Shop Miss A Haul

Hello, loves!  Today I thought I would show you some stuff I recently got from Shop Miss A. Miss A is definitely one of my favorite online shops to order from. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s a $1 beauty shop. They have everything from makeup to jewelry to hair accessories. You should definitely check it out!

Just click on the Miss A image to head over to the site!

Every Package comes bubble wrapped and under that its wrap with pink tissue paper. (Sometimes it’s different colors) I placed two orders about two days apart but they ended up actually coming on the same day which was awesome.

So, let’s get to the goodies, shall we?

I’m going to start off with the items that were the main reason I placed an order. (It was also just a little excuse to buy more things but we won’t talk about that. 😂) First, I’ll start by saying that the products that Shop Miss A make are cruelty-free. And I believe the brands that Shop Miss A sale are also cruelty-free. So, I already knew that Shop Miss A loved animals. But, then they announced that they were starting a charity program called The Paw Paw Charity Program. Where they are going to make limited edition items throughout the year where some of the proceeds will go to different animal charities that Shop Miss A has picked. If you want more info on that you can click here and read what their site says. When I saw on their Instagram that they were releasing the first two products I knew I had to get them.

AOA Studio 5-Piece Ova Brush Set

When I saw these I knew I had to get them! I mean come on! Oval brushes, cruelty-free, only $5.55 AND proceeds are going to animal charities?? How could I not? I have already tried these brushes and all I can say is they are amazing! If you’ve been wanting to try oval brushes but you don’t want to break the bank. Then these are for you. They honestly blend everything so beautifully it’s insane.

AOA Studio Super Soft Wonder Blender – Teardrop & Sculpted

They also released a new wonder blender. I have tried the regular wonder blenders and I’ve loved them for a while now. So when they said they’re were making a new one and it was going to be 2x softer? and pink? How could I resist? I’ve also tried this as well. And I don’t want to talk too much about these because I’m planning on doing a whole post on them and comparing them to another blender. But I will say that I would recommend getting these before they’re gone.

e.l.f. Slant Tweezer

IMG_6079

I just needed a tweezer. So, I just picked up this one. I’ve tried these out already and they work fine. I haven’t had any problems.

AOA Studio Wonder Baked Eyeshadow – Saffron

I was looking at this eyeshadow when it launched but I didn’t get it just because I didn’t know if I would use it as much but then I saw a swatch on @kindnessandicedcoffee‘s Instagram and I knew I needed it! I have used this shadow every day since I’ve gotten it and I love it! It definitely works best wet or just with a cream base.

3-piece Button set – Cactus, Stay Wild & TV

When I saw that shop miss a started selling buttons I got very excited!  I just got three packs of three but there are a bunch more on there. I’ve already put these on my denim jacket and I’m in love with them! Highly recommend!

Princessa PerfectWear Eyeshadow Stick – Copper Frost

I was looking for a copper shadow and when I saw this I thought this would be perfect. It is really pretty but the only thing it is a little dry. It’s just not a creamy as I thought it would be. But other than that it’s really pretty.

AOA Studio F19 Highlighting Brush

I’ve been looking at this brush for so long but every time I would want to place an order it was out of stock but this time when I went to go look at it to get it it was in stock! So I got it and I’m so glad I did! This is my new favorite highlighting brush and I HIGHLY recommend it! It’s absolutely amazing.

AOA Studio Wonder Cover – Porcelain 

I’ve actually had this concealer before and absolutely hated it. It just didn’t really blend out and when I did get it to blend out it looked horrible. Just patchy and cakey looking. So, I just ended up throwing it out. But I have bought two color correctors from the same line and really liked those. So I thought I would get another one and see if I just got a bad one or something. I’m glad I did. Because I actually like it now. It blends out much better than my last one and seemed to look a lot better when I blended it out. I use it for spot concealing because it is quite a full coverage concealer.

AOA Studio E122 Small Flat Shader Brush

FullSizeRender 25

When I was looking at brushes I wanted to get some more AOA Studio brushes but most of the brushes that they have are pretty basic brushes that I already have. I decided to get a brush that I didn’t have. And I go this one. All the brushes that I’ve tried from AOA Studio have really impressed me. This brush is good for packing on a shadow. And I also think it would be good for carving out your lid for a cut crease or carving out your brows. It’s  also good for highlighting your brow bone too.

AOA Studio Wonder Matte – Trend

I saw this color swatched on @didymosphenia‘s Instagram and thought it would be a perfect orange kind of nude for fall. And I was right. I already have two other Wonder Mattes and I’m in love with the formula. Highly recommend.

AOA Studio Wonder Liplocks – Chai & Latte

I already have two other liplocks and I really enjoyed the formula so I thought I would get some other colors. Latte is the lighter pink kind of color and Chai is the darker more nude color. Latte is a little too light for me to wear on its own but it is pretty in the center of the lip for an ombre lip. Chai, on the other hand, is AMAZING. It’s the perfect fall shade that’s not too dark, not too light and I just love the tone of it as well.

A2o Lab Face Mask – Hydrating

FullSizeRender 14

I’ve actually already tried a lot of the a2o face masks and really liked the hydrating one especially. So I decided to get another one for the winter time.

AOA Studio Wonder Skin Perfecting Blur Primer

I saw this when it launched and I was kinda on the fence with getting it. But then I saw on @shopmissa‘s Instagram that this was supposedly a dupe for a YLS primer. And I wanted to try it to see if it was any good. Now the first thing I noticed when I used this is that the “gold flakes” are just really small gold glitter. So, it doesn’t kinda disappear you just see gold glitter. But I don’t see it after I put foundation on so that’s good. I do think that it blurs and it feels really good on the face. Feels moisturizing too so I like that.

AOA Studio Mini Wonder Blender

FullSizeRender

When I was looking for the Paw Paw sponges I saw these and was quite surprised because I hadn’t heard anything about these before and then I just found them. I have tried this and do really like it. The point is really good for getting right up in the inner corner and under the eye. I’ve also used it for baking and it seems to work well for that too.

So, that’s it for my Shop Miss A haul. Have you tried any AOA Studio products? If you have, tell me in the comments below!

MORE Monday •∆• Skincare Check-in

Hello, loves! Today I’m going to be talking about the skincare in my First Impressions post. I wanted to check back in with you all to tell you if I still like the products and if my first impression ratings have changed.

Let’s get in to it.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water Cleansing Water – All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover

img_9779n

I love this. It removes my makeup really well. It hasn’t irritated my skin in any way. When I run out of this I’m defiantly going to repurchase it.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent

img_9776ih

Like I said in my first impressions post, I feel like it cleanses my skin and gets everything that the makeup remover and face wash may have missed. I also said in that post that there was a little irritation but I feel like my skin has gotten used to it.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer

img_9777ih

I also said in the other post I like the thin consistency. There was a day where it irritated my skin so bad where I had to wash it off of my face. But, I decided to give it a few more tries. I haven’t had another day like that one again. I don’t know what happened that day but it hasn’t happened since.

Rating: 4 out of 5

So, that’s it for this post. I hope you enjoyed the first impression post and this one. Thanks for reading.
