I have been buying a few beauty essentials and the odd indulgence this past couple of months.
Here they are and why i repurchased or bought them to try out.
Guerlain Multi Perfection Concealer Hydrating and Blurring Effect. 04 Medium Cool.
Guerlain recently released their new Lingerie de Peau foundation, which is much lighter in texture and lovely on the skin.
Along with the foundation, they also released the multi perfection concealer. It is beautifully creamy and works really well on dark circles as well as redness and small blemishes. It does soften and hydrate and blurs out fine lines too. A very nice concealer for the maturing skin.

I also like the fact that it comes in a squeezy tube because this enables you to control the amount which is dispensed.
There is very little else to say about good concealers really.
Pixi Lower Lash Mascara.
I bought this because i like the look of the brush and thought it would be quick to use with minimal smudging. It doesn’t smudge which is great news. It’s also waterproof. The bad news is, it takes an age to capture every lash.
In the morning, i have very little time to play with. (Who has!) This would eventually drive me mad and; it doesn’t give my lower lashes any real definition where other mascaras do.

Having said all that, it is a nice mascara and at £11.00, i’m not going to moan too much. I won’t repurchase though.
Bobbi Brown Sequin Eyeshadow. Silvered Heather. (Wine & Chocolate Collection).
I loved this eyeshadow as soon as i laid eyes on it. I like all the shades in this collection and they are selling out super fast.
This one is a high sparkling silvered lilac shade. It works realy well pressed over the BB cool lilac and pink stone eyeshadows. The Silver Heather looks very similar to Silvered Lilac, (released a couple of years ago).

As you can see silver heather is a much warmer tone and great over laying the cool lilac.
Dior New Look Mascara. 090 Black.
It never fails to impress. I have bought this mascara a number of times and hadn’t bought it in a while so, i repurchased.
It is fantastic at capturing every single lash quickly with it’s unique and small brush head. (Unlike the Pixi one).
I love the formula too. It isn’t wet or heavy; lifting and curling my eyelashes while keeps them there.
The only thing it doesn’t do it thicken and it can smudge a bit too.
Sadly, there is no waterproof version so, i use this as my first coat mascara underneath the Dior Extase, which gives great thick lashes everytime with no smudging. A perfect combo.
Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil. 30 Brun Naturel.
Another repurchase. I just love this eyebrow pencil. It really is perfect with my natural shade of colour. It gives great definition while remaining very natural in shade, avoiding that harsh almost ‘scouse brow’, which i hate. It also sets and stays in place because it’s not a chalk or a khol pencil.
Best brow pencil out there. I use the Dior chalk brow pencil when i want darker brows for a more dramatic look.
L’Oreal Techni. Art Volume Lift Root Lift Spray Mousse. Volume 3.
I never used to bother with hair mousses at all until my current hairdresser started using them on my hair.
I love this because it’s a mousse spray rather than a big fluffy mousse. This means you can direct it exactly where you want the volume.
It does work really well at lifting and holding the hair. I would say slightly less so than my Kérastase Densimorphose mousse; however, the prices are very different too. The latter is quite expensive and i don’t use that one for work.
I got this at a great price on Amazon and you get loads of product too. Use sparingly because it can get sticky if you put too much on. A great find.
These are some of my recent beauty purchases worth giving a mention to. I hope this was helpful to you.
Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
