5 Recent Beauty Purchases

Friday, 6 January 2017


With payday at the end of December and the sales hitting all the shops, I've made a few little purchases over the festive period that I thought I'd share.

I'm kinda addicted to buying falsies now guys. I had so many opportunities to wear them over the holidays, that I'm kinda hooked now. I'd used all of mine at least twice, and all were looking a bit worse for wear, hence why I picked these up. Eylure are my go-to eyelash brand, and these ones by YouTuber/Blogger Fleur are perfect. Not too dramatic, but still very noticeable. 

When I was in Brighton just after christmas, we headed into H&M and I quickly spotted their new beauty line. I literally squealed with excitement. I'd heard so many amazing things about H&M's new and improved beauty line, and its safe to say I am not disappointed. I opted for a blusher, as that was something I'd heard the most hype over. I picked up 'Rosy Brown' which as it says, is a lovely rosy brown shade. Very subtle, perfect for all year round.

I always like to use a moisturiser before applying my makeup, and I'd previously used the Nivea day cream for oily skin, but my skins moved away from that, so this time I picked up the combination offering. This is such a lightweight moisturiser, which is perfect to apply just before you do your makeup. I'd really recommend this, and its down to about £2 at the moment in Boots - what a bargain!

I've wanted this nail polish for such a long time, and now its finally mine haha. I actually got this in a gift set half price in Boots, and I got a pretty good saving. Bahama Mama is perfect for this time of year, its like a plummy red shade. I've actually got it on my nails right now and its still looking tiptop, and doesn't show much sign of shipping anytime soon!

This was the second nail polish that came in the little Essie gift set, and its one I've been after for a long time as well. Chinchilly is an odd colour, but a really nice one at that. Its a beige/grey shade, very unique but one that could be worn all year round in my opinion. I love it. 

What beauty bits have you purchased recently?

  14. I've just found your blog and followed you on bloglovin as I've been really enjoying reading it! I've never actually tried any Essie polishes before but lots of people adore using them. I do gel nails so I don't use normal polish anymore but the colours are pretty!

  16. Lovely post. That blush looks pretty and i definitely need to get back on the nivea moisturiser band wagon. Back when i first got into skincare / makeup I tried the nivea aqua moisturiser i think and i loved it, went back to repurchase it and it was sold out. So then I just picked up another moisturiser and strayed from it. This day cream does sound awesome too.
