BEAUTY JOINT // Haul #005 + First Impressions [Feat. e.l.f., NYX, Milani, Wet N Wild, L.A. Girl + China Glaze]Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Because my obsessions with Beauty Joint grows more and more with every order I make, I've now decided to start numbering my hauls from the site. I'm unsure if this is a good or bad thing, because it just shows how much online shopping I do... but it also makes for good archiving! So if you are really interested you can see the other hauls here - 001, 002, 003, and 004. This haul was a joint one with my sister as it made shipping a little cheaper and I will be sharing the items she decided to pick up tomorrow, as it'll make a nice change from all the usual stuff I like to buy [i.e. pink lipsticks, blushes and eye shadow palettes].
So many beautiful products!
e.l.f. Essential Lipstick in Flirtatious // USD $1.99
This was a total Shaaanxo inspired purchase (which she used in this video here) and it's one of the first e.l.f. Essential lipsticks I have bought. This is from their cheaper line, and from the packaging you can definitely tell. I like that you can see the actual colour through the centre part of the tube, but I'm not sure if I just got a dud but the actual tube is SO hard to wind up. Apart from that I really like the colour, almost a coral but leans more pink, and it swatches quite sheer initially but it can be built up. It smells good too, very much like the Jordana lipsticks!
e.l.f. Studio Small Tapered Brush // USD $3.99
You know I love these Studio brushes so I picked up another one (my aim is to get them all); this is the Small Tapered Brush and is slightly smaller than the Blush Brush and a touch longer in the bristles. These brushes are so soft and amazing quality!
Milani Baked Powder Blush in 11 Bella Rosa // USD $7.99
I have the famed Luminoso blush from Milani and it is all kinds of gorgeous, so I've been eyeing up a few more. This takes pigmentation to a whole other level so I can imagine only a very, very light hand will be needed!
Wet N Wild Color Icon Eye Shadow Trio in Silent Treatment // USD $3.99
If you haven't tried Wet N Wild eyeshadows, you need to right now! They are amazing quality, buttery smooth and the pigmentation is beautiful! This trio has a gorgeous trio of colours, and the 'eyelid' shade is just... wow, you need to get this!
Wet N Wild Mega Last Matte Lipsticks in Bare It All, Just Peachy + Rose-Bud // USD $2.75 [each]
Youtubers have such a huge influence on my buying decisions and these were an It's Judy Time inspired purchase. These seem really great and I will have a full review of these shades coming soon!
L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Babydoll, Blushing + Bombshell // USD $3.29 [each]
If you're up with your beauty knowledge you might recognise these as looking fairly similar to the Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks, except these are about $16 cheaper! I've read a few reviews on these so had to get some to try and I'll have a full post with swatches of these soon, as they are pretty darn stand-out!
NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Narcissus // USD $4.00
The choice of shades in these NYX lipsticks is immense, there is so many to choose from! I went in blind with this choice and just went off the swatches on the site but I am really pleased with the colour! These glide on really easily, very creamy with good pigmentation.
China Glaze Surprise Collection Polishes in Create A Spark + Glimmer More // USD $3.99
When I saw this collection, I just knew that I was going to love these, and boy, do I! These are super chunky glitters but there is something about the colour combos that are amazing! They seem to have good glitter to clear polish, which gives good coverage on the nail.
e.l.f Studio Acne Fighting Foundation in Buff // USD $7.99
Another Shannon inspired purchase is this foundation; I was sold on it after she did a first impressions on it. I definitely went for the wrong shade and is a bit to dark for me so I'll be ordering the lighter one and hopefully that will be a better match!
As you can tell, I really love Beauty Joint, they ship worldwide and shipping is based on weight, so be wary of that when ordering. Shipping is super quick, it usually arrives in a week, two weeks at a max.
