It feels like such a long time since I've done a drugstore haul! I have been resisting, holding myself back from any big spending sprees, but I thought that doing a Spring high-end haul would be nice. To be truthful, I really only needed to get foundation but who can resist a Debenhams Beauty Hall.
Estēe Lauder Double Wear Foundation
I have been dying to try a high-end foundation for months now. Don't get me wrong, I love all my various drugstore foundations, however, I just want to explore the other options out there. I'm over the halfway mark in all of my current foundations, so I felt that a new foundation would be a good investment. After some research, I concluded that the Estēe Lauder Double Wear was one of the top rated across the internet. I picked out the lightest shade they offer, Shell, after a little bit of struggle. I'm looking forward to testing it out!
Brows were one of the things I wanted to expand on during this shopping trip. I've been using the same product combination (NYX Micro Brow Pencil/Benefit Gimme Brow) for around about a year now, and I just feel like I need to stretch my wings a bit. I've tried a few products out of the revamped Benefit Brow Collection, but I've been wanting to explore more. I was wavering between the ka-BROW! and the Brow Zings kit. The girl working at the counter was lovely and convinced me that the Ka-BROW would be most suitable for me. I've tried it a few times now and I'm loving it; my eyebrows have never looked better.
Benefit's newest must have product! I love the quality of the Benefit boxed powders and have the ambition to collect as many as I can. GALifornia has been hyped for so long that I could not resist it. It is the most gorgeous peachy pink colour with a gold shimmery sun design on top. I swatched it at the counter and could not discern any shimmer. It is so pretty that I want to leave it as perfect as I can, for as long as possible.
Browsing the makeup aisles makes me so happy! The lady on the Estēe Lauder counter was telling me how the store was getting a few new stands in the next few months: Kat von D; Bobbi Brown; Kiehl's and Make Up For Ever. I'm so excited, I can't wait!
