April Beauty Haul

Monday, 7 May 2018

Ladies, today I am sharing my April Beauty Haul with all of you, with my most exciting purchases being the Sephora Favorites Sun Safety Kit and some goodies from France! I also picked up a few new launches from Maybelline, Urban Decay, essence and Catrice, some scented candles as well as some Demelan skincare, and a few other bits and bobs.

Demelan Review

When browsing through Clicks I saw this range of skincare from a brand called Demelan. The cream contains ingredients such as glycolic and kojic acid which are great for treating pigmentation, and the best part is that they are affordable! I also picked up the cleanser and sunscreen, and will see how it goes.

I also found a few new essence and Catrice goodies at Clicks and Dischem. The brushes and Highlighter Palette look stunning, and I can’t wait to try the Catrice Chrome Effect Polish.

When one of my friends from work went back to France for a holiday, I placed a L’Oreal order to be delivered to her! I managed to get two of the famous L’Oreal Balmain Lipsticks (I have an extra one for a giveaway), both of the Glam Beige Foundations, the La Vie En Glow Palette, as well as the Metallic Highlighter.

Loreal France Makeup

I also gave her a list of a few products to look out for, and she managed to get the Vichy Idealia Peeling Lotion and the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentrate. As part of my L’Oreal order I also picked up these Revitalift Laser X3 Peeling Pads.

Vichy Idealia

I mentioned in a recent post that I went for a manicure and my nails were painted with essie Angora Cardi, and I loved it so much I went to buy it, and here it is. I also bought another pack of clear invisibobbles (well I thought they were clear, but they have tiny pieces of glitter), this comes in a Trolls box that brings back so many childhood memories. I live in invisibobbles! I bought another Real Techniques Setting Brush, as I use it daily and have not found a replacement. I also bought these two travel sized brushes that have the same sized head but shorter handles.

Finally Ardell Wispies are available here, and although I struggle to apply fake lashes I really wanted to give these a try. So wish me luck!

I am quite happy with this months Sephora Play Box, mostly because of the Dr Dennis Gross, Kiehl’s and Philosophy samples. I am also a huge fan of Elizabeth James Nirvana!

The Maybelline Master Chrome and Fit Me Concealer is also finally available in SA. I also bought the Superstay Matte Ink, and I can’t wait for the new nude shades to launch. I got the palette and mascara as free gifts with my purchase.

When I saw this Urban Decay Kristen Leanne Beauty Beam Highlighter Palette and Vice Lipstick in Bun Bun I knew I had to have it. How stunning is the packaging too?

This Sephora Sun Safety Kit was such good value, I just had to get it, there are so many great products I want to try!

Sephora Sun Favorites

I have developed a slight obsession for scented candles! I have been so impressed with Heart & Home before, so I can’t wait to try Rambling Rose. I love the look of this Sarah Jane Sandalwood one too. Lastly, the Crabtree & Evelyn White Cardamom scent is out of this world amazing!

      I have signed up using PayPal to pay, and then get it shipped to my Aramex Address. It seems a bit hit and miss, as it worked for three people, but didn’t work for others.

      Hope you manage!

  22. Sharon says:
