Haulin' #10: High End Beauty ft Naked 3, Bobbi Brown & Stila


Sorry lovelies, it's yet another beauty haul. I tend to go through phases of wanting to buy either loads of clothes, or loads of beauty bits - as you may have noticed, it's the beauty bit right now. I really don't have that many high-end makeup items that aren't lipsticks, so I am trying to expand my collection. You get what you pay for right? I bought these items from House of Fraser, Beauty Bay and ASOS and got 10% discount on all of them. You may also notice my photos look way way better. I bought a new lens for my Canon - it's the Canon 50mm f/1.8 II lens. I'll be sure to do a little review on it soon!




Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze - £35
I was stuck in a rut, whether to buy a Bobbi Brown eye shadow quad or this Bobbi Brown shimmer brick that could double up as eye shadows, a bronzer and a highlighter. I went for the Shimmer Brick, because for £35, I want to get my moneys worth.  



Bobbi Brown Blush in Nectar - £19
I am a bit disappointed in this blush. In real life it looks nothing like the House of Fraser swatches, or the swatches I found online. I thought it would be a warm peachy colour, but it's actually a more cool rose pink. I have a shade exactly like this from Fashionista that cost me £2 which I never use, so I am definitely going to return this one. 



Stila Eye Shadow Trio in Gilded - £13
I am really into little eye shadow trios at the moment. It takes the fussing of what shades to choose, and gives you perfectly compatible lid, crease and brow bone colours.



Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette - £37
This purchase was just a no brainer. Who doesn't want the Naked 3 Palette right now? I am so excited to try this because the shades are so different from the previous palettes and different from anything I have ever tried. It is a very warm toned palette so should suit my skin tone nicely.



Urban Decay Naked 24/7 Double Ended Glide-On Pencil - £12
I'm not a huge eyeliner user, mainly because apart from the Topshop khol liners, I am yet to find one that actually stays on my waterline. I recently saw Rachel's review of the Urban Decay 24/7 eye liners and was pretty much sold on them. Rather than buy one shade for £14, I thought because I probably won't use it daily, I would go for the double ended in Zero and Whiskey.

  1. Its such a shame that the blusher isn't what you thought, the colour looks so pretty!

      Yeah I was super disappointed being my first Bobbi Brown blush, but hopefully I can return it for something that suits me better :)

  2. Thanks for the shout out! I'm going to have to get my hands on one of the double ended Naked pencils. I was shopping online one day and had the Naked Basics pencil in my basket but never got around to placing the order. Am I the only one guilty of creating a basket online but never actually buying the things?! I love all the other things you've posted, apart from the blusher which I used to own, went to look for after I read this post, and can't seem to find which just goes to show how much I liked it! I can't even remember the last time I used it!

    1. Ah that's alright! I am always browsing the House of Fraser or Beauty Bay websites adding loads of stuff to the basket and then talk myself out of it ha.
      And yes the Bobbi Brown blush is definitely being exchanged, I think I am going to go for Apricot or Nude Peach instead.
