New In | Blogger Mail & Things I've Picked Up Lately #4

I haven't done one of these posts since August so I'm back with a new one! As always I'm not writing this post to brag or anything at all, I do get sent things but I obviously buy a lot of beauty products within the space of a few months, so I guess it's kind of a sneak peek at what's new in my beauty stash and products which you're probably going to see featured on my blog at some point in the near future. 

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask 

I've been eyeing up this face mask for a while now, so when there was an offer on for 30% off I decided to pick it up and finally try it out. It smells very citrusy and uplifting and it does tingle a little once it's on, I also really like that you can tell when and where it's dried. It's quite an exfoliating scrub so it's kind of a 2-in-1 product, it is quite messy to remove it but I can see a difference in my skin right after using it because my skin feels so soft and it just looks radiant. So I would say if you're debating on buying this do it!

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Icons*
Probably the most exciting package I've received in my blogging journey so far - A PR package from Charlotte Tilbury! I've kind of been in shock about this since I got the email last month. I've never tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury before and I had already put a few products on my Christmas Wishlist because I wanted to kind of see what the hype is about. I received 2 things in my package including the Limited Edition Beauty Icons Box which contains 5 products inside  - Mini Magic Cream, Mini Full Fat Lashes Mascara, Mini Wonderglow, Mini K.I.S.S.I.N.G - Penelope Pink and Lip Cheat - Pillow Talk. I'm really looking forward to trying everything out and they'll be a blog post all about my first impressions of Charlotte Tilbury products in December.

Essence Moonlight Cream Eyeshadows & Fresh & Fit Foundation

Essence very kindly sent me over a lot of their new products recently to feature in my New Releases From Essence post. In the package, I received the new Moonlight Cream Eyeshadow in the shade 03 Cosmic* and I've also picked up the shade 04 Glided since and they are honestly a dream to work with. They're easy to blend and to build up the colour intensity and they are only £3 each. I also picked up the Fresh & Fit Foundation which I've been really liking recently too, it smells lovely and fresh and it's so good considering it's only £5!

Bloomtown The Grove* Infused Oil & The Rose Garden Infused Oil

I've not tried anything from Bloomtown before but they recently sent me a Christmas Bauble to feature in my upcoming Beauty Gift Guide and inside I received the Bloomtown The Grove Infused Oil and I really like it, it's a lovely, uplifting scent and it lasts a good amount of time on my skin. So I decided to pick up The Rose Garden Infused Oil too which has a light, powdery rose scent. I've really been enjoying using them both and I think they would make nice little stocking fillers for Christmas.

I Heart Makeup Chocolate Elixir Palette
This was on my recent Beauty Wishlist and guess what? I caved and bought it even though I'm trying to be on a spending ban for the next month so I can save up some money for the Christmas/Boxing Day sales. After watching this video, I realised that it is probably the best affordable dupe to the ABH Modern Renaissance right now and I just needed it in my life because I can't justify spending £43 on an eyeshadow palette rn (especially when the pans are so tiny too!).

I received some of the ImPRESS Gel Nails to feature in an upcoming (Christmas, woo!) blog post. I rarely wear false nails because I do find them a little annoying if I'm being totally honest but these are definitely my favourite to wear and they are so easy to apply when I do want/need to wear false nails. I like that there's a good choice of designs too and they don't break the bank.

Glossier Cloud Paints in shades Beam & Dusk
I did it. I jumped on the bandwagon and picked up a few things from Glossier when they came to the UK. I definitely picked up the Cloud Paints because of the cute, instagrammable packaging more so than anything. I also really like that Glossier is all about minimum, natural looking makeup because that's more my cup of tea. I have done a full review of the products I recently picked up here.

  1. So many lovely products here! I love the look of that eyeshadow palette, it looks so much like the ABH palette!
