Beauty: January Beauty Haul ft Freedom Cosmetics, Beauty Blender and Stila

Thursday, January 21, 2016

At the moment there's nothing more exciting for me then a make-up delivery or having a wander round Boots and Superdrug or a look online at Feel Unique or Beauty Bay. There's been a few recent editions to my beauty collection and I just couldn't wait to share these with you all!

Cheap Beauty Blender
 Beauty Blender - eBay

I've spent months and months lusting after the beauty blender. I'm a massive fan of the real techniques complexion sponge which comes in under £5 (when you buy it online off Amazon, Ebay, Feel Unique etc) you can't do much wrong. Real Techniques make the best brushes and the sponge is amazing too but there was always a part of me which still wanted the beauty blender. Oh my goodness the beauty blender does not disappoint.  

Beauty Blender Review
 Beauty Blender - eBay
At £16 online on sites like Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty it is quite an expensive product so therefore I'd recommend heading to eBay and picking one up. Mine cost about £5 which is an absolute steal compared to the price it retails at. I couldn't find the exact link to it online (I think the listing ended) but I've found one similar here.
 Freedom Pro Blush Palette in Bronze and Baked - Superdrug

If there's one thing I'm obsessed with at the moment it's highlighter. This palette really caught my eye due to the wide range of shades especially as it included a couple of bronzer shades too. My favourite shades are the top white shade on the left and the shade in the middle on the right hand side. I've not actually tried out the bronzer shades yet but I'm sure they won't disappoint and this palette is an absolute steal at £6.

  Freedom Pro Glow Roar - Superdrug

Is it bad that I picked up this purely because of the leopard print pattern? How amazing is this?! This is a highlighter and it's only £3.50 which is a real bargain. I love experimenting with make-up and this highlighter is quite peachy which goes well with my skin tone!
Freedom Pro Contour Palette in Medium 01 - Superdrug
Ever since my Maybelline contour palette smashed, I've been looking for a replacement. I really like this contour palette and the contour shade goes so so well with my skin tone. I think it adds great definition to my cheekbones.
 Stila Eyes Are The Window palette in Spirit* - Look Fantastic

First of all OH MY GOD have you ever seen anything so beautiful in your life before?! I absolutely adore this palette from Stila and I felt so lucky to be sent this. I absolutely love my Eyes Are The Window palette in Soul (you can check out my blog post here) and this palette in Spirit has so many amazing colours in it. There's more colourful shades in this palette compared to the Soul palette which I love as I really want to experiment a bit more with what eyeshadow colours I use for my make-up looks.
  Stila Eyes Are The Window palette in Spirit* - Look Fantastic 

There will be a full review in an upcoming post about this palette as it's that amazing it needs it's own post (yes I am in love with an eyeshadow palette) at only £30 this palette is an absolute steal. I think this palette is great for those of you who love a nude palette but also those who like to wear shimmery shades. My favourite shades in this palette are golightly, barefoot, oasis and slate. I'm so excited to start creating loads of make-up looks with this palette.

 Stila HD Beauty Balm* - (available at Feel Unique)

I've read a few reviews on this beauty balm and I was really excited when this arrived in the post. I'm trying to be a lot more natural with my choice of foundation as for the past few years I've loved using high-coverage matte foundations. Ever since the Bare Minerals complexion rescue came into my life I haven't looked book. I'm yet to try a Stila foundation but I'm now obsessed with this beauty balm. 
  Stila HD Beauty Balm* - (available at Feel Unique)

This beauty balm helps reduce the size of pores, helps controls blemishes and provides a really nice silky finish. I love using this after moisturising and applying before my foundation to make sure my make-up applies seamlessly. 
 Stila HD Beauty Balm* - (available at Feel Unique)
The beauty balm looks a lot like a tinted moisturiser once it's applied but it feels great on my skin. I love the finish this beauty balm gives and I definitely think this is going to be a firm favourite in my everyday make-up routine.
What's your favourite item from this beauty haul? What are you lusting after at the moment?
