Honest reviews, regular hauls and all things beauty.

Recent purchases #11 featuring Nars, Xen Tan, Stila, Ole henriksen, YSL & more!

I have another haul to share with you all today. I didn't buy all of these products in one go, it was more a case of over a few weeks, but I thought I would bundle them together in one bumper post! I will post reviews separately when I have had a chance to road test everything.

I really love the brand Nars & have previously posted about the products that I own from the brand here, but I only owned one of their eyeshadows. I have wanted their Narsissist palette since it was first released, but it was always sold out everywhere. However, recently asos had it back in stock (it's out of stock again now) & I pounced on it! I am so happy to have this palette in my life & although I haven't used it yet, I know from looking at the colours that they are all shades that I will wear.

Feel Unique recently had a promo one where you got £10 off an order of £25 or over, so I took the opportunity to add another YSL lipstick to my collection because I absolutely adore the only other YSL lipstick that I own - the Rouge Volupte in Nude Beige. There are so many beautiful shades to choose from, that it was difficult to choose just one! I eventually settled on Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in the shade Pink in Paris (No. 13). I love it already & can't wait to wear it!

Xen Tan Moroccan Tan is my all time favourite tan, so I bought another one to have as a back up. I am so pale at the moment so need to get my tan on! I also bought the mitt to go with, because I find that they don't last very long when they are being used weekly.

I also bought a hand bag sized tube of a Caudalie hand cream because I like to have a mini on the go at all times! This small size is perfect for even the smallest handbags.

I recently finished a tub of Darphin Ideal Resource Overnight Cream, which I reviewed here. I really love it, so I repurchased it. I also repurchased my day moisturiser from Origins, called Plantscription, which I reviewed here. At the time of reviewing, I was unsure if I would repurchase, but I grew to love it & had to repurchase. These two are unboxed because I forgot to take a photo before I started to use them! Ooops!

Another month, another mascara! I love my Stila waterproof liner so I thought I would try a mascara from them & decided on the Mile High Lashes mascara. I am excited to try this & will let you know what I think of it soon.

I have never tried any products from Ole Henriksen, but would like to. Most of the products are very expensive, which is a risk when you have never tried anything from them before, so I thought I would dip my toe into the brand by purchasing one of the mini gift sets. I bought the Merry and Bright Duo, which contains two 15 mls bottles; one of Pure Truth Activating Oil & one of Truth Serum Collagen Booster. It has a value of £47, but only cost £18, but I had a 20% discount code, which reduced it further to £14.40. I will let you know what I think in a few weeks!

From Cult Beauty, I purchased a tub of Therapie's Himalayan Detox Salts because my sleep has been all over the place recently from being ill & I know that these can be depended on to ease me into a deep, deep sleep. I haven't had them for about a year so am looking forward to using them again.

Finally, I purchased a 1 drawer wide storage box from Muji to extend my collection & house my new purchases! I love these boxes - I like being able to see everything & grab what I need without having to search through everything.

So that is the end of my haul. I am really happy with everything I have purchased & will do reviews on these items soon. That is the last of my shopping for a while, I think! Need to buy some Christmas pressies!

Do you own any of these products?
