Whilst I’ve been on a low buy lately where I’ve tried to purchase only things I really need; in September I got myself a few treats. So here’s a look at what I got.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer in 4 Fair
I’ve never had much luck with Charlotte Tilbury makeup before, but recently I had my makeup done by them in Selfridges and loved the look of some of the makeup.
I tend to go for a darker under eye concealer, as too light makes me look tired. In store this looked great on and so far it is working well for me, but in natural daylight it is a bit lighter than I expected.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in 2 Medium
Whilst having my makeup done I was super surprised that they used the medium shade on me; but in store my skin looked flawless and the powder looked pretty fair when I swatched it.
Since I’ve used this at home it’s sadly too dark and tends to oxidise even darker. I’ve since purchased the lightest shade online, as the powder itself seems good.
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush in Ecstasy
The product I’ve got on best with is this beautiful, peachy pink blush. It’s such a soft and gorgeous shade, but it can easily be built up.
Charlotte Tilbury Revolutionary Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask
I’ve used plenty of sheet masks, but I’ve never tried a dry, reusable one. This mask promises to brighten, hydrate, lift and smooth skin, so I can’t wait to try it.
A’PIEU Coconut Milk One Pack-Moisturising
Whilst in Selfridges I picked up a few other bits, such as this face mask. I tried the A’PIEU Banana Milk Mask a while back and liked it, so I decided to try another from the same range.
NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Hydramax Knit Mask
This is another mask I’ve tried before and really enjoyed. It’s made from a thick, bandage type material and is really great at hydrating skin.
MAGICSTRIPES Wake Me Up Collagen Eye Patches
MAGICSTRIPES is a brand I’ve never tried, but I’m a big fan of under eye patches and masks. As well as cooling and reviving under eyes, these patches promise to hydrate, smooth fine lines and improve skin elasticity.
Missha Paraffin Heating Hand and Foot Mask
Missha is a new brand to me and I liked the ideal of a self heating hand and foot mask, but sadly both were disappointing.
The foot mask heated up better than the hand one, but neither was as I expected. I also feel like my hands and feet are even drier since using these.
Soap & Glory Call of Fruity Bubble in Paradise Refreshing Shower Gel & Call of Fruity Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream
I saw this new Call of Fruity range in Boots and I absolutely love the mango and mandarin scent of these products!
I’m surprised this range has been released after summer, but I love a summery, fruity scent.
Whiskey & Ginger Pumpkin Spice Candle
Whiskey & Ginger is a small business that I stumbled upon at a vegan fair last month. Set up by a single parent who wanted a job that could fit around raising her young child, she started her own vegan, eco-friendly company.
This candle has a beautiful spicy scent that’s different to any other pumpkin candles I’ve tried. I also love that it has a wooden wick, which helps the candle burn more evenly.
So that’s everything I got. Let me know what your favourite items are.
