Unexpected Matas Haul

Do you ever go into a store with the intention of buying 1 thing, but then you come out with 5 other things as well? Well that happened to me yesterday.

Matas was having a sale on their sheet masks, which I did not know they even made, so I picked up 2, but they also had some NYX makeup on clearance and I picked up a few things as well. I also stopped by Normal to pick up one of the I Heart Makeup Chocolate Palettes. These are all the items I picked up from Matas and Normal:


Matas Cleansing Mask: This sheet mask contains pomegranate and macadamia that cleanses and softens the skin. The mask is worn for 20-30 minutes, and it can be used by all skin types. I have acne-prone skin, so a cleansing mask would be beneficial.

25 kr / $4


Matas Moisturizing Mask: This sheet mask contains avocado and shea butter that moisturizes and softens the skin. Like with the Cleansing Mask, this mask is worn for 20-30 minutes, and it can be used by all skin types. My face has some dry areas from the cold, so this mask should hopefully help out. Besides the Moisturizing and Cleansing masks, Matas has 2 other sheet masks available in Refreshing and Anti-Age.

25 kr / $4


NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Toasted Marshmallow: I love the NYX Butter Gloss, but I have not tried the intense gloss, and Matas had them for 50% off. Toasted Marshmallow is a mauve shade that has the same vanilla scent and texture as the original butter gloss, but this gloss is more pigmented. The gloss is also not sticky, and there are 24 shades available.

30 kr / $5


NYX Full Throttle Shadow Palette in Haywire: I have the NYX Full Throttle Palette in Take Over Control, which I like, and I wanted to try other shades. Luckily Matas also had the Full Throttle Shadow Palettes for 50% off and I picked up 2 palettes. Haywire has 4 shades with shimmer and matte finishes including a champagne, silver, dark blue, and black shade. The shades have good pigment, and hopefully they will do well on the eyes.

45 kr / $7


NYX Full Throttle Shadow Palette in Stunner: The other Full Throttle Palette I picked up was in Stunner. Stunner has 4 shades with shimmer and matte finishes including a lavender, cream, red-brown, and teal shade. The shades also have good pigment, and there are 8 Full Throttle Palettes available.

45 kr / $7


I Heart Makeup Pink Fizz Chocolate Palette: I have been wanting a I Heart Makeup Chocolate Palette since I gifted one to Lise. Normal had 5 palettes in Chocolate, Death By Chocolate, Naked Chocolate, Pink Fizz, and Golden Bar, and I decided on Pink Fizz. Pink Fizz includes 16 shades, 13 of which are shimmer and the other 3 are matte. The shades have good pigment, and they are perfect for any occasion to make the eyes pop. I only did a swatch of a few of the shimmer shades and one of the matte shades below, but so far I like the palette! Tam Beauty has 14 chocolate palettes available.

98 kr / $16

  1. The NYX teal shade looks so pretty! And the pink chocolate seems to have many shades in common with my death by chocolate, the purple shade looks almost identical πŸ˜€ The gloss looks good too! Really impressed with that one.

    1. The teal shade is gorgeous 😍
      They probably do have some shades in common, but overall the shades look lighter in the pink one!
      I’m impressed too & I didn’t know they could make a gloss w/ a ton of pigment πŸ˜„


  2. I have heard such great things about the NYX shadows! Also I totally know what you mean – always go in to buy one thing and either come out with 10 other things or something completely different to what I needed to get in the first place xx
