August High End & High Street Beauty Buys

High street high-end haul

It was my birthday in August, so I may have treated myself to the odd nice item this month and a tiny spurge.  Obviously because it was my birthday, while I was in Dublin  I did pick up a few items that you can’t pick up in the UK.    I repurchased my Botanics Cleansing Toner* and Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Toner.   I decided to try out the Nivea Extra Gentle Eye Make-up Remover again, the jury is out.  Most of my skin care decided to run out at once, so I decided to treat myself.

 I’ve a few lip products from L’Oreal! Two Infallible Mega Glosses, a cream formula pink nude in Protest Queen and a bright orange matte in Raspoutine-Me, and a Color Riche Exclusive Reds* lipstick in Blake.  I popped into SpaceNK and picked up the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm*, which I utterly love and I’ve wanted to repurchase for a while.  I’ve had my eye on the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel for a while, so that was the added birthday treat…so far I’m loving it!  From Aussie hair care I bought the travel sized Miracle Moist Shampoo & 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor conditioner, both have worked wonders for my damaged hair.

I was utterly delighted to come home the other week to this parcel from Roots & Rituals containing the Heated Towel! I got to try the Hair Oil & Deep Conditioner after meeting her at the Blogger London Fashion Week Event earlier this year and love both of those.  So I cannot wait to try this out, I’m going to have a proper pamper session this bank holiday weekend!   Now on to the bits I picked up while I was in Dublin.

 I’m hoping I’ve found a cheaper alternative to the mac brush cleanser with the P.S Love This Makeup Brush Cleanser from Pennys (Primark).  Fingers crossed! I had to pick up the classic Petal Pusher Eyeshadow Palette* from Wet n Wild and fancied the look of the essence matt touch blush in berry me up.  I was delighted to find a relatively well stocked Catrice stand so bought a few things.  The Nude Illusion foundation in Nude Ivory, an Illuminating Blush in Coral Me Baby and two exciting eyeshadow products.  The Absolute Matte eyeshadow palette and the Mauves Like Jagger Liquid Metal eyeshadow single.  I’ve already been testing out the palette, so far so good!

I cannot wait to do a look with all these rather fabulous products!  I did swatch the lip products in the video
