The Best Places to Buy Beauty Products


What can I say, I love to shop! Being a student and an all round makeup hoarder, I like to search out the best deals on beauty products to make the spending that little less painful.

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!

Are you a fan of any of these products?
