Here is part 2 of my Black Friday hauls! This is an order I made from Pretty and Cute, as part of their “Pink Friday” promotion. This is my second time ordering from Pretty and Cute now and I really recommend them to anybody — the prices are reasonable, packages are well packed and shipping is extraordinarily fast.
I saw the Etude House strawberry sponge rollers on the Pretty and Cute Facebook page, and I was so intrigued I had to try them out.
They come 4 to a pack, so I ordered 2, but after trying them out once, I realize I really should have gotten at least 3. I’ll do a full review on these once I’ve had time to properly test them.
High off my recent successes with false lashes, I also hauled the Jealousness False Lashes in 505 and 501. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous and can’t wait to try them out.
I also ordered the Holika Holika lashes in 06 in a previous P&C order, and I’ll do a review on all of these later.
I get the oilies really easily, so I always have blotting papers or mattifying powder in my purse. I loved the idea of the Lioele Organic Oil Blotting Paper, in a little plastic compact with a “puff” that grabs onto each paper.
It may seem gimmicky, but after using it a few times already, the puff actually helps you to get into hard to reach areas like the side of your nose without splitting the paper, and to quickly get large areas like your forehead and cheeks. I like it a lot, and it works really well to sop up oil without disturbing my makeup.
I only wish there was a mirror included on the top of the compact.
For a sample, I received the Lioele Secret Pore Bright Gel foundation in 21. The shade is way too light and pink for me. I swatched it for anyone curious.
I would not describe this as a gel foundation at all — it reminds me more of a tinted primer than a foundation. I suspect it’s mostly silicones, in that it applies just like a face primer. In that regard, it does very well at filling in my pores but so does any silicone primer. It applies slickly with good slip but pills and looks cakey if layered.
I’m still waiting on a few of my hauls, including one non-beauty related purchase… my first pair of Black Milk leggings! I’ve admired Black Milk from afar for many years now, but I couldn’t bring myself to drop the cash. Luckily, their Cyber Monday sale was really good and I couldn’t resist. I ordered the Cherry Blossom White leggings and I’m just can’t wait for them to get here.
Any exciting hauls lately?
