November Beauty Haul

November was a good beauty month, especially with all the sales going on! So, let me share my November Beauty Haul with you.

Laura Geller Swirl Trio Review

I have wanted to try the Laura Geller Baked Gelato Highlighters for ages, and when I saw this trio, I knew it had to be mine, it is perfect to try out 3 different shades. The palette is a bit smaller than I expected, but I am happy with this purchase none the less. I am also so glad I got a Replica Fragrance sample, I have been intrigued by these scents since I first read about it, this one is Lazy Sunday Morning. If you haven’t heard of Replica yet, it is the “reproduction of familiar scents and moments of varying locations and periods”.

Kevyn Aucoin South Africa

I also ordered 2 sets from Sephora, from Kevyn Aucoin and Korres. I’ve wanted to try the Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder and the Korres Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial for quite a while, and these sets were the perfect chance. I really love these sets from Sephora, they are always such great value for money, and a chance to try a few products from different brands.

I am also waiting for 3 other Sephora orders that I placed recently, so keep an eye out for that in my December Beauty Haul!

Sephora December Play Box

My November Sephora Play Box was pretty cool this month too, the Caudalie Sorbet and Glamglow Mask are both products that I am excited to try! I am glad I also got another sample of the Replica perfume, By the Fireplace.

MAC Sweet Copper Face Compact

Next up is the Sweet Copper Face Compact from the MAC Nutcracker Holiday Collection. This compact has a rusty blush called Pleasure Model, and of course the golden highlighter Whisper of Gilt. By the way, the dazzling MAC Mariah Carey Collection is available online, and I have already ordered the Extra Dimension Skin Finish and blush in Sweet Sweet Fantasy. The Extra Dimension Skin Finish is a must in my opinion, it is stunning, and more affordable than the permanent product! Also, it is $45 in the US, and only R410 here in South Africa. And, for once we received a collection before the US, so take advantage!

OFRA cosmetics south africa

I also bought some new Ofra Cosmetics products during their Black Friday Sale. They have an online store now, that is quick and easy to order from. I previously bought a couple of their liquid lipsticks and highlighters at the Pro Beauty Expo a while ago and I was really impressed by them, so why not add to my stash!

Urban Decay Durban Capetown South Africa

The Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Sin has been on my wishlist for quite a while. I was sent Fireball to review a while back, and it was so buttery and glowy, that I knew I had to add Sin to my collection.

I swear there is not one month that goes by that I don’t buy a new NYX product! I found some new shades of the Soft Matte Lip Cream, and Cannes is one of them!

Catrice highlighter palette

Catrice Contourious

There are some new Catrice Beauties, but I won’t go into much detail, since I did a full post on the New essence and Catrice Launches.

matt lipgloss

essence also came out with a bunch of new products, and a Christmas Collection, so check out all the details here.

Lipstick Holder

I finally found the essence Make me Brow in the darkest shade, I am really looking forward to trying it and seeing how it compares to Benefit Gimme Brow. The Palladio Concealer has a yellow undertone that looks like it might be perfect for under-eye circles.

I bought this cute acrylic lipstick holder from Dischem, it was quite cheap, I think R60. I like that you can also use the bottom section for other products, I have my concealer and corrector pots in there.

The Body Shop Christmas Collection 2016

Oh, The Body Shop Christmas Collection warms my heart, especially the Vanilla Chai range. I also bought 2 shades of the new Matte Lip Liquids. I have a full review of the new launches from The Body Shop, they are good!

Spa Of the World Candles

I also bought 2 of the new Spa Of the World Candles, Oils of Life Eye Cream Gel and a Pinita Colada Body Butter.

New Freeman Face Masks

And for some skincare, I found these new Freeman Masks at Dischem.

Freeman Beauty Infusion Masks

I also found these Freeman Beauty Infusion Masks, they are serum-infused masks, and look so promising. There is also a Cleansing Clay Mask, but I have only seen it in a sachet for some reason. And, a Brightening Overnight Mask that I haven’t seen yet.


Lastly, I bought the Retail Box Secret Box 29. I also bought the Power and Nano invisibobbles. I love invisibobbles, I literally live in them, and the Power and Nano ones look great.

Can anyone say Spending Ban!
