Black Friday collective beauty haul

This is going to be my last Black Friday haul, and it’s a small collective beauty haul.

I’ve been wanting to try out the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil highlighter for so long, and I thought getting the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb Baby – Travel Set would be a great way to do so. It comes with a mini version of the Diamond Bomb highlighter in the shade How Many Carats?! and a mini Gloss Bomb in the shade Fu$$y, which is a shade I didn’t already own. I wore the highlighter for the first time yesterday, and it sure is blinding and also quite glittery. I might have applied a little too much, but I did like the glass like finish of it, and it didn’t ruin the make-up underneath, eventhough it has a jelly-like texture.

I had seen ads about the L’Oréal Air Volume Mega Mascara and was intrigued. I won’t say anymore about it now, because a first impressions post on it will be coming up.

You have probably noticed how much I love coloured eyeliner pencils for my waterline, and NYX usually doesn’t disappoint when it comes to this category of make-up. These are the Epic Wear Liner Sticks, and I picked up the shades (from top to bottom) Emerald Cut, Cosmic Yellow, Pink Spirit, Frosted Lilac, and Periwinkle Pop.

The last product in the haul is not make-up, but a skincare product. I’ve been using the The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash for several months now, and I really like it, so I thought I would give Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask a go. It’s a gel type formula that you apply to your face before you go to bed, leave it on overnight, and wash it off the next morning. I’ve only used it a few times so far, but I really should use it more often to give it a fair shot.

Collective Black Friday haul: clothes, shoes, and accessories

It’s time for another Black Friday haul. These are the clothes, shoes, and accessories I puchased from various places on Black Friday.

The only clothes I bought was this Coca Cola sweatsuit from H&M, and I’m obsessed! I was never into wearing joggers, not even at home on the weekends, but that changed towards the end of 2020.

I only purchased one pair of shoes around Black Friday as well, and it was these purple boots from Asos that I’d had in my saved items for such a long time. You know how obsessed I am with everything purple, so I thought it was the time to get these.

And now on the accessories. I bought these sunglasses from Asos too, and I just loved the shape and the brown and beige colours. I can’t wait to wear these in a few months.

I also bought another big hair clip (in purple of course) to add to my rather extensive hair accessories collection. This one is from Asos as well.

How adorable is the Mickey Mouse watch! It’s from H&M, and I obviously had to have it.

A little while back I puchased a pair of golden T-Rex earrings from Topshop, and when I found the matching bracelet on Asos’ website, I added it to my cart immediately. I’m really into charm bracelets at the moment.

And speaking of charm bracelets, Trollbeads had such a great Black Friday sale, so I decided to buy the My Sweet Stories bracelet that came with the My Sweet Stories lock, the My Sweet Stories heart (a silver bead), and the My Sweet Stories glass bead (the two on the far right). I also puchased two more glass beads (Zebra and Red/Purple Armadillo) and two more silver beads (Crystal Heart and Singing in the Snow). I know that I’ll get so much wear out of this bracelet.

MAC Black Friday haul

It’s finally time to share my first Black Friday haul with you; I’m a little behind, I know:) Let’s start off with MAC.

I’ve never tried the Powder Kiss lipsticks before, so I decided to purchase the Showstopper Powder Kiss lipstick x 5 kit from the 2020 holiday collection. I still haven’t tried them out, but I like the look of them.

I got two lipglasses; one from the 2020 holiday collection called Break The Ice, and one from the 2019 holiday collection called Star Memoir. I’m wearing lipgloss more and more often these days, and these two are just so pretty.

I use Fix+ everything single time I wear make-up, and I love trying new versions and scents of the finishing spray. The Magic Radiance one is a back-up, because I already use and love that one. I haven’t tried the matte version before, so I’m really excited to do so. And I also added two more Fix+ from the Vibes collection (Calm and Play) to my Fix+ collection.

Now on to a little mix of different items, I also picked up in the Black Friday sale. I love the Glow Play blushes. They’re some of my favourites, so I picked up another shade called Totally Synced. Then I also picked up the Nylon eyeshadow (my favourite inner corner and brow bone highlight shade) in pot form, so it’s easy for me to take it with my when travelling. The lip pencil is in the shade Nightingale which is a beautiful berry shade, and the brush is the 221S Mini Tapered Blending brush.

Lastly, I wanted to show you the free gifts I received with my orders. First off, I got the Mischief Minx eye palette. As you can see it’s a bronzy, neutral palette, which is not the kind of palette I often go for, but I’m excited to compare the formula of the eyeshadows to MAC’s single eyeshadows.

I really can’t believe that I got three Extra Dimension Foil eyeshadows from the 2020 holiday collection for free! I thought about purchasing the middle shade when the collection launched, and now I’m glad I didn’t. The shades I picked are (from left to right) Firewerk The Room, Cooler Than Being Cool, and Explosive Chemistry. I’ve already worn Cooler Than Being Cool and Explosive Chemistry (see here), and they’re super pretty.

Jeffree Star Blood Money

I know I recently posted another Jeffree Star haul, but I have one more to share with you, and as you might have seen in some of my recent make-up posts, I’ve already worn most of these products. So here’s what I got from the Blood Money collection.

Of course I had to get the Blood Money palette; I love the Jeffree Star eyeshadow formulas, and I love green eyeshadows. This palette is really pretty, and I’ve already done several looks using this palette (see here and here).

I also purchased three of the new Automatic eyeliners. I decided to get the shades (from top to bottom) A$$ets, Resting Rich Face, and Armored Truck. I’ve tried the two green shades, and I really like them. I’m also really excited to try the blue-brown duochrome one.

Collective Beauty Bay haul

It’s time for a collective Beauty Bay haul. Some of these products you have already seen me wear, because I just couldn’t wait, but I still thought they needed to be featured in this haul. I have a bit of everything to show you, so let’s get started.

Let’s start with a couple of palettes, both from By Beauty Bay which is a brand, I hadn’t tried before, even though I shop a lot on the Beauty Bay website. This is the NikkieTutorials x Beautybay pressed pigment palette, which has a very fun and interesting colour story. I’ve only used a few of the shades so far, so I haven’t formed a proper opinion about this palette yet, but I’m really excited to play with it some more. As you can see the shade Vla arrived broken, but luckily it’s not a kind of shade that I use often, and I have that kind of shade in other palettes as well.

This is another By Beauty Bay palette, and so far I’m very impressed by the quality of these shadows. It’s the Book of Magic palette, and this colour scheme is right up my alley. I love purple and blue eyeshadows, so I was obviously very intrigued by the look of this palette. I’ve already done two full looks using this palette (se here and here), and I love how they turned out. I haven’t tried any of the purple shades yet, but those are some of the shades that I’m most excited to play with.

And sticking with purple and By Beauty Bay, I’ve also purchased one of their Liquid Crystal eyeshadows in the shade Amethyst. I have actually worn this, but I haven’t posted the look yet, but I can tell you that this liquid eyeshadow is absolutely stunning.

To finish the eye make-up part of this haul, I’ve purchased two of one of my favourite mascaras; the Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies mascara. Maybelline is new to Beauty Bay, and this mascara is pretty difficult to get a hold of, so I was really excited to find them on Beauty Bay.

Now let’s move on to lip products. I saw these NYX Diamond & Ice lip toppers and just thought that they looked so pretty. These are the shades That’s Fire and Power Trip, and they’re both beautiful, glittery, duochrome shades.

Then I got a few items from the Revolution Precious Glamour collection. They’re just so pretty and sparkly. Just take a look at this Bling Bomb lip gloss in the shade Opulent Light Beam. So pretty!

This is the Butterfly lipstick in the shade Extra Fancy from the same collection. I love the butterfly details.

The last item I got from the Revolution Precious Glamour collection is the Illuminator in the shade Million Dollars. How cute is the packaging!?

The second to last item in this haul is a product that I’ve heard many good things about. It’s the Milani Silky Matte Bronzing powder. I got the shade Sun Light, and it’s a pretty cool toned bronzer. I have only worn it a couple of times so far, and I need to wear it some more, because I have a feeling that I’m going to love this bronzer.

And now on to the last item in this haul. I’ve been really curious about those face rollers, so I thought getting this set would be a nice way to try one out and also get a few more items. This is the Brushworks Rose Quartz Roller Spa set and it comes with a roller, a Gua Sha, and a Konjac sponge. I haven’t had much time to try these items out yet, but hopefully I will soon.

Jeffree Star Velvet Trap lipsticks

Lipstick is my favourite make-up category (eyeshadow palettes are a close second), so I’m always excited to try out a new lipstick formula, even though I have my favourite formulas that I wear most of the time. My favourite liquid lipstick formula is that of the Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks, so I was really excited to try out the newest lip product in the Jeffree Star Cosmetics range; the Velvet Trap lipstick. He lauched 20 shades, and I decided to get 6 of them. The shades I chose are (from left to right) Naked Body, Chocolate Fondue, Unphazed, Drill Sergeant, Firestarter, and The Perfect Red. You have already seen me wear The Perfect Red several times, and I love it! The colour really is as close to perfect as it gets, and I really like the formula as well. It’s a really comfortable matte lipstick. I also love the light pink packaging; they have a magnetic closure as well which is always super satisfying in a lipstick. The only other shade I’ve worn so far besides The Perfect Red is Chocolate Fondue, and that’s a very nice shade too. But I’m really excited to try the other shades as well, and who knows, maybe I’ll be adding more shades to my collection in the future.

Another collective Zalando haul

It’s time for a collective Zalando haul. I’ve purchased most of these items a month or two ago, so it’s about time that I get to post this haul.

This fleece cardigan/jacket from Monki is incredibly soft and I of course love the colours (remember my obsession with everything purple).

This purple corduroy shirt is also from Monki, and it’s the same colour as my purple corduroy trousers, and I have actually already worn them together.

The last clothing piece from Monki in this haul is this dusty green short sleeve blazer. I have also worn this, and it’s such a fun piece and great for layering.

Moving on to Bershka and a bunch of Disney pieces. Most of them have Mickey Mouse prints, but I also got this Disney princess oversized sweatshirt, which is super comfy.

This jumper (also from Bershka) is just so cute, and I had to have it. I have already worn it, and I wore it with the jeans below.

These wide leg jeans are just great. They are really long, which looks great when paired with heels, but they also work with sneakers when cuffed. They’re from Bershka as well.

And now on to a few accessories. This Mickey Mouse belt bag is from PULL&BEAR and it’s so cute and appears very roomy as well. And that was the last Disney piece.

I had a zebra print bucket hat as a child that I loved, so I’ve been wanting a zebra print bucket hat to fit my adult head. This one is from Bershka, and I’m really excited to style it.

And now, shoes. I’ve been wanting a pair of chunky black shoes and was happy to find these ones from Bershka. I’ve worn them a couple of times, but sadly I’ve gotten hand sanitizer on them, and it won’t come of. Any advice on how to remove hand sanitizer from shoes?

Here’s another pair of black chunky shoes but in boot form. These are from PULL&BEAR, and they’re just a great stable to have in your wardrobe.

Last, but not least, I have purchased these awesome two toned knee high boots from Monki. I initially purchased them on Monki’s website, but they were sold out or something, so I was happy to see them on Zalando and purchased them immediately.

Holiday make-up haul

The only holiday make-up collections I usually buy are MAC and Jeffree Star, but this year there are so many cute holiday palettes and lip sets, so I decided to get some products from BH Cosmetics, Fenty Beauty, and Too Faced.

Let’s start with BH Cosmetics. I’ve never tried any products from this brand, but these are some of the most festive holiday palettes I’ve ever seen, so I had to have them. I’ve already worn both palettes, and so far I love them. The quality is great for the affordable price and the colour stories are so inspiring; especially the colour story of the Naughty palette. I can’t wait to create many more looks with these palettes.

I love Fenty Beauty as a brand, and I couldn’t resist a few of this year’s holiday sets. The first set that I’ve purchased is the Full Snap – Gift Duo which contains a limited edition Snap Shadows palette in Holo-Daze and a mini Full Frontal mascara. I haven’t tried the mascara before, so I’m excited to do so, and I love the Snap Shadow palettes, and the shades in this one are so pretty.

From Fenty Beauty I also purchased the Glossy Posse – Holo’Daze Christmas Edition which is a set of four mini Gloss Bombs in limited edition shades. The shades are (from left to right): Ruby Milk, Cake Shake, Taffy Tea$e, and Baby Brut. How cute are these glosses!

I’ve never been that interested in Too Faced make-up, but their holiday sets this year caught my eye for some reason. This Cinnamon Bear gift set is so cute, and I can’t wait to try both products.

This is the holiday set that started it all for me this year. It’s the Too Faced Christmas Snuggles & Melted Kisses – Gift Set which contains four mini Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear lipsticks in the shades (from left to right) Hot Toddy, Candy Cane, Sugar Cookie, and Caramel Apple. The packaging is adorable and so festive and the lipsticks actually smell like the things they’re named after, which is incredible. I have already tried a couple of the shades, and I’m really impressed by the formula. I’m going to keep my eye out for sets like this one in the future.

Annual Christmas clothing/accessories haul pt. 1

It’s that time of year again. Time for my annual Christmas clothing/accessories haul, and it’s a two-part haul this year. This part is going to be all about the clothes; jumpers, T-shirts etc. Part two is going to be socks, tights, jewellery, and hair accessories. Let’s get to it.

The one type of Christmas jumper which was definitely missing from my rather extensive collection was one with lights. This one is from a Danish brand called Julesweaters (which translates to Christmas sweaters), and I’ve had my eye on this one for a couple of Christmases now I think. It has lights in four of the baubles, and they light up when you hit them. I’m going to feel and look like a Christmas tree when I wear this.

Christmas and Disney are two of my favourite things, and when I saw this on shopDisney, I just knew I had to have it. It has pompoms, a bell and sequins. What’s not to like.

The men’s department of H&M always makes great Christmas jumpers. I mean, just look at these two. They feature two more of my favourite things; Coca Cola and dinosaurs.

And sticking with dinosaurs and men’s jumpers. How great is this one from Asos!

And now on to a couple of red ones both purchased at supermarkets. I really liked the blue details on the first one with the reindeer, and I think the gingerbread men and women on the second one are so cute.

Here are two that you’ve already seen, because I wore these in my last two outfit posts (check them out here and here). Both are from H&M.

I’m so excited to wear this matching sweatshirt and leggings set from Monki. I think it’s going to be so cute and cozy.

And last but not least, the T-shirts. The one with the sloth and the one with the gingerbread men are both from Monki and both adorable. The Love Actually one is from H&M (I love that film), and the Coca Cola one is from my local supermarket.

I cannot wait to wear all of these pieces!

Big collective H&M haul pt. 1

It’s time for a big collective H&M haul. Part 1 is going to be clothes, and part 2 is going to be accessories.

It has gotten cold outside, so it’s time for winter coats, scarves and gloves etc. I’ve gotten myself two new puffer jackets, and as you can see, they’re both purple, though different shades of purple. I just love purple so much that I had to have both.

Let’s stay with tops. I got one T-shirt and a bunch of knitwear and sweatshirts. The T-shirt is this cute light yellow one with a Mickey and friends print.

Sweater wests are a huge trend right now, and I love them. I loved the look of this cropped black one; I love the purple and pink flowers and the subtle kind of argyle pattern.

I’m not much of a cardigan person, but I really liked this Alive in Wonderland inspired one.

And now on to a couple of jumpers. The stripy one is from the H&M x Kangol collection, and I love the colour scheme and the oversized fit. The red jumper with a wintery Mickey on it was a must have for me. I could maybe have featured it in my upcoming Christmas clothing haul, but I don’t think it has to be worn only at Christmas time or in December in general. I’m actually planning on wearing it next week.

Okay, so the next couple of pieces are purple as well. Now you’re warned:) This is a sweatshirt dress, and it’s just so incredibly comfortable.

I got myself three Disney-related sweatshirt (well, actually four, but I’ll get back to that in a moment). I love everything about the Toy Story one. It says “Toy Story” on the front and has Rex pictured on the back. And it’s purple of course. What’s not to like. The lilac Aristocats sweathirt was just too cute to leave behind, and the same goes for the Alice in Wonderland rabbit sweatshirt, which has the cutest little white ruffle collar.

I’ve purchased one more sweatshirt, but it’s a part of this matching set. I’m not the kind of person that wear joggers, not even around the apartment on weekends, but that might have changed. I wore this set all of last weekend, and I loved wearing it. It’s so comfortable, but cute at the same time.

And the last clothing item from this big collective H&M haul is this festive checked midi skirt. It comes with a matching belt which is such a nice detail, and I think it’ll be great to pair with Christmas jumpers.
