Impulse Beauty Buys

impulse beauty buys

I do love picking up new things on a bit of a whim as there's something so exciting about getting it all home and testing it out. Over the last few weeks I've picked up a few things that I've had on my list for ages, as well as a new beauty release. So today I thought I'd share them with you.

The only product here that's not a first purchase is the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Hands down, nothing beats this on drying time and it leaves the most glossy, hardwearing finish. I can literally paint my nails, apply a coat of Seche Vite and go to bed 20 minutes later. No more duvet marks and funny little dents! The only thing with this topcoat is that it does go gloopy after a while, hence the repurchase. It's also a lot cheaper on Amazon so head over there if you want to pick one up.

I'm really self conscious about my under eye bags and am always on the hunt for correctors and concealers to hide those bad boys and to fake some extra sleep. Dior have released a range of correctors as part of their autumn 2016 'Skyline' range which I have been super intrigued by. I picked up the Dior Fix It Colour 2-In-1 Prime & Colour Correct - Face-Eyes-Lip in 200 Apricot, with the hope that it will help cancel out my green blue discolouration. I'm yet to use this, but when swatched the formula is super creamy and blendable - I have great hopes! If you're unsure about colour correcting and which shade to go for, Escentual have a great post on their site which explains everything - I highly recommend reading it.

To set the Dior corrector I picked up the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. This has been out of stock forever so I was worried I'd missed it completely, but my patience worked out in the end. It's a super finely milled translucent powder which sets and brightens the skin, perfect for under the eye! I'm hoping I can keep this in my bag and use on the go without throwing most of it down myself. Only time will tell...

You're probably all too aware that I do love a good lipstick, but up until this week I've never owned one from YSL. The shock, the horror! Anyway, this had to be turned around so I picked up a YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 44 Nude Lavalliere. It's a gorgeous my lips but better shade with a little pinky kick and I'm super excited to wear it. The formula of the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine range is so sheeny and moisturising so I think it's going to be quite comfortable to wear on my parched lips.

No makeup haul is complete without a little foundation addition, and I've wanted this since it was released. The Make Up Forever Ultra HD Stick Foundation is so travel friendly, and as I do my makeup on the train to work I really wanted to pick it up and see if it made my life easier. It's supposed to be a second skin invisible foundation, although it has a bit of dew to it. My skin is still a little dry for foundation, but as soon as things are a bit more settled I'll be wearing this as much as I can. Stay tuned to see what I think of all of my new purchases.

What have you picked up recently?
