Summertime= Haul time. Enough said. No better way to kick off summer than to collect some brand spankin' new essentials, in my opinion. Here's what I've shopped for recently!
Starting off with my favorite- makeup ofcourse. I had been on the hunt for the perfect cheerful fuschia pink for what seems like an eternity, but I finally found one from the recently launched Gel collection by Essence cosmetics. If you have an Essence counter nearby, I highly recommend that you visit and check out the latest goodies. They have some pretty neat new additions to their kiosk including the So Glow highlighter that I picked up along with the nail color. I went back just yesterday and picked up more stuff from their new line and I have to say it's all quite impressive! I also picked up a random Ivory colored nail polish from Beaute collection. I have never seen this brand before but the polish is quite nice and a couple of Becute lipsticks that I've been hearing so much about. They resemble the DazzMatazz lipsticks featured on Just4girls.pk so perhaps these are sister brands, but I'm not entirely sure. Last but not the least, I ordered the Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Express to quench my mascara thirst!
Ofcourse, that couldn't possibly be all. I was tempted to order the PKR 1000 Mystery Bag deal from Sehrish Rashid. Quite an exciting experience, I highly recommend ordering from her. I cannot wait to try out the Hourglass foundation and the Coola BB Cream looks great to throw into a travel makeup bag for the summer. I also got a Tarte pencil liner in the shade Charcoal which is quite nice! It's got a slightly satin finish which really brings out the grey tone but I'm not entirely sure if I'll get much use out it since I'm not a pencil liner person. Also received the e.l.f Matte Lip Color I've always been a fan of- I own the color Praline which is a said dupe of the MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick- in the shade Tea Rose, which again I'm not entirely certain if I'll use at all because the shade is not my cup of tea (pun intended). Pretty stoked about the Atelier cologne sample which smells rather divine and spot on like summer in a tiny vial, and how super cute is the post card that comes with it! I have it up on my office wall because it is so interesting to look at!
I also replenished some of my bath/hair/skin stuff. I always find that it's good to switch to a different shower gel every now and then but especially in the summertime because trying a new one feels quite invigorating. I got the NIVEA Powerfruit Delight Shower Gel in the Goji Berry version. However, for shampoo I like to stick to my staple Herbal Essences line- I switch between the Hello Hydration, Totally Twisted and the Body Envy versions. Absolutely love these! Finally managed to pick up the much hyped Lolane Hair Treatment mask and I have to say I agree with the hype completely! Lastly, I got my favorite makeup wipes, for the lazy summer days- the Pure Age Defiance wipes. Totally sasta, miyari and effective.
Also got these Living Proof shampoo and styling cream samples- which are pretty darn generously sized to be honest- from a previous Sephora order. Just thought I'd mention these alongside other hair stuff!
That's all for this haul. Hope you enjoyed! <3 Happy summer hauling!
