Recent Beauty Haul – Afforable Finds

recent beauty haulMy most recent beauty haul contains products that are all under $6.  So, for around $15 I got 1 lip gloss, 1 Lipstick, Mascara & 5 eyeshadow.

L.A. Colors moisturizing glossy lips Sheer lip gloss – LG832 Pink Icing

This lip gloss is glossy, light pink and has a nice sheen to it.  If you put too much of it on though it can leave your lips feeling sticky, so careful with that.  I do actually find it moisturizing though.  It contains10ml of product and is in a squeeze tube.  L.A. Colors is a cruelty free company.

NYX Lipstick – Lip Du Jour

When it comes to lipsticks I prefer the color pink most of the time or a nude. This combines the best of both worlds and is a light almost nude pink.  It does have light sparkles, but nothing over powering.  It comes in you basic lipstick container that has the twist up bottom.  It’s not very moisturizing, so I like to pair it up with a moisturizing gloss.

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Curve Alert – 001 Black

I’m a fan of Rimmel London beauty products for the most part and I don’t mind the price. It was a toss up between this one and one other Rimmel London one, but in the end I grabbed Scandal Eyes. The applicator is large and I just love the size of it. It’s easy to coat your entire lashes in one sweep. I like very dramatic eyelashes though so, I did a few coats. It didn’t get clumpy on me or dry and flake off. This one is not water proof though so, if that’s what your looking for you should check out a different one. Otherwise it does the job just fine.

L.A. Colors – EP42 Wildflowers

recent beauty haulThis was a spur of the moment buy and only cost $2.50. So, I decided to give it a try. The package is very basic and contains 5 eyeshadow. Each one has sparkle finish to them which on the back is described as “Metallic.”  The texture is nice and I find it easy to apply.  They all are pigmented enough for my liking and you can build the color by applying more and using a eyeshadow base.  I don’t recommend the sponge applicator though because I never have much luck with them and I prefer using my own brushes.  The 5 colors go together nicely.  I ran out of day light for the swatches pictures, so I’ll be back with them and make some looks with this Wildflowers palette.  Also, just like the lip gloss it is cruelty free.
