A Few Recent Buys

So, before I begin living the student lifestyle surviving on only pot noodles and cereal, I though I'd plan ahead and buy a few backup products for when I run out and can't afford to buy any more. 
Nearly all of the products featured are repurchases, however the post includes a few newbies that caught my eye. 

I have had this brush for years and it is finally on its last legs. So a hunt for another the same was on! I bought my original one from Boots about 7 years ago but they have seemed to stop selling them. But being a makeup hoarder I found myself on the Superdrug website and I stumbled across my replacement!
This brush is amazing for those with thick hair (like me) as its bristles are designed to hold heat whilst you are drying your hair in order to reduce drying time - something I am grateful for when I have overslept.

Yet another repurchase, but how can I not? Its an amazing concealer and great value for money too! It has two different shades and a translucent setting powder, all in a small little compact. Brilliant!

So I feel every beauty blogger in existence has been going on about this, so you can understand me wanting to see what all the hype was about. I picked it up on a recent 3 for 2 offer and with my student discount it was an absolute steal. I immediately tried it out and was amazed by the results. It really does blur! I might have to write a little review soon ;) 

New New New New New. I am a long time lover of Sally Hansen! I have been using her cuticle cream for ages, but I have never thought about buying her nail polishes before, until now! 
I walked past her stand in Boots, and this colour immediately caught my eye! As soon as I got home I realised why I loved the colour so much, and that is because it is the exact same as the Maybelline Colour Show in Urban Coral.  

I was sent a sample of this when it was first released and I'm surprised it has taken me this long to buy the full size product! I love the really light formula it gives, but that doesn't take away the fact that it still has good coverage! 

Seen as Soap & Glory was on offer in Boots (hence the load of products),I thought I'd plan ahead and wait for my mascara to run out. I love this stuff! It makes my lashes look amazing to the point where people have asked me if I am wearing falsies! I just looks so natural! A must repurchase. 

Again a repurchase. This is an absolute miracle working for my skin. I have a lot of scars on my face that I used to find a nightmare to get rid of. But this has really help! My scars are a lot less visible now and I will continue to repurchase for years to come. Probably.

I've seen the notebook version of this floating around the blogging community for quite some time and I have been wondering where I could get my hands on it. I recently went into Paperchase for a new journal and spotted the notebook and then I saw that they did a journal version too! £14 later and it was mine! 

What have you been buying recently?
Thanks for reading!

Love Charlotte x

(P.S- I am hoping to do a Q&A post, so can you leave me some questions to answer in the near future!)


  1. nice, great stuff :)

  2. Great stuff!

    1. I believe that there are three shades - light, medium and dark. I use light which I think would be the shade for most people. You could try going to your local drugstore (Boots or Superdrug if you are from the UK) and try the testers on the inside of your wrist x

  3. That journal is so cute! I love Paperchase xx

    1. Its so pretty I almost don't want to spoil it by writing in in! X

  4. Such lovely picks! I'm dying to try that concealer!

    1. You must, it is one of the best concealers I have ever used!

  5. Great post! I would really like to try some of these things, especially the BB cream! :D

    1. You should try them in your local drugstore! Worth a look, I swear by everything pictured! X
