I love love watching/hearing about hauls. I'm interested in what people got and what they recommend. I went to Sephora today, and went out with an empty wallet. lol. I manly went to get skincare products:
Korres Milk Protein Cleanser
Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening Refining Buff Cleanser
Boscia Bright White Mask
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Reflief
Givenchy Mister Mat
Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment
Fresh Face Polish
What did you all get recently?
YES! I've tried soo many primers, I love primers. Especially ones that keeps me oil free. I have Benefit's Porefessional, Mister Mat, Becca Primer, and Cover FX. These are some primers you can look into for controling oils. Mister Mat is one of the best oil controling primer I've used, but lately I've been grabbing my Cover FX primer as well. If you can go in stores get a sample of both and compare! I really love both of them.
Thanks for your reply dear,
have you every tried smashbox the light version? I like that one it works ok, smooth, but dont control oil that well. I really want to try the mister mat now thanks for your recommendation.
No problem! I did try the Smashbox Light verison, I still the same sample bottle in storage somewhere..with that being said, that primer isn't for controling oils or mattifying the face. Its more for a smoother canvas. I do like how it smooths everything out but if you are looking toward mattifying, then I would go with Givenchy or any of the others I mentioned.
Smashbox's Light is better for oily skin in the sense that it's light weight and doesn't add more oil to skin, but it's not geared toward mattifying or oil control, just keeping skin from feeling heavier.
Highlight of the haul...100pts lipstick perk. Givenchy La Rouge in 103 Brun. Such Fancy little package! A sturdy matte black cardboard box with little wrapping papers around the lipstick!
(Edit: lol, the duracell is for size comparison)
I was afraid it's going to be too brown, but it's light and pink enough to look good on me. Dusty rose is about right.
LOL at first I thought the Duracell was part of your haul and I was thinking "why did she photograph a battery??". Awesome lippie, hope you like it better than those ooooooollldddd brown ones you (hopefully) threw out!
Lol, of course Sephora would sell a single battery. =P
The actual haul was a moisturizer for mom. Yes, I did throw out those 2 brown lipsticks. Fortunately this one is lighter and pinker so it looks more natural than...if I smeared eyeshadows on my lips. I can actually see myself wearing it out (and I'm not a lipstick gal)
WOW I am just drooling over everyone's hauls!! I did a mini drugstore haul yesterday, which will seem like nothing compared to y'alls but here goes anyway:
1. flower beauty about face foundation
2. flower beauty kiss stick luxury lip color, camelia charm
3. rimmel london scandal eyes show off mascara, extreme black (this has the same type of brush benefit theyre real has)
4. rimmel london match perfection foundation, ivory (I forgot to mention this with my last haul)
Decided I needed to celebrate last week because I accomplished something I've been working on for 3 years! I may have celebrated slightly too much... but I haven't bought anything since November, does that make it better? I might need a 12-step program, ladies.
Ulta was store #1! Went in to get their Tarte Maracuja Oil, which I might marry I love so much. The huge bottles were on sale for $25, so now I'm stocked up for an entire year at least...
two Revlon Lip Butters (Tutti Fruitti and Sugar Plum)
two Revlon Nail Polish (Whimsical and Girly)
Zoya Pixidust Nail Polish in Godiva
three Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows (Bronze Have More Fun, Always and Bridesmaid, No Pressure)
Benefit Oxygen Wow Foundation (Ivory)
Then ordered some Sephora:
Tarte Blush (Natural Beauty), and a kit with maracuja oil, finishing powder, maracuja concealer and a brush.
Benefit Eyeshadow (Nude Swings)
NARS Sin & Sheer Matte Foundation (Siberia)
Clinique Superblend Foundation (Breeze)
Too Faced Candlelight
100 pt samples of Givency La Rogue (Brun) and Stila Convertible Color (Peony)
Samples: YSL Touche Eclat, Ralph Lauren Romance and Carol's Daughter Hair Milk, Stila Waterproof Mascara and Lip Glaze (Delicate, Logan-Berry), Tarte Maracuja Oil, Mascara and Lash Primer.
The Shiseido skincare I found at TJ Maxx (Anti-Shine Lotion and Warming Scrub)
And finally... went to The Body Shop because I was running out of a ton of my skin care items:
Vitamin C Microdermabrasion
Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream & Moisture Serum
Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask
Tea Tree Toner, Pore Minimizer, Mask, & Blemish Fade Night Lotion
Peppermint Smoothing Pumice Foot Scrub
Honey & Oat 3-in-1 Scrub Mask
I absolutely love the Tea Tree line... been using it for two years now and it has completely changed my skin. My acne has decreased dramatically. I did discover a few months ago that it was slightly drying out my skin, and have since added the Vitamin E line and Tarte's Maracuja Oil into my skincare regimen and I'm loving the results!
