New In ~ A Haul Post

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I am just about to go for my jogging hour and then to my studying. As it happens, I got the job I was hoping to get and I start tomorrow, I am quite excited about that. I'm moving to my own place, similar to what I had in Bratislava, with entirely new schedule for me. We'll see how it goes. :)

I planned to do this post yesterday, but we went out and I ran out of time. It is essentially May haul post. And I kind of bought a lot this month. 

Maybe a lot is a strong expression ... certainly more than in previous few months. :) The pictures are an adventure, because my camera went crazy, I hope it is not too annoying. I think I really need to toss it at this point, but I dislike the pictures my cell phone makes, so I am trying to make it work ..

Nail stuff first! Afrodita Oliva nail polish remover is the only nail polish remover with acetone I can use and it is my favourite nail polish remover ever, together with its acetoneless sister called Aroma. I finally used up Sally Hansen remover I bought in Blava, where you can't get Afrodita and the change in quality is amazing. I love Afrodita, if you have the chance, try it! :)

China Glaze Splish Splash nail polish I bought on a whim from a girl, because I really liked it on swatches and it was on my WL since the collection came out. I am wearing it ATM and it feels very very similar to Zoya Tallulah. Comparison will follow. 

And Born Pretty Store water decals, three of them, you already saw Pandas, and I have two more to show you. Fun stuff, I love water decals!

Stuff for skin and face! :) A little package of testers I got from Sabex, our distributor of Bioderma brand. You can go online and give your information and they send you testers every once in a while. That is where I got my tester of their BB Sensibio cream and now I got a perfect package for my mixed skin, Sebium Global creme is already on my WL, I think it will be great for me, as my skin condition worsened in the past year. 

Illamasqua blusher Allure. Oh dear Lord of the Rings. One word comes to mind whenever I think of this blusher: pigmentation!! It is hands down the best blusher I have ever used. You need to touch it with your brush really really lightly and then tap it on your hand and then put it on your face, otherwise it will be too much. Amazing blush. And I LOVE the colour. Gorgeous little thing. I need to get more Illamasqua in my life. It was a bargain, I got is as exchange on mojbutik, but I honestly think it is worth whatever money they are demanding for it.

Oriflame double sided brush I got as exchange on mojbutik and it is a good brush, albeit a bit hard to store. But it is good for applying eyeshadow.

Etude Proof 10 Eye Primer is an eyeshadow base that I was planning to order for a loooong time. Ever since I saw the review on so yeah, long time. I still haven't tried it, as my ArtDeco one is still acting nicely, but I can't wait to put it to the test! You can see on the first picture a bunch of testers I got with it.

And something for hair and body. :) Le Petit Marseillais brand got on my radar when a good friend of mine brought me a couple of their products all the way from France and I loved them. Later on I noticed our Leclerc has some of their lines and I tried them again and loved them. So it was great news for me when I saw they are coming to Slovenia for real, with most of their lines and Leclerc had this huge sale on them a couple of weeks ago. So I got their Shea butter and honey hair conditioner and their Shea butter, almond and Argan oil body lotion. They smell divine, especially body lotion and they are great (I prefer the white, almond hair conditioner though). 

Balea Warmwachs I got again after reading amazing review on, and I already tried it on my legs and loved the result. It is good stuff. It is on sale right now since they are discontinuing it (figures!) so I already bought another package.

As always, if you want any specific reviews of any of the products in this post, just let me know in the comments. :)

What did you purchase for yourself in the last month? :)

Thank you for reading and commenting!
