HIGH END & DRUGSTORE BEAUTY HAUL


After a small blogging break, I'm back with a good old haul.  I've definitely got to be stricter with myself in future though, and the main reason for stepping back from blogging and social media last week was because I was busy budgeting and trying to sort out money and savings etc with my boyfriend.  We have holidays etc to save for this year so I really need to have more self control when it comes to buying make up, and so this haul may well be the last for a while - sob.  

The bargain of the week goes to this beaut Make Up Revolution palette in Affirmation.  32 mainly nude shades for £8, and they are really good quality too!  I haven't tried many of the shades yet, but the few that I have are decently pigmented and have little fallout so that's good enough for me.  
I reviewed the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolors in my last post, but I picked up three shades in Superdrug on the 3 for 2 offer and I love them.  The are super cute, the colours are amazing and they feel like a much more expensive product than they are.
I was running low on my favourite Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation, so I've repurchased it in the shade Cream Ivory which is a perfect match for my skin.  I always rave about this base so I won't go on about it again here, but it really is worth the money and if you want good coverage but a light formula, then this is definitely for you.  
I was also on the lookout for a new concealer, and after seeing so many good reviews of the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer I decided to give it a go myself.  So far I'm really impressed and it is pretty similar to my usual Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer, except I'd say this one is more light-reflecting which is definitely a good thing.  It does a good job of hiding my awful dark circles and is pretty good for blemishes too.  
Finally, I rarely go to Boots without picking up something from Barry M, and this time was no different.  I picked up one of the new Mani Mask nail polishes in the shade Birthday Suit, and a clear topcoat.  The Mani Mask polish is perfect for a natural french mani look, and it makes my nails look a lot better than they actually are somehow, so I've been wearing it everyday along with the topcoat for work.  

I love it when everything I buy turns out to be worth it, this is by far the best bunch of products that I've bought in a while!  
What have you been buying lately?  Do you have any of these products? xx
