Beauty & Hair Haul

Hollllla TGIF! I haven't blogged since Monday which really annoys me, I hate to be inconsistent. However, my Fiance has been home for most of the week so we've been doing lots of things with our daughter Harper and just having some quality family time sooo sorry, not sorry. During my time away from the computer I have been purchasing a few beauty & hair products that I want to share with you, some I have used so a mini review will be provided. 

Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette, Feelunique.com £37.00

Oh my god, I have been craving this palette for about 2 months and now it's finally mine, which makes me very very very happy. I used it today for the first time & it's really quite stunning. The best thing about the palette is that the eyeshadows are ALL new shades and they are all absolutely beautiful and so well pigmented. I heard a lot of good things about the blusher and lots of bad things about the bronzer but I actually love them both. They are, I think, an acquired skin tone, personally they compliment each other so well on my skin. My only downfall in the palette is the mascara and lip gloss. The mascara because it's average at best no better than anything you can buy for a fiver on the high street. The lipgloss is stunning but I am not a glossy kind of girl, I would have much preferred a matte lipstick or a liquid eyeliner. Overall a great palette and I'm so pleased I bought it. 

Clinique Even Better Makeup Foundation SPF 15 in 03 Ivory,  Debenhams SAVE 10% £22.05

I love Clinique Repairwear foundation, it was my favourite foundation of all time UNTIL Clinique discontinued it and my search for my perfect foundation began again. I have a real problem with high street foundations I swear there's an ingredient in all of them that makes me hate them. Saying that I do love Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation, but it really is the best of a bad situation. I can't even express enough how much I believe in investing money in your foundation there are so many reason's to spend £10 - £20 more than a high street brand. I find that I go through a high street foundation in 4 weeks if not less because you have to use SO MUCH to get a flawless finish, when I pay an extra tenner I find it lasts 6 - 8 weeks. I also get terrible skin when I use high street foundations, I get dry patches under my eyes and a really oily nose, it's not attractive. So I bought this foundation to see if my bond with Clinique, as far as foundations go, would be rekindled. So far I'm loving it but I've only worn it once today and I did my makeup an hour ago so I don't want to rate it or slate until I've given it a fair chance to impress - stay tuned ha ha!

Batiste XXL Volume Dry Shampoo, ASOS.com £3.99

I was introduced to Batiste dry shampoo about 4 years ago and I was initially obsessed with it but as if with a lot of beauty products my relationship with them usually fizzles out after a few months and I find something new to be obsessed with. I have very greasy hair, I don't know if this is just because I mess about with and touch my hair all day long but it looks like I've dipped my head in a chip fryer if I don't wash it every other day. I'm more than aware of the damage over washing your hair does so I have bought Batiste back into my life and I honestly love it after one use. I back comb my hair when I have my extensions in for a night out, those days are gone with this wonderful product. The volume element of this dry shampoo is out of this world, I haven't washed my hair for 3 days and it is still in a beautiful condition. I still have volume, it smells fresh, I just can't believe I left it so long to get this, go out and buy it you will not regret it!

Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Color Infra Reds Collection in 6.60 Fiery Red, Boots £5.96

I get asked on a daily basis what colour I use to get my hair this colour and the answer is THIS HAIR DYE! I have been red since like 2010 I think, so I have been through every single red hair dye the UK has to offer to find my perfect shade and I have finally found it! I have been using this for about a year and I can't fault it, it's really simple to use. It gives me the richest colour and just the right amount of shine when it's freshly dyed it's perfect for me and I'm literally desperate to dye my hair right now so I can't wait to get this on. 

Perfect Girl Brit Rocks Wild Strip Lashes, Savers £2.49

I am crazy about Eyelure but I find it so difficult, overwhelming and EXPENSIVE to find the right style of strip lash for me. I found these in Savers which is a store in the UK that sells beauty products at a lower price than in your standard drugstore. These eyelashes I pray never get discontinued because they are my perfect style and length, they are absolutely flawless. They are ultra flexible for curling and they don't have that annoying stiff strip you get from other cheap eyelashes. The glue is AMAZING too, I've cried and these still manage to stay on. I can't fault them and they are my number one makeup product for nights out. 

I hope you've enjoyed this haul and my ramble on investing in foundations! What have you been buying this month? I would love to know! Leave a comment below or tweet me @3beksbabe.
