managed...

to squeeze in a little real life (not online - that doesn't count) shopping trip between uni and work today.


Skin colour and black dotted tights - Primark, Stippling Brush & Powder Brush - Real Techniques,
Shampoo, conditioner & Backcomb in a bottle miniatures - Umberto Giannini


I'm going away to Bath for a few days next week and our current shampoo and conditioner in the shower are the massssive bottles of Tresemme, so I wanted to get something smaller that wouldn't take up valuable clothes space in my bag (or break my shoulder carring it round). I usually use a bit of Batiste when I'm backcombing my hair but thought I'd try this mini bottle instead, see how it goes!


I've definitely jumped on the Real Techniques bandwagon with these but see below for the disaster that was my previous powder brush. So I was in desperate need of new brushes.


What even is this!?


Crap bristles and no handle.... hmm it was about time I got some new ones!



I haven't tried them yet, but I'll let you know how I get on :)
Has anyone tried the Umberto Giannini products or the Real Techniques brushes? What did you think?

    1. hahah, I know! I honestly don't know why I didn't get round to buying one sooner! I'm hoping that the results of the Real Techniques brush are going to be amazing compared to the old one! x

  4. I'd be interested to see how the backcomb in a bottle works out for you. I know lots of people who swear by it but for me it doesn't do a thing. I'm starting to wonder if I'm not doing it right lol.

  9. How did you find using the Real Techniques stippling brush? How you been using it for foundation? I may order one this evening or tomorrow from the Boots website as my local store doesn't stock them! :( xxx

  10. Oww thank you commenting back :) I'm so pleased to hear that brush works well with liquid foundation! :D I'm going to order one after I've posted this, thank you! I use a mac brush at the minute and it's great but it sheds so much hair, I'm actually suprised there's any left. Ha! Ooh that's nice that we started our blog at the same time :) I'm really enjoying it so far, are you? What's the secret to attracting people to reading your blog? Because I have absolutely no idea!! Ha :) xxxx
