Beauty Haul | Revolution, Benefit, Estee Lauder & Filorga

I feel like apart from getting ready to go on holiday I don't tend to buy lots of beauty products at once, however this month I've bought a few different products and brands without quite realising. Some items have been repurchases, others are new to me and a couple are hyped up products. I thought I'd share my beauty haul today before considering which ones are worthy of a review...
Makeup Revolution is fast becoming my go-to makeup brand. I've declared my love for their 
Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer before and while I went in to repurchase my beloved C3 shade (while it was actually in stock, which isn't very often!) I was sucked in by Superdrug's 3 for 2 offers. Revolution is already really reasonably priced but I thought I'd take the chance to try a few new products that I've seen mentioned on Instagram. I've got a couple of high-end makeup setting sprays but I wanted to put Makeup Revolution Pro Fixing Spray to the test considering it's only £5 compared to the £24 price tag of Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. I've tried it a couple of times since buying it and it's made a good first impression on me. Another buzz word in the beauty world is baking. I've watched a few videos and been intrigued by the setting process for a while but never done anything about it. When I spotted the Makeup Revolution Lace Baking Powder I thought it was a good opportunity to try it out without wasting too much money if I can't get a hang of the process.  

I've caved! I've finally bought a Benefit BADgal Bang Mini Mascara. When this cult mascara came out I managed to resist the hype and avoid jumping on the bandwagon because I had eyelash extensions and plans for Russian Volume Lashes in time for my hen weekend. That was over a month ago now and they're slowly all falling out and I'm going to have to start wearing eye makeup again soon. I had a House of Fraser voucher burning a hole in my purse and in the process of spending it I needed to buy something else to get free delivery (does anyone else refuse to pay for postage?!). I didn't go for the full size £21.50 mascara just in case I didn't like it; there's been quite mixed reviews.  

Another beauty product that's hard to avoid is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Foundation. I say that but I actually love it too and I've been using it as my 'night out/special occasion' foundation for a few years now. This one ended up being a bit of a bargain though. I found, what I think is my shade, 1W1 Bone in The Cosmetics Company Store in Livingston Designer Outlet. Instead of the usual £32.50 price tag this foundation was only £22.75. I couldn't pass it up and knew I'd be wearing it quite a lot over the next few months with so many events and special occasions on the horizon. If you've got a Cosmetics Company Store near you I'd highly recommend going in to see what goodies you can find, they stock MAC, Clinique, Smashbox and Origins amongst others and you can make quite a good saving on some of their best selling products.

My last beauty purchase is a skincare buy that's a bit new to my routine. I've been moaning about my under eye area for ages to the point where tear trough fillers were actually considered. I thought it's about time I got a proper eye cream instead and spent some time researching to find my best option. The one that seemed to come up trumps was Filorga Time-Filler Eyes cream. I've been applying it everyday since it arrived and I'm not sure if it's making any difference but eye cream isn't a quick fix and I need to remember that. The Time-Filler eyes cream has peptide and botox-like ingredients and it's meant to minimise lines, wrinkles, under-eye hollows all whilst fading dark circles and uneven skin tone. I'm hopeful and know it was about time I invested in a good eye cream, I'm not getting any younger!
