I don’t think the word ‘saving’ exists in my vocabulary… however ‘shopping’ certainly does! About two weeks ago I was having a bit of a treat yo self day and made a couple of sneaky online orders which I thought I would share with you, plus some purchases I made in store. So let’s get into it!
Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Afternoon Tea
This lipgloss was definitely the product I was most excited about (I eagerly checked the letter box for days awaiting it’s arrival – clear signs of a shopaholic). The day I was leaving London, Tanya Burr released her makeup line in Superdrug, so naturally I ran up and down Oxford Street like a mad woman trying to catch a glimpse of her, or her products, but unfortunately I had no luck. After arriving back home I then discovered I could order them off Feel Unique, which is a site I use regularly so I was ecstatic. After much thought I finally decided on the lipgloss in Afternoon Tea, which is lovely nudey/pink colour – the formula of these glosses are amazing and I will definitely have to place another order soon.
Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Hour Glass Beige
Continuing with the makeup theme, this eyeshadow has been something i’ve wanted for a while but never got around to picking up. This L’oreal Infallible Eyeshadow is a shimmery beige colour, and when I first swatched it I was blown away by it’s pigmentation. It is almost too pretty to use! My favourite way to wear it has been as an all over the lid colour with a bronze shadow in the crease, or to add a light and shimmery sheen to the inner corner. Retailing for around $19.95 it is on the more expensive end of the drugstore spectrum but it’s so worth the money.
L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer
Primers have never been a regular part of my makeup routine, I usually just slap on some moisturiser before my foundation and i’m good to go. However, this product intrigued me as it claims to provide a boost of radiance – which sounded like something worth trying. So far I haven’t seen any change in the wear time of my foundation, I will be sure to continue using it and keep you updated.
Dotti Quilted Jumper
I have been on the hunt for a quilted jumper to wear during winter, as much as I love my knits I thought it was about time to revamp my wardrobe and change up my style. I purchased this jumper online along with another top when Dotti were having a half price sale, however I ended up with the wrong size in the jumper and the top wasn’t the right style for me. Thanks to Dotti’s great returns policy I was able to easily exchange the jumper for a smaller size and refund the top in store.
Converse Canvas All Star Low Cut
Early last year I invested in some black hi top converse and have had quite a lot of use out of them. I thought it was about time I bought myself a new pair – I feel like you can never have enough of these types of shoes as they are easy to wear and go with virtually everything.
And there we have it, my first haul! I’m sure they will be plenty more to come… confessions of a shopaholic!
