A Mini Charlotte Tilbury Haul


Charlotte Tilbury Haul makeup Beauty Hot Lips Secret Selma Swatch Eyeshadow Lipstick Bette Whenever I am feeling a little splurge I always go for Charlotte Tilbury. It is no surprise I am a huge fan of the brand as I have mentioned quite a few products on the blog. I am always lusting over something from the brand and when they released a new range of lipsticks, I just had to pick one up. Of course I couldn’t just buy one thing so I did a little double splurge, what’s new!?

Talking of the new lipstick range, Charlotte has released a new line of lipsticks entitled ‘Hot Lips’ with each lipstick named after a famous female personality. £1 of every lipstick sale also goes to an international charity supporting women which obviously makes the purchase even sweeter! I do think however more than a £1 could’ve been donated but at least it’s something, right! I picked up the shade Secret Salma which is a gorgeous deep rosy plum colour. The shade comes in Charlotte’s incredible Matte Revolution formula which is super creamy and comfortable whilst being matte.

Of course, my CT wishlist is always growing so I was excited to see that she had a special 30% off some items on her website. I had been desperate to try out her cream Eyes to Mesmerise eye shadows so I had to pick one up since it was on offer. I picked the shade Bette, which is a gorgeous Amber gold shade. The formula is super creamy and incredibly long lasting on the lids. It makes a very easy and quick eyeshadow look perfect for makeup on the go.

A Space NK Haul


Space-nk-haul-beauty-makeup-beauty-blender-sponge-becca-ombre-rouge-eye-palette-eyeshadow-kevin-aucoin-sculpting-powder-lightThis month has had me haulin’ to the extreme. I already showed you some bits I got from Cult Beauty in a separate haul post you can check here but I also made a little trip to Space NK to pick up some more beauty pieces (as if I need any more…). With their fab explore offer on and having a little reward on my points card I didn’t need to feel too guilty and I also finally picked up some pieces I have been after for so long! I have actually tried out all these products (once anyway) as I just couldn’t resist so I will be able to provide my first impressions on each!

When the explore offer started there was one product I knew I had to pick up. That was the Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette, a gorgeous 5 shade eyeshadow palette full of warm rouge-y matte tones. I have seen numerous people using this palette and it looked so beautiful so I just had to snap it up. It is a little pricey for only containing 5 shadows but it has such a great selection of shades that I can see myself using daily. All of the shades are super wearable too and it is easy to take this palette from day to night. From first application, all of these shades are greatly pigmented with great blend-ability and the shadows lasted really well on my lids too! So I am very much looking forward to getting more wear out of this one!

A product that I’ve so desperately wanted for a long time, it was even mentioned on my 2016 wishlist, the Beauty Blender is now finally checked off my list. I’ve been enjoying using the Real Techniques sponge for the last while however it is not the best sponge around and I had heard so many people say that the beauty blender was well superior so I obviously had to try it. When I first received it actually I was a little surprised by the size, whilst I know it ‘grows’ once it’s wet, it looked much smaller than I expected in the packaging. I did pick this up in a set including a mini of the solid cleanser so I was thinking maybe it is a smaller one however when I actually tried it, it did seem to grow to a decent size! Sizing troubles aside, on first use I could definitely see how much better this is compared to the RT one. I won’t say too much as I may do a comparison post but I really like this and I definitely think it is worth the money!

Lastly, Kevin Aucoin is a brand I’ve been longing to try and particularly the Sculpting powder from the line has been at the top of my list! I definitely had a bit of luck with timing as the brand have just launched two new shades of the powder (which always had one being Medium) so now there is a light shade perfect for my pale skin. I obviously picked up that shade and it is perfect for my skin tone. The pan size is rather small but the product is super pigmented and you only need so little product. It is pricey but it is the perfect little contour powder. I am definitely looking forward to getting more use out of this one!

A Cult Beauty Haul


cult-beauty-stila-jouer-liquid-lipstick-patina-nude-petale-de-rose-matte-primerI have been feeling rather spendy lately, I have to admit. A little Cult Beauty splurge will be only one of many little hauls that will be happening this month. I don’t really have an occasion but there has been a few new releases around at the moment that I have been desperate to try out and some other products that I have always had my eye on!

The main reason for my Cult Beauty haul, the new Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipsticks (longest name ever eh). I am totally obsessed with liquid lipsticks at the moment and the new range from Jouer seemed right up my street with a strong range of neutral shades. I picked up the shade Petale De Rose which as it suggests is a gorgeous rosy toned nude shade. I haven’t yet worn it but the colour is so pretty and also has such a lovely vanilla-y scent as well as the uber cute cube style packaging.

Looking through the range online, I thought I would further dip my toes into the brand of Jouer by trying out their very intriguing Anti-Blemish Matte Primer. The makeup-skincare hybrid of this product really drew me in, as well as acting as a matte primer to de-shine and minimise pores, it also contains Salicylic Acid to help treat blemishes. As someone with well blemished skin, this primer sounds very well suited. I have used this once but I am still trying it out, so I will let you all know later how I get on with it.

Lastly, I was super excited to see that the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade Patina was in stock. The dusty pink shade is super popular and has been out of stock for a long while so of course I had to snap it up. I haven’t tried it yet but I have heard such good things about the Stila formula so I am looking forward to trying this out!
