It has been a while since I done a haul post, and I think that is due to a combination of not shopping as much as I used to and also because I tend to pick up things nowadays sporadically rather than all at once. However I have gathered a few beauty bits recently so I thought I would do a collective beauty haul with you today and show you the goodies that have caught my attention.
I picked this Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss up from Duty Free when I went to Portugal, so I have had it for a little while now. The shade I picked up is 51 Insouciance, which is a gorgeous creamy brown nude shade with peachy undertones that really flatter my skin tone. I’ve been wanting a high end lip gloss for quite some time, especially in a nude shade so that I can wear quite easy and quite often. This shade is the perfect nude for me, and it is so easy to apply. The applicator gives really good precision and the finish of the gloss is creamy and opaque but not sticky at all. However I am really disappointed to find that I can’t find this gloss anywhere online in the UK. I really hope it isn’t discontinued but I have a sneaky feeling that it is. Just my luck, I find the perfect nude lip gloss and it’s not available anymore.
Next, a limited edition item which is thankfully still available. I was perusing the aisles of Superdrug when I noticed the Real Techniques Sculpting Set which I just had to have. I love Real Technique brushes and this set looked like it had brushes I would make good use of, I tend to stay away from sets where I can’t see use for every single brush. I really like the look of the fan brush as it seems light and perfect for highlighting, and also the smaller setting brush would be perfect for contour for me as I like a small brush for precision. You can pick this up here for £20.99.
If you are a long time reader of this blog, the fact that I stocked up on Bioderma h20 Micellar Water comes as no surprise to you. I don’t really know what to say about it other than it is a Holy Grail product for me and I cannot live without it! You can find my more in depth rave about it here. I always buy it from Amazon as I find that to be the cheapest place to buy two 500ml bottles from, although you might want to search elsewhere if you were after smaller bottles. You can pick up 2 x 500ml here for £21.70.
Last weekend I went to London for a bit of shopping and afternoon tea with my friend (you can read more about that here). Whilst we were there I had to of course pop into MAC and see if there was anything that caught my attention. I adore MAC lip products especially their matte lipsticks and lip pencils. MAC Whirl Lip Pencil has been the ‘it’ lip liner for quite some time now, after Kylie Jenner mentioned it was her go to lip pencil for her signature dusty rose lip look. I’ve been meaning to get hold of it for a while as I really like the shade, but it seemed to be constantly sold out. Luckily MAC St Pancras had some in stock so I finally got my hands on it. I will do a full review on it soon. You can pick it up here for £12.50.
Last but definitely not least, I finally got my hands on a perfume I have wanted for ages! Technically it isn’t really a purchase as it was a gift from my best friend but it is such a beautiful perfume that I HAD to add it in. I have wanted Miss Dior Eau de Parfum for the longest time, I mentioned it in a wish list in 2013 (read that here)! Two years later this beautiful perfume is finally mine. I just love the scent, it reminds me of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle a lot, which is great as that is my all-time favourite scent. You can pick it up here for £49.50.
Talking of wish lists, I have decided to finally create a wish list page on my blog as I have always wanted one so that all my shopping wants are all in one place, and also I wanted the satisfaction of crossing something off the list once I got my mitts on it! If you wanted to know what I am lusting over, you can take a peek at my new page.
I hope you liked today’s post, it was a little mish mash of different types of products but I thought I would share them with you as I always find it interesting to see what people are popping into their shopping bags! Speak soon, Tanzina x
