Beauty Haul + Mini Reviews

Beauty Haul + First Impresiions - Southern New Yorker

Morning, Lovelies! I've recently picked up a few bits and pieces from the drugstore, ULTA, and Sephora, and I thought I would share my mini-haul today with you! Some of these are repurchases of things that I love, and some are completely new! 

Beauty Haul + First Impressions - Southern New Yorker

Aveeno Positivly Radiant Cleanser

I've been using the Aveeno Positivly Radiant Moisturizer for about 5 years now, and have always loved it, so when I started a search for a new gentle daily cleanser, it just made sense to grab it's matching face wash! I've been using it for about two weeks now along with a few other new skincare items, and my skin has honestly never looked better! (Look out for reviews, and an updated skincare routine in the future, I've found some gems!)

LUSH Marilyn Hair Mask

This is my third tub of this miracle in a jar! The hair mask is specially formulated for blondes who need a ton of moisture and a bit of brightening (Note: also works amazing on lighter-brown hair tones that want a little summer lift!) What can I say? It brightens, it hydrates, it makes hair uber-soft and smell amazing! For more bottle-blonde products and tips check out Bottle Blonde 101 and Best Products for Bottle Blondes!

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Dry-shampoo is my best friend. For someone who only washes their hair every 3-4 days, it's an absolute necessity! I've tried a ton from both the drugstore and high-end, and as far as budget options, you can't beat Batiste! They have a wide range of scents, which will make your hair smell like it's freshly washed, and it definitely delivers in the oil-soak-up department! Even better, if you have darker hair, they make a colored version so you won't end up with white residue in your roots!

Benefit Porefessional

Primer has become a must-have in my beauty routine ever since my skin decided to switch from normal to oily and this little gem is amazing at smoothing out the skin, minimizing all those pores, and keeping oil at bay! This is my second tube of it, and it will definitely become a staple in my collection!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

I've heard so much about these inexpensive little lippies over the past few months, and while taking a stroll around ULTA, I spotted a stand of them! I picked up two, in the shades Cannes and Prague. They go on very creamy, and dry very matte within a few minutes, and are beautiful on the lips! I will say, they can be a bit heavy to wear, and they don't last nearly as long as the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, but for the price, they are amazing! 

L'Oreal False Fiber Lashes

I've sung the praises of L'Oreal's waterproof Million Lashes mascara in tons of posts (It's my favorite drugstore mascara!) So I decided to try out another one of L'Oreal's mascaras! I'm hoping this one can lengthen and volumize in the same way as the Million Lashes, but be a little easier to get off at night. We'll see!
