I had big plans for beauty shopping with my trip to Canada last week but everything got so busy that I wasn’t able to get nearly as much as I wanted. Half of the list I had prepped was out of stock and I didn’t have time to run from store to store to check the availability of things which was such a shame (I was gone for only a week!). However, I did pick up a small handful of goodies which I thought I’d put together in this post and share with you all:
I was instantly drawn to the Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist – it’s been on every beauty blogger hit list of favourites from 2016 so of course I had to try it! The bottle is gorgeous, all fancy and weighty, makes the experience of a facial spray so much more luxurious – and I’ll definitely update you further after I’ve had a chance to try it out a bit more. I also managed to grab the Anastasia Ultimate Glow Kit and I was over the moon. It’s incredibly coveted, and once you see it in real life, you’ll have no questions as to why that is. It’s the palette of highlighting dreams, especially if you’re into golds and icy whites. There are six large pans of ultimate glowing in this kit and I can’t wait to gear up the glow over the festive season!
I’d heard a lot about the Living Proof Full Volume Blast Hairspray so I grabbed a mini travel size and I’m already in love. Also, how adorable is this mini NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer?! So cute. They’re both perfect to carry around in my bag for touch ups and top ups, so I’m really glad I got my hands on them.
Onto a couple of drugstore finds – elf is a brand which is much more accessible in North America so I was keen to give a few items a try. When I got to the stand however, there wasn’t much there! I did manage to grab the last Studio Blending Brush (and I’ve heard a lot about this particular one being very good). I was also intrigued by the Sally Hansen Gel Nail Duo, so I picked one set up and decided to give it a whirl. It looks really promising – I’ve had it on for a couple of days and no chips so far, but I’ll keep you updated. The kit comes with a colour and a top coat – I chose the shade Birthday Suit, a beautiful pale pink nude.
Here’s to the week ahead!
