A Few New Things...

This week I picked up a few little bits that I had been on my 'to buy list' for a while. I know I'm very late to the party with some of these, but I thought I'd share them anyway...

I have needed a Beauty Blender (£16.00) in my life for what seems like a million years (...First world problems).
When I saw that I could get 20% off one at Selfridges this Black Friday, I bit the bullet and went for it. I opted for the Classic Pink version as I've heard mixed reviews on the other colours. When it arrived I was shocked at how little it is, but once you run it under the tap to dampen it, it expands to nearly double it's size! I use the flat bottom side to 'bop' my foundation all over my face, and then the pointier end to blend around my nose and eyes. I am 100% converted to this after using foundation brushes for years. I have never been able to get my foundation looking this flawless, so effortlessly before. I'm curious to try the other products in their range now. Any recommendations?

EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint (£6.50) is another product that I have waited far too long to get my hands on. I noticed that Boots started stocking these earlier this year making them now much more readily available. The sweet mint scent appealed to me most and I love the fact that they are 95% organic, and 100% natural. They are also paraben and petrolatum free. At £6.50 they are pricier than the average lip balm, but the packaging is adorable and the design is unique I feel they're a must try.

I started out with the intention of buying an eye-cream. At 25 I decided it was time I invested in one. However, I got distracted in the skincare aisle and picked up Olay Anti-Wrinkle Instant Hydration 2in1 Moisturiser (£9.99) instead. This was reduced down to £4.99 and I was drawn to the fact that it claimed to provide a hydrating and smoothing base under my make up. This has a really light, mousse like texture and it quickly absorbes into the skin. I have been really enjoying this and I definitely think it helps out with the longevity of my make up.

Last but not least I picked up Eylure Pro-Lash Dylash in Black (£9.45). I have been struggling to wear my usual mascaras lately as they have been irritating the areas around my eyes. I picked this up so I could give my eyes a bit of a rest and see if that helped with the issue. The only downside is that I hate leaving the house without a bit of mascara and eyeliner. Being told you look tired and ill is not my best look! So, I thought this might provide a interim solution. I'll keep you updated on how this works out.

I hope everyone is having a great week and I'd love you to enter my giveaway if you haven't already... Speak soon xoxo
