Beauty Buys Of The Month #4

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Hello ladies, 
I've been shopping again, what's new? 
The sad part though, is that I still can't play around with the majority of these things and I'm having a really difficult time resisting it. I'll probably apply everything at once when I finally can.

 This month I was also kindly sent quite a lot of different product to test out, which excites me even more. But since again, I can't use them yet, I decided to include them in here, to give you a little preview of some upcoming reviews.

Lee Stafford, Schauma, Balea
 I'm currently without a hair mask and since I can't decide in which one I want to invest next, I decided to try the Lee Stafford Treatment For hair that never grows past certain length in the meantime. I've heard quite mixed things about this one, but I always wanted to try it, since my hair is one of those that doesn't seem to grow past a certain length.
Schwarzkopf Schauma Cotton fresh dry shampoo is a repurchase and I actually bought two of them. This is so far the only drugstore dry shampoo that works for me and I don't really want to order from Asos at the moment, since I know I'll end up ordering a bunch of stuff that I don't actually need.
I'm still not hoarding shower gels, so I only buy one at the time. This time I decided to get the Balea LE Paradise Beach and this smells amazing! The pineapple and coconut mixture has you believed that you're showering somewhere on a tropical island after a whole day of sunbathing. I really hope they keep this one in store for a few months, cause it would be the perfect shower gel for Summer.
When I was planning on repurchasing my third tube of Garnier Oil Beauty scrub I saw that they still have the Balea LE Creme - öl dusch peeling. Since I haven't had it in awhile, I decided to get this one instead as I absolutely love the scent of it. I mean who wouldn't love the apple-pie scent?

Bourjois lipstick, L'oreal liquid lipstick, Maybelline Lash sensational
 Next up are the makeup bits I picked up with a coupon I had.
I've heard a lot of positive things about the Bourjois lipsticks, but I didn't own any of them. I finally decided to pick up their Rouge Edition 12 hours in 31 Beige shooting. I only tried it once, but I'm in love with it. Will definitely be picking up more shades.
When I bought the Maybelline Color Elixir lip lacquer, I didn't think I would buy another L'oreal Color Riche L'Extraordinaire liquid lipstick as I slightly prefer the Maybelline ones. But I was randomly swatching them and I fell in love with a few rosy shades. I decided to pick up only one for now, the 102 Rose Finale, but I think I might buy the other ones as well at some point.
The Benefit Roller lash is currently very talked about mascara, and the Maybelline Lash Sensational lash multiplying mascara is supposedly a dupe of it. I won't be able to compare the two, as I don't own the Benefit one, but I'm really curious to see how this will live up to The Rocket. 

Catrice blush, Essence blush, Max Factor Copper
 Of course I couldn't leave the shop without a blush (or two). 
I decided to pick up another shade of the Catrice Illuminating Blush. This one is in 030 Kiss me Ken and I already know I'll get a ton of wear out of it.
As soon as I saw the preview of Essence TE Cinderella, I knew I'll have to get the blush even if I won't like the actually shade of it. What can I say, I'm a sucker for packaging. The good news is, I actually like the shade (01 So this is love).
I've been eyeing up the Max Factor Excess Shimmers for quite some time, but I didn't really need another eyeshadow. Since I had this coupon I allowed myself to get one shade and I chose 20 Copper. I'm really excited to try it, cause the texture feels amazing on the touch.

swatches
 Swatches from left to right:
Essence blush, Catrice blush, Max Factor Excess Shimmer, L'oreal liquid lipstick, Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 hours.

Avon, Nivea
And now onto the things I received.
First up is the package from Avon. I got two of their new face creams, the Nutra Effects Active Seed Complex Hydration Gel Cream light and Hydration Daily Cream SPF 15. They also included their Extra lasting lipstick in the shade Nude blush.
Yesterday I got a completely unexpected package from Nivea and they sent me their new BB Cream 5 in 1 Beautifying moisturizer blemish prone skin, adapts to all skin tones. This one promises a lot and I really can't wait to see how I'll get along with it.

MeMeMe Cosmetics
Me and a few of Slovenian bloggers are also collaborating with Moja Drogerija and MeMeMe Cosmetics and this time they spoiled us rotten. We got so many goodies to try out and I'm itching to swatch everything, but this time I'll wait until I take photos as everything looks amazing.
I got the MeMeMe Flawless Loose Powder in Translucent, Correct & Perfect Concealer Kit in Buff, Dew Pots in Willow Whisper 5, Blush me! blush box in Rouge, Arch Angel shape & define tinted brow gel and highlighting cream in Light Brown and Gaia Long Wear satin lip cream in Cherub Blush.

So these were the products that I recently purchased/received. I really can't wait to have a proper play around with them and share my thought with you. Have you tried any of these?

  1. Moraš čim prej javit kako se obnese od Max Factor senčka... Mateja ni bila preveč zadovoljna, pa sem se jih potem raje izognila. :D

    1. Imam Bronze in mi je všeč kot baza, ampak kot samostojno senčilo ne pride lepo ko zapreš oči (v take kupčke se nabira). Bom imela sliko na očeh v oceni. So mi Tattoo in pa Kiko v stiku bolj všeč :)

    2. Bom poročala čez kakšna dva tedna :D Joj, to pa ne zveni fajn...

  2. Jaz pa sem najprej mislila, da bom vzela blush iz Cinderella kolekcije, ker mi je kjut pakiranje, ampak sem ga preskočila. Poročaj o BB kremi, ker prav razmišljam, da bi si nabavila eno za poletje.

    Avon pa vas je očitno vse kontaktiral, še tista dekleta, ki blogajo komaj nekaj mesecev, razen mene. :(

    1. O BB kremi bo definitivno ocena, glede na preizkus na roki pa mislim, da bo tale bolj kot tinted moisturiser, ker ni bilo videti nič kaj prekrivnosti...Bomo videli kako bo na obrazu :)
      A res? No itak je to njihova izguba, da so te spregledali...

  3. Sami dobri nakupi! :))
    Te Balea gele videvam povsod, očitno bom jih mogla iti malo povonjat v DM, ker mi delujejo zelo zanimivo že po izgledu (obožujem njihove LE poletne verzije gelov) in mogoče se celo pregrešim s kakšnim. :P
    Poročaj, kak ti bo maskara. Meni ponavadi Maybelline maskare niso všeč, ampak ta je takooo privlačna! :D
    L'oreal tekoča šminka je zelo lepe barve, ampak jaz se kar ne morem prepričati, da bi jo kupila po redni ceni..
    Avon šminka mi je tudi zelo všeč, sem hotela tester naročit, ampak je nimajo. :/ Jaz sem isto prejela ti dve kreme + eno iz Radiance linije in lak za nohte.

    1. Meni res krasno diši tale :) Bom poročala, meni je do zdaj edino The Rocket všeč od Maybelline, bomo videli kako bo tale... L'orealove so res kar drage, jaz je verjetno tudi ne bi kupila brez kupončka.
      Šminka pa meni po pravici ni všeč, ima preveč bleščic...

  4. Ta Balea Beach Paradise mi diši isto kot njihovi drugi LE zadnji dve leti zapored. Getting a bit bored, ampak naši obožujejo ta Pina colada vonj :)

    Beige Shooting imam tudi jaz na wishlisti, zraven pa še Prune Afterwork :)

    A Kiss me Ken je nov odtenek? Ker vem, da je bil še tretji, samo je bil temnejši pink/plum.

    Jaz pa sploh nisem odpisala Avonu. Me je malo zmotilo, da so hoteli podatke o branosti. A bit lazy if you ask me.

    1. Jaz se pa ne spomnim, da bi imela še ta Pina colada vonj, mi pa res super diši :D Sem šla takoj googlat za Prune Afterwork, I need it too :D
      Ej ne vem, mislim da ni nov, samo ta spremenjen pattern ima. Drugače izgleda bolj plummy, ampak na koži pa potem ne.
      Mene je to tudi presenetilo, ker se mi je prvič zgodilo da bi kdo zahteval te podatke. Ampak sem za foro poslala, glede na to da so poslali skoraj vsem, itak nisem pričakovala da bom potem kaj dobila :D

  5. Si me spomnila privleči Beige Shooting iz predala, res je lep. Mememe so se res izkazali, medtem ko sem pri Avonu malo razočarana nad temi šimrastimi šminkami (glede na toliko dobrih mnenj o njihovih kremnih odtenkih). Res lepe,čiste slike :)

    1. Meni je ta šminka tudi mimo, vsaj koliko sem jo sprobala na roki, pri MeMeMe so se pa res zelo potrudili :)
      Hvala :D

  6. Beige Shooting sem jaz tudi želela. Imam en drug odtenek, ampak formula mi je res odlična. Nikoli ne izsuši ustnic:). Max Factor senčila tudi vsakič pogledam, ko sem v trgovini, ampak ne smem kupiti, ker imam 6 Maybelline tatujev in res ne bom porabila vseh :D. Avon kremi sta mi izjemno všeč. Sem bila presenečena, ker po navadi Avonove kreme niso ravno primerne za mojo občutljivo kožo.

    1. Uu, kar 6. Jaz imam samo tri, in tudi vem da jih verjetno ne bom nikoli porabila. Mogoče je pa boljše, da nisi kupila teh Max Factor-jevih, ker glede na Matejine izkušnje ne zvenijo obetavno.
      O super, upam da bota meni tudi všeč :)

  7. Ehhh čist preveč hud nakup:):) Balein gel meni tudi dišii zeloo:) ma res bi morala še kakšnega prej porabit preden si ga kupim. BB kremica tudi mene zanima kako se obnese, sicer imam trenutno od Soraye in mi ful ustreza.Masko za lase pa tud sama iščem in moram nujno opravit nakup, ker mi je zmanjkuje, tole od LS ima moja prijateljica in je zadovoljna z njo.*

    1. U, jaz pa od Soraye še nisem nič preizkusila, sem pa slišala že ogromno pozitivnih ocen :)

  8. Same top stvari :3 tale balea gel moram probat, pa tudi kakšna nova maskaza lase mi nebi škodila sedaj ko bo sonce vedno močnejše :)
