Luxury Beauty Haul


With the festive period now upon us it was only necessary that I went out and got a few new beauty bits to see me through to the new year! So I recently headed to the House of Fraser (where I also work in case you didn't already know) and went around some of my favourite high end counters! There is something seriously satisfying about buying expensive make up! 

The first thing I got was the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation, which is a fairly new product and was on the receiving end of rather a lot of hype when it was first released. I'm definitely not one to buy into hyped up products so I didn't get it back then. It was only after I actually complimented one of my colleagues on her make up and she actually mentioned this foundation that I decided to get it! Her skin looked so flawless! I've never used YSL base products before so I don't know what to expect, but I've heard good things so I have quite high hopes! 

I also picked up the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, which I have wanted for absolutely ages! I had a gift card from something that I'd returned so it almost seemed like fate and I was matched to the colour Custard which looks pretty much like my most perfect match ever! Its quite thick in consistency and I think its supposed to be quite high coverage so I'm hoping it will help cover the under eye dark circles from all of the hangovers I'll be sporting this month. Working in retail during the festive period definitely has its bad points! 

Lastly, I went to the Bare Minerals counter as I wanted to try on some of their base products for every day wear. I wasn't too sure about them in the end so I just went for a lip product as you can't really go wrong with that! This is the Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready and it seems to be a very hydrating formula which will be perfect for everyday. I really love the colour as its so natural and I don't really have much like it in my collection.

Will you guys be buying any luxury make up for the festive season? What do you all have your eye on?
