Anyway, I went shopping today- mostly with intention of purchasing the items I want for my 100 follower giveaway (which should be posted tomorrow) but somewhat inevitably I also bought a few things for myself... because obviously I need more nail polish and lip balm in my life!
|NYC Lights-Camera-Glitter and Rosy Knows, No7 Stand Back|
I've been wanting NYC Lights-Camera-Glitter for a while now and my Superdrug finally had it in stock-when I noticed that the NYC Expert Last range was on 2 for £2.99 (£2.49 for one) I really couldn't say no.
This is a beautiful glitter polish- there's lots of small silver glitter, with larger bright blue and some lavender glitter particles.
None of the other shades particularly grabbed me (the range is mostly basic colours) but I picked out Rosy Knows (cute name!) and since getting it home I'm really glad that I did- it's not actually similar to any pinks I own (surprising considering I've filled a whole nail wheel with my pinks!) It's a lovely deep raspberry pink shade :) Despite the roundness of the lids (which I usually hate- like the Models Own polish bottles) I think I'll like the lid for application, because it's shorter I can still get a decent grip on them- I'll see how the actual polish works for me though.
I also went to boots and picked up some boring essentials (including a Neutrogena Visibly Clear face wash for me, and a Clean and Clear daily scrub for my sister) so I got myself a £5 off No7 voucher. Naturally I couldn't not use it, and I picked out Stand Back, it's fairly similar to Models Own Feeling Blue, but is actually a lot more teal than it's showing in the picture (that's what I get for reading in daylight hours instead of taking pictures!) it's a beautiful colour! And will probably be my next NOTD :)
|MUA Love Hearts Lip Balm in Sugar Lips|
Superdrug also finally had the MUA Love Hearts range in stock- all 6 polishes and 4 of the lip balms. I didn't purchase any of the polishes as they are all essentially dupes of what I already have, but I did buy a lip balm- I chose Sugar Lips which is a lovely pastely pink shade.
The balm doesn't seem to offer any pigment to the lips (I imagine the darker shades would though, I did pick one of the lightest options) but the scent, taste (or lack thereof) and moisturising more than makes up for it. They smell rather convincingly of vanilla cake- yum! but don't have a taste at all, and they are actually rather moisturising so far, if Superdrug has any different shades available next time I'm in I think I might have to buy another!
What have you been buying recently? And what have you been reading recently? (I have a feeling I'll be finishing The Hunger Games trilogy soon and I'll need something to fill the void)
