I went a bit overboard (according to my standards) in my latest makeup haul towards the end of last year, it was a mixture of international and local purchases. However, this is going to be my last international haul in a while! I went through such drama with buying these items that it has put me off buying makeup from overseas. Rant over. I bought from Colourpop, BH Cosmetics, Mac and Essence.


Colourpop lipsticks South Africa

I spent a few days trying to decide what I wanted to buy from Colourpop but I knew that my haul had to be lisptick focus because I just looove their lip products. Along with the lipsticks I decided to restock on the BFF3 lipliner which I discovered last year and it made my list of favourites for 2018. I also wanted to try out the concealer that everyone raves about, I got it in the shade Dark 40.

The liquid lipstick shades that I bought are (from L to R):

  • LAX – this is a repurchase, the one I had originally dried up because my daughter left the lid open
  • Souffle – is an ultra matte pinky/purple shade
  • Season 10 – is an ultra matte bright red from Shayla’s collection
  • Fudg’d – is an glossy nude shade from the Karrueche collection
  • Vitamin Sea – is an ultra blotted lip, I’ve never tried this formula before so I’m looking forward to that

BH Cosmetics

Bh cosmetics it's my raye raye collection

This is the first makeup I’ve bought from BH cosmetics and I think it will be the last. I had such a bad shopping experience with them. I placed my order on the 21st of November 2018 and it only arrived at the Aramex shipping address in New York on the 10th of January, this is after I had beeen following up with them via DM and e-mail! So bad customer service aside, I bought the It’s my Raye Raye collection which is this beautiful eye and face palette and the makeup brush set.

On first impression I love everything about this collection, the palette is stunning! It makes a great travel palette – this is the main reason why I bought it, it might just even rival my Stila palette.

Over the holidays I decided to browse the Mac store and came across this face kit and I immediately fell in love, it didn’t take much convincing from the salesperson for me to buy it and because it was a part of their holiday collection and the holidays were coming to an end, it was 25% off! Score! I stocked on black and brown eyeliners from Essence because the ones I currently had were giving me an eye infection everytime I used them, eeuuww!

This palette is everything! I’ve been using it almost everyday in the last 2 weeks; the bronzer is light and gives my face just the colour that I need, the blush is very summer appropriate while the highlighter is so smooth and the glow it gives can be seen from outer space.
