This past month I have been trying not to spend so much. With Boxing Day soon approaching, there are some things that I want to get my hands on but I know they will be on sale, so why not save a few pennies?! That being said, I only purchase a few beauty items, and whilst some are not very interesting I still thought I would share them with you all.
First up is a repurchased of the MAC Complete Comfort Cream. This has soon become my ultimate favourite moisturiser. If you have dry skin then I highly recommend trying this out. I have posted a separate and more detailed post here if you want to read about it, in more detail. When I brought this, I also picked up the TooFaced Long-lasting Nude lipstick set. It contains two deluxe samples of the Melted lipstick in melted nude and the Love Flush blush in love hangover. Whilst the blush reminds me of the NARS Orgasm blush, the melted lipstick was the one that I was looking forward to trying. It is peachy nude shade and unlike other liquid lipsticks I've tried, this did not dry out my lips. I'm definitely going to check out other shades in the range because it wore so well.
I mentioned in my Round Up for November, that I picked up the new Anastasia Bev. Hills Self Made palette. When I first saw this, I was not completely sold but all that changed when it sold out on CultBeauty and I HAD to have it. I managed to get my hands on it and I'm so glad I picked it up. It contains 14 shades, whereas the previous ABH palettes have 12, and they are all very much different to anything I already have. The shades Blush, Isla and Sherbert are stunning and I cannot wait to wear them.
A cult favourite in the beauty community is the PIXI Glow Tonic, I decided to pick it up when ASOS had 20% off for students and I can see what people are talking about now. It really does cleanse your skin and any 'under the skin bumps' I had, are now gone. I noticed that when I did try it, I did break out (a lot) so because of that, I've stopped using it for the last week. I don't know if that's because it is working or I reacted pretty badly to it. I'm going to try it again soon and I will have a full review soon.
