Saturday Splurge: New Beauty Purchases

Hello everyone! I went a on a little spending spree yesterday and treated myself to a few new things:
The YSL Fusion Ink Foundation was a repurchase as I have recently run out. I have been loving this foundation and it certainly lived up to it's much awaited hype. It is ideal for my oily skin and feels like silk when you apply it. I also picked up a Revlon Ultra HD lipstick in the colour Rose (because a girl can never have too many rose coloured lipsticks!). This range has had rave reviews and I'm so excited to try it. Next, I raided Bourjois and came away with Brow Beauty Touch and Contour Clubbing Eyeliner in Blue Remix.  I usually use Benefit's High Beam to highlight underneath my eyebrow arch but I have been looking for something that will give me more precision and definition. I was inspired by Vivianna Does Makeup when purchasing the eyeliner after reading her blue eyeliner post. I've tried light blue eyeliner in the past and it really doesn't suit me so I picked up this one instead. Although it is named 'Blue Remix' it is more of a metallic teal colour which is just beautiful and will be perfect for Summer. Lastly, I have been really conscious of dark circles under my eyes recently (working too hard and not enough sleep!) so I have been looking for a product which will cover and brighten them at the same time. I came across Diorskin Star Concealer and the lovely lady on the Dior counter popped some on for me while I was in the store. It instantly covered my dark circles, didn't settle in my creases and felt weightless- not cakey in the slightest and I was absolutely sold.
Real Techniques brushes were on 3 for 2 in Superdrug so I obviously had to have some. I have been desperate to try the Miracle Complexion Sponge after reading countless reviews about how you can achieve flawless skin, I really hope it lives up to it's expectations! I purchased the Expert Face Brush as I currently use the buffing brush to apply my foundation and also because it is the only core brush that was missing from my collection. I have been looking for a brush with a dense head so I can get maximum coverage especially when I'm having a bad skin day. The Concealer Brush will work perfectly with my Diorskin as the angle of this brush will fit perfectly in the under eye area.
 
And there we have it! I'm very pleased with all of my new purchases and can't wait to get trying them all out.

Have you tried any of these products? Is there anything that you would like to try too?

  1. I've been using the Real Techniques sponge more now we're in Summer and I've been loving it! Bought the Bourjois highlight pencil a few weeks ago and was really disappointed with it! Hope it works better for you!

  2. I have actually changed from using the expert face brush to the buffing brush for foundation because I found the expert face brush was making it too cakey. I love the expert face brush for cream blusher though! I can't wait to try the concealer brush.

  11. Real techniques brushes are always a good idea!! I haven't tried the concealer brush but I'm tempted to now!! I'm very jealous of your Diorskin as I've been looking at it for the longest time!!

  13. I have also heard wonderful things about this foundation! I am so eager to get onto a liquid foundation because I am so sick of using the bare mineral (although I do love it) I want to mix it up a bit! I also love the real techniques sponge! :) Great post! xx
