Sunday Spending

Hi lovelies,

So I had my bursary come through this week, and even though I said to myself I'd be good with my spending. I went out and spent.

Soap and Glory 2-in-1 Foundation and Primer

I do love a bit of Soap and Glory and had been after this product for a while. However Boots currently are selling this for £9 as opposed to the usual £11, so I figured I'd pick this up. This is a 2-in-1 foundation & primer. 

It says to activate the primer the bottle needs shaking and gives a dewy flawless finish. I've been looking for some lighter foundations and looking forward to giving this a try. Lately as I've been on reading week if I've gone out I've just been using my BB cream - Lazy I know.

Real Techniques Brushes

Stippling Brush

Theres been a lot of hype about the real Technique brushes by Sam from the Pixiwoo sisters. While I was in Boots I figured I'd have a look to see if my local store stocked them and I was pleasantly surprised to see them.

I got the stippling brush as I have a love for these when applying both foundation and cream blushers. When I first opened this I was shocked by how smooth the brush was, and noticed that it was a lot shorter than my other stippling brushes, so looking forward to using this.

Blush Brush

While I spotted these brushes I was drawn to this particular brush. I find with the blush brushes that I currently own (Sigma in particular) they are quite small so sometimes I have to go over my cheeks a few times.

When I saw this I was shocked by the size of the product but knew I had to try it out. I love the tapered design of this brush and is once again a very soft brush. When I opened it and felt the brushes softness I just started wiping it on my face - yes I'm that sad.

Core Collection

While getting the other brushes I also picked this up, mainly for the buffing brush. However once I got these brushes home and opened them up I fell in love with the others. The concealer brush is so small I'm in love with it - prefer smaller ones. 

The set is great and contains basic brushes that would be perfect for anyone building their collection. The buffing brush has been used by both Sam and Nic to apply their foundation so I thought why not give it a go. The set also comes in a handy case which is great for travelling.

Really looking forward to using these.

V05 Elixr with Argan Oil

I was initially torn between this and the Argan Oil product in Superdrug. However this was on offer for £2.99 so I couldn't resist this as I was only trying Argan oil on my hair. £2.99 is better to waste than £9.99 especially if I don't end up liking the product.

I've heard some really good things about this and even though it's only a 50ml product I suppose it's great to take with you and test out.

River Island Robot Necklace

Since my birthday I've had a River Island voucher from work that has been sitting in my room. However I spotted this cute and quirky number in River Island and decided that I had to have it.

I had a similar one from New Look a few years ago, and what I love about this is not only the pink heart on the robot but the way that it reminds me of 'Bad Robot' that used to appear at the end of Lost.

I hope you enjoyed my little bursary spending spree.
Have any of you tried Argon oil on your hair? Or what do you recommend to help improve your hair?
