Sunday Shopping

Over the weekend I was looking after Alfie and on Sunday I decided to take him on shopping trip. He is allowed in most shops as long as I carry him. Luckily for me he decided to not walk at all so I ended up carrying him all around town. My arm was killing me by the time I got home. So here are the beauty products I picked up. 

Here's what I got. From The body Shop. Lightening Touch, Warming Mineral mask, All in one BB cream and Rainforest Shine shampoo and conditioner. From Superdrug I picked up Bastiste dry shampoo and two MUA 3 in 1 extreme contour liner in Brown and Gun Metal. 

The body shop have 3 for 2 on all skincare and make up so I got the warming mineral mask for free. I actually only went in for the lightening touch as I suffer form dark circles and I've heard that this is a dupe of the YSL Touche Eclat and at only £14 compared to £25 for the touche eclat I thought I'd give this ago. I got the shade 01. The BB cream is something I haven't really heard of. But it goes on as a white cream and the adapts to your skin tone. I thought for those more natural days this would be perfect. It was £12 which I thought wasn't too bad. I got this in the shade 02. The mask was my freebie. Recently I have has really bumpy skin so I am willing to give anything ago. The shampoo and conditioner was another freebie as I signed up to their Love Your Body reward card. 

Alfie hated Superdrug as I spent ages swatching almost everything. I picked up the Batistes as it was on offer for £1.95. I like this one as it has the hint of colour in and doesn't leave my hair with white streaks. I picked up the MUA extreme contour's to try and use on my eye lids to create a smoky eye. I might just had a play around and see how I can actually make them work best. 

They look just like a pencil and you just twist the top to get the product. They were a bargain price of £1.50. You can't go wrong. 

The top is gun metal and the bottom is brown. They are really creamy so I think they may be good for smudging. I really wanted black but it was sold out so I will be keeping a look out for it on my next trip. 

Also on Monday night I had a little trip to the Metro centre after work. I got 3 little treats for myself. 

For the life of my I couldn't get the brushes to stand up and I realise that this photo is awful, sorry about that. So I got the Real Techniques Stippling brush and blush brush. I  love the stippling brush I have been using it everyday I have to say I really don't like the blush brush. I think it's naff and I feel like I hardly get any product on my cheek. They were on offer for buy one get one half price in boots. 

The MUA pallet I picked up was Undressed as I've heard it's a dupe of Naked. To be honest Undressed is a better way of saying naked if you ask me. Also it was £4 compared for £36 that naked costs. I'm really looking forward to using this as I've had it almost a week and still haven't tried it. 

I am really happy with my purchases minus the blush brush. Here is a picture of Alfie after been carried all over town he still came home and had a nap. Typical man. Have you used any of these products what do you think?
