Autumn Makeup Haul (pt. 1)

I decided to work a few new makeup items into my collection because I’ve been going through what I own and turfing some old and expired products. I got rid of a LOT of old foundations when I moved into my new house, which means I’m down to basically nothing. Also, with no guarantee of Sephora shipping my orders to me, I need to start trying to find something comparable to Givenchy’s Photo Perfexion foundation. The search begins…

01. Covergirl 3 in 1 Foundation in Classic Ivory – I received a sample bottle of this a little while ago, and I remember the colour being a good match, and the texture being quite nice. It’s a struggle to find this shade in a lot of Pricelines though, I looked in three different stores before I managed to find a bottle to purchase.

02. Revlon Colorstay 24 Hour Foundation in Ivory – I’ve tried this foundation before, and I remember liking it. It has quite a thick formula, so I thought I’d give it a go now that the cold weather has well and truly kicked in.

03. L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Black – I bought this after hearing Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup mentioning it time and time again as one of her favourites. I’m a big fan of the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, but I’m on the hunt for a second ‘drugstore brand’ mascara that I like.

04. + 05. L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks in Bloody Mary & Spring Rosette – I swatched a couple of these lipsticks on my hand when I was in store, and they seemed exactly the kind that I like to wear. Fairly matte, but moisturising without being too glossy.

06. Natio Mineral Eyeshadow Trio in Bronzed – I saw the tester for this eyeshadow sitting on the shelf, and couldn’t resist picking it up. The colours are exactly what I like to wear, and I thought having all three of them together would make this a great little eye palette for traveling or tossing into my bag on the go.

10 Thoughts on “Autumn Makeup Haul (pt. 1)

  1. Oooh I love the “twin” of that CoverGirl foundie, the MaxFactor FaceFinity one, so much that I have gone through an entire bottle (rare for moi haha).
    I loved watching LeighAnnSays on YouTube do the no touch up challenge for Revlon’s Coloratay makeup, it definitely makes you want to paint it on for the day!
    Looking forward to hearing how your foundation search goes…

  2. I bought the Revlon Colorstay as well and have been using it for about a month. I used to wear this exclusively in high school. It is very thick! But it does last….

    I’ve been wanting to test out that CoverGirl foundation. You’ll have to let us know your thoughts on it.

    • I will! I’ve worn the CoverGirl foundation a few times in the past, and I remember it being really nice. I’ll keep y’all posted 🙂

  3. How do you number the products?

  4. Curious to hear what you think of that L’Oreal mascara. I picked it up about a month ago and I just hate it so much. I don’t know why but the brush is terrible and makes my lashes all clump together and then it’s horrible to remove. Mine is black though so maybe it’s a slightly different variation.
