Recent Purchases: Mac, Chanel, Laura Mercier

IMG_6878 After getting rid of some of my makeup stash in a recent blog sale, i finally made room for new purchases. Its the start of a new year, so no better time for a new face isn’t it?

Laura Mercier Travel Size Brush Kit

IMG_6880

IMG_6882 Although i enjoy using my Real Techniques brushes, i couldn’t let this set go when it went on sale: was €100 and i got it for €40. I got 5 brushes (4 being dual sided) and very nice pouch to keep them all together. Although the handles are made for traveling, the heads are full size and the same quality as if you would be buying individual ones. You get in the set a powder/blush brush, dual sided concealing brush, eyebrow brush, eyeshadow brush and eye lining/defining brush. Looking forward to play with them.

Chanel Bronze Universal

Chanel Bronze Universal Everybody and their mother are using this cream bronzer and it was on my wish list for ages. Great for contouring, fixing a bad tan or just by itself for an overall glow during holiday, its definitely living up to its reputation. I plan on using it with my Bourjois Kabuki brush and maybe with the Real Techniques Stippling brush when i want a more defined contour.

Mac Mineralized Blush in Stereo Rose

IMG_6884 Initially i went to Mac to check it out, convinced im not going to like it and that its probably overly hyped. Boy was i wrong! Was love at first swatch: delightfully soft, shimmery coral with golden undertones. Whats not to like?

Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Overnight Hair Healer and Intense Rescue Melting Balm

Charles Worthington I’ve treated my hair so bad last year with all the repeated bleaching and box dyeing that im surprised i still have some left. So i promised this year will be all about repair and regeneration. The Charles Worthington products caught my eye in Boots (currently on sale) and they seem to be exactly what i need. The Overnight Ultimate Hair Healer is a leave in overnight (!) treatment that strengthens your hair while you sleep, while the Intense Rescue Melting Balm with a blend of 7 essential oils and butters its a balm to oil, meant to be applied on dry hair for 20 minutes before shampoo and conditioner.

Both of the products promise to double hair strength, reduce hair breakage by up to 80%, repair split ends by 56% and deliver a smooth frizz free hair in just a week of using the products. Very excited to try them properly.

Still have some more stuff to get from my wish list, love this ‘new year’ feeling and im going to embrace change with open arms. Any other must have products out there?
