What I've been buying lately | New Purchases

In this post I thought I'd share a few things that I have been after for a few months and eventually given in and purchased as well as some essentials and others are just treats.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion
It's no shock that I have repurchased another product from The Body Shops' Tea Tree line after I have fallen in love with their foaming cleanser and Pore Minimiser I thought it was about time I tried another product from their line. This product is dispensed by pump and is a sort of serum/gel product. You are encouraged to apply it to your face and neck every evening before bed primarily on the areas which are prone to blemishes. The gel is aimed at fading/minimising the appearance of post-blemish marks and discolouration of the skin to give you clearer looking skin. I have yet to try this product but if its anything like the other products in the line I am going to love it.

Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Sculpting Kit in 'Medium Brown'
I'd been using Maybelline's Brow Satin for a while but got sick of it snapping after a few uses so when I went to Boots to look for something else, I came across this Wax and Powder combination. The little set it so handy and small. It contains a little square of wax and another of brown powder. It also contains two little brushes, one for defining the brows and another to blend. It's something a little bit different for me as I am used to pencils so hopefully I'll fall in love with powder brows.

MAC Lip liner in 'Soar'
Also known as 'The Kylie Jenner Lip', MAC's Lip liner in 'Soar'  has been one of this year's most popular products and has constantly been out of stock but luckily just by chance it had just been re-stocked in Bath. I knew it was time to purchase it before it sold out again. I can see why this is such a sort-after liner. It's a lovely soft rose/nude colour and like I have said before, MAC lip liners are very creamy which makes them a dream to apply and they don't dry out your lips. This liner would be an ideal shade for a matte look applied over the entire lip or as a base colour for another lipstick.

MAC Lipstick in 'Crosswires'
I have previously wrote a blog post specifically about this lipstick so I won't go into much detail. However, it is a beautiful pink/orange colour lipstick (it's hard to describe), and it is a cremesheen formula so it isn't too glossy but provides great colour pay off and like all MAC lipsticks last a heck of a long time. Definitely a must have if your flying off on holiday this summer and need a new lippy for those warm summer evenings.

 MAC x4 Eyeshadow Pro Palette and pan Eyeshadow in 'Naked Lunch'
I had previously bought a pro pan eyeshadow in the 'All That Glitters' with the intention of building up my own eyeshadow quad, so when I popped into MAC in Bath last weekend I took the opportunity to buy the palette which fits 4 eyeshadows inside. I also wanted to buy a shade that was similar to Naked 2 Palette's 'Bootycall' shade - a shade I have nearly used up as I love it for an all over the lid shade. The lovely girl in MAC showed me a few colours and recommended a lovely light beige shimmer shade called 'Naked Lunch'. I have been absolutely loving this shade since I bought it and I aim to buy a browny, taupe colour next to add to my palette.
