October Cosmetics Haul

Happy October!! I can't believe how quick this year flew by and it is honestly only going to get faster from here on out. These are the months with all the holidays. I mean Halloween this month, Thanksgiving the next, and finally Christmas and the New Years!! It's so scary how fast it is going. Next year, I will be off at college. I will be an adult...!! I can't wait for the freedom, but the responsibilities of an adult is crazy! So much stuff to deal with that kids just don't worry about! I only began to see these things this year which is probably why I am freaking out so much hehe.

Towards the end of September, I went on a mini shopping spree for some new cosmetics and hair products. I hadn't gotten any new cosmetics for myself in such a long time. Even though I haven't used everything I got yet, I still want to share my purchases and opinions with you guys.

l'oreal magic lumi Review


 The first product I got is the L'oreal Magic Lumi. My sister uses this product the most, but it is a "light infusing primer." This primer is very nice and is our second tube of it. The packaging has changed slightly from the past, but the formula is still the same. It can be worn under a bare face and gives you a dewy and radiant finish. I also find it to keep my makeup looking great for hours. I would only recommend this primer for people that have dry skin. I would think this product combined with oily skin would cause an overly shiny face

Color Tattoo Teanacious Teal Review

I have used Maybelline color tattoo's before and I personally like the consistency of this eye shadow.  It is feels smooth when applying and does last a long time. (I have yet to find the need to have makeup on my face for 24 full hours.. )  The only thing that bothers me about this shadow is the fact that the color selection for the brand is a bit limited. It is limited in the sense of fun, bold colors, but the fact that they carry almost no neutral color bothers me. On most days, I use neutral colors as opposed to a bright blue color like this. The color that is shown here  Tenacious Teal. I love the color itself and I find it to look really nice on my skin, but I wonder how they came up with name for this product. It's a medium dark blue with lots of silver shimmer inside. There is no sign teal.. hehe. Nevertheless, it's still a beautiful color. 

Kiss My Face Sliced Peach Review

I picked up this chapstick at Shoprite and it is fairly nice. It's not the best, but it isn't the worst chapstick I've tried. This one is suppose to be scented like peaches and made with all organic ingredient. I don't make it my goal to use all organic products, but when I have the opportunity too, I usually choose organic just because it is a bit better. To be honest, the scent isn't the most pleasing to me. There is a hint of peaches, but there is another scent in there that I dislike. It reminds me a bit of ginger and I personally hate the smell of ginger. My mom puts it in her cooking sometime and I am not the biggest fan. It makes sense for me not to like it in my cosmetics hehe =)


So after all that dying on my hair and the stress of school, I definitely need something to help heal my hair. I really want to grow my hair long so I must keep it healthy. I personally believe that true healthy hair comes from the inside while external products can only help conceal the damage. There was a point where I had super smooth hair that looked healthy from afar; however, in reality, my hair was full of split ends and I was losing clumps of it daily. I haven't tried this product yet, but I am hoping for it to seal my split ends in for a while till I get my hair trimmed. 

garnier sleek and shine moroccan sleek oil treatment

Another product for my hair is one I have been eager to try every since it became popular. It's Moroccan oil!! I have heard so many people rave about this oil and I was glad to get a bottle of it for myself. I got the oil from garnier and after a few uses, I have come to like it a lot! The first time I used this oil, I was so confused on what to do and I ended up pouring oil into my hair. . . the result was not pretty. the 2nd and 3rd time I used it, I learned that you should only use a little bit!! The scent of this oil is nice, but for people who are sensitive to smell, I would tell them not to buy this product. The scent is very strong. In fact, the smell is the first ingredient in this product.

l'oreal color riche lipstick Review

l'oreal color riche lipstick Review

The last 3 products in my haul are these lipsticks from L'oreal's Color Riche collection. This collection has received many positive reviews and I wanted to try it out for myself. This lipstick is known for it's moisture power and I must say, it is VERY moisturizing! The scent is a little strange, but I am assuming it's because of how much moisture it contains. I purchased 3 colors- Pink Flamingo, Plum Explosion, and Wisteria Rose.

L'oreal Lipstick Pink Flamingo
L'oreal Lipstick Pink Flamingo
L'oreal Lipstick Plum Explosion
L'oreal Lipstick Plum Explosion 
L'oreal Lipstick Wisteria Rose
L'oreal Lipstick Wisteria Rose
All three of these colors are full of sparkles which I like. If you are looking for a matte color, I think L'oreal has another collection for matte colors as well. The flamingo color is a color similar to what you would find on Barbie's lips while the Wisteria Rose is a fun color for the summer. My favorite,Plum Explosion is the perfect color for fall/winter. It contains a lot of deep red tones and out of all three lipsticks, it contains the most sparkles!

Have you tried any products that I purchased before? What are your opinion on the product? 
Have any of you tried any hair oils before? (coconut, macadamia, argon)  
What lip colors do you prefer in the fall?

  4. Those lipsticks are gorgeous! I especially think Wysteria Rose is suuuper pretty! I've been interested in Moroccan oil hair products, but haven't purchased any as they are a bit pricey (at least the one's I've seen).

    1. Thanks! I love the rose color as well! The moroccan products are really nice. This one that I have isn't the highest quality, but the price is very nice (under 8 dollars) and does help smooth hair.
      I have seen some of the oils prices over 20 dollars in the salon and i'm like.. I can't afford that!
