My New In....

Hi Girls! I really wanted to hang out with you today, but at the same time it is Sunday and I am not in the mood for heavy writing or reading. I need a refreshment on this rainy Sunday. And is there a better way to pick yourself up than with the new beauty products? Actually there is. But for purposes of this post, let's pretend that this way is the best. Also, after my pretty large Empties post (here), I think that some new things are just in time ;). So, Ladies...welcome to my New in post!

I was quite busy purchasing new beauty items last few months. Some of them were (surprisingly) bought in actual stores, some are presents, and some were bought through the internet. You gotta love internet shopping!!! I certainly do.

This year I got to travel a bit, so I celebrated that with some shopping.

If I had to name one type of makeup product that I really don't need anymore, I would say eyeshadows. But eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes are also my favourite products to purchase. I apparently decided to endulge myself and bought three new eyesshadow palettes: The Catrice LE - DENIM DIVINE C01 Injeanious palette, Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette and Urban Decay Naked 3 palette that I am probably the last one to get but I just couldn't help myself.

I visited Germany and there I bought my first P2 products. P2 is a drugstore brand that I heard great things about. To try to avoid more eyeshadows, I chose lip products and bought myself MOST CHARMING lip fluids (something between lipstick and lip gloss). I also purchased Clinique Cheek pop blush in the shade 04-Plum Pop, which looks absolutely beautiful... <3 <3 <3

My body care got some loving as well. I visited The Body Shop and went away with two new products- Strawberry Body Butter and Shea Body Scrub.

Visits to Croatian drugstores were also very satisfying. ;)

I am always in need for a new Nivea roll-on (my favourite), especially this time of year. Dry shampoos are another staple product in my bathroom, so I stocked up during a Batiste sale in BIPA. I've written a review here for Batiste Strength & Shine dry shampoo, which is my favourite, so if you want to know more about it go and read it. In BIPA Le Petit Marseillais body lotions were also reduced. I saw this kind with Poppy and remembered that a fellow blogger, Nives from the ALittleMakeupobssesed blog, raves about it. Since I was still sad about the last few particles of my TBS Smoky Poppy Body Butter, there wasn't any other option for me other than to buy it for myself, and I did.

Recently, Physicians Formula products landed in Kozmo stores here in Croatia. I watched Tati (former GlamLifeGuru) raving about their Organic Wear Mascara for years, and when I had the opportunity to buy it and try it out myself, I jumped! I am still testing it out but I would say don't take your wallet to the register yet! I must say that Physicians Formula products are a bit expensive on our market. This mascara, for instance, costs 100 kn (13.36 Eura/10.55 GBP/15.04$).
DM was offering 40% reduced prices for L'Oreal products. I needed some new makeup items like L'Oreal Infallible 24H Matte foundation, and wanted to try some new products, so I bought L'Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss lip glosses (Mafia Gloss and Protest Queen).

I really do not discriminate. I buy beauty stuff from everywhere, even through the catalogues. That is how I ended up with the next few items. With summer feet exposure in mind, I  bought Oriflame Feet Up Rescue Treatment Foot Mask and Oriflame Moisturizing Socks. I didn't want my hands to be jelaous, so I also bought travel size of The Oriflame Dream Cream hand cream. And for my face I chose The Oriflame Swedish Spa Purifying face mask. Hand and foot cream are really nice, the mask and socks are still waiting for their turn. Will keep you posted! :)

People around me also traveled and brought me back gifts. Bless them! ;)

I had my birthday in May and everyone knows that they can't go wrong with beauty products. Those who traveled to North bought me loads of products from TBS Olive line, and those who went more south, brought me back The Kiko lipstick.

I know that it doesn't seem that way, but I really did start paying more attention not to buy loads of monthly beauty boxes.

Lookfantastic Beauty Box, after months of honest crush brought me to the end of our love affair when I realized that I have a stash of Lord & Berry eye liners for life! I did buy one box but mostly because it contained  Revlon Colourburst Balm which I wanted to try and which isn't available in Croatia.

Feelunique Pamper Me Beauty Box was a must because it was reduced and I had another coupon code for even less, and the products inside of it are really nice.

I already wrote about The Cult Beauty Box by Anna & Lily here, so I won't go into details, but this was hands down the best box that I have ever bought! While shopping on Cult Beauty I also added Konjac sponge to my cart. Couldn't resist.

We have come to the end.... ;)

How do you like my purchases? What did you buy?

Tell me...

Love, beautyandbrains007

  1. Wow! what a haul. Some great stuff, hun. I totally agree with the physician formula mascara. It does not work for me. Happy new week, doll.

    1. Dear Lenya... Thank you for your comment! I agree with you about Physicians formula. It runs on me like crazy!!!! I will continue to test it and let it dry out some more but until now, it is a total NO!
      I wish a wonderful week to you, too <3 :*
