A few flowers to brighten the day

It has to be something about Fridays.. I have this urge to indulge, buy something. I find it easiest to buy beauty or makeup on a whim. A lipstick here and an eyeshadow there.. just a few extras I tell myself! Who am I kidding! Often these extras are bought only to stash them in the ‘extras’ box :)

Anyhow, here’s what I picked up this afternoon and something that came in the post!

My haul :)

  1. ELF Studio Makeup Mist & Set £3.50
  2. L’Occitane Repairing Shampoo for Dry & Damaged Hair £17
  3. Waitrose Baby Bottom Butter £2.89
  4. Touche Veloutee By Terry £35
  5. Laura Mercier Secret Concealer £18.50
  6. Laura Mercier Under Eye Perfector £18.50
  7. Revlon Just Bitten Lip stain and Balm £8

Over time I will share my review of the products, but let me give you the first impressions –

Elf Studio Makeup Mist & Set is something I ordered purely because I was curious and it is pretty reasonably priced.  L’occitane is one of my favourite brands and I love the how the products are naturally derived and smell gorgeous. I have a thick mass of hair and the purpose of a shampoo for me is to clean and not strip hair of the moisture. This shampoo does just that and leaves my hair soft and smelling amazing.

Waitrose Baby Bottom Butter is one of Sali’s (the beauty column I mentioned in my earlier post) recommendations for dry skin. It is so cheap so I thought I would try it out on my legs and heels left dry by the cold snap.

By Terry Touche Veloutee is something I was contemplating on buying for sometime. There are only 3 shades and the darkest one is the only match for me but I love the lightness of the product, I hate the creasing under the eyes, so lets see how it performs 9-5.

Laura Mercier Under Eye Perfector comes in 2 colours, orange-yellow and mauve rose. It is meant to neutralize the darkness for the most intense dark eyes. I bought it in orange/yellow and the secret concealer in No. 3.

Finally the Revlon Just Bitten balm and colour,I bought a bright pink shade called Desire just to try the concept of a stain.

So excited to give these a go over the weekend! Have a great one !
