Collective Haul (Benefit, Dior, Korres, Revlon, Garnier, L'oreal)



 These are some stuff I bought in the past 2 weeks from Sephora, drugstore and Ebay. I also did a small Essence haul yesterday but I will do a seperate post soon about them.





Benefit Go Tropicoral Lip & Cheek Kit
Since I found out in August that Benefit would come out with new Lip & Cheek Kits I knew I had to get the Tropicoral one! The set contains mini sizes of the ChaCha Tint, High Beam, Coralista blush and Coralista lipgloss. It was a great oppurtunity to try all 4 products with only 29 euros! Even though it's fall I can't stop thinking that this set will be great for summertime! The ChaCha Tint is a gorgeous tangerine colored stain, it makes my cheeks look very fresh, the High Beam gives a glow on my cheekbones like the one you see at runway models, and the Coralista lipgloss has a texture that it's not sticky at all, it reminds me of Mac Tendertones! I can't get enough of Coralista's blush smell, it smells like my childhood summers, so yummy I love it!



Garnier BB Cream for combination-oily skintypes
I have the original Garnier BB cream too but it broke me out, even though I loved the dewy effect it gave me. The new one is for oily skintypes and it's way different from the original one, it's very liquidy, it doesn't have any smell so it's good for those who are sensitive to smells, and it covers like a foundation, but it still feels very light. I'm not so sure if it breaks me out or not yet, I'll have to test it for quite some time to be certain.



L'oreal Volume Collagene 24H mascara
I read really good reviews about this mascara and I wanted to try it, I was waiting for a good promo to buy it because it costs 19 euros, in my opinion it's way too expensive for a drugstore mascara! These days they have a 5 euros off promo so I grabbed one. I haven't opened it yet to try it and tell you my first impression about it, but when I do I'll let you know.



Korres Nude Gift Set
 Korres recently released new make up sets, introducing some new products and shades. There are 5 new sets, a nude, a cherry red, a ruby red, a pink and a black one which contains their new Professional Volume Mascara, I got the nude one. The set contains a new shade of their cherry lipgloss in Sheer Beige #31, a new shade of nail polish in Nude #31, and a whole new product, the Professional Long Lasting Eyeliner in black,  from their new Black Volcanic Minerals line. The lipgloss is very very pretty, the perfect nude for my skintone, a shimmery peachy beige nude, great for warm skintones, very JLo like. The nail varnish is a light peachy beige nude with no shimmers, the shade is exactly like the color of my nails, it gives that glossy sleek look. I haven't try the eye pencil yet, but from the swatch on my hand I can tell it's very smooth. Ohh it comes with a small pencil sharpener also.



Christian Dior Rouge Dior Nude in #418 Ingenue
For the fall Dior released a new line of Rouge Dior lipsticks, the Rouge Dior Nude. I'm not sure which shades will be permanent and which limited edition, but from what I've read the Ingenue shade will be limited edition. The texture is superb! So smooth and buttery, I think as good as the YSL Pur Couture ones or maybe even better. Ingenue is a medium peachy beige shade with no shimmers. The only thing that I don't like is the taste, it tastes like crayons but it's not overpowering. 



Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait and Berry Smoothie
 Thanks to Ebay I can finally try the very famous Revlon Lip Butters. I got 2 shades, the #025 Peach Parfait and #050 Berry Smoothie. Peach Parfait is a medium peachy beige pink shade (if that makes any sense!) with silver glitters, yes glitters! That's the only thing I don't like about Peach Parfait, the glitters are gritty and I don't like that feeling on my mouth. Berry Smoothie on the other hand is glitter free, it has some shimmers though. The berry shade is amazing, so fall appropriate, it matches well with my warm skintone and it's very pigmented. Now about the famous buttery texture, yes they're very buttery, but they're no different from the Dior Addict lipsticks, almost identical I would say. So for those who can't get the Revlon Lip Butters on their hands, you can try the Dior Addict ones, I know they're more expensive, but hey it's Dior!




So have you try any of these products? What are your thoughts? Let me know!
