Somebody take my cards off me, I’m turning into a spending freak! I have to have everything, and I want new things all of time but its getting out of control!
Thank god that most of these goodies are presents for my upcoming birthday. Thanks Mommy, and thanks to myself for my fab presents. Now, i’m sure you’re wondering why I have had my birthday presents nearly 4 weeks early and the simple reason is because I’m spoilt and I couldn’t wait, plus I don’t get many weekends off to go shopping with my Mum, so it was a perfect excuse for a trip to Mecca AKA Selfridges.
Who wants to see whats in the bags?!
We popped into Selfridges originally to pick up the new limited edition Vaseline in Paint the Town Red. I used Click and Collect to order it as well as the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blush. Due to popular demand after Week Five of The SO Project, I will be writing up my thoughts on Charlottes blush , complete with swatches this week.
To add to my make up kit, I picked up the NARS double pencil sharpener. My NARS 413 BLKR pencil runs down pretty quickly, but I didn’t have a sharpener for it. Problem solved!
I had 6 empties to return to MAC so I took advantage of the new Retro Matte collection and picked up my freebie lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous. This colour is a gorgeous deep fuschia. Both myself and my Mum will be wearing this over the winter months
Also from MAC, I got another eyeshadow for my palette. One down, two more to go. Its really annoying me having empty sections so the sooner I get it filled the better. I got Espresso, a matte muted golden brown. Its a lovely colour and i’ve been using it for the crease colour when working a daytime smokey eye.
Look at my birthday presents! I’m so lucky, so a big thank you to Mommy for treating me to these fab items. I got the Kiehls In Flight Face mist for when I’m at work. This facial spray is so refreshing, I can’t stop spritzing it.
I also got a new Chanel Le Blush in Affinite. Ooh look at the colour of it, its so purdy. I’m saving this for a week or two until its my special day.
Annnnd I also got this fabulous lippy from YSL. I wanted more berry and plum colours for my collection,but I though who am I trying to kid. I’m such a pink girl and the nearest to plum would be magenta for me. Look at it, oooh its so shiny and sexy!
Isn’t my mum just the best for getting me all this. Number One Mum of the year award goes to our Debs 😉
The final little beauty that was picked up was the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation. I’ve been a Double Wear wearer for years but I need to step out of my comfort zone and go sheer. Now my skin is looking shamazing, I don’t need such a heavy foundation and although Double Wear is my comfort blanket, i’m using the rest thats left fow work only and letting my skin have some silk instead.
So, thats my birthday beauty haul. Stay tuned for my Las Vegas haul from Sephora!
