Collective Beauty Haul

Hello hello hello! Hope you are all doing well! Today I bring you a Collective (keyword here!) Beauty Haul. Please not that all of these items were purchased over a period over a few months time and not all at once! This haul features a lot of make up items and nail polishes. Let me know if you have tried any of these products before or if you would like to see future reviews!
BATH & BODY
Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo & Conditioner as well as St. Ives Even & Bright Body Wash. I switched my shampoo over to a L'Oreal one (big mistake - I ended up chucking it out) and it started to ruin my hair; and so I was on the hunt for a quick fix. I have used Garnier products before and decided to pick this pair up while on an impromptu drugstore shopping trip with my bestie. I picked up this particular duo purely for the fact that I have coloured hair and this seemed to have color-shielding properties. Did anyone else know that St. Ives did Body Washes?! Or am I late on the bandwagon again? I have this same Even & Bright combination in a facial scrub form by St. Ives (not shown) and I love it so much that when I saw this body wash, I literally jumped for joy! 
HAIR & HAIR REMOVAL: 
Got2b Dry Shampoo, Persian Cold Wax, Got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Hairspray, random hair ties and scrunchies. I talk about dry shampoo way too much on this blog (sorry, not sorry) BUT I love my Got2b Dry Shampoo too much not to share my love with you! If you are interested in a review on my fave dry shampoo then click here. The Persian Cold Wax kit is a second time purchase of mine and one that i've grown to love. If you are on the market for an at home wax kit, then give this a shot! I've actually been wanting to do a review on this product for a while now, but sometimes hair removal reviews can be a little sticky (get it!?!?). Let me know if you'd be interested in one! The hair scrunchies and hair ties are a must have for pulling up my lions mane when it's getting in the way, while the Got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Hairspray, helps keep fly aways down and my hair under control! 
LIP COLOUR & LIP CARE:
So here are a few lip products I decided I most definitely needed, all were hauled except for the Burt's Bee's Pomegranate Oil lip balm which was a gift from a friend (Hello JP!). Aside from that, I chose two metallic lip sticks from N.Y.C and a metallic lip balm from Nivea. I actually detest metallic on the lips but for some reason these really struck my fancy. I've gotten into lip products a lot recently, not quite sure why as I much prefer eye products but no complaints here! 
FACE: 
I didn't go too crazy with products more the face this time around. I just needed a new daily moisturizer and came across this Nivea Aqua Effect Mattifying Day Care Moisturizer with Ocean Algae and Hydra IQ. I've never tried this before but I had a good look at it while in the store and after checking out the price, I just had to try it out! Any other moisturizer recommendations would be much appreciated!
EYES: 
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner has been on my to-buy list for a little while now, and since I am obsessed with blue eyeliner, I decided to get the 004 Blue shade! It's beautiful, isn't it? I can't wait to use this, however, I am a little skeptical of the brush but I can't hate until I try it! 
TOOLS:
I stopped into Sephora one day just for a quick "peep" in the store. Only a peep (since i'm on my saving game! More on that later...). While I was having a little browse around the store, I suddenly remembered I was in desperate need of a new sharpener. I know, silly right? Out of all the things I could buy at Sephora, I bought the simplest thing ... a pencil sharpener. But no worries, this was a need; and hopefully you will see a Sephora "want" sometime soon! 
EYES: 
I've been looking for a new mascara that was affordable and good for every day use. My Rimmel London Extra Wow Lash Mascara is my new favourite. It's great for a very natural make up look or when you don't want to feel like you are actually wearing any make up. Believe it or not, I bought two of these bad boys for two reasons: because they were on sale and because I loved the consistency. I did a try-before-you-buy while I was in the store just to have a quick look at the brush and overall consistency of the product. I've been using if for the past few weeks now and even tried it out on my little sister for Halloween! Keep your eyes peeled for a full review, here on the blog! 
NAILS:
I'm not quite sure why but, but I've been a bit nail polish crazy this last little while. Almost every shopping trip, I find myself ogling at polishes - so much so that i've bought doubles of the same shades! I'm normally a dark-polish-kinda-girl; but in this haul i've chosen some glitter polishes as well as a white shade! I can't wait to try these polishes out using different combinations. You may be seeing quite a few nail posts coming up so stay tuned!! In this particular haul, i've featured brands from Rimmel London, Sally Hansen as well as L'Oreal. Let me know which ones (from above) are your faves!

I hope you enjoyed this lengthy beauty haul of mine, it's been ages since I did one of these posts. I actually really enjoy writing haul posts but not as much as the actually hauling of course!
