Make-Up Can Help Heal a Broken Heart Right?

Hello! I have a huge gap at college and I'm not due back until 2 o'clock, there is no homework to be done, so I thought I would do a nice little blog post on my recent beauty buys. I went to Harrogate for the weekend a few weeks back, and it was not long after I had split up with my boyfriend. So, I went mad with the spending and I must admit it did make me feel better. I literally couldn't care less! I also bought lots of  jumpers and boots ready for Autumn too (I will do another blog post later this week!). I have curbed my spending now as I'm coming to terms with things and being skint isn't going to make things any better ha!

L-R Barry M Lipstick in 53, Accessorize Lipstick in Smitten and Barry M Lipstick in 147

Now, you may think that these are all the same shade. But I have been on the hunt for some coral toned lipsticks for quite a while and I saw Smitten reviewed by Jessica French and it looked perfect. I was trawling through all of the comments and saw that people were saying that the Barry M lipstick in 147 was similar. And then I just got carried away...

Mineralized Skin Finish in Rose Quartz and Lustre Glass in Love Nectar

On our way home from Harrogate, we stopped off at the York Outlet. I could not wait to see what the Cosmetics Company Store had in. There was so many pretty MSF's that I must have spent 20 minutes deciding. I use it to highlight the tops of my cheekbones. I know that Love Nectar is a favourite of Tanya Burr's and it is such a gorgeous colour with slight flecks of glitter in.

L-R Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze, Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light and Jemma Kidd Shimmer Shadow in Creme

After using some BB cream samples which I got from Maybelline's Facebook, it really encouraged me to buy the real thing. It is amazing! And a perfect colour match too. I bought the Jemma Kidd eyeshadow from CheapSmells and I've only used it a couple of times but so far so good! The 24hr Tattoo does what it says on the tin. It's such a gorgeous silvery-bronzey colour (is that even possible?) and lasts all day - even on oily eyelids like mine!

L-R Lipstick in Pillow Talk, Lipstick in Brighton Rock and Blusher in Prime Time

I then made a cheeky Topshop order and bought the much raved about Pillow Talk and the two other products. At first sight, Brighton Rock looks like it could be a dupe for MAC's Impassioned but I need to investigate this further.

I'm just waiting a Fragrace Direct order to which I have purchased Essie's Mademoiselle, a Calvin Klein nail polish and my favourite mascara at the minute, Bourjois 1001 Lashes. Hurry Mr Postman! And my Avon order should also come soon but my rep is on holiday - I've ordered yet more lipsticks!

It has been nice to write this post - it is taking my mind off things! I think I'm going to do a clothing haul later this week full of all the lovely items that I bought whilst in Harrogate.

Take care

Love, Juliette xo

  2. I also used the BB samples & I ended up buying the full product!. I also really enjoy it, but I am saving it for my holiday in two weeks. <3


    1. I am so glad I ordered the samples first! But is such a brilliant product - like you say, perfect for holidays and light, fresh skin! xxx

  3. I know what you mean about treating yourself when you're down - I totally think it's ok! :) Hehe. You got some great things - what do you think of Pillow Talk? xo

    1. Aw, well I am glad we share the same thoughts!
      I have only worn it once, and my first impression was that it needed warming up slightly because it was dragging on my lips. Apart from that, I think it is such a pretty, everyday colour :)

  4. Wonderful post dear :)
