Just as promised today’s post is a haul of all the make up items I purchased while in London. To some people it might look like I got a ton of stuff but I’d been saving up a bit and used some of my Christmas money to buy these things. Since moving to the Netherlands for my BA degree I unfortunately have to miss out on most of the brands included in this haul as they are either not available in the Netherlands or very hard to find, so obviously I had to take this chance to finally be able to buy some of their products again, right? I think that’s a totally valid point! Anyway… let’s get into what I bought.
Revlon Lip Butters
One of the first things I bought were these 2 lip butters in the shades Sugar Plum and Candy Apple. I love the Revlon lip butters and can’t get enough of them and since they were on a 2 for 10 offer I needed to add two more to my collection.
Revlon Highlighting Palette in 030 Bronze Glow
When I spotted this it straight away reminded me of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer bricks (which I totally love), so I wanted to give it a go. This seems like a pretty versatile palette, which you can probably use as a blush, highlight and even as eyeshadows. The shades look gorgeous, so I can’t wait to give this a proper go. However, as much as I like Revlon products, after hearing about the nasty racist comments Revlon’s CEO apparently made, I don’t think I’ll be getting any more Revlon products for a while.
Make Up Revolution Redemption Palette Essential Mattes
After becoming totally obsessed with the Make Up Revolution Flawless Palette I really wanted to get another one. I have a bit of a thing for shimmery eyeshadows and definitely am lacking in the matte eyeshadow department, so I figured getting the matte essentials palette would be a good thing. I’ve used it a few times now and so far I’m loving it. You can never go wrong with some matte basic eyeshadows after all. Am I right?
Make Up Revolution Vivivd Baked Bronzer
I don’t own a lot of bronzers and I don’t own a single baked one. This bronzer just looked gorgeous and it was only 4 pounds. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory why I got this!
I heart Make Up Bronzer & Highlighter Hearts
I already own the peach blush from this heart shaped cheek products collection and I absolutely adore it. The pigmentation is on point and the packaging is the cutest. The main reason I got these probably is the packaging but they just look so pretty and I just hope that they will be just as great the blush I already own
I Heart Make Up I Heart Definition Palette
I have a few bronzer and highlighting palettes made for contouring but I don’t have own that includes a blush as well. This little palette is put together especially for fair skin (which I have without a doubt) and it’s super handy for traveling. I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this one.
Sleek Blush By 3 in Lace
Not too long ago I reviewed or more like raved about my Blush By 3 palette in Pink Lemonade and I said that once I’d go back to the UK I would need to get more of these. Well, I did. Though I didn’t get the one I originally wanted. Actually I wanted this palette that included dark berry and red shades but I accidentally grabbed the wrong one, so you can probably imagine my surprise when I opened it up in the hotel room for the first time and saw 3 bright oranges. I have a few peach blushes but not a single one that is this orange and I have no idea whether these will even suit me (probably not) but I guess I’ll just play around with it a bit and see if I can put them to use. I have to admit though these colors look a bit scary in the pan. They are so freaking bright.
Sleek Highlighting Platte
I read a review about this one a few weeks ago and thought this palette looked absolutely stunning. In reality it looks even prettier and I’m so excited to have this. It might be one of my favorite things I bought while in London.
Kate Moss in 107 Lipstick
I feel like just about every beauty blogger out there has this and it took me 4 trips to the UK to finally get my hands on it. Every single time I went into a Boots or Superdrug it was always sold out and when I finally saw it this time I grabbed it right away. It’s just such a gorgeous perfect red shade.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
This is hands down one of my favorite concealers, so every time I travel to England I stock up on this as I can’t get it over here. I’ve actually bought 3 of these but one is already in use and looks crappy already.
Tom Ford Lipsticks in Indian Rose & Flynn
Tom Ford lipsticks are the one thing I’ve been wanting for months now but never felt brave enough to splurge on. Over here they are a whooping 47€! I mean, what even? Still they are incredibly gorgeous and I just wanted one so badly. Since I was in London and I had some money from my budget, of how much I wanted to spend, left I finally gave in and bought one regular Tom Ford lipstick in the shade Indian Rose and one of the Lips & Boys collection in the shade Flynn. Both are just stunning! I decided to go with more neutral shades as I think I’ll definitely get more ouse out of those and if I do spend a little fortune on a lipstick I want it to be one I know will actually be worth it.
This now concludes my not so little haul. I hope you enjoyed reading this. If there is any particular item you would like to see a review on or used in a make up tutorial be sure to let me know.
Thanks so much for reading!
