I've been majorly slacking with my blog recently and I was even more put off when I found two blogs (here and here) both by the same person, that had completely copied and pasted all of my blog posts, pictures and everything, even down to my blog name. To say I was disheartened would be an understatement. I'm only a small time blogger but it just kind of upset me because I do work hard on the posts that I share, and I don't think people realise the time it takes to create a blog post, so for someone to just rip it all off was just very frustrating. Who has the time to sit there and do that?! There are some weird people in the world. Sighh.
Anyway, enough of me being a total Debbie Downer, as you can probably tell by the title, I may have been feeling a little bit spendy these past few weeks so I thought I'd share my recent beauty buys!
I've been desperate to try out the new Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation as it sounded like the perfect foundation for me. It claims to give amazing coverage and last all day, whilst still feeling super light on the skin. Although the reviews I'd read for it were completely 50/50, I swatched it in store and was shocked at how far a tiny pump spread and it was that which basically convinced me I needed to try it out. I got the shade Deauville which I think may be a tiny bit too dark for me (the sales assistant wasn't particularly helpful) but I'll see how I get on with it and will definitely write an update about it!
Whilst I was in Space NK swatching every pretty thing in sight (as you do), I saw this Nars Duo Intensity Eyeshadow in the shade Callisto and instantly decided that there was no way I'd be able to leave the shop without it. It's a gorgeous shimmery, champagne, lilac shade and it's so pigmented I can't even tell you!
I also finally took the plunge and picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade, in the shade Taupe, along with the no. 12 brush to see what all the fuss was about. I've had these two for a few weeks now and can tell you that it really is such a good product, but you do have to be careful to not use too much! I don't always use it though as I find I take a lot longer perfecting my brows, as I have to be really precise with it, than if I was using my usual Soap & Glory Archery which takes me all of two minutes.
Oh look another Mac lipstick! Anyone would think I have an obsession, (it's healthy I swear...) I'd had my eye on both Mac Please Me or Pink Plaid and it took me ages to decide in store which one to get as they are both practically the same, except Pink Plaid is more blue toned. I eventually went with Please Me as I thought it might be a little easier to pull off. It's such a pretty, rosy pink shade and I can't stop wearing it!
And lastly, the prettiest of them all! I took a major leap and bought the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette, which is probably the most expensive makeup product that I've ever bought but damnn, it's so so gorgeous! I already own Dim Infusion which is my favourite blush ever, the formula is amazing as it seems to just glide across and smooth out the skin, it blends out really well and lasts all day. So I knew that even though this little one was going to make my bank balance weep, it would be so worth it! The shades it contains are Luminous Flush, Incandescent Electra and Mood Exposure and I'm a little bit in love with it already.
Do you own any of these products?
