I've been on my best behaviour lately and have refrained from spending copious amounts of money on makeup. Despite being on my quest to save I simply could not resist a cheeky purchase from Cherry Culture when tempted with 40% off. As much as I like to save, it's also nice to treat yourself once in a while (unlike last year when it was every week) to a few guilty pleasures. So let's get started with my first proper makeup haul of the year!
The main reason why I caved in to the sale was the fact I've been lusting over the Beauty Blender for over a year. Every time Cherry Culture have a 40% off sale I always seem to find out late and therefore most of the items I want to purchase are already sold out. This time around I was determined not to be stuck in that situation again and quickly snapped up The Original Beauty Blender Double the Sponge pack.
I'm very excited to give the Beauty Blender a try and see what everyone (and their mothers) have been raving about. On first impressions though, they were a little smaller in person than what I was expecting.
I didn't want to go totally overboard in this haul but I wanted to make the most of the 40% off - which is technically evens out the terrible shipping costs Cherry Culture have in place. So the next items I knew I had to get were the Miliani Baked Blushes. Every time I see these in the blogosphere/Instagram and I always fall in love with them. The shade range is impeccable and the packaging looks incredibly chic. I honestly couldn't decide which shades to pick from as they all looked marvelous. I ended up going with their most popular shades: Dolce Pink, Rose D'Oro & Fantastico Mauve.
And last but not least I picked up two NYX Butter Lip Glosses in the shades Peaches & Cream and Red Velvet. I've loved every single lip product I've purchased from NYX so I knew this would also be a hit. I'm a little disappointed now with the shades I picked up, I wish I went for more plum/mauve shades instead of just a pink and red.
So that's the end of my haul - let me know if you would like to see reviews on any of the items above!
