Boxing Day Beauty Buys

My Boxing Day Beauty Buys

On boxing day, as we do each year, we went shopping of course for all the huge savings. This year I bought a few items of clothing and I had to drag ourselves in to House of Fraser for all the make up counters. Now the make up counters didn't actually have any sales on but I had my eye on a few things for a few weeks and I thought i'd treat myself to some new goodies!

The first one that I really wanted was the Benefit High Beam highlighter. Its almost like a nail varnish that you use on your face. I have been looking for a good highlighter for a while as I go quite heavy on the bronzer as I like to shape my cheek bones but it always means that I am left looking a little dull. 
This little pot of light is amazing! Just one stroke of the brush on each apple of the cheek and a bit above my brow and my face is left looking so radiant and fresh! I'm pretty sure this one only comes in one shade but it mixes in really well with my skin tone so I would recommend this to anyone who would just like that little lift! I think it was around £19.50, a little pricey but it would last a long time as you only have to use the slightest stroke and it is definitely worth it!

The second item I bought was something that I wasn't desperate for. Just a bit intrigued as to what it would be like to use something slightly different on my eyebrows. The item was the Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper and Touch Up in the shade Hazelnut. I normally use a standard pencil on my eyebrow as I find it easier to add shape if I need to touch up the ends and extend them a little, but I thought there must be a better way to get the bold colour in the main brow. So I was willing to try this which is like a mascara for your eyebrows which mimics the hair and adds colour. I really like the product as it is super quick and easy to use. The only down side to it is that it is harder to create shape with it as it is such a big brush compared to a pencil head. So if you already have perfectly pruned eyebrows and just want to add a bit of colour, this is perfect for you. I think this cost me around £16.00 so again a little pricey but its not something I would use every day as I don't like my brows too defined for my day job. 

Did you treat yourself to any make up this christmas? Have you tried either of these items? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear!
