New purchases

So I have been really good so far this year and saving! But I relapsed and went a bit mad this last week or 2. So to take the guilt off I'll share my lovely purchases with you so you can see for yourself that it was money well spent. (Convincing myself here)

Firstly with some new makeup. Now I was in desperate need of a new foundation and was going to try something new but returned to an old favourite by the French brand Vichy and their derma blend fluid corrective foundation 16hr in 25 nude as I have been putting tan on so this colour is a good match for my skin at the moment. I love this as it is great coverage and lasts all day! 
Next is a primer which I've never use myself on a daily basis, I have obviously had it put on me for shoots etc. where they would use mac or illamasqua so I've gone for a cheap alternative just to try it out, see if it makes any difference to my application. Well I can say it makes my sling feel velvety soft but for actually smoothing the base this one doesn't do it for me, it was the collection primed and ready smoothing makeup primer. 
Another item was the collection lasting perfection concealer 16hr wear and this stuff is so thick it has great coverage especially for my under eye bags and I have also been using it to highlight too so I really love this product. 
Now I have to say I have a lipstick obsession and ended up buying another, this is from collection again. A lovely light pink colour it is super creamy and moisturising which is great for this time of year when it is still cold. This is collection deluxe in 02 called tallulah. In love, just need to get the other colours now!! 
This next purchase wasn't exactly something I thought I needed but it is the La Roche - Posay effaclar duo, a corrective unclogging care anti-imperfections anti- marks face cream and vows to clear skin or get your money back. It is a best seller for this company and is a new and improved version of this so I hope this reduces any redness I have from previous acne and prevents any red marks from spots I get.
I'll let you know how this one go's because it is still in the early days of seeing any difference. Fingers crossed.
