I have a Lyko haul to share with you today. The majority of the products are from Essence, but there’s also a Catrice palette and a Kokie Cosmetics blush in the mix.
This is the Catrice Fall In Colours eyeshadow palette. It might look like a pretty standard neutral palette, but there was something about it that drew me in. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ve heard that the quality is supposed to be really good.
Let’s move on to the Essence stuff. This is the WATCH ME GLOW, Honey! eyeshadow palette in 01 It’s Glow Or Never!, which is also a neutral palette, however, it has some interesting pops of lime green.
I picked up two things from the Essence Positive Vibes Only collection; the Positive Vibes Only eyeshadow palette in 01 Today’s Gonna Be Eye-mazing! and the Positive Vibes Only baked highlighter in 01 Light Up Your Day!. I really like the colour scheme of the palette, and the highlighter is a fun pink shade.
From the Essence Snow Much Love collection I got the cream to powder highlighter in 01 The Snow Glow Show! and the glitter liquid eyeliner in 01 Oh Snowy Shine!.
The last two Essence products I purchased were the Extreme Care hydrating glossy lip balms in 02 Soft Peach and 03 Milky Cocoa. I haven’t tried these on my lips yet, but I’m excited to do so.
Lastly, I picked up one more of the Kokie Cosmetics Soft Gradient blushes. When I picked up the other shades, I had also picked up this orange shade in Tender, but it came broken, so I got my money back, because it was out of stock. When it came back in stock I picked it up again, because just look how beautiful this shade is!
Here’s the make-up I wore Wednesday March 8. Bronze eyeshadow is probably the shade in the neutral family that I wear the least, but I really like how this dark, bronzy eye look turned out. I’m also in love with the lip colour.

I’ve been wanting to try Colourpop’s products for years, and the big sale in the beginning of the year convinced me to make a couple of orders which ended up being this huge collective haul. I haven’t worn nearly all of these products yet, but I’ve been quite impressed by the ones I have tried so far. Let’s just get into it.
Let’s get the Christmas collection out of the way first. I picked up the entire Disney The Muppets holiday collection, which included the Holidays! Holidays! Holidays! shadow palette, four Super Shock shadows, four Glowing Lips, and a Glitter Gel.
I love the colour story of this palette, and I love how it represents the different characters. I’m probably the most excited to play with the Kermit and Miss Piggy columns.
The Super Shock shadows are absolutely adorable! They’re in the shades (row by row): Yaaaay!, Holiday Hostess, Beat Drums!, and Wocka Wocka.
I’ve already worn three out of the four Glowing Lips, and I love the formula. The shades are called Picture Of Joy, Kissy Kissy, Chill!, Chill!, Chill!, and Warm Up Guy.
The Glitterally Obsessed Glitter Gel is in the shade It’s Moi, and it looks like a very pretty, iridescent/holographic glitter.
I also purchased the entire High School Musical collection. I loved HSM as a teen. This collection included the East High shadow palette, three Crème gel liners, three pressed powder blushes, and three Just A Tint lip tints.
The East High shadow palette is so cute. The colours are pretty, and the names are great.
I really like the Crème gel liners. These are in the shades Exit, Spring Musical, and In This Together.
These pressed powder blushes are so nice. I love the shades and the formula. They’re in the shades Playoffs, Freaky Genius Girl, and Wildcats.
I’m enjoying the Just A Tint lip tints as well. They’re in the shades Chello, Pop and Lock, and Status Quo.
Moving on to two Hocus Pocus collabs. The Witching Hour shadow palette is from an older Hocus Pocus collab, whereas the All Hallows Eve shadow palette, the Jelly Much shadows, and the BFF mascara is from the most recent Hocus Pocus 2 collection.
This is what the Hocus Pocus Witching Hour shadow palette looks like. I think this palette is very well thought out; it has a neutral row, and then a row of shimmers and a row of corresponding mattes.
I wore the All Hollows Eve shadow palette here, and it was my favourite make-up look from the month of January. I also love how this palette is colour organised in columns.
I purchased the three Jelly Much shadows and the BFF mascara as a set. The Jelly Much shadows are called I Am Calm!, Come To Play, and Shish-ka-Baby, and the mascara is in the shade Butcherson.
How cute is this the packaging on the Lizzie McGuire products! I picked up the What Dreams Are Made Of shadow palette and the two pressed powder blushes.
The colour story of the What Dreams Are Made Of shadow palette is so pretty and perfect for spring.
I also love these pink, shimmery blushes in the shades Dee-Lish! and You Are Magnifico.
I think this is an older palette, but I just love Disney so I also had to have the Disney Designer Midnight Masquerade shadow palette.
From the same collection I picked up the Lux liquid lip in Wonderboy, because Hercules is my favourite Disney film.
The last Disney product I purchased was The Nightmare Before Christmas Crème Lux lipstick in Sally. I would have loved to have had more pieces from that collection, but it’s an older one, and this was the only product left. It’s very cute though. And sticking with collabs though non-Disney ones, I picked up the Barbie Lux lipstick kit in Malibu Sunset, which comes with a Lippie pencil and Créme Lux lipstick.
More blushes! I picked up both pressed powder blushes from the Powerpuff Girls collection. They’re in the shades Fighting Crime and Saving The World.
This palette is actually what made me check out Colourpop’s website. It’s the Winx Just Like Magix palette, and I mean, just look at those shades! It’s a colour lovers dream. This is also one of the few products that wasn’t a part of the sale, since it was brand new at the time.
The main reason why I made multiple orders within a few weeks is because the Avatar: The Last Airbender shadow palette came back in stock. I really enjoy this show, and this is one of the collections from Colourpop that I’ve been wanting the most. I was also lucky enough to get my hands on the Fresh Kiss lip stain in Fanatic, the Super Shock highlighter in Got Glow, and the Fourth Ray Beauty Avatar: The Last Airbender Jasmine Tea lip mask.
I obviously love the packaging of this entire collection, but I’m a bit sad that the actual palette doesn’t have the same picture as the sleeve. However, it’s a beautiful palette; the four elements are incorporated so well into this palette.
The other Super Shock highlighter in this collection would have been a better shade for me, but I’m just so excited about getting my hands on one of them. The Fresh Kiss lip stain looks super pretty, and I love the Jasmine Tea lip mask; I use it every night before I go to bed.
This What A Bombshell 5 pan palette set was made in collaboration with Jasmine Chiswell. I’ve only used the Hello, Hollywood one so far, but it was so nice. They’re great little travel palettes or companion palettes.
This collection is so fun and summery (I’m pretty sure it came out last summer). I picked up the In The Springs shadow palette, the Super Shock highlighter in Flip Flop, and the Glowing Lip in Desert Aura.
A closer look at the three products; so pretty!
Here’s a couple of cheek products: the Sol Body cream bronzer in Light and the Just A Flush face palette. I’ve already used the face palette several times; it’s a great multitasking palette.
The last products I purchased this time around are five Super Shock blushes. The only shade that wasn’t a part of the sale was Chiffon (first shade in the top row). Jump Turn, Marguerite, Just Playin’, and Digital Baddie were on sale. Just Playin’ and Digital Baddie are from the Mariale collaboration.
These very last products were free gifts. The pressed powder shadow is in the shade Lovely Bunch, and the Lippie pencil is in the shade BFF.
Wow, we made it through the biggest haul I’ve probably ever posted:)
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. A very glowy peach and pink look, which is quite pretty if you ask me.

I have a collective clothes and beauty haul to share with you today. I purchased all of these items in January. Let’s begin with clothes.
You have already seen my wear all five pieces of clothing. They’re all from H&M, and I’m loving both of these tops. I just had to have the pastel rainbow cardigan for obvious reasons, and I thought the grey sweatshirt with the lipstick print and cute saying was perfect for me.
I love a pair of wide leg jeans, and I love a good print, so I’m enjoying wearing these three pairs of jeans.
Before we move on to beauty, I also picked up this little keyring lipstick holder from H&M to have on my everyday bag.
And now let’s talk about some make-up. I love all the Powder Kiss formulas from MAC, so I picked up one of the Powder Kiss liquid lipcolours in the shade Good Jeans, which is a fun denim blue, and two of the Powder Kiss Velvet Blur Slim Sticks in Rose Mary and Hot Paprika. I’m wearing Hot Paprika here.
I featured the NYX Born To Glow naturally radiant foundation in my February favourites, so I obviously love this foundation. I got the shade Porcelain, which is a great shade match on me.
I’m very intrigued by the Sephora Collection DO NOT DRINK perfumes, because of the interesting scent combinations. This one is the Spicy Blend Jasmine + Pink Pepper eau de parfum, and I’m excited to try it.
Here’s a little collection of products I picked up at the same time. I purchased the Clarins Water lip stain in 04 Violet Water, the Missha M Perfect Cover B.B Cream Spf 42 in 21 Light Beige, and the Pixi + Hello Kitty makeup fixing mist in a sale. The only product I’ve tried so far is the Missha M Perfect Cover B.B Cream, and I quite liked it.
The last two products in this haul are the Bobbi Brown highlighting powder in Pink Glow and the KVD Beauty Moongarden eyeshadow palette. I got both of these products 20% off.
I’ve had this Bobbi Brown highlighter on my wishlist for a while, and I thought I would pick up a mini to try it out.
The packaging of this KVD Beauty palette is stunning, and so is the colour story. I’m really excited to try out the formula of these shadows.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Since having a baby, I sometimes need to get ready quicker than I used to, so I’ve been trying to come up with quicker make-up looks to do in those situations, and this look is one of them. I’ve found that liquid and cream eyeshadows are the way to go when doing my make-up quicker. Face palettes also cut down time on the make-up application.
