Splurge Time!


Confession time…I went a little crazy on the old shopping front last week, I think starting the blog gave me an excuse to do some serious shopping!  So I started at net-a-porter and purchased two Charlotte Tilbury products.  Then I headed into town to grab another Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and finally I wanted to try the raved about Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation.

I’ll start with the Charlotte Tilbury products.  All I can say is, I am in love!  I purchased the Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in the shade Love Glow, this powder is so creamy and so pigmented that it just glides onto your skin leaving a heavenly flushed glow.  The shade, although it looks slightly dark, is very natural and the gold shimmer give a nice sheen on your cheeks without being to0 ‘blingy’.  I also bought one of her famous Rock ‘N’ Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil in Barbarella Brown.  This honestly feels like a liquid liner, it glides on so easily without any dragging at all!  I purchased the barbarella brown because I like to use a lighter colour on a day to day basis and this is such a long lasting, pigmented chocolate brown colour which I just cannot get enough of!

I went into town last week to do, you guessed it, more shopping!  I repurchased the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 4.5.  I’m sure you have all heard so much about this foundation and it does not disappoint the hype.  This is the one foundation that can give my skin a glow without making my skin look shiny.  I have some seriously oily skin and this doesn’t make my skin overly shiny at all and it lasts all day and night, what more could you ask for in a product?!  This will definitely continue to be a staple in my beauty repertoire.  Finally I purchased the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in 20 Beige.  This foundation really does give a velvet finish to your skin, it makes it feel so silky smooth you just want to keep touching your smooth face.  As I said before I have oily skin so this works well as it keeps the oil at bay however, it doesn’t have the lasting power that the luminous silk has.  I also enjoy the lightness of this foundation, it feels like you not wearing any at all which I love.  Plus I am a total sucker for that Chanel sent they use in their products, I can’t get enough of it!!

Altogether I am seriously happy with my purchases.  I think they will definitely get a workout in the months to come.
