Recent Buys, First Impressions

Here are a few of the new beauty products I have been using over the last week or so. There's a bit of drugstore, skincare, hair and makeup in the mix and they're all quite promising so far!

Mascaras: Repurchased L’Oreal Miss Manga which has proven to be one of my absolute favourite mascaras. Perfect for fluttery voluminous lashes. Doesn’t smudge or flake, easy to remove at night! Winner winner!
Since there was a 2 for 1 deal on L’Oreal mascaras at Ulta I also picked up Telescopic Carbon Black. I used the regular Telescopic mascara years ago but never repurchased since I’m usually a volumizing mascara fan but this is an awesome lengthening mascara. Super happy with both of these purchases and even more happy with the fact that two of them cost less than half of the price of a high end mascara.

Eyeliner: Lorac PRO "Front Of The Line" Liquid Eyeliner. Heard this was better than the Kat Von D Tattoo liner so I was curious. It’s… exactly the same. I like it a lot but KVD is $5 cheaper so I won’t be repurchasing this.

Murad Exfoliating Cleanser: Just got this from Sephora and didn’t get the chance to use this yet but I like the sound of it!

Phyto Phytodensium Hair Serum: My hair is feeling thin and weak and I found 3 grey hairs. I purchased this serum that claims to fight both greys and thinning hair and I plan on applying it to my scalp while I cry at the thought of getting old. I used it once and the texture is very light, it doesn’t weigh the hair down and it smells like apples! Yum. Let's hope (for my mental health's sake) that this works ;)

Dolce & Gabbana Lipstick in “Cosmopolitan”: I’m fancy, huh? This is my first foray into D&G cosmetics and what better way to judge than by starting with a lipstick. Absolutely gorgeous shade – full review of it will be coming later this week! I bought it from Sephora during the friends and family sale.

Do you like these types of posts? I figure they’re a nice little supplement to Haul videos/full reviews.
