Recent Beauty Buys

Hello Lovelies (:

Long time no read! I hope you are all ok and thank you for sticking with me! I thought I would share with you some of the beauty purchases I have made recently.


Essie - Fiji - I have a few Essie polishes already and this is just one of those pale pinks that I just had to add to my ever growing collection.

Real  Techniques - Duo Fiber Brush Collection - I was just brousing the brushes in Boots showing my sister which ones she should get when I saw these on the rack and immediately grabbed them getting all excited I can't wait to try them out.

NARS - Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo - It was like love at first sight, I just popped in to Space NK for some skincare bits for my sister's birthday and thought 'Oh, I'll just have a look at the NARS eyeshadows while I'm here'. So I went over and had a look and just loved these colours, I always tend to play it safe with brown & taupe tones.

DIOR Blush - 943 Strawberry Shortcake - What a lovely pinky colour and gorgeous packaging! This is my first ever Dior purchase, how exciting. I love that there are two parts to this blusher and that it has a slight shimmer to it as I am getting into that dewy finish at the moment.

NARS Blush - Boys Don't Cry - I can't bring myself to swatch this beautiful blush! I know i'll have to though otherwise it will just be a waste of a gorgeous prodcut, I'm hoping this will give me a nice bit of colour and highlight all in one.

Dior Addict Gloss - 063 Fascinante -This is my very first Dior Gloss! It is also one of the brightest glosses that I own, it applies quite sheer though which I like and I love that it isn't sticky. I now want to buy more of these glosses! Or perhaps I should give the YSL ones a go, they look gorgeous too.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo - 70 Metallic Pomegranate - I like these colour tattoos as they last a long time and don't crease. I do have to use them with an eyelid primer though as I have fairly oily eyelids. This colour looked pretty and different compared to my usual browns and taupes. I can't wait to give it a try.

That's all of my recent purchases, I will probably end up buying more tomorrow when I go shopping. I can't help it I am addicted!

Thank you for reading


  1. Omg! That NARS blush is stunning! I probably wouldn't use it either... Too pretty!

    1. It is a very pretty colour and the gold is just on the top layer so it isn't too shimmery! xo

  2. Love the Essie nail color! Would u like to follow echother perhaps? Xxx
