Recent Purchases #1

I went shopping recently and thought I'd show you my picks! Most of this was on sale or quite cheap so it's super affordable!


I bought three foundations, yes I do know that I don't really need that many but it'll last me a long time and I really wanted to purchase these, plus they were on sale so I couldn't really say no, right?! I bought L'Oreal True Match Foundation and so far am pleased with it! It retails for £9.99 but only cost me £7 as Boots was doing 2 for £14 on L'Oreal products; my sister (link) bought something too and reviewed it here. I originally bought only Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Nude Foundation but ended up buying Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation too. These both retail for £7.99 but were on offer so only cost £4.99 so was a bargain!


From Topshop I bought their Lip and Cheek Stain in Bitten Berry which only cost a pound!! It originally costs £7 but was priced down and I have been using this non-stop since I bought it. I also bought Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in 1995 and in Cherry Cordial, I did a review of the latter here. (silly me forgot to photograph Cherry Cordial, sorry) 1995 is super matte and drying, whereas Cherry Cordial is a satin finish so feels more comfortable. These costs around £9 each with promo codes.


I picked up a Makeup Revolution Blush in Love which is the perfect blush shade for my skin tone. It's really subtle so it's perfect for me. This cost only £1. Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge was one I bought for Beauty With Hajrah 's birthday. It only costs £5.99 and thought to buy myself one too. As you can see from the picture, it's already been used because I was super excited to use it. I will be doing a review for this soon in the near future. I originally bought the Makeup Revolution Focus and Fix Kit only so I could use the wax, but I've started using the other shades and they work so well with my eyebrow shade. There isn't much fall out either.

    1. It has a really think consistency much thinner than I was hoping for but I still think it's quite good. Most drugstore products are quite good!x
