August Haul

Hey guys, so I’ve bought so many things during this month and received stuff as it was my birthday. So I’ve decided to write about a few of the things I bought and got given.




I recently bought 2 acrylic lipstick holders from ebay. I’m definitely needing a few more to put the rest of my lipsticks away. However I love them, they keep my lipsticks looking neat and tidy! And they’re only £3 each!!




Also I was in HomeBargains the other day and I came across these storage containers, they were only 59p each. I’ve used them to store away my earrings and rings.



I picked up 5 Revlon lip glosses, I’m a big fan of their lip glosses as they’re not sticky on the lips and they last a good few hours.
I picked up Fatal Apple, which is an orange red. Bejewelled, which is a very light pink. Embellished, which is a deep purple and it has little specks of glitter which adds a nice sparkle on the lips. Also there is Sizzle which is an orange gloss. And then there’s Strawberry, which is a pink lipgloss with specks of glitter.
Bejewelled, Embellished and Sizzle are all new shades and they just recently came out.


Personally I don’t like full size bottles, if there are travel sizes then I’m most likely to go for them. So I recently picked up my usual Urban Decay Oil Control Setting Spray. I just love this, after applying my make up I spray this on my face and it keeps my make up looking matte all day.
Also Mac Fix Plus and the Mac Oil Control Lotion, which keeps my oily skin under control.


I picked up the Smash Box Try It Kit. I only really bought it for the the lip gloss and eye pencil. The other products I’m not really keen on as I’ve tried the Photo Finish Primer in the past and it was just too oily, and its supposed to be oil free. Also the mascara ain’t all that, I’ve tried better and then there’s the Eye Lid Primer, which doesn’t really make a difference on how my eyeshadow looks.


I also bought the Maybelline BB Cream foundation in medium the oil free one as I already have the normal one. I use the BB cream near enough everyday, it’s such a lightweight foundation and it still has a decent coverage.
I’ve stalked up on the Fast & Fruity nail polish remover, I literally just put my finger into the tub and as I take my finger out the nail polish has disappeared. No need to rub on your fingers or spend ages taking nail polish off.
I also picked up the Benefit They’re Real, just because you get a travel size free! I love this mascara it’s so good but I feel like I need to wait till it dries up a bit just to get a good use out of it.
I also picked up another shade in the   Maybelline colour tattoo.
I also got given 2 sets of Body Shop products for my birthday. I was actually going to buy myself a few thing from Body Shop as I was running low but then I got treated to them which is even better.




I also got treated to all the Real Technique make up brushes for my birthday apart from the Duo Fibre ones which I’m not really a fan of. However I’m in love with these brushes, they’re so soft on the skin and they blend your make up in so well. My favourite brushes have to be the Expert Face brush, which I use to apply liquid foundation, the Powder brush and the Contour brush which puts the product precisely where you want it.





I love Maybelline lipsticks, they have to be the only drugstore lipstick which has the best formula. I’ve got a few of their lipsticks however I had to get a few vibrant colours. The ones I picked up are Fuchsia Flash which is exactly like Mac Candy Yum Yum however this one is creamier. Pleasure Me Red which is a flattering deep red, Velvet Beige, which is a creamy nude. Then there’s Hollywood Red which is my favourite, this lipstick has hints of purple, hints of pink and red. It is such a flattering colour.
So this is my August Haul, I hope you enjoyed reading it. Also if you’re wanting to know what I got for my birthday, why not let me know on twitter? @sophsali_x
