Haul & First Impressions

Someone needs to start dragging me out to Pilates on a Saturday morning instead of leaving me to my own devices. I popped in to town to get a present for a friend and came home with a whole load of new presents for Suzie. Insert all the heart eye’d emojis here.

After previously having a play around with the Kevyn Aucoin Foundation Brush back in July, I couldn’t hold off any more and threw it out there when the sales assistant asked me if there was anything else I wanted. I’ve been thinking about it more than a healthy amount, so it had to happen. I’d also held of picking up Nars Sheer Glow and the Doucer blush for about three years now – basically since I started blogging, so I couldn’t really say no to them either.  And then we have the whole mini Whistles and Boots haul thrown in for good measure. Same time next month, yeah? Pah, maybe not – I don’t think any of our bank balances are equipped for that!

    love the blush with the foundation! i have the foundation but with the brush I use it appears cakey on my face, do you have any recommendations as a cheaper alternative brush to apply it with?

    I think the NARS Sheer Glow would look nicer if you applied only a sheer layer (I have never used it so don't take me word) because I've heard it's a heavier coverage foundation and I think your skin is too nice to COMPLETELY cover it. 🙂

    I love the Whistles t-shirt!

  38. 14 Aug 2014 / 4:33 pm
