I thought I would post a few bits of makeup and accessories I’ve bought recently. I’ve spent waaay too much on clothes, but these are a couple of bits I wanted to share.
Waitrose Baby Bottom Butter. I’ve read a couple of positive reviews about this as a moisturiser, but after a week I’m not convinced. I find it too sticky, and although it smells amazing, the texture just doesn’t work for me. I haven’t put it on my face, but even on my hands and arms it’s too heavy.
NYC Ultra Last Lipstick Air Kiss. Not so amazing.
Clarins colour quench lip balm in Peach Nectar. I got this freebie from a scratchcard they were giving out. It tastes yummy!
Urban Outfitters headband for £1 in the sample sale, and Forever21 Necklaces for under £5 each!
2true Blusher True Colour in Pink Blush. Actually a nice little blush, but the size is awfully small.
MUA Professional Eye Palette Heaven & Earth. Naked Palette Dupe, which is pretty darn awesome. Apparently it’s sold out almost everywhere, but there were tonnes in my Superdrug in Brixton at the weekend!
2true eyebrow pencil. I’ve been looking for a new eyebrow pencil, and the colour of this is a good match – my old one was slightly too dark.
2true Instant Volume Mascara No 2 Black. The 2true range was on a 3 for 2 offer, so I thought I’d try this. My Maybelline Colossal Volume Express is letting me down at the moment. I’ve given it a go, and it’s not bad for a cheapo mascara, but not as dramatic as I would usually like.
I found a cheap perfume and makeup shop in Westfield, and thought I’d give these two LA Colours “colour craze” a go for 99p a pop. Of course, they were awful.
More nail varnish – I got the Elle Red with this months Elle. Tried it yesterday and it gives a really nice coverage! I also tried the MUA Nail Quake in Shattered Ice and regular nail varnish in Shade 6. Haven’t tried the Shade 6 yet but the Nail Quake is not as good as Barry M in my opinion.
A couple of Primark bargain rings!
