So over the past few weeks I have had a bit of a splurge on make-up and have bought a fair few items, most of which are new to me and have been recommended, a couple are key favourites that I always repurchase when I run out. 

As there are quite a few products I'm going to go through them quite briefly or I think this post would take you a year to get through! 

Firstly I went to Debenhams to the YSL counter and got hold of my favourite base; Touche Eclat Foundation. This is perfect for me, the coverage is medium but can be built up if you're having a bad skin day or just want a more flawless look. It has the same technology as their famous illuminator so gives a fresh glow that I especially like during spring and summer. It is a more expensive foundation at £30.50 but it lasts for ages and is worth every penny! (available here)
Along with my foundation I also bought a lipgloss from the YSL range, this is mainly because I am an absolute sucker for pretty packaging and this just looked too beautiful to put down, the shade I got was 'Rose Jersey 202' which I can't find online but will link to the other shades here

I also bought a few other lip products recently, a Mac lipstick in Coral Bliss which is a soft orange coral that looks really pretty with bronze make up. I picked up two of the Tanya Burr glosses as I fell in love with her nail varnishes and wanted to give them a try, the shades I got were 'Chic' and 'Exotic Island' they are probably my favourite products that I have bought and deliver everything I could want from a gloss, plus with them being exclusive to Superdrug I just couldn't help myself! The last lip related product that I bought was from Bourjois which is one of their Colour Boost lipsticks that are basically their version of a chubby stick, I got this in the shade 'Peach on the Beach'. 

L-R.  Mac: Coral Bliss.. Bourjois: Peach on the Beach.. YSL: Rose Jersey.. Tanya Burr: Chic, Exotic Island. 
The Bourjois range has been one of my most purchased over the past few months as their products never let me down and really suit my skin. As previously mentioned I bought one of their Colour Boost Lipsticks, along with the Healthy Mix foundation, two of their 1 second nail varnishes in the shades, 'Sunny Sunday' and 'Lavande Esquisse', their Superdrug 50th birthday blush and their finishing powder (Poudre de Riz). I am enjoying using all of these products and would definitely call Bourjois my favourite drugstore brand. 

Finally I bought two Revlon products, a Real Techniques brush and yet another Tanya Burr nail varnish. The two items I got from Revlon were their Photo Ready Primer and the highlighter that has been all over the blogs in 'Rose Glow'. I finally managed to get hold of the Retractable Bronzing Brush from my work as it has been sold out for ages! The same for the Tanya Burr polish in 'Midnight Sparkles' which I made sure to get my hands on as soon as it came back into stock! 

That is the end of my beauty haul post, I have also had a slight haul with clothing aswell (oops!) which I am hoping to upload over the next couple of days. Thankyou for reading, please leave me a comment about any products that you can recommend or if you have used anything that I have mentioned. 

Have a great day!
