Collective Haul

Over the past few weeks I bought a bunch of hair and face products that I want to share with you all(some online and some in store). I was going to post these products in individual hauls, but that would have meant random little hauls all over the place. 
Other the past month (about that, I think) I've bought the following
  • Two EcoTools brush sets
  • Nude By Nature tinted moisturiser
  • Benefit Dandelion blush in travel size (off eBay)
  • L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
  • Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in Black/Brown
  • Rimmel Stay Matte foundation
  • Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
  • Essie nail polish in Jazz
EcoTools Brush Sets - 5 and 6 piece 
The 5 piece EcoTools brush set contains the following..
  • Mineral powder brush
  • Concealer brush
  • Eye shading brush
  • Baby kabuki brush
  • Hemp & cotton zip cosmetic case
The 6 piece EcoTools brush set contains the following..
  • Blush brush
  • Eye shading brush
  • Angled eyeliner brush
  • Concealer brush 
  • Lash & brow groomer
  • Hemp & cotton case
All in all, my thoughts on the EcoTools brushes are very purpose specific. I really like the eyeshadow and concealer brushes. They're super smooth, easy to clean and work very well. I don't like the face brushes, however. I can't really explain why, sorry. I just don't.

Benefit Dandelion Blush - Travel Size 
I got this blush 'cos I've always wanted to try it. I love baby pink blushes and I love Benefit. What more could I want? I like this blush, but I'm glad I didn't buy the full size.. I think this will last me for a long time.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
I bought this online after reading amazing reviews about it online. I bought it online 'cos I feel that it's overpriced in Aus. It arrived about 4 days ago and, unfortunately, I've been too unwell to try it out as of yet. I really can't wait to though and, as soon and I do, I'll be uploading a review.

Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
After seeing this on one of Arose186's hauls (I've been trying to find it for about an hour, but I can't) I decided I really wanted to try it. I've been using one pump in the ends of my hair for about a week now and I think it's doing something. My hair feels really smooth when it dries with the product in so that's always a bonus. WARNING: Only use the recommended amount (one pump) otherwise your hair will look like a grease ball. 

Essie nail polish in Jazz
I started work placement/experience last week and decided my black nail polish wouldn't really be appropriate so I set out for a nice nude colour that would work with any outfit. A hair salon near me sells Essie nail polishes and I've always wanted to give them a try so I had to go in and check it out. I bought Jazz as it looked like a perfect everyday colour. For the most part I like it. At times I find it's too nude, and washes my fingers out slightly, but it's a great colour and is definitely workplace appropriate. The Essie website describes Jazz as 'a neutral creamy beige-taupe.'

If you've bought anything new recently, let me know. I'd love to hear what's new and exciting.

Always look your best,
