Hey guys, welcome back to my channel. I hope you’re having a great day so far So today’s video is going to be kind of like a spring related haul video. I picked up some makeup I grabbed a few things that I needed to repurchase and then just a couple of new products nothing too crazy, but I thought I would also include some clothing as well It has been so long since I’ve done a clothing related video I want to say over like a year maybe two I used to do them on my channel all the time and I get requests all the time to do something like fashion related clothing related just to switch it up So I thought maybe I could do a clothing haul every once in a while I don’t buy a ton of clothing, but I am kind of in the middle of like a weight loss journey so when the new seasons roll around it’s fun to grab a few new things to kind of incorporate with my older products as well So if you like this video, let me know and I can do them more often I do want to say thank you to Shoptagr for sponsoring today’s video you guys I talk about Shoptagr so much but I love Shoptagr I use it every single time I shop online which is basically every week and no matter what I’m shopping for whether it’s clothing home decor, makeup I use Shoptgar and if you do any online shopping, you can definitely benefit It’s a super helpful web app so you actually save products to your account and when anything goes on sale it will email you letting you know the price drop so you can get it for a discounted price It also notifies you when out of stock products come back in stock So it just keeps you very organized if you guys aren’t already using Shoptagr it’s so easy to use and it’s completely free All you have to do is download it and then you install the browser button on your computer so when you’re doing your shopping all you do is click the Shoptagr button to save the product to your account that way if that product goes on sale or if it’s out of stock and you want to be notified once it comes back in stock Shoptagr will email you letting you know and if you download the Shoptagr app on your phone You can also get a push notification letting you know as well because I do some shopping from my phone as well So I do use the app does have the option to organize your products into different lists and different categories It just helps to keep things a little bit more organized especially if you use it for everything like I do so I have like a clothing list a gift idea list and then like hair products makeup skincare and that way if I’m shopping for something specific or I want to check to see if it’s in my account I can just click on that category So if you guys aren’t using Shoptagr, I will link it in the description box below I know I talk about it a lot but it’s because it’s something that I truly believe in and I know a lot of you guys have actually tried it and you love it as well if you’re on a budget or you just want to save money where you can Shoptagr really does come in handy So I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do Okay, let me show you the things that I picked up from Sephora and then I’ll show you the clothing So I repurchased a couple of products I was trying to hold out for the Sephora VIB sale to grab a few of these things but I’m not 100% sure when it is I think in general it’s around April So I am holding off on a few things but the Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Cream is something that I just felt like I couldn’t wait for it to go on sale I was willing to pay full price.
It is the perfect moisturizer for my skin I know a lot of people out there enjoy this product but I just haven’t experienced anything that makes my skin look and feel so beautiful. It does moisturize my skin really well It’s just a very like fluffy texture but it provides lasting hydration throughout the day and it sinks into the skin well it does not leave your skin feeling and looking dewy or oily or greasy It just sinks then it leaves you with like a soft satin finish, but it lasted me all winter I think I started using the other one maybe in like October November and I don’t use it sparingly I use it in more in the morning and at night and it’s March and I’m just now having to repurchase it so I don’t mind doing that especially because it does seem to last awhile but it just is a product that I love and I love using it.
Another one of my favorite skincare lines is Ole Henriksen and they did release a new product. I was so excited when I saw this product on Instagram It is the Banana Bright Face Primer so this is kind of like a makeup primer with skincare benefits or a makeup primer and moisturizer all in one I love the Banana Bright eye cream it is my favorite eye cream ever I’ve repurchased it so many times at this point that I can’t even count so I kind of feel like anything that’s marketed in the same way is going to be something that really intrigues me because I love that product so much and I love moisturizing face primers, even though I have oily skin I don’t typically prefer like oil controlling or mattifying face primers I just think moisturizing face primers allow your foundation to go on top so beautifully, okay it looks and feels almost identical to the Banana Bright Eye Cream.
It has a citrus scent. It doesn’t smell like bananas I would say that it’s a little bit thinner than the eye cream which is probably good because the eye cream is very very thick and very hydrating, this feels really moisturizing, but it feels really creamy at the same time Okay, so I feel like it’s making my skin look really smooth I don’t know if you can see a difference between these two hands this one looks more moisturized and glowy than this one and it definitely looks brighter like my skin is pretty red toned, some of my skin is very yellow toned some is very red toned My hands are usually pretty red but next to each other like this one just looks brighter and smoother honestly upon application I think it’s going to be a really good option if you like moisturizing primers, but I’ll definitely try it out keep you guys posted I’m really excited to use it The other new product that I picked up is something that I am taking a little bit of a chance on I told you guys that I really try to think through my makeup purchases before buying something but every once in a while I do think it’s fun to try something that might not typically be something I would go for right away and I wasn’t going to buy this but I watched a ton of reviews on it from people that I really trust and I saw how it applied I saw the techniques they used and I think it’s something that could work for me but something that can also take me out of my comfort zone in a good way So it is the Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow palette.
So this is what the palette looks like It is a small a compact palette that comes with four different cheek products The packaging is beautiful and it’s going to be so nice for traveling if you like to have a couple of different options in one sleek palette it comes with two cream cheek products and two powder products The cream cheek products are hidden underneath this little plastic piece which is a really nice touch so you don’t mix like the powders and the creams together When I first saw pictures of this, I thought it was gorgeous and so stunning but I thought a lot of the shades were not going to work for my skin tone after watching a few reviews online I saw that the products are very customizable so you can build them up to get more of an intense vibrant look or sheer them out for more of a like light natural glow so you get this glow cream base and then you also get this vibrant cream blush you get a duo glow and a glow extreme.
The glow cream base is so subtle I don’t know if you can even see that on my hand. Here’s the blush I did go in with a pretty heavy swatch, but I also sheered it out So I think if I was applying it to my cheeks, I’d even go in with a little bit less but you can definitely sheer it out I mean, it looks so intimidating in the pan but on the hand, it’s just like a really pretty stained flushed effect So here is the glow extreme and then here is the duo glow.
Oh wow That one’s probably even more vibrant than I thought it was going to be that’s going to be so pretty on the eyes as well The thing about me is that I love glowy blushes I almost like I almost like blushes that look like they’re supposed to be highlighters So I definitely think I could get some use out of this I am just excited to use it and maybe it won’t work for me I’m hoping that it will but I think that I kind of get into a rut when it comes to certain products and right now I’m kind of in a blush rut again I’ll definitely use it in a get ready with me and use the products on camera and we can kind of test it out together and see how it works So I did repurchase a shampoo and conditioner favorite and I I didn’t think I was going to back go back to these because they’re a little bit pricey I’m currently using the Yes to Carrots shampoo and conditioner and those are like $12 each and you get a pretty big bottle and I love those but I do think my hair is getting used to them This is a product that I used to love but I think my hair got used to these So now that I’ve switched it up for a couple of months I think it’s safe to go back to them but I do love Briogeo and I know these products work well I’ve repurchased it this set many many times so it’s $48 for the set but I really enjoy this one So this one is their Super Foods hair pack.
My hair is just feeling a little bit dry and these products are very moisturizing I need a good haircut like the ends of my hair are very dry and it’s time to chop them I’m thinking about taking extreme measures may be like going this short But we’ll see anyways let’s jump into the clothing part of the video So like I told you guys I am in the process of losing weight which has been an interesting journey a long journey It is going much more slowly than I thought it would but I am happy with the progress I’ve lost like 30 pounds over the past year It would have been more by now, but I gained a little weight over the holidays I was so sick for like two months and I just kind of took a little bit of time off So I’ve been back to it since like end of January beginning of February and my family and I are going on a cruise in a week I’m so excited, but I don’t really have any spring or summer clothing that fits well so I did pick up a few things I got a few things from Express and then a couple of other stores I’ll show you what I got from Express first and I did film like little quick clips of me trying the clothes on which I’ll insert in the video I’m trying to think which side I normally insert the clips that I think on this side.
So let me move over Okay, so I did get two dresses. We probably will dress up for dinner a couple of nights probably not every night and I think I do have like one or two dresses that will work So I didn’t want to go crazy I’m not like a big dress person but I figured I could wear both of these throughout the summer if I ever needed to wear another dress So the first one is this one.
I got a size large I actually originally got an extra large, but it was way too big which was a pleasant surprise I will say but this is such a pretty dress. It was super super discounted It’s just like a very long maxi dress and it has like a really pretty like floral pattern on it I love this shade of red because I think it could be worn pretty much all year like spring summer fall winter It just depends on what you pair it with but I like this because it’s not too low-cut but it also like cinches in at the waist and then the front of it is a little bit open so I just think that’s a little bit more fun and flattering then like one that just completely hits the ground all the way around because then you can see your legs and you can see your shoes so you could wear cute shoes with it and I really really like this one.
I also like the sleeves I’m not a big fan of like sleeveless dresses. So I like that the sleeves are short sleeves, which is nice for warmer days I also picked up this dress this is probably not one that I- it’s definitely not one that I would have paid full price for but it was on sale for like $18 So I thought it was like a cute casual dress.
You could totally dress it down with like a jean jacket I’ll probably just wear it with like a light sweater. I would probably dress this one down in the clip I’m wearing like heels I wouldn’t wear heels with this I’d probably draw on like low sandals or even maybe sneakers if I was doing something really casual So I got the sweater that I’m wearing This one is in a medium and I think a medium is a good size because it just seems to fit well at first I wasn’t sure how I felt about it because it’s definitely a different cut they call it like a circle hem sweater It’s like long in the front long in the back and then cut up on the sides So you could wear it with like jeans or leggings and I think it’s a nice alternative to a sweatshirt I’m a big sweatshirt fan, but sometimes sweatshirts are just way too casual so I like wearing this with like black jeans and heels and you could dress it up dress it down and it’s really really comfortable It’s really lightweight, but I think it would still keep you warm in the colder weather I mean we’re heading into spring so I think I’ll be able to wear this for a few more months and then again in the fall I also got this cardigan and I don’t know how I feel about it like the cardigan itself is really nice it’s very soft but anytime I buy a cardigan I I don’t know why I do because I’m not a big cardigan fan I don’t know what it is they just make me feel I don’t know how they make me feel I just don’t feel like super cute when I wear a cardigans, but this one is very soft and I think it might be good for a more casual day but at the same time if I’m going for a casual look, I’ll just wear like a hoodie So I don’t know this one is in a medium and I think it’s a good size because it’s not too large it’s not too small it’s like the perfect in between and I just threw it on in the clip for you guys over like a black t shirt from Express and leggings and again, it’s so soft It’s so comfortable, but I just don’t know that I’m big on cardigans And then the last thing I got from Express is this bathing suit cover-up.
This is so cute It actually looks more flattering in person than it does in the clip. This doesn’t have a ton of shape to it So when you wear it, it just kind of looks like it’s like straight and then the bottom flares out a little bit So I feel like it almost makes you look bigger on the bottom than you are but at the same time it’s a bathing suit cover-up, so I’m kind of like who cares? I mean I’m just going to be like by the pool or on the beach and I thought this one was fun because it’s black I love black, I love neutrals, but it does have like this coral accent to it which is really pretty and then on the bottom, it has like these little pom-poms, which is so fun and then I got a few things from some random places.
So this is from H&M I actually just picked this up in store when we were in H&M last time and I saw it and I thought it was like a perfect sweater for spring. This is in the size extra large It’s definitely more of like a baggy style I felt like I could have sized down but at the same time whenever you size down clothes get shorter and I’m not like all about crop tops for sure.
So I felt like this was a good size I don’t mind that it’s like a little bit oversized a little bit baggy It is pretty see through and I think I’d have to wear something underneath it, but it’s super comfortable really lightweight but I just think it will be fun to have for spring and I love the color and then I got a few things from American Eagle I don’t shop there super often but they do have a lot of really cute kind of like boho inspired shirts during the summertime and sweaters and kimonos So every once in a while, I will grab something.
This is a really cute shirt This is in a size small I had ordered this in a medium and I just feel like the medium was too big It is supposed to be a little bit of an oversized shirt but I would definitely recommend sizing down and if you’re pretty small like if you normally wear small I would just skip the shirt altogether the back of this is really pretty as well.
It just kind of has like this crisscross like string design and if you are into like more flowy boho style shirts this one could be really fun for summer I’ll probably wear that one with like ripped jeans or jean shorts, but in the clip I just threw it on over leggings and then this isn’t really spring related but I purchased a sweatshirt you guys I live for sweatshirts if I could wear yoga pants and sweatshirts every day I would I mean who wouldn’t I just love them.
So I had purchased this sweatshirt from American Eagle I had gotten like a gray and black version. I’ve worn it in a few videos and it’s so soft so warm and cozy and this one was marked down really significantly, so I picked this one up.
I just got a large. It’s pretty oversized so if you don’t want an oversized sweatshirt, I would recommend sizing down for sure but I like my sweatshirts to just be oversized and comfortable and I thought this color combo was really really cute So I’m excited about this one.
Okay, guys, that is the end of my video. Thank you so much for watching I hope you guys enjoyed today’s video if you like clothing hauls, let me know I feel like this one like the setup wasn’t exactly ideal If you do like them next time I can set my camera up and maybe do like a full 360 as I try the clothes on but I just figured I would film like a quick clip on my phone so you could see what they looked like but it was fun.
I I like switching it up every once in awhile and if you do like clothing hauls let me know and I can do them more often when I do shop which isn’t a whole lot but anyways, I will keep you guys posted on the new products that I picked up from Sephora So stay tuned for that and again, if you want to check out Shoptagr, I will link it in the description box below but I’ll see you guys very soon with a new video.
