I have a collective affordable make-up haul to share with you today. It contains a bit of everything.
Let’s start with base products. Well, the L’Oréal Shake & Glow luminous setting spray might not be a base product per se, but you apply it all over your face, so I guess it kind of falls under this category. I’ve used it a few times, and it has the finest mist. For concealers I bought a back up of my favourite concealer, the L’Oréal Infaillable More Then Concealer, and the L’Oréal True Match Eye-Cream In A Concealer (shade: 1-2D Ivory Beige). I’ll be posting a first impressions on this concealer at some point, so stay tuned for that. I also purchased the L’Oréal True Match Perfecting Powder in 2.N Vanilla, and the e.l.f. High Definition powder in Sheer, which I didn’t know that I already owned. Whoops.
Then I purchased a bunch of mascaras. I bought two back ups of the L’Oréal Lash Paradise mascara and one back up of the L’Oréal Air Volume Mega mascara; two of my favourite mascaras. Then I bought the very popular Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High mascara, which I’ll also do a first impressions post on, and lastly I purchased the L’Oréal Lash Paradise mascara primer.
Now, let’s move on to some Essence stuff. I’ve bought three lip liners; two of the Stay 8h lipliners (shades: 04 Naïve + 08 Passionate) and one of the Soft & Precise lip pencils in the shade Late Night. I also bought the eyeshadow in 14 Flirting, which is a great transition shade and the The Highlighter in the shade 01 Mesmerizing. I liked the Fire lipstick from the My Power Is collection so much that I decided to get the water and air lipsticks as well. They’re called 04 Dance With The Waves! and 01 Up In The Clouds!.
In my last make-up haul, I mentioned the Essence Shine, Shine, Shine lipglosses, and I really like them, so I purchased another shade. It’s a pretty, sparkly, purple shade called 15 Watch Me Do.
And now on to the last three products from Essence. I found this new limited edition collection at my local supermarket last week. It consists of two eyeshadow palettes and two highlighter palettes, but I only got one of the highlighter palettes, because the other one (called My Little Gold highlighter palette) was too dark for me. The highlighter palette I got is called My Little Platinum highlighter palette, and it contains three shades. The two eyeshadow palettes are called My Little Copper eyeshadow palette and My Little Coral eyeshadow palette, and they swatch so nicely. The packaging is really cute too, and I really like the crown designs in the pans.
And last, but not least, I purchased two products from The Balm. I know that The Balm isn’t a super affordable brand, but I got these for a good price, and I didn’t know which haul to put them in otherwise. The products that I got are the Balm Beach blush and the Balm Desert bronzer/blush, and I’m excited to try these.
