Hello :)  It has been a very long time since I posted about my recent purchases, so I thought I would do one about what I bought on payday weekend (hurrah!).  I couldn’t let the Boots 3 for 2 offer pass me by, and I also needed (read:wanted) a new foundation so overall it was a successful trip for all involved.  Which was just me, and also my boyfriend who pretty much fainted when he saw how much a little pot of Double Wear cost me.
Autograph at M&S Pure Luxe Highlighter in Golden Rose:  This little beaut will get a whole post to itself with swatches and detailed photos, because it is the prettiest highlighter I have ever seen – I almost don’t want to use it, I’d be happy to just gaze lovingly at it!  This cost £15 at M&S and the quality is uh-mazing. 
Barry M Lip Gloss in LGW12:  I have heard that this gloss isn’t sticky so I’ve bought it because the colour is a gorgeous pale pink and hopefully it won’t glue my hair to my mouth on these blustery days!
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair:  This is a repurchase, we all know how great this concealer is!  I used to find it sunk in to little lines around my eyes, but I find it blends well with a foundation brush, and for spots I usually dab a little on the offender with my finger. 
Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush: I have been eyeing up all of the newest brushes from Real Techniques lately, but I decided to buy the liner brush first because it sounds like the perfect applicator for my gel eyeliner.  I am pretty used to applying it with a small brush but the precision can be off and you can’t always get a clean thin line, so I’m really looking forward to trying this out. 
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation:  This is an old favourite, when in doubt always go back to Double Wear!  The coverage is buildable to full yet has a gorgeous natural finish that in my opinion just cannot be beaten.  A classic that I would recommend to everyone, especially if you are after a foundation with a little more coverage. 
What have you been buying this week? xx
