Beauty Buys Of The Month #6

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Hello ladies,
after a week of reviews, it's time to show you all the products I bought in the past month. I actually chose the perfect time to post this, as I got my Boots International order just earlier today.

Beauty Buys, haul
As always I'll include some thoughts about the products I've already tried, and if you want to read a full review / first impressions on any of these products just let me know and I'll gladly write that.
Also please let me know if you would like to read my thoughts on the Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes. I'm not sure if this is something you would be interested in as there are already so many reviews out there.

Hair, Body, products
 Earlier this month I placed an order on Asos as I wanted some new sunglasses. Since they've changed their delivery policy and you need to order over 30€ for free shipping to Slovenia, I also picked up two other products, one of them being the Batiste Cherry dry shampoo. Although I just bought one last month, I decided to get another one as I can never have too many dry shampoos in my stash.  I haven't tried this scent yet, but I think I'm really going to like it as the cap of it smells amazing.
I've been using the L'oreal Professionnel Shine Blonde brightening repair shampoo for awhile now and since I'm finally running very low on it & since I noticed that it doesn't really do just as great as it used to when my hair wasn't so blonde, I decided to try a different shampoo. After not knowing which one to order, I opted for one that I can get in Müller and I've also heard a few good things about it; the Swiss O Par Silver Shampoo. Hopefully I'll like it.
There has been so much buzz between Slovenian bloggers about the Afrodita 100% Bronze Skin Marmelada (Fast tanning jam) that I just had to get it. It was also marked down in Tuš Drogerija which was another bonus. Now we just need to get some sunny weather so that I can try it.
Vera Wang Princess is one of my all-time favourite perfumes and I'm running low on mine so I was using it very sparingly. That was before a fellow Slovenian Blogger Tina told us about some great deals in Travel Free Shops and this was one of them. She kindly bought one for me and sent it over, and I couldn't be happier to have a full size of it again.
I also got a back-up conditioner and I decided to go back to Dove and try one that I haven't before; their Reparatur-pflege Anti-Haarbruch (anti-breakage one).

Nail polish, nail file
I bought a bunch of nail stuff, and I also got the I ♥ Makeup Nail Geek polish in 32 Scrumptious from Makeup Revolution Slovenija (kot sem že omenila na Instagramu, imate do konca meseca priložnost izkoristiti 17% popust s kodo BLOG17). There'll be a full review on it.
I also decided to try the new Bourjois La Laque polishes and the only shade that caught my attention in the store was 7 Lycheers. Since then I saw swatches on other blogs and I now definitely want some other shades, as I really like the formula & longevity of it.
I had some coupons for Essie nail polishes so I finally got my hands on the two shades that I wanted from their Spring 2015 collection; Flowerista and Perennial Chic. Both of them are absolutely stunning.
I also wanted to get some more shades of the Essence The Gel nail polishes but all of those that I wanted were sold out in my nearest Müller, so I got the shade 37 Serendipity instead. I haven't tried it yet, but I can already tell I'll get a lot of wear out of it in the colder months. I also wanted to try out their new The Gel top & base coat, but I'm not quite sure how I feel about them yet, as I've only tried them once.
I also caught a complete bargain in Tuš Drogerija; a set of three nail files (2 glass/crystal ones & a nail buffer) for only 1,47€! They are from a brand called Lifetime Touch of Beauty and so far I really like them.

Artdeco Eye Brow Pencil in 06 is another repurchase (my third one, I think) and so is the Catrice Prime and Fine mattifying powder in Translucent which is probably my favourite setting powder ever. I kinda had a mini heart-attack when I couldn't find it in my local DM.
The second product I got from Asos  was the Bourjois Cream Blush in 01 Nude Velvet. I've been eyeing this up ever since I saw it over at Mateja's blog and now that I finally remember to get it, I'm not quite sure if I actually like the shade. I need to play around with it a bit more, since I've only wore it once.
And then some more Essence product; their 01 Glastonberry eyeshadow from TE Love & Sound and two more of their Longlasting lipliners in 06 A girl's dream and 03 Yummy Berry. I have yet to wear Yummy Berry, but I'm already in love with the other two products.
The last two products from the bunch were also a bargain. Some Manhattan products were marked down in Tuš Drogerija (they still are) and the Soft Mat Lipcreams were one of them. I already own one shade that I really like (56K) so I decided to pick up another one - 54L. I also just realised that this one and the A girl's dream lip pencil will look gorgeous together. And the other bargain was this Pro Fibre Cosmetic Brush from Ebay that looks and feels exactly like the Real Techniques Blush Brush. I especially love using it for my bronzer, but it also works great with blushes and setting powders.

Boots, makeup, skincare, hair
 And now onto the Boots order.
My main reason for it was to repurchase the Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray (I seriously can't imagine having curly hair without this) and potentially buy something that was on my wishlist. Truth be told, I was extremely overwhelmed with the whole process as there were just too many products that I wanted, and the site itself also isn't designed the best. I was putting products in & out of my basket for a week before I finally placed an order. Indecisiveness at its best.
Instead of buying two Volume & Bounce sprays, I decided to try the VO5 Give Me Texture dry texturising spray instead to see how they compare.
Since there was a 3 for 2 offer on selected hair products, I of course decided to get something else & after a bunch of contemplating, I finally settled on the Charles Worthington Strength & Repair longer & stronger hair masque. Since I like the spray so much, I have quite high hopes for this one.
The two Biore products were on my wishlist forever & since both of them were marked down, I decided to finally get them; Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser was 30% off and their Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips were 50% off. I'm really excited to try both of them.
Lastly, there was a 3 for 2 offer on Max Factor and I couldn't pass it by. I was planning on purchasing some more of their Creme Puff blushes here in Slovenia anyway, so why not get one for free and with the option to get shades that aren't available here. After looking up a ton of swatches, I decided to pick up the shades 10 Nude Mauve, 20 Lavish Mauve and 30 Gorgeous Berries. From these three, the Lavish Mauve is the only shade you can get here.
They also included a sample of the L'oreal Elvive Nutri-Gloss Luminiser high shine shampoo.

Nail polish swatches
 Here are swatches of the nail polishes; 
1 Nail Geek Scrumptious, 2 Bourjois Lycheers (also on the left on my nails), 3 Essence Serendipity, 4 Essie Perennial Chic (also on my nails) and 5 Essie Flowerista.

Makeup swatches
 And here are the make-up swatches.
On top are the Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes; 1 Nude Mauve, 2 Seductive Pink (only for comparison), 3 Lavish Mauve and 4 Gorgeous Berries.
5 Catrice Prime and Fine, 6 Bourjois Nude Velvet, 7 Essence Glastonberry, 8 Artdeco 6 eyebrow pencil, 9 Manhattan 54L, 10 Essence A girl's dream and 11 Essence Yummy Berry.

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to see any reviews?

  1. Ta marmelada me res mika, mogoče jo pa kupim, ker grem ta vikend na morje :) Jaz bi z veseljem videla ocene MaxFactors blushev, me mikajo, pa ne vem a naj kupim kakšnega al ne :D

    1. Jaz upam, da bo res tako dobra :D
      Ok super, si bom zapomnila. Drugače ti pa že zdaj namignem, da zame so definitivno vredni nakupa :D

  2. lakci za nohte soo wooow :3 essiji me prav mikajooo


    1. Potem jih pa pograbi dokler je še čas, ker so iz limited kolekcije :)

  3. Sami dobri nakupi, kot ponavadi. :))
    Joj, ti Max Factor blushi me takooo mikajo..ampak nekak nisem pripravljena odšteti polne cene. Tako da me zelo mika ta ''3 za 2'' akcija na Boots, sploh ker bi rada vsaj dva odtenka in med njimi je tudi tale Gorgeous Berries, ki se ne dobi pri nas + en ta nov Max Factor lip balm. <3 Upam, da se najde kdo za naročilo.
    Bi pa zelo rada prebrala oceno tega Vo5 spreja za lase, ker sem ga že videla v enem videu od Essie Button in me je že takrat zamikal. :D Pa seveda primerjavo le-tega z tistim od Charles W.

    1. Hvala Sandra :)
      No držim pesti, da se najdete...ker akcija je res super, sploh če želiš ta odtenek, ki ga ni pri nas.
      Primerjava teh dveh sprejev pa definitivno pride :)

  4. Me čudi da so swatchi Max Factorjevih blushev tako topli - bi si predstavljala bolj hladne tone :)
    Lakov že nisem kupila nekaj mesecev ampak...od Bourjois še poglej swatche na Google od Chair et tendre, paše na vsak ten :D obsedena!

    1. Ja, so vsi bolj topli odtenki, edino Lavish Mauve je bolj na hladni strani...
      Sploh ne govori, sem včeraj videla ta odtenek pri tebi na Instagramu in ga definitivno rabim *runs to the store* :D

  5. Mene pa ful zanima kako se ta Afroditina marmelada obnese. Sama kar težko porjavim, in potem vedno kakšne "pospeševalce" uporabljam, samo vsi ki so malo boljši in vsaj malo bolj delujejo so tudi dražji (v primerjavi s to marmelado). Tako, da upam da bo sončno vreme čim prej nazaj, da lahko preberemo še tvoje mnenje :)

    1. Mene tudi zanima kako se bo obnesla, sem jo iz čiste radovednosti kupila :)
      Bom poročala takoj ko jo parkrat uporabim :D

  6. Sami super nakupi, kje si pa kupila Biore? :)

    1. Biore sem pa naročila preko Boots International :)

  7. Ooh lovely purchases! I love the Charles Worthington texturising spray too! <3

    1. It's so amazing, I really can't imagine being without it :)

  8. I'm loving all the polishes you've picked for this month; I fluctuate throughout the summer between pastels and brights!

    1. I was always a bights person in Summer as well, but now I just want to wear nudes for some reason :D

  9. You've gotten some very lovely products! Those blushes are just gorgeous! xx

    1. They're amazing! Definitely worth buying :)
