I apologize this post is a little late. With my subscription boxes coming at the end of the month, this post became a bit delayed. I think I have already passed being "fashionably late" since it is the 14th of May! I have changed the name of my post from Hits and Misses to Raves and Returns... any opinions on which one sounds better? Anyways, since it was my birthday month, and I had more hauls then any one person should, I discovered a lot of new favourites. You will notice a lot of these from recent hauls!
Tarte Amazionian Clay Blush in Blissful - This was part of my Sephora birthday haul and my first plunge into Tarte blushes. I have been wearing this blush every single day since I purchased it! Love the pigmentation, and the overall colour looks very natural on my skin tone. Will definitely repurchase Tarte blushes, even though they lean to the expensive side.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser - This product was purchased in my recent Body Shop haul, and somehow I knew it would make it into my favourites. It has a nice fresh scent, is deep cleaning, and I love the foaming action! It is also super gentle on my sensitive skin. I will definitely be repurchasing!
Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Split End Mender- I have been on a major coconut obsession recently. This product happened to be on sale, which is great because I was already hooked on the smell! I can't speak much to it fixing my split ends, I don't believe any product really does that. But it does make my hair soft, smooth and smelling fantastic! I haven't always heard positive reviews on this brand, but I am anxious to dive a little deeper and see how it works for me.
Korres Cherry Lipgloss in Natural Purple - Another product from my Sephora haul. Love the consistency of this lip gloss. It has fantastic opaque colour, and the lasting power is admirable. The price tag hurts my heart, but it's definitely a nice little luxury I can seriously appreciate.
Cargo Duo - I received this eye shadow in a Luxebox and was a little apprehensive initially. The pink swatched very sheer and the brown very dark. However, it is beautiful on the eye's, and blends out to a perfect everyday look. I wear this combo pretty much every day and never get sick of it!
Sally Hansen X treme colour in Rockstar Pink- A great overall glitter nail polish. A combination of yellow, pink, purple, and blue glitter. It instantly changes the look of any polish, as well as looks amazing alone. It makes a great dupe for a higher end nail polish...keep a look out for a post revealing which polish it dupes.
Victoria Secret Fresh Vanilla - I am just loving the smell of this perfume. Fresh and light, a floral vanilla scent for sure. I am loving perfume right now since in the summer I don't wear much. Where I live mosquito's are abundant, and smelling sweet just makes you a prime target. This was relatively inexpensive, but lasts all day.
e.l.f. Eye Primer - This was the first eye primer I ever owned. It is very sparkly, but for awhile I did love it, made excuses for it when 4 hours in my eye shadow creased. Honestly, if primer is a necessity for you like it is for myself I would invest in a quality one. This can't hold a candle to my Urban Decay primer. If you have dry skin, this would be a great primer, especially for the price.
The Body Shop Rainforest Moisture Hair Butter - This was one of my first leaps into The Body Shop hair care. This is the miniature size, you can also buy one twice the size of this. I had high hopes since I have loved 99% of the products I purchased from The Body Shop. However, this one really fell flat for me. It didn't add any moisture to my hair, and actually for the most part left it feeling brittle and damaged. I'm really not sure what happened, maybe it's my hair type, but this product just really didn't work for me. Not to say all of The Body Shop's hair products are flops... their Banana shampoo is fabulous!
Hope this was helpful!
