Cult Beauty Makeup Haul..

A few weeks ago I was feeling really fed up with everything in my makeup bag, I was wearing the same products everyday and wasn’t really enjoying the end result. I decided I’d have a little refresh and treat myself to some new products that I’d been wanting to try for a while. Everything I got was from Cult Beauty because I feel like that’s my go-to place to get my favourite brands all under one roof. Here’s what I got..

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Genius Powder 

So this order was placed around 4 weeks ago now and I can honestly say I’ve wore this powder every single day since. It’s similar in ways to everyone’s fave Laura Mercier Translucent powder but it feels as though it’s more finely milled, meaning it’s more (in my opinion) perfecting and less drying on the skin. I only really use it in my T-Zone because that’s where I’m the oiliest and need it the most but It’s also fab for using to set under the eyes. It doesn’t leave them creased and although I just pat it on lightly with a brush, the powder can be built up if you prefer to bake. Ive seen some people say this powder has a funny smell but I can’t say I particularly noticed (and I’m funny about smells ha!). This is definitely a staple in my makeup bag now. 

Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer in the shade Vanilla

I’m probably the only person who thinks this but the Nars Creamy concealer just didn’t work for me. My under eye circles used to crease so much and it seemed as though my makeup separated a bit with it on. I was a bit sceptical of buying this one for that reason but omg it’s completely different and I love it so much. My dark circles have always been something I’ve struggled with hiding, more so after having Rosie because I don’t have a sleep after work anymore (crying emoji). I apply this using my finger but as I said in my last Nars post I’m still on the look out for a brush to apply it with. It’s so easy to just pat into the skin and instantly covers any discolouration. Love love love. 

Nars Velvet shadow sticks - shades Goddess and Corfu

I’ve been undecided on purchasing these for honestly over a year now. I always think are they a bit expensive seeing as you only get the one shade, which I suppose they are a bit, but I gave in and bought the two shades I’ve been obsessed with for a while. They are really creamy and blend out so easy. I like cream shadows because you don’t necessarily have to do a lot of work with them. I just draw a couple of lines on to my eye lid with these and then either use my finger to buff them out or use a fluffy brush in a circular motion to blow them out a bit. So easy and so quick to use. I bought shades that I’d happily wear alone but also could go with a lot of other shadows in my collection as base or transition shades. 

Zoeva Luxe Soft Crease Brush (221) 

I’d been wanting a new blending brush for ages and when I saw this I knew that it was exactly what I’d been looking for. The brush hairs are so soft and not packed too tight so you can blend with ease. I’ve had Zoeva brushes before so I knew it would be fab! 

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting powder 

If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll know a couple of years ago I bought the Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette and I was obsessed with this particular shade. I still use the palette now but I only have blush and highlights left in it. I knew I loved this powder but I wanted something small because the Genius Powder is such a big container, this travel size Ambient Light is perfect for sticking in my bag and for travelling. I love this powder because it doesn’t just set your makeup it gives your skin light and completely brightens your complexion. It’s been a fave for ages now so I’m glad I’ve repurchased it. 

Have you ordered from cult beauty recently? If so what did you get? Xx
