Wangbii | Korean Beauty Haul

 

Wangbii is a Sliema based-shop that is the unique spot in Malta which offers a wide range of Korean cosmetics and skincare items. Now being a skincare junkie myself, it was inevitable that I would end up going through this shop eager to try out some of these hard to find items.

As you can see this is not a very large haul but there are a couple of gems amongst the items I managed to get my hands. Firstly I want to mention the favourite thing I got from this store, it is the Nature Republic Collagen Dream Vitamin C Capsule Foam Cleanser. This is a truly unique face cleanser in that it has these tiny little capsules that burst when you rub them against your face and also act as a mini scrub. Continue reading

The Body Shop Haul

I have been meaning to share this Body Shop Haul for a while but also wanted to try out some of the products out before mentioning them on my blog. So without further ado here is my haul from The Body Shop.


Firstly, I am a huge fan of The Body Shop, I love trying out new things from them and have a few staple products, I repurchase time and time again! This time I got my well loved Madagascan Vanilla Flower Body Mist which I love for everyday use and have repurchased multiple times. I know it is quite sweet but I just love vanilla, anyone who knows me can testify this!

Next I got the Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish. I was given a sample of this during the Christmas period and loved it. It’s not too abrasive but has small coarse particles in a thick gel polish that helps scrub gently your face.

I also got the Vitamin E eye cream. I had tried this product before but had forgotten how amazing this is. It helps reduce my dark circles and the puffiness around my eyes. The smell is not too noticeable, it sinks right in the skin but leaves your eye area moisturized and doesn’t irritate the eyes at all. It is also perfect to use under makeup.

Lastly, I got The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 02 Fair Matte. I can honestly say that this is all Essie Button‘s fault. She was raving about it and I just couldn’t resist trying it out. Btw if you haven’t checked her out already, get on it! The bronzer is a buttery soft consistency, blends gorgeously on the skin and doesn’t leave you looking streaky. I sometimes also use it on my eyes, in the crease, to give some slight definition. This is a matte bronzer, no shimmer at all and will suit all skin tones.

I have also posted reviews for The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost and The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist.

Haul: Collection 2000, La Femme and BYS

BYS, BYS eyeshadow, BYS pencil, BYS review, BYS haul, La Femme blushes, La Femme blushers

Today I want to share with you some random items I picked up recently. I went to a local shop and saw that they had some BYS items. They had these gorgeous combination of eyeshadow palettes that I decided to try them out. They are fairly inexpensive so I wanted to see how the quality of the items was. There were also some items from La Femme which I wanted to try out too.

BYS palette called 04 Green Shimmer
BYS, BYS eyeshadow, BYS pencil, BYS review, BYS haul, La Femme blushes, La Femme blushers
Two of the shadows have tiny gold shimmer dots
however this is only on the surface and
I don’t think it has shimmer all the way through.
The color payoff is actually really good except the
lightest shade which can be a little chalky.

La Femme Blusher in 01
BYS, BYS eyeshadow, BYS pencil, BYS review, BYS haul, La Femme blushes, La Femme blushers
The colors are really gorgeous pink shades,
there isn’t too much shimmer in them and
the
color payoff is not exceptional but not
too powdery
either.

BYS Shimmer Shine Pencil in 07 Natural
The color is a frosted pink with gold shimmers,
I haven’t tested how long this product stays on
the lid and if it
creases but if you are interested I
will do a full review.

Lastly I finally got my hands on the Collection 2000 16 Hour Wear Concealer that everyone has been raving about. I got mine from eBay after many searches as it is not available here in Malta. I will do a full review once I have used it for some more time. The coverage is very good and it lasts well on the skin too.

As some of you may have noticed by the banner on this page, I am an Eyeko Ambassador. Last week I was lucky enough to have a wonderful reader purchase from Eyeko using my code, which led to me receiving this gift pack. When using an ambassador code, the person gets a gift with their purchase, with a minimum of a €15 purchase!

As a gift for my first sale I was sent a lipgloss from Eyeko and a post card 
How they describe it on the website:
Shoreditch – Creamy rose makes for a flirty lip look! Whether you’re browsing in Brick Lane or partying in Hoxton Square.

This shade is limited edition and it retails for €7.

Haul: Daniel Sandler GiveAway Prize

haul, daniel sandler, urban retreat, daniel sandler foundation and blusher, duo

About two weeks ago I was really lucky to win a GiveAway by Kate at The Not So Secret World of a Cosmetic Junkie. I was one of the runner ups on her giveaway and she very generously gave away this Daniel Sandler Urban Retreat Foundation and Blusher for Medium Skin and an Daniel Sandler Urban Retreat Top and Bottom Mascara. I love how sleek everything looks and the products look really amazing too. I am still trying things out but will be doing a review of the products if you would be interested 🙂

You get 25ml of foundation which is a decent amount
considering you get a nice cream blusher too.
For the mascara you get
5ml of product. Really exited
to have a bottom lash mascara as I’ve never owned one!
The blusher is in a compact at the top of the packaging and you
get a really
cute sized mirror to go with it!
The foundation is in the bottom part and you get to it by unscrewing
the top part and you have a
little spatula to get the product out.
I have never tried any Daniel Sandler products as I’ve never seen them in any shops here in Malta, so I was really exited and grateful to be able to try out some of these products!

Have you tried any products by Daniel Sandler? What do you think about it?

Haul: Elf Mini Shopping Spree

About a week ago the lovely people at Elf were having a free shipping code for their followers on Facebook. So I decided to make use of this discount code to get my hands on some new products and others that I have been craving for some time now!

I didn’t get much as I already own lots of products from the brand but I am really happy with all my purchases 🙂

I finally got my hands on the Elf Complexion Perfection Powder and
now I can understand what all the hype was about!
A perfect finishing powder that helps to
even out the skin and
does not make you look powdery!

I also got the Elf Pressed Powder in the
color
Sand which works really well with my skin color!
This has some good coverage too 🙂
Also got the Elf Lip Definer and Shaper in the color Nude/Natural.
I had really wanted to try out this lip pencil for ages, will do a review on this for sure!
I also got two brushes; one is the new Angled Eyeliner Brush which works really well with my gel eyeliners and the other is the Small Angled Brush which I really love to apply eyeshadow as liner with and I am using it everyday since I got it 🙂

Have you tried any of these products? What else do you recommend?
