A Little Beauty Haul.


So, whilst there isn't too many products here to talk about, it definitely isn't my cheapest haul ever. I've found myself cutting back on the beauty spending recently, at least in terms of going into Boots every week and spending a good £40+ and taking home quite a few items. I'm going for quality over quantity these days, and my latest few purchases definitely showcase that!

First up, I have to talk about the Bobbi Brown Sand Palette from their latest Surf & Sand collection - is this just the most beautiful thing you've ever seen? I absolutely love the shades, they're all very 'me' and I know I'll get use out of every single one which is quite rare for me. The entire collection is really beautiful, but having only one eyeshadow palette I really wanted this one, and I haven't been disappointed with it yet. A couple of the shades are very lightly pigmented compared to the others, but they are described as 'sparkle shadows' so I think they're meant to be like that, and they look lovely worn in the inner corner or on the brow bone.

The latest Marc Jacobs fragrance Daisy Dream has been just about everywhere for the past couple months, so I knew I had to give it a try. I spritzed a bit on first thing when walking around the Trafford Centre, and it developed really nicely on me so I picked up the 50ml bottle. Oh, the bottle. Like all the rest from MJ it's absolutely gorgeous, and probably my favourite from him actually. The scent itself is like a slightly grown up Daisy with a really lovely freshness to it. And last but not least, I finally caved under the hype pressure and bought the NARS Creamy Concealer, and so far I don't know how I've managed without it. The drugstore do some really good ones so I thought it wouldn't be that much better for the price, but I was so wrong. It's incredible coverage with just a tiny amount of product, it blends flawlessly and lasts all day too. I'll be popping a full review of this up soon, but safe to say it's definitely love, and so worth the hype!

  3. These items are at the top of my wishlist as well, I've just heard so much about each of them and they all sound equally as amazing! The Bobbi Brown palette is so beautiful, but I have enough sheerer shadows so I kind of need to resist that one! As for Daisy Dream and the Nars concealer, I don't know how much longer I'll be able to last!

    I'm definitely pining for that eyeshadow palette, though I don't think I can justify another natural palette, sadly :(
