Collective haul and bonus Christmas presents

Hi guys! Today’s post is a collective haul from various places, including Sephora, MAC, drugstore and a few Christmas presents from a few different people! So let’s get started, shall we?


This is a cute little haul and I’m super excited about all the stuff I got, especially because I got to travel and bring a lot of it to Chile with me! I didn’t want to bring too many new products I’ve never tried before, but some of the stuff you see here made it to Chile with me.


First up, I got a Lâncome lipstick from a friend that she said she wasn’t using and that I always rocked a red lipstick better anyway (her words, not mine). Of course, I wasn’t about to turn down a free red lipstick but like the doofus I am, I forgot to check the shade name. Sorry! Then I got a new MAC lipstick in the shade Please Me, which I’m totally and 100% blaming Lucie for because she was the one who convinced me to! I originally got a different color from my friend Emma as part of She Did What She Wanted‘s gift exchange, but the color was super close to another MAC lipstick I already had, so I exchanged it for Please Me and I couldn’t be happier! It’s a beautiful muted pink, almost a nude lipstick and perfect for everyday wear!


Up next, we have two of the NYX soft matte lip creams, which were a Christmas present from my brother. I got one from Jodi recently but I haven’t had a chance to wear them but I’m super excited to, as I’ve heard plenty of amazing things about them. I got the colors Prague (on the left) and Addis Ababa (in the middle). Addis Ababa isn’t very pigmented and looks quite sheer on the lips, but Prague is a lot more pigmented and I can’t wait to wear it! Then we have a limited edition lip gloss from Sexy Hair Concepts, which Kira got for me as part of their Christmas present. It’s a beautiful color, super pigmented, but not sticky, so it’s the perfect lip gloss!


Then some perusing in Sephora led me to cave and buy two of the Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick Duos, as they were on sale for ten dollars each and that’s basically four lipsticks for five dollars, so how could I resist? From left to right, we have Latte, Cortado, Palomino and Pomegranate. These came to Chile with me and I haven’t regretted it for a single second, as they are super pigmented and very moisturizing! They’re extremely comfortable to wear and I love all of them.


Lastly, we have the BECCA highlighters (sorry, too lazy to type out the whole name) in the color Opal. This was also part of Kira’s amazing Christmas present and I was super excited because I’d been wanting to get my hands on this set but when I went to Sephora, it was out of stock! But my best friend knows me well and they know how bad I wanted it! It was part of a (limited edition, I believe) set with a travel-sized powder highlighter and cream highlighter. I brought the powder with me to Chile and I’ve been loving it.

And as you can see way back in the corner there, I got the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream in the acne treatment formula. I really wanted something to bring with me to Chile but I tried and failed to get the L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation since they didn’t have a color that suited my skin (lightest color was too light, next up was too dark). A BB cream obviously isn’t the same as a foundation, but it provides some coverage and I do like it a lot! (Not pictured is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation I bought the last day before I left for my travels.)

So that’s it for my haul! Let me know what you think and if you’ve tried any of these products before.

  1. You do rock a red lip so well! I really envy you!
    That NYX soft matte lip cream in Prague is gorgeous! Drugstore foundations can sometimes be so frustrating – I tend to fall in between shades too so I end up having to mix colours.
    Great items! :) How long are you in Chile for?
