Huds Haul

Great afternoon in Huddersfield with Em. Boots didn't know what had hit them!

It doesn't look like this anymore. Just dropped it and smashed it to fck. Gutted - down to pan in middle.

Picked up Revlon matte shadow in Riviera blue (front) and a satin shadow in Peacock Lustre (back).  No sign of the ColorBurst lipstick in Soft Nude and Rosy Nude looked too pink toned for my licking. Settled on Matte lipstick in Mink.  Revlon was 3 for 2 which was fab.
Revlon Matte Mink.  GOSH Cappuccino

Re-stocked with my fave Avene products; Extremely Gentle Cleanser and Rich Anti-Redness cream and added a Soothing Hydrating Serum which I had really been wanting to try, again 3 for 2 on skin care, result.

I also had to pick up a Botanics cleansing Balm as raved by Welsh Beauty Blogger.  We seem to have pretty similar skin so I am hoping that I can use this without freaking out my skin, even if its just a once a week treat and I use the Avene on a day to day basis.  This smells lovely and I cant wait to try it with my Botanics facial cleansing brush. 

And of course the compulsory purchase of a Clinique Super Fine liner in soft brown seeing as those brows keeping on pulling in the compliments, the lady on the check out in Boots asked what I used.

This lot got me a Boots £5 voucher that went straight back into their tills with my purchase of the Ltd edition gel eyeliner in Blue, am dying to have a play with this.

Em hauled too so we decided to use her £5 voucher to buy Aunty Ness the No 7 Skin Illuminator she had been fancying.

From there we hurtled like a herd of turtles round to Superdrug where I picked up a GOSH lipstick in Cappuccino, which basically looks like it might be my perfect nude or the "fresh from the grave" lippy I have been dying for!

Swatches, reviews and eotd's etc to follow!


  1. Love the Revlon eyeshadow. Gorgeous! I've got the Botanics cleansing balm and it is really nice. Enjoy! x

  2. Hi Leanne. Am so gutted - just dropped Riviere Blue onto bathroom scales and have lost well over a third, down to pan in the middle. Was doing a quick try before cooking dinner, wish I had saved it til later :(

  3. Lovely haul! I'm so sorry to hear about your eyeshadow breakage. You've just reminded what I meant to pick up in Boots, the Botanics Cleanser. I'm so forgetful! I hadn't thought to use my voucher whilst I was in there either, despite already having lusted after a few of the No.7 bits. This is always the folly of going shopping with the Mr! x


Would love to hear from you, I always read comments and reply and I love not feeling like I am talking to myself! dx
