Glossier, Colourpop, Sephora Haul

Blog, Hauls

Ciao!

So this post is long overdue, mostly because none of my packages arrived at the same time. Essentially, these are just my purchases from November. Because I’ve been using all of them for a week (at the least) this will be a haul with my current opinions of the product!

I placed orders from Sephora during their VIB sale, Colourpop during their buy one get one free eyeshadow sale, and Glossier…right before a sale (because I didn’t think ahead).

Let’s go!

Colourpop + Lush haul!

Blog, Hauls

Ciao!

If you’d told me before I started my blog I’d be ordering from Colourpop, I would’ve said your were out of your mind.

Way back in September (almost a year ago!) I was beginning to get into makeup. I heard about Colourpop for the first time when they were in the news for their… um poorly named sculpting sticks. The line was heavily criticized for it’s lack of diverse colors and their offensive names for the darker colors such as Typo, Dume, and Yikes. You can read more about it here.

I vowed to never order from them, but as time went on I became interested in their products. Every time an influencer mentioned Colourpop, I cringed slightly. I began to feel like I was hating them for a small mistake, something they’d apologized for. So now, a year later I placed an order from them right after the wildly successful launch of their concealers, which have a line of 15 shades.

15 shades isn’t a lot, but it’s progress.

I was super excited and wanted to try a few things without getting anything I didn’t need. So, I sadly passed on the pressed bronzer and highlight and the super shock cheek products.

I also picked up a few things from Lush, one a well loved repurchase and one something new to try. Keep reading to see what I got!

New York haul

Blog, Hauls

Ciao!

Last week I was in New York, beauty capital of the world. I did quite a bit of shopping while I was there, but both places I bought from were places I couldn’t go at home.

First I went to the glossier showroom where I swatched everything they sold and picked up a few things for myself.

Second I went to the Bite Beauty lip lab where I created my own lipsticks alongside my mom. I’ll be doing individual posts on both of those experiences soon!

I also had the amazing opportunity to visit Winky Lux and received a ton of PR from them. I won’t be including that in this post because not all of the items are available for purchase yet, however expect reviews soon!

Haul from Burberry and Kiko Milano

Blog, Hauls

Ciao!

Here’s my haul from my shopping trip in Milan, where I got a few lipsticks from Burberry and grabbed a few products to try from Kiko Milano.

For me, when I splurge on makeup, it’s always lipstick (and most often from Burberry). I’ve checked out a few of the other products Burberry sells (like this one) but I’ve never thought they were worth the money. I’m willing to pay $30 for one lipstick, but I would never consider paying $62 for this eyeshadow palate or $68 for this highlight.

Burberry is the most high-end brand I will ever buy (I discussed how I felt about Tom Ford here) and I just think brands like Dior and Chanel sell makeup that is so overpriced, you reach a point where you’re paying for packaging and only packaging.

Meanwhile, Kiko Milano is a new brand based in Milan with drugstore like prices. Their products are pretty cost friendly, but I’ve never tried any of the products so I can’t speak for the quality. However, they ship all over Europe and to the US which is great!

Let’s check it out!
