You know when your beauty wishlist is just a little out of control and the only way to tame it is to just tick a few things off of it?! Well thankfully Ocean have kindly gifted me £50 to help me do just that, so obviously new beauty products means a shiny new blog post right?
Charlotte Tilbury | Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro Powder | £33
I've been lusting after this beauty from Charlotte Tilbury for the longest time, (and I swear it was unavailable for a while too?!) and as I'd been having issues finding a good powder recently I thought this would be the perfect one to try. I've only had the chance to test it a few times so far, but I can already tell it's probably going to become an expensive addiction. It sets my foundation really well and smooths out my skin without looking the slightest bit cakey (hoorah) and I adore the classic rose gold compact which looks so beautiful.
Luxie is one of those brands I've been dying to try for so long but never been able to get my hands on here in the UK, so when I got an email from Beauty Bay announcing they were now stocking Luxie, I got a tad excited and headed over there instantly. A girl just needs pink makeup brushes in her life! I picked out the 520 Tapered Face Brush as I thought it would be the perfect powder brush and it's been working beautifully with my Charlotte Tilbury powder. I also got the 504 Large Angled Brush which I thought could replace my battered Zoeva Luxe Sheer Cheek brush which I use all the time for bronzer and blush. It's a little smaller that I'd hoped but is a lovely size for carving out some cheekbones! Both brushes are super soft and fluffy and I will definitely be purchasing more in the future.
I've not tried a great deal from Pixi, I always seem to almost buy their products but for some reason talk myself out of it. Yet I was browsing the beauty section in Marks & Spencers (which is so underrated by the way) and gave the Makeup Fixing Mist a little spritz on my face. It wasn't until I walked away that I noticed it really 'setting' my makeup and I decided I needed it right then and there. It's really refreshing, smells lovely and actually does a good job of keeping my makeup in place. I've been loving it so much, even more so that my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray! I also picked up the Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloths even though I don't usually use makeup wipes, but I thought they'd be handy to take with me on my upcoming holiday and the pink packaging was just staring me out...
Rosie for Autograph | Summer Rose Shimmer Body Oil | £15
I've been looking for a shimmer body oil to take with me on holiday and I decided to pick up this gorgeous Summer Rose version from Rosie for Autograph. The packaging is so pretty and the product itself looks lovely, although I've not tried it yet on my pasty white bod...I'm waiting for the sort of tan I'll get in the sun (wishful thinking, I'll probably go red and peel). It does annoy me that it doesn't come with a pump but at £15 I can't really complain.
