Mini haul from

Some of you may or may not know, but in 2018 I have been doing a complete no buy where I don’t buy any makeup products at all; more information and why I’m crazy enough to do that is in this video. As we approach the latter part of the year I’ve found myself running low on the essentials but thankfully offered me a selection of their products to review and it was like they could read my mind. I’ve got two amazing makeup products to talk about today, so I hope you enjoy finding out more about them.

The Original Beauty Blender:

If you all had a pound for every time someone raved about this then I’m sure you’d be able to enjoy a very wealthy retirement but for me, it really is a game changer for my base makeup. Even if I use a brush, I always go over the product with a damp sponge to soak up any excess and push foundation into my skin for an all over more natural finish. Some people may find it’s a tad too expensive but as I write this post, have it on sale for only £13.29; they often have sales running on loved cosmetics brands so it’s definitely one to bookmark as you search to replace your favourite products. I am so pleased to have a replacement in my collection and find these often last me anywhere between 2-3 months so should take me to the end of the year perfectly.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD powder

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Powder:

Can you believe that up until now I’ve been a Make Up For Ever virgin? I know, even with the hype of their foundation and powders, this is the first product from the brand I’m trying out for myself. I chose the powder in translucent as I thought it was the most universal and I didn’t want to choose an incorrect shade. So far this has done wonders to my under eye area when setting concealer and really has left an airbrushed finish and I say that with confidence as I never thought a makeup product could actually do that. The reason it can is that it’s made to be used in front of HD/4K cameras and I love pore filling/ bag hiding products the most. I’m truly hooked on the result and now find myself creating a wishlist on the site to buy as soon as my makeup spending ban is over.

Needless to say, I am very thankful for the gifts from and would like to take a moment to recommend them to you all as their prices are amazingly competitive if not cheaper in a lot of areas, their shipping was super fasted and tracked and their product selection is phenomenal. I love finding little online treasures like this and recommend you all check them out for your next beauty fix.
