To start off the week I thought I'd round-up my luxury beauty favourites once again! Right now all these products are just perfection to me and 100% worth buying.
From a product that took 2 years to decide to final buy, to a lovely gift and a perfect new scent that I can't get enough of. Hope I don't enable too much... but at least it's just been payday!
Butter London Nail Foundation
£15.00 - Feel Unique here
This is the item that took a whole two years to finally buy! Why? Well, because it's £15.00! £15.00 may not seem that much but when you have a hoard of base coats that are all pretty good you really can't warrant spending that much on yet another one! But clearly at some point last month I had a weak moment and decided to just buy it. For the past 2 years I'd read endless positive reviews and finally it's in my hands and it's everything I imagined it to be. It truly is nail foundation! The base coat basically gives a totally flawless base to even ridged nails and stops nail polishes staining the nails. This also has the edge on all the other base coats I own as you can apply quite a thick coat of it to the nails, to cover all ridges and imferfections and it still dries and pretty fast at that! So so pleased that I finally decided to splurge a little on this.... just hoping it doesn't go gloopy within a year as you get such a huge amount!
Paco Rabanne Olympea Eau De Parfum 30ml
£40.00 - Escentual here
A new addition to my fragrance collection here and one that is stunning! I'm half temped to suggest to just go and smell this for yourself as it's such a blended scent that it's hard to pick out any specific notes. Though I can tell you it's definitely a feminine floral scent with a salty edge that very sophisticated and unique. It also lasts amazingly well - pretty much all day. I also truly love the bottle of this... though the stunning rose gold edging is sadly only available with the 50ml and 80ml size... this is the 30ml! Since Paco Rabbanne came out with 1 Million for men and Lady Million for women I've been a huge fan of the brand and really think this will be a very popular fragrance. One to certainly have a spray of when out shopping!
Benefit Puff Off Eye Gel
£22.50 - ASOS here
Since reaching my late 20's (oh, how it pains me to type that) I've made eye cream a thing I use in my skincare routine. Though I've discovered the skin even under my eyes is too oily to take a moisturising anti-ageing cream just yet (I develop little spots -eeep!), but a light de-puffing one is all good! Which is why Benefit's Puff Off Eye Cream really floats my boat. Now I'm not sure how well it's keeping the lines at bay but this sure as hell helps my morning puffiness and dark circles I've seemed to develop with age. Of course the little iron shaped applicator is a novelty, however compared to eye creams that use a roller ball where more eye cream comes out as you roll, you simply don't have that problem with the little iron as you squeeze a small amount out as iron away! The metal is certainly cooling and the light reflective eye cream does brighten up the eye area before applying makeup. I've been using this for probably over a year now and still love it!
Tarte Eyeshadow Quad Palette
On to a wonderful palette now that was a Birthday gift from my lovely blogging friend Tanzina (you should definitely check out her blog - Makeup A to Z - I think you will love it!) and also my first ever product from Tarte! I sadly don't have much info on this product as the textured packaging didn't like the label and so therefore I don't know what the palette is called. However I'm pretty sure it was limited edition anyway! But I still wanted to rave about the quality of these eyeshadows as they are just amazing. Unlike the likes of Urban Decay shadows, which I love dearly, these aren't buttery smooth but somehow light and finely milled. I've never experienced this with any other eyeshadow that had great pigmented but somehow Tarte have done it. I also love, love, love the 3 neutral shades in this palette for everyday eyes. I definitely need to seek out more Tarte eyeshadow palettes.
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick - Native
£15.50 - Feel Unique here
Lastly ones of my most favourite lipsticks, EVER - the wonderfully creamy pink nude in the UD Revolution range. This truly is a dream lipstick for me, from the amazing packaging, to the super wearable pink shade for my pale skin and of course the down-right perfect formula that lasts so well on the lips. This really is a lipstick that I've had so much wear from and will always re-purchase now. I just can't get enough of the super creamy texture! LOVE.
Hope you've discovered some new products here!
