First Oden’s Eye haul

I’ve been intrigued by the Swedish make-up brand Oden’s Eye for quite a while, and when I saw that the entire Solmåne II collection was discounted, I decided to make my first order from the brand. Besides the Solmåne II collection, I also got another eyeshadow palette.

The Solmåne II collection includes the eyeshadow palette, 15 gel liners, 6 Sunlight Love blushers, 6 Moonlight Feel highlighters, and a makeup mirror. I’ve already featured the palette in a 5 favourites, and I think it’s stunning. The shades are so pretty, and the quality is great.

I love colourful eyeliners, and these gel liners come in so many stunning colours. They’re really pigmented too, and they last a long time on the waterline.

How absolutely stunning are these blushers! The packaging is beautiful, but so are the shades and embossing on the actual product as well. The three matte shades are called B101 Sunset Clouds, B102 Warm Sun, and B103 Orange Sunny. The three pearlescent shades are called W101 Roseate Love, W102 Peach Gleam, and W103 Sienna Lustre.

The 6 highlighters are just as beautiful as the blushers. It’s more difficult to show them off properly in pictures though, but they’re all duochromes and the shades are quite colourful and interesting. These highlighters are definitely unique to my collection. They’re in the shades H101 Moon talk, H102 Pink Star, H103 Warm Sunshine, H104 Lavender Dream, H105 Azura Shine, and H106 Rose Sky.

The Solmåne makeup mirror comes in two colours; light orange or light purple. I obviously chose the light purple.

Besides the Solmåne collection, I also picked up the Oden’s Eye X Angelica Nyqvist Hela eyeshadow palette. I love Angelica’s Youtube videos, and I think her palette with Oden’s Eye is beautiful. It has such a fun colour story; I really like the greens and pinks together. The quality of the eyeshadows are great too.

Collective haul (July)

It’s time for my collective haul from July. It’s a mix of clothes and make-up. Let’s begin with clothes.

I know that I can’t fit into these two Monki dresses right now, but I thought they were so beautiful so I just had to have them. When I’m not pregnant anymore, I hope to be invited to something where I can wear these dresses.

This Monki dress, on the other hand, you’ve already seen me wear. It’s just super comfortable and really cute. I love the colours.

Here’s another piece that I can’t fit into at the moment, but I’m so excited to wear regular trousers again. Especially corduroy trousers which are some of my favourites, and when I saw this stunning dark purple pair from Monki, I had to have them and save them for after I’ve giving birth.

Let’s move on to make-up. I’ve purchased my first products from Danessa Myricks Beauty. I picked up the Balm Contour in Light 1, the Colorfix Foils eyeshadow in Alien, and the Infinite Chrome Flakes in Laser Beam. I also got the L’Oréal Age Perfect Make-Up Balm foundation in 01 Fair.

Here’s a closer look at the Danessa Myricks Beauty products.

I also picked up the Sigma Renew lip oil in Tint, because I’d heard good things about it. It gives a very pretty glossy look to the lips with a hint of colour.

I love the KVD Beauty Dazzle Stick eyeshadows, and I’ve picked up two more shades; Flash Storm and Force Field. I haven’t worn Force Field yet, but I wore Flash Storm here, and I loved it!

Asos haul (July)

I have an Asos haul to share with you today. It consists of items from all categories; clothes, shoes, accessories, and make-up. So let’s get started.

This is not a maternity dress, but it sure has room of a pregnant belly. It’s from Asos Design and is feels and looks a bit like a duvet, but I think that’s kind of fun.

These next three (and last three) clothing pieces are all from Asos Design Maternity. Oversized T-shirts are nice and comfy when you’re pregnant, but the purple tank top has also been great in the hot summer weather, we had in August. I haven’t worn the leggings yet, but I’m sure they’ll be very comfortable to wear.

Let’s move on to shoes. I haven’t purchased many shoes lately in case my feet grew a lot during pregnancy, but they haven’t, so I decided to get a few new pairs. I’ve already featured these Teva sandals in my latest 5 favourites post, so obviously I love them.

The other pair of sandals, I got, is this lilac chunky pair from Koi Footwear, and I’ve actually worn them multiple times. They’re very cute and comfortable.

The last two pairs are mules. The brown checkered sandal mules are from Asos Design, and the pink chunky ones are from PULL&BEAR. All four pairs of shoes were on sale.

I purchased three accessories. The gold hoops with multicoloured rhinestones are from Asos Design, the hair clips are from Madein, and the necklace with beads that look like sweets is from DesignB.

I’d seen a lot about the NYX Wonder Sticks, so I thought I would try them out. I got one of the Dual-Ended Face Shaping Sticks in the shade 01 Fair and two of the Dual Ended Cream Blush Sticks in 01 Light Peach + Baby Pink and a Limited Edition Pride one in Prism of Love. The colours are very pretty, but I’m not sure how to get the best application yet. I’ve only worn them a few times, so I don’t have a proper opinion on them yet.

From NYX I also got the Ultimate Eye Paint in Exist Fabulously. This is such a pretty shade and actually quite easy to work with. It has nice pigmentation too.

I’ve been wanting to try the e.l.f. Cosmetics No Budge shadow sticks as well, so I picked up three shades; Champagne Crystal, Magnetic Pull, and Rose Gold. They’re a bit more subtle than I thought they would be, but pretty nonetheless and easy to use.

The last product is also something I’ve been wanting to try, and it’s the e.l.f. Cosmetics Brow Lift Gel. My favourite brow product is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze, and this is supposed to be a drugstore dupe for it, so I’m excited to see if it actual is.

Beauty Bay haul (July)

It’s time for a collective Beauty Bay haul. As far as I remember, I made two different orders from Beauty Bay in July, and I thought I could put them together in one big haul.

I purchased three palettes from By BEAUTY BAY; the Loves Notes palette, the New Mood palette, and the TECHNIDAZE palette.

The Love Notes palette was this year’s Valentine’s Day release from By BEAUTY BAY, and I didn’t purchase it when it released, because I already have a lot of purple, pink, and neutral eyeshadows in my collection. However, when I saw that it was on sale at a very affordable price, I decided to get it anyways, because I love the By BEAUTY BAY eyeshadow formulas.

On the other hand, I was sure I wanted the New Mood palette as soon as I saw it. This colour story is interesting with it’s mix of colours and neutrals, and some of the metallics are duochromes, and they’re stunning. Even though I haven’t used all the shades yet, I already know that my favourite shade is Inspired, which is the most beautiful blue-purple duochrome.

This is the first 8 pan palette, I’ve purchased from By BEAUTY BAY, but I just love bright colourful eyeshadows so much, and these shades are so pretty. I used this palette for my most recent make-up look.

I also picked up some more products from the By BEAUTY BAY Disney Colour and BEAUTY BAY collab. I accidentally broke the handle on my Jeffree Star Cosmetics hand held mirror, so I needed a new one and decided to pick up the Alice In Wonderland one from this collab. I also picked up the Shadow Stick Vault, which contains all six shades of the Shadow Sticks, and as you can see, they’re all pretty, colourful shades.

Lastly from By BEAUTY BAY I received this Super Plump lip gloss as a free gift with purchase. It’s in the shade Fizz.

Now on to a few more eye products. As I mentioned in a recent make-up post, I’m really into creams and liquids and all kinds of different types of eyeshadows these days, so I picked up the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Eye Gloss Powder in Voodoo Glass, the Danessa Myricks Beauty Twin Flames Multichrome Pigment in Passion, and I also decided to try the Danessa Myricks Beauty Infinite Chrome Pencil in Jade.

The Jeffree Star Cosmetics Eye Gloss Powder is a beautiful sheer gold with a green shift. The Danessa Myricks Beauty Twin Flames Multichrome Pigment is a pastel pink and lime green duochrome liquid eyeshadow (I’m wearing it here), and the Danessa Myricks Beauty Infinite Chrome Pencil is described as a seafoam green and periwinkle duochrome. I guess, I’m into products that shift green:)

I also picked up a couple of blushers. I got the Physicians Formula Matte Monoi Butter blush in Mauvy Mattes and the Melt Cosmetics Digital Dust Duo blush in Buzz Kill. Both of these products are very aesthetically pleasing, but one is matte and the other is glowy. I’m especially excited about the Melt Cosmetics blush, because I’ve been wanting to try it for so long.

I puchased three highlighters as well. I’ve already worn all three, and I love all three! Even though I own quite a few of the Made By Mitchell Blursh liquid blushers, I’m still not sure how I feel about them, but it’s a different story with this Made By Mitchell Blursh Lights liquid highlighter. I picked up the shade Champagne Spray, and even though I’ve only worn it once so far, I liked it instantly. I also got another shade of the About-Face Light Lock Highlight Fluid, because I love the formula. This time I picked up the shade Unrestrained, which is beautiful soft lavender. And the last highlighter, I purchased, is the famous Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector pressed highlighter in Champagne Pop. It is now called Smashbox x Becca, but the product is the same. I picked up the mini size, because I never go through an entire highlighter.

Lastly, I picked up two base products from e.l.f. Cosmetics. I purchased a back-up of the Flawless Brightening concealer in Fair 10 C, because I just love that product, and I also picked up the Camo powder foundation in Fair 120 N, which I’d heard such good things about. I’ve only used it a few times, but so far I like it a lot.

Cocopanda haul (July)

I have a Cocopanda haul to share with you today. It consists of a mix of products I purchased back in July.

Let’s begin with some random bits. This haul came together because I’ve been wanting to try the Maybelline Superstay Active Wear 30H concealer for a while. I picked up the shade 05 Ivory, which is a good match for my skin. However, I’m not sold on this concealer. At least not yet. I have to test it out a bit more. I also picked up the Wet n Wild Mega Slicks lip gloss in Sinless, which is very pretty. The two products I’m probably the most excited about is the MAC Shadeshifter Duochrome Eye Shadow in 05 Calling Your Bluff and the Clinique Almost Lipstick in 06 Black Honey.

I’d been considering getting one of these MAC eyeshadows, since the launched with last year’s holiday collection, and Cocopanda had this one shade left and it was on sale, so I thought that it was now or never. I haven’t tried it on my eyes yet, but I’m really excited to create an eye look with it.

Apparently this Clinique lipstick has been popular on social media. I just liked the way it looked in swatches and pictures, so I thought I would give it a try. I’m wearing it here, and it’s really pretty. A great lip colour for autumn.

Then I picked up some products from the Essence Cute As Shell collection. I got the Nail Polish in 01 You’re An Ang-Shell!, the Blushlighter in 01 Let Us Take A Shellfie!, and the PH-Reacting Lip Tint in 01 Ready, Shell, Glow!. All three products are very pretty. I’m wearing the blushlighter and the lip tint here.

The last thing I got was this Shelas sponge set. It looks like a holiday release (probably from last year), and it was heavily discounted. I purchased it mainly for the sponge holder, but it’s also nice to have an extra travel case, and I’m also going to try out the sponges at some point.

Collective haul (June)

My June collective haul is a slightly smaller one, and it’s mainly beauty products, but I thought that I would still share them with you.

First off, I purchased some products in the MAC summer sale. I got the Hit The Bull’s Eye Kit, which contains the 24-Hour Extend Eye Base, the Fast Response Eye Cream, and the Prep + Prime highlighter pen in the shade Bright Forecast. The only one of these products that I’ve tried so far is the Prep + Prime highlighter pen, but the shade is sadly a little dark on me. I’m excited to try the other two products though.

From MAC I also purchased the Prep + Prime Fix+ in Pinklite and the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Soft Frost. This Fix+ has pink shimmer in it, and I thought it would be fun to try. The Extra Dimension Skinfinish is Soft Frost is a permanent shade that I’ve been wanting to try pretty much ever since it launched. It’s described as a white that breaks violet, and I thought that sounded really pretty, and it is.

I received this eye set and a tote bag as free gifts with my order. The eye set consists of the In Extra Dimension 3D Black Lash mascara, the Technakohl liner in Graphblack, and the Brow Set in Clear.

The original Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High mascara is one of my favourite mascara, so I thought I would try out the newer Cosmic Black version. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m excited to do so.

The last item in the haul is not make-up, but this multipack of earrings from H&M. I think they’re super cute, and I’m pretty sure I’ve worn all of them at this point.

Essence Jurassic World collection

Essence released a Jurassic World collection around the time of the release of the third Jurassic World film, and since I love dinosaurs and the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World trilogies, I obviously had to pick up this collection.

The three make-up products in the collection was an eyeshadow palette in 01 Have A Raw_some Day!, a highlighter in 01 Extra Crispy, and a Ph-reacting lip glow in 01 Runnn!.

The palette is a cute little 8-pan palette with a half neutral half colourful colour story. I wore the palette here, which was actually on the day I went to watch Jurassic World: Dominion at the cinema.

The highlighter is very cute as well. It might look a little dark for fair skin tones, but it did work on me. It was just a more natural highlight.

I’m always a little sceptical when it comes to Ph-reacting lip products, but this one is probably the prettiest one I’ve tried so far. On the lips, it turns into a very pretty glowy pink, and it leaves a very nice stain behind.

The collection also came with a bunch of tools. I picked up the makeup sponge in 01 Bingo! Dino dna. I haven’t tried it yet though.

I also got the two face brushes; the highlighter brush in 01 Must Be A Fast Runner! and the powder brush in 01 Stay In The Car!.

Lastly, I purchased the eye brush set & makeup bag in 01 Bigger, Louder, More Teeth!. I think Essence makes really nice, affordable brushes. And these are just so pretty too. I love the packaging on the whole collection, but pink and orange is one of my favourite colour combos, so that might have something to do with it.

Collective haul (May)

It’s time for my collective haul from May. This haul consists of clothes, shoes, and make-up. Let’s begin with the clothes.

I purchased four dresses from Monki, and I’ve already posted outfits with all four. Monki has been my go-to non-maternity brand throughout my pregnancy, because they make a lot of loose and/or oversized clothes especially dresses. Also, Monki is one of my favourite brands in general; they have the best prints and colour combos.

The only other piece of clothing in this haul is this pair of pleated trousers, which is also from Monki, and I’ve also posted an outfit with these already.

I featured these violet Crocs in my last 5 favourites post with a mix of different Jibbitz. I purchased some of the Jibbitz (the bottom two sets) at the same time as the Crocs, and some of them I already had. I also purchased two sets of Disney Jibbitz, which are now decorating my black Crocs sandals that I use indoors.

Let’s move on to make-up. The main reason why I keep buying the I Heart Revolution X Disney Fairytale palettes is the packaging. However, this Tangled one is actually not bad. I really liked the look I created with this palette.

Next up is a mix of different products. I got the Essence Fix & Last Make-up Gripping Jelly Primer and the MAC Wild Cherry Pro Palette Eye Shadow X 2. I thought the little MAC palette would be nice for travelling. I also picked up two highlighters; the Catrice Glow Lover Oil-Infused highlighter in 010 Glowing Peony and the Pixi + Hello Kitty Glow-y Powder in Sweet Glow.

Here’s a closer look at two highlighters. They are both pinky shades and very pretty.

Essence recently launched a bunch of new gel nail colours, so I picked up a lot of shades; 17 I Lilac You, 23 Tangerine Ahead, 27 Hey Sand Tropez, 34 Love U So Mocha, 41 Violet Voltage, 45 Lavender Vibes Only, 48 Squeeze The Day, and 49 Save Water drink Lime.

Lastly, I picked up a few things from Beauty Bay.

I picked up the new By BEAUTY BAY Bright 2.0 16 Colour Palette. There are also 42 and 9 colour versions, but I liked the 16 colour one the best.

I also purchased another e.l.f. Cosmetics Putty blush. This is in the shade Fiji, and it’s a beautiful red shade.

And then I got my first two products from About-Face. I picked up the Light Lock Highlight Fluid in Fight Or Flight and the About-Face Light Lock Stick in Frenzy. It was love at first application with the liquid highlighter; it’s so stunning! I also like the highlighter stick, however, it’s very glittery, so I don’t think it goes with all make-up looks. But it is pretty nonetheless.

Essence and Catrice Disney Classics collections

Today I have an Essence and Catrice Disney Classics collections haul to share with you. The sister brands each did three eyeshadow palettes plus a bunch of other products inspired by classic Disney animal characters, and obviously I had to pick up a bunch of stuff from the collections. Let’s begin with Essence.

Essence released three Disney Classics Silky Eyeshadow Palettes; Bambi 01 Friends Til the End, Dumbo 02 Make A Splash, and Patch 03 Dognapped!. My favourite so far is the Bambi one, which contains some really pretty green shades. I was pretty disappointed in the Dumbo one, but I used a few shades from Patch one today, and I quite liked those.

The other three products I picked up from the Essence collection are the Disney Classics Maxi Blush Highlighters in Bambi 01 Nature, Dumbo 02 Peanuts, and Patch 03 Thunderbolt. Once again the Bambi one is my favourite so far, but I haven’t tried the Patch one yet. Let’s move on to Catrice.

Catrice also had three palettes. These are called the Disney Classics Multi-Effect Eyeshadow Palettes, and they came in Marie 010 Je Suis Marie, Lady 020 True Love, and Miss Bunny 030 Flirtatious. My favourite so far is the Miss Bunny one, but I did quite like the Lady one as well.

I also picked up the Catrice Disney Classics Maxi Matt Face & Body Bronzers. There were only two of these in the collection; Marie 010 Ladylike and Lady 020 Be Brave. How adorable is the packaging!

The last two products I purchased from the Catrice collection were the Disney Classics Marie Satin Coconut Lipstick in 010 Pink Bow, and the Catrice Disney Classics Lady Satin Coconut Lipstick in 020 Romance. This is actually such a nice creamy lipstick formula, and they have nice pigmentation too. I’m not a fan of coconut scents, but thankfully the scent on these lipsticks is not overpowering.

All in all, I like this Disney Classics collab collection from Essence and Catrice better than their Disney Princess collab collection.

Collective haul (April)

It’s finally time for my collective haul from April. This haul consists of one clothing item and then the rest is accessories and make-up.

The one clothing item in this haul is this cute floral dress from H&M. I loved these kinds of smock dresses when I was younger, so I got a bit nostalgic when I saw this one and decided to pick it up.

Then I purchased some things from Asos. The two headbands are both by Asos Design, and the earrings are from Madein.

The two most exciting things I purchased from Asos though are the e.l.f. Cosmetics Halo Glow setting powder and the e.l.f Cosmetics Blemish Fighting Putty primer. I’d been wanting to try both of these products for a while, and as it turns out, I love both products.

The last products in this haul are all purchased from Beauty Bay. I was really intrigued by the Midnight and the Earthy palettes when they launched, so in April I purchased both 42 colour palettes as a set/duo at a really good price. I’m especially fond of the Midnight palette, as you might have noticed from recent make-up looks.

I also purchased the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer 2 palette on sale. I actually like this colour story more than I thought I would.

I also purchased another Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Liner. This one is in the shade Warm Taupe, and it’s such a great shade.
