The Impulsive Haul

After what seemed like a life time between paydays, I knew I needed a little bit of a splurge. My mental list of things that I needed to buy disappeared and I was faced with endless amounts of makeup and beauty products *dream* and a time limit of twenty-five minuets, this is what I ended up with...

Every beauty blogger goes a little crazy when Boots have 3for2, I am no different. Although my local store seemed to be a little bare, I was finally able to purchase the Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balms. Possibly the most spoke about product of 2014, I picked up the shade Audacious; a bright orange and Elusive; a muted pink. Although I am still yet to give them a proper run for their money, they already have a thumbs up from me. 
With a craving for a pale pink polish and a 'love at first sight' moment, I added the Rimmel Salon Pro by Kate Nail Polish in New Romantic to my collection. Not only is the name sweet as can be, the shade is beautifully feminine and chic and the same time. 

Having seen the the Clarins Daily Energizer Cream pop up on a few blogs lately, I knew that it would be right up my street. A radiance boosting cream, targeted at younger skin and filled with Vitamin C... this has become my new AM  moisturizer and so far, I am loving it. 
With my fingers secretly crossed, I asked whether they happened to have the Clinique Take The Day Off Balm in stock and done a little hop, skip and a jump when I was handed one. I have been trying to get my hands on this for months now after hearing such amazing things, I don't want to say too much just yet but this stuff is ah-mazing.

Does anyone else find themselves unable to walk past a MAC counter? I have to walk through them. I also have to stop at the lipstick stand, every single time. This passing saw the purchase of Peach Blossom. An unbeatable natural pink shade with hues of peach, perfect for spring. 
I also picked up the MAC Brow Pencil in Lingering. I was recommended this after saying 'I want to try a brow pencil, I don't have one, nor have I ever used one', so far I like it but I don't love it. I think I need a little more practice...

I think another shopping trip is in order, to get the things that I 'need' of course.

  20. I also just purchased MAC's brow pencil in Lingering. Some days I love it, and some days I hate it. Honestly, I can't tell what my opinion is about it. I'd love to see another post about it when you have used it for a while!
