This haul came out of the fact that I needed a lot of stuff and had some extra money for once. I had a long laundry list of things I needed to buy to update and fill in the holes in my makeup collection. Enjoy!
I was on the hunt for a foundation that really matched, that felt good, looked good and had awesome coverage. I did some research and came up with L’Oreal True Match Foundation in N2. It is my favorite foundation I’ve had by far!
I also needed a skin care revamp. My current regimen of random stuff I found in my cabinet was certainly not working and it was time to get serious. I chose the basic Clean & Clear essentials foaming cleanser for sensitive skin and the deep cleaning toner. I am loving both of them right now!
My lips are always dry and flaking. That does not look cute when you are wearing a cute lipstick. I bought the e.l.f. lip exfoliator to eliminate the problem with little to no effort. This scrub is in a lipstick tube obviously and it’s basically a stick of sugar!
In the summer, I am always searching for a concealer that will stay on all day through water and all. I have been looking at the NYX waterproof concealer. It’s a bit hard to blend but I’m willing to keep my concealer on at the beach!
No matter what color I paint my nails, it always stains them. I really needed a base coat that protected my nails from terrible staining. The Wet n Wild Protecting Base Coat is doing exactly what I need it to do. It is clear even though it looks purple in the bottle, it’s not I promise.
My 30 second top coat is almost out because I share it and we use it at least once or twice a week so it is reaching its last day. I found a replacement with the Sally Hansen Quik-Dri Top Coat. It works almost as good if not better than my other one and it’s fantastic!
I was looking for a cheap eyebrow pencil that was light enough so I picked up the e.l.f. Brightening eye liner in coffee, hoping to use it as an eyebrow pencil but although the pencil looked very light, it was actually more of a coffee shade *go figure Sofia*. It’s too dark for my eye brows but maybe it will be good for a waterline pencil.
I love a moisturizing shave cream and I love eos so why not put them together? I remember when I was younger I would use my sisters eos shave cream because it smelled so good but I just got a travel size for mornings when I need to shave without getting in the shower. This one is scented pomegranate raspberry which just smells amazing!
Since my sister stole my Aloe Vera gel after I repeatedly took it out of her suitcase and returned it to my bedroom, she repeatedly took it back. I bought a replacement because I recently got floor burn (yet again) from sliding on the floor. It helped heal my knees fast and now only a week or two later they are completely healed.
I hope you enjoyed this beauty haul a lot because these are some of my favorite posts to write about but they also take nearly the longest! xoxo, Sofia
P.S. I am extremely sorry for not posting for so long. I was busy doing makeup for a musical. Would you like to see pictures?
