It’s another one of those random haul kinda days and at the moment I have an obsession with Matcha! Matcha is a fine grounded powdered high quality green tea and not the same as tea powder or green tea powder. If you’ve never tried Matcha before then it’s quite unusual because I think it has a creamy edge to it. I got these sachets of premade matcha lattes. It tastes like a creamy milky sweet […]
I visited the CCO near me recently and bought a few bits and pieces – extremely random mind, but here goes! I bought Origins Gloomaway Gumballs – chewing gum but they taste of grapefruit and seriously don’t last for very long at all. When they dry up they go hard like fimo. Not sure if they are making me less grumpy but they taste good!
I actually hauled this about 3 months ago when I was feeling saucy (although admittedly my attempts at ‘Frugal April’ have been some what thwarted by my renewed addition to Chai Tea Lattes, my hunt for summer dresses because there were 2 WHOLE sunny days and fresh addiction to Jill Stuart make up). Side note: Speaking of Jill Stuart – any ladies ordered from Hong Kong lately? Because I have a ton of packages that […]
On a recent trip to London I went to the Shu Uemura shop (the website selection is poor and so is my local concession) in Covent Garden. It was my intention to pick up some new shades that I don’t already have. Shu Uemura released some new shades in 2009 but since then it’s been quite quiet for new solo pressed shadows (they seem to be focusing on the palettes for new collections instead). I […]
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 […]
I made a few purchases from IMATS 2011 (not that many!). I picked up some bits from Make Up For Ever because there was 30% off. Totally impulsive, random hauling! I bought a Aqua Lip Pencil in Red 8c, Diamond Powder on 07 – a white with blue reflects, an Uplight in 23 and a HD Blush in 08 which I thought would be the most natural on my skin.
Well, how it started was, I really wanted the Shu Uemura goat foundation brush but it’s a rather expensive £40 so I resisted. I spotted this Sephora Collection I.T. Natural Foundation brush on eBay so purchased it and some other bits too: The Sephora I.T. (Intelligent Tools) collection was co created by French designer, Phillipe Di Meo and the Pro Beauty Team. They have lightweight, long handles and represent the highest quality brushes from the […]
I was down in London a few weeks ago and I visited Make Up Store in Carnaby street again to buy ONE EYESHADOW. Just one. And instead I ended up with a rather big (but very nice!) haul! I bought 2 blushers, 2 shadows, 2 high tech lighters (I have to buy most things in 2′s), got 3 lipsticks, a lipliner and lip gloss. I went a few months ago and hauled. I was also […]
