I decided a month of buying no make up (except my MAC last week) wasn't good for me and I treated myself with a trip to Boots. As usual my one is appalling at stocking their shelves and I found hardly anything I was looking for. In recent weeks when I take my eye make up off my eyes are becoming really irritated and sore resulting in a big allergic reaction. I usually wear an eyeshadow with glitter in so I tried using MAC paint pots and it made such a difference when I took my make up off. So I thought of all the products similar that I could buy to wear. MAC only has a handful of colours in their paint pots and I already have Bare Study which is the only colour I like. Benefit have discontinued their Creaseless eyeshadows as I was going to buy some of them, but the girl in Debenhams (Boots were as ever, very unhelpful) said they are re-launching. I have a few of the Maybelline 24 hour Color Tattoos so went to look and found a few new colours. They have a pretty violet blue but I always think blue is an old lady colour! I opted for a pinky golden colour and can't wait to see how it looks on. If you have any ideas let me know. I don't wear powder eyeshadow as it creases really fast and I don't have time in the morning so I like something I can just wash over the lid or blend with another colour in seconds.
I'll be putting my domestic goddess hat on later as I'm cooking a meal for the family and my boyfriend and then making a picnic for the zoo. I love cooking and making yummy food but I hardly ever have time with work. I'm hoping to be in a food coma all week!
I'm so looking forward to some quality time with my boyfriend as we only have a few evenings a week we see each other for a few hours. We always have so much fun together. I can't wait not to be dragging myself out of bed at half six and doing my own thing. Not long until Easter either so that'll be more time off. And could someone have a word with the weather man its still so cold and I hate it!
I placed another order in an attempt to find the perfect jeans at George at Asda. I LOVE this pair, they look and feel amazing but not tried them on yet. They look like they'll be really skinny on which I love.
Everyone and their dog has been talking/tweeting/blogging/raving about Rimmel Apocalips but even though I bought one I didn't like it. Firstly I was in a rush to get home and grabbed this when the rack thinking I was taking Celestial but when I opened it the next day I was gutted to see I had Nova. Add this to the fact I applied it before work and hated it. It was too bright and I couldn't take it off. Plus I couldn't keep an eye on what it was doing while I was busy. However I used it the other day (not at work) and fell in love with it. Such a pretty pink that really suits me. It lasted a good few hours and wasn't as drying as I thought it might be. I'm now thinking of getting some other colours and continuing my new braveness with red lips I'd like a red one.
Garnier Moisture Match £3.99 Superdrug (£2 off RRP)
Garnier have released five new products to suit every skin type. I don't tend to have a set type as it varies with the season, my diet and my life in general. I couldn't decide between this one and the yellow one Protect and Glow. I went for this one as I like the idea of a gel. I adore Garnier products they always work for me and smell amazing.
So that's my week! Such a good spender again!
Hope you've all had good weeks
