A while back now, I said to myself, that if I succeeded in getting a new job I could treat myself to a high-end beauty product or two. For ages I assumed this special purchase would be Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess powder bronzer but when it came to it, I wanted something that would really add to my collection and at the time, I wasn’t sure another bronzer was the right decision.
Also, since making this pact to myself back at the beginning of the year, my situation changed, I did land myself a new job (back in May) but I have also just got engaged (as you know) and on our way back home through London, we diverted into Selfridges so I could make a quick visit to the Charlotte Tilbury stand because if now wasn’t the time to treat myself, when would be?!
Folllowing my series of posts showing you aspects of my makeup collection, blushers were identified as being a real sweet spot for me and a total weakness, with lipstick being a very close second (so Charlotte Tilbury’s Glastonberry is very much next in line!). With this in mind, I made the decision that now made sense to purchase one of Charlotte’s most loved products, her Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop blusher which I got in ‘Ectasy’, and I am so pleased with it!
Beyond how beautiful it is to apply, arguably its most attractive feature is of course the packaging; the blusher comes in the most gorgeous smooth round compact. Inside, the product is encased within a silver ring and the inside of the lid has a big, round mirror. There is literally nothing you can fault with it.
Although I have technically bought high-end before (remember Bobbi Brown’s French Pink Set?), this is my first, full-price planned purchase. So while I will one day (soon maybe) purchase Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess, I am still perfectly satisfied with what is offered on the high street, but as you’ll agree, from time to time, it’s nice to treat yourself to something that bit more special.
Until next time xFollow
