A few recent buys, including this amazing Topshop Studded Makeup Bag that I’ve had my eye on for a while now. I think it’s quite a good size for carting around what you need daily in your handbag. It will also go very well with the Mulberry bag I’m after!
I’m on a bit of a mission at the moment, I really want to get out of the habit of washing my hair each day! I hate the feeling of unwashed hair, but I think I’m just going to have to deal with it as my hair sits so much better when I’ve not washed it. I bought some Batiste dry shampoo and a new Tangle Teezer to help me do it… hopefully over time it won’t need to be washed every day. The Tangle Teezer has been on my wishlist for a while now, and I’m really impressed with it. My hair doesn’t really get massively knotted but sometimes in the mornings I do end up being hard on it and probably causing quite a lot of damage. This is a breeze to use, it flows through hair so easily!
The Rimmel Stay Matte powder has been a favourite of mine for the last few months. If you haven’t purchased this already, you absolutely must! I use this far more than any other powder, including my MAC MSFs. It’s great to give a lovely finish and take away any shine.
Barry M has a new lip colour out, which is 154 Pale Nude. I bought this as their lipsticks are cheap and usually worth the money. I wasn’t able to show you the colour, but it is very similar to MACs Creme Cup, probably slightly more on the matte side and not as good quality. The colour is nice, but I think I’ll stick to the MAC version, Pale Nude looks ever so slightly dry on my lips! (Here’s my post on MAC Creme Cup and Hue)
I also managed to find the new Limited Ed. Creme Brulee Vaseline, I spotted it in a Boots queue the other day. It was the first time I’d seen it so I wasted no time picking it up. It’s not very different from the Cocoa Butter version they have in terms of smell, but I do like it and since it’s winter, I’ll probably get a fair amount of use from it.
Finally, I picked up the Soap and Glory Fab Pore 15 Minute Facial Peel a couple of weeks ago after hearing good things about it. It’s a clay-based mask with exfoliating particles, ideal for problem skin. It’s a great mask, although I’m not sure it does anything for my pores. My skin looks healthier after use, so I’m pleased with the results.
