Totally Non-Bookish Makeup Haul


Hey everyone! I know this isn’t my usual or bookish related at all, but lately I’ve gotten into buying and messing around with makeup more. I’m definitely still a beginner, but I’m actually kind of enjoying it.

It started in early January, I was breaking out a bit last semester from stress and was just looking for some really good foundation and concealer because all I had was shitty drugstore stuff that lasted two hours and made my face feel gross. So I went to Ulta—I tried to go to Sephora first but walked right out because it makes me feel overwhelmed and claustrophobic—and the woman there was amazing and hooked me up. And I’ve just been kind of in a makeup binge buying mode ever since.

Fun fact, while I’ve never been really into makeup in general or skilled with applying it I’ve been a big proponent and wearer of bold lipstick for quite some time now. I rocked a red lip a ton in high school, and still do along with other colors I’ve been trying out. Here’s my haul below. Okay they’re a bunch of mini hauls as they were four separate purchases, anyway:

High Beam Liquid Face Highlighter
• Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 Liquid Foundation
• ‘That Gal’ Brightening Face Primer
• Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer
• Hoola Matte Bronzer Mini
• Hello Flawless Powder Foundation

On the right is an order of mine from Colourpop Cosmetics. I’ve heard only good things about their lip products, and they’re very reasonable priced, only thing is you can only get them online. Left to right:

• Bright Idea Lip Trio 
• Shake, Rattle & Roll Lip Trio
• Creeper Ultra Matte Lip
• Bossy Lippie Pencil

Okay on the right here is just a small haul I got at Primark. The liners I honestly can’t tell you the brand, they were just cheap and I’m trying to practice and experiment with liners right now.

• Milani Amber Nectar Illuminating Face Powder
• Assorted Lip Liners

The picture on the right—and the rest of the pictures—is my second Ulta haul. I ordered some things online, which was a really great experience. There was a promotion or something going on so I had a discount code—which only applies to certain brands—plus I ended up ordering certain dollar amounts and got some free gifts. Will say you need to order $50 worth for free shipping. This whole photo including the bag is actually a free gift/kit I got from spending so much on Ulta brand products:

• Ulta Amped Mascara in Jet Black
• Ulta Matte Lipstick in Petal
• Ulta Brow Tint in Medium
• Ulta Eye shadow Palette: Shades Lace, Charm, Nostalgia, Vintage, Delicate, and Seaside
• Ulta Cheek Palette: Shades Fresh Glow Highlighter and Nude Pink Blush
• Ulta Eye Makeup Remover Pads
• Ulta Nude Matte Eye Shadow Primer
• Ulta Lip Gloss Stain in Treason
• Ulta Dual Eye Liner in Majesty and Smoke
• Ulta Blush Brush
• Ulta Cosmetic Pencil Sharpener

Both pictures are just a continuation of things I ordered on Ulta, and like actually things I ordered instead of the last picture that was all free stuff. Correction: the Smashbox primer and NYX matte lipstick were free gifts and then on the right there are just some free samples included with my purchase. Anyway:

• NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray
• Ulta Nude Matte Eye Shadow Primer
• NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp
• NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick in Charmed
• NYX Eyeshadow Base in White
• Smashbox Deluxe Photo Finish Foundation Primer
• Ulta Fabulous Face Foundation Primer
• Tarte Maneater Voluptuous Mascara
• NYX Matte Liquid Line in Black
• BareMinerals Thank You, You’re So Sweet 8 Pc Eyeshadow Set

thanks everyone for putting up with this not the usual post. I’ve just really enjoyed getting into makeup (still on the beginner level but still). let me know any favorite brands or maybe hacks you have in the comments!

    Awesome haul! The last time I saw non-bookish one was, well…I really don’t know lol. I totally prefer Ulta over Sephora too. Plus the Sephora closest to me is in the mall, and I honestly prefer to avoid those ahaha.
