CURRENTLY COVETING: COSMETICS

Recently I've become a lot more "in to" make up than I ever have been and I just keep buying stuff all the time. I blame the likes of Boots and Superdrug for 3 for 2 offers. You can hardly say no to that! (Superdrug are currently 3 for 2 on all make up and lashes, by the way!) So right now I'm lusting after quite a number of things but I'm very penny-less at the moment so I may have to hold out until payday for most of this.


MAC Diva, Lady Bug & Girl About Town | Topshop Crescent Moon Highlighter | Revlon lipstick in Black Cherry | Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple | Real Techniques Buffing Brush | Sleek Blush in Rose Gold | Models Own in Bare Beauty | MUA lip liner | Katy Perry "Oh Honey!" lashes | Nivea Express Hydration Primer


So, just one or two things there then...

As you can probably guess from that, I like lipstick. I have one MAC lipstick (Impassioned) and I love it so much and I really want more now. I think Diva is definitely the one I most want, though it does look quite similar to Topshop's Beguilded (which I already own). And I've read so many great things about Revlon lip products, I actually bought a matte lipstick of theirs in "Really Red" and it lasts so long so I'm impressed. I was going to buy the Black Cherry one but they didn't have any left, boo! The lip butters are hugely raved about everywhere too so I'm going to have to hope Superdrug's 3 for 2 is on for a couple more weeks.
Lip pencils is something I've been buying this last week too. I've bought a red and berry coloured one but most of my lipsticks are pink so it's probably a bit silly not to own a pink one!

The Topshop highlighter and Sleek blush are another two items that I'm jumping on the bandwagon about. I love the highlighter that is in the Sleek Contour Kit and I've read too many good things about Topshop highlighters so I really want to see what the fuss is about.
The Sleek blush... well the colour looks too nice in all the swatches I've seen and it looks perfect for Autumn/Winter. Unfortunately, my local Superdrug don't stock Sleek so I'll have to venture out to get it.

I made an order with Models Own when they did their half price summer sale and this was sold out then but I really want a nice nude polish because I don't have any and nude nails look so classy on everyone. I will have to invest!

Always wanted to try false eyelashes but I never have. I think I'm slightly afraid of the glue (I have a weird phobia thing with glue) and also about ruining my own lashes. Then Katy Perry released her range and that made me want to try them even more. Think I'm going to just go for it when we have our Christmas Do for work, eek!

The primer and make up brush aren't really cosmetics but they sort of fit in. I keep seeing the advert for the Nivea primer and I'm very intrigued. I think they say it's a moisturiser and also a primer which I can only see as time saving in a morning when I'm half asleep trying to make myself look like I'm bright and awake! And I do like Nivea products so I think it will be a good buy.
Then the Real Techniques brush is just another jump on the bandwagon thing. The buffing brush comes in the Core Collection and it's on sale on Amazon at the moment so I'm very tempted. Everyone raves this brush so much and I want to know why!



Just want to say a huge thank you to you all for following my blog. I hit 100 followers yesterday! So thrilled! That's more in just less than 2 months than the entire time I had my blog open the first time round.
