New To The Beauty Stash | A Haul

New To The Beauty Stash | A Haul ft. Stila, Nip+Fab, Shiseido, Anastasia Beverly Hills, La Roche-Posay || The Glam Surge
Just because I took a break from blogging, doesn't mean I took a break from adding a few new things to my arsenal. There's nothing better than opening up a fresh new product and going to town with the swatches. Let's be real, once a beauty junkie, always a beauty junkie. A few of these products were sent to me while others were purchased with my own money. Nonetheless, here's what's new:

Shiseido Ever Bloom Eau De Toilette* | This popped up in my mailbox super unexpectedly and, to be honest, when I first opened it up I was really 'meh' about it. Only because I'm really picky with my fragrances. A lot of them just end up being too strong and giving me a nose-ache (that's a thing, right?). However, I was surprised to actually be a fan of this one. It's a really light scent that isn't too overpowering. I'm super bad at describing perfumes so here's how they describe it: A musky white floral fragrance that diffuses a delicate scent that delights the senses.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate* | Because of the busy holiday season, I've been neglecting my skin so much. I'm ready to jump back into a long, pampering skin routine. I'm sure that this serum from Shiseido is going to be a perfect addition to it. From what I've read, it defends against aging and damage & it also helps whatever you put on top of it to penetrate deeper into the skin and give you a fuller effect. I'm excited to start using this! 

La Roche-Posay Serozinc | I've been hearing about this face mist for so long, so when I passed by it at the drugstore, I decided to finally snatch it up. As expected, I've been enjoying this a lot. It feels so refreshing on the skin and I love the way it mists. Such a light, even mist.

Stila Eye For Elegance Liquid Eyeshadow Set | The liquid eyeshadows that no one could shut up about. Of course I had to grab me some! Stila came out with this holiday set and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to try them out. Unfortunately they don't have them available anymore (or at least I couldn't find them). I still haven't given them a go, but judging from the way they swatched, they are goooooood. 

Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix* | I was really excited when I found out I was getting a few bits from Nip+Fab. I've only tried their glycolic pads, but overall, I've heard they're a fab brand. This scrub came at the most appropriate time as my skin has been acting a bit weird lately, so I'm going to see if this fixes anything for me. 

Nip + Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Plumping Mask* | This one intrigued me quite a bit as it has 'Dragon's Blood' in it's name. Of course it doesn't have actual dragon's blood, but it really did catch my attention. I'm really interested to see what effect this stuff has on my skin. It's said to plump up the skin to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Kit in Gradient | Sephora was having quite the sale last month and one of them was this blush kit for a super affordable price. I made sure to grab myself one before they sold out. I was surprised at how pigmented these blushes are. Literally all you need is a light tap with your brush and you get the full effect. I've yet to try the right side of the palette on my cheeks, but the two on the left are beautiful!
