I realised that I had aBeauty Bay Voucher that needed using up this month, so naturally I made an order for triple the amount of the voucher, because hey, who likes sticking to budgets? Plus you gotta' hit that Free Next Day Delivery spend limit otherwise whats even the point, yano? I figured I would give you a mini run down on a few of the bits I picked up, and actually speak about a product that I was a little (very) disappointed with to!
Dr Lipp - Original Nipple Balm for Lips
This is actually a repurchase so It's a bit of a giveaway as to whether I liked it or not, but I thought I'd include it, because I don't think I've mentioned it on my blog before now. I actually first picked this up on a plane from the in-flight magazine when I forgot my lip balm (my worst nightmare if you know me). I instantly fell in L O V E with it. It's now officially in my top 5 lip balms everrrrr (again if you know me, you'll know I've tried a lotta' lip balms!) It doesn't irritate my skin at all, and it instantly soothes whilst leaving what feels like a protective barrier over my lips which seems to last a few hours. After only a day or two of use I always notice a difference in my lips texture and them looking/feeling more moisturised. This seems to have sold out on site since my order boooo -but you can pick it up here for £12.00
BH Cosmetics - Nude Rose 4 Colour Highlight Palette
To be honest for only £12.00 I thought that this palette seemed to good to be true, but it really did look stunning so I thought hey lets give it a go! Unfortunately for me, it turned out that it really was to good to be true and this product has turned out to be a real disappointment for me. The highlights are extremely powdery and there is a lot of fall out from the product when you pick it up on a brush/with your finger. It was hard to get decent swatches of it (below) because the fall out was so bad, which I am hoping you can see from the picture. As you can see that the product kind of sits on top of the skin, rather than blending in. I know you can't expect wonders from a cheaper product, but I have to say that I think you could actually find much better highlights for even cheaper prices from Drug store brands such as Sleek/NYX. Sorry BH, but it's a no from me! However if you do fancy trying it for yourself, you can pick it up here for £12.00.

Stila - Perfecting Concealer
I am always on the hunt for new concealers, as they are one of my favourite parts of my makeup application, it was the main thing I was really looking for when making my beauty bay order. I decided to go for the Stila Perfecting Concealer as I had read good reviews, and Stila is a brand I am loving more every time I try something new!
My feelings on this are in no way negative, but they are slightly mixed, lemme explain. This concealer is AMAZING for covering small blemishes and little areas on the face you want to conceal - it has super high coverage and blends well to really camouflage. However this is NOT good for using under the eye, I find it too heavy and mattifying, and the lightest shade still isn't bright enough for that area for me, it made my face look too cakey and doll-like. So overall I wouldn't recommend it for under eye, I would highly recommend picking it up for other areas of the face. Get yours HERE for £15.00.
What are your thoughts on my lil' beauty haul!? Have you tried anything before? Also if you haven't you should really check outBeauty Bay! It's one of my favourite places to shop for beauty online. Georgie xo
