I've already explained my reasonings for caving and buying the BBB beauty box here, but seriously, all of that for £15! I'm so happy to finally own something from Illamasqua, Melvita & CND ;)

As for the rest of it? well what can I say? I really needed the Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion as it's been a lifesaver for under the skin spots, the Clarins Toner was on offer & then Boot's had their summer points event! So we made a special trip to a store that was participating & I picked up the new Real Techniques brushes, a S&G gloss stick in bashful & the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer (In my opinion, much better than Collection 2000 as it doesn't oxidise!). All so I could get £7.50 worth of points as I'm saving for Marc Jacobs Honey (if it smells nice!) I think I have just enough now but we'll have to see when it comes out sooooon! 

Of course there have been some cracking magazine freebies this month! I picked up the eyeko eyeliner & Balance Me face wash (which isn't pictured). THEN I completely caved a few days ago on Naturisimo.com & ordered the incredible/amazing RMS Beauty 'Un' Powder (I had money just sitting there in paypal with no purpose in life... it was completely justified, don't you judge me!) & also got a free Dr. Bronners soap, my fave for washing my makeup brushes. I also ordered a sample of the Vapour Illusionist Concealer in 010, it's so lovely, pale and perfect coverage. I'm officially a natural/organic makeup convert. More please! 

But then of course I 'nipped' into boots on Friday and came away with another Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick, this time in Fuchsia-ristic. I really like how they feel on the lips, though I promise that's the last thing for a while! Maybe... I really like the look of the RMS lip2cheeks, and 'un' cover up... ;)

Have you bought anything recently?? 


  1. So much buying! I'm so jealous. Having said that though, I do have three different orders coming in the post this week! I'm very excited x


  2. It's great that you're starting to try out natural/organic makeup! I have a sample of the Vapour concealer too, not got around to trying it yet but it sounds like a good one! I'm lusting after RMS lip2cheek and 'un' cover-up too! Heard such amazing things about them so can't wait to add them to my collection :)

  3. You have had fun! :)
    I haven't tried the Soap and Glory Gloss sticks but I'ce heard some very good things about them. I can't believe the Clarins toner was on offer, I missed that as I would have picked it up.

  10. I am sooo jealous you managed to get a BBB box, I love that blog and the box is seriously incredible but they were all sold out by the time I read the blog post!
    I bought the Clarins toner recently too after trying a sample and I made an order on Naturisimo the other day as well, only recently came across the site and it's great!
    I was looking at Mario Badescu products the other day and am tempted to buy something (can't remember what it's called) as I've heard good things.
    LOVED this post :)

  11. Such an amazing box, I really want to get one of these! x
