I bought a couple of things from Lou’s blog sale over at ***Sprinkle of Glitter***. There are still some things left if you want to have a lookie! Plus have a read of her blog and watch her YouTube videos if you have a chance, she is really lovely and funny! I highly recommend having a look. :) I sat giggling at one of her videos this morning, I’m sure my neighbours heard and thought I had gone mad!
The parcel arrived this morning (morning post for a change :o, it normally doesn’t arrive till after 3pm at the earliest!). I was confused at first as the parcel rattled, however when I opened it, it had lots of cute hearts inside, soo sweet! :)
I bought (in order of the swatch) Glam Crystals in Va Va Voom, Topshop Lipstick in Vintage and Sleek Kajal eyeliner in Odyssey. I wanted to try all of these, but I never think to get them when I’m out in town. The Glam Crystals I love, I have an Eyeco glitter liner which is a simialr thing, but in silver. I like glitter gel liners as you can put it anywhere and blend it and have quite obvious glitter that sticks and lasts. I normally put it around the outside of my eye and blend down to my cheeks. It’s a bit 80′s glam, but I like that. :)
The Topshop lipstick I keep meaning to get, I like the pencil application. My local Topshop doesn’t have make up and online the postage is a bit steep, so it always puts me off getting anything. I really want to try one of the new felt tip pen lip stains, but the postal, gah! I like this colour though, it’s a much stronger finish them I thought, I thought it would be a bit more sheer. I really like it though, it isn’t all that drying and lasts ages when I paired it with Too faced Lip Insurance. I tried looking for a list of which Topshop stores have make up, but I had no luck finding any info. Does anyone else have any clue? Actually, don’t say, it’s an excuse to go on a London visit! :p
Lastly, the Sleek Kajal in purple. I love eyeliners, I wear them a lot and tend to avoid eyeshadows. I love my Naked palette, but it’s the only eyeshadow I wear. If I want to wear any colour, I stick the eyeliner on. I’m very into purple at the moment, it’s my winter colour. My hair is purple, my nails and make up are turning purple, all I need now is to dig out my purple winter boots! :D Here is a picture of my eye (apologies for the zero concealer, I hadn’t long been up when the parcel arrived and I just stuck the eyeliner on before I was even dressed, I couldn’t wait. :p) I really like it, it’s quite subtle, but this paired with some Dark Deed dabbed on my lips, I’m all ready for autumn/winter! Does everyone else change for winter? Or I am weird :P
Phew! I have had a really busy month. I’m glad to sit down and relax! I didn’t get up till late afternoon today I have been busy all week trying to get experiments sorted before my boss went away on holiday, a lot of rushing around and long hours. However, I did go to the BBQ last weekend which was nice. I bought myself a new dress in the end an attempt to dress sensibly, I found nothing in town and in the end came home and looked on the Topshop website because I wanted to by myself some nail polish to cheer myself up. I ended up finding a lovely dress on there, in the sale too! Bargain!
I received my purchases from Jen’s blog sale too (Thanks Jen!). They are lovely, I got (L->R) Models Own Golden Peach and Blue Moon and Topshop’s Cloud.
The golden peach was perfect to match my new dress. I put a layer of Rimmel Apricot Punch and then a layer of Models Own Golden Peach over the top. I could even still smell the fruity apricot smell, if your wondering. Then I put some cute blue butterfly Nailene stickers on my thumbs. Matches my dress fabric quite well in the end! :) I really liked this nail look.
Here is the new dress, it’s from Motel, but you can buy it from Topshop. I grabbed this in the sale for half price. I have three other Motel dresses as this style suits me, they are my favourite dresses.
I received my little package from Louise at ***Sprinkle of Glitter***! Louise is amazing at making thing! I have to try hard not to buy it all! I saw this cute sparkly rose ring and it is the perfect colour for the petticoat I want to wear under my wedding dress. I couldn’t find anything in the shops this perfect and pretty! Plus she sent it in a cute little bag with confetti-type bits in. Really sweet :)
There was a lot of blog sales during my revision/exam time. So I bought things to make me feel less sad! Barry M french polish and GOSH light n shine 02 from Sinead at *Dainty*Dollymix*. I have not used the Barry M properly yet, but I really love the gloss. I’d of never thought to pick it up for myself in the shop.
Another blog sale from Lillian at Funny Face’s place. I love the bracelet, it’s so cute! I had been looking for some cute beads too, but I never find anything I’m looking for when I go shopping in town, I’m a rubbish shopper! I wore the beads during my revision and my exams, hoping that because they were present for revision they might trigger my memory of all the information, or tell me the answers…I needed a miracle tbh! Very glad it is all over!
I love the little blog sales and giveaways, it’s a sweet community thing, if I get any followers I’m sure I have plenty of things I’ve bought, but just sat in a box to giveaway!
I also bought some Illamasqua lashes from eBay. Not that I have any idea what to do with them! I have never applied lashes and I am yet to try, knowing my luck I will glue my eyelids together! The lashes are really cute though!
