Makeup Haul & 1st Impressions

So, today I am sharing a haul and a few first impressions with you guys. I have accumulated a few products and thought it was about time I shared what I got the past few months. Products are high-end and drugstore.

❤ Highlighters: Essence / H & M

I got two highlighters. One is from the brand Essence. It is called Soo glow cream to powder highlighter. I got it in the shade 10 (yellow undertone). I bought it cause well YouTube made me do it.

1st impressions:  It does feel like a cream in the package, but when you apply it on your skin, it feels like a powder. It is easy to blend. It is glowy and from a distance you do not really see the glitter (subtle but there). There is no mirror in the compact.

I also got a new arrival from the H&M makeup line. This is called Glow to Go Highlighter stick in the shade Champagne pearl. This is a limited edition. It contains shea butter and Vitamin E.

1st impressions: When I opened it and tried to see the product it flew out of the packaging. Luckily nothing happened to the highlighter. It look beautiful on my hand. Haven’t worn it out yet! I don’t think I will be applying it as a stick though cause the stick is quite chunky.

❤ Foundation: L’oreal

I repurchased the Infallible 24H-Matte foundation. It has medium coverage, feels nice on the skin and is long-lasting. I really liked this and that’s why this is a repurchase.

I also bought the L’oreal Nude Magic Cushion. Unfortunately, I do not like it. It has almost no coverage and looks shiny (in the bad way). My skin is combination and I have been told that this ‘cushion’ is better for dry skin. I was also told to apply it with a beauty blender and try to use some powder as well. So, I will give it another shot. Why will I give it another shot? Cause I like the packaging, the idea and I love L’oreal products. I will be back with a full review later on this month.

❤ Estee Lauder

I got the Pure color Envy lip gloss in the shade 240 Passionate Fuschia. I love the colour, it lasts for a while, but it is a bit sticky (it’s glossy, so a bit sticky). I love, love this one.

According to Estee Lauder’s website,

Now you have hours to glow. This luminous, long-wear BB brightens, perfects and corrects. Lightweight, moisture-fresh. Long-wear formula—8 hours.

Photo Optic™ Technology brightens shadows, helps erase the look of fatigue, highlights facial features. Color true.

Minimizes imperfections including blemishes, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles. Non-settling.

I will test it and let you know.

❤ Caudalie

I got the Caudalie Instant foaming Cleanser. I love this cleanser. This is a repurchase. It is such a gently foam that has a subtle scent. I use it every morning to wash my face. Love, love, love.
