Recent Beauty Buys.

As you may/may not have gathered, I’m not a big ‘beauty’ person. I keep my makeup to a minimum and when choosing makeup/colours, I stay natural.

After watching and reading a few bloggers ‘Best Beauty Buys of 2012’ I decided it was time to take the plunge and buy into a few products and give them a try.

So, here’s a little post on my recent beauty buys:

  • MAC – Prep & Prime – I had mixed feelings towards Benefits Porefessional and ended up stopping using it. But after reading so many people rave about using a primer that I thought I should give another a go.
  • MAC – Pro Longwear Concealer – Again, I currently use Benefits Erase Paste and although I have no problem with it, I thought I’d try something new.
  • Clinique – Bottom Lash Mascara – I can honestly say I didn’t know there was such a thing, there I was experimenting with using mascara on my bottom lashes, ending up with under eye smudges, then I watch a Tanya Burr VBlog and find out about this!

On my ‘next to purchase’ list, there is:

  • either the MAC Studio Fix Fluid or
  • NARS Sheer Matte foundation or
  • Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
  • NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
  • Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint
  • REN Skincare
  • Makeup brushes – MAC?
  • Hair straighteners – CloudNine? (beauty product?..)

I’m still on the lookout for an eyebrow pencil/pen. I used to use the HD one but found it quite dark. So have been trying the MAC eyebrow pencil, but still not 100% happy. So any recommendations would be greatly appreciated and will definitely feature in another recent beauty buys post!
