Collective Beauty Haul

I've purchased several new makeup and beauty products over the past few weeks and I wanted to share them with you. I'll jump right in!

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent and Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation in Ivory

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent
I've heard so many people talk about this powder that I had to try it for myself, and so far so good!

Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation in Ivory
I haven't tried this yet -I haven't even opened the bottle to see if the color is a match, but I will soon! I've wanted to give this foundation a try because, although I really like Revlon Color Stay foundation, I was looking for something lighter and with a higher SPF for the warmer months. I plan to do a full review on Nearly Naked after using it for a while.

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid On Fire Red

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid On Fire Red
I've already tested this; I just couldn't resist! This is a product and shade I've wanted for a while, and if you saw my Lip Product Wishlist. I'll need to do a full review on it soon, but for now I'll say, I don't regret my purchase at all! 
**Target's website currently has a $1 OFF coupon for Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Products**

E.L.F Hypershine Gloss Set 

E.L.F Hypershine Gloss Set 
This gloss set came with 3 twist up, brush tip glosses in Cherry Fizz, Berry Cherry, and Cherry Tart. I've purchased several of this type of gloss from E.L.F in the past, and love them so I didn't hesitate to buy more. 

E.L.F Shimmer Glosses Set

E.L.F Shimmer Glosses Set
This set came with 4 doe foot glosses in Victoria, Maui, Pink, and New York City. I think I've used every type of gloss E.L.F. makes except this one so I'm excited to try it. It's super shimmery and the colors look gorgeous! I'm splitting the shades from this set and the other new E.L.F. gloss set with my mom, but I may still be able to swatch them if you're interested in a review. 


Essie Penny Talk

Essie Penny Talk
I've wanted a rose gold polish for a while now. After seeing Essie's Penny Talk swatched online I had to add it to my Nail Polish Wishlist. I finally found it this week and I'm excited to add it to my collection. Watch for it in a NOTD post, coming soon! 


Diane 2" Bobby Pins in Black
I've been in need of new bobby pins for ages. I've lost, or tossed out, most of my old supply. Now I have a whole container of 300! I'm set for life! 

Have you picked up any new makeup or beauty products? Is there anything that you think I should try? I'd love to hear about it in the comments. 


  1. I love the Essie color! I really like metallic nail polishes! Also loving all the lippies you got! Can't wait for the reviews!

    Making It Sparkle

    1. I wish I had a spare moment to paint my nails! It's painful to have a new polish and to not use it yet! ...If these are my problems I guess I'm not doing so bad, right?

  2. Great haul Nikki! I love the Essie polish, it's always good to have a rose gold!! Bobby pins ALWAYS go missing. I always have a ton and then poof they are gone and no where to be found!

    Happy Friday!!


    1. Thanks Kendra! I don't know if I was dreaming this or if I really saw it (I'll have to check instagram), but I saw that you had a new haul on instagram. I need to stop looking at my phone while falling asleep. It's not normal to dream about instagram.

      I think the people that make bobby pins know they will get your business again because how can you not loose them?
