Recent Purchases # 3

I flew home to Paris yesterday and I made a few beauty purchases at the airport (duty-free and all) because my boyfriend (kindly) dropped me off a little early.

Clarins Ever Matte Shine Control Mineral Powder Compact in 01 Transparent Fair
 I have wanted to try this since EssieButton raved about it a while back. I just finished my Rimmel Stay Matte powder and I have never been a huge fan so I thought I would try something different. This has a really buttery smooth texture - it kind of reminds me of how the Burberry Eyeshadows feel. There is another light shade in Transparent Opal but that one was more pink toned and this one is a lot more yellow, which I find more flattering. 

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
Mascara tends to smudge on my bottom lashes so I thought I would try this and see if it would last a little better. I have put a picture of the brush at the bottom of this post so you can see how tiny the wand is!

Boots Botanics Cleansing All Bright Toner
I left my toner at home and this is a good, simple toner that I have tried before. I find I get a lot more blemishes if I don't use a toner so it's a must have in my world.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 51 Light Vanilla
This is the new formula and I have never actually tried the old one so I have nothing to compare it to unfortunately. However, I do absolutely love the Healthy Mix Serum and this shade looks like it will work well for me.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer in 51 Light Vanilla
Again, I have heard great things about this concealer and Bourjois was on 3 for 2 so you know... (I also got my sister the above foundation because I'm a sweetheart).

L'Oréal Telescopic Mascara
I have never tried this - I tend to go for volumising mascaras but I thought it would be nice to have the option of a lengthening mascara. I also want to know if it is worth the hype!

Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara
One of my favourite mascaras of all time, it gives great volume and length without clumping. I did a post on this here if you want to know more about it.
