Cult Beauty Haul – Jouer and Beauty Bakerie

Hi loves, recently I picked up a few beauty bits from one of my favourite beauty websites, Cult Beauty. It wasn’t a hugeeee haul, so this won’t be a drawn out essay like post which I have the tendency to write, instead this is a quick ‘see what was in my Cult Beauty haul’ kinda post. 

Jouer Cosmetics Power Highlighter Topaz

I was and still am signed up to quite a few wait lists on the Cult Beauty website. I LOVE that feature, helps me pick up products I’ve got my eye on like the ones in this post. I was scrolling through Instagram recently and saw someone use the Jouer Cosmetics Power Highlighter in Topaz and I think it was pretty much love at first sight. I’ve not used Jouer Cosmetics before so my interest was piqued. I rushed over to the Cult Beauty site to pick it up immediately, only alas, it was out of stock. So I signed up to the wait list expecting it to be a while before the product comes back in stock. However I got extremely lucky and it came into stock within a few days so of course I picked this up. The packaging feels luxurious and the colour is just divine, it is more on the gold side which is what I wanted as I have quite a few of the champagne shade in highlighters already. I can’t wait to have a play with this. I also picked one of these up for my best friend as I felt like it was going to be a winner. I will definitely be creating some makeup looks with this beauty, so be sure to come back for that. You can pick this up [here] for £19.00

The second thing I picked up in my Cult Beauty haul was a bunch of Beauty Bakerie Lip Whips. Just like Jouer Cosmetics, I haven’t tried anything from Beauty Bakerie before so again I was excited to discover a new brand. I talked about these on my wish list post [here]. The packaging for the brand looks absolutely amazing, I’m surprised I’ve never tried it before. I picked up 5 Lip Whips in the following shades:

  • Syruptitious – A mauve-rose shade
  • Fortune Cookie – A cool toned beige nude shade
  • Gingersnap – A warm burnt orange/brown red shade
  • Take Me for Pomegranate – A deep bold red berry shade
  • Mon Cheri – A pigmented classic red shade

Mon Cheri was sold out when I first tried to buy it, so I had to place a second order to make sure I got hold of it. Again I picked up two because it seemed like a beautiful red and I wanted my best friend to have one as well. I’m not going to review these here for you right now, there is a separate review/swatch video coming up for these so again make sure you check back for that. These retail at £16.00 [here]. Let’s just say I highly recommend you check them out.

That is it for my Cult Beauty haul, it’s a short and sweet one and you know what? Sometimes, just sometimes, I prefer that. It means I don’t have a heap of products to get through, a heap of products sitting there to be photographed, and I don’t get overwhelmed. I hope you liked today’s post and do let me know if you’d like to see more haul posts. Speak soon, Tanzina x

Wish List Wednesday #1 : Sleek Cleopatra’s Kiss Highlighter

I have such a long wish list, it’s longer than my leg and arm combined. I thought I would share some of the things that have caught my attention recently, so that you can join me in the super long wish list gang. I’ll try to make Wish List Wednesday’s a reoccurring feature, hopefully it is one I manage to stick to!

Sleek Cleopatra's Kiss Highlighter

So I have spied a highlighting palette that I predict is going to always be sold out. When I saw it, I did a mini shriek as I know this is a palette I won’t feel super guilty about buying due to it’s price tag and it is going to be amazing. Let me introduce you to the Sleek Cleopatra’s Kiss. When I think Cleopatra, I think drama and I think gold. This palette could not be better named as it is just that.

Sleek’s first highlighting palette, Solstice, proved to be so popular that it was always sold out at most Superdrug stores I visited. Although it was definitely on my wish list, what stopped me from hunting it down was the pink tones in it, I need something more warm and gold for my skin tone. Sleek Cleopatra’s Kiss feels like it was made for me specifically, it is everything I want. It has gold tones, rose gold tones, powder AND cream highlight, and it is under £10. What more could a girl want. I’ll be picking up two of these, one for me and one for my makeup kit.

Sleek Cleopatra's Kiss Highlighter

This launches today, you can pick it up for £9.99 from Boots and Superdrug.    

Let me know if you have something special on your wish list, maybe I’ll make my list longer! I’m so excited for the launch of this Sleek Cleopatra’s Kiss highlighting palette and can’t wait to do a review on it for you guys. Speak soon, Tanzina x
