On my little trip up the city to pick up my MK bag I dropped into Boots to replenish my make up stocks. Its mad I have so much make up but I always end up re-stocking on the same things.
So today I stepped out of my comfort zone and purchased new products of my classics that I’d run out of.
New Purchase £7.99
I’m looking forward to this new concealer, I’ve had many of my regular YouTuber’s recommend it as they had the wake me up which I enjoyed.
I have picked up a new mascara. I’d been using the Clinique High Impact for probably the last 4 years. I just felt recently that it was really, really lacking, my lashes just looked short and stubby, it seemed to clump them badly and I just wanted a fresh start with a new type.
New Purchase £6.99
Again this has been recommended by several YouTuber’s. I will be doing in-depth reviews on all these products.
Last classic replacement was my Gimmie Brow. I’ve been using this for goodness only knows how long?! I don’t remember its been years. However since the re-launch. I’m not sure if they changed the formula or not but I’m just not happy with it anymore.
Classic (mini) £5.00
New Purchase £4.99
I’m quite excited about this one! I think the colour will match my brows really well and hopefully give some nice definition as well as taming them for the day.
Two other cheeky little purchases were a nude eyeliner to hopefully help me look more awake. I’ve also recently fallen back in love with the bold black eyeliner look, so I’ve picked up a nice soft black liner.
As I have said I’ll be doing an in-depth review of each of these and let you know what I think of them in place of my ‘classics’.
I popped out with MrGUINE today to buy a present for my friend that I’m seeing on Saturday. It’s her birthday next weekend but as she lives in London I doubt I’ll get to see her then.
We’re quite close and she’s a friend that I find so easy to buy for. Some what way too easy as it leaves me with dozens and dozens of options.
Anyway I brough some things for me while we were out too. The weight loss is going really well and I decided to treat myself.
I bought a beautiful Blazer, I still need to lose a bit more weight for this to fit comfortably but I found it too beautiful to look past. £49.99
I picked out a lumber-jack checkered shirt, I’ve wanted one of these for years but felt restricted by my weight. Now that I’ve lost a bit I’m branching out of my comfort zone a little bit. I still don’t know if I’ll wear it until I lose a bit more weight but the option is there if I want to. £19.99
I picked out a Dior gloss for my friend along side a jacket and a top. I couldn’t help but picked up a cheeky one for myself too! I’ve read and seen a lot of this gloss lately and had to try it. It’s very moisturising so far and sits comfortably on the lips, not sticky but a slight slick feeling.
(Sorry for the sore lip, i bit it earlier in the day!)
I love the Benefit Gimmie Brow and have been using it for a long time now, however when I went in today they had none in stock. Mine was so dried out though and had started to clump so I needed something. I picked out Speed Brow, I haven’t tried it yet but I’m quite excited to!
I popped into Boots and they had a 3 for 2 offer, so I used this as a chance to buy some lashes in bulk.
I thought that I went in at the deep end with Fleur and Fabulous lashes as an application novice, so I got beginnerlashes to try.
I loved the look of these as they look light come with a practise lash and have an applicator/extra glue included.
I was pleased when I found these more natural lashes in the collection.
The individual lashes I wanted to try, I’m very impressed that these come with so many medium lengths as the long look too un-natural to me but I will try them. I was happy when buying them as the till clerk said that I had beautiful lashes and I didn’t need to worry about fake ones!
I also bought a new fuller coverage foundation, its called a gel formula. I haven’t tried it yet so I will share my thoughts on it when I do.
