February Pretty Purchases

Pretty Purchases
There's been lots of new things that I've wanted to try recently, so over the past couple of months I've had a little bit of a splurge and it's safe to say that me and my purse are probably not on the best of terms any more. Shopping rehab needed!

Dior Glowing Garden Highlight & By Terry Spring Ombre Blackstars
Dior | Glowing Gardens Highlighter
I literally died and went to makeup heaven when I saw pictures of the Dior Glowing Gardens Spring collection on the internet and instantly needed to get my hands on it once it was released. I managed to buy the Glowing Pink Highlighter which has the prettiest embossed flower print ever. The highlighters are really hard to get hold of because they kept selling out instantly so I was so happy to finally purchase one. I also sneakily bought two of them so if you're still on the lookout for it, head over to my  Depop because I have a brand new one for sale!

By Terry | Ombre Blackstars, Nude Milky Way & Bubble Glow
I had £15 worth of Space NK points to use up and I'd heard that By Terry had released two new shades of the amazing Ombre Blackstars for Spring. I already own two which I love so I thought it would be a worthwhile purchase. The new shades are Nude Milky Way and Bubble Glow and I will be reviewing them soon!

Fleur de Force | Fleur Loves Lashes
Fleur de Force | Fleur Loves, Lashes
I've found a new obsession with the Fleur Loves Lashes. I've never been a big false lash lover, I find them tricky to apply and irritating on my eye and sometimes look a bit OTT on me. I only ever used to wear individuals occasionally! The Fleur Loves Lashes though are a 3/4 length style and are so so easy to apply, they look natural but still fluttery and pretty and really compliment winged liner, which I wear everyday. They are super lightweight and I can barely feel them that I forget I'm even wearing them. I do find that they are out of stock quite often though so as soon as I noticed they were back I had to stock up, and with some miracle they were 3 for 2 as well! 

Dose of Colors | Stone Liquid Matte Lipstick
Dose Of Colors | Stone Liquid Matte Lipstick
The mauve, nude brown lipstick shade has blown up this past year or so and one of the coveted shades is Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick in Stone. It's quite hard to get hold of in the UK, especially as it's such a popular shade but I managed to order it whilst it came back in stock briefly. I wasn't sure if it would suit me as I'm quite pale, but I absolutely love it! The colour is the perfect mauve nude with just the right amount of pink that it doesn't wash me out. I also think the formula is amazing, it applys pigmented and streak free, dries matte but is really comfortable to wear and lasts forever on the lips. I would definitely purchase more from this range.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector | Pearl, Pressed
Becca | Shimmering Skin Perfector, Pearl
As soon as I heard about Becca releasing the Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector in a pressed form I was excited, I already own Moonstone and it's one of my favourites and the formula is perfect. It took a while for it to come to the UK, it isn't even in Space NK yet, but I've been creeping on the Cult Beauty website waiting for it like the super cool person I am. I love light coloured highlighters, and Pearl is probably the lightest shade you can get, so it would be amazing for you if you are pretty pale! It's a gorgeous frosty, white pearl shade and looks beautiful on it's own or mixed with other highlighters. I really recommend the Becca highlighters, they are so pigmented and are so worth the money.

Yankee Candle | Fresh Cut Roses & Bunny Cake
Yankee Candles | Fresh Cut Roses & Bunny Cake
I obviously couldn't wait for Winter to be over (January and February are the worst months) and I ordered two Spring themed Yankee Candles that I had always wanted to try whilst I found them on offer. Fresh Cut Roses has a gorgeous rose scent that smells just like a florists, so perfect for Spring. I also got Bunny Cake because it was so cute I couldn't resist, and it smells so damn good like birthday cake and buttercream frosting but with a fresh element to it aswell. 

What do you think?

    1. I bought it on Beauty Bay! I checked again on there last night (cos surprise surprise I was buying more stuff) and they only had two shades left in stock at the moment which is Berry Me and Merlot I think! I really want to try Champagne Pop but I'm worried it would be too gold for my liking! Thanks hun! xo

    2. I love that website! Oh yeah, I'm not sure about either of those shades because I quite like my nudes haha.. I'll keep an eye out on there though - thanks!! :) You should definitely try it out! It's a lot lighter on the cheeks than it is in the pan, I've got really pale skin and you can't notice the colour on my skin if that helps xo
