chanel lipstick and charlotte tilbury blush haul

{Beauty  buys}

Since I’ve been back in the UK I’ve spent an obscene amount of ££ on beauty products. I know, I know. What’s new? Being back home means easy access to wonderfully British brands – two of which are featured in today’s post.

Read on to see my recent spurge…

sephora pantone universe radiant orchid 2014 collection

{Sephora + Pantone: Radiant Orchid}

Don’t get me wrong, I adored last year’s choice of Emerald for the colour of the year but 2014 has it so much better in my eyes. Radiant Orchid is the shade on everyone’s lips and if you haven’t noticed already, Sephora are dedicating a LOT of floor space to celebrate it. Even if you’re not in to trends, this robust collection of vibrant purple against hues of cream and soft pink are rounding out my make up drawers perfectly for spring and summer.

{Pretty, purple packaging}

Behold! Shiny, purple packaging worthy of leaving on display.

radiant orchid paint gloss trio nail ambrosia

{Nail Ambrosia Trio to match the Radiant Paint Gloss Trio}

Sold Separately the Nail Ambrosia Trio ($24) and Paint Gloss Trio ($31) are some of my favourite picks when it comes to quality and value. The texture of this lip product reflects it’s name, the finish is opaque and paint like but smells heavenly and feels like butter on the lips. The nails to match…why not?

Radiant Paint Gloss Trio

{Paint Gloss trio and Gazing Paint Liquid Eyeliner}

Like the Paint Gloss Trio the liquid eyeliners in this collection offer an opaque sweep of purple and pink (the latter shade is exclusive to The Face kit)  hues.

{The radiant orchid “subtle” look}

Well…subtle enough to a beauty addict :p

radiant orchid matte lipstick

{Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick}

You know me. I can’t say no to a matte, rich lippie and this Radiant Rush Matte Lipstick ($22) is no exception. Decadent in it’s texture and shade, my biggest problem with this baby is that my sister keeps stealing it from me…

radiant orchid cream blush

{Cream Blush as part of The Face: Radiant Femme Artistry Set}

Ah, le sigh. If you want to get your hands on this creamy blush that literally melts on to your skin then you’ll have to purchase The Face: Radiant Femme Artistry Set but it contains the lipstick among others so I’d say it’s well worth the $90.

The Eye- Radiant Femme Artistry Set

{The Eye: Radiant Femme Artistry Set}

I’m not an eye shadow kinda gal but this macbook-like palette made me squeal – mainly because of the three sets of colours that make up the top right corner. Romantic to daring it’s got all the shades you would need for any look.

Radiant Femme Artistry Set

{My favourite combo 1: creams and soft pink}

Delicious like ice cream.

The Eye Radiant Femme Artistry Set

{My favourite combo 2: mahogany and navy}

Esmeralda herself would have worn these.
