March Shopping Haul

Believe me when I say I wanted this post up a week ago and I’m highly disappointed that it wasn’t. I normally tend to have a new post up every Wednesday and I was hoping all of my stuff was gonna be here by then but no. I settled for posting this on Friday (03/31/17) with the hopes my packages would come in on time but the last few items didn’t come in the mail until that same Friday later in the day. Of course at that point I just decided to wait and upload it on my normal posting day on the upcoming Wednesday (and unfortunately life keeps getting in the way so now it’s posted on Friday ugh). I did happen to post a picture on instagram though and say my posts would be pushed back a week, but regardless sorry for posting so darn late. I’m honestly so upset by it. 

I have been very much excited for this blog post though and I wanted to do a little extra with it. I wasn’t able to do everything I wanted for it but maybe I will with a blog post in the future. Moving on to the fun part!

Purchases for the month:

  • Olay Hydrating Gel Moisturizer
  • Elcie Pearl Radiance Primer
  • Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation
  • Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
  • Too Faced Sweet Peach Blush
  • Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in “Pillowtalk”
  • Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Liquid Lipsticks in “Charm” & “Harmony”
  • Blooms Daily 2017 Planner & Classic Sticker Sheets
  • JetPens Gel Pens
  • Zoella Beauty Mirror Compact
  • Zoella Beauty Wonderhand Moisturising Hand Cream
  • Zoella Beauty Lace Collar Purse
  • Luxie Rose Gold 520 Face Brush
  • Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm

Olay Moisturizer. This is a repurchase for me and I really like it. I find that a gel consistency is more beneficial for my oily skin – plus it feels amazing and hydrating on the skin. I also love the smell. Comment some good recommendations – could use more gel moisturizers!

Elcie Primer. Basically I needed a new primer. This one is oil-free (which is highly needed), hydrating, water-based, and lightweight. Steadily becoming my favorite primer.

Cover FX Foundation. Not gonna lie, I saw this in Jaclyn Hill’s first impression video a little while back and I bought it as soon as the video ended. It looked flawless on her. For me, I really enjoy the coverage – I’d recommend it.

Collection Concealer. I actually didn’t buy this but I wanted to mention it. I’m obsessed with London and the UK – even though I’ve never been. And where can you find this concealer in stores? In the United Kingdom. The most lovely lady, Denise, was SO kind enough to buy and send it to me after I had already proposed to buy it myself. I will forever be grateful for it.

Too Faced Blush. The most beautiful blush I’ve ever had and it smells like peaches – I love peaches. If you don’t have this, please try it out for yourself. Gives a perfect color to the cheeks and it’s perfect for spring/summer.

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick. Limited edition lipstick to match the iconic “pillowtalk” lip liner and it’s another gorgeous nude that I added to my collection. 

CSC_0357 (2)CSC_0403 (2)

Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits. Her new velvet formula is actually really comfortable on the lips and also pretty longer-wearing as well. Charm is my favorite – I’ve worn it maybe 2-4 times now on different outings. I’ve tried on Harmony once and it didn’t appeal to me right away so I took it off. However, I will test it out again to give it a fair shot!

Bloom Planner and Stickers. I love being organized and long story short, I’m in love with these planners. I know a lot of people are familiar with the “Happy Planners” but I swear I love these more. The designs are amazing and the stickers are the cutest things I’ve ever seen. Stay tuned for a review and special surprise coming soon!

Gel Pens. My handwriting tends to be very different when I write with a pen compared to a pencil. Needless to say, the pencil always looks 20x better. I wanted gel pens hoping the consistency might be better – as of right now, it’s okay. Gel pen ink is hard to deal with because in the middle of writing the ink stops showing up. Super aggravating – I already bought a different set of writing utensils to make up for it LOL!

Zoella Compact. I really wanted a new mirror compact and this was like killing two birds with one stone. It has a little pocket on the other side to hold your ID, license, etc. The mirror itself is a really nice size as well! BIG essential.

CSC_0421CSC_0419

Zoella Hand Cream. Another essential that has quickly become a favorite. Your hands will thank you in the long run – perfect for those more drying days outside.

CSC_0411

Zoella Beauty Bag. It’s adorable for one and I just really wanted something else to pop into my handbag. I use this to carry my lanolips and hand cream! Perfect size!

CSC_0413CSC_0412

Luxie Brush. I use this for setting my face with powder and it’s amazing. It picks up the right amount of powder and it’s not too big nor too small. You could even throw it in your makeup bag if you wanted for touch-ups on the go!

CSC_0356 (2)

Lanolips. Last but certainly not least, especially because it’s another favorite! You can use it for extremely dry lips, skin patches, cuticles, and more. I personally like it because I get these weird little patches, I guess you could say, around each side of my nose from sinuses and this is SO helpful! Try it out!

  2. Love the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. I’m a huge fan of her lipsticks (Carina’a Love) is my favourite. The Zoella lace collar bag is cute too! Great buys!

    • I honestly love them. I’ll be putting up a full review soon but basically the daily planners are super affordable and pretty small so easy to carry around. You have different pages as well – year in review, a place where it has all the “holidays”, to-do list pages, a place to take notes, addresses , then you have a monthly spreads as well as weekly spreads! Hope you get one!

      • They definitely are! I prefer the smaller daily planner – their are also extra pages where you can write goals and stuff like that, as well as a front & back pocket. The ultimate planner which is a little more expensive has like sketching pages and stuff that the daily planner doesn’t. Which I doesn’t particularly mind because I don’t draw but I suppose they could be used for other things as well! I recommend pre-ordering some of the stickers too! They’re the best and super cute! They came out with the new holiday sheets a couple weeks ago and I’ve already pre-ordered mine!

    • These were the pens I was talking about when I said I had already ordered a different set to make up for it! I was going to get these to begin with but couldn’t find the set I wanted so I settled for the gel pens! So happy with these flair pens though! They’re completely my favorite now too xoxo

  3. This was one big purchase. 😀 I really want to try it out Kylie lip kits. With other brands I’m not familiar with I didn’t see it in my country, but I hope that soon I’ll be able to try out them as well 🙂

  4. I love so many of these products already! Zoella Beauty is one of my favorite brands for luscious bath stuff. As for things I haven’t tried yet, I really want to snag one of the Kylie Jenner lip kits. I’ve never had one but they seem incredible!

  5. These are some great products! I use a Bloom planner too, and I love it. They’re cute and simple, but they still have everything I need haha. 🙂 I totally want to try that Cover FX Foundation and Too Faced Blush! Thank you for sharing! ❤

  6. I love Zoella! I wish her products were easier to get to in the US. I know you can order it online, but that makes it harder to get…which means more self control. Who wants that? 😉

  7. I REALLY have been wanting to try a Kylie lip kit but have been trying to not buy into all the hype. I do have this Smashbox insta-matte clear gloss you can put over any lipstick to matte it out and that has been amazing!

  8. I have been dying to get my hands on that foundation but I cant get it easily in the us. Can you lead me in the right direction with shades? I also love that gel pens and drug store moisturizer is on your list. You sound like my spirit animal. xoxo

    • Can’t get it in the US? Have you tried Sephora?? I think you’ll be able too. And as far as your shade, what’s your skin tone? I got N10 but I think even still that’s tad bit too dark for me but mostly because I’m rather very fair skinned. & awh thank you, glad you liked everything!

  9. Those all sound like some awesome products! I’ve been wanting to try products from charlotte tilbury but I just can’t get past the price point. I didn’t buy too many products in the month of March but I did make a purchase from colourpop! I bought a few of the nectar collection and loved them.
