Hey everyone! Hope you’ve all had a good week – finally Friday wohoo!
To go along with this Friday happiness, I’m going to be showing you some recent purchases that have made me quite happy lately! Some are still to be tested, whilst others are soon up for review.
Here’s what I got in the past couple of weeks:
Let’s take a look in more detail shall we? 🙂
I went on a very quick and last minute trip to the UK last week and stocked up on some dry shampoos. Batiste and Wilko are brands that we don’t get here so really wanted to try them out. Batiste, I know for a fact is just brilliant, but Wilko I have yet to try. Anyone tried these?
Apart from that, I also did a bit of online shopping and got a hold of Milk_Shake’s Integrity Booster which is meant to restructure and strengthen hair that’s been chemically treated and deeply condition it. I’d been eyeing this for a while and thought that it would be perfect to try out due to the summer sun and sea water .
Fudge’s Sea Salt was also something I have been dying to try – well, sea salt spray in general. I just love beach waves and can’t wait to try this out. Should really have bought this in the beginning of summer! Oh well!
Lastly, a nourishing hair oil from Lovea, however this was given to me free of charge with a purchase I had made from mypure.co.uk. This site has great beauty and health products that are all vegan and cruelty free – definitely worth checking out!
Skin & Body Care:
During my UK visit, I of course paid a visit to Lush Cosmetics as unfortunately we don’t have that here. I’m always on the look-out for great deodorants that are natural and aluminium-free so I picked up their deodorant powder ‘The Greeench’.
I also got a hold of their Mask of Magnaminty which is meant to help against outbreaks as unfortunately, I have been getting quite a few of those lately due to the hot weather.
Make up – Lips & Cheek:
I wanted something neutral that I could quickly apply to my lips when rushing about during the day that wasn’t a lipstick but not a gloss either. This is where Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector came in. Such a pretty, natural colour that’s also super hydrating on the lips. This was just what I was looking for.
The lip and cheek tint from Jane Iredale was also given to me free of charge when I made a purchase from beautybay.com. I still need to test this out properly, but it’s a really cute and fun summery colour that works well on both the lips and the cheeks whilst providing great pigment and intense hydration.
Make up: Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette & Brow Pencil.
The most sinful of my purchases but by far the most exciting! The Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (Light to Medium) has been something I have been lusting over for so so long. I noticed it fell in price online (beautybay) and immediately bought it. I just couldn’t resist any longer! I have yet to try this and a full review will definitely soon follow! After hearing such great things, I wonder if this will live up to the hype.
Lastly, Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil. I just love this brand so I thought I’d give this a go as my current brow pencil is soon nearing the end. I has a spoolie at the end which I really like and is a pencil that needs to be sharpened as opposed to twisted upwards so it will definitely last quite a while. Also can’t wait to try this out!
So that’s what I’ve got lately! Have any of you tried any of these products? Would love to know what you think of them!
