Recent Beauty Purchases – Makeup Revolution, Real Techniques & More

Hey Sweeties,

Forever the beauty junky, I have, over the last month or so, picked up a few more beauty things… as you do!

Beauty haul

First up, the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Golden Sugar. I have been after this palette for ages, but from what I was lead to believe (true or not), the palette was sold out everywhere. However, this didn’t stop me popping into every Superdrug I passed until I hit the jackpot! On the same visit, Lady Luck was obviously on my side that day as on my way to the till point, I saw (and swiftly picked up) the Real Techniques limited edition Sculpting Set for an amazing £13.99! I practically skipped the whole way home, I was that delighted!

As you know, I love TK Maxx, I am always in one of my nearby stores rummaging around for bargains, usually for home ware but I do always pass by the beauty shelves. I am sure I am not alone, but what disappoints me about the beauty area in the stores is that it’s always such a mess and most of the products are damaged or clearly fingered, so it’s quite rare to actually find something worth buying in good condition. Saying that, a good bargain can still be found, particularly in the case of the Two Faced Foundation Powder! I am in love with my Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer (review here) which I got for Christmas so I jumped at the opportunity to try another of Too Faced’s products.

Lately, I have been paying a lot of attention to my skincare, particularly in the mornings when until recently changing jobs, I was pressured for time. One of the elements that I felt I wanted to invest in and incorporate more fully is serum, and until recently I have just been using sample products. Now, my knowledge of beauty brands and products is coming along nicely but with skincare, I don’t feel I have anywhere near the kind of knowledge I would like and I therefore rely on reviews heavily. Saying that, I still have my reservations but mainly this is over price and my reluctance to spend a lot on something I am not entirely sure will be worth it. So while in TK MAXX (different store, different day), I decided, quite out of the blue, I would take a gamble on the Elizabeth Arden Timefighting Radiance Serum (£16.99 rrp £45).

Finally (and sneakily) because I simply found myself with time to kill and there was a Boots nearby! (#sorrynotsorry), I purchased Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 006, Pink Blush.

      You honestly can’t go wrong with Real Techniques brushes, they are well worth it! As for the palette… it’s beautiful! I am so enjoying it at the moment so if you can get it I would strongly recommend you do, think it was about £10 -bargain! 🙂
