A cheeky little saturday shop!

This Saturday just gone I popped to the shops even though I really shouldn't have as it's nearing the end of the month (well in my pay roll anyways so more metaphorical than literal) and the pennies are waning :(
  I really didn't purchase much; I limited myself to Boots and Superdrug which in hingsight is probably the worst idea possible, need I say more?  I got the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner, Sleek Blush in Flushed, Sleek Sunset Pallette, QVC nail file, eye pencil sharpener and No7 Stay Perfect in Stand Back.
  Now, I have big things to say for this nail polish!  My friend was wearing this the other day and the colour being so bright of course it didn't get past me and there I was expecting her to tell me it was OPI but alas it was No7! She then went on to tell me she had only used one coat and it really did look fabulous so I just had to go out and get myself some of this.  Also at Boots for the past couple of months, they have been giving out £5 off No7 vouchers willy nilly so this nail polish only cost me a couple of quid and boy do I love it!  I have never actually owned a bright blue polish before but this met all my needs and more ;)  I actually applied two coats just because I prefer it like that but I didn't use a base coat and when I took it off today my nails were a lovely tinged greeny blue colour, not so sexy . . . so definitely use a base coat with this badboy!

  This is the Sleek Blush in Flushed, I've never owned a Sleek blush before but I have heard good things about them and I own the Bad Girl eye shadow pallette and I was very pleasently suprised by how pigmented all the colours were so I thought why not give it a go!  I picked up this one as it has red undertones and I don't (think) I've owned a blush with red undertones in it!  Haven't yet tried this on my actual cheeks but will probably try it with a look very soon so watch this space . . .

And this little beaut is the Sleek sunset pallette, wasn't too drawn in by the crazy random blue but I do have a couple of singular blue eyeshadows that it could work with and after all what would a sunset pallette be without a blue to represent the sky :) Am in love with the crimson shades which are very in this Autumn so look forward to an Autumn eye tutorial or even a sunset eye tutorial, how cliche ;)

  1. I swear by Aussie shampoos and have that exact same no 7 nail varnish! Its gorgeous but I sweep a bit of Barry M 'blue glitter' over it to give it a touch of glitter :)
