Recent Purchases.

24 Mar 2014

Recently, I've been doing quite a bit of shopping- mainly beauty- and I thought you'd be interested to see what I've bought and swatches as well!

L'oreal Collection Privee Lipstick "Eva's Nude" £8.19: This was a lipstick that become very popular very quickly in the blogging world and even thought it costs more than what I would normally pay, I fell in love with the colour as it wasn't anything like I'd had before.

 MUA Lipstick #11 £1: I've been wanting to try an MUA lipstick for a while now and whenever I'd been into my local Superdrug, they'd always all sold out. This colour is very similar to my Kate Moss #19 lipstick but a bit more glossy. For only £1, I could hardly say no and the pigmentation is ridiculously good for something of that price.

MUA Blush in "Lolly" £1:  The MUA blushes was also something I'd been waiting to try for a while now as I've always stuck to my Natural Collection blush but I seem to have a new favourite as this. It's not as pigmented as some blushers but I do love this colour. It is slightly chalky but it was still only £1.

Batiste Dry Shampoo "Fresh" £1.47:  Every time I need a new bottle of Batiste, I always go for a different scent and this time it was this one and I think it's actually my favourite one I've had!

Maybelline Colour Tattoo "Pomegranate"£4.99: I was going to buy the Bourjois version of this but when I saw the exact same colour in the Maybelline ones I decided to go for that instead as it's cheaper and I already know how well the Colour Tattoos work.

Barry M Gelly Shine Nail Varnish "Papaya" £3.99: I saw there was new releases in the Gelly Shine line and I was going to buy one of those but I fell in love with this colour; it's not like anything I already have and it would be a perfect colour or summer!On this swatches the right one is one coat and one the left is two layers and as you can see it's fine with only one coat!

Simple Revitalising Eye Roller £3.32: This is supposed to reduce puffiness and make you look more awake and I've been looking so run down with stress that I thought this might help me look less like a zombie. It's got a metal roller ball which help distribute the product as well as help wake you up from the cold tingle.

Avon Clear Skin Pore Mask £3: I've been looking for some good pore unclogging products for a while and I'm yet to find something that actually works so I thought I'd try this out. I liked how it turned from a black liquid to a chalky grey. I've already tried it and I'm yet to see great results but I'll probably try it again before I have a verdict. If you have any pore reducing/unclogging products that you love please let me know!

Collection Cream Puff Lip Cream "Cotton Candy" £2.99: This is my second one of these and I loved the first one so much I thought I'd try this one and I think I prefer the colour to this one. I surprised myself that I actually liked these because the colours aren't something I'd go for and I'm normally just a lipstick kind of person but liked how different this was.

Cabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate, Argan and Grape seed Hand Cream £4.99: I've been wanting one of these hand creams for ages; I just loved the way the packaging looks like a paint tube. Rihannon from Fashion Rocks My Socks has spoken about this before and absolutely loved it so I thought I'd try it out!

Garnier Moisture Match Moisturiser for Dry Skin £2.49: This is the moisturiser I wear under my make up  so I picked up a new tube as mines running out and it was on offer.

Primark Marvel T-shirt £6: Finally, I bought this t-shirt as I've been after some printed tees for ages and I just fell in love with this one and I think I'll get so much wear out of this!

So I hope you enjoyed this post- another photo heavy post and let me know and of your pore unclogging products!
By the time this post goes up, I will be sitting in an art room for the first of a two full day art exam so wish me luck!
