Collective drugstore haul: Essence, Maybelline, e.l.f. and more

DSC_7261

It’s time for another collective drugstore haul. I recently did a ‘first impressions’ post on the Essence G’Day Sydney eyeshadow palette, and I liked it so much that I bought the other two palettes in the series; Hello New York and Salut Paris. The Hello New York palette contains purple, blue, and grey shades, and the Salut Paris palette contains grey, pink, and mauve shades. I also bought the other shade of the Essence Matte Touch blushers (20 Berry Me Up!). A couple of products I had heard about and wanted to try out are the Maybelline City Bronzer (shade: 100 Light Cold) and the L’Oréal Infallible More Than Concealer (322 Ivory). I haven’t tried the concealer yet, but so far I really like the bronzer. The lipliner is from NYX, and it’s in the shade Prune. I’m always looking for new purple lipliners. Lastly, I purchased a few back-ups of some of my go-to products; the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation and the e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder. I also purchased a new e.l.f. Complexion brush which is my favourite bronzer brush. My old one was falling apart, so I really needed a new one.

Tiny Asos haul

A little while ago I ordered a few pieces from Asos that I thought I would share with you.

Blå denim overalls - Monki

I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of loose-fitted denim overalls for a long time, and I think I finally found them in these ones from Monki. They definitely give off carpenter vibes, but I’m all about that. My next post will be an outfit featuring these overalls.

Hvide og sorte zebra print jeans - Asos

I’d had these zebra print jeans saved on Asos for quite a while, and they were on sale, so I had to have them. I love the fit, and I love the print, and I can’t wait to style them in a bunch of different ways.

Lastly, I purchased two golden bracelets. I don’t wear gold jewellery very often, but I needed a couple of bracelets for when I do, and I think both of these are really pretty.

5 favourites – March

The first month of spring will be over by tomorrow, and even though we’ve had a few sunny days in Denmark this past week, I’m still longing for more consistent spring weather. Anyhow, I feel that my appearance has been more springlike, since I’m very into bright colours at the moment (both in clothes and make-up), and that will show through a couple of my favourites from the month of March.

Regnbuestribet dynejakke - Daisy Street

Rainbow stripe puffer jacket: It’s still too cold to wear a light jacket, but at least this puffer jacket feels a bit springlike with the rainbow stripes.

Juvia’s Place The Magic Mini eyeshadow palette: I’m obsessed with this eyeshadow palette! The quality and pigmentation of these eyeshadows are incredible, and the colours are beautiful. If you like colourful eyeshadows this palette is a must have.

Essence Satin Touch blush

Essence Satin Touch blush (shade: 20 Satin Love): I’ve had this blusher for a couple of years now, and I can’t believe that I’ve never featured it in a 5 favourites post. It’s one of my absolute favourite blushers; the nude colour goes with any make-up look, the pigmentation is great, and the satin finish is gorgeous. And it’s extremely affordable!

The Shine Brush by Wet Brush: When I got my hair cut earlier this month, I purchased the original Wet Brush plus the Shine Brush. I’ve loved both of them, but especially the Shine Brush which is perfect for dry hair. If you like me are hard on the your hair when you brush it, try out this brush. It prevents you from damaging your hair from brushing it too hard.

Rugsted & Kreutzfeldt (band): I love listening to a lot of different music, and I have a soft spot for older music. For the past couple of months (but especially the past month), I’ve been listening to this Danish duo who made great music from the late ’70s to the mid ’80s (the have reunited since, but I’ve been listening to their first three records) on repeat. The song above was the first song I ever listened to by Rugsted & Kreutzfeldt, and I’ve been listening to it for years and years. It’s one of my favourites, but to be honest most of their songs are my favourites.

Collective MAC haul

I recently purchased a few products from MAC, and I thought I would share them with you.

DSC_7191

First of all, I’ve bought two limited edition lipsticks. The one in the red packaging is from the Lunar New Year collection, and it’s in the classic shade Ruby Woo (retro matte finish) which I for some reason didn’t own until now. The other lipstick is from MAC’s most recent collection called Boom Boom Bloom, and it’s a limited edition shade called Framboise Moi (matte finish). I also purchased a single eyeshadow in the shade Lime, because I’m obsessed with all shades of green eyeshadow at the moment, and I missed a matte lime green in my eyeshadow collection.

I also got the limited edition cherry blossom Fix+ from the Boom Boom Bloom collection, because just look at it! And then I decided to buy a full size of the Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating base in the shade Radiant Yellow. I have a sample size of this primer and I love it. It gives your skin such a beautiful natural glow.

Mixed Zalando haul

A little while ago I purchased a mix of things from Zalando, and I’m finally getting around to share them with you.

Gul og blå ternet slip kjole m. sorte blonder og slids - Even&Odd

I bought this slip dress in a Clueless-ish print from Even&Odd. I don’t usually go for this type of dress, but I thought it would be fun to style.

Brun og cremefarvet argyle cropped sweater - PULL&BEARHvid T-shirt m. Fantasia Mickey Mouse - PULL&BEAR

I purchased to pieces from PULL&BEAR, which is a brand I haven’t tried before. When you live in a country that has cold weather most of the year, you can never have to many jumpers, and I really liked this argyle one. And you might have noticed that I have a serious weakness for everything Disney, which explains why I got the Mickey Mouse T-shirt.

Hvid Jaws T-shirt - New Look

I’ve been wanting a Jaws T-shirt for so long, and when I saw this one from New Look, I didn’t hesitate to buy it. I love Jaws if you haven’t guessed.

Sort fake læder baker boy hat - TopshopSort faux fur taske med tortoise shell hank - TopshopHvide 'flettede' pumps - Topshop

Lastly, I bought a hat, a bag, and a pair of shoes from Topshop, which are some of the things Topshop does best in my opinion. These are all items I’d had in my saved items for quite a while, and when I saw that they were all on sale, I finally purchased them. I’m so excited to style these items.

Collective drugstore haul: Essence, Wet n Wild, Revolution and more

DSC_7089DSC_7088

I’ve been buying a few drugstore products here and there lately, so I thought I would do a collective drugstore haul. I’ve heard such good things about the Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation and the Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage concealer, so I thought I would try those out. I’ll been doing first impressions posts on both products. I bought the Maybelline Face Studio Pore Minimizing primer hoping it would be a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional primer. I did a comparison of the two, which I’ll do a post on very soon. As you might have noticed, I don’t ususally fill in my brows, but I thought I would give the e.l.f. Brow Pencil a try. This doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m going to fill in my brows on a daily basis, I just wanted to try it out. Lastly, I’ve purchased three products from Essence. I really like a lot of Essence products, so I’m excited to try these out. I bought the Essence Matt Touch blush (shade: 10 Peach Me Up!), the Essence Camoflage+ Matt concealer (shade: 10 Light Rose), and then I was very intrigued by three new eyeshadow palettes. I loved the colour scheme of all three of them, but I decided to try out one first, and if I like it, I might get the other ones. The palette I chose is called G’Day Sydney, and it’s a neutral palette with some pops of green. I’ve tested out an Essence eyeshadow palette before, which I wasn’t impressed by (check out my first impressions here), but the shades in this palette swatched beautifully, so I’m excited to see if they’re any better.

Huge second hand haul: accessories

Here’s the second part of my second hand haul; the accessories.

Rød hat - second handMørkegrå beret - second hand

I’ve bought two hats. I think the red wide brim hat is so pretty, and even though I don’t wear wide brim hats that often, I couldn’t leave this one behind. I also bought another beret. This one is in a dark grey colour.

Sort, hvid og brun Roma print tørklæde - second handOrange, brun, hvid, rød og grønt tørklæde m. tigerprint og blomster - second hand

I’ve added a few more scarfs to my collection as well. The first one has buildings or sites from Rome on it, and the second one is in a tiger print with flowers on top. They are both really pretty, and I’m excited to wear these.

Rødt smalt bælte - second handLyserødt bælte m. sølv og guld spænde - second hand

Lastly, I’ve bought two belts. The red one is made of real leather, and it had never been worn. The pink one is just really pretty; I love the mix of gold and silver on the buckle.
