Last Monday I was kindly invited to go to an event where products such as MAC, Bobbi Brown, Jo Malone, Tom Ford, Clinique to name just a few, are sold at discount – something I couldn’t possibly refuse. I may have made a rather large Sephora splurge the day before so I had to think my purchases through – at the least as best I could. Temptations were relatively high – just sayin’ …
Tom Ford Bronzing Powder Terra, €68
Pinch me in the cheeks – is this for real? I have been swooning over this bronzer but the price tag was something hard to swallow. Imagine the joy I felt when I saw this in store – imagine the last time you were happy and multiply it by three. I rushed over, swatched it, and a beautiful cool-toned brown made its appearance on the back of my hand. It’s tough to find a true matte, cool-toned bronzer as the majority tends to be way too reddish for my complexion so I couldn’t be happier with this utterly sleek compact – which is definitely the icing on the cake.
Tom Ford Eye Shadow Blending Brush, €45
Another Tom Ford purchase – sense my weakness? – is the Eye Shadow Blending Brush which made my knees weaken at every brushstroke. The brush is surprisingly dense rather than floppy, yet it blurs edges softly away. I can’t wait to get my hands on more Tom Ford brushes, shall I perhaps add it to my Christmas list? One can never have enough brushes …
Clinique Cheek Pop 02 Peach Pop, €21
Everyone has been raving about these Daisy-shaped blushes yet I’ve never seen them in stores. I was smitten at first glance … They definitely have a spring vibe to them but I honestly couldn’t resist. Vibrant in the pan but natural on the cheeks. Did I need another blush? Most certainly not. Am I happy with my acquisition? Totally, a peachy blush will always fit my blush drawer.
Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins, €44
This was actually thrown first into my shopping basket – without hesitation. The first jar must’ve been a real contender … A rather thick night cream that pleases my dry and dull skin wonderfully. The following morning I’m left with a soft, plump, and nourished complexion. I’m not the biggest fan of fragranced skincare, but this subtle citrusy scent is just extremely satisfying.
