Some Fun Beauty Purchases
I took unofficial break from buying beauty products for a bit because I bought a lot in the fall and early winter. After the New Year I ordered a few goodies but didn’t have an opportunity to take decent pics and write about them until after our move!
I decided to get three of the new BFF Mascaras: Black on Black, Blue Ya Mind, and Purple Prose. At $8 a pop, why not?! To get to that free shipping minimum I decided to get a few additional items. Some Super Shock Shadows were on sale for $2.50 apiece, so I ordered two: Falling Up and ZZZ. I also ordered two single Pressed Powder Shadows ($4 apiece): Wishful Winking and Antimatter.
ColourPop threw in a bonus with mascara orders—a Fourth Ray cleansing duo that included a mini AM to the PM Gel Cleanser and BFD Cleansing Oil. Fourth Ray is ColourPop’s new-ish sister skin care line; strangely, I hardly ever see people talk about it on Instagram. Clearly they want to get the ball rolling a little faster with buzz about their products. I’ve been interested in trying Fourth Ray so I was excited to receive these minis!
The Quick Flick
Another fun product I ordered last month is The Quick Flick Eyeliner Stamp. This is an Australian product that I’ve seen some of my beauty Instagram buddies post about. I’ve been wanting to try a winged eyeliner stamp so I decided to order this one!
They offer several options and I went with the limited edition To the Point version in Intense Black. The box contains two eyeliner stamp pens. One pen has a wing for the right eye and the other has a wing for the left eye. Each pen is dual-ended, with a wing on one end and a more traditional eyeliner marker on the other end so you can complete the look. I used a 10% off first-time order code, so the total cost including shipping was $36.50 AUS ($26.40 USD). Shipping took a couple weeks, but that’s to be expected since they had to ship internationally.
Last but not least is a pack of three Face Halos, which are reusable makeup removers. I’ve seen beauty fans rave about these so I wanted to try them for myself! A three-pack cost $22 (shipping was free) and each remover is washable and reusable for up to 200 wash cycles.
Face Halos are made of nontoxic microfiber. All you do is wet them and gently wipe your makeup off. They’re machine washable and can also be hand washed with soap and water—so they’re a much more eco-friendly alternative to cotton balls or pads. I haven’t been wearing much makeup lately, but I am really looking forward to trying these because I’ve heard such great things!
I’ll write reviews of these products once I’ve actually had the chance to use them. Skin care is basically the only beauty activity happening in my life at the moment but I’ll get back into the more fun stuff (makeup) soon!
Have you tried any of these products and if so, what do you think of them?
