Haul time! I bought some more items from ColourPop recently plus some refills of my favourite Oyin Handmade products and I wanted to share with you. It’s summer and I am on the lookout bold lips and long wearing ability. I actually filmed a video unboxing of what I got.
If you love video, check out the unboxing below:
Here are the pictures and swatches:
Haul: ColourPop Cosmetics
I picked up 3 eye shadows, 5 lip colours, including their recently released Matte X formula and 2 of their new eyebrow pencils. Lets see how these swatch on dark skin. Links to the products will also be included.
Last week, Sephora had it’s biannual sale for all it’s Beauty Insiders. Since I am VIB status, I was able to get 15% off of my entire purchase. If you don’t know what the Sephora Beauty Insider programme is, check out this link. It is basically a rewards programme that allows you to accumulate points to redeem samples of new or popular products. I am #TeamSkincare as they say ‘black don’t crack’, but you still have to put in the work and I am trying to stave off the effects of aging as much as possible! So I have a Sephora haul and even did a video about it!!
Back in the day, before I even decided to go back to natural hair, I did a lot of research on new products that I could use. I was a member of a number of natural hair discussion boards, as there were not that many blogs available at that time. This is how I discovered that I could cleanse my hair without sulphates and they (the sulphates) were probably the cause of the intense itching and dryness that I felt while shampooing. One of the most widely mentioned brands for cleansers was from Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve Company. Chagrin Valley makes a variety of handmade soaps for hair and body as well as body balms made with shea butter and herbal rinses. I definitely wanted to explore the world of sulphate-free, natural shampoos, so I filed this name in my memory bank.
Fast forward to earlier this year and I wanted to try some new products. I have been loving my SheaMoisture but, you know, the product junkie in me. Browsing the site, there are a lot to choose from, depending on what you are looking for, the ingredients that you like, scents etc. They sell their full sized bars as well as sample sizes, which is great! I ended up choosing 2 full sized bars; the Babassu Marsh Mallow Shampoo Bar and the Butter Bar Conditioner Shampoo Bar. I’ve always wanted to try hair teas to make detangling easier so I picked up the trial size of the Hair Tea Detangler Blend.
I ordered my items on a Monday night and I had a box waiting for me on Thursday! And this was the cheapest shipping option! Here’s my haul.
Word on the street is that Sephora is having their annual Friends & Family sale which gives 20% off of everything online only. You have to visit this website and enter your email address to get the secret code.
So you get 20% off a single purchase, online at Sephora.com, from Oct 20 – Nov 2, 2011. The code can only be used once, so choose wisely!
I am looking at some Illamasqua polishes, mascara, skincare products! What are you getting?
