It has been a while since I treated myself, since moving I’ve had to adjust to having a lot less space and as a result I’ve been trying to use up products before repurchasing new ones and one the whole I’ve been doing well. Im getting creative with my storage solutions & how I organise my makeup. I thought I would share with you what I’ve bought over the past few weeks.
After much procrastination & whilst I had a hire car I visited MUJI at The Trafford Centre to buy some of their infamous Acrylic Storage. Its not a full MUJI shop but a concession in Selfridges. They do have a good selection of the storage however so I was pleased as punch. I didn’t want to go OTT buying lots, as I do like to store my makeup in a few different ways. It took me ages to finally pick the Narrow 2 Drawer & Wide 5 Drawer. I’m taking my time to organise them and the products you can see stored in them isn’t how they will stay.
I love them and like how tidy and pretty they look on my dresser, I will be showing you how I organise them when I make a final decision on what to put in which drawer. Its a time consuming task, but I am looking forward to it.
Next up I went to John Lewis armed with some Vouchers I won in Sandra from The Black Peal’s giveaway back in December & I bought the gorgeous Clarins Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF25 and their Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in Champagne. I adore them both. I’d tried a sample of the BB Cream and had my heart set on buying it. These make a very good duo, I have a feeling they will be my Spring/Summer go to bases. They make my skin look healthy and so smooth. Its love.
I seem to have an addiction to neutral eyeshadow quads/quints. I have bought a few this year but these two are the newest additions to my collection and they are NYC Cupcakes & Coffee Quad and Maybelline Big Eyes in Luminous Brown. I’m yet to use these but when I do I will let you know what I think.
I also bought 3 nail polishes from Poundland, utter bargains. Rimmel Lasting Finish in Strawberry Fizz – its a pretty girly pink. Maybelline Forever Strong in Dark Denim – this is a deep blue and lastly Revlon Scented Perfume in Raspberry Scone – this is a purple toned pink, it’s meant to be scented but I can’t make out a scent. All 3 colours are very pretty.
Lastly I went a little crazy for Babylips in B&M, £1.20 each I couldn’t leave them. I think they’re from China / Japan. I haven’t opened them yet so I’m not to sure what flavours I bought. I will try and find out.
So they’re all my April purchases. Have you treated yourself to any new makeup/skincare in April? Let me know & also let me know if you have spotted any bargains, I love hearing about them.
