It’s been a busy week and when I am busy and perhaps a little emotional I get a bit spendy. It has been a real good week for hauling some make up!
Anyway just a random, fun Friday post for you to finish the week. Have tons and tons of posts to write so bear with me I’ll be back with you in full action soon.
I’ve had some really fun bits come in the post this week (and some boring ones which I won’t share with you here!). Here are some of the more interesting bits that arrived (and will be reviewed in due course)…
People have been telling me for ages to try the Fairy Drops mascara so finally I bought it! I have here the regular mascara in black (waterproof version) and the base (did you know they did a base?!) and as a treat, a limited edition version (so cute it has a bear on it!). Excited to try this out!…..Then I got these – all four shades! Kiss Me Heavy Rotation is one of my favourite brands and these Milky Lips lipsticks (with a slightly matte finish) were calling me!
I bought these from Adambeauty.com – the shipping from Hong Kong at the moment is super duper swift.
Kose Nature & Co is a brand that incorporates natural and organic ingredients (quite a new thing for Japanese brands). I couldn’t resist this Honey Blend Smooth Hair Mist:
I wonder if bees will chase you down the street if you smell of honey?
DHC Supplements are my favourite – I am VERY sensitive to most (I get headaches and itchy skin easily). I haven’t had a bad reaction to DHC and they have absolutely tons of high quality supplements for all kinds of ailments.
I have about 8 different DHC supplements (which I will write about later) but I don’t take a specific one every day – I just take according to how I feel. I bought ‘relax’ which did honest calm me down and knocked my out for a very good nights sleep! And Q10 which is a general, mind, body and soul boosting supplement:
I bought some random items from adambeauty.com. A Rohoto day eye cream which is a light peach colour so also acts as a brightener, a KATE Crystallize Quartx eyeshadow palette in purple and a Fairy Drops Bronzer.
I am mad into Lavender at the moment (call me Granny Candy) so I bought these sleep pads you stick on to your pillow, some oil blotting sheets which smell of lavender and some cooling eye sheets (that don’t smell of Lavender!). My eyes get very tired looking at a screen all day:
I got some random bits from eBay too, like Majolica Majorca’s eye pencil in brown (I love the black one) and Kiss Me’s Cache Cache brand curl mascara. I also bought a limited edition Hello Kitty lip balm:
I have wanted the Make Up For Every empty tin for ages and finally it came back in stock on Guru Make Up! It’s huge by the way – I am going to put my Lunasol eyeshadows and perhaps some loose NYX ones in there:
I also bought the Shu Uemura Goat Brush – it’s tiny! But it is for foundation – quite excited to use it.
I cannot wait to try this Spa Find Heavenly Hydration Scalp Mud – I have various issues with my sensitive, flaky scalp and have really got into these kind of treatments.
I am nuts for Lunasol, have some gorgeous palettes coming in! I also picked up their face cream, full glamour lipstick in bright red, a lip gloss in glittery green (I like weird colours) and a nuance chance foundation, which is basically a highlighter/concealer pen:
I don’t need a new foundation – at all – but I have a weakness for compact cream foundations because they are so excellent for top ups during the day:
Maquillage Essence Cover Compact UV Foundation is a creamy textured one. I bought it in a 30 which is in my experience is dark enough for my NC35 skintone.
I also got some new sheet masks from brands I’ve never heard of before.
This brand is called ‘Love More’ – I love the shape of the mask (it encompasses the neck and loops round the ears). I got Electric Ore and Rose Crystal & Tourmaline.
I also bought 2 packs of Princess Carnival sheet masks at the same time:
The packaging is so cute…….adorable I want it made into a notebook or a bag! I chose Provence Lavender Relaxing Mask (told you I love Lavender) and Aegean Rose Moisturising Mask.
I was sent some ELF make up to try out – two super funky shades of polish and a tinted moisturiser (I have actually tried it before in a lighter shade, and really liked the texture so it will be great to use it in a more suitable colour.) I also purchased a Jill Stuart Fruit & Aroma mist ‘moisture’ in….can you guess?! LAVENDER!
And finally…don’t ask:
No idea what the Friday post will bring. Hopefully some waxing products so I can try out the Vajazzle?!
Did you get anything nice in the post this week?
