Jubilant July Hauls

It's July!!! Time to start a new thread for all the amazing July hauls from you guys! Please post all your hauls, big or small, beauty or non-beauty...can't wait to see them all!!

 

To start us off - here is a tiny sample haul from Dr. Hauschka Smiley Happy

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Sorry to hear the SiJCP you visited was less than stellar. :/

Hope you filled out a survey!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

I always get reluctant to ask for samples because I only walk in to buy ONE thing every time... And I feel like the employees always give me too little in a sample because I'm Asian and Asians are known for bargaining and "scamming" others.  

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Today I got some henna (which i'm going to put in my hair in a few minutes, yayyy. Love my monthly henna sessions.) and I stopped by Target for a few things.

 

OPI's strawberry margarita polish has been on my to-buy list for awhile (i'll be honest, I only wanted it for the name), and I needed shampoo.

 

Physicians Formula is buy 1 get 1 free at Target, so I picked up two items i've been wanting. The darker shades I wanted were sold out, but since I mostly wanted them for the design, I got them anyways.

 

and the Sonia Kashuk bronzer (goddess) was finally in stock again, and that palette was on sale for 9.99. It's actually nicely pigmented (excuse the terrible swatches) so I might go back for one or two of the other ones.

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

What does the Sonia Kashuk bronzer look like? I always stare at it when I walk through her section at Target hahha

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

I've wanted it since I saw someone I follow on IG with it. Here's a swatch of it. 

In the second pic I swatched Becca pressed shimmering skin perfecter in Topaz right above it, as a comparison. Topaz is golder compared to SK, so i'd describe it as very bronzy, but not TOO bronzy.

I was thinking it would have to just be a highlighter, but I think it would be nice lightly applied to cheeks.

 

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Ooo, it looks very pretty! How do you like Topaz? Is that the liquid or pressed version?

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Pressed Smiley Happy
It's pretty, but VERY gold (even for me) and it's very easy to accidentally use too much. I find it hard to use on a regular day, but it's great for days that I want to be all glammed up!
It COULD be an everyday highlihter, but it would have to be very very very lightly applied.

 

That being said I do really like it Smiley Happy and I want to try the liquid version.

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

It does look super gold! I think it would look incredible on very dark skintones (but I bet it looks great on you too!). Btw, Rose Gold should be in stock sometime next week, if you were thinking of getting it! I know I am Smiley Wink

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

*adds it back to my wishlist* I've still been debating but I might as well just get it. 

thanks for telling me Smiley Tongue

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

It looks really pretty! But it might be too shimmery for me. I'll give it a try though 

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

This bronzer is super shimmery on the top layer and after you use it it seems to be less shimmery bronze underneath, I have a used one at home I'll have to take a picture of to show you...

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Okay, I meant to stop buying but my Benefit Brow specialist at Ulta saved me a bag.  I had to buy one item to get it, because the brow service counted as the other item.  I have been deleting my emails, so I did not even know about the bag.  I tried and hated the They're Real liner.  This remover took it right off my face though, so I decided I needed it.

 

 

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

  

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

You will love the remover.  

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Are you ready to have your head explode?  Because here it is: the most perfect blush in the world.  Ultra-luxurious, long discontinued, completely perfect in every way, it's Tom Ford Narcissist, courtesy of the INCREDIBLE @rikkie!!!!

 

 

 

More pictures, you say?  But of course!

 

 

And here's a swatch trio to compare it with my other bright pink blushes (from left to right Estee Lauder Fearless, Tom Ford Narcissist, Clinique Berry Pop):

 

 

I have a bunch of stuff on its way as well, so this will be a picture heavy month for me!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

So gorgeous Smiley Happy! The TF imprint gets me every time lol. Though, Berry Pop looks almost identical on my monitor. Do they look the same applied?

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

I only have my phone to take pictures, so I apologize for any color warping.  They do not look the same applied - the TF is more luminous with a gorgeous creamy shimmer.  It's not sparkly but it definitely has a glow.  It's also brighter and perhaps a touch warmer than the Clinique, which has a satin finish and is perhaps a touch more brownish/dull.  It's wrong to say that it's dull because it IS a bright pink, but it doesn't pop like the TF which has a brightness that is noticeable and beautiful even when sheered out.

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Thanks so much emmaclaire! That's exactly what I needed to hear about these blushes Smiley Wink. I need to jump on the TF bandwagon - I've had Love Lust on my wish list for MONTHS now!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Drool... Lucky lady... How you find that? I just bought Flush and Cocoa Mirage. I like them so far. I still wish them a bit cheaper but oh well I'm getting older so probably good to have less but high quality stuffs Smiley Wink

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

A lovely friend located it for me because she is made of magic and amazingness.  It is a tough price tag at first, I agree, but I have to say that the quality more than makes up for the higher price!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

That is a super beautiful haul.  It is so awesome to find gems like this long after they've stopped selling them and even more awesome to find friends who care enough to help you find said gems.  I thought the middle one was the prettiest before I knew it was the Tom Ford one, so I am loving it.  

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Thank you!  I'm obsessed with it, it's the most beautiful blush ever and I'm beside myself with joy that it's actually in my possession.  And I agree, beauty unicorn finding friends are the best!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Gorgeous. I didn't know this color was hard to find.

 

I just got TF Wicked and love how luscious and richly pigmented TF blush is!

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Wow. That Tom Ford blush is really pretty! How would you say it compares to Nars Desire? (or does it?)

Re: Jubilant July Hauls

Thank you!  I actually don't have NARS Desire so I can't say personally, but I found some swatches from other beauty bloggers online that I'll post for you!  From the pictures I think the first thing I notice is that NARS Desire seems to be completely matte, whereas Tom Ford definitely has a glow and shimmer (which I now see didn't really come out in my pictures, sorry!)
