Time for a Treat

Beauty Purchases

I had some vouchers left over from Christmas & decided it was time I spent them. L’Oreal had 3 for 2 so I had to make the most of that offer. This is what I came home with.

Revlon Photoready Skinlights in 200 Pink Light £11.99 – This is a gorgeous pinky peach highlight. I have seen people use this as a primer all over their face, I think I will be using it on my cheekbones to highlight, it is very pretty. This will be nice for Spring & giving me a healthy glow.

L’Oreal True Match Foundation in Vanilla £9.99 – This is my first L’Oreal foundation and it took me ages to decide on my shade & I’m still not too sure I have the right one. I am sure I will make it work.

L’Oreal Color Rich Smoky Quad in Rose Memories £7.99 - Hello my perfect shades. These are so pretty and very me. They do all have shimmer in them so this won’t be everyones cup of tea, but I am in love with every shade. The packaging of this is slim and compact it looks and feels quite luxurious.

L’Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim in Intense Black £6.99 – I’ve tried and loved many L’Oreal liquid liners and had to try this one. It has a super find nib and its very very black. I’m smitten, I like to wear eyeliner most days and often I go for a very fine cat flick and this is perfect for that job.

Rimmel Glam Eyes HD 5 Colour Eye Shadow in  022 Brixton Brown £6.99 – Purchased after reading Amy’s post I really liked all the colours & it’s the kind of colours I feel comfortable wearing , this Rimmel one isn’t as shimmery as the L’Oreal Quad & it has a matte shade in there too. Very nice palette indeed.

I bought two NYC polishes as they were on 2 for £2.40. I bought Raindrop which is a lovely pale blue colour & Blue Sky which is a gorgeous sea green shade. These are both perfect summer colours.

BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine in Passion Fruit £3.99 – This is such a bright bold red/pink shade. Its gorgeous & I am hoping as the weather gets a little nicer & warmer I can wear this on my toes. So pretty. I love these BarryM Gelly polishes.

Maybelline Color Show in Green With Envy £2.99 – This is a lovely mint green, I like these little Maybelline polishes and they have such a great selection of colours & some fun glitters too.

I also popped into LUSH & bought 2 things from their Easter range.

Bunny Bubble Bar  £3.25- How utterly cute is this little guy. I’m going to be a little sad to put him in my bath.

Fluffy Egg £2.95 – Very pink and cute. This smells so nice & relaxing.

So thats my mini haul. Let me know if you’ve tried any of the products & keep your eyes peeled for reviews on all of these.

    Great haul! I love the look of that L’Oreal eyeshadow quad!

    I like everything you bought! Those eye shadows are so up my street, and the nail polishes are perfect for spring. I’ve been thinking of buying true match foundation as it has so many good reviews but also like to try the Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawles.

  12. Sandra says:

    I really want to try Revlon Skinlights and the L’oreal quad.

  13. Kate Spitz says:

    So jealous that your L’Oreal True Match foundation comes with a pump! I also love that Rimmel quad but I dont’ think its available in the US.


  14. Jennie May says:

    Ooh lovely purchases! The little bunny bubble bar is so cute! xo

  15. Gemma T says:

  16. Really fun products! Brixton Brown has been getting a lot of blogger love. At first I wasn’t convinced but it’s growing on me. The Barry M polish is a gorgeous colour and I love LUSH! :)
