Asos haul – shoes, accessories, and make-up

It’s time for another Asos haul. This haul is a mix of shoes, accessories, and make-up.

I’ve purchased two pairs of Converse. These ones are the Chuck Taylor Lift Sunshine sneakers, and I just love the colours. They’re so perfect for ’70s inspired looks.

The other pair that I got are the Run Star Hike pride sneakers. I’ve been wanting a pair of Run Star Hike sneakers, and this rainbow version seemed perfect. They’re so fun and comfortable.

Let’s move on to accessories. I picked up these gold coloured bracelets from Asos’ own brand, because I always seem to miss gold coloured bracelets in my jewellery collection. I’ve worn all of these, and I really like them.

These are the rest of the accessories – all from Asos own brand. My favourites are the lime earrings and the dinosaur key ring (which I’ve been using as a bag charm).

For make-up I’ve got two I Heart Revolution x Disney collections to share with you. The first one is the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books palette, heart highlighter, and lipgloss in Ariel/The Little Mermaid.

The palette looks like and opens like a book, and on the left side you get three blushers and three highlighters, and on the right side you get 18 eyeshadows.

And here’s a closer look at the heart highlighter; so pretty.

The second I Heart Revolution x Disney collection that I got is the The Aristocats Marie collection. I picked up the eyeshadow palette and two highlighters.

This is what the palette looks like on the inside. It’s so cute with the little paw prints in the matte eyeshadows.

The two highlighters are called Duchess (a light gold) and Beloved (a light pink). They’re both very pretty. There will be more Disney make-up in upcoming hauls:)

Lyko haul (mid May)

I recently posted a small Lyko sale haul, but today I have a bigger Lyko haul to share with you. This haul consists mainly of Essence and Catrice products, but those are the two brands that I mainly buy from Lyko. Let’s start with Essence.

I purchased four products from the Essence The Glowin’ Golds collection. I got the two caring shimmer lip oils in 01 Heart Of Gold and 02 Golden Magic, the Vitamin C baked highlighter in 1 Golden Days Ahead, and the Vitamin E baked luminous bronzer in 01 Live Life Golden!.

Here’s a closer look at the bronzer and highlighter. Even though the highlighter looks dark, I can still make it work on my fair skin.

These are the other products I picked up from Essence; the Pretty Natural hydrating foundation in 030 Neutral Ivory, the Sanitizer Resistant top coat, and two of the Fruit Kiss Caring lip balms in 02 Cherry Love and 03 Strawberry Kiss.

Moving on to Catrice. I bought a bunch of stuff from their Clean ID line. I decided to get the Pore Perfecting primer, the Glow Prime & Fix spray, the Matt Prime & Fix spray, the Mineral bronzer in 010 Light, and two brushes; the bronzer brush and the highlighter brush.

Here’s a closer look at the bronzer, which I’ve used a few times, and I like it.

From Catrice I also purchased two of the Full Satin lipsticks and two of the Blush Box Glowing Multicolour blushers.

The lipsticks are in the shades 080 Full Of Life and 090 Full Of Adventure, and they’re both very nice.

The blushers are in the shades 010 Dolce Vita and 020 It’s Wine O’Clock, and they’re very pretty mosaic blushers.

Lastly, I picked up three more random items. I’d never heard of the L’Oréal Infaillible Metal Lip Paints before, so I thought I would give them a go. They’re in the shades 305 Cute But Psycho and 306 Lolita. I haven’t tried them yet, but I think they’ll be fun to wear around Christmas time. I also picked up the Make Up Store Dry brush cleaner sponge, which I’ve been using a lot to clean my eye brushes on an everyday basis.

Big collective Beauty Bay haul

It’s time for a big collective Beauty Bay haul. These are products I purchased in late April to mid May.

Let’s start with the BPerfect Manifest Dream Big palette. I think I’d seen this palette on Youtube and thought it was a very interesting and fun colour scheme, so I decided to pick it up. To be honest, I’ve only worn a few times so far, but I really liked the looks I created. I should definitely get some use out of this palette.

I also picked up two more lipsticks from Soda. These are in the shades 006 Your Mood and 008 Pretty Doll, and both shades are beautiful.

Here’s a closer look at the three blushers you see in the first picture. I picked up another Made By Mitchell Blursh liquid blusher. This one is in the shade Posey Rosey. I’d heard good things about the Milani Cheek Kiss cream blush, so I decided to try out the shade 120 Coral Crush, and it’s a lovely cream blusher. And then I picked up something, I’ve been wanting for years. Well, sort of. In the late spring, Too Faced launched the Love Flush Water Colour blushes, which I think is a revamped version of their original Love Flush blushes, which I sadly missed out on.

The first shade I picked up is called No Ordinary Love, and it’s a pretty pale pink shade.

As you can see, I late on decided to pick up another shade of the Too Faced Love Flush Water Colour blushes. I also picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze, which was on sale, and two of the L.A. Girl Pastel Dream auto eyeliners in the shades Sunshine and Lavender.

The second shade I picked up of the Too Faced blushes is called California Love, and it’s a very nice nude colour.

And I’ve already talked about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze in a 5 favourites post, and I’m still obsessed with this product; I’ve been using it almost every day for quite a while now.

Speaking of Anastasia Beverly Hills, I got the craziest deal on this set of two of her most well known eyeshadow palettes; the Modern Renaissance palette and the Soft Glam palette.

Here’s a closer look at the two palettes. Even though they’re both very neutral, which is not my go-to kind of eyeshadow palette, they’re still very pretty, and I really like the ABH eyeshadow formula.

Now, let’s talk BH Cosmetics. The BH Cosmetics eyeshadows are some of my favourites, and I really liked the look of the Do Not Disturb shadow palette. I also liked the look of the BH Cosmetics Say It! shimmer glosses in the shades Do Not Disturb + Low Key Love You.

Here’s a closer look at the inside of the palette and the glosses. So pretty!

Let’s just stay with BH Cosmetics a little longer, because I also picked up the BH Cosmetics Flower Power 5 Piece Face & Eye brush set with bag. I really like BH Cosmetics brushes; they really affordable, but really good.

Last, but not least, I picked up some lip products from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and they were all on sale. I bought the Supreme Gloss in Mannequin, the Velour liquid lipsticks in I’m Royalty and Blue Velvet, the Velour lip liners in Mannequin and Blue Velvet, and the Velvet Trap lipstick in So Jaded.

This is what So Jaded looks like; a beautiful deep forest green.

Small Lyko sale haul

I have a small Lyko sale haul to share with you today.

Let’s start with eyes. I purchased another e.l.f. Bite Size eyeshadow. I kind of want to collect all of them. This one is in the shade Cream & Sugar, and as you can see, it’s a pretty, neutral colour story.

I also got this loose pigment from Sleek MakeUP. It’s in the shade Trippin, which is obviously a dupe for MAC’s Blue Brown pigment.

I also picked up two lipsticks. This first one is the Make Up Store lipstick in Pink Bliss Eden. I have to admit that I mainly bought this lipstick for the pretty packaging, but this colour is really pretty, and I’ve actually worn it quite a bit already.

I don’t think I’ll ever wear this lipstick though. It’s just too pretty. It’s the PÜR Cosmetics Barbie Iconic Lips Signature Semi-Matte lipstick in the shade CEO. I mean, just look at the packaging!

Lastly, I picked up the Catrice Mini HD Liquid Coverage foundation in the shade 002 Porcelain Beige. This product was not on sale, but I really wanted to try this foundation in a lighter shade, so I thought I would get one of the minis.

5 favourites – September

The first month of autumn has come to an end. The weather has definitely started to become more autumnal, and I’m very excited about that. I’m looking forward to another month of autumn with Halloween around the corner, and then it won’t be long before Christmas is here! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know how I feel about Christmas. But anyways, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, and let’s talk about some of my favourite things from the month of September.

Dior Backstage Face & Body powder in 0N Neutral: This product is from one of my August/September hauls. It will still be quite a while before I’ll be posting that haul, but I had to share this powder with you. Dior is obviously a luxury brand, and this is not a cheap powder, but I think it might be worth the more expensive price point, because it’s just stunning on the skin. It has a natural glow to it, which looks beautiful.

MAC Magic Extension mascara: I got a sample of the newest mascara from MAC with an online purchase this past summer, and I will be doing a first impressions post on it at some point. However, as you might have guessed from the fact that I’m featuring it in a favourites post, I really enjoy this mascara. It looks great, I like the brush, and it doesn’t transfer on me, so I’m quite excited about this product.

KAYALI Eau de Parfum Rollerball in MUSK | 12 & VANILLA | 28: I don’t try new perfumes very often, but I’m obsessed with everything vanilla scented, so I thought I would try this rollerball perfume from KAYALI. It’s a dobble-ended rollerball, so it also have a musk perfume, and I absolutely love both scents. And I love the rollerball design; it’s so convenient and travel-friendly.

LEGO Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse: For my birthday in August my boyfriend gave me this LEGO Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse set. It wasn’t on my wishlist, but it was such a great gift. I’ve had such a great time buildning my two favourite mice, and I’m really excited to build the last few pieces that came with the set; a flower bouquet, a guitar, a camera on a tripod, and a book.

The Danish Girl (film): I’ve been wanting to watch this film for years now, and I finally got around to it when I was ill with the flu a couple of weeks ago. It’s such a beautiful and emotional story; in the film and in real life. I think I was extra moved by it being Danish myself. Go watch it if you haven’t already, and be prepared to cry.

Collective Feelunique haul (late April)

It’s time for a collective Feelunique haul. I purchased these products in late April, so I’ve had them for a while, but that also means that I’ve had time to try them out.

Let’s start with some face products. I picked up one the Revlon Skin Lights Prismatic bronzers, another one of the Revlon Skin Lights Prismatic highlighters, and the Maybelline FaceStudio Chrome Extreme Intense Metallic highlighter in 200 Diamond. As you can see, the Maybelline highlighter came broken, so it’s a bit difficult to use, which is why, I haven’t used it much yet.

It’s another story with the Revlon Skin Lights Prismatic bronzer in 110 Sunlit Glow, because I’ve used that bronzer a lot. I really like the shade and finish of this bronzer; it looks beautiful on the skin. It’s one of my favourite products from this haul.

In this Feelunique haul, I featured one of the Revlon Skin Lights Prismatic highlighters, but the shade turned out to be too dark on me (shade 202 Twilight Gleam). So when I saw that the lighter shade 201 Daybreak Glimmer was in stock I decided to pick it up, and this one is the prettiest pale gold highlighter, and it works very well on my fair skin.

Moving on to a few more cheek products and a lip liner. I love NYX lip liners/pencils and the Slim lip pencils are classics. This is the shade Natural, and it’s such a good pinky nude lip liner. The two blushers are the Maybelline Dream Matte Blush Creamy Cheek Tints, which I hadn’t heard of before. I picked up the two shades that were available, 30 Coy Coral and 80 Burgundy Blush, and even though I haven’t played with them that much yet, I really like how my cheeks looked the days I wore them.

The last two cheek products I purchased were the bareMinerals Gen Nude Blonzers. I also decided to get the Urban Decay All Nighter face primer, which I’ve been enjoying a lot, and I also picked up a back-up of my favourite highlighter brush, the Morphe M510 pro round blender brush.

Here’s a better look at the bareMinerals Gen Nude Blonzers. I got the shades Kiss of Pink and Kiss of Copper. I wouldn’t say that these can replace actual bronzer. To me they are just blushers, but that’s not a bad thing, because they are very pretty.

I picked up two more primers as well. These are the NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting primer and the NYX Hydra Touch primer. I’ve only used the Hydra Touch primer once or twice so far, so I haven’t formed a proper opinion on it yet, but I’m really liking the Angel Veil primer. It’s a primer, I’ve been wanting to try for years, and I’m glad that I finally did.

And now on to some base products. I featured the L’Oreal Paris Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear foundation (shade: 015 Porcelain) in my August 5 favourites post, which obviously means that I love this product. And I do. It has quickly become one of my favourite foundations. I also picked up the Beauty Bakerie Flour setting powder in Oat (translucent), which I like as well. The Revlon PhotoReady Candi Antioxidant concealer (shade 010 Vanilla) is not a great shade match, so I probably won’t be keeping it for long.

The last three products in this haul are all back-ups. The Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation in 110 Porcelain and the Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation in 100 Warm Ivory are my two favourite foundations, so I always have back-ups of those. And the Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High mascara has become one of my favourite mascaras, so I needed a back-up of that one too.

Zalando haul – clothes, accessories, beauty

I have a Zalando haul to share with you today. It’s a mix of clothes, accessories, and beauty products. Let’s start with the clothes.

I got three pieces of clothing, and all three pieces are from Monki. I thought the white button up blouse with the floral embroidery was very pretty, and I’ve actually worn it with the lilac wide leg jeans. I wore the denim shorts on my summer holiday in July when the weather was hot.

I purchased two accessories. The green snake print bag is also from Monki, and the white belt is from Tamaris. I hadn’t had a white belt for a while, and I missed having a white belt, so I picked this one up, and I really like it.

And now on to the beauty products. I picked up a The Balm Bronzilla bronzer, two MAC Black Cherry Extra Dimension blushes in the shades Dilly-Dolly and Under My Plum, a L’Oréal Lash Paradise mascara in Moonlight Noir, two Maybelline Colour Sensational Ultimatte lipsticks in the shades More Scarlet + More Rust, and a Maybelline Lifter Gloss in the shade 8 Stone.

Here’s a closer look at the bronzer and blushers. I love the MAC Extra Dimension formula, and these blushers are so stunning. I’m especially obsessed with the light pink shade with a gold shift called Dilly-Dolly.

I also picked up a NYX The Marshmellow primer set including a full size primer, a travel size primer, and a sponge. I love the primer, but I haven’t tried the sponge yet. It sure is cute though.

Collective beauty haul – palettes, cheeks and lips

I have a collective beauty haul to share with you today. It consists of palettes, cheek and lip products. Let’s start with the palettes.

I’ve purchased two more Natasha Denona palettes. I’m probably the most excited about the Zendo palette, which I purchased right when it launched. I’ve actually already featured it in a favourites post, which shows how much I like this palette. I just love the mix of colourful shades and neutrals.

The other ND palette that I purchased in late spring/early summer was the Triochrome palette. This is one of the bigger palettes, and it’s therefore more expensive, but one day I found it 40% off on sale, so I had to pick it up. The colour story is very interesting, and I’m excited to create more looks with it.

The last palette in this haul is the Huda Beauty Brown Obsessions Toffee palette. I really enjoy the Huda Beauty Obsessions palettes, and this is my kind of neutral palette. I love the looks I’ve created with this palette so far.

Now, let’s talk cheeks. I picked up two blushers and one highlighter.

I’ve been loving blusher lately; even more than I already did. So I’ve been trying to add blushers that I didn’t already own to my collection these past few month. That’s why I was attracted to both the KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting blush in Poppy and the Nyx Sweet Cheeks matte creamy powder blush in Red Riot. They’re such fun colours.

Since Becca is going out of business, I thought I would finally pick up the Shimmering Skin Perfector pressed highlighter in Pearl. It was on sale, and I’ve been wanting this highlighter for a long time, so I’m glad that it’s finally a part of my highlighter collection.

Lastly, I picked up three lip products; a sheer lipstick, a metallic lipstick, and a liquid lipstick.

The sheer lipstick is the Fenty Beauty Slip Shine Sheer Shiny lipstick in Makeout Break. It’s such a pretty, comfortable nude lipstick, and the packaging is really pretty too.

The metallic lipstick is the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Singe, which is a metallic red. I got this one on sale, and I think it’ll be great for wearing around Christmas time.

I also picked up another NYX Shine Loud High Pigment Lip Shine. This is in the shade Ambition Statement, and it’s a very pretty terracotta nude.

Natasha Denona haul

I have a Natasha Denona haul to share with you today. Everything is purchased at Feelunique.

Let’s start with the biggest purchase of the haul; the Diamond & Blush palette in 01 Darya Coral. As you can see, my palette is a bit messy. It’s due to the fact that the bottom left shade (the diamond powder) came broken. It was very difficult for me to send the palette back, so I decided to keep it and I got a refund on the broken shade. I tried my best to press it back in to the pan, and now it’s usable. It’s a super pretty face palette, and I really like it, but it’s too bad that I can’t travel with it, and I have to store it flat.

Let’s continue with another face palette. This is the Love Glow Cheek palette, and I’m pretty sure it launched at the same time as the Love palette. It contains four different formulas/textures, and they’re all very pretty.

And now on to the last two face/cheek products in this haul. I purchased the Contour Sculpting Powder in 01 Light and the Super Glow in 1 Fair. Lately, I’ve been slowly getting a bit back in to contouring, and this ND contour powder is great. The Super Glow is a stunning highlighter that I’ve been enjoying as well. It looks a bit dark in the pan, but it’s super bright on the skin.

Last, but not least, I’ve added three more mini palettes to my growing collection. I picked up the Mini Gold, the Mini Glam, and the Mini Star. I’ve created looks with all of these palettes, I think I used every single shade, and I loved how all three looks turned out. Natasha Denona eyeshadows are just incredible.

5 favourites – August

August went by so quickly, if you ask me. I went back to work after a long, relaxing summer holiday, and things are looking a bit more “normal”. I also had a birthday, went to a wedding and a confirmation celebration, so August was eventful indeed. Even though the calendar might say that it is autumn by tomorrow, the Danish weather is actually very nice and summery this week. However, I’m starting to get excited about autumn and colder weather; I want to wear corduroy and knitwear and boots again. Maybe soon I will. But first, let’s talk about some favourites from the month of August.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless primer: For once, I’m featuring a product that I have actually already hauled. As I mentioned in this Lyko haul, I’ve been loving this primer throughout both July and August. I love that it contains SPF 20, and I just like the way it feels and looks on the skin and the way make-up looks on top of it.

L’Oreal Paris Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear foundation (shade: 015 Porcelain): An now on to a product I haven’t hauled yet, but which I’ve been loving so much. I’d heard so many good things about this foundation, and I must say that it really is great. It’s not often that I fall in love with a foundation, but that’s the case with this one.

Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle cream bronzer in Butta Biscuit: I’ve had this cream bronzer since February or March, and I loved it from the very beginning, but my love for it has grown significantly over the past month or so. This is the easiest cream bronzer to use. It almost blends itself. And the shade Butta Bisquit is perfect on me.

Batman – The Dark Night trilogy (films): The only film from the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy I’d watch until a week or two ago was The Dark Night, and I watched it because of Heath Ledger, who is brilliant in it. However, I decided to watch all three films recently, and I really liked them. More than I thought I would. I love the MCU which is more supernatural and fun, but these darker more realistic superhero films were really good as well.

Cruella (film): I’d been waiting for so long for Cruella to become available to all on Disney+, and when it finally did last Friday I watched it right away, and I really enjoyed it. It was not only a Disney film, but also a fashion film, which only made it better. Plus I just love Emma Stone.
