For me the first pay day of 2013 rolls around on monday, and in anticipation of finally having bit of extra cash I have been compiling a mental list of a few new bits and bobs. For once its not clothes I am obsessing over. I find myself getting more and more excited about makeup these days.
I for one did not see this coming. Up until about 2 years ago I wasn't remotely interested in beauty products. I owned a couple of mascaras, a bronzer, one concealer and one eyeliner and only replaced them when they were used up. Then I stumbled onto the world of Youtube beauty videos and I have been in free fall ever since.
A lot of these products have come on recommendation from blogs or beauty vloggers. The only one which I already own is the Alpha H Liquid Gold. Mine ran out this week and I have been counting down to pay day purely so I can repurchase it. They don't come cheap but I really think it is worth it. I also have been reading lots of reviews of the Liquid Gold Intensive Night Repair Serum. I have never tried it but seeing as I love the regular Liquid Gold so much this one really stood out to me.
The real techniques brushes are really no surprise as everybody and their dog has a set. I am very late to this party, I do not own even one of these brushes! I feel this needs to change.
Through the joys of the internet I have also had my eye on some beauty bits from America. Firstly the O.P.I Skyfall collection has been on my watch list on eBay ever since its release. Not really only available in the US but I will only buy nail brands such as O.P.I and China Glaze (my favourite) from american sellers as the sell it at such a vast discount. Think £2-5 a bottle instead of the usual £11 in the UK. The shade shown above is 'The World is Not Enough'.
To finish things off are two products I definitely do not need more of. The first being an eyeshadow palette, which I love to look at but in practice barely use. And a highlighter, which I use daily but have far too many of already. The Wet n Wild palette (in 'Comfort Zone') is available on BeautyJoint which is an american site thats ships to the UK and The Balm Mary-Lou-Manizer Highlighter is on Amazon.
I know I wont be able to purchase all of these and common sense will prevail in the end but it doesn't stop me adding them all to my online basket.
Please someone stop me clicking 'buy'.
