1st Beauty Haul of April 2020 With Swatches

This month’s beauty haul comes from the Beautylish website. I purchased all these products for a total of $293.00 and got free shipping. I also took advantage of their flex pay option. I paid $143 down and will be paying $75 for the months of May and June. 

Hey doll hey!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. My muscle that I pulled is starting to feel a bit better so that’s a plus for me. So received one of my beauty purchases today whilst I was getting ready this morning. So let’s get this haul going….

Belif Aqua Bomb Mist $34 for 2 2.02 fluid ounce bottles. The website states that this is an ultra-fine, soft and lightweight mist for glowing, hydrated skin and that it has  Lady’s Mantle Extract (a moisturizing herb that keeps the complexion smooth, clear, and youthful-looking) for refreshing hydration and nourishing herb Star Weed (Chickweed) ( known for its anti-inflammatory benefits)  extract for that healthy glow and that the water-based mist hydrates and adds radiance without smudging your makeup.
Good Molecules Super Peptide Serum $12 for 1 fluid ounce. The website states that it targets multiple signs of aging at once and that the special formula of peptides and copper tripeptides helps to hydrate, brighten, and smooth for a healthy, youthful-looking glow. It boasts that it will Smooth, plump and firm skin with copper tripeptides that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, that it will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions with peptides including Acetyl hexapeptide-8 and acetyl octapeptide-3. 
Good Molecules Hyaluronic Acid Serum $6 for 1 fluid ounce. The website states that it replenishes your skin’s moisture content. That this water-light serum draws moisture to the skin for long-lasting hydration. With just one use, skin appears smooth, supple, and well-hydrated. It boasts that Hyaluronic acid binds to moisture and draws it into the skin to maintain a healthy moisture balance and protect from dehydration and that it layers seamlessly under skincare and makeup, making it ideal for daily use.
BECCA Backlight Priming Filter $39 for 1.01 fluid ounces. The website states that it helps to blur imperfections and impart a radiant glow and that it is infused with three unique Filtering Luminescent Pearls, each one adds a different drop of diffused light. I have never used this as a primer. I also use it as a mix in with my foundations. It just gives this amazing lit from within glow to the skin. I have used this product on it’s own on no makeup days to give a healthy glow to the skin. This is a repurchased product for me. 


for this swatch I used a pea sized amount.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter in the shade #3 Light/Medium $44 for 1.01 fluid ounces. The website states that it is a customizable complexion booster that’s a primer, highlighter, and luminous mixing medium in one and that it has smoothing airbrush polymers and finely milled powders roll over skin with a creamy texture, minimizing the look of imperfections on camera and in real life.  I tried it for the first time today and I gotta say …. I’m low key in love with this product! It’s in the same vein as the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter, except it’s a bit more subtle in appearance. This product is offered in 7 shades with 2 for deeper skin.
This is 1 dab of the doe-foot applicator. 

The picture on the left is with flash and the one on the right is without flash. In pictures this one packs a bigger punch than the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter, but in real life it has a beautiful glow with a subtle sheen to it.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation in the shade 3 Neutral $44 for 1 fluid ounce. The website states that it’s a stay-all-day, weightless foundation that balances your skin’s unique undertones and optimizes overtones for comfortable full coverage with a natural-matte finish. It also says that it’s a sweat-proof and transfer-resistant formula. This foundation is available in 40 shades with 15 shades for deeper skin.
This swatch was done with 1/2 a pump of product… and it spreads so far… I realized a little too late when trying out this foundation that a very little goes a very long way!! 

The picture on the left is with flash and the one on the right is without flash. This little 1/2 pump of product could have covered 1/2 my face. This is super pigmented and creamy and does not set down all the way but leaves a demi-matte finish.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand in the shade 2 Medium/Dark $38 for .41 fluid ounces. This product is billed as being lightweight, easy to blend and buildable and that it is a soft-focus, semi-matte contour that has treated pigments with good adherence and color uniformity that create shadows and define features for a natural finish. This product comes in 1 shades Light/Medium and Medium/Deep … unfortunately there are no shades in this range that would help our deeper skinned beauties.  
This swatch is created with just the residual product left over from when i used it this morning.

The picture on the left is with flash and the one on the right is without flash. This product was so simple to use. I had been very interested in cream products but was afraid of the application process, this wand made it so simple and it blends out so seamlessly that it made me feel like a pro. It’s the correct undertone for contour done right. I used just a little around the hairline, hollows of the cheeks, jaw line, and bridge of the nose…. I was so impressed!!

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand $39 for .41 fluid ounces. The website states that the rose golden highlight hue flatters all skin tones, whilst the treated pearls blur imperfections, for the perfect, Hollywood gloss highlight. 
This swatch is created with just the residual product left over from when i used it this morning.

The picture on the left is with flash and the one on the right is without flash. I’ve used cream highlighters before and never really liked them … but I figured I’d try this one out since I was trying out the contour cream too… I am so glad I did! This applied like a dream and the glow I got from it was so beautiful!! I did end up setting my face and you can still see the glow on the skin … it’s just a bit more subtle, think lit from within glow. I am going to try this product without setting my face to see how long it lasts… but even with setting the face the glow was stunning.

Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand in the shade Goldgasm $38 for .41 fluid ounces. The website states this is a Highlighter/Blush hybrid that was inspired by lighting tricks of Hollywood photographers, this highlighter-blush hybrid plays with the light for a soft-focused glow that mimics the look of joy, fun, and happiness.
This swatch was just 1 squeeze of the wand. It’s much more gold than I would like for a highlighter so I will have to play around with this a bit to figure out the best way for me to use it.

The picture on the left is with flash and the one on the right is without flash. I really don’t know how I’m going to make this product work. It’s just way too deep gold … I thought it would be a more soft gold with a luminous finish … like the website description states… however … this one would be stunning on our deeper skinned beauties!!!

Well… That’s my beauty haul dolls. Hope you have a great rest of your day/night! I should have another April Haul for you soon… just waiting for my Ulta order that is STILL processing … gotta love this Covid-19 slow motion way of life we have going on.

Well … that’s all for now dolls. Remember … Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
