I’m not sure what it is about America, but I always seem to stockpile on beauty products whilst I’m there! This time, it wasn’t even just Sephora I raided, so prepare yourself for one big haul that spanned New York and LA…
Ouai Texturising Hair Spray; I’ve already posted about my Ouai finds here, but in case you missed the memo… I am obsessed! This is one of my favourite hair finds ever, as it sits somewhere between a dry shampoo and a hairspray – meaning it’s amazing for fine hair that doesn’t hold a curl well. I can just tell this is going to be a staple product for me.
Ouai Wave Spray; This is the cult pick from Ouai, although I actually prefer the above! I can always appreciate a good wave spray, however, and this is a good ‘un. It’s like a salt spray but without the crispy, dry feeling and it’s a must have for anyone who wants to add some bounce to their wave. I still need to use my curling tongs to give my hair a once over, but it certainly goes a long way in helping my hair to stay in place, and have a touch more wave to it.
Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Dream Huge; These little wonders are quite ready to launch here in the UK yet, but I recommend you keep your eyes peeled for when they do! These are probably my favourite liquid lipsticks of all, and I have tried many – they really glide on, and never feel dry! Plus, the colour range is fabulous and I haven’t stopped getting compliments on Dream Huge since I got it.
BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Split; This may well be one of my favourite finds of the trip! Prosecco Pop is paired with the warm, vibrant tones of Pamplemousse blush to make the most incredible duo!
I prefer Prosecco Pop to Champagne Pop so this is a dream team for me. Incredibly quality, perfect pay-off and the packaging is divine too.
Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops; I haven’t yet given these a whirl yet, but I expect they’ll be a must-have for injecting a glow come winter. The effortless drops can be added to makeup or skincare, or worn alone, to add an ethereal glow all year round. I have a lot of matte or velvet bases that are going to need reviving in a few months…
Boscia Luminizing Black Mask; This is the one product I wasn’t all that impressed with, despite it being a favourite amongst beauty lovers. The black mask dries on the skin, and it can then be peeled off to unclog pores.
I’ve always thought these pore products do more harm than good, and I was right – my skin hated this and I broke out all over after use, so I think this will probably be rehomed! Has anyone else tried this? I’m keen to know if I should give it time…
Pixi Mud Cleanser; Another highlight of my purchases is the Pixi cleanser, it’s nice and thick and feels so luxurious to apply, and it leaves my complexion looking unreal. I use it a few times a week, usually in the morning, to promise clear, super soft skin in no time. A must have if you suffer from a dull complexion!
Pixi Glow Mist; I’m actually yet to try this little wonder, but after my obsession with the Milky Mist, I can tell I’m going to love this! It can be used over skincare or over makeup, and it looks like it’s all I need to revive makeup and hydrate skin. I’ll have a full review up ASAP.
Pixi Glow Peel Pads; I’ve really been sucked in to the whole Pixi glow thang, but wow these pads are good. I’ve been using these regularly and have seen such a big difference in my skin. They’re a really easy step in my routine too, so no excuses if I’m feeling lazy!
Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm; I feel like I’ve been trying to get my hands on this for ages! I haven’t used a cleansing balm in months and months, and I’m so excited to get stuck in to this. I think it’s going to be my daily cleanser throughout the colder months, as the description sounds incredible!
Pixi H20 Skin Tint; Another product I’m yet to try, but this Pixi Skin Tint sounds like all I need to get ‘no makeup’ makeup whenever I want it. I love a light base every now and again, and I’ve been feeling so confident with my skin since I started using Pixi skincare!
What. a haul. I filmed a video in full too, so make sure to give that a watch if you fancy listening to me waffle on.
Have you tried any of these?
