Happy Monday lovelies!… Another week has begun! Over the weekend I went on a little shopping trip and wanted to share what I bought with you all. Most of the items I picked up are beauty related but I also purchased a lovely journal from kikki.K and finally decided on a phone case.
One of the first stops had to be the MAC counter. Ever since I got Syrup a few months ago I’ve been hooked and couldn’t wait to pick up another gorgeous lipstick! I almost went for Patisserie over Syrup last time so naturally it had to be my pick this time round. Patisserie is described as a ‘sheer creamy neutral pink’ and has a lustre finish. It looks a little brown in the bullet but shows up lighter when swatched. This colour aims to be quite nude and close to a natural lip colour – I can’t wait to try this out!
Maybelline’s 24Hour Color Tattoo creme eyeshadows are a product I’ve had on my beauty wishlist for a while and I finally picked some up over the weekend. I picked up two shades from the Metal collection: 55 Inked In Pink and 70 Barely Branded. Inked In Pink is a beautiful shimmery pink with a hint of copper and rose gold. Barely Branded is a more neutral everyday, champagne type shade. I prefer shimmery shades over matte (most of the time) as mattes can make my small eyes look heavy and shimmer helps to brighten and open them up.
I hadn’t planned on buying a new mascara but there was a 3 for 2 deal on Maybelline products so I thought why not take advantage of it? I only ended up having to pay for the mascara and one of the colour tattoos. I’ve heard good things about ‘The Falsies’ and look forward to giving it a go!
Ever since I fell in love with The Body Shop at the beginning of the year I’ve been dying to try a product from the Strawberry range. Strawberries are one of my favourite fruits and the sweet smell of this range reels me in every time. I purchased a Strawberry Lip Butter and the smell is incredible – not overpowering and lingers when worn on the lips. I have to admit I couldn’t wait to try this one out and put some on on Saturday night.
A couple of weeks ago I used up the last of my Shea body butter and replaced it at the weekend. My skin is prone to dryness so I need a body butter that provides plenty of moisture. One of the sales assistants mentioned the Vitamin E range and as soon as I smelled the body butter my mind was made up. The scent is a little floral but relatively neutral so won’t overpower perfumes. This body butter also comes in the prettiest pink tub and even though it says normal skin on the tub it is in fact great for all skin types!
These purchases meant I reached 100 points on my Love Your Body card and I now have a voucher for $10 off my next item from The Body Shop.
I’m sure you all know by now how much I adore cute stationery! I regularly browse through kikki.K’s website and spotted this beautiful light blue journal. I’m a member of the mailing list and I had a coupon for $10 off so I just couldn’t resist. My goal for this journal is to write in it everyday and use it for my thoughts, feelings and anything else I want to record. The cover is soft bonded leather which I thought would make the journal stiff and hard to lay flat but this is not the case. There are over 250 pages intertwined with quotes throughout.
Lili Price White Geometry Chaos phone case
I saw Lily Pebbles post a picture of this phone case on Instagram and I instantly fell in love. I’ve been looking for the perfect case and nothing really jumped out at me until I saw this one. I like the simple pattern and monochrome colours and think it will make my phone look really classy. This case also comes in black with white lines and is available on Lili Price’s website here. If you use the discount code ‘LILYPEBBLES’ you get 10% off!
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the items I picked up in my weekend haul. Be sure to let me know what you got up to this past weekend as well!
