The first item I added into my basket was another one of First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Blemish Patrol Pads, I got the biggest pack which contains 60 wipes as I tried these out in my previous beauty haul and I loved them so much I wanted to add them back into my skincare routine. They are the perfect way of quickly toning the skin and helping to reduce acne and blemishes in a busy makeup and skincare routine. They really do help reduce my acne breakouts so I love using these twice a day.
The next items I added was the Lottie London Brush & Beyond Bag which I thought would be perfect for carrying my makeup brushes in when I go travelling and away for weekends etc. It’s a clear plastic bag with colourful makeup related words printed all over the bag. Also from Lottie London I picked up their Buff and Blend Brush which is a flat top buffing brush which I love using to buff my foundation in. This brush has recently been added to Lottie London’s brush range so I’m excited to try this out as I love their current brushes that I own.
I then added another of The Pro Hygiene Collection Makeup Brush Sanitising Wash to my basket, I love this product! It cleans my makeup brushes so well paired with my Brush Egg and it helps reduce the amount of bacteria that builds up on my brushes so they are nice and clean and don’t put the bacteria and dirt back onto my face which can cause breakouts.
I also added another of the Burt’s Bees Nourishing Mango Lip Balms, it smells amazing and really helps nourish, moisturise and soften my lips to stop them getting dry and chapped. It’s one of my first steps in my skincare routine to ensure my lips are nice and moisturised ready for my lipstick of the day. It is an essential in my makeup bag and I take one with me everywhere I go.
I then added a new brand to my collection which is EcoTools I have heard soooo many cruelty free and vegan bloggers rave about their brushes so I was intrigued to try them out so I picked up their Bamboo Domed Bronzer Brush to try out with applying my bronzer. This brush is soooooo soft and I love the thick bamboo handle to it which makes it easy to hold and it’s also free standing so it’s perfect to stand on your beauty vanity and it’s definitely a cheaper version of the Tarte Bamboo brushes which I also love.
Another new brand that has been added to my collection is Yes To, again I’ve heard sooo many cruelty free bloggers and youtubers raving about their skincare range so I picked up quite a lot. They are soo affordable and their products come in a range of gorgeous scents. I picked up their Grapefruit Dark Spot Correcting Body Creme, Grapefruit Uneven Skin Eye Cream, Grapefruit Uneven Skin Tone Facial Scrub, Cucumbers Soothing Body Wash, Cucumber Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes x30, Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask, Coconut Cleansing Wipes x25, Blueberries Smooth and Shine Shampoo and the Blueberries Smooth and Shine Conditioner. I am really interested in trying these out and seeing how good they are. I will definitely do a further review on all of these products once I’ve tried them all out.
I then picked up a product from PUR which I haven’t purchased from before but I have tried out their Big Look mascara which I received in a Glossybox and I really liked it. So I thought I would try out their Stay Matte Try Me Kit which comes with 4 products to try out. It includes their Dirty Girl Mudd Masque, Correcting Primer in Prep & Perfect, Balancing Act Oil Control Powder and their Big Look Mascara. I’m really excited to try these, the oil control powder looks really different from any others I’ve seen, at first I thought it was a bronzer.
I next added the Bagsy Lip Velvet Soft Matte Lip Colour in the shade Spinning Plates which is a really pretty dark nude shade with a pinky undertone. It’s such a nice formula and feels so nice on the lips without being too drying but has a lovely matte finish. This shade is definitely a shade I love wearing. The packaging and tube is soooo nicely designed and feels rather luxurious.
After buying some of the NARS lip products I have been wanting to try out more from their ranges so I decided to try their Velvet Matte Skin Tint in the shade Terre-Neuve. I hope this is the right shade for me but we will see when I try it out. You can see what I think of it once I’ve tried it out here.
I then added another Nailed London by Rosie Fortescue nail polish, I got the shade Stormy Violets which is a really nice dusty blue with silver specks in it. I have quite a few of these nail polishes and I really love the colours, finish and how long these polishes last because of their gel formula. I am unsure if these are actually cruelty free but I love them so much I’m going to keep using them until I know for sure.
And finally I added a few pieces from NYX to my basket. I purchased their Mineral Stick Foundation in Fair, Shine Killer Primer, Pore Filler Primer and the Matte Bronzer in Light. I have a feeling the Shine Killer and Pore Filler Primers will be like my Benefit POREfessional Primer which will be perfect if I can find a cruelty free alternative as that is my favourite primer to use. I have been wanting to buy a stick foundation for quite a while and when I heard about the new Clinique one I have been desperate to buy it but my shade kept getting sold out and also Clinique isn’t cruelty free so this was a better alternative, you can read about what I think of it once I’ve tried it out here.
