Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. I haven't blogged in a while but I am back now, you just sometimes lose the motivation and hopefully with this haul, inspiration is coming back. Beautybay had an amazing offer during the bank holiday weekend and I thought to myself why not treat yourself. Plus I'm feeling really ill right now so what better way to cheer me up than do what I love doing in my spare time.

Getting straight into the haul, I finally caved and picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette, the colours are just so pretty, if you've read my super honest review about the sister (Modern Renaissance) You know I weren't the biggest fan since I only liked 3 shades. Hope this one doesn't disappoint. I'll probably do a review when I actually play with the palette some more.

The other palette that I picked up is the Jouer Cosmetics Blush Bouquet  Dual Palette in Adore (now that is a mouthful)  the packing of this is honestly beautiful. I love their highlighters and can't wait to try this palette and the formula. It contains two shades, a matte warm dusty peach and a shimmering warm pale nude. I've never been much of a blush person but for some reason, I have been loving those nude peach colours. There are two other palettes this one is more of my cup of tea.
A highlighter that I picked up is the Milani Stobelight, I already know that I'm not going to be using this one since it is on the pink side, so I will be returning it - the colour is too similar to my hourglass euphoric strobe light powder.

I picked up the cult favourite; Luminoso which is a baked powder blush, I love their blushes especially warm petals and I can't wait to see how this goes on my skin. The packaging is a little bulky and it comes with that brush applicator that no one keeps. The colour of this is kind of a satin coral colour which is going to be amazing for the summer.
I wanted to pick up at least one skincare item and selected the It's Skin Q10 Effector which is a serum that helps with collagen production. It is a Korean brand and I've been slowing dipping my feet back into that area.  I love using serums and this one is really affordable and I can't wait to use it. It has those little beads which I assume melts into your skin

The next couple of items are backups and I constantly repurchase them. I picked up the RCMA No colour powder which I deposit into a loose powder compact to make it easier to use in the morning. It's really good for setting your foundation and concealer and baking which I so mainly on my forehead where I get oily the quickest.

The Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day in Coconut is my favourite setting spray ever. Coconut smells the best from the entire range. It helps prolong my makeup and get rid of that too powdery texture on your skin. I'm almost finished using my Cucumber one and it's the perfect time while there was an offer on.

Lastly, I repurchased the LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Illuminating Foundation in White which is a mixer, for some reason as we are getting further into summer my skin is getting paler and paler, this is the perfect mixer for any foundation and as you know I use the shade fair on a daily basis. If you like a buildable medium to full coverage foundation which is not super matte you need to try this. The shade range does suck hence the mixer saves my life.

I hope you enjoyed this little haul, have you picked up anything exciting?

Until next time!
