High End Beauty Haul

Christmas and the New Year brings new excuses to buy oneself presents and collect some new additions to go in the makeup collection for the fresh year ahead. 

During Christmas and the new year I spent time in France and the Netherlands. Along with an amazing time came the purchases of some lovely treats!

I have wanted one of these wash bags for ages but promised myself that I wouldn't buy one until I found one that I really loved (rather than rushing in and buying one that I would get sick of looking at rather quickly). 

When I saw this one in Amsterdam over the New Year I just had to own it at once. It didn't hurt that it was on sale either!

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Real Sand.

I am rekindling an old flame with this stuff! This powder gets me lots of compliments and I often get asked what I am wearing on my face when I have set my foundation with this (I wear it as a setting powder rather than a foundation, most of the time).

This stuff isn't cheap, but it's something that I feel definitely gives me my monies worth!

Most people that know me will be well aware that I am an eyebrow enthusiast. I love the things! They have the power to take your face from drab to fab.
After hearing so many good things about the Dipbrow Pomade it was hard to resist buying it when I stumbled across it

I haven't tried this before but it has intrigued me for about a year now. I really wanted something to set my liquid concealer and brighten up under my eyes.

After reading up on this stuff (a lot) and watching Shaaanxo's 2014 high end favourites video on youTube featuring this promising product, I went and finally purchased it.

I spotted these on sale at the bareMinerals counter when I was buying my well-rested powder. I have played with them a few times in various stores and really liked how they felt on the back of my hand when I swatched them (I don't try them directly on my lips as a general rule. I don't get cold sores and I don't plan on getting any from a lip gloss on a makeup counter). 

As these were on sale and the box set comes with a range of colours, I decided that the Kissing Booth set was the perfect way to try the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lip glosses.

Have you tried any of these products before?
