April Collective Beauty Haul 2016

6 months ago

Hi to all the beauty addicts out there! I would like to share with you a haul of items I purchased over the course of April. Some of which are items I love and new items I bought to try or just to satisfy my beauty addiction... Lol

First here is that I went back to Daiso and purchased 4 more, yes 4 more boxes of their cotton squares and I plan on getting more. The last time I used it, I was able to use one pad to remove makeup from both eyes. But then again I didn`t put on a boat load of makeup on the eyes that day. Just a neutral look. But I love it so much , I just couldn`t help myself but stock up on it. I noticed that others were picking it also. Their supply has gone down. That`s a good sign that it`s good quality for an affordable price right!

The next item I picked up were some lip liners. I never was a lip liner type of gal. But recently I`ve been using darker colors and noticed that lip liners really do help while using dark colors. So I picked up one from essence and 5 from NYX. First off the Essence one is so dry and hard to apply, I regret purchasing even though I love the color. I wish they would improve on the formula cause I love the color!
The NYX ones, even though were more expensive, were much better in quality. I guess sometimes it`s true when they say you get what you pay for. I bought 2 in mauve, and 1 each in prune, nude pink, and nude. The first 3 NYX ones are not retractable and are made in France! The last one in nude is retractable and is made in the USA. My favorite color from the bunch is prune, so wish I had picked up more of this one and I`ll tell you why later on.

The 3rd item I picked up were two lippies from Covergirl. I haven`t bought their lippies in ages and the last time I bought one , it was a big disappointment. Not listening to my instincts I bought some more. I picked up two in their Colorlicious line. I picked up 245 Honey Bloom and 340 Delicious. While this is better compared to the previous lipstick I bought from them, I didn`t really enjoy the colors I chose. For me, Honey Bloom washed me out even though it looked really good on this other girl that had it on. Delicious looked much better but it was nothing of a special color that made me think `Wow`. I think I should`ve bought Tantalizing instead which I`m planning on picking up next time.

The last item I picked up were two concealers from the Maybelline Master conceal line. I picked up the shade light first and found it way to light which made my undereye area look ashy, so I then went back and purchased the shade medium which is the right shade. I wish I had returned the shade light but then again I could mix it with the shade medium to use as a brightening shade. But even though I found my shade, the staying power wasn`t great and it creaesd after a few hours of wear. It also made my under eye area look dry. When I finish this up, I will definitely not pick it up again.

Now let me tell you the reason why I love the NYX liner in prune. Remember I said I didn`t like the Covergirl lipstick in Honey Bloom. Well if I apply the liner first and then go over that with the lipstick, it totally changes the color. It`s turns into a pinkish mauvy color that I an actually wear. This makes me happy.

Now all these items with the exception of the cotton pads were all purchased during sales. I hate paying full price for drugstore beauty items. Well for any items...lol
You may like these items that I have mentioned or you may not. For me as I mentioned above , not everything I got was a love for me. But we all go through trial and error.

Hope you have better luck than me trying out new items. I just wish drugstores would set out testers. It would make it so much easier for us consumers.
