Happy Haulidays: A Gigantic Collective Haul!

Happy belated holidays! Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas spent with family, friends and lots of good food! I spent my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with family and friends as I do every year and boy, am I spent. I really feel like I'm 20 going on 50 sometimes! That being said, it's a good kind of exhaustion and I'm ready to get back into the regular pace of things.

What beauty bits have you acquired recently? Did you receive any beauty goodies for the holidays?


  1. Wow! That is quite a haul :D
    Can't wait to hear more about them. Especially the Dior lipstick and Origin Blush tints.
    Happy Holidays! (again lol)

    1. Will definitely do reviews and swatches of those products soon! :)

  2. wow this is an amazing haul! You got lots of goodies there.

    1. Thanks, Pang! I usually tend to hold out until the end of the year for all the big sales and good deals :) My birthday and the holidays are pretty much my excuses for November and December hah!

  3. that's a lot of items!! I bet your holiday is so much merrier with these babies with you~ lolz =) I am so intrigue with the Maybelline Fresh BB..Can't wait for your reviews in them ^_~

    1. I'm actually really enjoying the Maybelline BB Cream and will do a before and after post on it. Surprisingly, I don't use a lot of my new products much around this time since I usually have to carefully photograph and swatch everything before I allow myself to use them! It's been really hectic with school, work and just holiday festivities so not much time to play with new beauty products!

  4. Amazing haul! I wouldn't know where to begin~

    Holiday Giveaway

  5. wow so much stuff! I love the Sugar duo and I'm pretty curious about those caudalie products :)

    1. I'm loving the Caudalie products so far! The exfoliating cleanser is pretty great :)
