Recent Purchases #3

Recent Purchases
It has been just over three months since I last featured any new products that I have purchased. Back then I think I alluded to the fact that I was trying to save a bit and not spend as freely as I had been doing and I have to say I think I've done pretty well. Of course I had a birthday pop up in between that time period which made not buying any treats a lot easier.

There are a few items here that are necessary in my eyes whereby Batiste Dry Shampoo makes an appearance once again along with a repurchase of the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer. Speaking of Seventeen there was an offer running in Boots when I picked these up a few days ago so I also picked up the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint which I'd heard quite a lot about. Sadly I have tried this already and my first impression isn't that great. I've tried it under my eyes to help combat those dark circles but I find it to be quite a dry formula which made it difficult to blend in such a fragile area. I will persevere with it and apply a more hydrating eye cream in that area to see if it helps somewhat but at the moment I'm not too impressed.

Along with products that are easily obtained in Boots I also on a whim picked up a lip liner from Rimmel. This wasn't a planned purchase however seeing as I don't own any lip liners and have being wearing lipstick more I decided it was time to invest in one. I say invest like it was a pricey purchase but this was super cheap and has turned out to be quite a nice liner too. The Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in the shade Eastend Snob was the shade that appealed to me most as it is a mauve pink nude which happens to be one of my favourite shades to wear so I knew it would suit a lot of my lipsticks that I own.

Onto more luxurious treats I had saved some of my birthday money to treat myself to something from Charlotte Tilbury. I decided on the blusher 'Sex on Fire' as the muted pink tones will complement my skin tone nicely and should work really well for the autumn time. The lipstick was a prize that I won from the beautiful Aimee a few weeks ago, she helped me pick out the shade 'Bitch Perfect' which as the name would suggest is pretty perfect. If you like your nude shades like me then this is definitely a shade that will appeal to you.

What have you treated yourself to recently?

  1. Lovely purchases! It's a shame about the Seventeen Phwoarr Paint as I too had heard a lot of good things about it but the formula doesn't sound easy to work with at all.

    Happy belated birthday and well done on your lovely lipstick win!

  18. Batiste will always be on my repurchase list it's just something i restock without really think about it cheap cheerful and does what it says on the tin! :). I really must try something from CT I love the look of these blushers it's interesting as you apply the outer on your cheekbones and the middle on the apples of the cheek haven't seen anything like it xx

  27. I'm forever re-purchasing Batiste, I panic if I haven't got any! It's a really nice concept isn't it, I just need a smaller blush brush to try it out xx

  28. It's really worth trying out in my opinion, I find it so much easier to blend on the skin than the Collection one, it's also not as drying xx
