So my little trip to London for The Vintage Cosmetic Company Press Day resulted in me breaking my spending ban. What can I say? I did it, and i'd do it again and it was totally worth it!
I don't want to talk too much about what I bought because I will be doing individual posts on most of the items but I wanted to show you what I got as a collective haul so you could see what I broke my ban for!
I picked up three necklaces, a moustasche, silver bunting and two hearts joined together and a set of six pairs of earrings for just over £10. I've been browsing the jewellery section on their website for ages so I knew I wanted to pick up a few pieces. They didn't have the birdcage necklace I wanted but i'm sure i'll be making an online order soon!
I picked up several make-up items here as there was a 3 for 2 on across all make-up ranges. I got another Revlon Nearly Naked foundation but this time I picked it up in Vanilla, the next shade up from Ivory as I think this will suit me better. Also from Revlon I picked up a ColorStay lipstick in shade 095 Finale, it's quite a bright red shade, which i've been wanting to try for a while. Next in the offer I got an MUA Power Pout in the shade Crazy in Love, Sleek's Rose Gold blush, which is supposed to be a good dupe for NARS Orgasm (which I was planning on buying but suddenly felt guilty) and two Maybelline polka dot nail varnishes in Chalk Dust and Speckled Pink.
So happy that I managed to get the Baking Beauties Face Powder in Pink Buttercream. It was sold out online and in Beales in Bournemouth. I can't wait to try it although the design on it is so pretty I almost don't want to spoil it!
I made this sneaky purchase before I met Jaye, i'm really loving coral shades at the moment so i'm looking forward to wearing the nail varnish. I was also going to buy the Topshop blush stick but after looking at the shades I thought they were a bit too bright for me, so settled on a cream blush in Morning Dew instead.
A shop I had never heard about until Jaye told me about it and somewhere you can buy Bioderma. I haven't tried it before and was planning on getting a large bottle of it but it was completely sold out. In the end, I had to ask the shop assistant to delve into the window display to get the last little bottle - success! Once i've used this one, i'll probably buy a larger bottle online.
I bought these cute bird earrings and it wasn't until I got them home that I realised they were really similar to the ones I got from Forever 21! I'm still going to wear both pairs though!
I got some new brush heads for my No7 Cleansing Brush as i've had it a few months now and haven't popped into Boots to get new ones. Luckily I had enough Boots points on my card to pay for these!
So thats my London haul, make sure you look out for individual posts I will be doing on these over the next few weeks!
What do you think to my haul? Have you got any of these items?
