Recent Beauty Purchases

Over lockdown, I started experimenting a bit more with my make-up. With nowhere to go, I had the time to explore the more neglected products in my collection and give brighter colours and bolder styles a go. One of my favourites was my wearable green eyeshadow look, and a bubblegum pink 80’s inspired creation.

A few months ago, I wrote a post about my beauty wishlist as I was thinking about all the new bits and pieces I wanted to add to my collection. I’ve been slowly working on growing my collection for a while now, and I thought I’d bring all the beauty bits I’ve bought recently together in a post.

IT Cosmetics CC Cream in Light

The was one of the products I included in my recent wishlist. I’d been looking for something a bit lighter to wear on summer days at work – not that I’ve been at work at all this summer as I’ve been working from home! I was hesitant to buy it as it’s so expensive but I’m so glad I did. Review coming soon!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade

This has actually been on my beauty wishlist for around 3 years – it featured on a wishlist post of mine from 2017! My usual eyebrow product ran out recently and I just thought, I’ve wanted it for so long, why not just bite the bullet and get it! It took me a while to get used to at first – less is definitely more with this product – but I’m sold now!

Revolution Loose Baking Powder Translucent

I’ve been wanting to try a loose powder for the longest time; I’ve always gone for pressed powder since I started wearing make-up. I’d heard such good things about the Laura Mercier one but as I wasn’t sure if I’d get on with it, I didn’t want to spend that much to start with and opted for a cheaper alternative. I think I’m only just figuring out how to use it properly so I’ll hold off on the more expensive option until I’ve got that down!

Morphe 18B Makin’ Bank Palette

I actually bought this palette on impulse as it was on sale. I have another Morphe palette that I love and really wanted to add a new one to my collection. I use my other one all the time – and wrote a post about the different make-up looks you can create with it – and I plan to do the same with this one. It has so many unusual colours and I can’t wait to try out the bright turquoise and the yellow!

BH Cosmetics Take Me Back to Brazil Set

BH Cosmetics Sculpt and Blend 10 Piece Brush Set

For years, I’ve been using a mix match of brushes and thought it was about time to just get a full collection once and for all. I thought about getting the James Charles x Morphe collection, but I couldn’t warrant £152 on make up brushes! So, I opted for two different sets from BH Cosmetics on Beauty Bay and I love them! I finally have a brush for everything, and double of a few so I have a spare if one needs cleaning.

Have you tried any of these products? What’s on your current beauty wishlist?

    I haven’t tried any of these products before but I totally feel you on the brushes thing! I so need to invest in a full set because I’m a sucker for just using random ones. I bought a Morphe eye set recently though which has changed the game!
