What I bought in London
what would be a trip away without a little haul? for some, shopping might be the biggest torture and something they don’t want to do when having free time but I L O V E it. shopping and buying things I wanted for ages is part of the whole experience and treating myself feels so much better when being away. I also don’t really have time to properly shop and browse being at home so I like taking the chance. when I went to London recently, I had to just shop around a bit and I actually bought most in duty-free. usually, I don’t do the whole duty-free thing but I had to get a few things anyway so I figured I would save some money whilst shopping too. Because I absolutely love seeing what people buy, I thought I would share everything I have bought with you.
I always have to go to Space NK when being in England. Some high-end beauty is just the best treat and their stores offer such a brilliant variety. staying very close to Westbourne Grove, I had to pop into the store there. I was served by a very lovely lady from by terry named Candice. not only was the service absolutely incredible, but I also walked out with a beautiful product I have wanted for ages thanks to the goddess that is Lydia Elise Millen. its the by terry brightening cc serum in apricot glow. it’s pricey but oh boy, it is amazing. I use it on its own and under makeup and the glow it gives is utterly beautiful. it also smells so good and feels so luxurious to use.
One store I always make it to is the big Topshop at Oxford street. its a bit overwhelming but has such great stock. when I saw the shell jewelry last year, I knew I wanted it too but I wouldn’t want to invest in the real deal. Topshop has amazing shell pieces in and they won’t break the bank at all. I got some earrings and a necklace and I can’t wait for summer or at least warmer days so I can wear them.
So I went a bit ham in duty-free but it was worth it. I am about to run out of my favourite ever foundation. it’s the Nars natural radiant long wear foundation. ars just does foundations right. they all work wonders on my skin but this one is by far my favourite. it has the perfect coverage and makes my skin look its best. it’s so glowy and goes on so smoothly. I adore it.
Another product I have recently run out off is a setting spray and I can’t go without one. By far the best is Urban Decay allnighter. It just does the job right and its the best one I have tried so far.
when I was waiting in line to check out, I was sucked in by a few products sitting there. one is the cutest little hello kitty tangle teezer. The tangle teezer is the only brush I will use on my hair and having it in a sweet design makes it even better.
I also felt like trying a new mascara and because I liked all benefit mascaras so far and haven’t tried the badgal bang mascara before so I went for it. so far, I really enjoy using it as it won’t smudge down my eyes and gives me so much length and volume.
have you tried any of those products recently? let me know what you think of them. what have you bought for yourself recently? I would love to know.
