New to My Beauty Stash #2

If you read my previous New to My Beauty stash, you'll have probably spotted (between this one and that one) that I'm going through a Barry M phase. It's easily accessible, cheap and (for the most part) works. Plus, they have some new products that I just had to try out. 

The first I wanted to try was the Matte Me Up Lit Kit. The shades are loud and are more appropriate for going out. Since I'm living a much quieter life these days, I decided to only purchase one, which was the shade Go To - a brown shade that I can still pull off during the day (especially in autumn). I've already given it a little whirl. I love how opaque it is but it definitely doesn't last as long as the adverts insist it does (I'd say two hours max). 

That wasn't the only new-ish Barry M product that made its way into my shopping cart. I also picked up the Lash Saver lash primer. I know, I know. This product is a total gimmick. But Barry M are one of my favourite brands and I had to give it a try. It does actually help my mascara stay on a bit longer, but not enough longer that I'd recommend we all go out and purchase it (just get yourself a really good mascara that doesn't need a primer!). 

Finally from Barry M, I purchased their Cosmic Lights Highlighting Palette. The shades in here are absolutely gorgeous and a quick swatch on my pale skin showed that they matched my tone perfectly. I've not had a chance to try them out properly as I haven't been anywhere where I'd make lots of effort with my make-up, but I can definitely see this becoming an evening make-up staple. 

Moving away from Barry M, and I finally added a Blending Sponge to my collection (late to the party, I know). I opted for the B. Precision Blending Sponge and I have to confess it's still in the packet. Some people might shriek but I'm very much a fingers girl when it comes to my foundation, and only opt for brushes when I'm using powdered make-up. The single reason I purchased this is so I can up my under-eye concealer game (I have prominent dark circles that I can never seem to fully cover) and improve my contouring skills. 

On to hair care now, and I decided to give the Noughty range a try. I first spotted it ages ago but me and natural hair care have never gotten along. I've actually been using this for a solid fortnight now, and have to say I am impressed. I use it for my second wash, and it foams up nicely and my hair feels perfectly clean but not stripped of all oils (I have oily hair, and wash my hair either daily or every second day. I can't do third day hair). 

Finally, I thought I would throw in my routine antiperspirant purchase. I've been using the Superdrug roll-on for a few years now and I don't think I'd ever use anything else. If you still need a vegan deodorant, I'd completely recommend it. 

What have you been purchasing this month?
