After no beauty hauls in ages I, now, have a second one to share with you! I had some money I paid out a while ago, towards Azii’s Christmas present, and I got half of it back the other day so I thought (seeing as I had already spent the money months ago) why not have a wee spend.
I did two orders, one from Feel Unique and one from Superdrug – From Feel Unique I wanted to pick up some Nyx bits, as they’re new to the site, and from Superdrug I went for Revlon (and added in the L.A.B.² item because it was 3 for 2).
I am absolutely in love with the Nyx Butter Glosses
and I’ve wanted the new-ish shade ‘Angel Food Cake’ for ages, now, even before it was available in the UK. I even looked at getting it ordered from the US but I’m rather pleased that I waited as I was able to get it from Feel Unique, along with the other two, at £5 each.
As well as ‘Angel Food Cake’ I picked up another new (for me) shade, and a replacement shade because I have misplaced my previous favourite.
From left to right we have ‘Tiramisu’ (which is the old favourite that I lost), ‘Vanilla Cream Pie’ and ‘Angel Food Cake’. I’m not going to swatch them, in this post, as I’m going to do a big swatch post for my whole collection.
And here’s what I picked up from Superdrug. The Revlon bits are a Super Lustrous lipstick (£7.99) in ‘Pink n the Afternoon’
and the Colour Stay foundation (£12.99) in the shade 110 Ivory
. Seeing as I got a third item, for free, I picked this fluffy looking blending brush from L.A.B.²
(£6.99), I’m always trying to find the perfect, high street, blending brush.
I’ve tried the Revlon Colourstay once, so far, and it didn’t sit perfectly on my skin (but I think that’s because it’s SO dry during pregnancy) but I’ve not tried the other two. That said I’ve sat and stroked the brush (as we brush addicts too) and it feels lovely and soft, and well made, it’s not as soft and fluffy as my Mac 217 but it’s probably the closest I’ve found yet (other than eBay purchases from US brands).
I wanted to get a Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick because I got one in my Glossybox last month, in the shade Black Cherry, which I loved but isn’t really an every day shade. Which is why I went for ‘Pink in the Afternoon’ as it’s much more wearable.
As you can see it’s a lovely rosy, slightly dusky, pink and it’s just absolutely beautiful. I’m looking forward to wearing it, probably when I next do my makeup.
So that’s my wee haul. The Nyx gloss in ‘Angel Food Cake’ is now my joint favourite with ‘Tiramisu’ and I’m looking forward to playing with everything else too.
