The title is a short, (but not really) way of saying ‘A Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty Haul’. I am a little late with this, as I bought all of this way before the black Friday sales, but I’ve not got around to publishing until now.
Let’s get into the haul!
Too Faced | Gingerbread Spice Palette
First of all how adorable is this palette? The packaging is cute and the shade range is beautiful. I will admit that it’s not the most groundbreaking palette shade wise, but it seems extremely wearable which is the main thing. Too Faced shadows have not let me down so far, so I’m expecting the quality to be there too. There is a slight scent to this too, that is supposed to be reminiscent of freshly baked gingerbread.
Too Faced | The Sweet Smell of Christmas
I love the Too Faced Melted liquid lipsticks, but I haven’t tried the matte formula before. What better place to start than the Christmas minis? Each one is inspired by a different aspect of the festive season. In this gift set, you get four shades: Pumpkin Spice, Hot Buttered Rum, Sugar Cookie and Cinnamon Bear. These liquid lipsticks are fused with avocado oil, vitamin E.
Caudalie | Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet
I’ve had my eye on this for a while, and it was firmly on my wish list. I picked this up as my moisturiser had run out and I needed something else. I’ve used it a few times, and I don’t think it’s hydrating enough for me. It’s probably just because it’s getting cold and my skin can’t take it. I think it’d be great for Spring/ Summer and it’s more of a morning moisturiser than an evening one.
The Inkey List | Vitamin C Serum
I know a lot of people swear by having Vitamin C in their skincare routine, so I knew I wanted to try it too. After looking around I come across this Serum on Cult Beauty, and at £7.99 I gave it a go. I’ve used it a few times and I’m really not sure how I feel. This can cause a tingle, but I’ve not had a problem with that as to yet. I have had the problem of it turning my hand orange, which probably isn’t that much of a problem, but as someone who doesn’t fake tan to have tan hands is a little odd.
Mario Badescu | Skin Renewal Complex
First things first is that this pot is a lot smaller than I thought it would be, especially for £19.50. This can be used as a day or night cream and like the Caudalie sorbet, it’s not as hydrating as I’d like. It’s also got a smell that’s similar to plasticine, which obviously isn’t the best. I do like that this is also supposed to repair the skin and improve skin tone and vitality. I’ve not tried this enough to give my full opinion.
Laura Geller | Filter First Foundation
I saw someone review this foundation. (I’m sorry I can’t remember who it was) From the review I knew that I needed to give it a try. The review on Beauty Bay also says that it oxidises, so I went for the lightest shade Ivory and that might be something that’s worth noting. This is supposed to be medium to full coverage with a luminous finish.
That is everything I’ve bought recently!
