Even though I run a beauty blog, my love affair with makeup is surprisingly up and down. I go through phases where I don’t care for any new releases, where I’ll find every new video uploaded by my favourite YouTube gurus to be completely the same and uninteresting, and my Mecca Beauty Junkie level will drain down to $0. But then! Months will pass and I’ll have an abrupt change of heart. Suddenly I’m hitting Instagram’s Bookmark button on photos of makeup that give me ultimate heart eyes, I’m walking into Mecca Maxima and chucking items into a basket with wild abandon, and I’m making an online order before my previous one from another brand has arrived. Currently, I’m the latter. Like clockwork, I tend to find myself falling back in love with makeup around the middle of the year. I use the fact that I’m half way through another university year to justify spending far too much money on items I clearly don’t need. Since I’m in my final semester of university, I’ve taken serious advantage of this being the last time I can justify buying a pricey NARS palette because ‘I just submitted an essay, yay!’ Since I took a little break with blogging, I ended up acquiring a bunch of things over the course of a fair few weeks and have dabbled with a bunch of them. So not only is this a haul, it’s also heaps of mini reviews as well. Keep reading to see what I treated myself too, why I wanted it, and what I think of it all!

Besides the little souvenirs I bought myself when overseas, it’s actually been such a long time since I’ve done a decent makeup haul? Good on me. Recently I loosened the purse strings and found myself finally placing another Colourpop order. While I feel like they need to slow down in the eyeshadow department and stop releasing a new one every week, the driving force behind this haul was those stunning matte lipsticks they’ve released in a million colours for a ridiculously affordable price. Since my order arrived a week or so ago I’ve had some time to play around with things, so I hope you enjoy this haul and mini review post!

When you travel to Florence, Pisa, Venice, Paris and London and love pretty things as much as me, you’re bound to come back home with a bag – or three – of precious items! While I bought my fair share of generic souvenirs like key rings and tea bags, I thought I’d feature the more unique treasures I stumbled across during my travels. Whether you’re travelling soon and want to know what’s out there, or just love a good old-fashioned haul, I hope you enjoy this post!

As the weather stays gloomy and drizzly (which is actually my favourite) and the season gets spookier, a little Lush Cosmetics haul just seems appropriate! Lush is well known for releasing limited edition collections around the holidays, such as Easter, Halloween and especially Christmas. In fact, when I bought these products yesterday, half the display was filled with Christmas items already! My university semester is coming to a close, which means thankfully more time to relax, and more excuses to treat myself! I have been debating picking up a bunch of spooky, seasonal picks from Lush and yesterday finally popped a few items into my basket!

I’m aware that not even a month ago I was titling a previous blog post with the words ‘Kylie Cosmetics Haul’ and fawning over her pink, sparkly packaging. Well, Jenner’s entire online store had a 20% off summer sale, so I jumped on board and ordered myself a bunch of lipsticks and glosses and finally gave into the products I have been umming and ahhing over for months! Keep reading to find out which products I was dying to get my hands on, why I wanted them, and what my initial first thoughts on them are!

Kylie turned twenty this month and with that came another new Kylie Cosmetics collection to help celebrate her birthday! I have an on and off relationship with Kylie Cosmetics, I’ll either adore something or not be interested in it one bit. I wasn’t excited by her recent beige and polka dotted vacation collection full of bronzers and nude matte lipsticks, however when this birthday collection was revealed on her social media platforms, I fell hard and fast! Below I break down what I bought from the collection (and what I didn’t buy and why) and include my first impressions of the products complete with swatches too!

In the beauty community it seems like every day a new product is either being announced on social media, released to the public or flooding my YouTube subscription box with reviews! Over the past few weeks I’ve had my eye on a couple of products but have decided I’m not going to purchase them, and here’s why!
