I’m forever hearing people rave about Cult Beauty. It’s an amazing beauty focused online shop where you can pick up brands you can’t find easily, if anywhere, in stores. They stock brands from Huda Beauty to Anastasia Beverly Hills and Too Faced to Charlotte Tilbury. To add flame to the fire, they also do free shipping in the UK if you spend over £15 and you can get two luxury samples if you spend over £50. As the item I was after was already £28 – I knew that it was going to lead to a slight haul to enable me to get those free samples, so here’s what I got.
Pixi Palette Chloette (£28, Cult Beauty)
This is the item that’s the whole reason for this haul. Anything that has Chloe Morello’s name on it, you can guarantee that I’ll want it. I’m obssessed with her two eyeshadow palettes with Ciate London and I knew after seeing her wearing the blushes from this palette that I needed it in my life.
Pixi are known for their amazing powder formulas and once I saw that she’d created an all over face palette containing three blushes for every occasion, three matte eye contour and liner shades, along with six shimmer eyeshadows that can also be used as highlight.
As you can see from the images, the shades are really suitable for all skin tones and any occasion. There’s a peach, pink and darker mauve rose toned blush along with every colour of shimmery highlight you could ever need. Chloe also says that the matte shades are not only great for using as eyeshadow or liner, but they’re cool enough to use for the brows.
I know that I’ll get a lot of use out of this palette and it’ll be perfect for travelling with!
The Ordinary Serum Foundation in 1.2Y (£5.70, Cult Beauty)
Ever since I bought this foundation a couple of months ago, I’ve been obsessed. This shade is perfect for me when I’ve got no tan on and I find the finish super natural whilst still providing a good coverage.
Unlike some other foundations I have, this shade doesn’t oxidise and it dries down to a satin finish. I’ve found it lasts a hell of a lot better than my other foundations and it’s absolutely perfect for everyday wear.
I’d recommend this foundation to anyone who’s struggling to find a high coverage, natural looking, long lasting base. I’ve used a few different moisturisers, concealers, powders and primers with this and haven’t found it to react any differently with any of them. It also comes in a great range of shades with one bottle costing less than £6. You’d be stupid not to give it a go!
Zoeva Silk Finish Brush 102 (£12.99, Cult Beauty)
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just get bored of using my beauty sponge day in, day out to apply my foundation. Now, I’m not saying that it doesn’t work amazingly – because it does – I’m just saying that just like if you used the same mascara all the time, you start to become curious about everything else that’s on the market.
I liked the look of this brush as it’s densely packed, making it perfect for buffing and blending products into the skin. It’s also not too big, meaning you can get under the eyes, around your nose and in every nook and cranny easily.
Upon feeling the brush, I can confirm it’s super soft and I can imagine it’ll give the face a perfectly flawless finish!
NYX Vivid Brights Liner in Blossom (£5.50, Cult Beauty)
I already have the White and Violet shades in this liner and I absolutely love them. They’re great for adding a graphic touch to your eye look, or in relation to the Violet one it’s a great way to add a pop of colour.
I thought this Blossom shade was perfect for the upcoming spring season and this with plenty of lashes and girly pink cheeks and lips will look amazing. I’ll definitely be using it in a tutorial soon.
NYX Worth The Hype Mascara (£9, Cult Beauty)
My current mascara is getting to the stage where any day now it’s going to be completely dry and I’m not going to get the effect I want with my lashes. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this mascara and when my friend Chazz said that she couldn’t wait to try it, I knew it was one worth getting.
It’s described as both lengthening and volumizing. The brush has big bristles, as well as being tapered, meaning it’ll coat every lash with the product. It’s said to even cling to every baby lash that you have, making it perfect for your lower and upper lashes.
I can’t wait to try this out, as I personally love the Doll Eye mascara that NYX do. They’re an affordable, quality product brand that’s always worth looking at!

Buxom PlumpLine Lip Liner in Incognito (Full size – £15, Cult Beauty)
This lip liner is great luxury sample size that’s perfect for popping in your handbag or even taking on your travels. The colour is a perfect ‘your lips but better’ colour that will go with any nude lipstick be it pink, brown, nude or peachy toned.
On the other end of the pencil is a lip brush, allowing you to blend any harsh lines that the product creates. It’s creamy to the touch and could ever be worn alone.
Omorovicza Ultramoor Mud Mask (Full size – £68, Cult Beauty)
This mud mask has multiple skin benefits such as anti-ageing, lifting and defining facial contours along with providing the skin with healing properties. Basically, it sounds right up my street.
Within this sample is enough for one mask and it’s a great way to find if your skin agrees with a product before committing to a whole tub.
I’m so happy with my Cult Beauty shop. The whole experience from the website to delivery was easy and I’m definitely going to be shopping on there a lot more – especially as they have a lot of brands you can’t yet find on Beauty Bay or ASOS.
If you have any recommendations for great products from Cult Beauty, please let me know. I’d love to find some amazing new items!
