Walking past Debenhams and seeing a 10% off fragrance and cosmetics sign lurking in the window was not good in my current economic state. I did need new make up, but instead of restricting myself to the cheaper brands in drugstores I decided to splash the cash on some high ended products.. But all within good reason, I am so pleased with my new products and am so excited for freshers now to experiment with these new bad boys!
Any regular readers of my blog will know that my go to foundation is Bare Minerals Powder (see my review here), but for evenings out I always like to wear a foundation with a little extra coverage. I opted for a Clinique foundation as I’ve had one in the past and was very pleased with the result. I was advised by the consultant to go for this Even Better foundation as it gives good coverage and doesn’t cause extra shine, two properties essential for a night out! I mean, you don’t want your make up sliding off or your skin glowing like a disco light whilst clubbing with the girls, do you?
I love Vera Wang perfumes, they all smell so sweet and fruity, something that I always look for in a perfume. My mum decided to treat me to this one and I love it. It smells amazing and is also really long lasting, with the cutest packaging ever! For me, the packaging of a perfume bottle has to be pretty and bright.. It’s almost as important as the scent itself!
This is my absolute favourite product in the world. I can’t go out without using this and my other one has just started to run out after a good few months of usage. It’s amazing as you hardly need to use anything and it gives perfect brows every time! See my eye brow tutorial here.
I was given this little freebie when I bought my mascara – another reason I love Clinique. I never tend to wear higher end brand mascaras so am excited to give this a go. Mascaras are one of my favourite products and I always look for mascaras that give length and heaps of volume!
Bloggers have raved about Urban Decay eye palettes, but I actually went to get a new eye liner. When I saw this palette complete with the eye liner I wanted and an eye primer, along with amazing colours I just couldn’t resist. The colours are so vibrant and bright, and you can create such fabulous styles with these, ones to match any outfit. I’m so excited to start using it and will be doing reviews as soon as I experiment with some different looks! 😀
Lots of love, Jessie. xoxo
