With pay day just gone, I decided to pick up a few beauty bits that I’ve been wanting over the past few weeks. So I’ve decided to share with you what I’ve bought and maybe you may feel empowered (or tempted) to “treat yo’ self” too!
Charlotte Tilbury – The Feline Flick £22
Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite high end makeup brands. I think the quality of their products are absolutely amazing, I’m yet to be disappointed with something I’ve purchased from the collection. After hearing outstanding reviews, I decided to pick up their felt tip liner ‘The Feline Flick’. I’ve not yet tried any of these products, however from the swatches that I made when it arrived, I can tell that this liner is going to be highly rated. The nib is really fine, yet sturdy, so creating the perfect cat flick shouldn’t be too much of an issue – Or so I hope.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick – Love Liberty £23
The Charlotte Tilbury ‘Matte Revolution’ collection is undoubtedly one of my favourite lipstick collections that I’ve tried. I am basically in love with matte lipsticks, however in the past I’ve tried matte lipsticks and they’ve just dried my lips out and made me feel paranoid. I’ve never had this issue with any of the lipsticks from this collection. I purchased the shade ‘Love Liberty’ which is a medium toned purple/red, very autumnal indeed. If you’re looking for the perfect matte lipstick, I can’t help but recommend that you head over to the Charlotte Tilbury website and find yourself a shade.
Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil Shampoo – Sulphate Free £24
Never in my life have I spent so much money on a shampoo before. However recently I’ve been having problems with shampoos that contain sulphate. I’m not the type of girl to overly look after my hair, if I’m honest. My hair has always been in good condition as I’ve never coloured it, and It’s very rare that I straighten it or use a large amount of heat on it. I’ve tried Bumble and Bumble products before, from their Surf collection and I absolutely loved them. So I thought I’d treat my hair for a change and purchased a decent shampoo, that won’t leave my scalp feeling sore and irritated (Ew..)
Real Techniques Bold Metals – Contour Brush £22
I’ve wanted this brush ever since the Bold Metals collection was released. I’ve never owned a brush that is so utterly dreamy, how can you not completely lust over rose gold? The shape of this brush is what I’m drawn to most, it’s quite dense and sturdy, so I’m guessing that achieving the perfect contoured cheek bones won’t be too hard with this brush. I’m very excited to try this, hopefully it’s worth the money, and the amount of time it took me to get a decent photo of it as it didn’t look good against a white table.
Make Up For ever – Full Cover concealer £21
If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, then you’ll know that I’ve really been loving Make Up For Ever recently. With my sisters wedding only a few days away, I wanted to buy a concealer that I know would hide any of the blemishes I had, and just in case the make up artist didn’t have any full coverage concealers for my skin tone. The majority of the concealers that I have are either light or medium coverage, as I’m not that into the air brushed Barbie doll look, I prefer my skin to look like skin. However considering I’m a bridesmaid I want to look as blemish free as possible, hopefully Make Up For Ever can make this happen!
See you next Tuesday!
