Recent Acquisitions ...


I think oops is a word that is appropriate here... in my defence, I won some, I was bought some, ebayed some, had a generous discount code AND a few giftcards... so, it was allowed?... 
Before christmas though I'd not bought anything new in a long time, so I did go a little wild in January. 

I won the Dr Jart Water Fuse BB Cream and Water Max Sleeping Mask in a giveaway over on Peonies and Lilies! (cue major excitement as I never win anything!) The Bumble and Bumble purchases were my ebay bargains of the month, just over £5 for both brand new! I picked up NARS Ashes to Ashes eyeshadow with the student 25% off discount code on ASOS the other week after regretting not buying it at the Trafford Centre after christmas. The Dainty Doll foundation (shade 3) and Mavala Double Lash are my most recent purchases last week with a boots giftcard, the foundation was on offer too, bonus ;). Pulp Friction was a recent gift from my lovely mum (Thank you!). I also picked up the Phyto volumising shampoo for my newly chopped locks, 17's Beehive lipstick to see what all the fuss is about, Origins Tropical Pink blush and the Jemma Kidd Make-up School eyeshadow in Mocha, all at the beginning of the month.

Pretty sure you'll be seeing more of all of these around the blog in the coming months as I've not been disappointed by a single one yet.

Have you had a bit of a beauty "haul" post christmas? Pretty sure I'm on a spending ban now!

  9. I'm curious to see how the Mavala Double Lash goes for you. I've tried Peter Thomas Roth's Lashes to Die For and it didn't work for me. Keep my updated please!
