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.
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!
