I recently posted about a website that I would consider a Sephora alternative, I mentioned that I’ll do a proper haul post of the things I bought from this website. I have few comments about some products I got from this website which I’ll mention later, this post isn’t sponsored in any way.
NYX Shine Killer ($14.00)
The first product is a primer that keeps your face matte if you have an oily skin. To be honest, it doesn’t work on everyone as I read mixed reviews about this.
GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment ($49.99)
This mud mask is one of the over-hyped beauty products in my community so I bought it because I want to understand the hype. I’ll admit it’s a great mask but I’ve used similar type of masks and they were less pricey than this one. I’ll comment though on the product that it’s a tester which is stated in their website “Jar is a tester unit, it has never been tested or used. No box”
URBAN DECAY Shadow Primer Potion – Original ($9.99)
Again, one of the over-hyped products but honestly it’s worth it. It keeps the eyeshadow in place for a long time and minimizes any creasing on the lids The wand is definitely useless and it’s driving everyone insane. My comment about this product like the previous one is also stated in their website “Tubes have scratches due to being unboxed.”
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – San Paulo ($6.00)
NYX matte lip creams are my favorite at the moment, I’ve been already obsessed with Cannes shade so I decided to try out different shades. This shade is more of a red shade than a nude but it’s quite light and it can give a pink tint when it’s evened out with fingers.
NYX Butter Gloss – Creme Brulee ($5.00)
I’ll confess something, I ordered this because of Karalee’s review post. I’m so in love with this, it’s not that super shiny gloss which is a plus point for me. I love how it leaves my lips soft and smooth, since it doesn’t last long I decided to mix it with another product and it worked well.
L.A. GIRL Matte Line Art Eyeliner – Intense Black ($9.00)
I’ve been fangirlling (is that even a word ?) over Kat Von D Tattoo Liner for the longest time, I absolutely love that eyeliner. I decided to try out a new eyeliner I never tried before which is the L.A. Girl eyeliner and I’m in love. It’s almost similar to Tattoo liner, dries fast and it’s easier to line the lid without messing it up if you have shaky hands.
CAILYN Pure Lust Extreme Matte – Nudist 09 ($19.00)
Honestly I’ve never heard of this brand, I don’t know anyone who tried it as well so I wanted to try it because .. it’s nude and matte, enough said. It’s nude alright but has a slight pink tint to it, gets the matte effect fast enough therefore I like it.
L’OREAL Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum ($12.99)
I’ve always used serums for my face as part of my skincare routine, I found this product and I wanted to give it a try because it’s also like a moisturizer. From the first use I instantly felt the effect, it got absorbed fast and it left my skin really soft. It closes obvious pores which I liked the most about it, I’ll continue using it everyday as part of my skincare routine and see how it goes.
URBAN DECAY Lush Lash Mascara ($16.99)
I’m a total mascara hoarder, having this amount of mascaras satisfies me. This mascara has officially became my favorite from the day I first tried it, it doesn’t give you spider lashes from the first use. It lengthen the lashes and give them a fuller look, it makes the eye look gorgeous to be honest. The website stated “full size, no box” but like I mentioned in a post with my first impression of this website, it seemed unused even though it didn’t come in a packaged box.
L.A. GIRL Matte Pigment Gloss – Dreamy ($6.00)
This liquid lipstick is so beautiful, I needed to take a moment to admire it when I tried it for the first time. The color is definitely darker than the Cailyn one I mentioned earlier, it gives a beautiful shade with matte effect and it’s long lasting. I barely felt it on my lips after using it and doesn’t smudge at all.
I paid overall total $148.96 plus $13.50 for shipping. It came really fast and it was well packaged in a box. Other than the comments I mentioned, the website sells authentic makeup products and I honestly like it, will probably buy the rest of my makeup from it if they bring Kat Von D products.
