Haul from Berlin (part 2) - Revlon, The Body Shop

It's time for part 2 of this haul of mine from Berlin... and I think I'll try to post another one this evening. I really need to get this haul out of the way, so that I can start reviewing the products for you!

This part of the haul features products by Revlon and The Body Shop. I was especially excited about Revlon, since we don't have it here in Iceland! 

As usual, L-R, and we will begin with Revlon.
  • The lipgloss is Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Coral Reef, which is a beautiful coral colour. Very bright.
  • The lipstick is Revlon's ColorBurst Lipstick in Crimson. Again, Crimson seems to be an exceptionally pretty shade. I usually don't go this dark with my lips, so I can't wait to try this deep, rusty red colour.
  • Finally is Revlon's Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackened Brown. This mascara is supposed to make your lashes stronger while you wear it. I don't know about that (haven't used it long enough to tell), but I can tell you that I love it, and I also love the colour. I usually go for the blackest black I can find and I haven't found brown mascaras very flattering on me in the past. However, this colour almost looks black - yet it isn't. So it gives you a softer, more natural look, but still I go "wow" every time I use it... ok, I'll stop rambling about it! Review coming up, obviously!

Now on to products by The Body Shop!
  • The squeezy tube thingy there (I love to hate and hate to love the word "thingy"... but I do love it...) is from The Body Shop's Spring Collection, and it is the Tailored Cheek Tint in Hot Pink. This is a gel blush which comes out clear, but turns a beautiful pink once you apply it to your skin. Review coming up, I love this!
  • The Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector is a staple for me (as you can read in my Winter Skincare post... though I use it all year round). I had run out of this and I can't tell you how happy my hands were to see their best friend again :)
  • The last item is The Body Shop's Tea Tree Blotting Tissues. Those are blotting sheets with tea tree oil in them, so they're supposed to help with acne/blemishes. I have become addicted to blotting sheets, so I really look forward to giving those a try.
That's it for this part, stay tuned for part 3, which will include Manhattan, Artdeco and Maybelline ;)

P.S. As always, if you would like to see reviews on any of those, please let me know.


  1. I'm loving coral reef, from your picture and the name! do you go to berlin often? And can you speak german? just curious =)

  2. @Dovey - I don't go very often, no :) I believe I've been there three times, and I love the city... well, I love Germany. And yes, I speak German ;) It's a beautiful language!

  3. This is great! Can't wait for the next one :)
    By the way are there any german cosmetic brand that you recommend?

    Thanks :)

  4. @Cynthia T - Thanks! The next one will be coming up soon :) Yes, I love many drugstore brands from Germany. For example Artdeco (which has really great eyeshadows which you can build you own palette from, they're great quality!), Manhattan (love their e/s primer and lipsticks, as well as e/s!) and Rival de Loup. Check those out!

  5. Oh, thank you so much - I appreciate it!Artdeco was already on my list, but I wasn't quite sure about the quality - now i am more confident on buying!
    Haven't heard about manhattan and rival de loup, but I'll make sure to check them out too!

    I will also make sure to check lots of the Dior product you mention. We have them here in Brazil, but they cost at least 60% more here :(

    Thanks again! Have a great weekend :)

  6. @Cynthia T - Def check out Artdeco, love it. And Dior is of course a favourite of mine, needless to say :) Next part of this haul will be coming tomorrow!
