Beauty Bay Haul: May 2018

As a long-time lover of Beauty Bay, I was surprised to find that I’ve never posted a Beauty Bay Haul on my blog before. I’ve been out of work for a couple of months but I’m starting a new job next week so I’ve gone a bit crazy with the money I was saving…

In my defence, they had 30% off. I couldn’t turn that offer down! Here’s what I bought:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette– £43

ABH soft glam 04

I’ve had my eye on this palette since its release but I was reluctant to spend so much having never tried their eyeshadows before. With 30% off, this worked out at £29.90 which seems so much more reasonable. I will be posting a full review of this when I’ve had chance to test it out but I’m impressed so far!

Illamasqua Hydra Veil– £34

Another item that’s been sitting in my basket for some time is this primer from Illamasqua. £34 is a crazy price for what it is and I’d never pay that usually but once again the 30% off gods talked me into it. I’ve heard good things about this so I’m really hoping I’ll like it.

Ofra Mini Highlight Rodeo Drive– £10

I know that minis are almost always way less cost-effective than their full-size counterparts but I personally love them as I rarely get through products like this and it lets you try out the product first. Ofra highlights are something I’ve wanted to check out for a while so I was excited when I spotted the mini sizes available.

Milani Baked Blush Luminoso– £10

Beauty Bay is one of the few places we can get hold of Milani here in the UK and I’ve always wanted to try this blusher having heard all the hype about it. I’m not a massive lover of blush but I think this colour looks really pretty and I can’t wait to give it a go!

Morphe Jaclyn Hill Palette– £37

I feel like I’m the only person who doesn’t own this- and let’s be honest, I certainly didn’t need it. I’ve changed my mind about picking this up several times since it launched and I still have mixed feelings about it now. I’m not a big fan of Jaclyn but I think the colours in this are stunning- even if they are repeats of shades I already own in my collection.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick Santa Ana– £11

Looking at it, I probably should have gone with another shade. While Santa Ana is gorgeous and definitely a me colour, I have about 5 dupes of it already in my collection. That said, I do really like the formula of this so far. It reminds me a little of the Stila ones which are my faves and this is cheaper so I might pick up some more shades in the future.

That’s everything I got in my Beauty Bay Haul! Let me know if you want me to do a full review on anything! x

  1. There’s so much talk about all the repeats in the morphe JH palette. But, the reality is many of those repeats are great transition shades. And, I don’t know about you but I am always in need of good transition shades, they are the first to be used up for me. (I may find annoyance about two highlight shades that are barely used though.)

    I love seeing photos of the ABH soft glam palette and was just in the store yesterday checking it out. Would love to hear your thoughts as you try it out.

  2. The Milani blush is my fave! 🙌🏻 not tried that particular shade of highlighter, or the Soft Glam palette, but from the other products I’ve tried from the brands, so I’m sure you’ll really enjoy these! Xx
