First Cult Beauty purchases - Anastasia Dipbrow and Alpha H Liquid Gold | Haul

So recently I placed a sneaky order with Cult Beauty to get some bits I've had my eye on after reading various blog reviews/watching various youtube gurus. I've justified this as a Christmas present to myself as I can't go home for Christmas this year, it's my first Christmas without my family and in a country where they don't really celebrate it (Google KFC Christmas Chicken Japan to get an idea...).
Also Cult Beauty had some sort of Black Friday sale on, which while Alpha H didn't apply to the discount I still got a discount when I checked out so I wasn't going to say no!


The shipping was seriously good considering I believe Cult Beauty is UK based, and the fact Christmas is looming - it got to Japan in under a week I think! However while none of the products were damaged I was a bit like wtf with the packaging though, the products weren't packed in with tissue paper or bubble wrap so could rattle around (considering the journey they had to make to get to me I would've expected the items to be secured inside the box). Also the products were just wrapped in tissue paper, I don't know why but this seems a little unprofessional to me? Maybe I'm just being picky.



So here's what I picked up! Definite cult favourites: Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde, Anastasia large synthetic brow duo brush, and Alpha H Liquid Gold

Brush - £12.50 // Dipbrow Pomade - £12.50

Liquid Gold by Alpha H - £27.92 // Jouer samples - free with purchase

For those who don't know what Liquid Gold is, it's essentially a Glycolic Acid exfoliator - it's supposed to be an absolute miracle product which improves everything from skin texture to acne. You use this 2-3 times a week after cleansing at night-time and don't follow with moisturiser. Of course I'll be blog reviewing this but I'm going to use it for a month and then see what I think.

Anastasia Dipbrow is raved about everywhere, a definite cult product! Loads of my favourite youtube beauty gurus use this so I really wanted to try it, review up very soon!

Have you guys ever placed an order with Cult Beauty before? xx

Uh yeah that packaging is really weird. They couldn't even use matte tape? Anyhow, excited to see how the liquid gold turns out! I've been wanting to get a product like that.


Georgie said...

Thank you! xx

Georgie said...

I hadn't either til I looked at Cult Beauty's bestsellers, it seems like a good 'un though! xx

Georgie said...

I shall! :) xx

Georgie said...

Hahah sounds like a plan! I will happily trade for some turkey :p xx

Georgie said...

Okay good it's not just me then! I hope the liquid gold is good, I've kind of got my hopes up about it! xx
