Small Feelunique haul (mainly sale)

I have a small Feelunique haul to share with you today. Every product is from either Huda Beauty, Wishful, or KAYALI apart from one item, and all products apart from that last one were on sale.

Let’s begin with this Valentine’s Day kit from KAYALI and Huda Beauty. I love my KAYALI Eau de Parfum Rollerball in MUSK | 12 & VANILLA | 28, they’re two of my favourite fragrances, and I’ve been wanted to try the KAYALI Eden Juicy Apple | 01 Eau de Parfum as well. This kit comes with a 10 ml bottle, and it also comes with a Huda Beauty liquid matte liquid lipstick in Lover. The scent is more fruity than the other two KAYALI scents, but still really nice. The lipstick is really pretty too; it’s a nice pinky red shade.

I also purchased the KAYALI Get Rich kit, which includes a 30 ml VANILLA | 28 hand cream and a 10 ml Invite Only Amber | 23 Eau de Parfum. The Invite Only Amber scent is a slightly deeper scent.

I also got a back up of the Wishful Honey Whip peptide face moisturizer, which has become my favourite moisturizer. I use this every morning, and it’s quite pricey, so I’ll definitely try to get it on sale, when I can.

The last item I picked up, which was not on sale, but it’s so affordable anyways, was the Essence Disney Princess Rapunzel eyeshadow brush. I’d already purchased the other brushes from this collection, so I thought I would get the last one as well.

Collective Sephora haul (January 2022)

I have a rather large collective Sephora haul to share with you today. This haul is a mix of Valentine’s Day releases, my first Rare Beauty products, and sale items.

Let’s begin with the Valentine’s Day products. This is the Pat McGrath Love & Lust: Gloss Duo. To be honest, I think I purchased this gloss duo exclusively for the cute packaging, because I haven’t worn any of them yet.

I also purchased the Valentine’s exclusive set from Natasha Denona which was the limited edition Mini Crush palette and eyeshadow brush. I’ve expressed my love for Natasha Denona eyeshadow palettes many times before, so of course I had to add this mini to my collection. I wore this palette here.

I also purchased two more products from Natasha Denona. I got the Mini Biba palette and the I Need A Nude lipstick in Charlotte 15% off. Both of these products are so nice.

Here’s a random group of products which I got on sale. I picked up a full size of the Wishful Honey Whip peptide face moisturizer, which I love and use every day. I also picked up another Pat McGrath Skin Fetish: Divine blush, a Milk Makeup matte bronzer travel size stick bronzer, and a Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush matte lipstick.

This is the Pat McGrath blush, and it’s in the shade Cherish. It’s so beautiful!

I’ve heard a lot about this Milk Makeup stick bronzer, so I decided to get the travel size in the shade Baked. It’s super pigmented, so a little goes a loooong way.

The Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush matte lipstick is in the shade Pumpkin Rose, and I’d thought about getting this shade a long time ago, so I decided to finally get it now that it was on sale. It’s such a pretty yellow based orange.

These are my Rare Beauty purchases. I decided to pick up a Soft Pinch Matte liquid blush in the shade Grace and a Soft Pinch Dewy liquid blush in Grateful. They’re super pigmented and I haven’t quite figured out the best way to apply them yet. I also picked up the Positive Light liquid highlighter in Enchant, which is a pretty pink shade.

I’d been wanted to try the Rms Beauty Living Luminizer for quite some time, but it’s really expensive, so when I found it as a part of the Sephora Favourites GOOD FOR Selection, which was on sale and cheaper than the one cream highlighter, I was very excited. I’ve already featured the Living Luminizer in a 5 favourites, and I’m still obsessed with it. The set also included a mini Milk Makeup Hydro Grip primer, which I’d also been wanted to try, the Ren Clean Skincare Mattifying mineral face sunscreen, the Pai Skincare The Impossible Glow bronzing drops, the Sephora Collection Beautiful Lash mascara, and the Sephora Collection Waterproof eye pencil in 01 Fresh Licorice.

Lastly, I got free gift as well. It includes a Sephora shimmery seethrough make-up bag and two mini mascaras; a Sephora Big By Definition mascara and a Pat McGrath Dark Star mascara in Xtreme Black.

Collective haul – clothes + beauty (January)

I have quite the large collective haul to share with you today. These are clothing and beauty items that I purchased throughout January. Let’s begin with the clothes.

You know how much I love Christmas and Christmas jumpers, so I always look out for them when the January sales begin. This cardigan is from PULL&BEAR, and I didn’t already have a Christmas cardigan, so I had to add this to my ever growing Christmas jumper collection.

I might as well talk about both of these next pieces at the same time considered they have the exact same print. They’re from Monki, and I love the retro floral print and the pastel colours. I’ve already posted a look wearing these two items.

I’m really glad that I discovered these tights from the brand Calzedonia. I picked up a purple pair, another navy pair (because I wear navy tights very often), a dark brown pair, and an off-white pair. I just really like the thickness and texture of these tights.

Let’s move on to make-up and skin care then. I’ve been sort of collecting these I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale palettes, so I had to add the Mulan one to my collection. The eyeshadows are usually okay, though not my favourites, but the cheek products are quite nice.

I was quite intrigued by these Milani Cheek Kiss blush palettes. I picked up both the powder and the cream version, and so far I really like them. Especially the cream palette.

I talked about how much I’ve been enjoying Essie nail lacquers in a recent haul, and I also picked up this stunning pink shade with a gold shift called #680 One Way For One. I also finally got my hands on the e.l.f. Cosmetics Putty bronzer in Tan Lines, and it quickly became one of my favourite cream bronzers.

And speaking of e.l.f. Cosmetics Putty products, I also picked up another one of their Putty blushes. This bright pink shade is called Bora Bora. I also got a Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Blush in the shade Natural Glow, and then I picked up the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for spot treatment.

The other two skin care products I got was a full size of the Clinique All About Eyes, which I love and use everyday. The Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser was a free gift with purchase. From Revolution I picked up the Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer in Porcelain. And then I purchased the following two products from the Essence Catching Clouds collection.

I got the Essence Catching Clouds Cloud-touch Mousse Primer in 01 Up On Cloud and the Essence Catching Clouds Cloud-touch Highlighter in 01 Daily Dose Of Dreamy Clouds. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the highlighter, but I really enjoy the primer.

And last, but certainly not least, I purchased three more of the Clinique Cheek Pop Pearl blushes. These blushes are just so stunning; if you love a glowy blush, you have to try these out. I picked up the shades 03 Coral Pop, 04 Rose Quartz Pop, and 06 Garnet Pop, and I love them all.

MAC winter sales + Lunar Luck haul

I got a MAC winter sales + Lunar Luck collection haul to share with you today. Let’s begin with the sale items.

I purchased two more of the Aute Couture Starring Rosalia nail laquers, because I really enjoy the first two that I got. These two are in the shades Canela En Rama and Cayena. The bottles are so pretty too.

I also picked up the other shade of the Extra Dimension Skinfinish from the Botanic Panic collection which is called Royal Flush. This is a blush on me though, but it’s super pretty nonetheless. And I don’t think I’d ever heard of the Iridescent powder from MAC, but I picked up the shade Silver Dusk, and I thought I would give it a try.

I got another MAC x L Powder Kiss liquid lipcolour as well. This is in the shade Haute Pants, and it’s a very pretty blue based red. I really like the Powder Kiss formulas.

I loved the Cruella collection, and I thought about getting the 217S blending brush when the collection first launced, but MAC brushes are so expensive, so I’m glad I waited for a sale. And those were the items I purchased in the winter sales.

From the Lunar Luck collection, which was the 2022 Lunar New Year collection from MAC, I picked up the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Lunar Lights, which is a pretty gold, and the Powder Kiss lipstick in If Wishes Were Roses, which is a very nice pink. The packaging is beautiful as well.

5 favourites – May

The last spring month has come to an end, which means we’re going in to summer, and I’m very excited about that. I just wish that the weather would be summery too, but it looks as if my wish might come true towards the end of this week. Another reason why I’m super excited about summer is that it means that the summer holiday is not far away. I’ve been working a lot lately (this time of year is always stressful, when you’re a teacher), and I really need a long break. But, I still have about four weeks of work left, and we also have some May favourites to talk about first, so let’s do that.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Blemish Fighting Putty primer: The original e.l.f Cosmetics Poreless Putty primer is one of my favourite primers, and when I first saw that e.l.f Cosmetics had come out with a Blemish Fighting version, I was very intrigued. My skin has been quite nice lately, and I don’t necessarily think that this primer has much to do with that, but I really like it, and I’ve been reaching for it quite a bit.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish powder (shade: 1 Fair): It wasn’t instant love with this high end powder, but love it became. I don’t know why I wasn’t blown away the first couple of times, I used this powder, but the more I use it, the more I love it. I think my skin looks stunning all day, when I wear this powder, so maybe it’s worth the expensive price tag after all.

By BEAUTY BAY Midnight 42 Colour Palette: I haven’t hauled this palette yet, but I think it’s been my most used palette in May, so I had to feature it. You probably know by now that I love both purple and blue eyeshadow, so this palette was pretty much made for me. And I really enjoy the By BEAUTY BAY eyeshadow formulas, so I’ve had a lot of fun playing with this palette.

MAC M·A·CStack mascara: This mascara has gone viral for a good reason. This is only a sample, but I really like this mascara, so I might purchase a full size at some point.

Lego Creator Expert Orchid: I really needed a fun, little project to de-stress, and I love orchids, so I had to have this Lego version. It’s always fun building Lego sets, and now I’ll always have an orchid in bloom.

Feelunique haul (17% off – except Natasha Denona)

Back in early December Feelunique had a 17% off sale, so I decided to get a few Morphe products I’d been wanting for a while. I also decided to get something from Natasha Denona, even though Natasha Denona wasn’t a part of the sale.

The Natasha Denona Glam face palettes was released around this time, and I really liked the concept, so I picked up the Light version. It comes with a cream blush, and star glow highlighter (new formula), and five neutral eyeshadows. As I’ve mentioned before, ND makes great neutral eyeshadows, and the blush and highlighter are super pretty, so this is a great face palette.

Coca Cola is my favourite soft drink, and I’d been wanting to get this Coca-Cola X Morphe Awe Together artistry palette for quite a while. However, the colour story is not my favourite, and some of the shades are a bit underwhelming. But it’s cute nonetheless.

The main reason to make this order was to get some products from the Morphe Mickey & Friends Truth Be Bold collection. I’ve probably mentioned it a million times before, but I love everything Disney, and this Morphe Mickey & Friends Truth Be Bold artistry palette is just so fun. I really like the colourful colour story, and I’ve liked the looks I’ve created with it so far.

I also picked up the Mickey & Friends Truth Be Bold mega matte lipstick trio. It comes with the shades Bow Babe (nude), Oh Boy (red), and Goody Goody (pink). They’re very matte and very pigmented, and I love the Mickey & Friends faces on the actual lipstick part. So cute!

The last item I got was the Morphe Mickey & Friends Truth Be Bold 6-piece brush set. It comes in a cute tin, and the brushes themselves are super cute. I usually really like Morphe brushes, and these are no exception.

Black Friday Beauty Bay haul

I know, I know, Black Friday was half a year ago, but I’m just getting around to sharing my Black Friday Beauty Bay haul with you. These are the products I bought.

Let’s start with BH Cosmetics. I love both the BH Cosmetics eyeshadow formulas and cheek product formulas, so I purchased a couple of palettes missing from my collection.

This is the Hangin’ in Hawaii palette; a very pretty neutral and pink palette.

This is the Mimosa palette; a fun and bright mainly pink palette.

And the Belgian Waffle bronzer & highlighter palette. What I find a bit weird about this palette is that the bronzers are fairly light, but the highlighters are quite dark. It’s nice quality though.

From Made By Mitchell I purchased the Milk Blursh Collection including a white liquid blush in Milk Mix, a purple one in Dairy Queen, and a hot pink one in Cow Lick. I also picked up the Blursh and Brush bundle which includes two blushers in the shades Melon Sorbet and Peach Sugar and a MF1 Face Brush Cheek Stippler. I’m not quite sure I like the brush though. However, I do like the other brush that I picked up, which is the ME3 eye brush Tapered Tickler.

From the Revolution Pro X Marilyn Monroe collection I got the Eye Quad in White Pearl and the Lip Set Red in Marilyn Red. I’ve barely used the eye quad, so I don’t have many thoughts on that yet, but I like the lip set. Both products are very pigmented and a beautiful shade of classic red.

These next three products are the real hits of this haul. I love the NABLA Skin Bronzing in Ambra, and I’ve been using it a lot. I already knew that I loved the Clinique Cheek Pop blushes so I picked up the shade 12 Pink Pop. And I was very pleasently surprised by how much I enjoy the Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Highlighter in Pink Diamond. It’s very easy to work with, and it’s such a pretty shade.

I also decided to get the other two shades of the By BEAUTY BAY Disney Colour and BEAUTY BAY Lip & Cheek Duos. They’re in the shades Pinocchio Shorts and Mad Hatter Face, and they’re both very pretty.

And last we have this random little selection of items. I bought another Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour lip liner. This one is in the shade I’m Nude. I also picked up another Soda #talkofthetown lipstick. This one is in the shade 004 Total Pink. I think I’ve got most of the shades now. And the very last thing I purchased was the LastObject LastRound in Red and it comes with 7 pads for removing make-up.

Catrice and Essence Disney Princess collections

Today I have a joined Catrice and Essence Disney Princess collections haul to share with you. The two brands did this sister collab a little while back, and it’s Disney so of course I had to pick up most of the items from the collections. Let’s start with Catrice and then transition in to Essence.

Both collections came with three eyeshadow palettes. The Catrice collection consists of the following three palettes; Ariel 010 Treasure The Moment, Belle 020 Beauty Is Found Within, and Pocahontas 030 Follow Your Own Path.

Here’s a closer look at the three Catrice eyeshadow palettes in the order mentioned above. They’re all quite neutral, but I like the different finishes and textures of the shadows.

The collection only came with two highlighter palettes; the Ariel 010 Live Your Dream and the Belle 020 Never Give Up. They’re both very pretty.

The Catrice collection also included three different face serums. The Ariel 010 Down Where It’s Wetter contains hibiscus extract, the Belle 020 Broke The Spell contains rose water, and the Pocahontas 030 Natural Spirit contains sunflower extract.

I love the packaging of the lip balms. They’re glittery, tinted lip balms and there’s one for each of the three princesses featured in the collection; Ariel 010 Seashell Pearls, Belle 020 Free Spirit, and Pocahontas 030 Sheer Willow.

Both the Catrice and the Essence collections included a mascara. The one from Catrice is the Belle Glam & Doll False Lashes mascara, and the one from Essence is the I LOVE EXTREME Rapunzel crazy volume mascara. The packaging on both mascaras is so cute.

And now on to the rest of the Essence products. Their three princesses are Rapunzel, Jasmine, and Mulan. The palettes are called Rapunzel 01 Let Your Hair Down, Jasmine 02 Can’t Keep Me Down, and Mulan 03 True To Your Heart.

Here’s a closer look at the three Essence eyeshadow palettes in the order mentioned above. Initially, I was the most excited about the colour story in the Jasmine palette, but I actually liked the Mulan palette the best. The rusty, orangy colours were actually quite nice.

The last items in the Essence collection were brushes. I picked up the face powder brush in Mulan and the blender brush in Jasmine, and I really like both of these brushes. The quality is really good for the price, and they look super cute.

Collective haul (November/December 2021)

It’s time for a collective haul. This haul includes clothes, accessories, and make-up, and I purchased these items in November or December last year.

I only have a few clothing pieces to share with you. The denim dress is (funnily enough) from the brand Only, and you’ve already seen me wear this in a couple of outfit posts. The checkered jeans are from The Ragged Priest, and the tights are from Calzedonia, which has become one of my favourite brands for tights. I really like the quality and the colour selection.

Last summer, I purchased a handbag from the brand Silfen, and I really like that bag, so when I found these three bags from the same brand on sale (I got a really good deal on them), I couldn’t decide which one to get, so I got all three.

Let’s move on to make-up. It’s so difficult to get a good picture of the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder due to the shiny packaging. I got the powder in the shade 1 Fair, and this might be a very expensive powder, but it’s also a really great one.

From Wet n Wild I picked up the Fantasy Makers highlighter in Halo Effect and the Fantasy Makers blusher in Exit Stage Left. The highlighter is a very pretty pink shade, but the blush is nothing special in my opinion.

I also purchased a back-up of the Rimmel The Multi-Tasker concealer, which I love, and then I decided to try out the Pixi +Rose Glow-y powder in Rose Dew. I’m not quite sure how I feel about it though. I can’t figure out whether to use it as a blush/blush topper or a highlighter.

Last, but most certainly not least, I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills NORVINA pro pigment palette vol. 5. This is the only NORVINA pro pigment palette I own, but this purple/neutral colour story is just so pretty, and I do really enjoy using this palette.

MAC x L collection

Last autumn, I picked up four items from the MAC x L collection. I absolutely love the purple glitter packaging!

Here’s what the inside of the eyeshadow palette looks like. I would say that it’s a neutral palette with pops of pink and purple. I think it’s very pretty, and some of the shadows have some interesting finishes.

I had to pick up the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Show Gold (permanent shade), even though I have the shade in a palette from a previous holiday collection. I mean, just look at that beautiful flower embossing! The shade is really stunning too. The powder blush is in the shade Melba, which is also a permanent shade, and I do have it in a split pan blush duo, but I’m not the biggest fan of split pan products, so I wouldn’t mind having Melba as a stand alone blush.

The last product I picked up from this collection (this time around) was the Powder Kiss liquid lipcolour in the shade Sorry Not Sorry, and it’s a pretty pumpkin/burned orange shade. I really like the Powder Kiss formulas; both this liquid version and the bullet lipstick one.
