I was a lazy shopper this year and did all my shopping on line. I love a bargain but the thought of crowds of other shoppers really did not appeal to me. Instead I made myself a coffee (with my tassimo machine – costa at home, joy!) and curled up on the sofa with my laptop and a blanket. This was a far less stressful experience, other than the frustration of not being able to access the Lush website for hours.
Now all my purchases have arrived I decided it would be a good time to share with you what I got. I haven’t included links as unfortunately a lot of these items are sold out.
Space NK –
I have been eyeing up the Laura Mercier Artist palette for eyes & cheeks for a while. So I was delighted to see this in the Space NK sale at a huge 50% discount (£22.49). It didn’t take long for me to decide that this was a do. Unfortunately this has now sold out at this price.
I was also lucky enough to grab one of their gel lip colours in the shade temptation. I’m not sure what I’ve done with the invoice but I think this was around £8. This is a lovely deep plum shade and I am intrigued to see what the gel formula will be like.
I was so restrained with the Illamasque sale, It was so tempting. In then end I was a good girl and settled for one of their powder eyeshadows in the shade Burst. This is a beautiful unique matte teal shade that I’m excited to have in my collection. I love these shadows, they are lovely and soft with great colour payoff.
Like I said earlier, the lush website was being a royal pain. This was one of the sales that I had waited eagerly for though so persevered. I’m so glad I did.
Lastly I picked up a very cute and lovely smelling little angel shimmer bar(4). It’s smells amazing so I can’t wait to use it.
This last item technically wasn’t in the sale but I had a gift voucher so decided to include it. I have read so many great reviews, about this product so have been lusting after ‘the balms – Mary-Loumanizer’ for what seems like forever. I didn’t think this was too badly priced either at £11.98. This included postage as I have an Amazon prime membership.
I am really pleased with what I picked up in the sales. If you want any detailed reviews on any of these items let me know. I’m a nosy little bugger and love this type of post so if you have done similar please link in comments and I would love to check your’s out to.
Bye for now, Katy
