Ohh, new purchases.
Always happens on a Saturday.
I blame the boredom of being at work; it makes me buy things.
I haven't really been in one of those 'new beauty product purchasing' moods of late. I'm not sure why this is but i seem to be ever so indecisive at the moment..
I am actually beginning to annoy myself because i pick up all sorts of lovely new stuff i want to try until my arms cannot physically contain any more junk. I'm one of these people who never picks up a basket. I seem to have this theory that if i can contain it all in my hands, then it won't cost as much. Of course it costs exactly the same, but it somehow feels less guilt-ridden?
and after all this tedious balancing and carrying around the various aisles..
i put it all back!
So, i decided i would change my ways today, and i seem to have collected a decent amount of stuff..
i had to use flash for these photographs as i couldn't be bothered to wait for any natural light..bare this in mind :)
Rimmel 'Wake Me Up' Foundation in '200 Soft Beige': I don't normally use foundation. But i used the little trial sachet in a recent magazine and i actually really liked it. It smells like Boujois 'Healthy Mix' - which is my next product on the list to try. It's a light to medium coverage and it seems to last me all day - and it doesn't smell chemically and false like the majority of foundations on the market (my reason for hatred of foundation..) I use my regular tinted moisturiser then pop this on in the areas i need it and it seems to suit me just fine.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 210 'Coral in Gold': I only have one Rimmel lipstick and it happens to be from this range and it's one of my firm favourites. So thought i'd try the coral/orange version.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 240 'Undressed': Wanted to try a browny-nude colour for ages before i go splashing out on any Mac beauties. So i thought that i'd try this. I love the shade of this one because it's not too light - it looks quite natural and doesn't seem like it will wash me out too much.
*Rimmel have a 3 for 2 offer on right now which is the reason for the impulse lipstick pur-chase!*
St Moriz Self Tanning Instant Mousse in 'Dark': THE. MOST. EXCITING. BUY. OF THE WEEEEEK. I get so jealous when i see this in people's beauty hauls because it seems impossible to find St Moriz near me! I've heard its a good copy of the ever so fabulous St Tropez so i can't wait to try it. They only had the instant version but i still can't wait to try this on a night out. And yes i bought the Dark version because i'm just hardcore like that :)
If you are one of these poor females like me who lives in an area with a significant lack of St Moriz - then i found mine at Tesco Direct.
Lancaster Tan Maximising After Sun: The best aftersun you will ever use if you wish to deepen a tan. I got this at duty free before i went on holiday - obvs! This is my 3rd bottle now and i'm still in love. (my review here)
Vo5 Give Me Texture - Tousled Style Spray: I love wearing my hair wavy and a bit on the messy side so i wanted to try a spray like this.
Tresemme Volumising Dry Shampoo: I can never find the 'volumising' version! It seems to be very sought after so i'm very chuffed i managed to find myself one. I'm planning on doing a review of different dry shampoos soon.. this one is my current favourite.
Hope you're all having fabulous weekends. Sadly i'd love to pretend i'm out on the tiles having a crazy one, but i'm just sat on my sofa with 2 packs of fudge and the crumby-evidence of a chocolate cake on a plate next to my laptop, catching up on the TOWIE episodes i missed whilst on holiday.
I have also just treated myself to my first Illamasqua blush! So excited! There will be a post coming soon...
Lots of love
