New Year Beauty Haul

It's finally 2016! I'm sad that the school term will be starting in a week. Despite all of that, I need to start recovering from the holidays.

I have a bunch of new beauty and skincare products that I'm so excited to try out in this new year... probably very very soon.


* All the products were purchased by me, gifted to me by friends, or sent to me for PR consideration.

~ FaceShop Herb Day Cleansing Foam Lemon: It's suppose to be a brightening cleanser that uses lemon extract to eliminate dead skin and give a luminous complexion. Excited to try!

~ Lord & Taylor Perfect Eyes Natural Palette: I didn't have an eyeshadow palette consisting of pink and rose toned shades, and it was at a great price of $10 from Hudson's Bay! A review post on it is coming soon so keep your eyes peeled.

~ Elizabeth & James Nirvana White Roller Ball: This is my favourite fragrance of all time. A beautiful but not overpowering floral scent that has notes of peony, muguet, and tender musk. It's a feminine scent that I love.

~ The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz: I've never really used or seen the benefits of a facial spray... but with this I can try it out! It probably smells of citrus which I would like. 

~ Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquers: These four nail polishes cover all the bases for winter berry tones, although they can all be used throughout the year. I've yet to try them but I hope they are opaque and chip resistant. 

~ Hourglass Travel Size Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light: I've been wanting to try this for so so long since hearing the rave reviews of these powders! They're awesome for making your skin look radiant and recreating the perfect light on your face.

~ Holika Holika After Hard Study Mask Sheet: I've heard of this Asian beauty brand before. I'm saving this mask for later on in the school term after some legit, hardcore studying!

~ FaceShop Cushion Screen Cell in Natural Beige: I've been also wanting to try this form of foundation on. You use a sponge pad to press on the cushion soaked in the liquid foundation and then apply onto the face. A similar, popular product is the Laneige BB Cushion. This was 50% off so it was a more affordable option to try first. 

~ Maybelline Colour Elixir in Mauve Mystique: I've already tried this lip gloss but I gotta say that I'm a bit disappointed in it. It gives a high shine but the colour doesn't show well on the lips. I have another one in a bright coral colour for the spring/summer months and the colour pay-off of that is much better. Maybe this was a faulty one. 

~ Rimmel Matte BB Cream in Medium: For general everyday use I like using something lighter like a BB cream, but this can also control oil shine with the matte finish... killing two birds with one stone! 

Hope you are all having a wonderful start to the new year!

Until next time, Des
