Mini Beauty Haul – Drugstore (Rimmel London, Maybelline, Essence)

Hey my Pannies today it’s all about drugstore makeup. Last week Etos had a 1+1 sale for Rimmel London and this week Kruidvat has a 1+1 offer for Maybelline. Well of course I couldn’t resist these offers so I picked up some products!!


This is all I picked up during those offers! Bronzer, powder, BB cream, Black gel eyeliner, 3 lacquers, mascara and two crayons of the Rita Ora collection which I didn’t even knew when I purchased this. Also as you guys can see I put my lacquers in this cute little thin. You can also get this thin by purchasing something from Rimmel at the Kruidvat. This occasion is because Rimmel London is celebrating its 180 years existence. Also it comes with the scandal eyes mascara. I’m totally living it because it also has a mirror!
 
The rocket mascara and the essence powder I’ve used before, nothing new, nothing special, I just like to use these. BUT there’s something I’m not so happy about. I totally luvv Essence it’s affordable and they do deliver. The day after I purchased this product I was bumped out because I luvv this powder, it totally covers the shine (my skin type: oily/combo skin) but it just totally fell apart after I dipped my brush in it. I never had this before and this is the 3 time I purchased this so I don’t know what to do know. Should I purchase a new one?
 
I wanted to try out some new stuff and Kruidvat had a 1+1 offer so I purchased a new BB cream and I was highly in need of a new bronzer. The bronzer I used almost everyday before purchasing this is one of the ELF studio baked bronzer I totally luvved the colour and it’s not as pigmented as I’d like it to be but you can build it up. Well as we are still on the topic of bronzers I started to use the Rimmel bronzer and I’m happy with it so far. The only thing is that it’s very powdery so you do need to shake of the acces product. 
last but not least, the eyeliner. Way back then when the interests of makeup started catching my eye I did try to apply gel eyeliner but I was SOSO bad, the lined and shape OMG. Now that I’ve used makeup for several years I just wanted to see if I am still that bad as back then. Well I’ve used this gel eyeliner now a couple of times and let me tell you I’m liking it, it’s all on the wrists. Totally got skilled, this eyeliner is also very pigmented and it’s in the colour BLACK! Why didn’t I discovered this earlier…?? lol, JK I do like it though and I am recommending it to you guys, try it out.
So here are the two Rimmel London Colour Rush lip crayons I picked up and some swatches. When I purchased these I didn’t even knew these were part of the Rita Ora collection but I’m totally luving it. The 220 Rumour Has It is more like a burgundy colour but once on your lips it’s quit of a chique red and the 600 On Fire is more of a soft red/orange colour. Totally living it and it’s SOSO pigmented. Also I like crayons more because lipstick is such a fuss to apply, these you can just quickly apply and it’s done, perfect.
 
I also picked up these 3 Rimmel London Apocalips lacquers because I just luvv them. I already had the colour 501 STELLAR and I just wanted to try out some other colours because this is so easy to apply, so pigmented and totally living the colours as you can see in the swatches. From left to right: 303 APOCALIPTIC, 304 ECLIPSE, 402 Across The Universe.

November Beauty Haul: Ici Paris, Etos, Kruidvat, The Bodyshop

Hey my Pannies so it’s Sunday today, are you guys having a lazy one or a productive Sunday? Well it’s obvious that I’m having quit a lazy Sunday except for the couple of hours I’ve planned for my hw…:P

Today it’s a haul blog post again. OMG I’m so exited because I’ve been collecting the beauty products for a while now and I really want to use them but I just HAD to blog this so I waited till (almost) the end of the month. It’s not a huge haul but I’m really exited to try out these products. Enough rambling, need to tick to the topic!!

So here are the beauty products I’ve bought this month. Look further to see where I got it from, the price and product information.
 
First of all I bought these 2 Bourjois primers and also the foundation of the new their  latest line ”Happy Light”. I bought these at Ici Paris in Amsterdam which they had a huge sale, 1+1, I mean what more can you ask for… 
 
Happy Light Foundation ~ Luminous & flawless complexion in ANY LIGHT (translucent Pigments) and is originally €15,- [Colour will be posted later on]
Green Primer~ Matte Serum Version  &  Red Primer ~ Luminous Serum Version and is originally €12/13,-
 
As the Bourjois products were 1+1 I also bought this Color Boost which I freakinggg luvv!! I’ve been using this for 3 days straight. Not only does this has SPF 15 in it but it’s SOSO moisturizing guys, OMG. It’s not as pigmented as lipstick, it gives you actually more of a shine but it’s so pretty though. It says it stays on for 10 hours and is waterproof but for me personally it’s not the case at all though, especially when I eat, drink etc.
 

 

Product: Bourjois Colour Boost in ”03 Orange Punch” and this is originally €10,- [Might be picking up the other 2 colours]
 
If you’ve read my last post you know that I went to the Grazie beauty bloggers masterclass and BE was part of the event. I saw lots of makeup over there which involved this very pretty BE lipstick colour. I needed to pick this colour up so right after the BBMC I went to Ici Paris to pick it up.
 
This is the ”016 Crazy”, dark colours are totally fashionable, don’t be afraid just try it out. I was also not into dark colours but because it’s so trendy this winter and I tried the Rimmel Kate one #17 and now I’m totally obsessed with these colour ranges. The price is very affordable, €13,-.
 
Here I have 3 Miss Sporty lipsticks and 1 Essence lipstick. I totally luvv the Essence packaging, it looks so chic because it has a matt packaging, luvving the renewal! These are all affordable drugstore lipsticks so if you want to try it out go and check it out. [REMINDER!!] Essence is only available ar Kruidvat and Miss Sporty is only available at Etos. The products are not moisturizing at all and comes of easily but they are very pigmented that’s what I luvv about these lipsticks. Off course you can’t compare it to MAC products or so but for very affordable drugstore makeup it’s just oke. 
 
As you can see in the last image you can see the product number and name so I won’t get into that. The ”Essence” lipsticks are €2,39 and the ”Miss sporty” lipsticks are €2,49.
 
Here I have a new mascara. It gives volume and as it says big eyes, very interested to try this. I also want to try out the manga one but it’s always sold out when I go to the stores…=S
Ow and BTW it has two sides, one is particularly for the bodem lashes and the other side for the upper lashes of course.
 
Maybelline Volum Express Big Eyes. I bought this at Kruidvat and it was on sale for €10,- but normally it’s €15,99.
 
Here we have the Elizabeth Arden Moisturizer. I could not find any specific information or reviews on this but the reason I bought this was because it normally was €30/35,- and it was in the sale for €10,- at Kruidvat so I need to try that out.
 
Here we have the shea butter of the body shop. A couple of weeks ago the body shop had a VIP night  and they offered 20% discount so I really wanted to go to the body shop so I just went that night. This shea butter smells so good and because winter is coming up I NEED THIS!!
 
This is the ”Shea Body Butter” which smells AMAZING!! I can”t even describe the scent you NEED to smell it for yourself. Also it’s so smooth and soft… OMG. You guys should try it at the counter because I actually did because mine is still all pretty and untouched, lol. Well the shea butter costs €16,- for 200 ml.
 
Here I have a radiance of the body shop which is perfect for the holidays coming up. Not only do I luvv the packaging but I also luvv it because it has glitter in it, I mean who doesn’t luvv glitter. I’m totally going to use this during the holiday.
 
This is the ”Brush on Radiance” and is €18,50 (50% off o your second product now).
 
 
I hope you guys like this haul and off course I hope you will pick some of these stuff up if you like it. And as you noticed I did not do any swatches just because it would be too much but you guys can test these out on the stores. If you guys do want swatches in my haul post comment below then I will keep the hauls shorter and with less products as well. If you guys think this is good, share this post and hashtag #YLWorld so I can see you everywhere.
 
Much luuvess, Lynn W. xo
