Beauty: A Mini High-End Haul



It happened again...

When in Leeds earlier this week, I couldn't resist getting a little bit spendy in Harvey Nichols and Space NK, and inevitably I spent a little bit too much money on things I probably don't need but I SO want in my life.
As soon as I'd left the car park, I made a beeline over to Harvey Nichols and the Charlotte Tilbury counter, AKA my one true love. If you know me well, you'd know I'm CT's biggest fan and I couldn't wait to add more to my growing collection.

My favourite products of hers are definitely the Matte Revolution lipsticks so I picked up another to add to my stash in the shade Bond Girl. I already have Love Liberty (a deep red) and Glastonberry (a berry purple) and they are two of my most worn lipsticks. Everything about them is great - the finish, the formula, the staying power and of course the GORGEOUS rose gold packaging - and the unique square bullet shape makes application so much easier than the norm when you get used to it! Bond Girl looks like the perfect brown nude shade that I've been missing from my collection and I'm so excited to try it out properly but upon first swatch I think it's going to be a match made in heaven.

I couldn't help but make a complete whim of a purchase too and after swatching probably the whole counter on the back of my hand, I decided to take home with me one of the Colour Chameleon eyeshadow pencils in the shade Champagne Diamonds. The whole range of Colour Chameleons is based around what shades are best suited to different eye colours, which I think is a fab concept and there's also a day and night eyeshadow stick for each eye colour - mine being the day time shade for blue eyes. Its a gorgeous shimmery golden shade that applies effortlessly like a dream and I'm so excited to give it a proper try!


It wouldn't be right to visit Leeds and not stop by Space NK and I finally picked up the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel after drooling over it for MONTHS. Every blogger and her dog has heard of this little badboy and I'm so glad I finally took the plunge and added it to my skincare collection. I've used it a couple of times and upon first application I honestly thought I'd wasted my money but after rinsing the gel cleanser off my face, I felt bloody amazing. I can honestly say that my face has never felt so clean and a little goes a long way with this so you only need to use a tiny blob on each application! Definitely worth the investment of nearly £30 as I think this is going to last me a good while to come. It's made from all natural ingredients too so it's truly good for the skin and there's no nasty chemicals hiding in there!


What have bought recently? I'd love some more higher end recommendations for my next shopping trip!
