It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman’s entire makeup supply will run out at the most inconvenient of times, and all at once. Using the smallest of smudges of foundation and driest dregs of concealer to create a flawless face, really should be a talent on my CV!
As I entered Boots on Cardiff Queen Street, I couldn’t help feel a little excited. I hadn’t bought makeup for ages so this was a chance to really treat myself! After about 20 minutes of bustling through the crowds of Christmas shoppers, I managed to bag myself these beauties:
- Natural Collection Brow Kit:
Now am I a newbie when it comes to the brow game. I don’t spend more than 2 minutes on them and they by no means belong on the cover of vogue. I opt for a super cheap gem from Boots’s Natural Collection. It’s cute, compact and perfect for my limited brow filling ability.
- Ecotools Brow Shaping Duo:
Because I like to kid myself into feeling like a makeup guru (and the brushes in the brow kit are obviously made for people with tiny hands) I HAD to pick up these brow brushes from Ecotools. They are beautiful!
- Collection Primed & Ready Illuminating Witch Primer
A perfect face needs a perfect base. My favourite is Collection’s Illuminating Primer – smoothing and hydrating, it is the best primer I have found for the price. As someone with dry skin, I used to shed out fortunes on fancy “hydrating” primers, but they never made my skin feel quite like this one!
- L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24hr Foundation
This is hands down, my favourite foundation ever. This is my 4th bottle! It is brilliant for those with ghost-like complexions (like myself) and it is super hydrating too. It was a massive blow to my bank account, but for a foundation like this, I don’t mind splashing the cash a bit. By splashing the cash, I mean £10.99.
- Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
I think I can speak for the whole female population when I say that this is a makeup must-have. There can be no words for this concealer, other than, if you haven’t bought it, do so now: Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
- Natural Collection Mono Eyeshadow
With half a kidney’s worth of makeup already in my basket, I thought I may as well treat myself to something completely unnecessary. At only £1.99 it was an absolute steal.
Buy it here!
With my handbag slightly heavier, and my bank account significantly emptier, I can rest easy for the next 6 months… before having to do it all over again. Hopefully you guys can get some of this stuff a bit cheaper in the January sales!
