I have had such a wonderful afternoon shopping at Cabot circus. All my make up supplies have been running low recently, so when Cabot Circus got in touch to see if I would like to work with them to hunt out my top beauty products for the Autumn/Winter trends, I was super excited. Before I left I downloaded the Cabot Circus PLUS app, as it has interactive maps and heaps of offers on it!
When I got to Cabot Circus, I headed straight for House of Fraser and was greeted with so many helpful members of staff on the beauty floor. I love going to the beauty counters of all the different brands. I like to chat to the girls that know their products, to get different opinions, and try out different things. I’m just starting to invest a lot more in make-up brands so I want to know that I’m buying the right ones for me. A matte berry lipstick is my go-to, I headed straight to Nars to check out their new lipstick collection. I got chatting with the lovely Yasmin, who showed me their great range of dark berry reds and deep terracotta matte lipsticks.
I couldn’t resist checking out the Benefit counter. I was chatting to the sales girls to see what they thought of the new ‘They’re Real’ graphic eyeliner. I’ve been meaning to add a new black eyeliner to my make-up bag for a while. I was shown how to use it, a good tip is to pinch the end to make the nib finer and dab the clumpy bit on the back of your hand. This product does take a bit of practice getting used to, but it’s a great consistency and isn’t going anywhere once it’s dry! It hasn’t smudged all day! I couldn’t have fabulous cat eyes without having massive eyelashes, so I also picked up the roller lashes too. Everyone’s been raving about it since it came out and on first impression it is THAT good.
I also wanted to introduce more metallics for autumn/winter, eyeshadow in particular. I’ve been using the same old boring shade for so long so I think it’s time to add something new. I looked at the bareMinerals pots. I couldn’t decide between all the shades, as they’re all lovely and feel beautiful too. I went for a metallic taupe shade, which has a gold shimmer to it.
I’m so pleased with my purchases, and I can’t wait to spice up my face as my wardrobe starts to change colour, just like the autumn leaves!
