It’s been a while since I shopped on Feel Unique, I’ve become a pretty dedicated fan of some brands on Beauty Bay over the past 18 months and haven’t shopped a lot from elsewhere. When a 20% offer popped up through my phone networks scheme I decided to check it out as I knew a blanket 20% off everything was a pretty rare occurance on Feel Unique!
After going on a hunt for Urban Decay’s Velvetizer (which they still don’t stock for the record), I decided to pick up just three things, one of which was a need – the other two were on my ‘temptations’ list from July when I was on my No Buy and the 20% off offer was too good to refuse.
So let’s start with what I needed, which was a makeup brush cleaner, my brushes have all turned the same murky shade of brown and I’ve not had chance to clean them properly when I haven’t had to wait a day or two for them to all dry out properly. The high street’s options on spot brush cleaners is seriously limited and the ones I’ve tried either aren’t very easy to get hold of if they’re good (e.g the Freedom Brush Cleanser) or they’re terrible like the NYX spot brush cleaner. This one from Pro Hygiene Collection was really well rated and I decided to give it a try, there was two sized bottles of this and I decided to get the bigger one as it was almost double in size, at £10 (£8 with the discount) it’s not a cheap option but I decided it was worth a try. I’ve already cleaned all my brushes with it, and they’ll be a review up Friday!
Next up was a couple more of the Stila Magnificent Metals eyeshadows, I’ve spoken about my love of the rose gold retro one a lot (review here) and had been wanting to add a couple more shades to my line up as I adore that one. After a lot of online searching I decided on Gold Goddess and Smouldering Satin. Swatched Gold Goddess is kinda sheerer than the other two and I think it might need to be layered over a gold to make sure it’s as opaque as the others, but it’s more of a pure glitter so I can forgive that. Smouldering Satin is a cooler toned brown with a intense silver sparkle. If you want an easy way to wear glitter, then the Stila Magnificent Metals is the way to go, I’m dying to get my hands on the coloured duochrome versions of this but they still only seem to be available in Sephora and are always out of stock online, I’m going to be asking my sister to be keeping her eye out whilst she is in the US for them for me! Or if any of my US friends can find them and want to do a swap please let me know!
Because I spent over £30 I was able to pick 2 samples, I decided to pick out the Glam Glow Thirsty Mud pack as we all know I love a face mask and the only mask I’ve tried from Glam Glow was the original one, and wasn’t that impressed so decided getting a sample of another was a good way to go. The second item I picked up was the Clinique Mositure Surge Intense version – I’ve tried the original Moisture surge several times in the past and whilst I know it has it’s loyal band of followers I’ve never been besotted with it, so I thought I’d give the more intense version a try.
So that’s it, told ya it was a mini one! Please let me know if you have any high street favourites for brush cleaners, both spot and normal – my favourite deep cleaner Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap seems to have disappeared from everywhere, my local tesco used to have it, ASOS has discontinued it and I always used to be able to find it in TK Maxx and I’ve not seen it in months!
