I may have done another bit of beauty shopping, but I had to take advantage of Beauty Bays huge sale! www.beautybay.com. If you haven’t already please do have a look at my huge Tarte Cosmetics Haul that has also gone live – here -.
The first product I picked up is the Dose of Colours Desi & Katy Velvet Liquid Lipstick in the shade A Mauve Story, £15.00 – here – I’d been looking at these for a while and never took the plunge as I’ve never actually tried Dose of Colours, the packaging really sold me on this one in all honesty. I love the sleek nude packaging with the rose gold lid.
If you don’t follow me on Twitter (@LipsLashesLife) you won’t have seen my meltdown over loosing my Ofra highlighter in Glazed Donut, which I’ve still not found so R.I.P to that gem. Today, I have however picked up a mini highlighter£10 – here – I chose Rodeo Drive as I always hear so many good things about it and the fact that it’s available as a mini saves me a tonne of space in my overflowing highlight drawer. It’d also make a great stocking filler!
Jouer Cosmetics are a mid-range brand I would say, they aren’t cheap but they aren’t crazy prices, I picked up the Limited Edition Long Wear Lip Topper in Funfetti which was £13.50, – here -. ‘Funfetti Lip Topper can be worn alone or with your favourite lip colour to instantly refresh and complete your look. Infused with coconut oil, the weightless formula glides effortlessly over the lips for a holographic, opal pink finish‘. I have got another lip topper and love it, you cannot fault the pigmentation and intensity and it is such a non-sticky formula, I do feel that I will get more use out of this particular shade in comparison to my other which is why I had to pick it up.
After seeing really good reviews on them, I decided to grab the Revolution Glitter Paste in the shade Power Hungry which is a really nice gold shade. This was only £4, which is an incredible price if the product works well, it is available – here -. This is a cruelty-free product and claims to ‘Achieve instant sparkle with Revolution Glitter Paste. Featuring a unique gel formula and in-built primer that dries down to a matte finish, this glitter allows for effortless application on the face or body.’ I can’t wait to test it on a few looks and lew you know how I feel!
Onto another eye product, I decided to pick up one of the mini Zoeva palettes, I really loved the look of the Voyager palettes and the mini version is basically the six shades that caught my eye from the bigger palette so it’s perfect! It cost just £12 and for reference the larger palettes are typically £18 but some collections are more, for example the Queens Guard palette was £24 at the time of it’s release. As this one is all mattes I could 100% see me taking it on holidays, etc… and I already know I adore Zoeva’s palettes as well as their brushes! You can find the palette – here -.
To finish off the eye products and the haul I picked up both the Lunar Beauty Life’s A Drag palette, which I told myself I didn’t need but I caved! Also in the sale it was £18.50 down from £37, so now really was the time to buy it. I actually really like the colours in the palette, it’s great to create a nice neutral look for day-to-day but it also has those pops of colour for more glam and artistic looks – it kind of caters to all. Available – here -.
Finally, I grabbed some Ardell lashes, I actually got the Duralash Starter Kit as I love doing my own individual lashes so thought I would give it ago. The kit is available – here – and retails for £8.00. You get tweezers, lash adhesive, lash remover and a range of individual lashes, which I think is incredible for the price.
That is everything for my Beauty Bay haul, after this and my Tarte Haul (here) I have definitely stocked up my makeup collection for a little while! Have you tried any of these products before?
See you again soon with another post!
