Recently Purchased and Returned || Haul

I recently purchased some beauty items and ended up returning some of them. Hope you enjoy reading the post!


Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Lipstick in Sunkissed – This lipstick was very creamy and gave a beautiful coral color to the lips. Unfortunately it ended up melting a little bit in the hot summer sun but I kept it since it still worked well.

Laneige Eye Sleeping Mask – I absolutely love this eye cream. My under eyes look so smooth and hydrated when I use this eye cream. The applicator twists off and has a round glass end that you apply it with, and then I pat it in. The consistency is very liquid-y. Although it says it’s a “sleeping mask” I like to use it mostly in the morning before putting on makeup because it makes my under eye concealer look so great, although I do use it at night sometimes as well because it just makes my under eyes look smoother and better.

MAC Fix+ Matte – I was so excited about getting this because I love the regular Fix+ (I’ve had several bottles including the regular version and the Coconut, Lavender, and Rose scents) and I’m also an oily girl, so a matte version sounded great. I was so disappointed because when I sprayed it, it left white dots all over my face! I tried spraying it several times just to make sure it was this. I ended up returning it, which was too bad because I was pretty excited about getting it.


Ruby Kisses Sunset Kiss Eyeshadow Palette – I did not like this eyeshadow palette at all. I saw this at CVS and saw that it was a new brand there and also $3 and decided to pick it up and try it out. It did not have hardly any pigmentation at all and the shadows were very stiff. Although I liked the color combination and it was only $3 I would not recommend this eyeshadow palette. I also tried a lip gloss from this line but did not like it at all because it also didn’t have much color and was very thin so I ended up returning it immediately.

Loreal Les Chocolates Infallible Pro Matte Lipstick in Candyman – I knew I liked the formula of this liquid lipstick because I have several of the other Infallible Pro Matte lipsticks (including one from the Les Chocolates line) and absolutely love them. They’re extremely long-wearing (they last through several meals and at the end of the day I still have some on my lips!) and I like the colors a lot. I liked this color a little bit less just because I’m not as into pinks but it still looked very nice and lasted all day.

Wet ‘n Wild ColorIcon Lipgloss in Featherless – I was originally looking at some of the lip glasses from the MAC Patrick Starrr Summer collection around the time I saw this lip gloss and it really reminds me of them. They were very creamy, glossy, and also in a peach/nude color, and so was this gloss, only at a fraction of the cost. I will say that I think the MAC glosses were a little bit more opaque, but at $4, you can’t beat this gloss.


Huda Beauty Matte Lipstick in Gossip Girl – I have the shade ‘Sugar Mama’ from this line and loved the formula so much I knew I had to get another color. This shade is a very muted pinky-red shade that’s super wearable and while I’ve only worn it once, the formula was just as great as the ‘Sugar Mama’ color; it went on completely opaquely in one swipe and was so creamy and felt like absolutely nothing on my lips. It also lasted for hours and hours on my lips, so I would definitely consider buying another shade from this line if I saw a color I liked.

Becca Glow Lip Gloss in Opal – I was kind of in-between with my opinion on this gloss. It’s  moderately glossy but not overly glossy, and has a very muted color. I didn’t hate it enough to return it because I think I will be able to use it, but it’s definitely not my favorite gloss and I don’t think I’d purchase any more shades from the Glow Lip Gloss line.
