So I thought I was having a relatively restrained November, until I put all my new beauty purchases together and realised that actually that was very much not the case. Yup, I'm guilty of buying yet again more makeup! I would pinky promise that it won't ever happen again, but I would definitely end up breaking that promise and that just wouldn't be fair on any of us...
Becca | Shimmering Skin Perfector, Moonstone
I'd had this particular highlight on my wishlist for a while, and I can safely say I'm holding NikkieTutorials responsible for this one! She uses Moonstone a lot in her YouTube videos and it just looks so stunning and like the perfect shade for my skintone! It's a gorgeous pearly shade with a hint of pale gold to it and it is seriously pigmented so you really don't need to use much. I'm loving it so far and it's perfect for when I want something a little more intense than my usual go-to Mac Lightscapade.
Soap & Glory | One Heck Of A Blot, Primer
Estee Lauder | Double Wear, Foundation
I had previously sworn off this foundation for the fact that it is super full coverage and can be pretty cakey if you wear too much. However, since getting a new job where I knew I wouldn't be able to just whip my compact powder out and blot my face whenever I wanted, I needed something that would last during the entire day. Double Wear is the only foundation that I can wear that will genuinely last all day and still look presentable even when I haven't had a chance to touch up or powder my face! I only apply it in small amounts, and blend it using the Real Techniques Sponge so that it looks seamless and not too much. It's basically flawless skin in a bottle, but hey I'm pretty late to the bandwagon so you're probably very much aware!
Nars | Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
Anastasia Beverly Hills | Illuminator, Starlight
And lastly, the star product, being one of Anastasia Beverly Hills new Illuminators in the shade Starlight. Once I'd heard about these new releases (and seen them about a million times on Instagram) I instantly joined in on the fangirling. I was all heart-eyed over Starlight, but it had been sold out online for a while so when I saw it was back in stock on Cult Beauty I quickly nabbed it! I adore the gorgeous textured design of the highlight and it's such a pretty frosty, ivory shade which looks beautiful on pale skintones.
What do you think of my purchases?
