Recently I went a little crazy at Sephora, so I decided to write a post showing and reviewing my new purchase haul! The haul contains mostly of cosmetics, but there are some hair and fragrance products as well! Most of these products are from brands that I already have been loving, but I decided to try some new ones as well! I will link each product as well! So let’s get right into this!
There are three products that I do not have close up pictures of: an Anastasia Beverly Hills brow definer, Too Faced “Better than Sex” mascara, and Tarte’s “Tarteist” eyeliner. These are some of my all time favorite eye products!! The ABH brow definer is the best brow product that I have ever used. I have been using it in the shade Auburn, but in this purchase I decided to try the shade Taupe due to me phasing from being a redhead to a blonde. This is such a great shade! The Too Faced mascara is definitely the best that I have ever used! It gives both great volume and length. It has been so hard for me to find a mascara that can do both for me, but Too Faced was able to provide that! As for the Tarte eyeliner, what I love about this is that there is the pencil on one end, and a felt tip on the other. This makes doing winged liner such a breeze!
The first two lip products that I want to talk about are both Anastasia Beverly Hills. I have been loving her liquid lipsticks and lip glosses, and when they released some new shades not too long ago, I just had to try this one! The liquid lipstick is shown on the top in the picture with the lipgloss right beneath it. Both of these are in the shade Rio. This is such a fun color to wear, especially right now in the spring, almost summer weather. The lipstick (the left swatch on my hand) dries to a very smooth matte. It looks a little glossy in the picture due to the lighting, but when I have it on my lips, once it dries I cannot even tell that I have anything on. The gloss is the right swatch on my hand, and is a very pigmented gloss. It stays on so well, and is so creamy! Bonus, it smells like cake! If you are looking for a new liquid lip or gloss, and love high pigment, I definitely recommend Anastasia Beverly Hills!
This is the third lip product that I got in my haul: Bite Beauty lipstick in the shade Gin Fizz! I absolutely love this lipstick. I previously owned this lipstick in a nude and very light pink shade. I wanted to try a more neutral, every day pink so I decided on this one. One of the things that I love about that this brand is that it stays on your lips so well. I put this on and don’t have to reapply for hours, if it all. This one smells like a fruity candy!
There are three face products that I got in the haul. On the right hand side of the picture is the Bare Mineral’s Ready Foundation, and this is one of my staple face products! It is the best face powder that I have ever used, and will never use a different one. This is in the shade Fairly Light. I deal with acne and oily skin, and was always afraid of using just powder due to the redness that I have; this powder, however, provides the best full coverage. Despite the full coverage, it still manages to feel lightweight and allows your skin to breathe. The mineral powder is also very beneficial for your skin. I decided to try out the Kat Von D Lock It foundation for the first time, and let me tell you that I am blown away by the long lasting coverage it provides! Two pumps of this and it is stuck on my face for the whole day. The shade I got this in is Light 46. This is quickly becoming one of my ride or die products! The last face product I purchased was the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer. I have been hearing Jaclyn Hill rave about this concealer so I thought that it was time for me to finally try it out! It is very light and creamy, and actually provides a lightness to my skin (which is hard to do considering my very fair skin). I got the shade Fair Neutral.
I have been dying to try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kits, and finally got the Glow Kit in Gleam! I have not tried these on my face yet, but I swatched them on my arm. The swatches from top to bottom are Crushed Pearl, Starburst, Mimosa, and then Hard Candy. Hard Candy is difficult to see on my arm because it seems to be very similar to my own skin tone, with a shimmer to it. I think this is going to be really good for when I just want to do a subtle highlight. So far, Starburst and Crushed Pearl are my favorite from this palette. Can’t wait to try these out on my face!
I got another highlighter, the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in the shade Pink Quartz. I would definitely consider this more of a bronze-ish pink, but I do think that the lighting does it seem a little more brown than what it really is. I think this is a great color to wear for the summer!
Now for the last two products! On the left is the Verb Sea Spray. I have not used this product yet, but got it because of Jaclyn Hill’s recommendation. I was currently using Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray (which is what Jaclyn said she used to use too), so when she said that she likes this one better, I had to order it! On the right is, of course, the perfume Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I have been wanting this perfume for so long, but was holding off on getting it because of the price. But I decided to treat myself to this for graduating college, and finally got it! Of course it is a floral fragrance, but it is also such a happy smell, if that makes sense. This is definitely becoming my favorite fragrance to wear this summer.
I hope you guys enjoyed! Please let me know in the comments what products you love so that I can try them out! 🙂
