Hey, I'm Tenneil

I live in Perth, Australia, and this is my creative outlet where I blog about beauty, my life and everything in between. I enjoy the '80s, the '90s and anything French, and some of my favourite things in life include music,  film, summer and a nice cup of tea.

Beauty Haul

Beauty Haul

In case you're wondering, all these items weren't purchased in one lot! I've been meaning to do a beauty haul for a while, but never got around to it until now, so here's just one massive post of all the lovely beauty products I've bought over the past few months.

Topshop lipstick in Infared: I love anything orange/coral, so when I saw Zoe wearing this, I knew I needed it. This is a lovely colour that could suit any skin tone, I think. If you don't feel daring enough to wear red, a bright coral is a just as fun alternative.

Revlon Nutri Colour Creme in #556 Mahogany: after a bad hair dye job at the hairdressers where my red highlights faded literally after one wash, I decided to buy this product, which Sarah mentioned in this video as being a great product to maintain hair colour. I'm so happy with this product as it made my hair colour look really fresh again while also conditioning it. It basically acts as a nourishing hair mask while also colouring your hair and I love this handy two in one product.

Harajuku Lovers 'Wicked Baby' fragrance: my post-Japan blues made me purchase this! I absolutely fell in love with Harajuku during my stay in Tokyo, so I decided I really wanted a Harajuku Lovers perfume. Wicked Baby is a lovely fruity/vanilla smell and it lasts all day long.

Estée Lauder Idealist Pore Minimising Skin Refinisher: I'm in love with the Advanced Night Repair serum, so I really wanted to give this a try. I think this is one of those products you don't exactly see doing anything, but I'm really enjoying using face serums as they do nothing but wonders to the skin.

Avène Lotion Micellaire and Eau Thermale: I've done a review on the Lotion Micllaire, which you can see here, so I won't go into that, but when I bought it, I also bought the Thermal Spring Water too. It's basically water in a mist spray form, but it's so refreshing and I definitely got use of it while holidaying in the Bali humidity.

Soap & Glory Pulp Friction exfoliator and The Righteous Butter: I absolutely adore Soap & Glory as a brand with it's girly pink retro packaging and witty names. I have to admit, I did buy Pulp Friction purely for the name (if you haven't seen the movie Pulp Fiction, you must!), though I was in need of a new body scrub. I really love this product as it smells absolutely lovely and when I got out of the shower, my legs were so silky smooth! I think The Righeous Butter really helped with that too. I wasn't sure if it would live up to The Body Shop's Body Butters, but I think I like The Righteous Butter even more as it's not as thick, therefore sinks into the skin faster. I decided to get the pump bottle is it was cheaper and more convenient. These two products work wonders together.

Inglot Freedom System Palette: I had been so curious to try Inglot products, so I made my first dip into the brand by buying a three eyeshadows and blush Freedom System Palette. The brand definitely lives up to its name of being really pigmented and so easy to apply. The blush and eyeshadow colours from left to right are: 29, 348 Matte, 434 Pearl and 420 Pearl.

Paris cosmetic bag: I bought this super large cosmetic bag from Myer as I couldn't get over the print! If you don't know, I am pretty much obsessed with anything Eiffel Tower print. I absolutely love this bag, not just for the print, but it's so good for travelling as it holds all my skincare products in just the one big bag. I keep my make up in the travel bag as seen in this blog post and I love how they're both French themed!

Urban Decay Eyelash Primer Potion and Eyeshadow Transforming Potion: I've used Urban Decay's Eyelash Primer Potion before and loved it, which is why I decided to purchase it again after running out. It really gives the effect of non-dramatic false lashes. I bought it from eBay and when I opened my package, it was the Eyeshadow Transforming Potion, which I did not order. The seller told me to keep it and that she'd send me out the correct product I ordered. It was really nice of her, though I'm not sure if i'll use it a lot! I suppose it'll be fun to experiment with.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat in #8: this is a repurchase of a holy grail product that I absolutely adore. It gets rid of dark circles so easily, while brightening the skin and I just feel so luxurious using this! The beautiful gold packaging always makes me feel a little bit fancy.

MAC 316 Lip Brush: this is the first lip brush I've ever owned. From now on, I think I'll be wearing my lipsticks more often, now that I can get them looking a lot nicer!

Travalo Refillable Perfume Atomiser Bottles: I'm too scared to travel with my full size bottles of perfumes, so I decided to buy a few of these. You take the spray cap off of your perfume (if you can), pump it up in your atomiser and you're good to go! These last fifty sprays and I've brought with me Givenchy's Ange ou démon as my day fragrance and Chloé as my night fragrance for Europe. There's an additional Travalo for another.

Max Factor False Lash Effect and Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express mascara: False Lash Effect is my holy grail mascara, which I've probably purchased a hundred times. It's been a favourite of mine since my poor uni days when all I could afford was make up from Priceline. I wanted to give The Falsies a go as I'd heard good things about it and this mascara definitely is impressive! It adds so much length to your lashes and like False Lash Effect, I think this works better after a few uses when it's not so wet.

NARS Sheer Glow foundation in Santa Fe: I bought this foundation as I wanted something light that still provided good coverage. I didn't want to be wearing something thick and heavy while spending the summer in Europe. I've used this a few times now and all I can is that it definitely lives up to the hype! Expect a review very soon!

Korres Lip Butter in Mango: I don't tend to wear a lot on my lips unless I'm going out at night, so I thought I'd buy this as not only have I heard great things about it, but I thought it would be a less boring alternative to plain lip balms. Not only does this product smell gorgeous and is super moisturising, but it's so easy to whack on without thinking about it wearing off. The hint of slightly glossy coral on the lips is lovely.

Sorry if this blog post was too big. I don't always get the time to blog as frequently as I'd like, but I hope you all enjoyed it, anyway. I'm sure I'll have another massive beauty haul to show you all once I'm back from Europe!
