My last haul post was in early October last year and I realised that apart from essential things I haven't really bought anything since, so in January I allowed myself to pick up a few new goodies. There are also a couple of beauty/makeup gifts I included in this post. Have you guys got anything recently?
Champneys A Little Pick Me Up Set - I have a Champneys body cream so when I got this set for Christmas I was very happy that I can try more products from them. The set includes a shower gel, a daily scrub and a body lotion. They all have a citrus scent and they actually came in a good size bag which is going to be my new travel makeup bag.
B. Makeup Brush Cleanser - I deep cleanse my brushes every week but thought it's a good idea to have a little daily cleanser as well. I think we all know that situation when you need that one dirty brush. It senitises too and the brush dries quickly.
Real Techniques makeup sponge - The whole Beauty Blender hype didn't really get me, I used to have a cheap sponge from Superdrug but couldn't achieve the right coverage so it ended up in the bin soon. Now my skin is a lot better but the reason I bought this is that I can't find the right tool to apply my L'oréal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation. I tried all my brushes, my hands but I feel like it looks patchy on my face. I am still not completely satisfied with the result however I love how my under eye area looks when I dab my concealer in my skin with this!
Empty magnetic palettes - I should have got empty palettes ages ago but didn't want to pay for the original Z-palettes. I don't know why I didn't think of eBay earlier but I decided to have a look eventually and girl, you can find there anything! I bought these for 10Ł each, they are medium size and they arrived fast and in great condition.
Makeup Geek eyeshadows - Now that they are finally easier to get hold of in the UK (BeautyBay) I placed a little order as soon as I could. I purchased 7 of them, including a duochrome, four foiled and two matte shadows. Review is coming up.
Makeup Addiction Flaming Love palette + blending brush - I said only three weeks ago in my 2015 favourites post how well I kept my impulse buying under control last year. Then two weeks ago I came across this palette and after seeing a few swatches, about ten minutes later I was already paying for it... Just to say I'm on shopping stop from today. I haven't had the chance to play with it yet but can't wait. I think there is a couple of potential Makeup Geek dupes in it as well.
I also bought a blending brush because I got free delivery with it. It's very soft and fluffy, good quality.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in Double Dare & Lolita - My boyfriend surprised me with them when he came back from his New York trip. I've only tried Double Dare so far, Lolita seems a bit too dark for me but I will see.
