Get down from your tree house sittin' in the sky
Just a short and sweet post today - gosh I hate that phrase but i'm freezing cold and I can't think of anything more imaginative at the moment.
I went shopping with my boyfriend and his brother on Thursday night with the intentions of coming home empty handed. AS IF! I can't resist a peeky nose in Boots especially when its 3 for 2. I was so happy that the entire Models Own mirrorball collection was in stock and also the new Wonderland collection. Without a seconds thought, I picked up Hot Stuff, Southern Lights and Jack Frost and swiftly made my way to the checkout. I painted my nails with Jack Frost last night and it looked absolutely awful. It came out really blue but it was over a burgundy nail varnish.
I cheekily asked my boyfriend if he'd treat me to this £2.99 Giles lipstick when he was purchasing some jumpers in New Look. When the girl scanned it, it came up as 50p, bargain or what?! I really do love the shade of this. I can't wait to wear it.
Since the Nail Constellation's are now out and MUA had an offer on at the time, I couldn't resist spending a tenner on a few bits. I haven't really bought anything from MUA for a while apart from the palettes. The love hearts products were all free if you spent over £10 and I'm actually really happy with them. The lip balm is really sheer so it'll be nice for days when I want a natural face day. I'll probably pop the nail varnishes away for next Summer. I instantly fell in love with this nail varnish when I saw it online. I'm so happy with it and I honestly will wear this all the time in Winter. £1 too, MUA is the best!
How beautiful is the shade of lipstick?! I'm on the hunt for a perfect plum colour and I reckon this is pretty close. I just love it, again for a £1, dream come true. Also picked up this lipgloss, it's an intense kisses one and the colour is amazing. Possibly going to need to buy the whole collection. At £2 a pop for colour like this, can I really resist? No!
My whole reason for this order was the nail constellation. I picked this one up in Pisces but I do want the whole collection. I haven't tried it out so I'm yet to give an opinion so a separate post coming up on that soon.
One thing I am pretty disappointed with is this bronzer. I've only swatched it on my arm but it just looks so pointless. I'm hoping it picks up better on my cheeks. Have any of you tried this?! Let me know what you think of it.
I love how I said this was short and sweet, such a lie. Hope you've all had a nice weekend!
