Beauty Buys: Essie, Illamasqua, Real Techniques & L'Oreal

I have currently been doing a fair amount of online shopping (I blame it on being ill & cooped up at home with nothing to do). Last week I bought the below Essie nail polishes from Fragrance Direct for a whopping £1.99 each. Bargain or what? Considering they retail for £7.99. Unfortuantely I went back to the site a few days later to order some for my sister but they had sold out on nearly all of the colours (sorry guys).

I know the nail polishes are bright and not in "Season" at the moment but I really don't like to follow rules and I always love a bright nail colour on my nails all year round.


Essie - Bikini So Teeny
Essie - Off the Shoulder
Essie - Lights
Essie - Bazooka
Essie - Orange It's Obvious


I decided that I would like to try a cream blush for the first time and the Illamasqua Cream Blushers seemed enticed me and because I love Illamasqua make up products as they are very pigmented and work well on all skin tones. I currently do not own that many Illamasqua products (which I hope to soon change) but when I did a make up course at AOFM a few years back we used a lot of Illamasqua make up and I had no complaints at all. 

After a bit of research on the net I also bought the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to use with my new cream blush. The L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes mascara is my favourite drugstore mascara (review here) so this was just a repurchase.
