You know when you're just feeling down and start window shopping online to cheer yourself up, but it turns into splurge after splurge? Yeah I've done that quite a few times this month. Ain't nothing wrong with putting yourself first sometimes! Aside from my MAC lipsticks and the occasional Nars pick, I've never really been one for high-end make-up. I tend to stick to drugstore buys, mainly for convenience, but I decided to test a few new things out! 

Viktor & Rolf, Flowerbomb 50ml £61.45 | Nails Inc, Westminster Bridge matte top coat £2.95

Flowerbomb is my absolute favourite perfume. It's such a perfect scent for me, fruity but musky and girly but not at the same time, plus, look how cute the packaging is! This was the catalyst for my splurge on I knew I needed a new bottle and my mum actually suggested the site because it sells everything at discount, so obviously I had to check it out. This bottle size (RRP £69) might not seem like the greatest saving, but every little helps right? And the savings on each product vary so much it's definitely worth a look.
I also got a Nails Inc matte top coat which I used in my recent Nail Update, which for less than a fifth of the price (RRP £15) was my favourite bargain. It works amazingly and is so much easier than buying all your favourite nail colours in a matte formulation!

Estee Lauder, Double Wear All-Day Glow BB £26.95 | YSL, Touche Eclat £22.50

As I mentioned, I've not tried many high-end products so these are both new to me. I'm not a big fan of full coverage foundations, especially for daily wear, and since the Estee Lauder double wear range is so popular I thought I'd try the BB Glow. I got this in Intensity 2.0 and I really love the consistency. 
The Touche Eclat is a product I've thought about getting for so long now! I'm always trying new concealers for under my eyes and I love a glowy make-up look so it seemed perfect for me. It's not the highest coverage (and doesn't claim to be) but it is a new glowy concealer and goes super well with the BB for a dewy everyday look!

Elizabeth Arden, 05 Ginger £6.99 | Estee Lauder, Rose Tea £5.99 | YSL, Satin/Shine Lip Duo £4.99

My favourite buys, however, are these 3 babies! I'm 100% a lipstick girl and am always looking for new shades to add to my collection. I picked these up on and they were such good bargains! The Elizabeth Arden and Estee Lauder ones are RRP £21 and the YSL £24.99! So I was obviously very happy with what I paid. The EA shade is a really nice orange/slightly berry toned nude while the EL shade is more pinky, very similar to MAC Whirl. The YSL duo consists of a satin lip colour in a dark berry shade and a nude gloss to go with. They're all super nice consistency and long-lasting formulas, I'd definitely recommend checking out the site, the stock is constantly rotating.
