May/June Haul

posted in: BEAUTY, HAIR, MAKEUP, SKINCARE | 13

I have been loving my new purchases over May and June, so of course it is time for a haul post!!

P1110194

Essie Bikini So Teeny (RRP $16.95)

Because my Priceline doesn’t stock Essie, I always make a bee-line to a display to see if they have the ever-coveted Bikini So Teeny (it’s ALWAYS sold out when I look for it!) and this time they had it! Hallelujah! I love the periwinkle blue colour, and it is such a beautiful, creamy colour. It does need two coats but I am not complaining!

Brite Organix Hair Colour in Blue (RRP $9.99)

I was really craving a blue dip dye on my hair, and when it’s so easy to pick up Brite Organix hair dye from Woolworths, of course I got it! Like the others in this line, I was highly satisfied with this product, and it’s vegan to boot!! Let me know if you would like a post on dying hair crazy colours and how I get it just right!

Philosophy Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser* (RRP $30 240mL)

I’ve been using this cleanser every morning for the past couple of weeks and it is amazing! It’s so creamy and nourishing, without the fear of breaking out! This combined with Hope in a Jar has me pretty chuffed with Philosophy!

P1110169

Philosophy Hope in a Jar Moisturiser* (RRP $45 60mL)

I mentioned this moisturiser in my Winter Essentials – Skincare post, and it really has won my heart. Apparently the scent is unpleasant to some, but I am loving it! It’s a little like putting a crème soufflé on your face.

P1110197

Chapstick Tin ‘All Things Sweet’

I found this cute as tin at a pharmacy and saw Pomegranate Gumdrop flavor. YES PLEASE. It also contains a classic Strawberry and Cake Batter which smells just like what it says it is. I’ve been taking good care of my lips this Winter, and these three are playing a big part in that!

P1110183

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Sloane’s Plum* and Notting Hill Nude (RRP $13.95)

As you all know, I love me a good plum lipstick (see my Top 5 here), and nude lipsticks are perfect for Winter and Summer alike (see my Top 3 here). These two are the perfect addition to my collection and I have been wearing both of them to death!

P1110179

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Rockin’ Curves (RRP $15.95)

I recently reviewed this one so make sure you check it out here!

P1110186

Revlon Nearly Naked Powder Foundation in Light (RRP $29.95)

I have never really been an advocate for powder foundation, having never really used it, so I thought it was high time I pick one up. And there is no safer bet for choosing your favorite brand and line of foundation in powder form! Review to come on this one!

P1110187-1024x684

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream in Light (Oily Skin) (RRP $15.95)

This has been a long time coming in my collection, ever since those little sachets were circulating the beauty subscription boxes. I loved the scent, but the medium colour was far too dark. This has pretty great coverage for a BB cream, and also has the added benefit of combating spots with Salicylic Acid! Review to come on this one too!

NYX Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait 

“Well well well,” I hear you say. “The girl who supposedly doesn’t like lipgloss is suddenly loving them?” Yes. I am. I admit full responsibility for my actions. This NYX Butter Gloss has me swooning over collecting the rest of them. I love the sheer quality, it can be worn on it’s own or with a lipstick, and it smells/tastes like a bit of heaven. I am NOT SORRY. 🙂

What have you been hauling lately?

    You picked up some great stuff!! I tried the Philosophy Hope in a Jar in store on my hand and I can’t get over the texture, it was like velvet?!! I also need to try the NYX Butter Glosses! I’m not a gloss gal either but THE HYPE IS CRAY~

      So cray! I really want to get my hands on each one, it’s madness! And I agree about Hope in a Jar! It really is just like velvet on the skin 🙂

  • Christine

    I love Philosophy products, especially their shower gels and their ‘hands of hope’ hand cream. Also not a lip gloss fan but keep hearing bloggers rave about the Nyx ones…

    • Kate Flint

      I always sniff the Philosophy Shower Gels, they smell so amazing! Please try out the Nyx Butter Glosses, it is different to any lipgloss I’ve tried. Not as sticky, pretty nice colour pay off and just amazing in general!

  • Laura

  • Love the color of that nail polish. Also, those chapstick flavors sound awesome! Pomegranate is one of my favorites.
