Affordable Beauty Haul

Hello Everyone!


I'm all about budgeting. I love to coupon and find good deals on products especially beauty products which can be costly. So today I bring you my first affordable beauty haul for 2019. Last  week I mentioned that I was decluttering my makeup.
.throwing away old makeup, giving away or selling  some of my makeup. Once again please check your makeup! Old makeup can harbor a lot of bacteria, especially mascara. Incase you missed it, you can see a few of my other beauty purchases in my recent post, The Weekend Went Like This... 

Target and Ulta


I had to throw out some of my NYC Jumbo Eye Pencils that were old, so I replaced them when I went to Target. I also came across a few Pixi Products. I absolutely love the H2-0 skin drink! I already another one of these moisturizers from Christmas and it works wonders for my skin. I'm also replacing some of my older makeup brushes and I saw this Morphe M124 Brush. Morphe Brushes are so affordable and great quality!


I was hoping that Ulta had the new Morphe Foundation and Concealer, but those won't be available at my local Ulta until sometime next week. I really wanted to swatch the testers.  I needed to get a few beauty products, and I'm so happy I saw these ELF Mask Brushes. I really don't like using traditional makeup brushes to apply face masks so hopefully these brushes will work well. Since it's so cold, I thought I'd add this ELF Nourishing Night Cream from Target to my skincare routine to prevent dry skin. If you've used this night cream, let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

Victoria's Secret


I really love matte liquid lipsticks. If you didn't know Victoria's Secret started marketing their beauty again. For a couple of years I noticed they discontinued their makeup products, but I'm glad to see some of them back. I saw this Bombshell Mini Body Mist, and it smells really nice. The scent is a mixture of sweet, fresh, and floral. I see why the perfume is popular!


I had to switch up hair care products again. Hopefully Tresemmé will work for my hair.

Thanks Paola! Have a great weekend!

I always make sure I don't use make products for too long. Sometimes I used them to make art, to recycle them but if I don't have time for them, I just throw them away.

This is a lovely make up haul. Taking advantages of discounts and coupons is a great way to be more ecological.

Out of all the counter shampoos. Tresemme is what I find works the best for me. I used the one for strengthening. I need to check out that body mist from VS. I love floral scents if they are light. I do not want to smell like I used perfume. I just want to smell fresh and clean.

Oh dear! that is excellent haul.

Susie said...

Pilar, Those are good tips about getting rid of old makeup. Especially the mascara. I have found that some economical makeups are as good as the pricey stuff. Blessings to you, Hope you are enjoying your new year sweetie. xoxo, Susie

I'm curious about those ELF Mask Brushes!

Pilar said...

Thanks Ivana! I agree it's better to throw some makeup products away. Old makeup can harbor so much bacteria. I love a good sale! Very ecological indeed!

The Dainty Dolls House said...

I love when I get new stuff in and toss out the old stuff, it's so good. These look brilliant as well. You got some really fantastic things. The brush and mask tool looks fab, reminds me to get something like that myself :)) I hope you have a great week ahead lovely xx

Pilar said...

I'm hopeful that Tresemme will work for my hair! Every so often I have to change shampoos and conditioners for my hair. I love Bombshell at VS! This scent doesn't smell like used perfume. I think you would like it!

Pilar said...

Thanks! Bombshell smells wonderful!

Pilar said...

Thanks Krishna!

Pilar said...

Thanks Susie! I agree some drugstore brands are just as good as high end brands. I do wish drugstore brands would step up the eyeshadows. I would love to see that! Blessings to you, and I hope you're enjoying your new year as well!

Pilar said...

Hoping for the best with Tresemme!

Pilar said...

I hope the mask brushes work well!

Pilar said...

Thanks Kizzy! I'm pretty good on throwing away old products. I try to give away or sell gently used makeup. I hope you have a great week as well!

Okcheori Roseline said...

great haul! you have a lot of skincare and makeup equipment. I have never tried them but one day I will try it!
sometimes I feel a waste of money if I throw away all the skincare that has been used for a long time so I just use it.

Would you like to follow each other? If the answer is yes, please follow me on my blog & I'll follow you back.

Great buy awesome products need to try elf night cream.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Yes mascara is the worse when it comes to harboring bacteria. I try to toss mine every 3 months because I really don't want to get an eye infection.

Beauty Unearthly said...

Interesting post dear!

Pilar said...

Thank Rosaline! I just reorganized my skincare set up. I actually need to get another acrylic box for my skincare products.

Pilar said...

Thanks Jackie!

Pilar said...

I agree! I toss my mascaras after 3 months as well!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Marie said...

Those NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils work well on my lids for a base. I wear them for eyeshadow in general! Does the VS spray last throughout the day? Such a great haul!

Pilar said...

Thanks Marie! Those NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are good to wear as eyeshadow too! As much as I love the body mist, it isn't long lasting. I can only hope the Bombshell Perfume lasts longer. The body spray does smell amazing though!

Marie said...

I think I might try the perfume since the body doesn't last!

Pilar said...

The perfume smells good too!
