ones from local shops work just as well.
That was a makeup haul and a half, but there are lots of new additions to my collection I have wanted to try for quite some time. I’ll be more than happy to speak in a greater length about any of these products if you’d like and hopefully this will be my last haul on my blog for a while as I begin to set more time into my YouTube channel so make sure you’re subscribed here to keep up to date with new videos.
Have you tried any products from this makeup haul? I’d love to know what they are!
