August Health and Beauty Haul!

Hi, Beauties! I have a fun haul to share with you all. I placed an order with iHerb as well as Amazon. I rarely shop on Amazon but I had received a gift card, so of course, I had to buy some new beauty products!

As I mentioned, I had a gift card for Amazon so I decided to pick up a few beauty items. I am still waiting on one more beauty item from Amazon but I think it's coming from China, so it's taking a while. I'll share it in a separate post, I think it warrants it's own post anyway. I also purchased some items that I will be using during my walks, but I'll share those in a different post as well.

Everything in the above photo was purchased on Amazon, ca with the exception of the Annabelle Lipsie which I purchased at Walmart as a backup. I had a $2 off coupon for Annabelle that was about to expire, so I decided to grab another Lipsie since I use them all the time and with the coupon, it was only $2! woo-hoo!

I had just done an eyeshadow declutter (linked here) and I wanted some new eyeshadows that were a) in a palette, and b) in lighter, everyday colours.

Here's what I purchased from Amazon:

I know that many of these products may not be brand new to the market but they are new to me and I'm excited to have some new products to try out, even if they are just drugstore. ;)

Everything in the above photo was purchased on Most of these are staples for me but the Real Techniques brush cleaning palette is new to me, and it's a new product in general! I was so eager to get this brush cleaning palette as I imagine that it's just what I need! I've haven't used it yet but I will post a review once I've had a chance to try it out. It kept selling out on iHerb's website and going out of stock, so I signed up for notification of it coming back in stock AND I stalked their website until it was back in stock and quickly placed an order. Shipping on this order was only $2.33 USD vs. the usual $4 USD, so you can't really beat that!

Here's what I purchased from iHerb:

I've reviewed the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette, here is the link to it if you'd like to check it out.

  1. Oh DO please review the Blushed Nudes palette - I keep seeing it every shopping day, and have itchy fingers lol. Impressive haul Amy, you did great xxx

    1. Will do. The Blushed Nudes palette is a very eye catching palette for sure. It's an odd mix of colours that's for sure. I'm sure you'd do some cool eye looks with it but it isn't strongly pigmented.

  2. Great Haul Amy! I like the Loreal La Palette Nude 1 Eyeshadow Palette. The colours are great for everyday. I was thinking of getting the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette but decided on a little "egg" thing from Amazon :) Tal xo

    1. Thanks, Tal! The Loreal Palette is a good one! I have the little egg and the RT brush cleansing palette and I'm really glad that I splurged on the RT one! xo

  3. I love the RT brush cleansing palette! I'm not a fan of their brush cleanser but that little palette is bomb.

  4. oh that Maybelline palette is absolutely gorgeous!
