Hiya everyone, hope you are all having a lovely weekend. My exam went ok yesterday - thanks for all the good lucks! So after my exam I decided to do a little retail therapy and here's what I picked up...
First up is Benefit Speed Brow - which is basically a mascara wand eyebrow comb which you use to apply the brow gel to your brows to keep them in place. I rarely do anything on a day to day basis to keep my brows tidy - I get them waxed once a month so for the majority of the time they look groomed! However the week before I am due a wax, they do get unruly so I bought this for the 'unruly eyebrows' days!
Next up is Pure Virgin Coconut Oil. I have been tempted to try Coconut Oil as a hair treatment for quite some time, and after seeing Imogen's blog post about her experience using it, I decided to try it for myself! I got this from a local health shop for just £3.69 - way cheaper than Holland&Barratt by the way!
Next is a pair of Accessorize Sterling Silver Studs which were just £4! I think they are so cute and I needed some studs because I haven't been wearing earrings for months! All the earrings I own are pretty dressy so I just needed some plain (yet super pretty!) studs to wear on a day to day basis. I think these are also glam enough for a night out :)
My primer ran out at the start of this week (sob sob), I was on the lookout for a new primer. I had been recommended Gosh's one but from what I can see it doesn't look like the type of primer I would like. I would also rather spend a bit more money on a product I knew was going to give me good results. I was dabbling between a Lancome one, an Illamasqua one or a Clarins one.
After giving it some thought, I bought Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch primer. I didn't want to waste money on a product that didn't work, and I'd seen Sarah's blog post on this particular primer and I trust her judgement so I went ahead and got it!
I'm so happy I decided to get this - used it this morning and it left my skin feeling like velvet!
Whilst I was Benefit I also picked up another Creaseless Cream Eyshadow in the shade Tattle Tale which is a beautiful pale golden colour. I used it today all over my lid, with another Benefit Cream e/s in Birthday Suit in the other corners. These cream eyeshadows are awesome and very versatile!
Finally, I headed to Lush to stock up on bath stuff! I picked up quite a lot of bath melts/bombs/bubble bars so I won't post them here but let me know if you'd like to see my little Lush haul and I'll get right onto it in a new blog post! :)
The reason I decided to pick so much stuff is that I was only a Lush Christmas temp so my discount runs out at the end of this month, and more importantly I have come home to my parents for a relaxing few days after exams and many many Lush baths are to be had!! :D
