Glambot Haul

Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals!

Today I’m sharing my most recent Glambot haul! This haul was bigger than my first, mostly due to having cash money now. I love Glambot because I get to try products that I never would have bought for full price in Australia. Some stuff works out to be a similar price, but other stuff is pretty heavily discounted, especially when you factor in that there’s no Australia tax haha. Lets have a look at what I picked up this time!

March Wishlist

Hey guys!

Last month I said I wasn’t going to continue this series as a monthly series if I didn’t have a lot of products to talk about because I don’t usually have a lot of things on my wishlist. So naturally, as soon as I say I’m not doing something, my brain went into overdrive and I had a tonne of things on what would have been a periodic wishlist post! I hope that you enjoy and maybe give me some incite into whether or not these products are worth it!

Journey to Cruelty Free #1

Hey guys!

So, since becoming vegetarian, I really wanted to think about the makeup and skincare that I was using. I know that being a vegetarian doesn’t eliminate all of the cruelty involved in my eating habits but in the effort to minimise the hurt that I’m creating, I wanted to try to start using majority cruelty free products. I’m not doing this to make myself better than anyone else. This is just a personal preference that I believe aligns with my personal beliefs.

I plan on making this a sort of series where I update you all on my progress and my planning. In this post, I am going to identify what brands in my collection are cruelty free and to what degree they are cruelty free (brand doesn’t test/sell in China, parent company doesn’t sell in China, vegan). A lot of brands don’t test but their parent company sells to countries (China) where it is law to test on animals, so you’re still more or less buying into cruelty. I hope that this is helpful, I am only including brands that I personally use so this isn’t everything that is cruelty free by any means. This is already going to be the longest post ever haha. I hope that you enjoy the post!

Inglot Haul and Swatches

Hey guys!

I still had a few items from the Adelaide Hair and Makeup Show that I wanted to share with you so I thought that I’d do a single brand haul post of the stuff that I picked up at the Inglot stall. Inglot had a 30% off trade show discount on during the Adelaide Hair and Makeup Show, which was fantastic and it meant that I could grab a few things and my bank account didn’t cry too much haha.

I only picked up a few things, I was really uninspired when I was at the trade show and just didn’t know what I wanted or what I needed. I did know that I wanted a lip liner to replace my lost Essence – In the Nude liner. With the new packaging, I think that the colour has also changed because I don’t remember it being so peachy, which is super unflattering on my skin. So I knew I wanted to pick up a neutral lip liner, at least.

The two liners that I picked up were the Soft Precision Lipliner in 67 and 74. I really hate that Inglot don’t have actual names for their products because it makes the shades very forgettable but I guess that they just have so many products that it might be a bit of a nightmare to name them. However, if Inglot ever wanted their product shades named, I would be so down for that haha.

Here are the liners swatched, 74 is the medium pink liner and 67 is the nude pink shade. They are quite creamy and I am so excited to use them because I know that I’ll be using them alllll the time.

When I used to buy from Inglot regularly, I had three lipsticks and I hated every single one of them because I didn’t know what lipstick I liked. I know that that sounds so stupid but when you first get into makeup as a hobby, it can be confusing sometimes and with so many options, it can be hard to make decisions. In the beginning I bought a lilac lipstick (good so far) but it had an intense shimmer running through it and wasn’t pigmented because of that (why did I buy this omg). So, I never really knew what was good from Inglot because in my experience, all of the lipsticks that I owned were frosty and looked hideous on me.

I was very happy to see their range at the trade show and I had to pick up this gorgeous pink colour. It is a nice matte shade and I’m looking forward to wearing it because it is definitely a ‘me’ shade haha.

12087552_10153460678382530_1309456825_n

And lastly, I wanted to pick up at least one Inglot pigment. A friend of mine really loves them and I’d just seen a really great tutorial online featuring some Inglot pigments. I already own a lot from Shiro Cosmetics so I knew the colours that I didn’t need. I have always wanted to try out MAC Blue Brown pigment but you get so much product and I know I can get the same or similar shade for cheaper so I just never bought it.

12087524_10153460678477530_463296635_n

I’m glad that I never bought it because this shade came into my life. It is definitely more green than blue but it still has a very similar effect on the eyes. It is so stunning and surprisingly wearable. It also reminds me of NARS Dual Intensity eyeshadow in Pasiphae, which I also want but the price tag kills me.

I’m so happy with this shade and I know that it will get a tonne of use because it is so beautiful and so wearable.

I’m really happy with everything that I picked up and I hope that you had fun reading about the shades and maybe this has given you a little bit of inspiration for what you might like to pick up from Inglot, if you haven’t tried anything from the brand.

I hope that you’re all having a fantastic day!

Glambot Haul!

Hey guys!

A few weeks ago I placed an order on Glambot after lusting over the products on the website for so long. I finally made an order and I thought that I’d share with you what I picked up!

pink-divider-no-background-md

So if you don’t know anything about Glambot, it is a website that resells makeup. The makeup on the website has been sent in by people who no longer have a need for the product and are looking to sell it. Glambot take the makeup, new or used, and it is santised by the team at Glambot and sold for a discounted price. Glambot tell you how much of the product is left and in what condition it is in. It is a great website and I can’t really imagine buying many high end items in store now that I’ve found this website.

Now on to the stuff that I ordered!

12067965_10153455665837530_978965848_n

The items were packaged really well in a bubble wrap bag with large Glambot tape running around it. Each item had its own little bubble wrap bag too, you can’t say that they don’t make sure that your items are safe because I don’t know how much safer you could really make these items haha.

12077380_10153455665812530_102580947_n

I purchased three items, NARS Semi Matte lipstick in Schiap, Urban Decay Primer Potion and a Guerlain mini kabuki brush because it was only $4.

12081361_10153455665987530_256118234_n

Each of the items had a Glambot security seal on them that said that they had all been sanitised and if any were broken, they were opened after they had left their hands.

12077103_10153455666122530_1204415178_n12092601_10153455666052530_1335427772_n

The item that I was most excited for was the NARS lipstick in Schiap. I have never owned a NARS lipstick and to finally own one is really exciting. The quality of the lipstick is really nice and it definitely feels a bit more luxurious than your regular lipstick.

12077069_10153455666167530_635834744_n

The Urban Decay primer is my favourite eyeshadow primer. It is the only primer that I have tried that has actually worked on my eyelids! So I’m very excited that this came back into my life after two years haha.

Each of the items that I bought were new items. I bought the NARS Lipstick for $22 AUD, which is $18 difference from how much they cost in Australia at Mecca. The Urban Decay Primer Potion was about $20 AUD as well, which is about $10 cheaper. As I mentioned before, the Guerlain kabuki brush was $4 and I think it is one of those brushes that come in a product but I thought it was cute so I bought it. I think that if you spend over $90, international shipping is free and in the US, you only need to spend over $30 to get free shipping. So it is pretty easy to get free shipping. I was going to spend up to get the free shipping but then I thought that I’d better not because I’d like to be able to eat for the next few days before I’m paid (pretty important, I think) and because I had never bought from the company before and I was still sceptical even though I’d seen a few trustworthy people speaking about the company.

So I will definitely be buying more from Glambot in the future and I would definitely recommend it. You have to get in fast if you know that you want something though because items will be gone the next day sometimes and the item will be lost and there will be many tears. So avoid it buy being ready to spend when you go on there to have a look haha.
