7 Recent Beauty Purchases

At the end of the last semester, I took nearly all my beauty products back home, where I used them up during the summer break. So, uni started one week ago and I came back to my dorm room, where nearly no beauty product existed –  so, it was time to hit the shops! As I’m a woman, and therefore a big fan of shopping, I bought a lot of new beauty products and since I haven’t tried any of those before, I thought it was time for a little blog post.

I actually picked up two new products for my face. On the one hand, we have the Hydra Bomb sheet mask from Garnier. TBH, I don’t know why I haven’t tried this mask before! However, I think Estée Lalonde mentioned it multiple times in videos and I always wanted it! Can’t wait to finally put it on my face! On the other hand, I picked up a new peeling from Marbert. Speaking of skincare, Marbert is probably one of my all-time favourite brands, because they have really good products at a reasonable price and I loved all of the things I’ve tried yet. Of course, it’s impossible to rate any beauty products after a single use, but so for I really enjoy using my new peeling.

Make up
Besides those two skincare items, I also picked up two new beauty products. First things first, I purchased another shade from the Sleek Matte Me liquid lipstick range - Birthday Suit! These lipsticks are honestly the best ones I’ve ever used! I know that bloggers are throwing around this phrase a lot and therefore it has lost its significance, but these lipsticks are well and truly my favourites! You can kiss, eat a four-course menu, jump into water or do anything you want – this lipstick will stay at its place. AND it’ is really comfortable to wear. AWESOME! The second thing I picked up, is a mascara and of course it had to be the L’Oréal Paradise Extatic Mascara. If you want to know my opinion to this massively hyped product – I think it’s a good mascara and I really like the finish! - but TBH, I don’t get the hype.

Hair care
When I came to my flat, I didn’t have any shampoo, which is a big issue when your hair needs a wash at least every two days. This time, I tried out a totally new brand and picked up a shampoo from ogx, which has biotin and collagen in it. Since I’m studying biotechnology, I love the combination of science and beauty, so I was sold! Despite that, my hair is really thin and it actually needs a bit of extra proteins and vitamins. And I have to say, it literally feels like this shampoo is doing its job and I really like it so far! To add even more volume and texture to my hair, I finally found a texturizing spray, which actually works. It’s from Tony & Guy and OMG, I love the smell!!! I think there’re aren’t a lot of people who’ll get this reference but I think this product smells like an ‘advent wreath’. For the Non-Austrians, it smells like conifers and it reminds me of Christmas – LOVE IT! Now I stop being enthusiastic like a weirdo, and tell you something about my last beauty pick – the 3 Miracle Oil Reconstructor from Aussie. In my point of view, this is a great hair oil! I really enjoy using it as it gives me a very beautiful finish, but doesn’t feel heavy or anything like that at all.

So, these’re all of my recent beauty purchases and let me know in the comment, what you recently picked up! If you want to stay up-to-date, subscribe, simply follow me on Instagram @the_fandf_club or on Bloglovin’!
