What's New: Nars, Real Techniques, MAC, Body Shop, Organix and L'Oreal Products..

I felt like I hadn't made any purchases in a while so last week I decided to go into town and I guess treat myself to a few things. Uni is very stressful at the moment and like most of us, shopping never fails to make me happy. As always, I thought I'd show you the beauty products that I came back with.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Range 

For some reason, my skin has been acting up a little recently and I had previously gone into The Body Shop with my friend the week before last as she had heard good things about their Tea Tree range; the 'Blemish Fade Night Lotion' in particular. Initially I was going to wait until she had tried it out for a while and then get her feedback on it but I was feeling impatient and decided to head back and purchase them for myself. At the time they were doing a deal along the lines of "Buy 3 skincare items and get £5 off". I can't remember the exact offer to be honest but I ended up going for 'Blackhead Exfoliating Wash', 'Skin Clearing Toner' and of course the 'Blemish Fade Night Lotion'.

Blackhead Exfoliating Wash - £5.50
Skin Clearing Toner - £7.00
Blemish Fade Night Lotion - £8.00 


At the moment, Herbal Essences Hello Hydration is just not doing it for me so I wanted to try out something else. I love argan oil so I picked up the Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner and also their Coconut Milk Conditioner as Boots were doing a 3 for 2 offer. After purchasing these, I came home to read a lot of negative reviews on these so I have been reluctant to try them out =/ . If you use these, please let me know what you think!

Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo - £1.99
Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner - £1.99
Coconut Milk Conditioner - £1.99

Nars Casino Bronzer
Okay so if you're like me and you were excited about the good weather we've been having recently, you would agree that it's time to get glowing! I actually ordered this from ASOS whilst they were doing their 25% off discount for students. I had never seen this bronzer in person so I bought this based on images floating on Google hoping that it would be dark enough to show up on my skin tone. Unfortunately not! It doesn't show up how I would like it to but you can see some of the subtle shimmer. I wouldn't advise anyone of my skin tone or darker to go for this shade (which I think is the darkest NARS goes).

Casino Bronzer - £24.00

MAC Sweet As Cocoa Blush

I've wanted this blush for a long time but avoided buying because I thought it was very similar to MAC Format Blush which I own. I still think it is actually but I would say 'Sweet as Cocoa' has more red tones. This blush really complements women of colour and is a great everyday blush or for those who are just starting to wear blush. 

Sweet as Cocoa Blush - £17.50

L'Oreal Super Liner - Black Lacquer

So I've used L'Oreal Super Liner Carbon Gloss, Super Liner Perfect Slim and now I have purchased the Super Liner Black Lacquer. Aimlessly walking around Superdrug as I usually do, I decided to buy the Super Liner in Black Lacquer. No reason in particular, just wanted to try something new! 

Super Liner Black Lacquer - £6.49

Real Techniques

Core Collection
Blush Brush

Stippling Brush

Last but not least, I wanted to show you the Real Techniques brushes that I purchased after so many weeks of deliberation. With them on a 3 for 2 offer, how could I resist?!
I've heard and read nothing but great reviews on these brushes by makeup artist Samantha Chapman from Pixiwoo on YouTube, so I just had to take advantage of the offer that Boots had on. I'm not sure if they've still got their 3 for 2 offer on but if they do, make sure you definitely think about getting these brushes. I paid 30-something pounds for 6 decent quality brushes! I chose to get the Core Collection, Blush Brush and Stippling Brush. They are all very soft, especially the blush brush! There are other brushes/sets to choose from though. If you haven't heard about the Real Techniques brushes make sure you Google or YouTube them!

Core Collection - £21.99
Blush Brush - £9.99
Stippling Brush - £11.99

Do you own any of these products? If so, let me know what you think of them

  1. I hadn't read any reviews on the Organix shampoos and kinda just went for it. I'm using the Moroccan shampoo at the moment and I really like it. Leaves hair soft and washes out nicely. My mum loves it too, definitely give it a try. :)

    1. Really? Ahh thanks
      I was shocked to see so many bad reviews on it. I might actually give it a try :) x

  2. i really like the coconut milk deep conditioner and hair oil...it smells yummy and leaves my hair feeling soft and manageable :)

    1. Thanks :)
      Sweet as Cocoa is a really nice shade and I'mm loving the RT brushes too! x

  7. That eyeliner is the BEST. It's so black but the gloss makes it less harsh, my favourite eyeliner ever. Only downside is if you go over a spot twice it sort of erases itself.

    Sweet as cocoa was my first MAC blush, it's beautiful but is quite shimmery so I avoided on a spotty day =( which is most days.. lol
