First Purchases of 2013


My first purchase of 2013 was actually party food for New Years Day (sesame seed prawn toast anyone?). But rather than photograph half eaten party food I thought I would photograph what arrived this morning which I am classing as my '1st purchases of 2013'. 

I only did a little online shopping after Christmas as I wanted to go actual shopping and spend some vouchers I received for Christmas (Christmas gifts post coming tomorrow btw). But I still haven't made the time to go shopping yet?!?! 


Laura Mercier Cool Classics for Eyes 
£20.00 (Harrods - here)

My first ever Laure Mercier makeup purchase! I actually got this in the Space NK sale with free delivery for only £10, however it is sadly now all sold out. Though I have found it still online on the Harrods website for £20 which I still feel is a good price for this palette. 
The 3 - well custom palette contains 3 full size products - Sateen Eye Colour: Sparkling Dew, Luster Eye Colour: Rosewood, Tightline Cake Eye Liner: Violet Asphalt.

If this was just a 3 eyeshadow palette I really don't think I would have gone for it but the cake eye liner really swayed me as I love powder eyeliners and felt I needed to branch out from my usual brown and black shades I rely on. However from swatching the two eyeshadows they couldn't be more perfect for me as these are the exact nuetral shades I go for. I really think I will get a lot of use out of this palette and know it will be great for travelling with.


Models Own ASOS Exclusive Nail Polish - Party Pieces 
£5.00 (ASOS - here)
This wasn't in the sale as it is a brand new exclusive ASOS Models Own nail polish but I had to get it as soon as I spotted it. I am so in love with Models Own glitters that I knew this would be a good one. 

This glitter is amazingly similar to OPI Rainbow Connection and the cheaper Technic Carnival however I would actually say I like this more as it's a lot more vivid; with more green and pink pieces of glitter - really amazing on the nails. This I know will look great over nude and black nail polishes and I cannot wait to try it over a new-ish nail polish I have - Revlon Bare Bones (a purchase because of Essie Button). Of course actual nail swatches to come very soon!

Hope you all have a wonderful year ahead and thank you sooooooooooo much for reading Makeup Savvy, it really does mean a lot. 

Fee xo.
