Ahh... desperate need for a good 'ole shopping trip!

Friday 30 April 2010

With exams approaching and a dance show next weekend I just have no time to go shopping, even though I seriously deserve a bit of retail therapy after all that walking I did last weekend! So I thought I'd do a little post about all the things I want, just to cheer myself up a bit before I go off to revise... :/

Here goes...

Superdrug Vitamin E Moisture Cream
I'm in need of a good new moisturiser and I've been hearing a lot about this little cream, and it has an added bonus- SPF 15, great as its coming up to summer!

(sorry about the tiny piccie)
Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Spot Wand
I was searching for a good replacement for my normal spot treatment, freederm gel, which I have run out of and needed a change, and I stumbled across this. The reviews have intrigued me enough to buy it and try it out, so i'll see if it actually works. Has anyone tried it, if so what do you think?

ELF Blush And Bronzer Compact
I'm going slightly ELF crazy, after having discovered the dirt cheap website around a month ago, I have been desperate to try out some of the products, so once I have a bit of spare change I will definitely be trying this.

ELF Cream Eyeliner (Black)
I'll also be picking up this gorgeous little thing, as *SHOCK HORROR* I've never actually tried a cream eyeliner before! I thought that this, for only £3.50, was a good way to introduce myself to this new type of makeup and I'm so excited! :D
I'm not actually sure whether to get black or brown, I have dark brown eyes, any suggestions?

GOSH Lipstick in Darling
Dubbed the perfect nude lipstick, I am literally wetting myself trying to getta hold of this! I will definitely be buying this in the near future as i am a HUGE fan of nude lips!

NARS Orgasm Blush
This HAS to be one of my dream make-up products, but sadly my budget just will not stretch :( Oh well... a girl can dream... hehe.

MAC Well Dressed Blush
And... another one that I can only dream about, oh well one day I WILL get this :)

Tresemme Heat Tamer Protective Spray
I really really really need a good new heat protectant for my hair, as I want it to grow quickly but stay lovely and healthy while I'm using heat, so hopefully this will solve that problem!

So that's my long list of all my much needed products I will hopefully purchase soon! Do you have any other suggestion as to products that are reasonably priced but are great quality??

Thanks for reading :):)

  1. I lovee cream/gel eyeliners! I'm really considering trashing all my pencils! It takes a bit to get used to but they stay on all day.

    Definitely get NARS orgasm! it's a bit pricey, but it's worth it and last forever. I've been using mine almost everyday since december and still haven't hit pan.

  2. @Kaitlyn- Im so excited to try the cream eyeliner! :) And im definately going to try and save up for it! It looks so pretty! :)) xx

  3. I suggest the black eyeliner. It will help make your brown eyes stand out. Plus it will go really well with the nude lip. Like a 60s look.
    I want that Nars blusher too but its too expensive :( x

  4. Isn't ELF great? I just ordered 2 makeup brushes, a brush holder, and an eyebrow kit from them last week and everything is wonderful. Not to mention... so cheap! Also, if you sign up for emails from them, I keep getting really great deals from them emailed to me.. like a bunch of free stuff you can get if you order $20 worth of products and stuff like that. I have been looking at gel eyeliners lately, and I think I'm with you and this will probably be the first one I try next time I order from this company. I just got NARS orgasm blush too, keep it on your list, someday you will love it!
    Cute blog, I am following!

  5. @me:)- haha, ok i'l go for the black! :) and i know, i wish i had all the money in the world to spend on make-up! :(

    @Jennifer- yeah, im so excited about my new, cheap ELF products hehe, and oh i'l definately be signing up for email, ahh lucky you! Im definately going to get NARS Orgasm one day! :) Thankyou! :):)


  6. Hi Hannah iv just seen that you want to try the gel liner by elf..i wouldn't its not great very patchy and does not last!

    Mac gel line is thee best ever not too expensive either and they do loads of colours. A good cheaper version is by Avon i had the avon one first and i loved it!

    hope this helps : )
