Back in December on my holiday season haul post, I mentioned ordering a few more stuff from e.l.f. that weren’t due to arrive until late January to early February. What I didn’t mention, though, is the fact that I ordered some new lip products from ColourPop.
Well, I guess I really can’t keep myself from purchasing at least a single tube of lipstick for at least 3 months.
But then again, who could blame me? Fucking ColourPop released their newest line of lip products called Lux Velvet Matte Lipstick and they’re just all absolutely gorgeous that I ended up ordering six tubes. I also ordered three of their Lippie Stix that I used to dislike but because the cousin convinced me that it now has a better formula (I got my first batch of these years ago on their first launch), I didn’t see the harm in trying them again.
Self-control, where art thou????
Because I only purchased two lip products on my first e.l.f. haul, I decided to get a few more on my second seeing as I liked what I got then.
Of course, these are matte lipsticks — Liquid Matte Lipstick in Blushing Rose and Tea Rose plus the Velvet Matte Lipstick in Deep Burgundy which I got for a serious steal (less than PHP100)!
Another worthy purchase was this Shape & Stay Brow Pencil (the clear one) that really helps with my stray brow hairs that just would not stay put no matter what I do!
But one that was not worthy of anything was this Volumizing Mascara (not on the photo because I threw it away already) that I hoped would at least work for a while until I get myself a new one. But nah, I didn’t even get a chance to give it a try because the damn thing was all dried up when it got to me! Not sure if it was a defective product from the get-go or if the whole fiasco happened during the shipping.
Either way, it sucked.
My redeeming purchases though were the e.l.f. Cream Blush Palette in Soft and the Cheek Cream & Powder Brush which were both incredibly amazing.
I never thought I’d like cream blushes this much because while I did love my Chanel cream blush, I didn’t like it as much as I liked this palette! And this one’s not even a quarter of how much the Chanel one cost!
Now for my ColourPop haul. Well, I think we all know by now how much I love ColourPop. I have featured one too many products of theirs on this blog so that should be a hint for y’all.
But what’s different about this haul is that I got six from their new line of lipsticks instead of purchasing from the usual Ultra Matte and Ultra Satin lines.
So I got the ColourPop Lux Lipstick in Angel City, Appy, Lay Over, Money Side Up, Pinkies Up and Still Crazy.
I also got myself another three from their Lippie Stix Matte and Matte X lines in the shades Sike, Daydream, and After Shock. I also ordered one from their Ultra Satin line but I ended up giving it to my cousin since she begged me for it. LOL.
Okay, seriously, self, stop purchasing new lip products already!
