Shopping Haul and No Makeup Day.

I woke up this morning with an awful dry patch on my chin and around my jawline. Suffice to say, I was not impressed! I *think* I’ve had a reaction to something but not sure what so will have to single out a product to see which it is. I suspect it may be my rose toner. I was going to wear makeup today as was wanting to experience with my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow palette but thought I should give my skin a rest so this is me au naturale:

  

Bar my Yours Truly Organics Fix Me! Repairing Serum, Dr. Hauschka Daily Hydrating Eye Cream and Clinique Moisture Surge Gel Creme.

Despite me still having a cold, my sister and I had a great day yesterday. We went into Scunthorpe and did a bit of shopping before going to the cinema to see Insurgent. I love the top I bought from Select. It’s very Faith from Buffy, I thought. I thought the chemise was so cute and just had to buy. I really want to get a mint green kimono or something to go with the chemise, too. Hehe I’m such a geek and just had to buy the Wonder Woman thongs! It was actually my sister who spotted them and knew I’d love them! The smellies I bought will be birthday or Christmas gifts. The mango one will be for my sister as she loves The Mortal Instruments same as me so will totally get the reference (she got me one too haha!).

Here’s my haul:

Insurgent was good but as with most adaptations, it missed loads out, especially scenes that we book fans were hoping to see! It also included things that weren’t supposed to happen until the third book. So I’ve no idea how the film for Allegiant will pan out especially as it’s being filmed in two parts aswell!

I hope everyone is having a fab weekend!

My Cult Beauty Haul!



I am slowly making my way through my wish list on Cult Beauty. These were my recent purchases:

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner in black – This is great because it’s liquid eyeliner in a pen, basically! So much easier to use! However, the eyeliner started to fade on my lower lashline and didn’t stay on my waterline at all. If anyone has any recommendations as to what I could use on my waterline please let me know. I’ve yet to try this eyeliner on my upper lashline but I imagine it’ll last much longer.

Kevyn Aucoin The Eyelash Curler – I wasn’t getting on with my other curler as it had a spring action to it and the rubber bit was too wide so it failed at curling my eyelashes. This eyelash curler by Kevyn Aucoin is sooo much better!

GinVera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel – I am so excited about using this! I’ve heard so many great reviews that I can’t wait to use it in the morning! I bought this because I wanted to use something that was gentle on my skin but would still exfoliate.

Have any of you tried these products? What did you think to them?
