I kinda went shopping... well I went to the seaside yesterday which happened to be home to a few shops, where I broke my spending ban already but the place wasn't somewhere I go often, so it was a case of 'YOLO'! (Cringe...)
My family and I strolled around the town, looking for a decent fish and chip shop when I came across a small (I believe individual) shop. IT WAS HEAVEN. They had a HUGE range of nail polishes, including a few shelves full of Sinful Colors and even the whole Revlon Top Speed range as well as many others for £1.99. They had some gorgeous Revlon glitters, but I knew they would be something I would only wear once so I managed to stay away. They had so many products, most from America as some items said 'Target exclusive' and things like that. I could have spent all day in there. I still came home with a Sinful Colors polish called 'Daredevil' which is on my nails now and is the brightest neon pink I own. It is amazing, but incredibly hard to photograph!
I had to mess about with brightness and contrast in the above picture, but the colour is now quite accurate to real life!
Also in the store, they had the entire Dainty Doll range, all under £5! They even had the Wonderbalm, which I was so tempted by! In the end I left the shop quite content actually, with the last of the 3 cream blushes to complete my collection called 'Billion Dollar Babies' and a lipstick, called 'It's My Party' which was a beautiful cross between a red and a pink I could not leave behind. These two items were £2.99 each which wasn't as cheap as Fragrance Direct, but if you add postage it only works out a penny more expensive than if you got it online.
Here's a few images of the lippy...
(Sorry about the blurriness, my camera is good in natural light but as soon as the sun begins to go down, it struggles!)
And now the cream blush in 'Billion Dollar Babies'
As you can see, the colour of the cream blush is a taupe which I purchased to contour with. It is a lot more natural and subtle than my Sleek Face Form contour colour, so it is great for the more innocent makeup days.
The seaside trip didn't go to plan and we left earlier than expected, but on the brightside, we stopped off at an outlet centre. It had a few shops, the main ones being The Body Shop and another makeup discount store. To my sadness, it wasn't a CCO but similar to the one I had been in earlier. Realising I needed at least one of the Revlon glitters in my life, I purchased 'Sparkling' which I have wanted for a long time but I managed to save a lot of money, as it was £1.99!
Lastly, I walked past The Body Shop and popped in, which I always do but seldom by much at all. I found a set of 4 'Born Lippy' lip balms, which were £4.80! I couldn't let this bargain slip, so I got the pack which also contained another colour I already own, so the reason why you only see 3 here is because the other will be going into my giveaway.
That's all then! I'm really sorry I haven't been posting much, life really does get in the way which I know everyone says, but it's truthful!
Talk to you all soon, thank's for reading!
