Summer 2018 has been incredibly warm and I guess that has to be one of the reasons why so many stores had just crazy sales since the beginning of June?! Most of these products were purchased in June and July, but some of them were purchased earlier, too. I really tried to control myself, but as you can see, it wasn’t easy. At least I purchased 90% of these products on sale. :)
Unfortunately, most of the makeup products are actually being discontinued so there isn’t any point in writing anything too much in detail, but I will still post swatches in a separate post. Especially of these gorgeous creamy eyeshadows that I got! I’m not sure what is going on, but I’ve been totally into creamy eyeshadows and I keep using only them on my eyelids. They are so easy to apply and blend, and even if they don’t look perfect, they look good anyway. I’ve been using primarily KICKS Cream Eye Colours (in tubes) and I’m said they will no longer be available. I have the feeling like I’m always late to the party and like I always buy things once they are being discontinued. :D H&M is also discontinuing some cream eyeshadows – colour essence eye cream, to be more precise – and I think’s that’s a shame too. They are removing two most interesting shades – Gentlewoman (dark plum) and The New Noir (greyish black). At the moment they only have mostly nude and champagne shades plus one olive shade. Hopefully they will come out with more (new) shades?
Another product I like a lot are IsaDora’s Twist-Up Matt Lips. IsaDora has certain permanent shades, but occasionally they come out with LE shades, like these that you can see on my photos. I purchased them anyway because they were indeed affordable, but the more important thing is that these lip products are indeed excellent! Especially for the price and when compared to some other, more expensive products out there. They often have similar shades in their range so you’re not missing a lot by not getting these, but if you can get them – definitely do, you won’t be sorry.
Another discontinued product is my favourite nail polish by Idun Minerals in the shade Ametrin. I don’t know why on earth would they discontinue this particular shade (because it’s stunning and looks amazing for days!), but since that’s the case, I was sure to get all the bottles I could find (3 of them at my local pharmacy). They might come out with an even better shade?!
Last two makeup items I got here are Tarte Tartelette Tease eyeshadow palette and Becca Cosmetics Amethyst Flashes Geode (that I forgot to open ha ha). Tarte was a gift from a friend, never tried anything from them and I already swatched this palette. I might play with it tomorrow or on Monday. Becca was purchased this week. It was on 50% sale and I figured it won’t be such a loss if I don’t like it a lot, but I think I might like it, especially as an eye product. Will play with it this week!
And, finally, I got some skincare as well. Recently I purchased a few Skintegra products. These were all launced not that long ago and I was actually waiting on Superbac to finally purchase everything I wanted to try. Some of my reviews will be coming up this week since I’ve been using some of their products since September last year.
I also got my first The Ordinary products. TO is available everywhere here in Sweden, at least it feels like it (they are available at h&m stores, Åhléns, Lyko and probably some other retailers, too. I got the products at my nearest h&m store.
Lastly, I got The Body Shop Moringa set at Åhléns about 2 or 3 months back. This is actually my favourite summer range from TBS and I urge you to try it! I love the whole range and I’m happy I get to use it again during the summer!
Seems like it took me forever to write this new in post, but I think I just need to get back into writing new blog posts. I’ve written down my plan for the week and I hope I’ll keep up with it!
