Beauty Haul: OPI, Sleek, Lush, Real Techniques!

I have missed blogging so much and I'm so glad to be back! To mark my return, I thought you guys would like to see some beauty purchases I made in the Arndale Centre when I went to Manchester yesterday. I wasn't actually meant to be shopping but I couldn't resist a few of these beauty buys - I'm sure I'm in good company with that one!

OPI Nail Envy / £19.50
OPI Drip Dry / £13.95
Sleek Blush By 3 Palette in Pumpkin / £9.99

Recently, I ran out of my Holy Grail nail product, OPI Nail Envy, so of course I had to rush out to pick up a replacement. I swear by this product for my otherwise limp, short, brittle nails for adding not only length but strength and a gorgeous healthy sheen. It is so easy to use, applying it at the start of the week, and topping up every other day before starting over again the next week. A must-have!

At the OPI stand, I could not help but be distracted by the OPI Drip Dry, which a nail technician once used on my nails at the salon leaving my mani dry to the touch in under a minute! I've been meaning to buy one ever since so I'm glad I got around to it. I love the little pipette it comes with to drip onto your nails - ingenious and easy to use!

Ahhhh, Real Techniques, you know the way to my heart! I've had my eye on their Blush Brush for a while after being so impressed with the Core Collection, and I thought it would be nice to add some pink to the orange set. Testing it on my hand, this brush is sturdy, soft and a wonderful domed shape which fits perfectly on the apples of my cheeks. I tested it briefly and am impressed so far - I'll keep you posted!

Well, I couldn't really buy a blush brush without stocking up on a new blush now could I?! And what's better than one new blush? Of course; a palette of three! This Sleek palette is packaged really nicely - very simple - with a wonderful mirror on the inside. The shades in the Pumpkin palette are obnoxious to look at, but when swatched they are absolutely stunning! A full review will be posted on this very soon - spoiler: I love it!

As long-term readers of my blog may be aware, I always have to have something with tea tree in my skincare routine because it works so well on my combination skin to prevent breakouts. The Lush Tea Tree Water has great reviews online, so I was really keen to try it out. The spray bottle and fresh tingly feeling are working well for me so far.

Lastly, who doesn't love an eye cream?! Mine ran out recently and I was ready for a new venture into the eye cream world. I have my fingers crossed for the Lush Enchanted Eye Cream because, hey, it's enchanted!
What have you bought recently? I will be posting reviews on all of these products soon!
