Catch up & watch
I’m onto the next New Purchases Show & Tell February 2017 already! Other than Valentine’s Day, I can’t say a great deal has happened this month but it’s flown by.
I’ve been keeping up my promise (not only to me, but to you too) to try and buy things that are more varied in the hopes of making this series a little more interesting…
New Purchases Show & Tell February 2017
So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson – 21 seconds in
As I mentioned in the video, this was quite an interesting read particularly aimed at social media. Albeit in a negative light, it’s really incredible how our life online can affect everything around us. It’ll make you think twice the next time you tweet about anything. Fact.
H&M iPhone 6/6s Phone Case – 1:23 minutes in
One Saturday I was standing in the queue at H&M when, all of a sudden, I was drawn to this very phone case! Don’t laugh at me, I try to be all professional on the outside, but on the inside I still like pink, glittery cute things. The fact I’ve had so many compliments on this phone case proves I’m not the only one too!
Benefit They’re Real Mascara! – 2:14 minutes in
As if I need to add more detail about this mascara, everyone already knows this mascara! I received a tester a long time ago once upon a Birchbox. I remember being impressed then, so I picked it up on a whim.
Clinque Line Smoothing Concealer – 2:31 minutes in
If you’ve read my Clinque Airbrush Concealer review then you’ll already know why I’ve picked this up. This is such a creamy concealer, which I hope to post a full review on soon.
Clinque Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser – 2:42 minutes in
This was not on my shopping list whatsoever, but one of those Clinque ‘free gift bag’ deals were on! I’m so glad I gave this a shot, I might even be as bold to claim it’s replaced my favourite ever tinted moisturiser. It provides a really lovely finish and feels weightless. A full review might be in the pipeline for this too, I love it!
Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette – 3:05 minutes in
*choir voices sing!* Oh yes, as I mentioned in my previous New Purchases Show & Tell blog post for January, I was planning a trip to an Urban Decay counter this month and that I did! I had a £50 Debenhams voucher to spend and I just had to buy an Urban Decay eyeshadow palette, but which one? After some deliberation between this and the smokey eye palette, I opted for the safer, everyday colours bet. I can’t wait to get started with this!
Spornette 3″ Provo Collection Round Brush – 4:14 minutes in
Everyone’s raving about the Wet Brush at the moment and I’m sorry to say I haven’t tried it. I am, however, trying this – a real boar bristled brush. After seeing a friend’s amazingly silky hair and her swearing by this brush, I had to get it. Update soon!
Topshop PETITE Red Spot Mini Tea Dress – 5:17 minutes in
Another month, another Topshop dress. Topshop are just so on it right now with dresses, I need to stop checking the app before I buy the whole petite range! This dress is just lovely though, and I think I can definitely wear it now and when the weather gets a bit warmer too.
I’ve always wanted to try Nars and their foundations, so I’m planning a trip to a Nars counter sometime this month. I know I made a few beauty purchases this time and I want to keep this varied, so I will be on the lookout for other things other than make up. (Remember: recommendations always welcome!)
Other than that, I’ve been recommended a game I might like… the only game I’ve included in this series is an app. This game, however, is a PC/Mac game – but more on that come the end of March!
I have not been asked, sponsored or paid to review any of these products. I just like to shop!
