A Little Beauty Haul

Beauty Haul by What Laura did Next
Ok, so I haven't done a beauty haul on here in a very long time and seeing that I went a little cray cray in Boots and various other beauty stores/websites, I thought it would be bad of me not to show you what I got.

My skin is drier than the Sahara dessert at the moment. After using Bioderma Micelle Solution for the last couple of years, I thought I'd try their Hydrabio Moisturising Mask mask and, so far so good. Full review coming up shortly. I also grabbed a travel-size Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution as these are so handy for travelling.

On a recent visit to Bobbi Brown for a makeup lesson with one of their team, I picked up one of their new face masks, Skin Nourish plus, the mini mask trio which contains travel-size versions of all three masks from the collection. I haven't tried them yet but I've already heard good things across the blogosphere. I will of course review them on here soon.  

Next up was another purchase from Escentuals. I've been after the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day range for ages now. It hasn't been available to buy over here as far as I'm aware...until now! Obviously I had to pick up the Shampoo and Conditioner to see what all the fuss is about. I'm currently using their Full Shampoo and Conditioner which I picked up at Space NK a couple of months ago, and I'm lovin' that so I have high hopes for these two.

My nail polish brand of choice is Essie. For some reason they seem to be the only 'drug store' brand that last the longest on my nails. My local boots don't have a huge selection, so when I visited Westfield recently, I swung by the Essie counter in Boots and I was spoilt for choice. I'm not sure how I only came away with four new shades as there were so many to choose from.

I picked up two shades from the Essie Retro Revival 2016 collection. Essie are celebrating their anniversary by digging up some old best sellers from their archive. I grabbed Sequin sash - a sheer glittery bronze nail polish with silver flecks, and Starry Starry Night - a navy blue with silver glitter running through it.

Another purchase from Bobbi Brown, was their sheer powder brush. This was used during my makeup lesson and I fell in love with it! I've been looking for a new brush to apply blush with and although it's designed for powder, I find it works with blusher as well. The Bobbi Brown brushes are really good and, although they're expensive they really do a good job.

Whilst in Boots, I also picked up was the LOréal Infallible Fixing Mist. I've heard a few things about this and thought I'd give it a whirl. My face seems to eat up my makeup by late afternoon, so maybe this will sort things out.

Last but not least, I re-purchased this mascara. Believe me when I say it is so much better than my YSL Babydoll mascara that I used to use every day. The packaging may look a little cheap and tacky, but the formula and brush are brilliant, and my lashes curl and stay that way all day.

Have you tried any of these products, or can you recommend any I should try? If you're based in the US of A please do send me some recommendations on drug store products I should pick up when I'm in NYC.
