Recent purchases #25 featuring Estee Lauder, Zoeva, Tarte, YSL & more!

I've done a bit of shopping recently, in dribs & drabs really but I thought I'd put it all together to share with you today! It's mainly make-up and you will have seen some of them already if you follow me on instagram (here). So let's get started! 

I have wanted the Zoeva Cocoa palette for quite a while, having seen it on so many blogs. I probably have dupes of all of the shadows in my collection already but there was something about this palette that made me giddy so I just had to buy it. The fact that it has been sold out on Beautybay for so long made me want it even more and I can confirm that it is totally stunning in the flesh! 

Another product that I have had on my list for a while is the Eye of Horus Goddess Smokey Black Eye Pencil. I saw Beauty Life Michelle use this in one of her videos and she said that it was perfect for the tightline and that it doesn't transfer to the waterline, which sounds great because I don't wear anything on my waterline. I'm really looking forward to using this.

As soon as I saw Tarte Bling It On Amazonian Clay Palette on Roses Beauty Store, I instantly snapped it up. I only own one other Tarte blush & really love it. This is great value at £40 because it contains five blushes: Fetching, Dollface, Prim, Smashing and Beaming. They are all very wearable shades and I know I will get loads of use out of this palette.

YSL Rouge Volupte #1 Nude Beige is my all time favourite lipstick and I am a huge fan of YSL products in general, but I had never tried any from the Pur Couture range. Recently Feel Unique had a discount code, which gave £10 off a £25 spend, so I decided to get a lipstick from the range because the code meant it was practically free! I bought #10 Beige Tribute. It looks very similar to a lot of my other nude lipsticks, but a girl can never have enough nudes!

Estée Lauder Double Wear is probably one of the most hyped foundations in the beauty world but I think it would be a little too heavy for my dry skin, so having reading lots of reviews, I decided to try Double Wear Light. I am hoping this will work with my skin & I'll let you know how I get on.

When I was in Boots recently waiting for my prescription to be prepared, I decided I needed a little treat (that's the rule when you're buying meds, right?) and picked up Fleur Loves lashes from the Fleur De Force range. They've been sold out any time I looked for them previously. I'm looking forward to wearing them!

I also picked up Essie Sole Mate (I actually meant to pick up Wicked!) and although it is similar to other polishes that I already own, I am delighted to own it because I love Essie polishes and the brush is wide, which makes application easier.

Finally, because I am really happy with the Margaret Dabbs foot cream that I reviewed recently, I decided to buy the hand lotion from the brand. I am hoping this will be just as effective as the foot lotion and if the texture is the same, a little will go a long way and this 200ml bottle should last me a very long time.

So that's the end of my haul! I'd love to hear if you have used any of these products and what you thought of them? I'd also love to know what you have been buying recently? Please tell me in the comments below!
