I often go through phases of spending money. I mean, as anyone who knows me will be able to tell you, I am a spender, I like stuff and I like buying new things, but sometimes I have moments where spending gets a bit out of hand and I go on a bit of a splurge. This was one of these times.
It's usually unlike me to buy makeup or beauty products without doing my research first. I watch a few youtube videos, read some blog posts and work out if the product is going to suit me, but on a splurge like this one, I usually just hit up boots and pick out anything that takes my fancy.
I've had a play with most of these products and so far I'm pretty happy with all of them, despite not having read much about them before buying. The Maybelline mascara hasn't been brilliant but I think I need to try it out for longer before I make a judgement. The Rimmel eyeshadow stick seems to be a really great formula and the colours are really lovely, it also stays on really well.
If you follow me on twitter you might already know that I had a little bit of a high end splurge. The Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow quad in Dolce Vita is something I have seen everywhere, and after going back and forth for a few days I decided screw it I needed it in my life, so now that baby is mine! Along with it I also ordered the Bitch Perfect lipstick, firstly because I love the name but also because it's a beautiful wearable coral shade and unlike anything I own.

All of these lip products are really great. I adore Bitch Perfect and just want to wear it all the time, it feels so lovely and is such a beautiful colour. Essence's lipsticks are considerably cheaper but they are a brilliant formula and one of my favourite drug store lipsticks. The L'oreal lipstick I picked up from Tesco as it was reduced down to £3 and I'm always looking for a bargain, I've yet to wear it, but it looks like a nice easy to wear shade. The Collection Cream Puff is something I've seen raved about a lot, and I can see why, it's such a beautiful consistency and feels sort of velvety, the colour is a really pretty pink and I can't wait to get more use out of it.
