Collective haul (August)

It’s time for my collective haul from August. It’s mainly beauty products this time around, but I also wanted to include some jewellery that I got for my birthday.

I got this jewellery set from my parents for my birthday in August. It consists of a necklace, a charm bracelet and earrings, and it’s from the Danish jewellery brand Maanesten. You might have noticed me wearing these pieces in a couple of make-up posts. I love how dainty and pretty they are.

Before we get into make-up, let’s talk about tools. I love Real Techniques tools and decided to get the Prism Glo Shimmer eye kit, which I found on sale. It comes with seven brushes and a cleanse tin. I also got a new brush for my brows, because the one I had was super old and broken. I got the Kiko Milano Eyes 64 brow comb brush, and so far I have no complaints about it.

Then I also picked up some stuff from Lyko. From Essence I got the Make Beauty Fun highlighter in 01 Happiness Shines From Within and the Cute As Shell face glow booster in 01 You Shell Sea My Glow!. From Catrice I picked up a back-up of the All Matt Shine Control powder Healthy Look in 100 Fresh Neutral Beige, which I love, and I also got the All Matt Plus Shine Control powder in 002 Banana Bright. However, the most exciting item I purchased is probably the LH Cosmetics Shimmer Saga palette. It’s the first product I’ve ever purchased from LH Cosmetics, and I think I chose the perfect one to try out.

Here’s a closer look at the Essence highlighter and the Catrice powders.

It was really difficult to get a good picture of the LH Cosmetics Shimmer Saga palette, but it consists of four stunning shimmery duochrome/multichrome shades. It’s the perfect little companion palette.

On my quest to find fun cream, liquid etc. eyeshadows, I was very excited to try out the new NYX Ultimate Glow Shots liquid eyeshadows. I picked up the following three shades; 04 Grapefruit Glow, 07 Lemon Slayed, and 13 Plum Player. I’m wearing 07 Lemon Slayed and 13 Plum Player in these pictures, and I think they look very pretty, and they were also easy to work with. I might have already picked up a few more shades:)

I have some of the older, classic Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palettes, but I didn’t buy them, when they were the most popular, and I’ve never really gotten into them to be honest. However, I was intrigued by the new(er) Nouveau palette, and I’ve got to say that I’m really happy with this palette so far. I really like this new packaging, and the colour story is more interesting than a lot of the colour stories in the older palettes. I really like the formula of the shadows as well, so I’m excited to play with this palette some more.

The last item in this haul is the Made By Mitchell Where The Mangoes palette. There was something about this colour story that just drew me in. It also reminds me to pull out my other Made By Mitchell palettes, which are actually really good.
