High End Beauty Haul

I had a cheeky trip to Space NK and Harvey Nichols last week and ended up getting some beauty treats that I've been lusting after for a while! Here's what I got...

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil
This is basically my makeup remover. It has transformed my evening skincare routine, making it a million times quicker and easier. You simply pump three squirts into the palm of your hand and then rub it into your dry, makeup-filled face, and then wash your face with warm water. It doesn't sting your eyes at all and even removes tough mascara. Amazing. I've only ever used the pink one before, which is aimed at oily skin, but my skin is more normal-combination now so this time I bought the yellow one. 

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm
I've heard so much about this cleanser. I've been debating about getting it for about a year now as every blogger and his dog seems to have had a great experience with it. My skin suddenly took a turn for the worst about a month ago with a major breakout coupled with dry patches, and, as beauty experts always say the cleanser is one of the most important products for getting rid of spots, I thought I'd invest in this. It's so gentle and suits all skin types, I look forward to using this regularly and I'll post a review in a few weeks.

Elemental Herbology Perfect Balance Moisturiser
Elemental Herbology is not a brand that I have tried before but one that I have read a lot of good things about. My first impressions of this moisturiser are very good. It is suitable for all skin types and states that it balances the skin perfectly (hence the name) by healing sore and dry patches as well as soothing and clearing up spots. It smells delicious too- very fresh! Review to follow in a few weeks. 

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
I've used this before but I've not been using it for about two months now as I was put off buying it due to the hefty price tag. However, not using it has made me realise how good it really is.You really do pay for quality and it lasts ages as a little squirt goes a long way. My skin looks brighter, fresher, clearer and rehydrated after using this.

Eve Lom Dynaspot
This is my second tube of Dynaspot. It's a very gentle spot treatment and the only one I've tried that doesn't make the spots angrier or the area around them red. Again, it's quite pricey but it does last a while as you only use a tiny blob each time.

Hourglass Veil Primer
This is a primer that I've wanted to try for a while as it looks very lightweight and like it will really let my skin breathe while keeping my makeup in place. It's completely translucent on the skin but seems to brighten it up. I'll let you know how I get on with it with a review in a few weeks.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation
A while ago I asked fellow bloggers on Twitter to recommend a foundation with a medium level of coverage that had a more matte than dewy finish, but not too matte. Lots of people recommended Nars Sheer Glow to me, and so I went for it- I'll let you know my thoughts in a review soon! 

Nars Orgasm Blusher
This is one of the most famous blushers in the beauty world. I've tried and tested it many times in the shops and this time I finally went for it. It's a gorgeous, natural looking blusher that really adds a pop of colour to your face. A full review will be coming soon!

What do you think about my purchases? What high end products would you recommend?
