Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, boxing day, and generally because I’ve been a very good girl – to myself, mostly – these are the reasons I have a decently sized holiday makeup haul to share.Continue reading “Holiday Makeup Haul | MAC, Dior, Tarte, Krash Kosmetics, Pat McGrath, Revolution”
So, remember when I said I wouldn’t get the Unsung Heroes Beauty Bag? Well, I didn’t. You thought I did, didn’t you? You think I’m that weak, no self control, irresponsible person that gives in to her every beauty urges, don’t you? Well, joke’s on you. I didn’t get it.
My husband got it for me.Continue reading “Cult Beauty Haul (Low Buy Year? Never Met Her)”
Limitless by Sephora was an online event prepared by Sephora Portugal that was supposed to happen the past 20th of June. You could get access to the event by buying a beauty box filled with goodies for 30€. When the boxes sold out, you could get the ticket for the event alone for 10€. Now, this was the first time something like this was organised by Sephora. Did I mention it was online?
You know what they say, life is what happens when bandwidth allows it.Continue reading “Limitless by Sephora: Ticket Beauty Box and My Opinion of the Event”
I’ve spent more on beauty during my honeymoon in Santorini than I’ve ever spent on any other trip. I had no idea that Greece had so many beauty brands! I knew about Korres and that was it. So when I went to a department store and saw so many greek makeup brands, I kind of lost it a bit. Like a kid at a candy store that is spending grandma’s money, because we all know mama won’t put up with it. I had to get myself out of there at some point because I was buying the entire store.Continue reading “Greek Beauty Haul | Seven7een, Radiant, Erre Due, Korres, Apivita, AK Makeup, Tommy G”
Do you remember this post? Yeah me neither.
In my defence, this is over 2 months’ worth of purchases. Since I’ve been
pretending trying to cut back on my makeup and skincare purchases, I’ve really gotten into haircare and fragrance. A ridiculous transition, I know, since I was trying to save on beauty spending, but alas, it still happened, and here we are.
I’m not a minimalist. Nor do I aim to be. But 2020 was such a year of indulgence when it came to online shopping for me, that I feel like I need to take a step back and refrain my consumerism.
Basically, I’m so full of stuff I need a shopping diet.Continue reading “2021, My Low Buy Year”
The first big goody bag from Cult Beauty is coming. I received an email today with the 24h priority access to it this goody bag (for being a frequent customer, I guess?). So I’m assuming it will be advertised in the Cult Beauty website tomorrow for everyone to see. I already placed an order and it’s on its way to me. Read ahead to see what comes in this goody bag.Continue reading “The Self Care Goody Bag from Cult Beauty (2021) – a 320£ Value”
I saw Selfridges’ sales being announced somewhere about a month ago and decided to take a peek. Just a peek. Multiple orders later, I give you this (surprisingly unsponsored) post.Continue reading “Selfridges Beauty Sales Haul – Ltd. edition MAC, Huda Beauty, It Cosmetics”
I love post-Christmas sales. ‘Tis the perfect time for retail therapy. The makeup sets that are already a good value to begin with get even more discounted and it’s my goddamn kryptonite – and I was rushing to get this post out because these products are still all available and all on sale.Continue reading “Shop & Tell: Sales & Steals”
It’s been a while since I’ve been so into a holiday collection to want to buy multiple products from it. I actually got these as soon as they came out, in fear they would sell out, but only got around to post about them now. Is this still relevant? Am I still on time?
You have to give me a break people, my kitchen is in shambles. Pre-Christmas construction work. Fun.
Planning a wedding, renovations in our home, on top of the budget closing, objective fulfilling, end-of-the-year season at my job: it’s been stressful. And I’ve been well behaved. Soooo I got myself a few treats. The two face palettes because I couldn’t decide between them and an extra highlighter because it was pretty and shinny.Continue reading “Shop & Tell: MAC’s 2019 Holiday Collection Face Compacts and Opalescent Powder (with swatches!)”
