Mini Make-up Haul!
So I went a little cray cray the other day when I popped into town with my blogger friend Jess (Go check her out here!) and ending up spending far too much money on not that much stuff :( it's always the way with make up.
Prices and links are at the bottom.
Hope you Enjoy.
|See below for info and prices.|
The first shop we went in was of course MAC, and due to my inability to leave that darn shop with a bag I ended up buying the Pearl Glide intense liner in 'Designer Purple' and since I already have it in 'Undercurrent' it seemed rude not to pick this little friend up for him! I also had to buy a new 217 brush as you can never have enough.
Next we hot footed it to Space NK, loyalty card in hand and ready to be used it was straight to the NARS counter, but a little cheeky peek was had at the Laura Mercier Foundations (convinced ourselves out of that purchase some how....) Here I picked up the much coveted Nars Laguna Bronzer and it's a lot bigger than I had expected, which obviously meant it HAD to be bought.
Still in Space NK the lip glosses caught our greedy little eyes and there it was, heaven in a tube'larger than life lip gloss in ODALISQUE', this peachy toned lip gloss was begging to be in my makeup bag, and what convinced me even more was that the brush isn't a sponge applicator it's, well, more of a brush! It isn't sticky at all and has a great staying power. However I think these lip glosses are different to the usual NARS glosses as they are £1.50 more in price.
Technically I didn't buy this next product, a regular on the 'Best Primers' list its the Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish foundation primer. I found it creeping in my mums drawer, and didn't think she'd miss it, so it now has a nice new home! This primer is oil free, so it works great on my combination skin and actually does keep your makeup looking great for longer - highly recommend.
And finally, Skincare, I kept seeing Pixiwoo (YouTube channel - if you don't who these two are GET OVER THERE NOW!) using this moisturiser on every video and talking nothing but good about it, but i thought it would probably be far too expensive, so when I saw 'Oilatum Natural Repair face cream' in Boots I had to buy it and I'm sure glad I did, great for the dry patches on my jaw and light enough to apply makeup over it might just be the best moisturiser I have tried yet!
