A Few Additions

August 25, 2014

After spending an awfully long time swooning over the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Eyeshadow's , I finally decided it was time to become and owner of one myself. I chose the shade Misty Rock, a shimmery pink toned taupe that looks gorgeous blended over the entire lid. The creamy texture and pigmentation is spot on and it doesn't fall short on longevity either - this stuffy pretty much lasts all day without fading or creasing. I've already started eyeing up the other shades...

I was in desperate need of a new shower gel (I was still squeezing out the dregs of my Lush Snow Fairy from Christmas), and though I didn't intend to buy something quite so luxurious, after giving the L'Occitane Hule de Douche Almond shower oil a sniff, the (worryingly) small amount of self restraint that I usually hold disappeared completely. This stuff smells delicious, like almost good enough to eat delicious. I have to admit though, it is a painfully large amount of money for a shower gel, but as a treat, it's perfect. I've been using it quite sparingly and have found it best to keep it hidden as I'm sure Richard has been stealing an occasional blob...

Obviously I don't need more nail polish but who can say no?! For just £3.99 each, the Barry M Gelly Nail Paints are amazing value for money, especially since there's usually some sort of offer floating around too. I picked up the shades Huckleberry (pastel blue) and Coconut (off-white/cream).

So that rounds off a few new additions, though watch this space because unfortunately for my bank balance, but fortunately for my ramblings, I'm sure there will be more shiny new things making an appearance soon.
