I went and did a bit of spontaneous shopping yesterday…it’s always the best kind isn’t it? I bought a few bits myself and then the other half kindly bought me a couple of early birthday presents, which was very nice of him 🙂 I love having a nose through people’s shopping bags so I thought you might like to have a look through mine.
So first up I went into Boots and literally spent an hour looking through the makeup aisles. I love having time to do that, just going up and down swatching and deciding.
I have seen a few people talking about the Seventeen Phwoarr concealer so I decided to pick that up.
Seventeen was on buy one get one half price. So after much deliberation. I also picked up their Stay Time Foundation.
The shade range is a bit crap, but Porcelain seemed to be the closest to my NC20 skin. It has SPF 25 which is great for the day time and it claims to be full coverage too as well as lasting all day.
I hit the Barry M stand next. My last review here on Beautynook was all about the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Crayons, you can read it here Because I liked the two I got then I chose another one to add to my collection.
I got the shade number 3. It’s a lovely pinky brown neutral shade, that I will get alot of wear out of.
I also grabbed another one of their waterproof eyeliners, which I have a few of already and really like.
Collection had their Work The Colour Eyebrow Kit on special for €3.99 which I thought was a bargain so I threw that into my basket to try aswell.
While I was in Boots eyeing up the makeup, I did grab a couple of everyday essentials too.
The Botanics range is taking the beauty world by storm at the minute. Their Radiance Balm which I reviewed here not too long ago has reached cult status, so when I saw they were doing shampoo and conditioner I had to give them a go. I got the Instantly Volumising ones but there was a couple of different types to choose from. Excited to give these a try.
I also got some Mitchum deodorants, which I have never used before.
Not the most exciting of purchases but like mascara I am always on never ending quest for the perfect deodorant. I love the Sure Maximum Protection, but at over 7 euro a pop it’s not always the most purse friendly, so lets give these a go 🙂
I took a quick detour into H&M and thought I would include these shorts into this haul because they’re cute and they were only €10!!!
As I am turning 30 next week (the horror) the boyfriend told me to pick a couple of bits while we were out to ease me into the transition of another decade slowly. So I just chose two things to ease him into the financial transition of someone close to you having a big birthday ha!
I got the cult phenomenon that is Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat Lip Pencil in Pillow Talk.
Rimmel do a very good dupe for this pencil in Eastend Snob which I’ve owned many times. The one that I have now broke though so I thought I would give the posh one a try. This is a great liner for when you want to over draw your lips slightly to give an extra little pout. I’m excited to play with it 🙂
He also bought me something very random and not like me at all usually.
These are the Nike Air Max Theas. Runners,trainers,sneakers whatever you call them have been making a comeback in the fashion world and I am jumping on board the bandwagon because they’re bloody comfy! I had planned on getting the all white Theas which are much more respectable, but the bright orange ones just spoke to me and I wasn’t forking out for them so I took the risk…why not! They will definitely be a love/hate thing I’m sure though.
I also bought some toothbrushes too on this shopping trip but I didn’t think you would be bothered seeing them aswell 🙂
As always thank you so much for reading, it makes me so happy. And if you’ve been shopping recently let me know what you bought. I love to have a nose.
