Recent Purchases: Real Techniques & Beauty Storage

Just a few small purchases for me this week, all beauty related.
Well, my obsession with Real Techniques brushes continues, and this week I bought the Travel Essentials Kit from Amazon. To be honest, I really only wanted the pink Multiple Task brush, but I believe you cannot buy this separately so had to buy the full set. I bought it from Amazon for £13.99 but, at the time of writing, it is now £13.07 so even cheaper!

I also bought the Real Techniques Lash & Brow Groomer from Amazon for £5.75. Did I need it? No, I already have a brow brush, but the obsessive in me wanted it to match so I popped it in my basket! *blushes* I think I am just about covered with my RT brushes now, although I do have my eye on the retractable lip brush...

Now with all these new brushes. I needed somewhere to store them, so this acrylic Cosmetic Cup caught my eye. Also from Amazon, at just £4.99 I thought I would give it a try.

I chose this design because I liked the 3 sections inside it. I thought I could use one section for powder brushes (pink), one for the face brushes (gold) and the third for eye brushes (purple). I know it's not a huge problem having them altogether in the same pot, but in the morning rush if I can save a few precious seconds searching for a brush, then all is good!
When it arrived I was very pleased with it, and I liked the dimpled effect on the outside, so much so, I ordered another one! I was keeping my eye liners, lip liners and eye primers all in separate pots so why have 3 when one can do the job?! Simple but effective storage.

Well, that is all of my purchases this week. What have you been buying? I would love to hear about your purchases.
I do have some make up on order from Superdrug, Boots and YSL so, fingers crossed, that will come this week.
Hope you all are having a great day.
Take care,

  1. I noticed you have the RT buffing brush. My favourite foundation brush of all time! It's fab. What did you order from YSL? I've just uploaded a blog post on the Touche √ąclat foundation I'd love for you to check it out.


    1. Hi Jessica, thanks for commenting. Yes I love the Real Techniques brushes too, first brushes I have ever had that do not shed at all. My YSL purchases were a lipstick, lip gloss and eye quad. Can't wait for them to arrive. Will do a post when they do. Will check out your blog. Thanks. CJ xx
