Stila Tinted Moisturiser – I finally managed to track this down in the lightest shade in my local Poundland so I bought two. I’m looking forward to trying them!
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream – I reviewed this here and I loved it so much that I finally bought the full size.
St Ives Apricot Scrub – I decided to buy a mini version of this scrub to take away with me as I’d never tried it before. I’ve used it a couple of times now and I’m very impressed, so I’ll definitely be buying the full size when this mini runs out.
Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud face mask – I love these face masks and thought I’d give this one a go as I’m suffering from a lot of blemishes at the moment.
Eyelure Dylash – I bought this in dark brown to dye my eyebrows, however it wasn’t dark enough so I think I’m going to have to get it in black.
Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick – I picked this up after seeing all the hype about them on blogs and YouTube. Full review coming soon!
Botanics Cleansing Face Wipes – I needed some new wipes to take away with me and the Botanics range is currently 1/3 off and I’d heard a lot of good things about them.
So that’s just a few things I’ve picked up recently! If you want to see any full reviews, let me know. I’ve been really busy over the past couple of weeks, hence me being MIA but I have a lot of posts to get up this week. Plus, I’m nearly at 450 followers so I’ll soon be doing an exciting giveaway!
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC15 – available here
This is one of the products I picked up while I was in Harrods last month. I was having a bit of a TREAT YO SELF day in celebration of my degree. I was originally going to get a Benefit concealer but this caught my eye and after a quick google for reviews, I decided to get it.
At £14.50 for 7g of product, this concealer is really good value compared to other high end alternatives. The creamy consistency blends really well and provides a long lasting, full coverage without looking cakey. I use this under my eyes to hide my dark circles, on any old blemish marks and also on any current blemishes that I may have. Once set with a powder, I find that this stays put for at least 8 hours. The SPF 35 is an extra added bonus that I’m pleased about. I’ve been using it everyday for the month or so that I’ve had it and I’ve hardly made a dent in the pan. This is definitely something that I will be repurchasing when I do eventually run out.
Have you tried this concealer? If not, what’s your favourite?
NARS Orgasm – Selfridges, £21
A couple of weeks ago, whilst in Selfridges, I decided to pick up something I’d wanted for ages – NARS Orgasm. At £21, it’s the most expensive blush I own but I believe it’s definitely worth the price tag. Orgasm is a light pink blush with a peachy golden shimmer running through it. When applied, it blends easily and adds a lovely glow to your complexion without being glittery. The colour is highly pigmented and really buildable, I think that it is one of those products that would suit any skin tone.
I love the black packaging, it’s so sleek and sophisticated but as it’s made out of a rubbery material, it attracts a lot of dust. It’s easy to clean them with a baby wipe though. I’ve heard a lot of horror stories about NARS blushes shattering in the pan so I haven’t taken mine out in my make up bag with me yet as I’m so scared to break it.
What do you think of Orgasm? Does it live up to the hype?
