Over the past few weeks I’ve purchased a few items here and there that I thought you might want to see, well even if you don’t I’m going to show you anyway. So, I’ve been preparing for freshers and thought I’d pick up a few clothing items for the Autumn season and I decided to grab a few beauty items as well.
I decided to grab myself a few new makeup brushes. I’m rather lazy when it comes to washing my brushes so I bought extra ones for when I’m extra lazy and don’t wash them when I should. I picked up the Real Techniques Flawless Base Set from Boots for £10.99, it was half price which is fantastic. Comes with 4 brushes which include the buffing brush, contour brush, square foundation brush and the small detail brush. I’m an avid fan of the Real Techniques brushes and I do always try and pick up them when they’re on sale. I especially like this set because it comes with the brush cup which is ideal to store your brushes in! You can pick them up from Amazon as well at discounted pricing which is fantastic.
Their brushes are excellent quality for drugstore pricing and I love that they have introduced more expensive brushes such as the bold metals brushes. The brushes are always so soft, they blend products like a dream and they clean brilliantly. What more could you want?
I also picked up some eye shadow brushes from Amazon, they were at a bargain at £3 for 12 brushes. They were recommended amongst the blogging community for the fact that they are crazy affordable and they are so fluffy, soft and the quality is fairly decent for the price. I honestly thought they were going to be a sham and awful but honestly, they’re decent and do the job well. Bargain buy of the year I think.
I was having a little look in New Look and I come across a suede biker jacket and fell totally in love with it. However, I didn’t buy it for weeks because 1. I didn’t know if I would ever wear it and 2. Not knowing how to style it. So, when I come across it again on the website I bit the bullet an bought it anyway because well, treat yo’self ladies.
So like I said, it’s a suede biker jacket in the colour stone. It’s more of a beige tone and I’m not gonna lie, I love it. I’ve had leather jackets in the past but I never wore them because I always felt like I looked odd in it, so I donated it to charity. I personally don’t think I look nice in leather and I feel strange and I feel so much better in the suede jacket. I find that I can match it with so many outfits (Pinterest is my go-to for style inspo). I paid £39.99 and it’s perfect for nights out and day looks during the autumn and winter months.
I needed some new trainers to head back to uni in and I went ahead and purchased a new pair of low top converse. I love converse for nights out or even day wear, they’re such fashionable and practical shoes that last such a long time. I’ve had my last pair for around 3 years now before they separated at the bottom. If you really look after them they’re fantastic and will last you a long time. I got them in white and I’m feeling quite brave with them. I’m really hoping I can keep these ones clean!
I visited Carmarthen during August and got very excited to see that my new little town has a Lush store! So obviously I went in and treated myself to some bath bombs. I purchased my all time favourite, I Kyle baby bot bath bomb, this is my favourite ever and whenever I have a bath in it I just feel so much softer and more relaxed. I went with the rocket science bath bomb and it’s made my skin feel so incredibly soft and fresh. It also really helped to relax me and make me feel so happy and healthy minded.
I also bought some basic black skinny jeans because when can ever have too many, right? These were £9 from primark and they sit lovely.
I went ahead to Superdrug during the 3 for 2 offer and bought several little bits to add to my collection. The Collection lasting perfection concealer is an all time favourite and for £4.19 you can’t go wrong! It’s got full coverage and such a lovely colour to highlight the under eyes.
I also repurchased the Collection contour stick in shade 1, this was also around £4 and it’s the perfect grey toned shade to contour the cheek bones with. The consistency is lovely and it’s so blendable, it’s easy to built as well which is what I love the most about it.
Lastly, I had my eye on the new Rimmel liquid lipsticks and I bought mine in the coral shade. These are £5.99 and I’ve heard nothing but good things about them. I honestly feel like this lipstick was the best purchase of all. It’s so creamy when applied and it’s so lightweight which makes it an absolute dream to wear. Lovely colour and the formula is right up there with some of the best.
With love, Beth x
