April has been one good month. I bought some new products and I got some for review purposes. It's rare that I accumulate this much of new products, so I thought it would be nice to do a haul and show you what reviews you may expect in the future.
Silky Touch Cleansing Milk
I got this cleansing milk in Spar and I was intrigued by it, because I saw that Afrodita Cosmetics is doing this cleansing milk for the Spar brand. I thought I might find a cheaper alternative to my Balea Med Cleansing Milk. Haven't tried it yet.
MAC blush in Peaches
First of all, it's not real MAC. I said something about it on my Instagram. I ordered it from Aliexpress and thought it wouldn't say MAC on it, but it does. I already found the differences in the packaging, comparing it to the original. I also found that the texture is nothing like the real MAC blush. However, the shade is very pretty. Right up my alley.
I got some coupons from DM for 50% off of some natural brands. I love going a bit more natural for my face and I seized the opportunity to try something new.
Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm
I think this is the original one with the honey. This is a repurchase. Burt's Bees are one of my favorite lip balms. They're moisturizing and thick, how I like them.
Le Petit Olivier Regenerating Night Balm
I bought this on, because I wanted some night care for my face. I expected it to be more creamy, but it's actually like a butter. Therefore the balm name. It looks like a bunch of oils and butters mixed together and then hardened. It's actually extremely oily once you put it on your face, but my skin almost completely soaks it in. I haven't tried it that much, but I somehow got the feeling that it's more a layer that sits on the skin and doesn't really do much. But I might change my opinion after some use.
Sans Soucis Naturkozmetik Sensitive Intensive Serum
I bought this one purely because of the price. I think it's about two euros cheaper than my beloved Dr. Sheller Jojoba Oil and Schisandra Soothing Intensive Serum. This one also contains jojoba and schisandra, so I figured it must me pretty much the same. Haven't tried it yet.
I also found a coupon for Feelunique and I bought some product that were on my wishlist for a long time.
Margaret Debbs Crystal Nail File
I've been contantly repurchasing cheap Essence and DM nail files and I just got tired of it. If I buy a nail file for 2 euros every two months, what's the point? So I decided to invest in some crystal file. I found this one of Feelunique and it had good reviews. I only tried it once and I love it! It files the nails so gently, yet effectively. I had glass files in the past and they've all been crap. The glaze of those files came of after like three uses. I just hope that this one will last me forever, as good crystal files should.
Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
There's no secret I have horrible dry skin on my hands. Just look at some of my nail photos, horrific. I've wanted this cuticle cream for the longest time and I decided to just get it now. I've been applying it liberally when I remember and I do find that the cuticles look more moisturized.
L'Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim
This one is a repurchase. It's my favorite eyeliner. You can read the review here.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Soothing and Repairing Balm
Truthfully, this one was a throw in the basket to get to the desired amount purchase. I needed to buy certain amount and I was short for few euros, so I decided to throw this one in. So far, I don't find it anything special. It's like a regular Labello lip balm to me.
I got these two products from my relative.
Vichy Capital Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 30
It's like a sunscreen in a spray form. You just spray it on and massage it in. It's SPF 30. I haven't tried it yet. This will probably reserved for holidays.
Vichy Ideal Soleil Daily Milky Care
This one is some sort of after sun milk. It sounds promising, since it is daily care and it's for sensitive skin. Also reserved for holidays and no I haven't even opened it.
I also felt the urge to buy some cream highlighters. If you don't know it yet, I'm a highlighter freak. However, I only owe one cream highlighter. I decided to try some from the Born Pretty Store.
Bubu Professional Girl Wow Painting Lip Tint in shade 3
That's the on in the tube. I was unpleasantly surprised that both these highlighters have pink sheen to it. I went for gold ones, but I guess not. They have gold shimmer, but pink sheen. It's a mix of it all. This one is very sheer, maybe even a bit too sheer for my taste. It's too subtle for me. I'm confused about the lip tint name and the fact that it says to be used on the lips?! Maybe it's a multi purpose product?!
Sugar Box Face Shimmer Stick in 02
This one has an amazing fruits scent that makes me happy. It's a lot more pigmented and one swipe will almost send your highlight to the universe. It's a lot more gold, although it also has some pink sheen to it. Love this one.
Born Pretty Store also send me some products, which I picked, for the review.
CBI Colorbox lipstick in 06
You've already seen this one in my Asian inspired simple spring makeup here. It's an amazing bright orange shade. It's extremely pigmented and feels really nice on the lips. Definitely my kind of shade.
Fairy Girl Powder Eyeshadow and Nose Shadow in 01
This is an eyeshadow powder for eyebrows and you can also use it to contour the nose. I love this. Been wearing it ever since I got it. The shades are really nice, because they're not too warm and the powder seems to be really well pigmented. The brush that comes with it, it's useful. Go figure! I actually use it all the time.
I also have a PETRAH10 code for 10% off on their products.
Alpstories, a new brand to be, offered me some products and I was really excited. As I mentioned before, I love going more natural for my skin care and those products pride themselves on being natural.
Alpstories Organic Shampoo Aloe Vera
This one came with the package as an extra. I'm not big on natural hair products, but I did already tried it once. I have to say it cleaned my hair well, which is all I expect from my shampoo. It also didn't left them squeakily clean, like some shampoos do, which is a plus in my opinion.
Alpstories Cold Pressed 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil
I've always had argan oil in the back of my mind. It's always been said that argan oil is one of the best oils for face, so I decided to get this one. I tried it only once on my face and I like it. I used it overnight and my skin was well moisturized and soft in the morning.
Alpstories Hyaluronic Acid Cream
Hyaluronic acid is great for fighting wrinkles and making better skin surface in general. I'm 26 and I start to look for anti age ingredients more and more. I don't believe you can stop the aging process, but I believe you can make it go a little slower. That's why I decided for this cream. So far I like it. It's a nice creamy texture. It's well moisturizing, but it becomes matte when I massage it into the skin. I also really like the subtle natural smell.
Today Slovenian online store Ličila.si suprised me with this lovely package.
Makeup Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour Kit in Ultra Fair
I've actually had this product on my wish list and in that exact shade, so I was really happy to get it. I already tried it today and I am really surprised by the pigmentation. It's really pigmented. I also love the champagne pink shade of highlighter. And the blush shade is just as amazing. Coral pink with gold shimmer. Beautiful.
Makeup Revolution Pressed Powder in Translucent
I'm glad to report that this is an extremely light shade of powder. Fair ladies, I can almost recommend it already. I only tried it on my hand, but it look promising.
They also gave me a code for my you. It's called BRALKABLOGA15 and you get 15% off on all the products that are not on sale (the offer doesn't include Sigma Beauty, Kardashian Beauty and Anastasia Beverly Hills).
Ličila.si mi je poslal kodo s katero lahko dobite 15% popust na nakup. Koda se glasi BRALKABLOGA15. Uporabite jo lahko na vse neznižane izdelke (izključene so znamke Sigma Beauty, Kardashian Beauty in Anastasia Beverly Hills).
Another brand that offered me to try some of their products, is Farmasi. I think this is the same type of system as it is with Avon. It's Turkish brand and they cover everything from skin care, to makeup, hair and body products.
Farmasi Eyebrow Styling Powder
Powder for eyebrows. I already tried it and I like it. I've always been using Catrice eyebrow pencil, but I seem to really like those eyebrow powders. I didn't really like the before, because I never found them to be pigmented enough.
Farmasi Kajal Secret Eyeliner Pen
Don't really understand why it's called Kajal, because it's like a felt tip liner. It literally looks like a marker. I haven't tried it yet.
Farmasi Eye Brow Pencil in 01
I tried this one and the shade is a bit too warm to match my natural brows. However, it does suit my warm hair, although I prefer my brows to be cool toned.
Farmasi Shine Rush in 01 and 02
It's a two in one product. On one side you have lipstick and on the other it's matching lip gloss. One of the shades is more of a fuchsia pink and the other is a warm red toned pink. The lipsticks are extremely pigmented. Lip glosses are pretty sheer, but match the lipsticks. Haven't wore them yet.
Farmasi BB Cream All In One in Medium to Dark
I actually forgot to took a photo of this one. It's their BB cream, but I got the Medium to Dark, which is of course way too dark for me. I'll probably mix it with my foundations once I get a summer tan. I actually love the smell of this BB cream and it seems to be pretty thick, which could mean good coverage.
