It’s been a while since I shared my beauty purchases here on the blog and over the last couple of months I seem to have accumulated quite a few new things so I thought I’d do a haul post. Here’s what I got!
After hearing a lot about the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets I decided to give a tester a try, it lasted all day long without fading so I decided to go back and pick up 3 shades, Ole Flamingo, a warm toned fuscia, hot pepper, a bright, true red and Grand Cru a burgundy shade. They’re a matte liquid lipstick formula and I’m completely blown away by them. A full review is in the works!
I also got a blue and white stripy makeup bag which was only £8 from Boots, I love the stripes and the way they contrast with the bright coral zip, plus it’s the perfect size to throw into my handbag for on the go touch ups.
I’m not a huge powder wearer, I only ever have one on the go so when my MAC Studio Fix finished I wanted to get something to replace it. I found Studio Fix far too heavy for my liking so decided to get Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder as I heard it’s super lightweight and very finely milled.
I got a set of mini Estee Lauder fragrances as a gift a while ago and the one that I was instantly drawn to was Beyond Paradise, it’s just so different to any fragrances I’d smelt before. I really missed using it when it was finished so it wasn’t long before I picked myself up a full sized bottle.
I’ve always loved aromatherapy products and had trouble sleeping so I thought I’d finally give a couple of products from This Works a go. This duo contains a mini Deep Calm Pillow Spray and Breathe In rollerball.
I’d been coveting the Smashbox Full Exposer Palette for the longest time so I finally caved and decided to get it, I thought it was the perfect time of year for it as it contains lots of party friendly shimmery shades as well as a good range of mattes. I also got the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Shadow Paint in Chained, it’s a great, easy to use, wear everyday kind of shade. As you can see I’ve used it quite a bit already and I love it!
I was in need of a new mascara so I decided to give the Smashbox Full Exposer Mascara a go, purely because I liked the look of the brush and I was already at the counter getting the palette!
I also invested in a couple of new haircare tools, I finally got round to getting a Tangle Teezer and I’m so glad I did, I have no idea why it took me so long to jump onto that bandwagon! My old round blowdrying brush had seen better days, I’d used it for so long that most of the bristles had flattened down and when the handle broke off I knew it was time for a new one! I went for the Remington brush because it seemed to have the firmest bristles of all the brushes in boots.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my new purchases! I’ll be sure to do full reviews once I’ve been using them a bit longer. Have you bought any new beauty products recently?
