Hi I know I havent updated for a while I have been pretty busy with work and moving house, and also because I have moved I didnt really have much money to go shopping =[ so I thought I will just wait and show you some nice stuff I have got instead. I will be doing another post soon on some samples I was sent a while back, I have used all of them now so I will just do a couple of posts on them.
Anyway I went a bit mad on getting my 'essentials' I ended up getting more than I really needed, but we all need to splurge sometimes!
First up I got some more Liz Earle Hot cloth cleanser, toner and moisturiser as mine ran out last month and honestly my skin has not been the same since using other products, I really think its the best! At the moment if you buy these together on the website you get free delivery and also the botanical shine shampoo and conditioner free too! Altogether this costs £41.00 Here is the link -
I also needed some more YSL touche eclat which I have been using every single day with my make up for the last year and again it has been hard not having it as I get really bad black circles sometimes and just general marks which this really does help. It does not work as a concealer which many people assume, it is a highlighter, but what it does, for me anyway, is it reflects light away from the darkened areas so instead of looking dark its shining light there and so I suppose works as a mirage.
Touche Eclat retails for around £25.00 depending on where you go, this was £22.50 from House of Fraser.
Next I needed some eye and foundation primer. I had a few sample sizes of the urban decay primer in different shadow boxes I have bought and these lasted a little while but now all gone so I thought I need to get the full size one. I have only tried stay dont stray by Benefit before (other than the UD one) and I really dont like it, have just been using it lately as I had no choice. Its so sticky and thick and you always get too much come out of the pump than you need. I am glad I now have the UD one, once more. I find that the consistency works best with shadow, its thin and smooth on the eye and brings the pigment out of the colour more. It also holds my eyeliner in place most of the day. This cost £13.05 from House of Fraser.
£44.10 from House of Fraser.
I also had a free gift with it which was a random pair of black frilly knickers - one size fits all. The bag was nice that they came in too! The knickers look like the ones on the bag just in black.
The first one I got was Creme Cup - I already have a few neutral shades and this was just the one that everyone goes on about so thought I would try it and see what the difference is between this and the others I have. And the second lipstick I got was Russian Red, I actually really love my Barry M red lipstick but I wanted a more blue toned red and this seems to be the perfect red to me.
Mac lipsticks were £14.00 each.
I might do a lipstick collection post soon as I dont really have a lot but I think I have a nice little core collection and not having loads means it wont take too long to talk about each one.
I have a few other bits and bobs coming so I will update when they arrive.
Thanks for reading =] xoxoxox
