April Beauty Haul 2015

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

This month has been truly amazing. I attended an event and also received quite a few things to review, plus I won some wonderful goodies. I also bought a few bits that I knew I would use or I really wanted.



Essence TE Love & Sound - 01 Crowd Gone Wild Matt Lipstick
Absolutely adore this shade of lipstick and also it is matt so it will last longer on my lips, especially in hot summer days. Review here. And look how summery is this picture, right (with my favorite bag & headband) ?

Rimmel: Stay Matte Pressed Powder (004 sandstorm), Liquid Mousse Foundation (100 ivory) & Stay Blushed liquid cheek tint (003 peach flush)
I said I wasn't going to buy anything, however I hit the pan on my Stay Matte powder and was looking for any easier option than ordering it from feelunique.com. Then I found Rimmel on disim.si for real cheap and decided to pick up two more products. I'll let you know how they perform, however not any time soon since I have a lot of products to review firstly.

L'oreal Casting Sunkiss Jelly (Light Brown to Dark Blonde)
I've been eyeing this one for a long time and I finally remembered to buy it. They only had this one for dark hair so I don't know how it will work. I'll use it up anyways and report the details.

Eho colour setting foam - Glowing red
Since I went to another Tigi seminar I got my hair cut short and also they put a bit of rose highlights in it. Any shade of pink is not my favorite color, however this really does look nice on my hair. If you've had pastel hair before you know how quickly it washes off and soon mine will too and because I'm not willing to color my hair again, I bought this red color thinking it would turn to a rose/light pinky shade on my blond hair. And yes it totally does that which is great. It washes of each time you wash your hair but it's cheap tough.

Barbara Hofmann Makeup egg (sponge from Müller)
Finally I got myself this little tool. I kind of dislike makeup sponges since to me they take quite a lot of time to apply my makeup on, however the finish is always nice. Some are quite expensive and I'm not willing to order it online, so when I found this one in Müller I instantly bought it (well my friend recommended it to me as well). It was 3€ and feels quite nice.

Essence Studio Nails Jelly Pearls Hydrating Gel
A long time ago some slovenian beauty bloggers recommended this for really dry, split nails and I totally forgot to pick it up. Finally I bought it and it seems really nice as it sinks into your nails really quick.

Pr products

Vichy Skin Sleep
I'm really thankful that I got to attend their launch of new addition to their skincare called Skin Sleep. You'll soon read about it.
Another company that decided to "collaborate". I received three makeup items from Luxe line which you'll see really soon.

Nivea: IN- Shower Q10 Firming Body Lotion  & BB Cream 5 in 1 Beautifying Moisturiser Light
People from Nivea kindly surprised me twice this month. I really wasn't expecting to receive any of these, so I'm really grateful. Anyways, I have to mention that this BB cream is suppossed to be mattifying which is great, but you'll soon read about it.

Bourjois Aqua Laque liquid lipstick & La Laque nail polish
Another happy moment this month. Some slovenian beauty bloggers got the chance to exclusively try out new products from Bourjois. Lipstick launches at the start of May & nailpolish at the end of May/beginning of June. I'll write about them as soon as they launch and come to our stores !


La Roche Posay - Thermal Spring Water, Physiological Micellar Solution, Hydreane Legere, Anthelios XL Sun Protection face cream 50+ & Lipikar Baume AP+ body lotion
In their "charity" giveaway I won this amazing bunch of products. I'm mostly excited about Thermal Water since it was on my wishlist for a long, long time.

Part 1: Teint Ideal Illuminating foundation, Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Calming cleansing Micellar solution & Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum

Finally this prize arrived arrived after three months and they also kindly included a gorgeous makeup bag (missing on the picture) filled two samples on the right and some more in the booklet. It should've containted Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Cleanser, however they send micellar water which I'll use anyway. I hope I report soon about how I get along with these products. And yes I'm really thankful to try all those gorgeous products.
Part 2: Normaderm Purifying Cleansing Gel, Normaderm Hydrating cream & Idealia Life Serum
And another prize in which I got to pick my favorite Vichy routine. Ofcourse I decided on Normaderm line for my oily skin. I picked Total Mat, however they send me the usual Normaderm cream, which I'm also happy about because it's really similar and I've used it before for three years. They also recommended this Idealia Serum so we'll see how it works out.

Tangle Teezer & Beauty UK Urban girl nail polish set
Won on Low Maintenance Beauty blog (thank you girl !). Tangle Teezer is going with me on any trips even tough I have short hair now !
Essence nailpolishes & eyeshadow
Won on Lana's Fairytale blog

John Frieda Leave in conditioner
I've seen a lot of bloggers receiving this one, so I was intrigued. It should be really useful and exciting since I haven't had any John Frieda products before.

Garnier Miracle eye cream & Ultimate beauty oil
I seem to have a lot of luck with Garnier. I've heard good things about this beauty oil so we'll see how it works.

p.s. If you have any wishes what I should review first, let me know down below :)

Love and Lemons, Simona

  5. Ooo, koliko izdelkov ki jih nisem uporabljala že celo večnost, ker jih tukaj ni.. Neverjetno... Mogoče boljše da ne gledam več vas beauty bloggerk, ker mi s takimi izdelki, na katere sem bila sama navajena, delate lušte. :D Tukaj je žal res zelo malo znamk... Te pa morem vprašat, kaj te fotografije so tvoje?
