This post has been in limbo for so long as I’ve just been super busy developing my business and spending a lot of time on social media but not enough time on here so Thank You to my followers who have stayed with me!! Here is the ‘Everything but Sephora’ Haul from when I was in New York in November! As with my Sephora post, this post is not a review of the products, it’s purely because I know I like to see what people bought! Haha!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Sub Culture Palette
I am a huge fan of the palettes that have been released by Anastasia Beverly Hills having started my collection with the Modern Renaissance Palette and added to this with the Soft Glam, Prism and now the Sub Culture. This palette did get some negative reviews due to the formula not being a great quality. At this stage I can’t confirm what I think as I haven’t used this yet but I will review it. I picked this up for a fraction of the usual price in TJMaxx!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio
This little beauty was another absolute bargain from TJMaxx! I think this was around $10!! Another product that I haven’t yet used but will review when I have.
Kat Von D Light & Shade Eye Contour Palette
My final TJMaxx bargain was this Kat Von D palette. I have added this palette to my kit and am finding it to be a versatile palette with cool tone shades for definition. The shades blend well but when I’ve used it more I’ll be able to review properly.
Rouge Salon – Mini Haul
I am in LOVE! My Husband booked for me to have a Makeover and create my own Lipstick at Rouge Salon the day after we arrived in New York. It was an AMAZING experience and can highly recommend it to anyone who has considered it before. As a Makeup Artist it is always fab to learn new things and learning from Lulu (who was my Makeup Artist) was fantastic.
Prior to my Makeup being done, we created my bespoke Lipstick for which I said I wanted to find the perfect red shade for me as I find many reds don’t suit me. This shade is absolutely perfect for me and I of course had to buy a lip pencil that would enable me to create the classic red lip! Lulu had used the Inglot shadows on me, 4 of them which were part of the Freedom Palette system – I use these shadows alot. They’re nice and soft and blend beautifully. Lastly, a concealer brush and flat shadow brush which are both super soft and have been added to my personal stash of brushes 😛
Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer
After seeing so many great reviews on this I decided to buy it, and I hate to admit it but this is one of the products that I’ve forgotten I had until now!! I will get using this and then I can report back what I think of it!!! It is said to be infused with Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter … how lush does that sound???
NYX Mini Haul
Despite getting pro-discount in the UK with NYX, there was a store-wide sale on in New York – I think it was 30% off!!! I have wanted their powder contour palette for ages so jumped in and bought that along with another blush of theirs – I have a couple already and love the formula and the pigment. I also picked up a red lip liner for my kit as I don’t have one already and also an angled eyeliner brush for my kit too. Given the discount these items were a bargain! The contour palette I have started to use on clients and so far so good. It has a good range of shades to choose from and they blend out nicely too.
So, that’s it!! It doesn’t feel like I bought too much this time round!! Haha! If you didn’t catch my Sephora Haul post, you can check it out here!
