The Sephora + Feelunique Haul



How do I explain this? My friend and I wanted to make a YouShop order (Sephora round one), then I wanted to do a birthday order because if you can't treat yourself then, when can you (Sephora round two) and then Feelunique had a couple of sales. Sorry not sorry. This was a thing that happened over a couple of months and today I thought I'd show you some of my new favourite beauty things...

The Sephora Stash

Clinique Cheek Pop in Melon Pop-Let's start off with the obvious here, the Clinique Cheek Pops are just so aesthetically pleasing to look at. Who doesn't want a blush that has a flower embossed into its powder? Melon Pop as the name would suggest is a peachy pink shade. As it isn't too warm toned it's the perfect blush for porcelain beauties and it looks really natural on. I love that these are travel-friendly as well. 

Peter Thomas Roth Mini Mask Magic Kit-When I'm on a skincare kick, it's masks that I love to work into my routine. Peter Thomas Roth masks are pretty pricey on their own so when I saw this mini mask kit for sale it went into the virtual basket. Inside you get the Pumpkin Enzyme mask, Rose Stem Cell mask and the Cucumber Gel mask. All three are included with different skincare concerns in mind so you could always buy something like this and split the masks up among friends as gifts/party favours. Or if you are like me and don't want to share them, you have three different masks for different occasions. Winning. My favourite has to be the Cucumber Gel mask but the Pumpkin Enzyme mask is up there too.

Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara in Black Honey, limited edition-I spied this mascara a couple of times over on Jane's blog and it really intrigued me. Coloured mascaras are all the rage at the moment and this burgundy black follows that trend without being too garish. I've not opened this one yet as I seem to have a fair few mascaras open but I will keep you posted once it is cracked open. Side note: This shade isn't being ranged in New Zealand as far as I know but the black mascara in this formula will be available.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Hand Cream-This fragrance has to be my favourite of the year, hands down. It's a subtle floral with a hint of musk and I am obsessed with it. So when I saw they'd released a hand cream in this formula I added it to my basket and didn't look back. It's silky smooth, dries down fast and doesn't leave your hands feeling sticky or greasy. Ain't nobody got time for handcreams that act that way. 

The Feelunique Frenzy

Rimmel Lasting Finish Cream Concealer-As far as I know this concealer hasn't been released here in NZ. Given it looked similar to my long-missed, Corrector from Bobbi Brown, I had to try it. It's opaque enough to conceal dark circles (yass!) but it blends out nicely and doesn't look too cakey. It's also long wearing too. A plus to Rimmel.

Bourjois Aqua Blush in Cocori Corail-To be honest I've not experimented with this product much yet but on the occasions I have worn I've loved the way it looks. This creamy cheek stain gives you the perfect amount of tint with a bit of dewiness thrown in for good measure. I recommend using fingers or a duofibre blush to blend this in for the most natural looking effect.

Topshop Beauty Lipstick in Rio Rio-First things first, how stunning is that rose gold embellished lipstick tube? It was a limited design to celebrate 5 years of Topshop beauty recently. While it may not be around now, this colour is part of the permanent lineup. It's the perfect orangey red and gives me major Lady Danger x Mac vibes. It's also matte too so you know it's not going to disappear in the nick of time like creamier formulations tend to. If you're looking for a vibrant red going into the warmer months, this may be the lippy for you.

Bourjois Colorband Eyeshadow+Liner in Mauve Baroque-When Anna dubbed this a dupe for Misty Rock x By Terry my ears pricked up and I made a note to test that theory out. Feelunique had a good sale on Bourjois things recently so that was my excuse to grab it. Now it's not identical but it is very close. Mauve Baroque leans ever so slightly more purple but it does look very similar on the lids. It's also not quite as budge-proof as its higher end counterpart but it does still last a decent time before it fades. I'm going to have to get some more of these for Summer because there's some other pretty shades I need must have in my life.

Zoella Beauty Tutti Fruity Fresh Fizz Bar-Zoe's added a tropical touch to her beauty range and it's bound to be just as popular. I grabbed this fizz bar along with the makeup bag, which I'm actually using as a pencil case. As opposed to the original chocolate bar style fizz bar, this one is made up of bigger squares to break off and use. I think there's four or five so you get a decent amount of use out of this one. The scent is tropical but it definitely has hints of florals and muskiness in there too.
