Recent Buys

Wednesday, 9 January 2013

Hello everyone, sorry for my recent absence from my blog I've been busy with redecorating my bedroom, sixth form and my seizures have been becoming daily so finding time to sit down and write a post had been hard. But today I will get a few done.

First off I wanted to show you a few things I've brought recently. I must admit I've been bad with spending, I just wanted to try out lots of new things. My excuse is "I'm a blogger, I have to try these products out" haha. Here's just some of what I've brought...

  Real Techniques Powder Brush- I got this to apply my setting powders as I needed a new one. I love Real Technique brushes and I can't wait to get more. This brush is so soft.

Sleek Blush in Pixie Pink- This is such a lovely shade, I haven't swatched it as I will do a more detailed review in another post.

Essie Where's My Chauffeur?- This is such a lovely blue almost turquoise colour which stood out to me on the shelf, I had to own it. I'm going to paint my nails with it after I've done this post so expect a NOTD tomorrow.

MAC Hue Lipstick- Guys this is major, I brought my second ever MAC lipstick. I am so so happy and I love it. The colour is so nice, a post up soon!

Bourjois Bronzing Powder- I admit I don't use a bronzer on a daily basis, but after reading reviews on this I thought I would go out a give it a try.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 10- I ran out of my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and my local Boots store didn't have my shade so I thought I would give this one a try.

Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder in 125- I didn't need this but there was an offer for buy one get one half price on Maybelline in Boots so I got this to set the concealer. So far they are working really well together, as with all the new products a review will be up once I've given it more of a try.

Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat- I'm sure you've all read about this top coat, I got it on offer with a base coat on BuyaPowa a few weeks ago. As it was only around £9 ish for the pair I thought it's worth it for a try. I'm giving it tests to see what it's like against Sally Hansen Inst-Dri so I can compare the two for you.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder- I suffer from oily skin and I hate it, I still haven't found the perfect powder so I'm going to give this one a try. So far I'm liking it but I've only used it once.

Sleek i-Divine Ultra Mattes V1 Brights Palette- I'm crazy about bright eye shadow, I love it. This palette contains some really nice bright colours that I can have a good experiment with. 

So that's all the beauty products I've brought lately,

 I also got a new phone case from Etsy...

I love the skull and the colours, I got it personalised with my nickname on, SCR. My boyfriends dad came up with it as it's my initials so it's what they all call me haha. It feels really good quality and protects my phone, what more is there to say.

Thanks for reading!
