Hi my loves! As soon as I get my paycheck I’m buying makeup. And spend most of it. I know, it’s bad. So I have another haul for you guys, not as big as I wanted it to be, but I’m saving the rest of my money, so I can buy makeup later this month. Look at me being an adult!
Anyway, I got some goodies, both drugstore and high end so there’s something for everyone.
If you follow me on social media, you already know that I finally got my hands on Anastasia Beverly Hills’ liquid lipstick in Pure Hollywood and I swear I cried. It’s impossible to get in Denmark, you can’t buy it here, BUT a online store opened and they began selling it. First they didn’t have the colors I wanted, but I stalked them and when I saw they got Pure Hollywood, I was the first to get my hands on it and I’ve used it ever since. It quickly became my holy grail. I was afraid it was going to be too nude, since I’m really pale and it’s tricky with shades like that, but it looked PERFECT. So happy! I bought it here.
Another thing that’s (almost) impossible to get in Denmark, is the Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation. At least for me, because I don’t live anywhere near a Sephora. I did find a website that’s shipping to Denmark, the only catch: shipping is $14,72 which is a lot, but I wanted this foundation for so long, so I caved in. I bought it HERE.
From the same website I also got the RCMA loose powder, that I talked about in another post. Found it on 4 different websites but it was sold out, but not on this website. Lucky me!

From Wet n Wild, I got the popular Rose Champagne Glow To Reflect Shimmer Palette. I like it, but after some time it got a bit patchy. You don’t just get a highlight, but also a bit color which I really liked. I have to try it a bit more, but it’s nice.
Also from Wet n Wild I got the Mega Glo Illuminating Powder in Strike-A-Pose-Rose. It looked different online, so when I got it, it was a bit disappointing. It looks kinda scary in the picture, but I think it’ll be great once I play around with it.
You guys know how much I love Rimmel’s Kate Moss line, especially the lipsticks, so I had to try the Kate Sculpting Face Kit. I LOVE the packaging, wow. Looks so pretty. You get a highlight, a contour (though it’s more of a bronzer) and a blush. It comes in 3 different colors. The contour is more warm in real life and unfortunately a bit too orange. I think the other shades would be better, but I can live with it. I really like the blush, the highlight .. Not very pigmented. But if you want to have a natural highlight, this would be perfect.
So for liquid lipsticks besides the ABH one, I got 3. The first one is Milani in Adorable. Similar to Pure Hollywood, but a bit darker. The liquid lipsticks from Milani was limited edition but they brought it back and I snatched it really quick. I was so mad I didn’t get it the last time. Sadly I heard this color and formula is bad, but the other ones should be good. I haven’t tried it yet, so I guess I’ll have to see.
The other two are from Stila. I already own a lot of them, but these colors are my favorites! Also holy grail, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love them. They’re called Caramello and Baci. They have gold packaging (YESSS), where the “normal” Stila liquid lipsticks are black. These are limited edition, so keep that in mind.
I couldn’t get them to show up true to color on my camera, so I’m showing you pictures from Google, so you can see how beautiful they are.
Caramello and Baci.
I’ve been on a hunt to find a good drugstore eye primer. Milani came out with one and I had to try it. I was hoping it would cancel out the colors on my lid, but since it only has a tint, it didn’t. Not much to say about it, I like it but I don’t love it.
In this haul I also want to include the two things I bought from Sigma. A lipliner and a lipstick. Can we just talk about the packaging for a moment? So impressed. It feels expensive and high end. I saw this combination in a video and it looked beautiful. The lipliner is HUGE. Way bigger than Macs, it’ll take so long to finish it. It’s very creamy and easy to apply, definitely one of my favorites. The color is too dark on it’s own, so I like to fill in my lips with it and then put the lipstick on top. So pretty! They are a lot more nude/pink in real life. The lipstick formula is amazing, very pigmented and also really creamy.
The lipstick is called Dance Till Dawn and the lip liner is called In Fine Feather.
So that was it! Hope you enjoyed 🙂
