Collective High End Beauty (Make Up and Skincare) Haul

I've picked up a few products over the past month or so, making a note of each new purchase in my phone as I did so. The other day I realised that my list was actually getting fairly long which definitely means it's time for a haul! Some of these products were backs up/replacements, others were impulse purchases, but I thought you might all enjoy seeing what's recently made its way into my collection - whoops!

I lost my all time favourite MAC lipstick, Angel, in the depths of my handbag and I had to pick up a replacement after only days without it. Of course I found my old one the next day but, hey, it never hurts to have a back up! Along the same line, I was having a cheeky snoop at the Clinique Lip Pop display when two lipsticks caught my eye. I walked away with two, Nude Pop and Fab Pop, and I absolutely love both. They're so comfortable on the lips!

To celebrate the launch of their newest mascara, Roller Lash, Benefit was holding a promotion where you could get a free deluxe sample of the mascara if you swapped it for your eyelash curlers. I had a super old E.L.F. pair sitting around and, given that I wanted to give the mascara a shot, I decided to take advantage of it!

Lastly for make up, my friend picked up the Illamasqua Powder Blush in Naked Rose for me while she was in Melbourne. I've heard such great things about this shade and, given that I already know I love the formula, I decided to add it to my collection!

My skin was really dry about a month ago. I was drowning it in rose hip oil overnight but I decided to pick up a mini size of the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light to see how it went under my moisturiser in the daytime. For anyone who's wondering - it was really great. I also picked up another tub of my favourite moisturiser, MAC's Lightful Marine Bright Formula Moisture Creme. This is my third tub of this moisturiser and I could not recommend it more! 

If you saw my March/April Beauty Favourites you may remember that I rekindled my love for Alpha H's Liquid Gold so I picked up a replacement before my current bottle ran out - does anyone finish a product before buying a replacement? I've been looking at the Alpha H Instant Facial for quite some time now, not knowing whether to pick it up or not, but Adore Beauty recently ran a promotion where you could get a full sized bottle free if you spent over a certain amount on Alpha H skincare; it was the perfect deal. I took the opportunity to also grab a bottle of their Balancing Cleanser so we'll see how it all goes together! 

So, there you go, that's everything I've bought recently. If there's anything you'd like more information on, whether that's looks with the new products or reviews of them, comment below and let me know!
