My week on Instagram ♥

Back to reality this week after enjoying a few days off work. I enjoyed every second of relaxing and watching Will & Grace marathons. I even managed to squeeze in some shopping and cocktails for my birthday. ♥

I’ve put together a collection of my favourite images that I’ve uploaded over the last week. It’s quite girly with a hint of Chanel and Kate Moss thrown into the mix. 😉

Simply Sephora: Part 2

At the start of February, I blogged about my first ever shopping trip to Sephora. I shared their nude eyeshadow palette that I bought, and today I’m going to finish off my spree with the rest of my purchases.

It’s safe to say that I’ve become infatuated with the brand and in particular their eyeshadows. I love how great the pigmentation is in each shade. They’re rich, warm and worth every penny.

I’m sure you’ve all noticed that I’m a huge fan of natural coloured shadows, so I thought that I would continue my trend and purchase these two breathtaking colours.

image

image

My first choice was this natural shimmer called ‘Romantic Comedy’. It’s more of a warmer shade. I wouldn’t use this kind of colour as an overall base type, but, I would use it on my lid to give my look a little glow.

Next, I treated myself to this fabulous glitter shadow called ‘Girl Talk’. Both shadows are long lasting and this second colour is perfect for adding a little sparkle to my make up look. It is a little darker than ‘Romantic Comedy’ but it really pops when it’s applied to the lid. Again, the pigmentation is unbelievable, especially with the glitter running throughout it.

image

When I’m doing my make up, I will always use a highlighter on my eyes, nose and cheek bones. It emphasises my features and helps to make my skin glow. I prefer a pink/golden tone when using this kind of product. I opted for Sephora’s own brand and added their highlighting compact powder in ‘Rose Pink’ to my shopping spree.

image

I love the delicate snowflake style imprints on the powder. It makes it even more appealing and I just had to have it. ♥

image

Finally, my last buy! After sorting out my eyes and cheek bones, I moved onto their lip section. A long lasting, high gloss colour is very important to me when shopping for lip glosses/lipsticks. Again, I went for a natural coloured lipstick pencil shade called ‘Gorgeous Peach’. It gives off a high gloss shine and moisturises my lips all at the same time. Perfection! 🙂

So, that was pretty much my Sephora shopping spree. It’s pretty safe to say that I shopped until I dropped for my first ever experience there.

Superdrug Beauty Haul

Last night I took a quick trip into Superdrug to shop up on a few of my essentials and take advantage of their festive offers.

I love the beauty brand, Bourjois, so I was over the moon when they had a 3 for 2 offer across all of the beauty collection. With this offer I got their 123 foundation corrector, a natural base eye shadow and a pretty pink lip crayon.

I also decided to stock up on my favourite red nail polish by Rimmel and the amazing backcomb dust by TRESemmè.

I’m a secret geek who finds joy in grabbing a good offer so couldn’t resist sharing. Enjoy! 😉

Superdrug Haul

Yesterday I ventured into Superdrug with the intention of buying some nail polish remover. Next thing I know, my bank balance was £60 down but I could be happier. Sometimes it’s the small things in life that make me happy like buying a new blusher, trying out a new product or treating myself to my new favourite make up brushes by Real Techniques. (That makes me sound extremely materialistic but you know what I mean! )

image

I’m going to start my haul with something Simple. I used this brand before for all of my skin care but since converting to another brand, I’ve recently found heaven again in their eye make up remover pads. They’re soft on my eyes, which is great since it’s such a delicate area. There is no alcohol or oil, artificial perfume or colouring which is important when taking care of your skin.

image

Next up on the big haul, is these stunning Bourjois blusher, eye shadow and lipstick. I’m going to kick it off with this beautiful blusher in a smouldering Rose Coup shade. It is a fine, lightly textured and incredibly transparent blusher which is perfect for blending. It gives such a healthy glow and looks perfectly natural.

image

Moving onto my new favourite colour shot eye shadow, it literally sparkles like a diamond and is perfect for the summer season. I love how it offers an intense and high coverage look while lasting long throughout the day and night. It’s highly concentrated pigments blend into a very silky and easy to apply powder. You can even use it as a liner by applying it with a slightly wet brush, perfect!

image

If there is one beauty product that I love, it’s the trusty and timeless lipstick. I picked up this gorgeous coral shade from Bourjois and their Rouge Edition range. I love how soft it is yet provides you with a serious pop of colour. Once again, it’s perfect for the summer months and can be worn during the day or on a night out. It adds a touch of moisture to my lips which I absolutely love. I bought all three Bourjois products and got these pretty summer sunglasses free with my purchases. Not bad, eh? 😉

I’ve recently become addicted to Samantha Chapman’s Real Techniques make up brushes, they’re soft and professional and perfect for applying make up with. A while ago, I bought this brush set ( you can view my post here ) and I wanted to expand my collection. I bought myself a blusher, powder and stippling brush. Each brush provides you with a flawlessly blended look for an air brushed and highly defined look. I can’t recommend these enough, they’re perfect and are sold at such an affordable price!

I bought a few other pieces, but, I don’t think you ladies need to see my hair spray and nail polish remover! 😉 Hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend!
