I've bought quite a lot recently, but I thought I'd make a post containing a few things that I've bought and loved.
I decided to do this after receiving quite a large amount of MUA cosmetics that I ordered from their site. If I remember correctly, all of these items cost around £13... pretty cheap really considering that I bought 8 items with that money!
I was really impressed with some of the things that I ordered. The brow and eye pencil in particular are really pigmented and just soft enough. They are amazing at £1 each! I'm usually not too fond of spending a lot on pencil liners so I'm super happy with these – the white liner even comes with its own sharpener and the brow pencil comes with a brush to groom your unruly eyebrows, too!
I got the clear mascara because it's cheap and works to keep my eyebrows in place. Maybe another time I should try one of their black mascaras and see how it holds up.
The other items I haven't managed to try properly yet, but I did think lipstick formulas felt particularly non-drying. I'll probably review all of these products at some point!
|Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit in Porcelain|
This is the Creamy Concealer Kit by Bobbi Brown in the porcelain shade- which is the lightest.
I'd previously bought the corrector which comes in a slightly paler colour and thought that this was too dark when I first tried it. But combined with the white powder that accompanies the concealer it really is incredibly good. Maybe at one point I'll reorder my corrector too as they're meant to work amazing together.
|The Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer and scrub|
Next are my current favourite moisturising duo! I've been using The Body Shop's Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream and Nourishing Night Cream for about a year now and so far I haven't wanted to try anything else! I suffer from mostly normal skin, but now and then dry patches appear on my cheeks or between my eyebrows and these amazing moisturizers clear that right up. I'm always worried when I use new face products in case they'll make me break out in spots, but I have only good things to say about these two.
The Cream exfoliator I bought because Body Shop currently had a 3 for 2 offer on skin care. It's okay; I'm sure I'll use it if I get dry patches again. It's incredibly gentle though and I prefer to feel like my dead skin cells are coming off when I exfoliate, so I think I'll stick to my St Ive's apricot scrub.
Recently on Buyapowa I bought two 125ml bottles of Bio-Oil for £11.50, that's £19 less than RRP!
I've been looking at Bio-Oil for a while now because I have stretch marks from when I lost some weight fairly quickly a couple of years ago.
If you haven't heard of Bio-Oil; it's said to help minimise scarring, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, and help aging and dehydrated skin.
I've heard good things but I'm not expecting miracles; but with two good sized bottles at least I have enough to see if it'll work for me!
Last but not least are these incredibly cute heart earrings that I bought from the River Island Boutique store in Cambridge.
I didn't even know that this shop existed, but now that I know I'm sure that I'll be spending more money there! They sell my favourite parts of River Island: the shoes, bags and accessories!
