As I may have mentioned once or twice on twitter I have been hauling a fair few beauty bits over the last month or so. I've really needed cheering up and shopping online is my own way of doing so. I tried to hold back a little but unfortunately there was no stopping me. What can I say? I couldn't resist. The consequences from my little(when I say little, I mean slightly big) is a hole in my purse but it's definitely worth it.
I have been hauling a few other beauty bits and pieces over the last few weeks but they were mainly repurchases and impulse buys but I wanted to show you what I purchased very recently instead of showing the full works of beauty products I've bought. There's too many to mention.
On my bid to cheer myself up just last week I hit up three popular beauty websites such as Selfridges, Feel Unique and Space NK and received them all the following week and couldn't contain my excitement when I opened them all up. Doesn't anyone else get the teeniest bit excited when you receive a parcel(s)? I'm like a little girl on Christmas Day.
Anyway, let's see what I've been hauling shall we?
First up, I hit Space NK as they have a Sale of up to 50% off on so many well known brands such as Laura Mercier, Revive, Shu Uemura and more. It's actually still on now! I'm guessing the sale will last until everything has ran out of stock. The Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Quartet caught my eye instantly. At first I was thinking of purchasing the duo but I realised getting the quartet would be much better value for money. It went down from £60.00 down to £30.00. That's a great 50% off! Such a great bargain. The creme brulee scent smells delicious and I can't wait to use it in the bath.
What did I purchase from good ol' Selfridges then? Well, for a while I have lusted over the NARS sheer glow foundation but I was too scared of the thought of purchasing an expensive foundation online without a match test. I haven't got a NARS counter anywhere near me but I decided to risk it and opted for the lightest shade, Siberia. I also decided to add the NARS radiant creamy concealer in the shade Chantilly to my virtual basket too as I've heard so many great things about it. I hate the thought of wasting foundation, especially when it's of the high end kind so of course I decided to purchase a foundation pump too. I couldn't find one on Selfridges but I found them in stock on Space NK so I added that straight to my basket along with my other Space NK goodies.
Last but not least is my Feel Unique goodies with an extra Space NK goodie thrown into the mix. I am so organised with this photography lark aren't I? haha. I completely forgot to seperate all my products into the stores I bought them from but who doesn't make a photography mistake every once in a while? I'm not perfect.
Anyway, I felt a few Feel Unique purchases was in order when I seen that they had discounted prices on their 'Hot 100' products which included theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer and Benefit's Hoola Bronzer. I have been yearning for these products for the longest time so it only felt right I splashed out and bought them both seeing as they were both discounted. I also decided to purchase some more Invisibobbles in a beautiful pastellicious spring fling purple which I have to say I adore! They are amazing at keeping hair straight and kink-free.
That cheeky extra Space NK goodie? Well I had to purchase the ByTerry ombre blackstar in Misty Rock. I am obsessed with eyeshadow pencils recently and this seemed like a great addition to my others. I actually first seen this used in a youtube tutorial by the beautiful Tanya Burr and fell in love with it. I can't wait to start getting some use out of it.
I love everything I have purchased and although I haven't used any of them just yet I am pretty happy with everything I received. I can't wait to get use out of them all.
