Recent buys #1 | Beauty

So, we're already at my first haul...Here's some bits and bobs I've purchased over the past two weeks! I thought it would be much easier to update you all on my purchases through blog posts, rather than having to upload videos all the time as these are much easier to look through. I'm really excited to share this haul with you, as i dont share all of my puchases, but i think I've bought some really great things this time round!

Starting with makeup, I took a trip into beales, and thats one place, along with space NK, that i never manage to leave empty handed. I initially went in to buy the clarins gentle exfoliator brightening toner, but when i saw that they still had their offer on to receive 4 free samples with 2 purchases, i jumped at the chance and managed to end up purchasing the toner along with two things from their splendours summer collection: the eyeshadow palette, and the beautiful bronzing powder. I have to say, these two products do not disappoint. The bronzing powder is the perfect shade of bronze, with lighter and darker areas so you can control how dark you want your bronzed look to be. The bronzer is matte, with only the centre being a shimmery golden shade, which you can swirl in to give the bronzer a lovely golden glow. The eyeshadow palette has 4 shades, along with a strip of black eyeliner, so its a great little palette to create a whole look, which makes it perfect for travelling or touch ups on the go. i'll definitely be using these in tutorials in the future, and i may also write some reviews, but they are limited edition so go get them before they're gone!

I then went over to mac, and lets just say thats never a good thing for my bank account...I always end up coming out with numerous lipsticks, and thats exactly what happened today. I ended up picking up the shade amorous, along with two shades i'd been lusting over for months: chilli and impassioned. Amarous being a wearable plum, chilli a gorgeous, matte, deep orange red, and impassioned a bright coral pink, i thought these would be great additions to my collection. I also got persuaded into buying a limited edition lipstick from the temperature rising collection, in the shade feel my pulse. It's very similar to MAC violetta which i already own, but much more wearable as its less shimmery and muted, being a cremesheen rather than an amplified. i may take this one back, but it was the last one so i had to snatch it up! My final two things from mac were the prep + prime highlighter in lightboost, and the 239 eyeshadow brush. I'd been after lightboost for quite some time as i love a highlighted look, and since i was after a new eyeshadow brush i thought the 239 would be perfect as it packs on the lid colour, and is also great for lining the eyes with shadow.

Finally, i have a topshop cheek duo in the shade 'desert sun', which is a blush/highlight/bronzer in one. I love multipurpose products, as their great for days when you want to look like you've made an effort, but you really don't have the time to. The blush has a marbled effect, with one side being the blush which is a lovely coral pink, and the other side being the bronzer which is a shimmery golden brown which is not too dark. To be honest i just added this to cart so i didn't have to pay for shipping, but i'm glad i did!

So thats it for my first beauty haul, a fashion haul will be up tomorrow so look out for that!
I purchased my clarins and MAC products from beales, and topshop makeup is available online and in selected stores.
