Haul flatlays

I haven’t been doing haul posts because I used to think “whats the point? “. I am all about adding value with my content so sometimes I overthink on what goes and what doesn’t go on here then I remind my self my goal – to simply connect with you guys. I think doing these kind of posts is not just about showing what one has bought but another way to connect and share useful information like what is nice what is not, where one can get it, prices e.t.c with each other.

Considering the way things are in the country I live seasonal hauls aren’t really a thing, most of the time we go for what works  long term because even with seasons the weather doesn’t change as much. This is my 2nd Haul post after one I shared a number of months ago and the almost similar current favorites posts.

Here are some of the products I have bought in the last 2 months:

 Good denim company jeans by Max

I got these about two weeks ago when a friend asked me to go with her to buy an outfit she saw at Max. We got there and I spotted grey pair of jeans that I have wanted for forever. I went try it on and it was the perfect fitting pair that I have always wanted. Since I was also crying about my other blue pair that is about 5 months old and already worn out ( the one I talked about on the living on a 10 item wardrobe post ). I decided to get a blue pair too for replacement. They were on sale and I got both for 50,000 tshs ( 22.9$ ) . If you live in Dar es salaam you might want to go check them out although I’m not sure the sale is still on.

Store: Max – GSM mall, Msasani.

Make up brushes

No brand, yes they don’t even have a name on them lol. I was introduced to an app called Kikuu by a friend  and I decided to try their services by purchasing something from them. I have heard people complain about the products they receive from Kikuu not being similar to the images displayed on the app but also two of my friends  told me that they received products that were ok. The brushes are okay and they get the job done and I got all of them for 21,600 tshs ( 9.8 $ ) .

Tip: When buying products online look for those with a returns policy or at least real reviews instead of those with no reviews at all. Read through what others are saying about the product before you go ahead and add it to your cart.

Maybelline new york dream mat mousse foundation

I have used it before and now since the foundation I normally use is not easily available in Dar I decided to get this one too . I love the light feel on my skin and the full coverage I achieve from it. I’d rate it 4.5/5 . I got it for Atsoko Slipway for 55,000 tshs (25.3 $ ) . If you have oily skin and not sure which foundation to use I’d suggest you have a look at this one.

Sleek True color lipstick in Succumb

I have looked for my shade of nude for forever and this is still not the perfect one but a very light application gives me the look I want. I use this one for my no make up make up looks.I got it at 22,ooo tshs (10.1 $ ) also at Atsoko.

Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ( Feel so grande )

Because red lipstick is a must have for me I had to get it again. I simply love the matte finish.

I wear different scents depending on my mood, and where I am heading to. These are the ones I got recently. I like to have both calm and sweet cents.

  • Bvlgari Omnia coral – Floral fruity scent. 
  • Bvlgari Mon Jasmin noir – the very lady like.
  • Givenchy Paris DAHLIA DIVIN Le Nectar de Parfum – Feminine calm scent.

    Yay to these. Givenchy smells great but I’ve not bought me a bottle in a while. Chanel is a staple scent I think. I’ve recently bought some liquid matte lippies and lipkits but darkskin woes and lack of variety for my tone have me second guessing my options. Love this 💚

      Thank you dear. The Givenchy one is kind of my favorite at the moment. I understand the struggle with finding the right shades of lippies thats why I have quite a few, just the basics.

    Yay to these posts. The layout is perf.
    Heard of ‘House of Jeans’? There’s one at Kariakoo, another one in Posta and another around Morocco. Been to the Morocco one recently and they sell jeans pants (in various colours) at the same rate you found on sale at Max. And shorts and denim shirts. Its a nice place. Have a look sometime maybe.

      Thank you dear. I have been to house of Jeans a while back, the one in kariakoo. I was just too excited with these ones because its so rare to find a perfect fitting pair especially if you are a lazy shopper like me. I like things visibly laid out with sizes and all it makes it so much easier.
