I definitely treated myself, probably a bit too much, during the Black Friday weekend sales! I got beauty bits from feelunique.com and beautybay.com (which haven’t arrived yet sadly), as well as one beauty thing from Amazon. Every thing I bought here is from cruelty free brands in line with my aim to go cruelty free.
Everything I got from feelunique was from a brand I’d never tried before; how exciting!
I got this to use as a setting powder on top of foundation as my current one is running out. I’m excited to try it, however I am slightly worried it’s a bit sparkly, but hopefully that will translate as a glow on the skin.
This cleanser is so raved about and a favourite of many like Zoella and Caroline Hirons, so naturally I really wanted to try it. Cleansers are one of my favourite new things to try for some reason! I definitely didn’t want to splash out on a full size so this 15ml pot was perfect to give it a try. I’ve used it once already and it’s lovely, not sure I would ever pay the full price for this or any cleanser, but I sure am going to enjoy using it. It’s a perfect size for travelling in luxury.
(Edit: Upon further use, I frickin love this stuff! Why’s it have to be so expensive 🙁 It’s beautiful).
While I was trying to find excuses to buy things, I thought how I don’t have a nude coloured eye liner to line my waterline! Shocking. So I got this, with the idea of it brightening my eyes and neutralising any redness. It’s good.
Black Friday was the PERFECT excuse for me to buy the much hyped about Mary Lou-manizer. I haven’t used it yet but it’s beautiful; I love the packaging. theBalm are such a cool brand and I am sure I’ll enjoy using this.
I think I am going to love this! I haven’t used it yet but if I like it I can see myself buying so many colours. I’m such a matte lip girl, I really don’t like lipgloss. I love all lipsticks, but gloss just doesn’t excite me. This colour was not my first choice, I naturally gravitated towards the nudes but all my faves were sold out so I thought I’d just go for it and go bold! I’ll report back.
I think I should’ve gone for the shade Porcelain instead as this one seems too dark and orange for me! However I’m always open to trying new affordable cruelty free concealers so we’ll see how we go. I tried it yesterday and initially impressions were not the best, however I think that’s a lot to do with the colour. Coverage was medium.
I wanted to get the brow pomade but unfortunately it was out of stock. So I thought I’d get this one to compare with Soap and Glory’s Archery pencil as they look very similar! I go through brow pencils fairly quickly so I don’t mind having a few in my stash as back up. I usually like to finish things before buying something new. So far so good, it’s so similar to Archery!
Amazon have some great deals on Real Techniques at the moment! I wanted to get this one as a dedicated highlighter brush as I didn’t have one; I was just using an eyeshadow one. It’s the perfect shape for highlighting them cheekbones!
There’ll possibly be a few other Black Friday posts, like the beautybay.com order which has yet to arrive. Hopefully I’ll be able to do some outfit posts soon, clothes are as much if not more of a passion for me than beauty, but showing them is so much more difficult 🙁 I’ll try.
