Mini Boots Haul 💕💕💕

  

  


Still on the hunt for the Kate Moss Nude collection lipsticks! But on the way picked up a few bits from boots today. 

I did manage to actually get another 2 of the shades that I needed. I got shades 45 and 48. Also picked up one from her other range in shade 03. 

Will swatch these within the next few days! I think I only have one shade left to find now! 


 

I’ve been wanting to try a BB balm or cream for a while now, and whilst I was looking at the seventeen collection for yet another different contour kit to try I came across this balm.  

My skin is terrible at the minute, so the fact that it said it will improve my skin within 4 weeks made me want to try it! 

My friend uses the contour kit, and looks fabulous so I wanted to give that a go myself and see what it’s like. 


 

I haven’t wore powder for a very long time. I’ve been using Soap and Glorys Solar powder as an all over face powder for a while as its light enough to give the effect I wanted. 

However I’m one for trying new things all the time. So I grabbed this one as I’ve seen a fair few blogs recommending it. 

  

Yay!! I’m so excited that I eventually found this product. I loved their Morrocon oil shampoo and conditioner and their coconut milk. But I seen Zoella blog about this a while ago and I’ve only just managed to pick it up in boots today! 

These are going in my toiletries section of my Xmas list though. So you will have to wait a while for my review 😂😂

 


You will see in the top picture that I grabbed some insence, that was from a little stall as I ran out of nag champa at the weekend, and this was all they had. But they smell beautiful. And for £1 per pack you can’t really go wrong! 

So, still on the hunt for the last shade of the nude collection. Looks like it might have to be an online purchase. But I’m super happy that I managed to get the rest today. 

Thanks so much for reading. If you have tried any of these products, let me know what you think of them in the comments!

My weekly purchases 💕💕

  


Safe to say that I’m well and truly spent up this month! Have went a little crazy this week. So that’s me done now till next month. 

I thought I would do a little post to show you what I got! 


Primark and Lush 

Recently watched a Zoella video where she had purchased some of the 3 wick candles in a tin from Primark and she said they smelt amazing! So I went to have a peek and got a couple. 

Little bit gutted they didn’t do the Peony and white tea in a bigger size as that smells gorgeous but still happy with pineapple and ginger, and also the red berry and jasmine. 

The large 3 wicks were £3.50 each and the square one was £2. 

Also picked up this cute little t shirt. I say little, this is a size 6 because they all seemed enormous and I wanted one to tuck into my high waisted black jeans. I’m usually a 12 in a top! It was £3 in the sale. 

And of course I couldn’t walk past Lush without popping in. But I was trying to contain myself as they have already had quite a lot of money from me this month! 

I got the marshmallow bath melt and the Big Blue. Both smell divine! 

   
 


Very

Couple of makeup purchases from very that arrived this week. I’m still waiting on the NYX colour correction kit but that doesn’t seem to have arrived yet!

Kate Moss Rimmel  lasting finish in shade 101

This is a super light pink, it smells gorgeous and it’s a really pretty colour. 

  


Barry M – Make me blush

I wanted to try some cream blushes as I’ve asked for some cream blush palettes for Xmas from Makeup revolution. So to tide me over till then I bought this and so far it’s great! Really pretty bright pink but once blended leaves a lovely glow. 

 



Maybelline Baby Skin – Instant fatigue blur 

I’ve been using the green tube (pour eraser) which I’ve absolutely loved but just finished it recently. So I wanted to try this one out. It’s a total different texture so I’m finding it to be a bit strange. But I’m willing to persevere with it! 

   


Maybelline Great Lash 

Haven’t used this yet, but I’ve heard mixed reviews. So thought I would check it out myself because I’m a huge fan of Maybelline products. 


Loreal Perfect match concealer 

I’ve been using this as a highlighter for under my eyes and it’s absolutely perfect. Great coverage and really helps brighten my face. Super easy to apply too. 
    


MAC – Disney limited edition Malificent sculpting powder 

I have to admit I bought this just because I love Malificent 😑 however it was a total steal at £5.50 as I won it on eBay! Yay! And furthermore I really love it. I’ve been using it as my contour powder and it’s great for my jaw line/cheekbones. 

 


Estée Lauder – double wear – fresco 

I’ve been putting this off for a while even though I really really wanted it. I’ve just never spent this much on a foundation before. As I’ve said in previous posts, I’m a huge lover of drugstore brands and I’ve really never spent more that £12 on a foundation. 

But this was totally worth it. The coverage alone has convinced me that this purchase was the best idea I’ve had in a long time. 

But it goes on lovely, doesn’t feel heavy or feel like I’m wearing 10 layers of makeup. I really have fallen in love with it. 
 

 


So as you will see, I won’t be buying anything else for a while (I hope) as this lot and my superdrug haul was more than I’d wanted to spend this month! 

But there are some great products here! Let me know if you have tried any of them and what you thought 💕💕💕 

Thanks for reading.

Selfie Saturday : My makeup 

  

Morning lovelies! 

I thought I would give you a quick run through of what makeup I’m wearing today. After purchasing a few bits this week, I’ve been gradually adding them and changing things amongst my normal routine. 

I also dyed my hair this week! I’m a little bit sad, it didn’t take long to get blonde but it has damaged my hair quite badly. I only wanted to go blonde so that I could go a gun mental grey. Who knew going grey was such hard work? Even the hairdressers tried but the toner was washing out within a week. Too much money and still didn’t get the outcome that I wanted. So I’ve gone a nice brown instead! This is what I used : 

  


So, my makeup today consists of the following:  


Maybelline Baby skin – Instant fatigue Blur

I’m not sure if I like this yet, I’ve been using the green tube (instant pour eraser) for a few months now and it’s a totally different texture. However my makeup does go on well over it, so I’m going to persevere. I apply this to my full face as a primer.  


 

Estée Lauder – Double wear – Fresco 

I bit the bullet and purchased it this week. So many people have said such great things about the coverage that I just couldn’t contain myself any longer. I’m a big advocate in drugstore makeup. I’ve been using Maybelline better skin for a while now and I love that. But the coverage I’ve got from double wear is really quite amazing. The price makes my eyes water though. But from what I’ve used so far, I’m happy to pay it!   


  

Maxfactor – Pan stik – Noveau Beige 

I use this as a concealer not foundation. So I apply it anywhere I need it. Usually under my eyes and then blemishes. 


 


Makeup Revolution contour pallets – light, medium/dark

I absolutely love these. They are only £6 per pallet in superdrug. I use the 2 lightest shades for highlighting (see previous review post to see how I highlight and contour my face) and then the 3 darkest shades for contour. 

  



Soap and Glory – Solar Powder 

I’m touching pan with this now so need to replace it. I don’t use it as a bronzer really, more like my all over face powder before I apply any contour powder! 

  

MAC – Limited edition Disney’s Malificent – Sculpting Powder 

Can’t even explain how excited I am to own this product. They are selling for quite a lot on Ebay with them being no longer available. However, I won this in a bidding for £5.50 😱 that was the starting bid so no one else must have searched for it! 

It came in the post yesterday, I’ve been using it to sculpt my cheekbones and basically anywhere where I contour. LOVE it. 



Barry M – Make me blush cream

Also bought this week (keep an eye out for my weekly purchases blog later) 

I’ve asked Sean for the Makeup revolution cream blush pallets for Xmas. So in the meantime wanted to try a few others. I love this one, goes on super easy and it’s a really pretty pink colour. Blends easy with my brushes too.   

 


Collection work the colour – eyebrow kit 

I use the black mostly, but this is still by far the best eyebrow kit I’ve used. And it’s a steal at 2.99! 

  


Maybelline – The Rocket Mascara 

Still my absolute favourite although I have bought a different one to try this week. But I’m pretty sure this will be my staple mascara forever!

  


Pop Beauty – Sooty black eyeliner

No point in taking a photo as its nearly finished which shows how much I’ve loved this product. It was in my first glossy box. And I absolutely adore it. 


Kate Moss Rimmel – Nude collection shade 40

Everything I could ever want from a nude lipstick!
