Collective Makeup Haul

Hi loves! It's finally Friday and it's finally the weekend YAS! I can finally get out of the house now because the fever is gone (thank you very much)!

For today's post I decided to share with you the new beauty products I got these last couple of months mainly on my two recent trips; Wales (last July) and Madrid (last September). Yes, I did purchase all this with my own money and YES, I know I have a problem with excessive makeup shopping - I'm trying to fix that!

Disclaimer: This post is in NO way a place where I get to brag about the new makeup I got. I worked really hard to be able to afford these. This is just a post so that any of you who might be interested in purchasing any of these products will know if they are worth the price or not.

1. Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

I have been wanting this palette ever since it was released about 7 months ago but since this palette is a bit pricey I wanted to make sure that it is really worth buying. I own the Chocolate Palette and I love how pigmented the shadows are and how easy it is to blend them. As soon as you open the palette, this amazing peach scent comes out - this was no surprise as the previous palette that I owned by this brand had such a delicious (yes, that's what I mean) chocolate-y scent! As for the colours I haven't had much time to play with them although I did come up with a very simply makeup look which included the pinks of this palette. Let me know if you'd like to see that! I will give you more updates about the palette as I'll have more time to try it out.

2. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

THIS IS JUST AMAZING!! I had to write that in caps haha! Funny story is that for those of you who follow my blog know that I recently had a giveaway with four other bloggers where you could win this palette and I was the one in charge to purchase it. You can imagine how crushed I was feeling as this beauty arrived was a palette I ordered for someone else...and a palette I wanted so badly! I'm not exaggerating...I'm just really into makeup haha! Anyways, I finally got my hands on my own palette alongside the previous palette from Sephora in Madrid.

The colours are just AMAZING. Just look at the gradient effect - they all scream FALL! I love how pretty the shades look on my lids, how pigmented they are and how easy it is to work with them. I actually have a makeup look prepared for you using this palette so stay tuned for that! All in all, must-have palette for a makeup lover like myself or anyone who wants to invest in a really high quality eye shadow palette.

3. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

For those of you who know me, know that I feel that Urban Decay's palettes are a bit over-rated and a bit too pricey as well as being too similar to each other (except the Heat palette!). However, I had been eyeing the Naked 3 for a while for the simple reason that it has such gorgeous rose shades that I couldn't help wanting it. Lucky for me, my cousin Mattea whom I've mentioned before in the blog got me this palette for my birthday (She lives in Switzerland so she had to wait till she comes to Malta in Summer to give it to me!). 

The only thing I don't like about this palette is the brush it comes with for the simple reason that I don't like the liner side of the brush and I'm so glad they fixed that in the Heat Palette. Nonetheless, I carry this palette with me when I travel and in fact I took this with me to Madrid and I also featured it in a post on what makeup products to take when you want to pack lightly for a short trip.

These next couple of products I got from Superdrug while I was in Wales.

4. MUA Makeup Academy Palette in the shade Fire Vixen

I found out about this brand through Kezia from KezziesCorner when I watched one of her videos testing out this brand's products and one time I was actually talking to her and we brought the subject of this brand (it's no surprise that Kezia and I talk about makeup 24/7!) and she told me that their eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks are really good and this brand has some really affordable makeup so when I was at Superdrug I decided to try them out. I did purchase a matte liquid lipstick but I forgot to include it in this post - I haven't tried it out yet so I will let you know about it once I do. As for the palette I have nothing but good words to say about it. It has 15 shades, it's pigmented and they're quite good when it comes to blending them. I believe this palette was about £6-8 which is phenomenal! The only thing I had problems with and it can actually be seen in the photo; is that when I tried to wet my brush with setting spray to make the eyeshadow colour even more pigmented I kind of ruined the shade and it applied wore that if I would have applied it without any setting spray. In fact you can see the kind-of-ruined-shade in the 2nd row, last shade!

5. L'Oreal Superstar Liquid Eyeliner

I had been wanting to find a new liquid liner to try out as my 3ina one was almost finished and my brother's girlfriend had mentioned to me that the L'Oreal liquid liners are extremely good so I simply grabbed one from the shelf an tried this baby out. I love this so much. It is a pen and not a brush which I prefer and the pen allows you to do your eyeliner steadily plus it's super black which is always a bonus!

6. Makeup Revolution Blush Palette 

I don't know if this palette has a name to it but if it does it's probably Blush Queen because that's the only name there is at the back of it haha! Again, Makeup Revolution is a brand that I have never tried out before and I ended up loving this palette. It has 8 gorgeous shades that I use for blush and I also sometimes use the 1st and last shade from the 1st row as a subtle highlight on my cheek bones as they have this natural glow. 

7. Maybelline Rocket Volume Express Mascara

I've talked and raved about this product in so many of my posts that I feel I have now bored you with that but yeah, this is is my holy grail mascara!

8. Maybelline Colossal Mascara Go Extreme!

I haven't actually tried this mascara yet but if it's anything like the Rocket Volume one, than I already know I love it! I will let you know about it once I try it out.

9. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

I haven't tried out this foundation either because I had some many foundations that I wanted to finish those first before I test out a new one but I will definitely let you know my thoughts about it once I test it on my skin!

That's it for my beauty haul, I hope you liked it! Happy weekend loves 😘
