I love wasting my money on beauty products, either new launches or something I've lusted over for months. Not being able to bring myself to pay full price for something unless I've read countless reviews and wanted it for several months, but other than that I usually search different sites for many hours at one time for a must-have bargain. 
There's always a bargain to be had, right?

I've been lusting over the Tarte Amazionan Clay Airbrush Foundation for a while now, and to go with this I need the Tarte Foundation Brush, Obviously! I chose to go with the bigger Foundation Brush just because I prefer I bigger handle rather than a tiny kabuki brush kind-of-thing! 
I couldn't get over how cute this Bobbi Brown Eye Palette is. With Eight gorgeous shades, tortoise shell packaging and of course in mini version I was completely sold. (I can't handle the cuteness!)
Everyone but me has the Hourglass Blush Palette, yet again, the blush shades are stunning and a set like this is a staple item to have in your stash. 
I was scrolling through a concealer I hadn't already heard of and stumbled across the Make up Forever Camouflage Palette, this one is for lighter skin tones but I chose this one as apposed to the light to medium palette because this one has the green tone rather than a blue, the green with work against my blue-y, purple under eyes. 
Something I am in need of for sure!

I know what you're thinking, why Kate why! Is it me or is it too early to talk about the greatest of all that is in-fact winter and Christmas time, I'm feeling extra festive recently. Now I'm thinking about it, maybe it is too early, oh well! I'm excited for winter, I'm excited for so much because this time of year is the time that alot of goings-on are happening.

1. My Birthday in November, I'm so excited for my birthday as it's just around the corner and of course it's a big one!

2. Cosy Nights in, this is what Winter is all about especially if I have comfy pyjama's and thick bed socks. The Fire's burning away beautifully, I'm just chilling snuggled under a blanket with my pj's and a good film on.

3. Scarf weather, you know what I'm talking about, technically it's scarf weather now but as it gets colder my scarves tend to get bigger and thicker! I love wearing big, thick scarves during the colder months, they make a big statement to any outfit. 

4. Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Cuppa Soups... Any Hots drinks make an appearance when it gets colder outside, I currently have a cuppa soup on the go. Costa Coffee Christmas menu is the best and Gingerbread Latte's are my favourite when I'm buried underneath a big, tartan scarf with my woolly gloves on all snuggled up. 

5. PRESENTS! Who isn't excited for presents, whether it's receiving them or giving, I'm excited for both. I love finding the perfect gift for someone and making everything look beautifully presented all wrapped up with a pretty little bow to top everything off. 

6. The wellies are dusted off and the Beanie hat is ready is make an appearance, just sayin'! 

7. PLEASE SANTA; LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IS SNOW! (Oh god, the festive feeling is strong!)

8. The Perfect Winter Coat is what I'm looking for. All I can say is it's long, with faux fur and so darn beautiful. But where can I find it!?

Are you looking for the perfect winter blush? Because I have just the thing. Revlon Photoready cream blush is a lovely blush colour that's really creamy and silky smooth. It's really easy to apply, either with a buffing brush, you can slowly buff this into the cheeks or glide it on with your fingers, either way your cheeks are going to look blushingly beautiful.

You The formula is really lightweight and to be honest I can't even feel this once I've got it on. I used this blush whilst I was away recently, read my beauty abroad post here,  if I wanted my cheeks to look all pretty around the pool I turned to this because it's so glowy and it lasted all day. The blush is quite subtle and natural looking but it's also buildable, and can highlight your cheeks either with one swipe or ten. It blends out into a gorgeous, natural blush colour and doesn't dry out or flake away, it's stays very soft and cheeks feel hydrated all day. You'll definitely be PhotoReady with this blush!

These are new to the beauty world, and a staple in any lipstick lovers handbag especially if you're a lover of Nars Velvet Lip Pencils. Maybelline recently launched their Color Drama Lipsticks in a variety of shades, ranging from that subtle, ever so thought out pinky tone to a bright and vibrant, out on the town red. Maybelline have got this covered. Yay for Maybelline!

The Lipsticks/Pencils, whatever you want to call them, are super creamy and soft. The colours are highly pigmented and all the colours are show-stoppingly beautiful. The packaging is very simple and sleek, with the added colour on the end of the lipstick it's easy to tell which shade is which, *claps hands.*

Not only are they SUPER creamy but they glide on without tugging/pulling at the lips, and the colour pay-off is incredible for a budget brand. They're really long-lasting and only need the odd touch up, so there's no regular fuss or lipstick on the teeth situation happening. They don't dry out my lips or flake away and dry matte on the lips after application.

Everyone loves a cheeky purchase from Muji, and it mainly contains storage ideas or cute little bits and bobs, for any beauty hoarder they need somewhere to store products, but where they're easily accessible but also always visible, the answer I hear you ask is Muji, of course! 

1. The Range - Depending on the size or amount of drawers, whether you want flippy lids of no lids, small compartments or no compartments, Muji has this covered. The Range is impeccable because it has such a wide variety; thin, wide, tall, small...

2. The Price - The drawers are very affordable and Muji constantly have sales or deals going on, whether it's online or in their store, you can also find the odd cheeky promo code lying around somewhere. 

3. The Size - The two wide drawers alone are great because they can fit so much in, they're just the right size. I can fit so much inside the drawers and I can stack products on top of one another to create two rows inside the drawers which creates more space. 

4. The Look - It looks good, it really does because you can see all of your products and everything's on display but it's all set out beautifully.

5. Organisation - Everything's organised so there's no need to rummage around having to find something, you can still see the products inside the drawers and they're easily accessible. 

6. Everything has a home - before I couldn't find anything or it would all be dotted around in different places, or even all piled into a box but now they have a lovely acrylic home!
