Beauty Haul: What’s On My Beauty Desk?

“Home is where the make-up stash is”

I love shopping. I don’t care if it’s window shopping, online shopping or simply going into a store to browse around and make a mental list of all the items I should start saving for. Unfortunately, I am a student. And I do not own my own car, which not only makes it difficult for me to move around but also limits my time when I do go shopping, just because I have to work on someone else’s time schedule. Another downside to not having my own car is that I cannot have a part-time job which requires me to work during the week. I’ve mentioned before on my blog that I am a product promoter, so I stand in store and market products to shoppers in the hopes that they will buy it and make my company look good. I only work this job on weekends and this job is not permanent which means that only when a promotional product becomes available, I will be able to work (if I meet the criteria of the company).

Now imagine my excitement when I realized I had enough birthday money put away in a fixed account and enough to leave in my personal and splurge on myself? Yes please. I went to Clicks and Dischem (for any of my followers outside of South Africa, these are drugstore make-up stores with a pharmacy and other retail items, equivalent to a Walgreens) this weekend and picked up a few things to add to my collection.

 Eylure London Lashfix Strip Lash Adhesive (Dries Clear):

I didn’t go into Clicks with the intention of purchasing this, but I do own many pairs of false lashes which often don’t come with adhesive. Not only that but I can’t stand the tiny bottle that comes in the packaging of most lashes as I find them very difficult to work with. I almost always misplace my lash glue and I can’t stand the pre-glued lashes. This seems like a good investment and I noticed that there are also many variants including some that dry black. I chose the clear due to the fact that it’s my personal preference.

My lash addiction is the bane of my mother’s existence. I only have a few boxes, yet she can’t stand when I come home with more of them. How could I not pick these babies up? I love how wispy and dramatic these lashes are and they do not look heavy which really ticks my boxes. I think what I love most, and what caught my eye was the featherlight feel. I wear glasses and often find that my eyes get really sore and irritated if I wear heavy lashes. These are re-usable so I will have no problem using them again and there is a mini adhesive in the box.

I don’t have a lash addiction… I just love lashes! Picked up my holy grail lashes from Eyelure. This is a brand I swear by and I love these particular lashes because they add length and look fairly natural. I think there’s something about how natural these look on me that keeps me coming back for more every single time.

L.A Girl Pro Conceal in Natural

For those of you who watch my YouTube channel tutorials, you would know that for a long time I had been using the L.A Girl Pro Conceal in Creamy Beige. I felt that the shade was too close to my skin colour so I went a shade lighter and picked up this baby from Dischem. For some reason I’ve never seen L.A girl in Clicks. I wanted to try a few other products from L.A girl but I was on a time crunch so I didn’t have the time to swatch and browse.

Essence Long-Lasting Lipstick (25)

I never used to like lipsticks when I was younger and to this day I still find myself wiping it off before I eat. I saw this colour while browsing the Essence Cosmetics section at Clicks and I fell in love. I received a gorgeous package from Essence with never-before-seen products and I’m going to film a tutorial with this bright pink lipstick tomorrow!

Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation (303 True Nude)

IMG_6353

 

I desperately needed a new foundation as my Yardley London Stayfast became really watery and I couldn’t use it anymore. There was nobody in store who could colour match me so a little hack that I found was that if you have a particular foundation already, pick it up and compare it to the other shades in store. Boom, instant colour match with no testing needed. I hope this shade is correct but I won’t be too phased if it isn’t because I’ve been dying to pick up The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 19 – Mini Make-Up Haul

Hello and no I refuse to say “It’s me” because if I hear that joke once more I will probably lose my mind.

I’m coming to you today with my MINI cosmetic haul. Emphasis on mini because I am a student and your girl is just so damn broke. I only start working this weekend, which I am grateful for but I only get paid in 3 months time which means I’m even more broke than I should be.

I forgot to insert 2 products I purchased (Don’t you just hate that).

I’ll start with the products not featured above:

Design Compact Powder in the shade “Mahogany”: I purchased this powder as I really want to start contouring and highlighting. It’s a pressed powder which is extremely delicate on my skin and does not cake or come out relatively obvious. I purchased it from Edgars.

Design Clear Gloss in the flavour Melon: Who doesn’t love a sweet smelling gloss? Loved it, but it’s sticky so definitely not for dates ladies. This was also purchased from Edgars.

From Top To Bottom:

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes In Black/Noir: I absolutely hated using the winged liner before because I felt I had no control and it always looked messy. Ladies, let me tell you that this Scandal Eyes pen is perfect for precision and won’t smudge at all. Loved how easy it is to use and that the tip/applicator is almost like a koki pen which doesn’t move all over the place like a paintbrush type applicator would. LOVE IT.

Essence Cosmetics Eyeshadow Blending Brush: Today I had to make the hardest decision I’ve ever made when it comes to brushes. The powder brush or the blender? As you can clearly see I went with the beautiful lilac blender which has the softest bristles and is the perfect size for blending, definitely going back for another one due to the fact that you can’t have just one blending brush, especially when doing more complicated make-up looks.

Katy Perry Cool Kitty Lashes from Eyelure: I broke into these bad boys last month already but just felt they were a little too much for a beginner like me. I have seen some lashes I’m dying to try in the store so stay tuned, there might just be a lash haul in the near future!

Essence Cosmetics Eyeshadow in the shade “Snowflake”: Yes, this would be a great colour to wake me up if I placed it in the corner of my eye but I’m really feeling this colour for a highlighter! The consistency was so smooth and pigmented I really would like to try this out as a highlighter.

The last product would be my Essence cosmetics brow pencil in 02 Brown which you can find in my January Faves over here

Well, that’s about it from me. I know I was supposed to upload part 2 of my terrible break up and how I got through it but that will have to wait.

What’s your fave beauty product at the moment?
