RECENT PURCHASES - MAKEUP

I've made a few recent makeup purchases lately and thought I'd share. 


I picked up the Bobbi Brown Ultra Nude Eye Palette and eye shadow in Champagne Quartz. The flash makes these look a lot lighter than they really are. 


Here's a closer view of the Bobbi Brown Nude Palette. I've been using this palette for a week now and I like it but I'm not sure if I LOVE it. To be honest they're not very pigmented and the Metallic Eye Shadow barely goes on at all. I've always been a fan of Bobbi Brown blushes but have never used the eye shadows before. I'm thinking the pigment issue and the texture of the metallic eyeshadow is probably just an issue in this palette...


This is my Tom Ford haul. I am so in LOVE with his makeup line! I ordered lip gloss in Sugar Pink and Naked, the blush in Frantic Pink and Wicked and the lipstick in Spanish Pink and Blush Nude.


So I really LOVE the Sugar Pink lip gloss! It's the perfect 'Barbie' pink gloss that looks great on its own and can be layered on top of lipsticks. I also really love the yummy vanilla smell of these glosses. I'm not a huge fan of Naked right now though. It looks like a really nice nude/pink with a bit of shimmer in the bottle but on my lips it looks too milky. I have to try it with a few other things to see if it grows on me. Next up I'd love to try Rose Crush.


I'm a real fan of these blushes. The colour is really pigmented and goes on easily. I haven't really worn Frantic Pink alone (I usually layer it on top of another blush) but Wicked is the perfect pink blush for me.


I've posted about my love of these lipsticks before. Blush Nude is the BEST nude lipstick around. I usually put a light pink gloss on top and it's perfect. Spanish Pink is a really nice everyday pink.
