HAULIN': What I Spent my Eidi On

For those who don't know, Eid is a holiday celebrated by Muslims and it marks the end of our holy month of fasting. On this day, we sometimes get money from our elders. Along with some previous savings, I'd been able to gather a substantial amount of money this Eid and I thought, like all beauty addicts,"Why not buy more makeup?". All of the things mentioned in this post were purchased from the facebook store, Wishlist.




AUSSIE THREE MINUTE MIRACLE DEEEEEP CONDITIONER:




If you've been following my blog for a while now, you'll know that I'm in love with the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque which is an amazing deep conditioner. The only downside of that product is that the price of it is quite steep. I thought that the Aussie Three Minute Miracle might be a good alternative.


TOO FACED PRIMED AND PORELESS LOOSE POWDER:




I have oily, acne prone skin with pores the size of pot holes. I've managed to reduce my pores quite a bit, but they are sometimes still visible even after I've used primer and pressed powder. Maybe this little beauty can help solve that problem. And, who can't love the adorable Too Faced packaging!?


TOO FACED PRIMED AND PORELESS SKIN SMOOTHING PRIMER:




I've been using the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil Free for a while now and I've been running low on it. Instead of getting another one, I thought it'd be a good idea to try out this primer by Too Faced instead. 


NARS POWDER BLUSH IN DEEP THROAT:




I was itching to get the Nars powder blush in Orgasm, but I've heard that due to the insane amount of shimmer in it, it has the ability to highlight pores. That was just a big no- no for me, so instead, I went for Deep Throat instead. It's almost the same as Orgasm, minus the intense shimmer. 


ORIGINS CLEAR IMPROVEMENT CHARCOAL MASK:




One of my favorite beauty gurus on instagram swears by this mask. It's also been included in one of her monthly favorites. After reading some rave reviews online, I was convinced to buy this. I was a bit dumbfounded when I saw how tiny the bottle was, especially considering that it was expensive for a face mask. Let's just hope this works wonders. 


So, ladies (and gentlemen), now you know what I spent my Eidi on! I'm so excited to try out and review everything. 

Did you splurge on anything recently? I'd love to know!

P.S. I'm extremely sorry if the pictures seem low quality. I have having some serious camera and lighting issues.
