a small Beauty Bay haul

I asked you guys on Instagram what you’d like to see more of, and hauls was one of the things people wanted to see! So here’s my most recent Beauty Bay haul!

I was running out of moisturizer, primer and setting spray, so I wanted to try out somethings new.

I’m on the hunt for the best moisturizer for my rosacea and dry skin. I don’t want to do anything drastic, I’ve been on antibiotics for three months last year and I want something that is just a one-and-done thing. This moisturizer sounded really promising! I will report back on this one, once I’ve used it for a few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Deeply hydrate skin with our moisture-intensive moisturizer, formulated with Isodecyl Salicylate (Keratoplast) and Lemongrass Extract to help encourage a more radiant complexion. Elastin and Oatmeal combine to smooth the look of wrinkles—leaving skin brighter, softer, and more youthful-looking. – Mario Badescu website

Ok, granted, it isn’t targeted as a primer, but it does state on the (extremely fancy!) box that you can use it underneath foundation, so I’m counting it as primer. Ok, first of, LOOK HOW COOL. This has to be the most fancy packaging I’ve ever gotten, and I’ve frequently used Dior for my skincare. I’m incredibly excited to try this out. Hopefully it’ll help with my redness, but it also claims to be extremely hydrating for up to 48 hours and claims that even the driest of skins would improve with this product. Those are some claims I like to investigate! I’ll definitely report back on this one as well.
It has a really long description on the website, so I’ll just highlight some interesting points:

A novel approach to creating a foundation for skin that reflects even radiance in life and very specifically through the camera lens, this instant treatment is serum-textured but contains a wide array of light refracting prisms, tone and hue correctors and topical photo-finishing technologies to offer even radiance within seconds.

Bio-Silica Photo Finishing Prisms Grades 3, 7, 9
Multiple grades of next-generation ultra-fine particulates refract light in thousands of directions to create an immediately-noticed even tone to the skin.

Patented Dragon Fruit Chromatic Refractor
First-ever bio-fruit complex to provide immediate visible radiance to the skin as tested under multiple light conditions and under camera settings.

Nano-Prismatic Yellow-Red Hue Corrector
Sixth-generation, ultra-fine hue corrector blacks out red tones and minimizes undesirable yellow ones for skin that looks instantly better in life and on camera.- NIOD Website

20190308_111543 (1)Cover FX High Performance Setting Spray
I usually use MAC Fix+ as my setting spray, but I wanted to try something new. I’m gone for 12 hours a day when I go to work, and considering I work in fashion, I want to look good for the entire time! Hopefully this setting spray will blow my mind and will replace my Fix+!

A weightless, alcohol-free setting spray that locks in makeup for 24 hours of wear with next-level pollution protection.
High Performance Setting Spray weightlessly sets makeup, protects against pollution, and ensures 24 hours of wear without fading, settling, cracking, or discomfort. This quick-drying, 100% alcohol-free formula works for all skin types and is designed to keep your foundation, blush, eyeshadow, and concealer in place without feeling sticky, greasy, or drying. – Cover Fx Website

Ok, look at that and tell me you don’t see the ABH Modern Renaissance in it! I really want to see if it’s similar or completely different in it’s own right. Or maybe, it’s just a great palette to take with you on holidays! An interesting palette for sure!

Berry Burst is an assortment of beautiful berries and warm tone in a variety of finishes.  Creamy mattes to high impact foils this mini will complement any of your looks. – Violet Voss website
