My Beauty & Skincare Haul - May 2018

I know what you're thinking, why is Miranda buying makeup and skincare items when she already reviews them? I hear this so many times from friends and family and it's frustrating because I honestly am a beauty and skincare junkie and I pride myself in that - haha! I often make purchases of things I obviously like, and of new up and coming items that I want to try out. Sometimes, I will buy something because it's just so damn pretty and I neeeeeeeed it! 

I rarely do these types of posts so I thought I'd share with you my haul from the month of May and to share my thoughts on the items with you as well!

1. Marc Jacobs Coconut Omega Bronzer 
This item flew off the shelves like hot cakes last year, and then it did so again this year. I wanted to buy this last year but it sold out honestly so quickly and this year I think within a few weeks it was gone and now it's off the site. It's a finely milled perfectly milled bronzer that makes you look sunkissed and bronzed. 

This bronzer is cream based so it gives you a very natural finish. It blends out like a dream and does not give off an orange tone.

I have used this product for years and purchased this as a backup since it was on sale for $12. It covers any uneven surfaces and fills in the pores so that your makeup can be applied smoothly. It dries upon application and does not leave any residues. Sometimes I just use this on my no make-up days and it just helps to blur the skin out a bit. This will always be a repurchase for me.

If you are a lover of the Orgasm line, then these two beauties should be added to your collection. The lip balm is quite sheer but so hydrating! It leaves a subtle golden glow to the lips that reflect the light beautifully. The loose powder is tinted so you can either use it as a highlight or as a blush (depending on what you like). When applied as a blush it is a much more concentrated version of the blush. You can also apply this on my collar bones or parts of the body you want to accentuate.

I have only tried one shade of this shadow but when I swatched this at the store they were all beautiful gemstone colors (as the name suggests). This can easily be applied on top of a cream base to draw out the color and shine.

These three products from LUSH are all repurchases for me. The NEW bar is excellent for hair re-growth and the two body washes are my favorite from LUSH besides Lord of Misrule but that is a holiday one and Yuzu and Cocoa Cream which is now discontinued. 

What were some of your purchases lately? Have you tried anything listed above? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Until next time, XO - M.
