I've not had much money to spend on shopping recently, as I'm still waiting for a start date for my new job and I'm kind of coasting along. However I have found a few little bargains to share with you and also I've found a way of getting US shades of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos!
I'm not sure why, as I'm so lazy with applying it, but I've been on a Barry M Nail Paint hype recently! In the regular formula I picked up Vintage Violet (new for A/W14) and Mushroom. Vintage Violet is a really pretty purple shade, which is also a little muted; perfect for summer! Mushroom is a brown-toned pink, which I've been loving at the moment. In the Gelly formula I chose Olive, as I couldn't find the one I'd been looking for (Almond), which is a really pale green. (£3.99 per polish)
Boots are also giving out a free Showgirl Mascara (worth £5.99), which is new from Barry M, if you spend £7 or more on the line. This was convenient, as I'd forgotten to put mascara on that day and I was feeling pretty self-conscious! I chose the Extra Black Volume, but if I go back for the other nail polishes I'm after I'll get the Extra Lengthening one too.
I finally managed to get my hands on a Rimmel Provocalips in Make Your Move (£6.99), a dusky pink shade. I'm interested to try this gloss-tint duo.
Lastly, a very exciting purchase for me! I picked up the entire Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Colour Tattoo Collection from eBay! It was a UK seller and I paid face value per pot and just £1.50 for p&p. It worked out cheaper to do this (as I wanted 4/6 of them) than to buy the single ones I wanted from the US. I'm such a fan of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo cream eyeshadows but my major criticism is that there just aren't enough shades in the UK. As a neutrals-lover this collection had to be mine! Here is the link to the seller, though they do seem to be running low, so grab them fast! (swatches/review coming soon)
Let me know what you think of my haul in the comments :) do you own any of my picks? Are any of them on your wish list?
