I told myself I would be curbing my spending throughout January and trying to use up/rediscover old products, surprise surprise, I caved and went Selfridges shopping which we all know is never a good idea. In my defence I feel I was quite constrained and only had a quick browse of the Chanel and Tom Ford counters and then proceeded to purchase a few items from Nars. Looking back I’m thinking the browse was actually a bad idea because now I’m lusting over those Tom Ford Lipsticks and the Soleil Tan De Chanel.
So from Nars I picked up the very popular Radiant Creamy Concealer which is massively hyped, hopefully with good reason. I thought the shade selection was pretty good however I went in knowing pretty much what shade I wanted anyway. I think in the summer months or when I’m wearing tan I might need to pick up Custard but for now Vanilla seems to be the perfect match. I've been testing this out wearing it almost every day and so far so good! I like to trial things out for a few weeks before I give a full review but on first impressions the coverage is good, the shade works well with my skin tone and I’m yet to see any creasing!
Secondly, and for me the most exciting purchase the Satin Lip Pencil in the shade Biscayne Park. I cannot tell you how long I've wanted to try one of these lip pencils and I don’t really know why it’s taken me so long to get my hands on one. I chose a gorgeous peachy pink shade for my first one but I really want to try some of the darker colours too. I love how pigmented they are with just the right amount of gloss, so far I'm completely in love!
