Product Empties #4

Here we are again, my fourth product empties post! You can read all previous ones here if you wish: 1, 2 and 3. This time around it's mainly concentrated on skincare products because as you are all probably aware, it's seemingly impossible to finish makeup! So read on to see what products I've used up recently..

The Birthday Haul

The Birthday Haul

Early last month, I celebrated my 24th birthday. As I've gotten older, I now receive money more than presents because I like being able to buy the things that I want so I leave the presents until Christmas time. I also think I'm pretty hard to buy for so I suppose that helps out my family and friends! So over the past four weeks, I've done a bit of shopping and picked up some new makeup and skincare etc. Keep on reading to see what I got!

August Beauty Wishlist

August Beauty Wishlist

I've bought a lot of makeup and skincare recently but as you all know when you're an addict this does not stop you from having a wishlist as long as your arm! If only I could have bought everything with my birthday money, but I got some great products that you'll all see in an upcoming post. But for now, here's what I want to spend my pennies on next..

R+CO Dallas Thickening Shampoo | £22 | Link
I got a sample of this shampoo along with its conditioner companion in a recent order from Space NK and oh my word, it is amazing! I have thin hair which goes flat and limp often and it drives me mad, especially in humid weather so I was really excited to sample this and the results were great so now I need the full-size bottle. The only problem is it's so much more than I'd usually spend on shampoo! Eek!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Sun Dipped | £39 | Link
I've been seeing this gorgeous highlighting palette literally everywhere recently and it's made me want it so bad! Both shades look gorgeous but I love Sun Dipped the most, Moonstone is simply stunning!

Smith & Cult Nail Polishes | £19 | Link
I'm not even that much of a fan of nail polishes due to being utterly terrible at painting my nails and would probably never ever dream of spending so much on nail polish. However, these are just so beautiful! Everytime Anna (Viviannadoesmakeup) mentions these on her videos, snapchats etc I just swoon! Psycho Candy is probably my favourite. Should I splurge?

Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil | £85 | Link
Another majorly expensive product but again there is so much hype around this, it makes me want to give it a go! It seems so luxurious and for that price, you'd have to hope it works!

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick | £42 | Link
I've never tried a foundation stick before so this one from Hourglass intrigues me. After watching Anna (Viviannadoesmakeup, again) apply this in a recent video, it seemed to have great coverage and looked incredibly easy to apply!

Tanya Burr Soft Luxe Lip Gloss in Martha Moo | £5.99 | Link
I'm never usually one to buy into 'celebrity' makeup lines, however, I really like the look of this matte lip gloss from Tanya Burr's collection and it's certainly popular as it's sold out everywhere! Martha Moo is a gorgeous pink mauve shade. I love the look of Rhubarb & Custard too.

MAC 217 Blending Brush | £20 | Link
Kind of annoyed with myself for not buying this brush with my birthday money! Everyone raves about this eyeshadow blending brush and I've been meaning to buy it for a long long time.

Zoeva En Taupe Palette | £18 | Link
How beautiful is this palette?! I'm not one to go too overboard or heavy on eyeshadow, so this looks perfect for me. The shades all seem light, neutral and soft.

What's on your wishlist, currently?

July Favourites

I can't believe July has come to an end already. This is the month I always look forward to as it's my birthday month and it's completely flown by but that shouldn't be any surprise now as 2016 is just going too fast. What is happening!? Before we know it it'll be Christmas! Anyway, this month's favourites are a bit of a mix between new purchases and old loves that I've rediscovered..
