Beauty Haul - MAC, Essie, Kiko And MoreFriday, July 01, 2016
Today I have another beauty haul for you, I have some high end products and some drugstore products so a good mix of both. I bought some products online and a couple of products were gifts but I will as always show you the products I have bought and then leave a link should you wish to try the product for yourself.
Eucerin 3 In 1 Dermato Clean
I first started using the Eucerin 3 in 1 last summer after the lovely people at Look Fantastic kindly sent me over a big box of various Eucerin products to try, I absolutely loved this product and have continued to purchase it since, I do have a full review on my blog where I go into more detail but this is a brilliant product and I use it in a morning as a quick cleanse or to take my makeup off or as a toner, it is a fantastic product and is fragrance, alcohol, paraben and colorant free and is opthalmologically tested and suitable for contact lense wearers too. If you would like to try it, you can pick it up on the Look Fantastic website HERE for £7.20 (was £9.00)
Essie Gel Couture Polish & Top Coat
I'm sure you are already aware I am a huge nail polish geek and love nail polish, I own way too many nail polishes but cannot resist buying new ones, especially when a brand I love launches a new collection. So when I saw Essie had launched their new Gel Couture range I was excited to try them, the Gel Couture range is Essie's take on the gel effect manicure without the use of a lamp, they claim that these polishes look like gel and last for 14 days, there are 30 shades to choose from with 25 shades available in the UK plus the top coat. I chose the shade On The List, a bright coral, no surprise there then, I always go for coral, and I picked up the top coat too, they were on a buy 1 get 1 half price offer too so I couldn't not try them could I? I will as always be writing reviews of all the products featured in my haul so I will be back with a review asap. If you would like to pick up the new Gel Couture polishes from Essie, you can find them on the Superdrug website HERE for £9.99 but currently on a 3 for 2 offer or on the Boots website HERE for £9.99 currently buy 1 get 1 half price.
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
I had a sample of the MAC Studio Sculpt foundation a few weeks ago that my daughter kindly picked up for me and I have a first impressions post if you would like to find out more, the sample was full to the brim so I am still using it but I really liked the foundation so decided I would go for the full size. My eldest daughter Cole went to London at the beginning of June and kindly picked this up for me as a treat. If you would like to try the studio sculpt foundation, you can find the foundation on the Debenhams website HERE for £25.50.
MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil
This was another treat from Cole and she bought it to go with another product in my haul, it is the MAC Pro Longwear lip pencil in the shade High Energy, it's a lovely red lip pencil with an orange undertone to it, it would look lovely with the MAC lipstick in the shade Lady Danger, I love MAC lip pencils, they last forever and are so so good, they also look great worn alone on the lips and last for such a long time. You can find the lip pencil on the Selfridges website HERE for £15.00.
Kiko Double Touch Lipstick
Cole also bought me a lipstick from Kiko when she was in London, she owns the same one and every time she wears it I always comment on how lovely it looks so she kindly picked me one up. It is the Double Touch lipstick in the shade Orange Red, and is a double ended lipstick. I apply number 1, the red side all over the lips to give a matte shade and then add number 2, the clear gloss over the top. Cole absolutely loves hers and bought some more shades whilst in London so I hope I love it as much. You can find the Kiko Double Touch lipstick on the Kiko website HERE for £6.90.
Lastly I have 2 MAC Lipsticks in the shades Sweet Venom (left) and Silly (right) both are matte shades and Sweet Venom is part of the new Blue Nectar collection and Silly is part of the Flamingo Park collection. Both shades are right up my street, I love pink and coral lips over the summer months and I think I'll get a lot of wear out of both these shades. You can find both lipsticks on the MAC website HERE for £15.50.
So those are all the items I picked up recently and the things Cole kindly bought me from her trip to London, I will be reviewing everything on my blog soon, if there are any products you'd like to know my thoughts on sooner than others, please let me know in the comments.
Thank you for reading, much love as always
