Last month was my birthday month, so of course I took the opportunity to buy some things I’ve been wanting for a while, and a couple of impulse purchases too. My main beauty sites are Cult Beauty, Feelunique and Beauty Bay – which is where all of these products can be found. I thought I’d share what I bought with you in case you find any of these interesting, or wanted to know whether I think they are worth it so far!
I have been lusting after the Natasha Denona Sunrise Palette | £60 | for over a year now, and I finally decided that it was time to take the plunge – along with a nice 20% off birthday treat. The colours in this palette are different to anything else I own, and I’d heard good things about ND shadows from multiple people, so I was extremely excited when it finally arrived. The compactness of the palette makes it perfect for travelling, and the shadows are beautiful as well, I definitely want to get one of the larger palettes in the future. I also picked up the Olaplex N°3 Hair Perfector | £26 | since it is a cult favourite in the beauty world and my hair is in need of a boost! I will let you know how this goes, and I’m also intrigued to try the shampoo and conditioner that go along with this too.
I picked up the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile and Lavender | £11 | to try as I’ve previously owned the Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater spray which I enjoyed very much. Currently I wouldn’t purchase this again as I’ve realised I enjoy the scent at night, however I don’t want the scent on my face – for some reason there’s a difference between spraying it on my face and on my pillow. I will use it up obviously, but for the face I think I prefer the Rosewater spray. A new brand and product for me is the Suva Beauty Hydra Liner in ‘Space Panda’ | £12.50 | which I bought to try and get into doing some more creative eye looks with a simpler colour, as this liner is white. Whilst I haven’t tried this yet I’m sure it will live up to the hype it receives! Another new brand to me is Nabla, and I picked up their Cupid’s Arrow Full Colour Stylo in ‘Arrow #1’ | £14.50 | which is described as a hazelnut nude, and is multi-use, however I plan to use this on the eyes as either an all-over eyeshadow or as a base. Again I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m hoping to pick up some more Nabla products in the future so I’ll update you then!
Finally, I picked up three impulse purchases as I had one day left to use my 15% off voucher at Cult Beauty. Another brand that has blown up recently is Summer Fridays with their Jet Lag Mask, | £43 | a hydrating mask that is great for adding extra moisture to the skin, and can be used as a normal mask, an overnight mask, or even as a primer underneath makeup. This really is luxurious and is very thick in texture, yet spreads evenly so you don’t need much to cover the whole face – I purchased the smaller version first to ensure that I enjoy it, and I would definitely pick up the larger size next time. If you’ve read my post on the Konjac Sponge before | review | then you’ll know that I didn’t have a particularly good experience with that particular sponge, so I thought I would buy another one to see if the Calming Chamomile and Pink Clay | £9.99 | is better for my skin than the Green Tea sponge! The last item I picked up is the Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 30 | £30 | review | to add to my growing collection of facial sunscreen’s as you can never really have too many. I was pleasantly surprised by this, and I think it’s worth looking into if you’re after a new sunscreen.
These were the items I picked up over the last couple of months, and I’m looking forward to trying the new things that I got! Have you picked up anything recently?
Love, Emily x
