What Happens In Harvey Nics...

So obviously it wouldn't have been right for me to let me boyfriend loose in Leeds, without sending him with a little shopping list, right?! I've had my eyes on a few high-end beauty bit for some time now and my other half kindly brought them home for me...

The first thing I had been lusting after for a lifetime was the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow contour palette! Unless you've been hiding in outer-space for the last 6 months, you'll know that every blogger on the planet seems to have this little rose-gold beauty, so I was keen to get my hands on it and see what the fuss was about! Now it's not cheap...£49 to be precise...and it was a little heartbreaking parting with a small fortune for such a small product. But as soon as I opened it, I fell in love instantly. It contains a sculpting contour powder at one side and a shimmery highlighter on the other, and after using it for a week or so, I absolutely love it! It gives my cheekbones fab definition and the highlighter is dreamy. Is it worth £49? Probably not. It's a good enough product, don't get me wrong, but I think the main selling point of this is the packaging. Not going to lie, it looks pretty luxurious on my dressing table!

After getting Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipstick in Glastonberry for Christmas, I've wanted more more more as I love the formula of these - they're matte without being too drying and the colour lasts a lifetime on the lips! (Or a good few hours, that'll do too...)
Last time I visited a CT counter, I had my heart set on getting the colour Love, Liberty but it was sadly sold out so I put it in my shopping list this time around and I was in luck! Inside the gorgeous rose gold packaging is the most gorgeous dark red lipstick...it's probably a very similar colour to the famous Kate Moss 107, which is probably my all-time favourite, so I'm excited to properly try this little baby out!

Of course, I couldn't leave a Harvey Nics haul without a visit the the MAC counter. I don't know how I've been getting by in life with only 2 of their lipsticks, so I was eager to FINALLY get my hands on the ultimate MAC shades - Ruby Woo and Velvet Teddy! Everytime I tried to buy either of these shades, they were both sold out so I'm happy to have them in my modest collection now. They're both a matte finish, which I love and I've probably got my wear out of them both so much already! Ruby Woo is my go to red lipstick now, I can't get enough, and Velvet Teddy is fab for an everyday makeup look. Not sure if I'll be pulling out the 90s lip รก la Kylie Jenner anytime soon, but I'm loving the your-lips-but-better shade!

Have you tried any of these products? Whats on your high-end wishlist?

  1. I drool over this sculpting palette every time I see it! But I only take the time to contour about once a month, because I'm lazy as all get out... so I can't justify spending that much money on it :(

  5. The Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow Palette is just so beautiful! I hate the fact I'd actually pay that for the packaging, Im such a sucker for rose gold! The Love Liberty Lipstick is so going on the wish list now too!
