Look at me saving the best till last ;) When it comes to shopping the big loves are always in the cosmetic category. Makeup makes my heart beat faster, my senses start to tingle and you may even see me quicken my pace to hop foot it over to a counter. Obsessed? Me? Never! The first makeup hauling came in the form of repurchases. Thanks to spending my summer last year in the Bournemouth sun, I had a golden glow from May through to October. This resulted in some of my staples being a shade too dark, but I’ve finally corrected it! Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua B20 is now in my mitts, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla has been added and I even picked up the Benefit Gimmie Brow in Light/Medium. The Chanel Les Beiges Powder is a repurchase for the one I’ve finished up and I also got the NARS Concealer in Custard to match my current tanned shade. Now, onto the newbies!
Hello lovers. New makeup, aint it a beaut. A few of these items have been on my wish list for quite a white, the Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter, Anastasia Brow Whiz and Bite Argave Lip Mask have made their way into my collection and boy am I glad I took the plunge and snapped them up. To add to the stash I also got the Kat Von D Ink Liner and Lock-It Concealer, both are incredible but oh boy is the concealer good! Wanting something that didn’t have an applicator to help keep everything clear from bacteria this packs some serious coverage yet is super lightweight and moisturising on the skin – one of the best items I bought!
I also picked up the Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Size Palette, as it was too cute to resist, alongside the Hourglass Indestructible Matte in this adorable mini size. Last up is the Living Proof Style Lab Instant Texture Spray (also in a mini size) and the Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colour in 20 Peach Sorbet which I have been trying to get my hands on ever since the Surf and Sand Collection was released. Everything I bought got used whilst I was away and I haven’t been disappointed by a single thing!
The final item was this indulgent purchase. I didn’t know whether Sephora would have one in stock, over in the Forum they were out however when I headed over to the Venetian, there it sat just telling me to buy it. The NARS Yachiyo Brush #27 is officially the most expensive brush I have bought but man is it a beaut! It’s spun handle and tapered design can be used for blush, contour and highlight and gives a soft dusting to the cheeks that can be easily blended out. A complete overindulgence but worth event cent spent.
