February Buys

Hello my lovelies,

The month of February was where I was a little more refrained compared to January. I knew I had gone overboard and I thought I needed to be a bit more restricted. If any one knows me I am addicted to shopping so when I tell myself be restricted I buy less but still spend the same amount.

I did get some products that I am over the moon about – I don’t know how I have not used them yet but I have been restrained because ya know – I have to take blog photos. Yep I’m dedicated!

House of Fraser 

So this was one of the first places I went, and actually Benefit kindly gave me a complimentary make over. I was never going to pass up the opportunity and I asked my gorgeous best friend Nadia to come with me. Benefit have launched new lipsticks and eye shadows so I was extremely excited to get my hands on them. I ended up purchasing:

Benefit Kiss Missy Gift Set see here

I brought this because I really wanted their new lip kit in Revved up Red but they didn’t have any in stock as a single product so the lady suggested I get this set. It comes with two of the new lip kits in Revved Up Red and Pink Thrills along with a Benetinit and Lollitint. The two tints I gave to my friend Nadia as a thank you for coming with me – everyone is a winner!

Benefit They’re Real Duo Shadow Blender in Kinky Khaki see here

This is something the lovely lady in Benefit put on my eyes during my makeover. I fell in love with the colours – it isn’t something I would usually go for but I am all for going out of my comfort zone and trying something new.

Yep – I don’t think I can do a haul without mentioning Boots. I just love it OK – I could spend hours walking up and down the aisles and I’m sure I am not alone in this.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 700ml see here

So Garnier, the legends that they are have brought out the micellar water in a 700ml bottle. I was sold! I go through countless bottles of this and now to have it in a even bigger bottle I am hoping I won’t have to buy this every month. I mention this so often – best micellar water EVER!

Soap & Glory Supercat Carbon Black Extreme Eyeliner Pen see here

This is a repurchase – this is my go to eyeliner. I won’t use anything else. I have had my current one for god knows how long and I thought that it would be best to buy a new one. It hasn’t dried up and it is still pure black but I worry about using a product for too long so I now will probably throw my old one anyway and whip out this brand new one.

NYX – Lip Lingerie Lipstick in Teddy see here

I love liquid lipsticks – NYX have some amazing colours especially in the soft matte lip range. I saw these and they caught my eye – loads of different brown tone liquid lipsticks & I’m there! I think these are a new line by NYX and I am super excited to try this. It is a deep brown colour with a slight red undertone. Let’s hope it is as good as the other NYX lipsticks.

L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Wash see here

I love the L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox Face mask – I posted a review here and it is seriously good. So when I saw that they have brought out a face wash from the same range I was sold. I am so excited to use this and I really hope it works in the same way as the face mask. I am sure I will post of a review on what I think about this so keep your eyes peeled!

Soap and Glory: The Ultimelt Deep Purifying Hot Cloth Cleanser see here

I recently brought the Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk see here which I absolutely adore! I thought I would try something else from their skincare range and I decided on their hot cloth cleaner. I really hope that I enjoy it as much as the cleansing milk.

Garnier: Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash see here

As I love the micellar water so much as you can tell! I saw that they had added to the line a gel wash. Now I don’t have any gel skincare products and because I love and trust this range a lot I thought the best way to try them out is to stick with what you know. I have seen a lot of good reviews about this so I am hoping that I fall in love with it.

 Cult Beauty

So I have never made an order with Cult Beauty until now. I am always worried that I won’t like what I buy because I can’t actually test before I buy but on a whim I thought why not lets give it a go – and boy was I impressed! I spent way more than I thought I would but I am so happy with what I brought and I am so excited to try them! Even better – I chose standard delivery which I placed the order on a Friday and the following Monday morning it was on my doorstep. This is seriously impressive and I will defo be ordering again with them.

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette see here

I mentioned in my February Wishlist that I wanted the Rose Golden palette but after looking at them all for a good 30 minutes I decided this was the one I wanted more. I am sure in the future I will pick others up because I LOVE the formula of these eye shadows. I already have the Naturally Yours palette and I am obsessed. I love the colours in this one as they are going out of my comfort zone of sticking nude shades. As much I love the nudes they are boring!

Charlotte Tilbury – Full Fat Lashes see here

I love Charlotte Tilbury – I don’t think I have met anyone that doesn’t swoon over their products. I have a few of the eye shadow palettes so I thought I would branch out a little. A Mascara – yep not very exciting but is something I have wanted to try for forever. I brought this on a bit of a whim as I can get this at other places but it accidentally fell into my basket – whoops!

Huda Beauty – Liquid Matte in Vixen see here

I have heard a lot about these recently and I love a liquid lipstick. It was a no brainer for me – it was hard choosing a colour though, they all look so good. The colour I went for in the end is a beautiful deep red/brown shade. Not so sensible for the spring time around the corner but who cares – I like the colour and I don’t need to justify it to anyone.

Anastatisia Beverley Hills – Modern Renasissance Eye Shadow Palette see here

Last but by no means least my favourite purchase of the year so far! This was the reason I made the cult beauty order. I knew I just needed to buy it, I have never brought anything from the brand and rather than thinking about it for months I thought stuff it I’m buying it. It’s just beautiful – anyone that is thinking about buying it just buy it. You will not regret this one. This has brought love into my heart words cannot explain. What a beautiful product

With my Cult Beauty order as I spent over a certain amount of money I got to choose two samples the ones I chose were: Oskia Super 16, Advanced Nutri-Active Collagen Serum and Caudali Night Infusion Cream.

I seriously have a shopping addiction – I know. If you don’t treat yourself who will? Money is their to be spent. I work hard and shop harder. Let me know if you have tried anything I have mentioned as I would love to know your thoughts!

  1. Such a great beauty haul with so many lovely products! The Garnier Micellar water is the best one by a mile! I have the Nivea one at the moment but I’m going back to Garnier when it’s finished for definite. The L’Oreal clay detox wash sounds great as well and like something my skin really needs at the moment! xxx
