Beauty Haul #3- Target, Lush, and the Balm

Hello Everyone! If you read my blog, you will soon find out that I have a shopping problem. I buy way too much makeup and beauty products!! I'm going to share all of my recents beauty product purchases which are from Target, Lush, and some makeup from the Balm that I got off of Hautelook a few weeks ago when it was on sale.

From Target
The first two items I picked up are the Olay oil minimizing toner and the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. These are products that I always repurchase, and I'm almost out of the ones I'm using now. 
These are two products I've never used before. I was wanting to try this Maybelline Clean Express makeup remover but I kept forgetting to pick it up. I thought it looks different than other kinds because the product kind of looks like a gel so I was curious about how this would work. They also have a lotion formula and a liquid one thats for waterproof makeup. I also picked up these Simple cleansing facial wipes because I have been on the hunt for a new kind. I recently tried some by Olay but didn't like them, and I am tired of my Neutrogena ones. These are also cheaper than the Neutrogena ones, and since I go through so many of them they can get expensive!

 This first product is the Covergirl & Olay simple ageless Foundation. Since I liked the Covergirl & Olay simply ageless eye corrector, I thought I would try the Foundation. I love trying new foundations lately and I also love the Covergirl outlast foundation so I am excited to try out this one. The next makeup product is the L'Oreal carbon black extra intense liquid eye pencil. This is the thrid L'Oreal eyeliner I've bought this month (ugh I have a problem!). I recently heard that this is really comparable and a good dupe for the Urban Decay 24/7 liner in perversion, which is why I picked it up because that is my all time favorite eyeliner. Since the UD one is so expensive, I would love a cheaper alternative! The last item I picked up from Target was this little Elf Kabuki brush

From the Balm 
The Balm was on Hautelook a few weeks ago and I got really excited because I have always wanted the Mary Lou Manizer. I love buying makeup off of Hautelook because everything is so cheap! I also picked up an eyeshadow and crease brush, and a loose eyeshadow pigment. 

I absolutely love this highlighter. It's so pretty and it applies so nice to my skin. 
This pigment is really pretty as well. I believe it's called If you're Rich, I'm Single.

Here are swatches of the eyeshadow and the highlighter. 

From Lush

OK, I'm super addicted to these bath bombs by lush. I'm obsessed with using these for some reason. I placed an online order from Lush's website last week because I was buying a gift for someone, so I decided to order 4 bath bombs as well. 

The first one is called Dragons Egg, which is my favorite bath bomb so far. This is my 3rd time buying it and it's probably one that I will always purchase. The second one is called Pink Mini, which I really liked as well. It turned the water hot pink and it smells soo good! 

The next two are called Uluru and Butterball. These are two that I have not tried yet before. I think the Uluru is one that you can only purchase from online. 

This completes my haul, I hope you all enjoyed and thank you for reading!
