So first of all, I told you all how I wasn't feeling too well the other day...
Well it turns out to be SWINE! ='(
A week locked indoors! The timing couldn't be worse.. I have mountains of uni work to be doing bleh!
Here is my haul for the last week...
These are the beauty bits. Iv also bought quite a lot of clothes/shoes etc and will probably show them in another post =)
For the past few months my skin has been awful. One day it would be dry and flaky and the next, breakouts! not good! I have been trying all sorts of brands, mixing and matching and I think this is where the problem lays.
I have previously used Clinique before, I had a skin consultation which the lady assigned me to 'type 3' this is for a more oilier type. After 2 weeks of use it dried out my skin and it would often feel tight. I took the products back and she swapped it for skin 'type 2' which is for more normal/combination. It did my skins wonders. I used this for about a year. Im not sure why I haven't just stuck to it?! Iv been using this for 4 days now and my skin has totally cleared up =D
Rohto Lycee eyedrops, One normal and one for contacts. Eyedrops is an essential in my make-up bag. I apply them before make up =)
I also got my 1st ever elf haul. elf has always had rave reviews but I always thought 'I don't need it' (I should think like this more often)
Once the studio line was launched, reviews were everywhere and I decided that I do need some elf in my life. I ordered 3 brushes, 1 from the studio line and 2 from standard elf. A golden bronzer thrown in too so that I can proudly say I own some elf makeup =p
The quality of elf products have taken me by surprise, Not only are the products cheap and affordable, the quality is actually pretty amazing! I plan to use the bronzer as 4 diffrent colours instead of the big swirled one, I find that when the colours are combined together it becomes rather shimmery.
Shimmer + My oily face = Big NONO
Next up we have a mirror I have been eyeing up for too long...
Whilst browsing the boots website last night I said aloud:
'omg, the mirror I want is half price.It was £50, its now only £25, I need to buy it when Im feeling better and can actually be let out the house'
Not realising my bf was actually paying attention to my make-up talk (for once) he went out and bought me it! Totally surprised when he came home with it when he was supposedly going out to get me some food.
I tested it and Im worried about the 'artifcial lighting' Its rather yellow, not as bright as I thought. Have any of you got this and what do you think of it? The 5X magnified side made plucking my eyebrows a dream thou =)
My fave mascara =) Majolica Majorca Lash expander....
I also picked up a sleek storm pallette for my contest winner, they seem to be sold out everywhere! it took me a whole week to track one down and now I finally have it, Im not able to leave the house to send it! great....
