So I went shopping today, with the £100 Debenhams giftcard that my sister very kindly sent me. I was all excited because it's 'mega day' which means 10%-40% off throughout the store which would obv make my giftcard go even further! Except, of course, I got my dates mixed up and megaday doesn't even start until Wednesday. Joy.
I am not a very good present shopper, I tend to get distracted by stuff I want for myself. Does that sound selfish? Maybe it is, but I'm just so easy to shop for!! =p
I bought faaaar too much so going to have to split this into two posts so you don't die of boredom. This post will look at my Lush, Superdrug and Boots buys.
My first stop was Lush, it's not somewhere I usually shop but I've heard so many good things so I went in to make some purchases.
What do you think?? I'm keeping almost none of it actually, it's all going away as presents. I heard lots of good things about Snow Fairy, so I got the wee size and the matching lipbalm. Also heard It's Raining Men was delicious smelling, so splashed out on a big one of that! The solid perfume was a last minute buy, the sales girl convinced me. I'm keeping this, gonna try using it instead of my regular perfume for a bit. The Silk Stockings is pretty awesome, it's a body balm/leg shimmer, I'm a bit gutted I'm giving this one away!!
Next stop was Superdrug!
The Aussie shampoo & conditioner were on BOGOF and I'm a recent convert so I stocked up! I also love Original Source shower gel, I've only tried the lemon and the limes ones tho so I decided to branch out. They smell delish - exactly as they say on the label! Can't wait to try them.
Got a bit excited about the 3 for 2 on cosmetics and bought some of the Andrea Fulerton products I've been coveting recently. The one with glitter is Georgia's Glitter Duo and comes with gold glitter, silver glitter and a topcoat. The Andrea Fulerton nail varnish is Kyle and is a purpley silver colour, can't wait to try it!
The Sleek Pout Paint I bought because I saw a review on it and liked the look of it! Review to follow.
The Barry M nail paint I didn't buy, but my mum just gave me to because she didn't like the colour (?!) so it's miiine now! It's a shade called Orchid.
I then visited TKMaxx and Boots, and picked up some awesome make up sets as presents:
The Front Cover Packing Case set is just gorgeous, as you can see in the bottom pic it has four eyeshadows, four cheek colours, pressed powder, mascara, eyeliner, lipgloss, tweezers and brushes. I love it! The ELF kit I got in TKMaxx (who knew?) but I can't open it to show you inside because it's a gift. ELF stuff is great so I know the recpient will love it!
I also got this Nails Inc set in TK Maxx, it has a greyish blue, an electric blue and a silvery glitter colour. Also a gift. Gutted. Maybe I did do better at gift buying than I thought!!
I also have Primark and Urban Decay goodies to show you! And of course I'll have to review some of these products so keep your eyes peeled for that.
And a quick pic of my NOTD - sadly I've lost my battle with nail biting so they're all little stumps. :(
(They're a few days old so a little chipped)
What do you think of part one of my haul? What's your favourite? Have you tried any before? Let me know!
