Feeling Spendy

So last weekend, I was feeling rather spendy. 
I ordered the NARSsist Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette only to later receive an email saying it was out of stock and there had been an issue with the website. I was devastated! 
Now many normal people would simply move on. But what did I do? I ordered other things that exceeded the value of the initial purchase… Duh!

Firstly, I ordered the Clinique Cheek Pop in Berry Pop. I had resisted the urge for so long and finally thought "why not?". I am in love! I initially thought this was a cream blush with a powder finish but it is infact a powdery blush. The colour is beautiful! Why did I ever resist it?
I am in love with it! I initially thought this was a cream blush with a powder finish but it is infact a powder blush. The colour payoff is beautiful! Why did I ever resist it?
Plus the packaging is super cute and the product is bigger than I thought it would be which is always a bonus when it comes to high end prices!

The second thing I bought was the Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Liar. This was a very spontaneous purchase as I am very picky when it comes to lipgloss and never really wear it at all. I used to buy lip glosses and then end up throwing them away as they were too sticky. This one however, is perfect. The colour is lovely for the day time as it is one of those 'your lips only better' colours. I will certainly consider extending my shade range in the future as some of the other colours are to die for!

This, being my first Urban Decay product, assured me that the brand creates high quality products for fairly reasonable prices!
I therefore may end up splurging on the Naked palettes that I have been lusting over for so long!

After purchasing these two products, I took to checking my social media (big mistake). And saw someone tweet Pixiwoo saying that Superdrug had £10 off the Real Techniques Nic's Pics Set. So I went straight onto and ordered them no questions asked! 

I must say they are utterly fabulous! So soft! 
I have been using the cheek brush to apply the Clinique Cheek Pop and it just spreads the colour so evenly. If you are looking for a subtle look, you just sweep your brush over your cheeks and boom! But if you were wanting a more dramatic look, this brush can be used to build up the product to the desired amount.

(And you can never have too many eyebrushes)

All I can say is thank goodness for my student loan!

What have you all been buying recently?
Thanks for reading!
