Collective Beauty Haul: Urban Decay, NARS, Benefit & More!

Hello lovely!
 
As a shopaholic, purchasing an item or two every time I'm out is only natural. I've been stacking up for a while now but I'm finally ready to show you all what I've been purchasing!
 
I'll spare you my long boring introductions this time, so let's get to it, shall we?
 
These 3 items weren't purchased by me, but I wanted to include them in the haul since I've been wanting them for a long time and they're a very pleasant addition to my collection!
 
 
The Naked Basics Pallete by Urban Decay
 



I'm a little late on this pallete, but I've been waiting to get my hands on it for the longest time! I've used this once and I simply loved it. The shades are very easy to work with and the pigmentation is wonderful. It also comes with an Urban Decay primer which is quite amazing too. I may be doing a look with this pallete, so if you'd like to see the tutorial, let me know in the comments below!



Orgasm Blush by NARS


 
 
The endless raves I've heard and read about this blush are insane. So, into my collection it goes! Highly pigmented and extremely complimenting. This is definitely a go-to blush when you're going for a natural look, no matter what skin tone you have! It does have a slight golden shimmer, but NARS has managed to keep it elegant, so you can't complain!
 
 
 
24/7 Concealer by Urban Decay
 
 
 
 
I have been obsessed with concealers and constantly on the hunt to find a perfect match for my skin, and this pretty pencil is definitely a runner up, It gives amazing coverage with it's creamy formula that dries up into a gentle matte that has you flawless for hours. I have this in FBI but they're also available in 7 other shades.
 
 
I then decided to go to a local drugstore, hoping to find the Revlon lip butters but they didn't have them, so I decided to go all out and purchase some bold colours, even though I'm more of a natural, soft pink kind of girl.
 
 
Rose Passion Lipstick by Rimmel 
 
 
 
 
I'm usually miles away from bold, red lipsticks unless they're steps away from a gorgeous nude, but I was actually very impressed with this lippie, it looks very nice on and it's a nice red for my collection, which just may be a start to a whole line of them, who knows!
 
 
 
Kiss Me Lipstick by Rimmel
 



This cheeky colour appears very coral and again, I actually like it! It smells so good and I simply adore the crown on the packaging. Kudus to Rimmel, for that!

My next stop was at Sephora & straight to Benefit I go!

Go Tropicoral lip & cheek kit by Benefit




First of all, how cute is the name on this beauty? I was looking to buy one of the famous Benefit kits and couldn't decide which one I should go for. I can't deny, I wouldn't have mind getting everything that was on their stand, but I could only go for one, and this lucky kit went into my basket! It's only been a few since I've had it, so I haven't given it a fair try yet, but I definitely will and either way, the packaging on these are way too cute!


The POREfessional primer by Benefit




Yes, my dears, this little thing is no longer on my wish list. If you've been on my blog for a while, you'd know how much I've been wanting the POREfessional primer. It was in my 10 products every beauty guru own that my collection lacks post, on my instagram and even managed to get through my tweets, but I finally have it! I'm very excited to try this and I'm really hoping it won't disappoint!


They're Real! mascara by Benefit




I was seduced into purchasing this by the saleswoman but I couldn't say no with all compliments it has gotten from FleurDeForce, Zoella and a lot of other beauty gurus. I gave it a try and I honestly love it. The thickness and length with just one layer is amazing. I'm not sure if it gives you fake lashes since I've never tried putting them on, but I'll let you know!

Benefit had a special offer, so with the amount I paid, I got a little bag with three mini products and well, the more the merrier!


Stay Don't Stray primer by Benefit


 
 
I haven't tried this primer but I'm excited to give it a chance. I love the packaging and it's just a cute product to have, as all Benefit products are!
 
 
The POREfessional primer by Benefit
 
 


Another POREfessional primer! Yay!


Bad Gal Lash mascara by Benefit




This little cutie is currently in my makeup bag, it gives you smoky lashes, if I might say and I'm very happy I now own it!


Cherry dry shampoo by Batiste
 
 
 

Lastly, I stopped at Boots and repurchased the Batiste dry shampoo in cherry which you already saw me rave about in my June Favourites!
 
And that is all for my beauty haul! I'm trying to stop spending so much money so hopefully, I'll be able to resist for a little while. I really hope you enjoy hauls as much as I do, so let me know if you'd like to see my fashion haul, and if you have any interest in seeing a tutorial or a makeup look with any of the products above, I'll be happy to do one for you!

If you want a review and swatches of anything, just let me know!

  3. Finally the Poreprofessional is in your hand!!
    About Rimmel what can I tell you? I had bad experience with this mark so I promise to myself to buy less but good makeup and Urban Decay is one of my fav. Here in Italy I find this trade only at Sephora.
    Happy week end! :D

  22. There's something so satisfying about buying lots of things. I suppose it's such a girly thing to like.

    I really like the Baptiste dry shampoo's packaging. I didn't know there was a cherry scented one.
