Mini Feel Unique Haul




Okay. Okay. NOW I am on a spending ban. When www,feelunique.co.uk launched their boxing day sales there were a few things on there (and I really do mean a few) that I had to grab whilst the sale was on.



Firstly my skin has been the mots outrageously dry it has ever been this winter. My skin tends to always get worse once I go back to Switzerland, mostly because my parents are adamant to having the heating on in the house all the time. After speaking to my friend from the States who I basically go for all my advice on skin care, she suggested the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Right. I have been using it for 3 days now and somehow, SOMEHOW it is a miracle worker. When I talk about dry skin I really mean (TMI warning), full out flakey gross crusting nasty stuff that just looks awful with foundation. I finished up my Kiehl's ultra moisturizer but it hadn't really had the effect that this hydration skin has had. One of the best things about it is that it is also fragrance free and great for sensitive skin. Right up my alley! Honestly guys, I cannot recommend this enough if you feel as if you are never going to get back to normal skin.



Secondly I saw this gorgeous NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream on Twitter and I knew I just had to have it. You know how it is. I feel like once Christmas and New Years had gone, I had to step into more pinkies and nudes rather than my berry and red lipsticks. Ibiza is a gorgeous shade, a mixture between fuscia and punch. The staying power is incredibly impressive and have been wearing it with a nice neutral eye to bring a bit of colour! I can see this becoming a staple in the Spring and Summer time!

Lastly was my forever ending issue of eyeliner. I have been struggling to find the perfect eyeliner that doesn't run or smudge under my eyes mid-way through the day. Pencil eyeliners are out of the question because I hate the scratchy eye feeling *shudder* and my hand is not steady enough to branch into the world of liquid liner. I hadn't heard much about the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner but reading the reviews made me excited to try it. I am in love. Yes, I know it's a liquid liner but the application tip is like a beautiful thin paint brush. This has thrown out the Loreal Super Liner (it was rubbishly under-pigmented on top of eyeshadow) and this is beautiful. No smudging and easy application.

Overall I am so happy with this mini haul of all the necessities I needed to start off the New Year. Yes. Necessities. Did you pick up anything in the sales beauty wise? Let me know!

  1. The Maybelline eye liner is one my all time favourite liquid liners.. Its so easy to use! You've totally sold me on me the First Aid moisturiser, i'm of to make an order next! I didn't by anything in the sales but I've been buying loads throughout January. I just made a NYX order today with a few matte lip cremes, which I am now so excited to use! Thanks for sharing :) xx
