So this is what happens when I come back to the blogging community: I become obsessed with products, go shopping ALL the time & my bank balance becomes a scary thing to check. Do you suffer from these problems?
This was Thursdays haul. I was already on the way to getting most of my wish list all in one afternoons shopping. I'm going to do full reviews on the Givenchy clean to sublime makeup remover serum, it's heaven. Smells divine & leaves skin silky smooth. Also full review on Avene gel cleanser to come. I also picked up the high street copy of Compay, it's beautiful. The layouts, the slightly more square shape to the magazine, the matte stock instead of a glossy one, ahhh beauty. The weird looking belt thing on top of the magazine is amazing, it's a festival belt from H&M (£14). There's space for money, camera & phone so I nabbed in ready for the summer, because knowing my luck come August there won't be any around!
Swatches of Chanel:
This is stunnnnnning. It's from the new summer collection which is all beautiful & I really need to get more, especially Darling lipstick. This is Genial 187. Beautiful colour pay off, amazingly creamy on the lip & such a fantastic summer colour, probably the nicest pinky coral ever.
Xen dark lotion, Elemental Herbology skin drink (which is supposed to be great for keeping your tan), Bumble & Bumble thickening spray & Brilliantine (after HollyYM's recommendation). Full reviews to come for all of these of course!
Ahhh & here we have Illamasqua. I love the staff at the Newcastle counter, they're so friendly & approachable, love going to that counter. Anyway, after being seduced by the imagery for the new Body Electrics collection I had to go get some. The gleam cream is gorgeous, you could compare it to strobe cream, but it's a little thicker and pinkier. I love it, will be posting FOTD/review on it soon. Also picked up the liquid metals palette, who wouldn't? & Dixi cream blusher, nom.
You want swatches I hear you say? Go on then!
Phew, monster post!
