Haul of Plenty!

When I went out last Friday, I went shopping to 2 different places - Bristol & Bath. Both places have an amazing choice of shops and each one has a MAC counter & SpaceNK! Without further ado, here's what I got...

Kerastase Chroma Sensitive Cleansing Balm

I have just used this and I love it already : ) I had my hair done on Saturday, so I have to use this for the next 3 washes. As you don't need conditioner afterwards, it's going to save me lots of time. Result! I'm almost tempted to buy another one as back-up!

NARS & ZOYA Nail Polishes

On the left is 'Arabesque' by NARS and 'Ali' by ZOYA is on the right. This photo does not really do either of these gorgeous nail polishes justice!

'Arabesque' is a beautiful rose-gold glittery polish and 'Ali' is a hot-pink.

This photo is a little clearer to how the colours look in real life. The glitter particles in 'Arabesque' seem to be perfectly round and create such a gorgeous shimmer. I'm still wearing 'Malaysian Mist' by OPI and I think that a coat or 2 of 'Arabesque' over the top would look fabulous. 'Ali' is a true neon-pink and I can't wait to wear it. It's not a work colour, so if I wear it one weekend it will have to come off by Monday : )

MAC & NARS Goodies

I got 3 eyeshadows - Satin Taupe, Sable & All That Glitters, a Pro Palette to put them in, Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20, Studio Fix Fluid foundation in NW20, NARS eyeshadow in Nepal and one of MAC's new cream blushes - Cremeblend Blush in So Sweet, So Easy. I wasn't intending to buy this blush, but the salesgirl was wearing it and it looked amazing...

The above photo was taken without the flash and the main photo was taken with the flash. The pigmentation is amazing and although it's a hot pink, it looks so lovely on.

I was planning on getting a lipstick in 'Playing Koi' from their new Quite Cute range, but that doesn't hit counters until Thursday. I think the salesgirl said this Thursday, but it could be next Thursday!

Ma Bar Bubble Bar from LUSH

I had a good look round LUSH and this was the only thing I fancied buying. I've already used a chunk of this and it smells lovely. I didn't get anything else as I have a tonne of other LUSH goodies to use up and I don't want to let them go to waste.

I also got some clothes in the GAP sale - a t-shirt, trousers for work & a pair of patent-pink flats, some gloves from Topshop (which I wanted when they were full-price and they were a bargain at just £1 a pair!), a box of 15 cookies from Ben's Cookies, and some toiletries from Boots (razor blades, Sanctuary Bath Soak and some Nivea Body Lotion for my mum).

Hope you all had a great weekend x
