My latest beauty haul with Feel Unique picking up some much needed re-purchases and also some favourites that are perfect for Autumn and the colder weather. I said in my latest CF Beauty Haul that I was going to pick up a gorgeous eyeshadow palette from NARS but since then NARS has announced they have started to sell in China so they are no longer considered cruelty free so I removed that palette from my basket and picked up the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette which I have seen everyone rave about and I’ve been dying to pick it up amongst other amazing beauty products.
The first item I put into my basket was a Pressed Powder Foundation from Nude By Nature which I’ve been looking into to try their products and was intrigued by this foundation as it’s full of natural ingredients and I’ve been looking into the ingredients in beauty products recently and try and stay away from the ones filled with harmful chemicals so I wanted to try this foundation and I’ll write up a Foundation Review once I’ve tested it.
I then wanted to pick up a hand bag friendly hand cream as recently my hands have suddenly become very dry and always want to keep a hand cream on me so I picked up this Purely Age Defying Hand Treatment Cream from Jurlique which smells amazing and is the perfect size to fit in any hand bag. It’s lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and is smells amazing.
I have been wanting to try a fake tan but nothing too full on that it looks fake so I’ve been looking into cruelty free fake tan brands and came across Skinny Tan which sounds really good. I picked up their Gradual Tanning Mousse which you can wash off in the shower and it gradually progresses into a tan over time which I’m interested in trying. If anyone is a pro at fake tanning please leave your tips in the comments for me as I’ve never done it before.
Shades from left to right: Ounce, Chaser, Sauced, Low Blow, Lumbre, He Devil, Dirty Talk, Scorched, Cayenne, En Fuego, Ashes, Ember, Bond Girl and Disturbed.
So as I said above that I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Heat eyeshadow palette which is absolutely gorgeous. I now have a full collection of the Naked palettes so far which I love so much. The pigmentation and range of colours are so die for! I never thought I would find the guts to purchase such an out there palette but I’ve been looking at trying more warmer colours and step away from the safety of my golden eyeshadow looks especially with Autumn coming up fast upon us – which I’m so excited for! I also picked up a lipstick from UD which I’ve wanted to add into my Autumn/Winter makeup wardrobe, I grabbed the VICE Matte Comfort Lipstick in Disturbed which is a gorgeous dark berry shade which I don’t normally wear but I’m excited to try the darker shades. I then picked up a new brow pencil as my Rimmel one isn’t cruelty free and is also filled with harmful chemicals so I wanted to try UD’s, I picked up the Brow Beater Microfine Brow Pencil and Brush in the shade Neutral Brown which matches my brow colour perfectly. It’s slim and fits in any makeup bag and has a pencil on one end and the spooly on the other end.
I then wanted to add a new CT lipstick into my collection and grabbed her gorgeous Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade Bond Girl which is a gorgeous pinky berry shade that’s perfect for the autumn weather. Her lipsticks are the perfect formula and feel great on the lips.
I picked up a new mascara from Pacifica which I’ve been wanting to buy more makeup products from them as I have a few of their perfumes which I really like so I picked up their Aquarian Gaze Abys Mascara in Black so I’m really interested in seeing what it’s like and may think about picking up more of their makeup.
Finally I picked up a new bottle of my Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic toner which I love. I love that Liz Earle products are powered with natural ingredients that are good for your skin and their products really work and have helped so much with my acne prone skin.
What beauty products are your autumn/winter staples? Which products are you excited to try?
