A Little London Beauty Haul

On Saturday I ventured up to London with Holly - you can read about all the bloggy things we got up to here - but we obviously, also had to do a spot of shopping! I didn't go too crazy, which for me, is a miracle! However, I did buy a few little things that I thought I'd share with you today!

Lush Christmas Penguin - £2.95
I've had this on my to buy list for a while, as it's just so cute! While I was in Lush I spotted quite a few bath ballistics I liked the look of, but for me - nothing beats a good ol' bubble bar! This is a really clean citrusy scent which is completely different to my usual go-to bubble bar: Candy Mountain.

Bourjois 24hr Cream Eyeshadow - £6.99
I love Mac paintpots. But I couldn't justify buying another, a couple of weeks after my last, so a trip to Boots for the next best thing was definitely needed! I bought the shade: Petale de Glace - it's a gorgeous soft pink, with beautiful shimmer running throughout it. These are also a cream to powder formula, which always goes down in my good books.

MUA Matte Lipstick - £1
Yep. What a bargain. If you've ever read any of my previous posts you'll know that Costa Chic is one of my favourite lipsticks ever. And when I saw this little beauty was a similar colour - just without the frosty sheen, I just had to buy it! There weren't any testers of these lipsticks so I'm not entirely sure what the texture is like. But as for the shade Peachy Keen is beautiful. 

MUA Blush Perfection - £2
Yet another MUA dupe. I use Bourjois' cream blush in 01 every single day, and yet again this is a similar colour so I was just interested to see how these compare. I mean for a couple of pounds, there's no harm in giving this a go. This lovely peachy pink shade is called Dolly, and I can't wait to see what it looks like on!

Natural Collection Liquid Eyeliner - £1.99
Okay, so here's the repurchase. I've used this eyeliner everyday for months, and I just love it. It's a really dark black and lasts all day on my lids. It's relatively easy to apply, but then again. making my eyeliner symmetrical is the bane of my life. (I've just realised I've never really mentioned this before, so I'll definitely have to do a little post including swatches!)

Have you bought anything recently?
