Collective {mommy} Haul

Ive been doing some spring shopping, surprizingly… NO CLOTHES. Although that is next on my list of things i need to do { go through my closet, cull everything, and then purchase what i need}. Anyways, i needed some new makeup, as this winter has been kicking my skins ass. I’ve never been so dry in my life. its horrid, I picked up some stuff from Sephora, Shoppers, and the Bay so here it is!! — i will try to list the product of what i bought from where i purchased it, however, shoppers isnt online so i cant link those from the store!

MOMMYHAUL

What i picked up from Sephora:
Anastasia Brow Pencil in Auburn Beauty Blender Clarasonic Mia2 Heads TOO Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
The brow pencil & mia heads were both re-purchases for me, so obs i love them. The Beauty Blender was new for me, and i very much so enjoy it and will re-purchase when the time comes, As for the better than sex mascara, for me, not sure what the hype is about because i hated it, which sucked! i was hoping to love it. I thought the want was way to heavy where the handle was and the brush was flimsy and to me didn’t give a nice effect. I will not be re-purchasing that product for sure!

What i picked up from Shoppers:
Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation Benefit They’re Real Mascara Benefit Hoola Bronzer
All these products were re-purchases for me and so i love them all.

What i picked up from the Bay:
Clinique’s 3 step system including the Liquid Soap Clarifying Lotion & Gel  clinique moisture surge (my night time cream) Chubby Stick Redness Solution Foundation Clinique High Impact Mascara (which i got as a sample)
The 3 step system is a re-purchase. Moisture surge is new for me, i just felt like my face was to dry it wasnt enough my regular gel i use so i upped it at night to this and its been awesome giving me a boost in my Tzone where i’m crazy dry. The Chubby stick is LIFE. strangely its crazy moisturizing and lasts a really long time. It gives a pretty colour to your lips without looking too much. perfect for a jean and tee kinda day. The Redness Solution i’ve only used 3 times, so far so good.. not sure if its hydrating enough for my face {THANK YOU CANADIAN WINTERS!@#()&!} but ill keep trying it out! i like the coverage and the light weight feel and the colour which i feel i’m a hard match to find. last but not elast the mascara, its AWESOME i’m going to repurchase it. its a really nice buildable mascara i like the want and the formula and it gives really pretty full long lashes, at 19.00 thats better than the 30.00 for the benefit they’re real!

Overall, i’m happy with my purchases, my skin seems to be improving, HOWEVER its not 100% just yet. if i havent mentioned it yet. i’m over winter, BRING ON THE SUMMER!

ONE : Nivea Lip Butter – ah maze balls. i purchased this at shoppers and it was on sale for i think about 2$? awesome price super moisturizing and smells perfectly raspberry. im in love, but everyone know how much i love my nivea!
TWO : Fabuloso – this is the bees knees. now that i have red hair, all my red head (wanna-bees 😉 ) will agree how hard it is to keep it looking fresh and not like dead autumn leaves. well this is amazing, i paid 30$ for it and its like a conditioner that’s colored (bright red- they do have many colors though) and you apply it while in the shower replacing the conditioner and BAM insta beautiful red hair. im obsessed, the only down side, it stains everything, so you do need to wear a good pair of gloves and make sure if it gets on you, wipe it off stat.
THREE : kid kraft metro train table – this was oakley’s big gift for his second birthday and although it was pricey, i think 200$ from costco is what i paid, its well worth the money, he plays with it ALL DAY LONG, literally hours, its constructed great, looks great and anything that keeps him entertained is a win in my books.
FOUR :  Aladdin tumbler – love this cup, i bought a pack of three for 19$ at costco (also found at target) they are like double cupped if that makes sense? so they stay so cold for hours and hold a decent amount of beverage. AND oakley loves them too. Any cup that’s not really his cup he loves. so i pretend to pour me a drink and then he takes it and sips on it all day.
FIVE : maybelline rocket mascara – this is a new found love, i got 2 for 8 dollars at shoppers and thought hey lets give her a try, and i love it, i think it gives great volume and length! the only thing i don’t love is how much product comes out but i just take some off from the sides and other then that its awesome, i think it works just as great as my benefit they’re real. which is 30$ so for me 4$ or 30$, yea easy decision.
SIX : nashville “believing” – this is my favorite song of the month easy, i find myself listening to it over and over and over! i obviously got mine from itunes, for like 1.29$ but its just a beautiful song, lyrics are wonderful and nashvillle is just such an amazing show if you havent seen it when the new season starts you should watch it – airs Sept 24
SEVEN : glitter sandals – love these things. i got them when they were on sale for 20$ and seriously they are the best. the first time i wore them they hurt and i was so sad cause they were beauties. but i wore again and never a hurt after that!

hope you all enjoy my monthly favorites and let me know if you try or have tried any of mine 🙂
