Makeup makes me happy, which is why I have so much of it, and why I spend my time and money purchasing new bits. After last month’s huge haul, I didn’t think I would have so much to share in terms of new makeup in May, but I ended up selling my iPod and spending the money from that on more beauty bits, because of course I did. Here’s everything in pictures. If you want to see me haul them on camera, you can watch that here!
From the W7 Beauty Outlet, which is a shop that sells W7 makeup alongside discounted brands of makeup, haircare, bodycare and perfume, I picked up a few blushes and a mascara, . I tested out the mascara and the honeycomb blush in my Full Face of First Impressions video if you’d like to see how they did!
Olivia Hale is a brand new makeup brand to Home Bargains and it launched with an offer – every product was 99p! I picked up three matte blushes, a blush brick, a bronzer, a sponge and a blush brush. The blushes swatch beautifully but I am yet to test them on my face. The sponge is identical to the Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge!
New Look’s beauty range had a 3 for 2 offer on, as well as a stock clearance sale on lipsticks, so I picked up a brow pencil, illuminating primer, foundation, two matte lipsticks, a lip crayon and a moisturising lipstick. I loved the lipsticks but the foundation doesn’t really work well for my skin.
I treated myself to a few bits from Beauty Bay! I picked out three Morphe brushes (my first ever Morphe brushes!), the Morphe 35N palette, two LA Girl concealers and the BH Cosmetics Neutrals palette. If you’d like a review or tutorial with any of these, let me know.
From Superdrug I bought a Makeup Revolution cream contour kit, a powder contour kit and matte lipkit which meant I got a free Revoholic Cheek palette. I also got a foundation stick by Miss Sporty, the MUA Hydro Primer, an MUA brow pomade, an MUA lipstick, the Makeup Revolution Epic Day palette (see a review here), the Nip+Fab Sculpted eyeshadow palette (see a review here), Maybelline’s Eraser Eye Brightener, and Lottie London face gems, Rusts palette and Arch Rival brow pencil. I also got some skincare: the Vitamin E serum and hydrating mist.
From Boots I got my first Real Techniques sponges and Natural Collection’s powder and blush. I also received the NARS Laguna bronzer as a gift! The brushes are from eBay and I love the Zoeva-esque ones.
Finally, from Primark I got a non-latex sponge (and two mini ones), two silisponges, a lipliner, a bronzing brick, a glitter lip topper, a colour-changing lipstick and an aerosol fixing spray. Can you tell I’m collecting makeup for a third Testing Primark Makeup video?
That’s it for this month’s haul! I have already ordered some things from Superdrug ready for next month because I have a bit of an addiction. Let me know if you want to see more of any of the products mentioned in today’s post!
