Make-up Haul

So as promised here are the pictures of the goodies I picked up yesterday. I was quite happy with the products I bought, I got a nice range of eye-shadow colours, lipsticks/glosses and some other bits. My hands were covered with a multitude of products by the end of the day, I looked like I hadn't showered in weeks!

I'm pleased as punch with my bubblegum pink case, it's by Ruby Hammer for Debenhams and is choc full of products, which for £45 I thought was pretty good. I was always a fan of Ruby & Millie products so expect the same quality from these, so will test them all out and let you know what I think in a separate post.
The black compact is also by Ruby Hammer, there are 64 eye shadows, then it opens out to unveil 4 blushers, 8 lipglosses, 2 face powders and 2 bronzers. Quite good non?

Ruby Hammer vanity case

After hearing so much about Lush's bubblegum lip scrub I thought it would be rude not to give it a try (the smell reminds me of panda pop), and whilst I was there I got myself a bottle of Fantasy from their new make-up range. It is a beautiful gold colour and really vivid when applied to the skin.

I finally got me a Revlon Lip Butter, a bit late to join the party I know but after all the hype I thought I should see what all the fuss is about and purchased shade 090-sweet tart, a beautiful rich candy pink. I also got a Stila fiesta set lip glaze trio, Too Faced natural at night collection, Essie mint candy apple, Barry M dazzle dust 96, L'Occitane cocoa flower lip balm, and a Rituals mandarin & mint foaming shower gel! Phew that's a lot of stuff, I won't go into detailed explanations about everything now. I will test the products out and do some swatches etc and let you know as and when I use them. If there is anything you want me to review straight away, let me know and I will do so.

GBK dinner

Not beauty related, but I thought I would share our refuel dinner from GBK after hauling all those bags of shopping around. An awesome lime shake that tasted like the lime ice-cream on a twister (my fave lolly) so I was very happy to have discovered this! Super skinny fries (shame they don't make you skinny though!) and a yummy bunless pesterella grilled chicken burger with salad and slaw and the most amazing basil mayo! It was all so good I actually felt a little sad about leaving some of my shake and fries and it sparked a debate about would you feel stupid asking for a doggy bag?!? I have never asked for my leftovers to be packed up, and would feel a little too embarrassed to ask.....
Am I the only one?


  1. I have to share my bubble gum lip scrub with the kids! grrrrr lol!

  2. Awww, it is very tasty. Maybe they should have their own one in their Christmas stockings. : )
