New Year – New Makeup

I promised myself, when the year started I wouldnโ€™t spend that much on makeup. I lied.

I spent too much.

However, in my defence. Some of the products I bought was just rebuying the same things because I have run out. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

So donโ€™t hate. But hereโ€™s a list of Januaryโ€™s Beauty Haul.

1.Iconic Illuminator Drops ยฃ30

They had a discount code for ยฃ10 off. The original price was ยฃ30. So technically thatโ€™s a good bargain. Right? ๐Ÿ™„

I heard so many good reviews about these drops, I just had to try it out myself. They have four shades, I went with Shine, which is a pink based shimmer to add a pearly shine. It can be used with my foundation, or as a base before I apply my foundation, and also after I’ve applied my foundation as a highlighter.


2. Laura Mercier Translucent Powder ยฃ29

I went to selfridges in Oxford Street for my wedding shoes and they had a Laura Mercier and other dreamy counters, which I was forbidden from buying any other makeup but I needed to repurchase this setting powder as I ran out of it and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. Itโ€™s simply the best translucent powder by far. No flashbacks at all! I would swear by this product for sure!

3. Too Faced Chocolate Gold ยฃ39


This was missions to get hold of! The debenhams website authorised my order then sent an email half hour later after the confirmation email that itโ€™s been cancelled. So then I tried with my brothers card and the same thing happened. I just went into store and ordered it off of them. It was delivered successfully which was a relief and it was worth it! I mean have you seen how dreamy it is. Like oh my ๐Ÿ˜

4. Anastasia Beverly Hills Sugar Glow Kit, Dipbrow Pomade, Brow Gell & Brow Brush ยฃ101


Ok, so after I got the Too Faced palette I was like no, no more. Then CultBeauty email me giving me a 15% discount and I literally couldnโ€™t help myself. And I did need to buy another Dipbrow and restock on brow gel, so I basically did NEED to buy it. Also the Glow Kit was the last one I needed to complete my collection and itโ€™s just literally so pretty, so please, donโ€™t hate?


The pigmentation is so creamy and buttery, it literally is so beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Nars Luminous Foundation and Creamy Concealer ยฃ59

I found a new website thatโ€™s called Fabled by Marie Claire and they combine their deliveries with Ocado. When you sign up they give you a 15% coupon off your first order. The Nars Foundation is my number one favourite and it was another restock, same with the Concealer.ย ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ


6. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. ยฃ22

I heard itโ€™s the best of the best, I had to try it out for myself, and they had free delivery. ๐Ÿ˜‚

It comes with a big doe applicator and it is very full coverage, some days I can just use the concealer on itโ€™s own without any foundation, so it is a win win. The packaging it comes in is so exciting and very well presented.


7. Tarte Limited Edition Make Believe in Yourself Eye and Cheek Palette ยฃ17 and Skin Twinkle Lighting Palette ยฃ25

So you do not understand how badly I have wanted this palette, from when it first launched. It was limited edition and Iโ€™ve been trying to look for it, chase it, but I could never get my hand on it. The Tarte website wouldnโ€™t let me access it from the UK so when I was tracking my shape tape concealer order, I just thought let me just search it and BOOM it was there for ยฃ17!!!! Then to get free delivery I needed to spend ยฃ23 more or pay ยฃ10 for the delivery. So obviously, I went on a hunt and found this highlighter palette on sale for ยฃ25. And then, you know the rest. ๐Ÿ˜‰


8. Mac Fix Plus Coconut, Lip Liner Soar & Lip Conditioner ยฃ46

These were all rebuys, theyโ€™ve got a new range and scents of fix plus I went with coconut, the other scents are the original one, lavender, rose and coconut. Iโ€™m allergic to lavender so that was a no, Iโ€™ve purshaces the rose one before so I thought Iโ€™d try the coconut fix plus. Soar is my favourite lip liner, I use this with anything and everything before I apply any lipsticks. The lip conditioner, I use all the time, it helps keep it hydrated, softย and fresh especially in the winter season itโ€™s horrible. When I apply any lipsticks it doesnโ€™t crack or dry my lips out.


So these are my January makeup buys, I am putting myself in a makeup ban so hopefully I donโ€™t buy anything more! I got a damn. wedding to pay for ๐Ÿ™Š
