Two New Treats

Another week, yet another new makeup purchase. And this week, there are two of them. I'm terrible, I know. But hear me out.

After buying the MAC lipstick for my competition winner in August I got on a bit of a hype and decided I needed more of the vanilla-scented lovelies to add to my stash. I've been pouring and swatching since. Finally I settled on Dangerous, a gorgeous in-your-face orange red from the new Retro Matte range. Damn, I want all of those babies. You'd think I'd be happy with this new £15 lipstick, but nope. I have my eye on another that I'm probably gonna be getting soon. Someone please stop me.

While I was wandering around Selfridges I thought I'd take a stroll on over to the NARS counter. I've been after one of their creamy concealers for a long time after using my friend's sparingly each time I went over. Convinced I was the much sought after Vanilla shade I wasn't expecting much. However, on arrival the lovely lady suggested that, although they had no Vanilla of course, perhaps Chantilly would be more my shade. And hell, she was right. A shade lighter than the famous Vanilla, Chantilly gives me the same fantastic coverage while also adding a bit of brightness and highlight to my face - the perfect 2-in-1. I'm still keeping my eyes peeled for the Vanilla shade for when I just need the full spot coverage but for now I'm tucking my purse away. After all, I did just spend £21 on a concealer...

I will be doing full reviews and looks with both of these beauties after I've had a little more use out of them so keep your eyes peeled!
