Escentual Haul – Real techniques brushes and Nuxe

I’m sooo glad I stumbled across the Escentual sale whilst I had a bit of money to spend on myself as the items I got were things I’ve wanted for quite a long time now (the brushes made worse by loving the shading brush I got from fiona in the blog swap).

Sorry for the not great photograph, was a bit of a hurried morning and I should’ve taken it out of the packet to avoid the plastic glare. But, never mind, yay the real techniques eye brush set!! This is the set that got me looking at real techniques in the first place but I always talked myself out of it. When Fiona sent me the shading brush in our blog swap I just Knew I needed to get the set as eye shadow is something I struggle with and I felt that these brushes would help a Lot. Soo when I saw them in the Escentuals sale for £16.79, rather than the £22ish pounds they normally are (yup more bargains!) the decision was pretty much made for me.

I’ve heard soo much about Nuxe’s Reve de Miel lip balm, I’ve wanted to try it for ages but have never been able to justify more than £9 on lip balm. So when I saw it for £5.70 in the Escentuals sale it just seemed like the perfect opportunity. Of course, now, I’ve tried it, and love it, so I have to hope I find it in many more sales again in the future! And don’t forget to check out which is the official Nuxe uk website to check out other fantastic products and offers from the fantastic brand.

    Was a real stroke of good luck 🙂 And the balm, too, it's so raved about but I know some don't get on with it so £9 is a lot when I might not have liked it. Turns out I Love it, though, having to stop myself using it too much as I want to make it last! Xx

      Safe to say I'm already loving it. I've had it a few days and it's soo good. I've not found regular uses for all of them but the base brush and the massive blending/contour ones are fab. Applying base shadow seems prettt standard, but compared to my normal brushes this one makes it a dream xx
