Holiday 2018 Haul

December 13, 2018 | Beauty | 8 Comments »

Purchased By Me

It’s that time of year where I share my haul from the holiday season. I decided to change up the format a bit. The titles will directly link to my blog post if I have reviewed the product already. The link right next to it will take you directly to the product in case it’s something you want to purchase. I’m surprised how well I did with reviewing products before sharing my haul. The only products that haven’t been linked to a review are essentials. I’ve talked about them enough. The Sugarpill Cosmetics lipstick and Ulta ColourPop palette will be reviewed soon. So keep an eye out for those.

Who can resist Sephora’s sales this time of year? I usually get what I need/want during the 20% OFF event and by the time the $20.00 OFF coupon rolls around I have no use for it.

Sephora Favorites Lash Party | Purchase (In JCP Sephora Stores)
I’ve been wanting to try one of the Sephora Favorites sets for a while. After running low on mascara samples I figured it was the perfect time to try one.

Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator | Purchase
I used to get the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, but apparently it’s been discontinued. I was told this is the same exact thing. However, the ingredients appear to be different. If anyone can weigh in on this I would greatly appreciate it. I swear I just purchased the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief just a few months ago. How can it be discontinued?

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper | Purchase
My go-to liner. I purchase a few every year.

Kat Von D Brow Struck Dimension Powder | Purchase
I’m going through a really bad brow phase and have decided to test every single product and every single shade until I can get my brows to look like… well… brows. I heard this powder was good and it’s one of the few I haven’t tried yet.

Fenty Beauty Flyliner Longwear Liquid Eyeliner in Cuz I’m Black | Purchase
I decided to try something new this year and ended up being let down. Sadly this eyeliner did not work for me.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color in Unveil and Uncuffed | Purchase
I just had to try a few of the Stunna Lip Paints. Thankfully I had much better luck with these. Uncuffed is beautiful!

Holiday 2018 Haul


Beautylish had a great deal going on where you spend $100.00 you get $20.00 in credit to use later on. How can you not take advantage of that? I was hoping to stock up on some of The Ordinary products, but they didn’t have any in stock. So instead of stocking up on essentials I decided to take this as a sign and treat myself.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eyeshadow Palette | Purchase
The moment I saw this palette I knew I had to make it mine. I’m glad I did because she sure is beautiful!

Too Faced The Sweet Smell of Christmas Melted Matte Lipstick Set | Purchase
This was a bit of an impulse buy. I’ve been wanting to try some of the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks and thought this cute, festive set was the perfect introduction. It was.

IT Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment | Purchase
My go-to lip balm. I purchase one every year.

Sugarpill Cosmetics Liquid Lip Color in Pillow Fight | Purchase
After seeing a swatch of this on Instagram I had to make it mine. It reminded me of Trinket and I absolutely love Trinket.

Holiday 2018 Haul

Bath By Bex

I couldn’t wait to order from this super cute shop. They have the cutest bath bombs and offer a nice variety of CBD infused products.

CBD Lavender Vanilla Lip Scrub | Purchase
I ended up really loving the lip scrub. I’ll definitely repurchase. I do wish there were more flavor options though. But the Lavender Vanilla does smell amazing!

CBD Coconut Lip Balm | Purchase
The lip balm is also really nice. It’s nicely moisturizing and smells so good.

CBD Infused Bath Bomb (Zombie Bomb, Staycation, Sexy Time, Siren’s Blood) | Purchase
It’s too bad Zombie Bomb was a seasonal option. It was amazing and I wish I had gotten more. Thankfully I have a few others to try out. I highly recommend trying their bath bombs. They are wonderful, can be customized to fit your needs, and are fairly priced.

Holiday 2018 Haul

The Body Shop

While I do love my CBD infused bath bombs, those are strictly for special occasions. On a regular day I use other bath bombs/products. The Body Shop is one of my favorite spots to stock up. Especially around the holidays. They always have the cutest stuff.

Bath Bomb (Berry Bonbon, Peppermint Candy Cane, Vanilla Marshmallow) | Purchase
I just had to try these new festive bath bombs. They were too cute to pass up.

Moringa Bath Bubble | Purchase
Sky Organics is what actually got me into bubble scoops/bars and I swear they have the best ones around. But I still can’t pass up the Moringa Bath Bubble. It smells amazing! It’s one of the nicest smelling bubble bars I’ve ever used.

Bath Bomb (Green Tea, Mango) | Purchase
I always get a bunch of these mini bath bombs. They’re so small and cute. And they all smell so good!

Holiday 2018 Haul


My Holiday Haul post would not be complete without a little ColourPop.

Flying Colours Liquid Lipstick Vault | Purchase
This was the only item from their holiday collection that caught my eye. I’m so glad that I got it. It has so many fun shades to play with. They can be layered to create even more fun shades/looks. There’s definitely something for everyone in here.

Ooh La La! Pressed Powder Shadow Palette | Purchase
I don’t know what I love more. The Liquid Lipstick Vault or the Ooh La La! Pressed Powder Shadow Palette.

Precision Brow Pencil in Black N’ Brown | Purchase
I don’t know why I keep trying these types of brow products. They’re obviously meant for people who already have brows and only require a little defining and filling in, or artists who can make something beautiful out of nothing. Neither of which apply to me. Nothing can help me. My brows are doomed.

ColourPop Rendezvous Palette


I don’t share a lot from Ulta because I have one local store and the employees there are horrible! I prefer to purchase my makeup in person so that I can test it out first. Since the employees there make this very difficult I just stay away. I don’t need that kind of negativity in my life. But after learning that they were carrying a ColourPop palette that was exclusive to them I had to break my ban and make it mine.

ColourPop Rendezvous Eyeshadow Palette | Purchase
Did I really need yet another ColourPop palette? Actually, yes. Yes I did. I regret nothing.

That’s pretty much all of it. I also got some clothes. I’ll also be getting some new boots just as soon as I decide on a pair. What did you haul this holiday season?
