Jeffree Star Pink Religion collection

I know it’s been a while since this collection launched, but I’m still so behind on posts. But anyways, these are the things I picked up from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Pink Religion collection.

The main star (pun intended) of this collection is of course the Pink Religion eyeshadow palette. I really enjoy the Jeffree Star Cosmetics eyeshadow formulas, and I love pink and purple eyeshadows, so I had to add this palette to my collection. There are only three metallics in this palette, which I think is a shame, but it’s still a very pretty palette.

I was really excited to try the new Hydrating Glitz lip balm. It’s a shimmery tinted lip balm, and I picked up the shade Altar, which is described as a mauve pink. It’s quite sheer, but still hydrating and pretty on the lips.

I love the Velvet Trap lipsticks, so I picked up one of the new shades from the collection. This is the shade Always Faithful, which is described as a purple pink berry. It’s brighter in real life compared to what it looks like in this picture.

The last product I picked up from this collection was the Holy Mist Soothing Facial Spray. It has a very fine mist, and it smells great.

Collective haul (late July/early August)

It’s time for a collective haul. It’s a mix of shoes, accessories, and make-up. I puchased these things in late July and early August.

I’ve finally gotten around to show you the first pair of Crocs sandals I purchased last year. These are super colourful and summery, and even though I’ve mainly worn them at home, I’ve also worn them at work once and on a brunch date. I never thought that I would love a pair of Crocs, but I love both pairs I own. Btw, the Jibbitz are purchased separately.

I love Nike Air Force 1’s and I love lilac, so this was an easy purchase for me. What can I say, I love these sneakers.

The next three pairs of shoes (and the last ones in this haul) are all from Monki. I already owned the black version of the Mary Janes, and I love them, so I had to get them in white as well. I felt like I needed a pair of lace up boots, and I loved that the shape and heel are similar to the shape and heel of the Mary Janes. And lasty, how could I pass on the black and white checked knee high boots. I love the 60’s go go boots vibes.

Next up, a two pc of 70’s inspired scarves and the prettiest brown, pink and mustard colours. These are from Stradivarius.

And now on to the make-up. I purchased three products from Essence’s summer collection called Vintage Beach. I got the Essence Vintage Beach sea salt hair spray in 01 Salty Hair, I Mist You, the Essence Vintage Beach baked highlighter in 01 Sun, Sand, Me and Vitamin Sea, and the Essence Vintage Beach eyeshadow palette in 01 Sky Above. Sand Below. Peace Within. I’ve already gotten rid of the sea salt hair spray, because it didn’t work at all.

Here’s a closer look at the highlighter. It’s quite subtle, but pretty; I like the swirly design.

The eyeshadow palette is pretty too, and I remember the quality to be nice, but I have to try it again soon to make sure that I want to keep it around.

From Juvia’s Place I picked up the nourishing lip balm in 01 Peppermint, and I’ve used this so much. Peppermint is one of my absolute favourite scents, so I love the scent of this lip balm, but I love the formula and feeling on the lips as well.

Last, but certainly not least, I puchased six of the new (at least they were new at the time) Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipsticks. I picked up Forbitten Fruit (raspberry), I’m Vulgar (metallic magenta), Psychedelic Witch (muted mustard yellow), Deep Pockets (brown with yellow undertone), Special Order (deep yellow), and Cavity (neon doll pink). I think these are such fun and quite unique colours.

MAC haul – Botanic Panic + summer sale

I have a MAC haul to share with you today. This haul consists of a couple of products from the 2021 summer collection, Botanic Panic, and some summer sale items.

Let’s start with the two products I purchased from the Botanic Panic collection. I picked up the Extra Dimension Skin Finish in Fleur Sure, which is definitely a highlighter even though it comes in a smaller compact (the blush sized compact). I don’t mind though, since you almost never use up an entire highlighter. I also had to get one of the lipsticks and I chose the purple shade called Forget-Me-Naughty.

In the summer sale I picked up a back up of the Cherry Blossom scented Fix+ (this one is from the 2021 Black Cherry spring collection). I also picked up two Powder Kiss lipsticks and a Love Me lipstick.

The Powder Kiss lipsticks are in the shades Ripened and P For Potent.

And the Love Me lipstick is in the shade DGAF.

These last three products were free gifts with purchase. I can already say that I love the Magic Extension mascara, but I’ll be doing a first impressions post on it as well at some point.

I also got the Black Cherry Glow Play lip balm in Pinking of You. The Glow Play lip balms are very nice if you like coloured balms.

And the last gift I got with my order was the Lip Scrubtious in Candied Nectar. It smells delicious, and I really like the consistency as well.

Collective Christmas/December haul

Throughtout these first couple of weeks in December I’ve collected some beauty products and a jumper that I thought I would put together in one Christmas/December haul.

Everything in this haul is beauty related apart from this Christmas jumper. I actually think I purchased this on Black Friday, so not exactly in December, but I wanted to include it in this haul. It’s from H&M and it’s a men’s jumper, but I just thought it was so fun and nothing like any other Christmas jumper I own. I’m actually planning on wearing it tomorrow.

From Essence I purchased these Christmas nail stickers, and I’m wearing a couple of them on my nails right now. I love making my nails extra festive in December.

I’m pretty sure I purchased this MAC Trick Of The Light Extra Dimension Skinfinish Kit on Black Friday as well. The MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes are some of my favourite highlighters, and the one that came with this set is called Magnetic Attraction, and it’s a very pretty champagne shade. The set also came with a make-up bag and the 143SES brush.

I recently purchased the three MAC x Keith Haring Viva Glam lipsticks. 100% of the price is donated to the MAC Viva Glam Fund, which donates the money to local organizations supporting women and girls, the LGBTQIA+ community and people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. I love the artwork on these lipsticks and the colours are so fun. The matte red lipstick is called Red Haring, the frosted yellow is called St, Marks Yellow, and the matte blue with has micro pearl is called Canal Blue.

Here’s a couple of products I purchased from Lyko. I had to get the Clinique Powder Pop Flower highlighter in Lunar Pop, and then I also picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Magic Touch concealer in shade 3. I already have this concealer in two other shades, which I haven’t hauled yet, but just so you know, I really like this concealer.

Here’s a closer look at the Clinique highlighter. Isn’t it just stunning!

The last products are from Sephora. I purchased these products last week, when all make-up was 20% off at Sephoras website.

I picked up the Hourglass Ambient Mini Lighting powder in Dim Light. I’ve been wanting to try this shade of Ambient Lighting powder, and I thought the mini would be so handy.

I also picked up two Natasha Denona products that I’d had on my list of saved products for a while. This is the Natasha Denona Bloom highlighting blush. I wore it two days ago, and it was stunning. It’s a mini as well, and it’s so cute.

I wasn’t sure if I really needed the Natasha Denona Mini Xenon palette in my collection, but after doing a couple of black and white eye looks lately (one of them including silver as well), I suddenly really wanted it.

Lastly, I got two gifts with purchase. I got the Sunday Riley Glycolic Acid Serum Treatment as a member gift and the Ren Ready Steady Glow Daily Aha Tonic was a gift that came with every purchase, I guess. I’m getting more and more into skincare, so it’ll be fun to try these at some point.

Revolution x Bratz

I loved Bratz dolls growing up, so the Revolution x Bratz collection is so nostalgic to me and I just had to get a handful of products from the collection. The pictures on the products are from the first collection of Bratz dolls, which released in 2001.

I decided to pick up the Forever Flawless Limitless palette, which is the big palette with all four of the original Bratz girls on it. This is such a fun and colourful palette, and I love the packaging.

I also picked up two out of the four smaller palettes. I picked up the Cloe eyeshadow palette and the Jade eyeshadow palette.

This is what the Cloe palette looks like. My very first Bratz doll was the Cloe doll from the very first collection of Bratz dolls, so I just had to have this palette.

I also had a Jade doll (though one from one of the later collections of dolls), so I decided to pick up the Jade palette as well. I really liked the colour story of this palette as well.

Then I also purchased the kohl liner set, which contains four pastel coloured liners; one for each of the four main girls.

And lastly, I bought the Maxi Plump lipgloss and the Lip Crayon both in the shade Cloe. They’re both very pretty nude shades.

I Heart Revolution x Elf collection

When I saw this collection from I Heart Revolution my Christmas loving heart skipped a beat. Elf is one of my favourite Christmas films, and this collection is the cutest, so of course I bought most of the collection.

The collection includes two eyeshadow palettes, and I got both. This is the Ninny Muggins palette, and it’s adorable! I love the the packaging of this whole collection, but the packaging on this palette might be my favourite. The colour scheme of this palette is very cute too.

This next palette is insane. It’s the OMG palette book collection, which is basically four palettes in one. I haven’t worn this palette yet, but by the looks of it my two favourite “pages” in this palette book are the second and third ones.

The last eye products in the collection are the Eye Glisten eyeshadows. I purchased both shades. The gold one is called New York and the pink/red one is called North Pole. I’m really excited to try these.

This is my most used product from the collection so far. It’s the I Heart Revolution x Elf primer, and it has a beautiful golden glow to it. The perfect base for festive make-up looks.

I also purchased the fixing spray, because it was so cute.

I had to pick up one of the Christmas Cheer highlighters as well. This is the shade Jovie, and it’s the lightest of three shades. I love the quote written inside of packaging. “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!”

I bought two of the three Candy Cane lipglosses. I picked up the brown nude shade called Best Coffee and the pink shade called Cheer.

The last product (or products) I picked up was the Smiling’s My Favourite lip balm & lip scrub duo. The collection also came with some bath and body products, but I decided to skip on those.

Beauty Bay haul – lots of palettes

I have a Beauty Bay haul to share with you today, and it’s all palettes (mostly from BH Cosmetics) + one highlighter.

I love BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes, and the travel palettes are some of my favourites from the brand. These two palettes were new when I purchased them in June (!), and they are both beautiful. The top one is the Party in Puerto Rico palette, which is a lovely warm toned palette, and the bottom one is the Passion in Paris palette, which is a stunning blue/purple/burgundy palette, and it’s my favourite one of the two.

I have more travel palettes to share with you. I think these might have been re-packaged since I bought them. Maybe that’s why I was able to get these on sale. The top one is the Summer in St Tropez palette, which is a very fun, colourful and summery palette, and the bottom one is the Beautiful in Barcelona palette, which is a neutral palette with pops of blue.

Okay, this is the last travel palette in this haul. This is the Chillin’ in Chicago palette, which is now re-packaged and called Amore in Amalfi. I got this palette on sale too, so I’m not mad about having the old version.

I purchased one more BH Cosmetics palette. This is the Lookin’ Like A Snack palette from the Say It collection (I’ve also got the Do Not Disturb palette from that collection), and it has such a pretty colour story.

The last palette in this haul is the Wet n Wild Ice Cream Bee palette, which I also got on sale. I just thought this palette looked cute, and I have created a pretty look with it.

The very last product in this haul is the BY BEAUTY BAY Pride powder highlighter in Parade. The powder goes from blue to pink to gold, and it’s just such a fun highlighter that still looks pretty on the skin.

Collective holiday make-up haul

It’s time for another holiday make-up haul. This one is a collective haul of most of the holiday make-up releases that I’ve purchased this year.

Let’s start with the BH Cosmetics Miss Claus holiday collection. These products are the most Christmassy ones in this haul.

First off, I picked up the Kissmas Wishes Liquid Lip Duo in Jingle Belle which contains a red liquid lipstick and a gold gloss; the perfect Christmas lip combo.

I also picked up the Bad & Bougie blush quad, which contains some really interesting and unique blush shades.

And I obviously had to pick up the big palette from this year’s BH Cosmetics holiday collection. It’s called The Lit List eyeshadow palette and it contains 30 shades. They all look so pretty!

This year I also picked up the limited edition Ambient Lighting palette from Hourglass. It’s called Ambient Lighting Edit Universe complexion palette, and it contains five beautiful complexion products. The packaging is stunning too.

The last couple of holiday releases that I’ve purchased are lipsticks. I thought the Clinique Plenty of Pop lipstick set was so cute. I mean, just look at that candy like packaging! I’ve tried three out of five shades already, and I really like the formula.

Lastly, I picked up one of the Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Metallics limited edition metallic lipsticks, because it just looked so beautiful. I chose the shade 003 Fiery Red, and it’s such a pretty, metallic red shade. Stay tuned for one more Christmas themed make-up haul.

MAC Hypnotizing Holiday

It’s time to begin the holiday/Christmas posts, and let’s start with this year’s limited edition holiday collection from MAC called Hypnotizing Holiday. From the colour collection I purchased two lipsticks, one of the Hyper Real Glow Duos, and one of the Powerpoint eye pencils.

I picked up the frost lipstick in Berry Tricky, which is described as a purple w/ purple pearl, and the matte lipstick in Wild Card, which is described as a blue red (I would say that it has a hint of pink to it).

I chose the Hyper Real Glow Duo in Fortune Teller/Blizzard Wizard, because it was the most unique one. The shades are described as a red with red pearl and a white that breaks gold.

The Powerpoint eye pencil has the cutest star shaped lid, and I purchased the shade Mistletoe Mint, which is obviously a mint shade.

I also picked up a face palette and an eyeshadow palette from the collection.

This is the Step Bright Up Extra Dimension Skinfinish palette in Light. I usually love the Extra Dimension face palettes from the holiday collections, and I think this one will be no exception. I’ve only used the middle shade so far, but it was very pretty. I love that it’s a gold shade pale enough for my fair skin. The lavender shade looks so pretty too.

The collection comes with three 6-pan eyeshadow palettes, and I picked up the Surprise Eyes eye shadow x 6 in Rich, because I liked the colour story of this one the best. Plums and reds are always pretty for the holiday season.

Smaller Beauty Bay haul

I have a smaller Beauty Bay haul to share with you today. I purchased these products back in late May, when Jeffree Star released a bunch of new shades of his Velvet Trap lipsticks, so I purchased four of those. I also picked up a couple of other products at the same time.

I had to get two of the red shades from the Velvet Trap lipstick line extension. I picked up RedRum, which I also own in the Velour liquid lipstick formula, the older Lip Ammunition formula, and as the Velour lip liner. It’s my favourite shade of classic red. I also picked up the shade Red Affair, which I also own in the Supreme Gloss formula, and I love that shade too.

The shade that I was most excited about was definitely the shade Extending the Olive Branch, which is a mustard yellow. I’d been wanting a mustard yellow lipstick for a while, so I was so excited to finally have one in my lipstick collection, and I love it. I also picked up the shade Gardening Hoe, which is a muted nude yellow, which is also a shade that I’m really into.

One of the other two products I picked up was the Made By Mitchell Mini Mitchell Vol. 1 palette (& pouch). I really like the Made By Mitchell eyeshadows, and this mini palette comes with some fun colours.

The last product I picked up was a back-up of the Soda #wowbrow Flat Brow Liner in the shade Kim, because I love this brow pencil. It’s one of my favourites.
