Well, I’ve been hauling again. But this time with justification – a birthday coupon code for 15% off and the launch of a brand new, beautiful collaboration that I couldn’t resist. So here we stand with a couple of new additions to the collection. As is always when I’m planning a haul, my cart was overflowing with things to try – Cult Beauty has so many incredible brands. But I pared it back to the can’t-miss items.
I had a lot of emotions about this new release from Becca – I love Chrissy so I was incredibly excited but the more swatches I saw, the more I came to realise that this palette wasn’t going to be best-suited to my pale skin. I’ve been back and forth over whether I really should spend the money on it but decided in the end that is was worth a shot. As you can see from the swatches, this palette is definitely better suited to more medium to deep skin tones but I’m trying to make it work. I had a quick test yesterday and loved the blush and the highlighters aren’t actually as dark or intense on my skin as they appear below. I’ll have a full report soon, I hope.

Now this one I couldn’t resist – when Becca launched a whole line of bronzers, I was very intrigued. And the Bali Sands shade, the lightest of the lot, was calling my name. We all know I’m always on the hunt for an awesome pale girl bronzer so I couldn’t resist. The shade looks incredibly promising and the formula feels lovely, as far as I can tell from a quick play yesterday so I’m excited to have a new one in the collection.
I’ve been a long time lover of the ABH Brow Wiz. And although lately, I’ve been using a lot of Benefit’s brow products, the Brow Wiz still holds a special place in my collection. But my current one is looking a little worse for wear. The spoolie has completely fallen off and I’m getting down to the very bottom of the pencil. So I thought it was time for a restock. In the past, I’ve used the Taupe shade but decided this time to go for Blonde. A little lighter than Taupe so it’s easier for me to get a natural looking brow. A necessary repurchase, I think.

My last purchase was one that won’t actually be getting used until December. But I already have complete faith that I’ll love it. I’ve been using Pixi’s Glow Tonic for months now and we’re pretty much in a committed relationship now. So when I spotted these travel-friendly versions, I decided I’d grab them and put them away for the end of the year when I head to Europe. A less messy, quick way of keeping the Glow Tonic in my routine even while travelling.
In this order, I also grabbed a sample of BeautyBlender’s Liquid Blender Cleanser & Omorovicza’s Ultramoor Mud Mask. Both of these will probably be going away for while I’m travelling too. The BeautyBlender cleanser container is an awesome size to take with me to keep my BB clean while away.
