Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

@meecherooNice haul! 

 

I have made several trips to Forever 21 lately with my daughter, but totally missed those unicorn earrings - I am not going to show her your post or she'll want to make another trip to pick those earrings up - lol!

 

Good input on the Monistat - I've seen that tip on Youtube and online, but have been pretty skeptical... Smiley Happy

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

Thanks! Yeah, the unicorn earrings are for my friend.  I'm not big on unicorns, but it seems to be a big trend right now, along with the Starbucks Unicorn drink.

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

My Jeffree Star order arrived. I have a bunch of these lip scrubs but this hot cocoa peppermint one smells so delicious. Glad I ordered two Smiley Happy

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

My order from the Kylie Cosmetics sale on 5/5! I got lip kits in Koko K -for me- and True Brown K -for my mom-. And I was surprised to find that they threw in a free lip gloss! It's the shade exposed.

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

@Froley  Wow!  Kylie's shipping is always pretty slow - I just got 2 orders last week that I placed at the end of April... Smiley Sad

 

I am happy they threw in that gloss for you - That was a nice touch!

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

Whoa that's awesome! I just got my shipping notification yesterday so my order won't be here for a bit. Enjoy your goodies Smiley Very Happy

I got a freelance check I forgot I had been waiting for and... kinda blew the whole thing in the space of a week buying more stuff than I have all year so far combined. Whoops. But anyway...

From left to right, more or less:

 

Spoiler

1. Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Cream. This stuff is magic. MAGIC. I've raved about it enough but if anyone is curious, go take a look at my most recent post on the WAYWT thread.


2. Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight. An impulse purchase that was instant love. I've never really liked the highlighter-you-can-see-from-space look on myself, but this is just the perfect subtle glow.


2. Clarins Blue Orchid Oil, enabled repeatedly by @jemly <3 


3. Mario Badescu Cellufirm Drops, enabled by @ShannonAlexis <3

4. Colourpop Ultra Satin lippies in Frick N Frack and Molly

5. Colourpop shadows in Tang, Bill, and Wattles

6. MAC shadows in Quarry (perfect everyday greige) and Club (a really cool brown/green duochrome)

7. Chantecaille Lip Chic in Wild Poppy

@TopazBeth, love your haul, esp. the KA highlighter and CP Wattles eyeshadow. Have you tried Laura Mercier's baked highlighter--it's just as subtle but is more peachy in tone. 

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

I've only ever swatched the LM! It seemed a little more shimmery to me than the KA, but maybe I'll try that next once I use this up!

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

Some great picks @TopazBeth! I love the tiger grass cream in the tube form but heard this is equally great!

My tatcha haul! They gave us the blotting papers since they didn't make the CB bag for this launch. I ended up ordering another lipstick *just in case* this was my HG and got a DS eye cream with each order.

Thoughts:

Spoiler
I'm most impressed by the lipliner so far. MJ was my favorite before but this one is even creamier and smoother than that one. Just glides on and is very pigmented.

The lipstick shade is absolutely perfect for me! Exactly the color I was looking for and great for summer. My lips are naturally dark so lighter colors look awkward on me sometimes. Not this one though, it's super natural and doesn't require upkeep. I could use it every day. The only con for me is it's not as pigmented as I would like. The swatch has 2 layers on and it doesn't show up as much on my lips even if I layer. I'm happy with it overall though, and I love how heavy it feels in my hand Smiley Very Happy

The lip balm I haven't tried yet but it's so pretty! It's in a glass jar, not plastic. Only thing is that it has a 6 month shelf life on the back which seems too short to me. 

 

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

What a lovely haul!  I totally understand buying a backup *just in case! Smiley Happy  @xcicee

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

Thank you @Tamara76!! I don't regret buying a backup in this case at all. I love looking at the new diamond pattern on the new one Cat Embarassed

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

So many Tatcha goodies; nice haul @xcicee

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

That is so pretty! I hope you enjoy it @xcicee

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

 

Thank you both 

@ElleElleG & @CC3616 Smiley Very Happy 

 

 

 I have been using them every day and I really like them I went to sephora yesterday and I think the tatcha lipstick color is very similar to Tom Ford's Pink Dusk.

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

Such a beautiful set🌸🌸😍 @xcicee. Tatcha's packaging is always so luxurious and the lipstick with that pink case is really calling my name. Must resist the urge...Enjoy your new lovelies!

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

Thank you both @oceanics & @Anewxa Heart

 

I saw the beautylookbook put up a bunch of dupes of the lipliner and lipstick if you want to take a look Smiley Very Happy You can definitely find the same color for cheaper.

 

It's pretty pricey if you don't 100% like it so I don't blame you guys! Part of the reason I like the set so much is that the packaging (esp the lipstick) really reminds me of sailor moon Smiley Very Happy

 

I just tried the lip balm and I really like it. Super moisturizing and seemed to plump my lips up. Super light tint and mostly shimmery. I usually use fresh and this is actually priced cheaper since it has .24oz (fresh is .15oz). I'll need to use it more to see which is my fav!

 

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

Beautiful haul @xcicee! Thanks for the swatch/thoughts, I really had to hold myself back on this.. the lip pencil was what I liked the most from the swatches so hopefully I can find a dupe Smiley Happy

Re: MARVELLOUS MAY HAULS!

I have so many boxes to open and go through😐

Coloured Raine, Sephora, ColourPop, & Kylie❤️
