My Weekend Beauty Haul: Becca, Origins and Sephora / by Erin Baynham

August Beauty Haul 1. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores ($24)- I ended up buying a full bottle of this after my small sample made me love life again. We happened to be walking past the store, and I did a beeline to the store. Once I team this up with my exfoliators for a weekly skincare treatment, there will be no stopping me!

2. Becca Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation ($38)- I've tried this foundation at the store 5 times. It's practicatlly second skin. But since my bottles of Make Up For Ever foundation are likely infested with parasites due to their old age, I figured I'd pick up some new stuff. The shade I wear is Mink.

3. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38) - I'm iffy about this one. I swatched it and walked around the store with it, and the gold microshimmer was absolutely eye catching. But I need to be honest with myself. When is the last time I wore a shimmery gold highlighter? And furthermore, when is the next time I'll wear one? It's look nice on my hand I guess. (Stay tuned--I'll be sharing swatches during #Swatchtember on the ScandalousBeauty Instagram page)

4. Sephora Purifying Brush Shampoo ($14) - I need a quick fix sometimes, and this does the trick. If it were up to me, I'd use Parian Spirit all the time, but the smell is just too intense.
