I've picked up a few make up and beauty bits lately, a mixture of replacing things as they have run out, freebies and things I've wanted for a while. It's a fairly budget haul, mainly I have been spending way too much time (and money!) in Boots!
From left to right.
Mac Lipstick - Ladybug
I finished off another six (eek!) Mac products - mainly eyeliners and makeup removers which I re-buy religiously - and so popped in to back to mac those puppies into a brand new lipstick. I picked Ladybug, which is my first Lustre formula, a really pretty everyday red. I've worn it a lot to weddings recently - as it looks great for day time when you want to dress up a bit, but not look like you are going on a night out with your make up.
Tangle Teaser Compact
I already have a the wet hair version of the tangle teaser and I love it so much I've been wanting to get the portable version for a while. What spurred me into purchasing was embarrassingly I'm getting a new work profile photo done next week (Finally! My current one is five years old and was taken on a very bad hair day.) and I wanted to have a little hair brush I could take to work with me to ensure everything is in place to avoid the same thing happening again. I love that it has a little protector which slots over the bristles to avoid you getting hand bag detritus in your hair brush.
Malin and Goetz
These little minis were free with a magazine (Elle I think), and are coming in handy as I am travelling for work a lot this month. It's a little lip salve, moisturiser and cleanser, and so far I've only tried the lip salve but I really like it. They don't really have a scent, and everything has quite a medicinal feel, but in a luxurious way. From the packaging to the products it gives the sense that they will really work.
Seventeen Stay Time Concealer
Oh look, this was in my last make up lately post, and here it is again! The fact that I have used it up completely and repurchased is a very good sign. It gives decent coverage without being cakey or too thick, and the price is really good.
No. 7 Stay Perfect mascara and Shade and Define eye crayon
This mascara is another old favourite and a rebuy after my old one got really gross (I kept it way longer than I should have! Sorry eyes!) It is the only mascara which I have found which doesn't smudge or flake at all on Boots were doing a buy one get one half price deal on No. 7, so I also picked up this eye crayon to try out. I like the idea of the crayon but the colour pay off is not great. I regret not getting a darker colour.
Hand Maid Cleansing Gel
I picked this up on three for two with a little mini shampoo and conditioner. There is nothing worse than being ill when you are away from home so I went a bit nuts purchasing things for my travels to try and avoid getting ill. I like that the smell of thing isn't too antiseptic.
