My recent little haul.

By | January 15, 2012

Hi all my lovely ladies. Hope you’re all having a good weekend. At the end of last year I ended up splurging on some bits & bobs which I thought I’d share with you. They were mostly lip products (yes, I’m a full blown addict of them!) but there’s a couple of eye products too.

Clarins Lip Perfector 01 & 03 £15 each

I got these from John Lewis when there was a 20% event one weekend. I had heard good things about these & because of the discount I thought I’d get myself two; a pink & nude. They are Clarins Lip Perfectors. I’d say they are more of a tinted gloss than a balm as they are slightly sticky – but not in a bad way. I love the way they leave my lips feeling soft with a hint of tint. The slanted, spongy applicator is quite amazing, too. If you don’t mind spending more on a tinted lip product, these are VERY good!

You can probably see a PINK theme going with the lip products. I’m not going to bang on about how amazing the OCC Lip Tars are but you can read about them HERE or HERE.

Tom Ford Lipstick £36

Now onto this little lipstick bullet of HEAVEN! This was a leaving present from my old job – they know me too well! (P.S – I miss you, team!!) I had been lusting for one of these for months & when ‘Wild Ginger’ landed in my lap I couldn’t wait to try it. I officially want to own them all. They are so incredibly, luxurious, creamy & smooth with a glossy & lasting finish… These have officially beat my love for YSL Rouge Voluptes!

Here’s what it looks like on. AMAZING colour, one that I’ve wanted for a while. It definitely hit the nail on the head. I’d just like to add that this is without a gloss on top! There is a hefty price tag of £36 with this lipstick & you don’t get much of it… Something which I’m still trying to tell my self is ‘OK’ :oops:

YSL Touche Éclat 01 £25

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the wonder of YSL’s Touche Éclat. After debating whether or not to get this, I took advantage of the 20% discount that was in store & got it. It’s lovely & light for my under eyes – PERFECT for everyday wear! I find that it creases slightly on me throughout the day though.

Not only does this brighten my eyes but I love using this to highlight – my brows more than cheekbones. It looks GREAT in pictures too :)

YSL Shocking Mascara £23

 I promise you I didn’t go to the YSL counter to get this but as soon as I saw it I had to get my hands on it. I am a SUCKER for all YSL packaging… Well, packaging in general. I’ve never tried YSL mascaras so seeing as this is their newly launched, I went with this. However, I have had heard good things about YSL Faux Cils.

The wand isn’t anything special & usually gets a lot of product on it. I find it works best with lots of mascara on rather than scraping it off into the tube. One thing I do have to point out it that they have put PERFUME into this & it smells so nice & refreshing! I wish all mascara’s did that.

This is what it looks like on. I does WONDERS to the length of my lashes. It doesn’t leave them crispy or feeling hard – they feel perfect & quite natural looking! I love how it separates my lashes as well. I wouldn’t say it’s as good (in terms of shocking) as my They’re Real by Benefit but it’s much easier to remove it off at night. I’ve also got Touche Éclat on under my eyes. As you can see, it really brightens up the under-eye area really well.

I have been using a lot of these products from this haul on a daily basis for about a month. I’ve gotta say, I love discovering new products!
