When your sister rings you on a Sunday morning and asks for a 'lift into town', you just know that it is going to hit your bank balance hard - diesel, lunch and unplanned shopping..
Here are a few pieces I picked up yesterday:
Unplanned shopping trips - always the most expensive
I decided to try the Garnier Michellar Cleansing Water, being a fan of Bioderma this product has been on my radar for a while. My Sister has said she doesn't think it is as good as Bioderma but I'll give it ago, then make up my mind for myself. Along with it I repurchased the Garnier Fresh Eye Makeup Remover - I really like this product, it is very gentle.
I have three sets of Bridesmaid duties this Summer, which I have mentioned a lot in previous posts, so I would like my skin to be as blemish free as possible. I have read a lot about charcoal masks for deep pore cleansing. When I spotted The Origins Clear Improvements Charcoal Mask, it immediately went in my basket. I have never tried anything by Origins but have heard nothing but positive things - I will review this and let you know how I get on.
Hands & Hair
I Love a good hand cream I do! My local boots has now got itself a Molton Brown stand, excellent! I decided to go for the Molton Brown Replenishing Hand Cream - Rhubarb & Rose. It smells amazing! Perfect size for handbags too which is another bonus. I am currently all good on the shampoo & conditioner front but I was in desperate need of a good, large, round brush for blow drying my hair. Since having my extensions put in, blow drying has become a real chore and my current brush isn't up to standard, it takes far too long. I decided to go for 'My big fat silky smoother' by Lee Stafford, which is a Natural bristle, Ceramic 39mm radial brush.
MakeupThe fun bit - Since the blogasphere has been going completely 'Benefit Push Up Liner' daft - I thought it was about time I found out what the fuss is about for myself so I picked it up. Next, I went over to Bourjois and got another Color Boost Crayon to add to my collection. These crayons are amazingly pigmented and moisturising. I went for #05 Red Island.
Concealer wise, my normal favourite is the Nars Creamy Concealer. I have been literally scraping the tube dry for the last fortnight or so. Aberdeen doesn't have a Nars counter so I was on a mission to pick up the closest 'dupe' that I could find. This came in the form of the Chanel Long Lasting Concealer in #10 Beige Clair. I do really like Chanel products so hoping this one works for me.
After being intrigued by a post recently written by Laura, known better as 'Lola & Behold' I decided to pick up 3 little eyeshadows from Natural Collection which were only about £1.79, ridiculously cheap. I swatched a few shades in the shop and the pigmentation really impressed me so I went for - Milk Chocolate, Willow and White Opal. I will of course review them in due course.
The last item of makeup I picked up yesterday was L'oreal Super Liner - Brow Artist #03 Brunette. Well you can never have enough.
Got two things for the home - Large Yankee Candle - Black Cherry. I burn candles in my kitchen constantly to get rid of any food smells. My Pink Dragonfruit is on the last legs so this time I opted for Black Cherry - it smells so so good!
Finally, the last item I got yesterday - was completely spontaneous but I couldn't resist the temptation to buy this gorgeous cushion from Next adorned with the cutest Highland Cow I have ever seen.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Did you shop?
