YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks in Shade 1 'Nude Beige' and Shade 8 'Fetish Pink'
I have been lusting after these lipsticks ever since I started blogging and I've finally given in and treated myself. I bought the first and was amazed at the quality - so of course I decided to splash out on a second (oops - sorry bank account). They've fast become my go to lipsticks and I shall be reviewing them very soon. I thought i'd opt for more neutral shades to start with as I will get more wear out of them, but I have my eye on some of the reds and corals for my birthday..('Red Muse' - please be mine?) They took a mahoosive chunk out of my holiday spends but every girl needs a bit of luxury in her life, no?
Lancaster Tan Maximiser AftersunA staple in my holiday beauty bag, this product is seriously amazing and I will continue to repurchase every time I run out. A lot of people would cry a little inside at spending £25 on an aftersun, and I must admit it kills me inside each time, but I always use it alongside a cheaper alternative and I make it last. It has no self tan in it but deepens the colour you have naturally (it also smells amazingly yummy) and feels beautifully light and soothing on suntanned skin - I usually get mine in Duty Free for the discount so if you fancy trying something new at the airport then I really recommend this.

Hello Kitty Mini-Perfume, Nail Polish & Baked Eyeshadow
*ahem* Please don't judge me on this. But i'm a sucker for anything Hello Kitty (or anything cute), and on a little mooch around one of the beauty stores on holiday I just couldn't stop myself. They actually had a proper make-up stand full of beauty goodies and it didn't look tacky in the slightest (honestly!) I wanted the perfume just for pure cuteness factor (how can anyone resist the mini cat head?!) and of course the nail polish happened to just jump into my basket..
I'm going to try and use the eyeshadow as a highlighter for contouring - it's suprisingly pigmented.
Lola Blush in Shade '003'Lola is a brand i'd never heard of before, but it was stacked alongside Chanel and YSL at the counters, so i figured the makeup would be of decent quality. I really liked the blush range they had and decided to try this eye-popping pink shade to go with my tan! It's so pigmented and you only need the tiniest bit to provide an amazing colour pay off. They also have an amazing range of lipsticks and glosses...
I've never tried Technic polishes before, so I decided to give them a go. The bright pink shade was a cheap polish from a random shop on the beachfront and I picked it up for a couple of euros - suprisingly a really good polish!
Ahh I need to go on another holiday purely for the makeup sesh at the airport..
Does anyone else go a bit beauty-crazy whilst on holiday? My shopping starts in duty-free and doesn't stop until I get back..
