The Beauty Haul

So I know I've been going on and on about not buying more beauty products since I have rent to pay, but recently I got some money back from ShopStyle Collective, the website I use for my affiliate links. I figured since the money basically came from my blog, I might as well spend some of it on the blog!

I made a beeline to the Pixi website first - I've been dying to try some of the new Skintreats line. Plus, they had a 20% off promotion when I looked - score. I picked up the Rose Oil Blend and the Overnight Glow Serum, so keep an eye out for a full review on them in the coming months. So far though, I'm in love. The oil is so luxuriously rich and smells just like roses, and the serum is basically the famous Glow Tonic on steroids.

I also picked up a set of all eleven Tony Moly Sheet Masks (I only shoved three in the picture - all eleven made the photo a little cramped!) for only $10 from Amazon. An amazing deal, seeing as one of these costs $6 or $7 in Sephora. I've used the Avocado one so far and really loved it - I sense a repurchase on the cards.

Next I headed to the Sephora website. I decided against most of the things I mentioned in my Beauty Wishlist a couple weeks ago, just because I really can't justify yet another highlighter. I did pick up the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick though - it was actually in stock for once so I took it as a sign. Now that I've got all the shades I want from the line, I'll be doing a review on them soon.

The other thing that caught my eye on the Sephora website was the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip set. I love these little sets they put together, and they're always such a bargain. For $28 you get a full size NARS Lipstick in Dolce Vita (which is $27 on its own!), a full size Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Whisper ($24 itself), and minis of the Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Milky Way, Marc Jacobs Poutliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil in Prim(rose), and Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Namaste. It's been going in and out of stock frequently, so hopefully it's still available when I write up a review on these next week. The colors are a little paler than I would normally wear, but paired with a darker lip liner (like Prim(rose)), they'll work great.

The last thing I picked up was the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation in Classic Ivory (N2). I've been so intrigued by cushion foundations lately, so I'm excited to test out this drugstore version. I love anything lightweight that's designed to give the skin a glow, so I've got high hopes for this one.

Have you picked up any new beauty bits lately?
