I’ve said this already recently but I need to stop spending money on beauty. But then again there’s so much I want to buy! One shopping trip later and I have a nice selection of products, some I’d planned on buying and others that were more of an impulse buy. I’ve given them all a go over the last week so here are my first impressions and how I’m feeling about them so far.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara | I love this mascara, it’s really good. Back in the day I wasn’t a fan of a plastic brush but now it’s definitely what I’m drawn to when I want to pump up the volume. This one gives me length and volume and doesn’t flake off or end up down my face at the end of the day. If you’re in need of a new mascara and haven’t tried this one before I definitely recommend it.
Nip and Fab Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask | Gonna be real, this isn’t what I wanted. I should have taken a picture of the thing I wanted to buy to make sure I got the right one but I didn’t, so here we are. I wanted to get a full size of the serum that I got in my Glossybox Advent Calendar but forgot it was the serum I wanted and picked the bottle that looked the most like the smaller size. Mistake, but hey ho I’ll just need to pick up another bottle of the real stuff at some point. Anyway I’m not mad about it but after a couple of uses I really like this product. It’s very much like the serum but doesn’t sink in as quickly. It says you can use it as a ten minute mask or overnight and I think it’s going to be more of an overnight thing for me. Giving me an extra boost of hydration.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish in Fair | Look at this. It’s so stunning. After my Laura Mercier powder finished about 12 months ago I’ve never really found anything that’s stuck so I thought I’d give something a little bit high end a go. I can’t give it a proper review but so far so good, I’m really enjoying using it. It’s so soft and buttery and does a good job of setting my base. I’ll keep you posted on how I’m getting on.
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect | I have a couple of the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks and although I liked them back in the day, they’re a bit drying and I don’t get on with the formula anymore. So I thought I’d give one of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G ones a go because they’re a creamier formula. I was also in the market for a peachy nude so Bitch Perfect was the perfect option. I am IN LOVE with this. Like seriously. I’ve used it everyday since I got it and it works with pretty much everything. I think it’s going to be my new favourite.
Too Faced Natural Face Palette | I’ve been looking for a face palette for a couple of years but nothing has really jumped out at me. Usually the shades are a bit too dark for my pale skin. But this one from Too Faced is probably my perfect palette. The shades can work day to day, with the Sunny Bunny bronzer being a fab match, but then I think it will also be fab when I’m a bit more tanned on holiday. I’ve put it to the test over the week and I’m obsessed. The formula is fab, the highlights are gorgeous and they just work so well.
