May is here! Time to look back my into April beauty buys (as per my usual habit). I always aim to leave my beauty shopping loots to the last day of the month to unbox, but I ALWAYS FAIL. My curiosity and impatience always get the better of me, and I ended up unboxing those items that excite me the most! Therefore, you may have already seen some of the following purchases throughout the month in my Instagram feed. #faithyHaul
The month's haul mainly consists of babies from Sephora and Bella Box. (For the benefit of my international readers, Bella Box Singaore is an online beauty box subscription service where we place a monthly order of a box of unknown beauty product trial kits by different brands, as an attempt to play Santa to ourselves.) Bella Box has a 60%-off closing down sale last week so I just had to find something to buy! Anyway, below is a list of stuff that I got from....
1. Too Face Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar
2. Too Faced Natural Eyes
3. Benefit Bronze 'n' Dandy Set
4. Make Up For Ever Step 1 Smoothing Primer
5. NYX Lip Butter in Lollies
6. NYX Lip Butter in Hot Tamale
7. Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Hunny Bunny
8. Sephora Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner
9. Sephora Kiss Me Balm in Cotton Candy
10. Burt's Bee Replenishing Lip Balm With Pomegranate Oil
And from Bella Box:
|1. Sleek MakeUp Dip It Duo Liner Mascara in Jet Black|
|2. ModelCo Designer Brow Kit|
|3. bellabox Pout Pencil in Pinky Promise|
I also bought two Catrice eyeshadow brushes from Guardian Singapore, which will be shown later.
Here comes the Unboxing Photo Fest!
|All the eyeshadow you ever need in your daily makeup look!|
|Review this soon, yay or nay?|
|Incredible, cute miniatures at a great price! Great for travel!|
|Swatches of all the lipsticks/lipbalms from this haul. No swatches of the two lipgloss though, sorry!|
Do you know? Sephora prepares a different gift set every year for both their White and Black membership club members. They also throw in a complimentary brow shaping service from Benefit Brow bar this year, in additional to its usual perks of double points in your birthday month promotion. Look out for these information on your birthday (Sephora will only email you such info on your actual birthday. You may redeem your birthday benefits within one month from your birthday.)
Hope you enjoyed looking at my monthly collective beauty haul! I am not sure yet, highly likely this is gonna be my last blog post on my monthly haul. I buy too many things each month and I simply couldn't keep up with ALL the stuff I bought and put them into pictures & words, at one shot, end of every month. It is too exhausting for me.
|Me, after finishing a monthly haul blog post|
I am thinking of blogging about My Monthly Favourites instead; coupled with spontaneous posts of my weekly/monthly beauty haul only on my social media. With this change, I can also incorporate some non-beauty haul items such as accessories, clothing, gadgets, books or other lifestyle stuff into my blog, so I can introduce you to a wider spectrum of niceties!! How about that?
|Baby is excited with this change, are you?|
Let me know how you think below in the comment box! Remember, I will still be sporadically photographing my beauty haul...so follow me on my social media - Instagram, Facebook, Twitter for future haul updates! (Official hashtag: #faithyhaul)
