Hello my lovelies,
So Black Friday I’m never normally taken by, I normally finish my Christmas shopping by this point and Black Friday is normally where I’m sucked into buying something for someone else. However, not this year mainly what I brought was for me – whoops! I went a little mad but I’m so excited to try everything I have brought. I have decided these are my Christmas gifts to myself – that’s totally ok right?
We will start here because this is what sucked me in to the Black Friday deals. Seriously the queue to get on the website was insane, please don’t tell me I was the only one that waited over 12 hours to get on the site!? I just wanted to get my hands on some Morphe Products really and that is exactly what I did!
Morphe – 9BZ Palette see here
I was on the hunt for a new contouring/bronzing powder and when I saw this I was like yes this is perfect. As soon as I opened it I fell in love with the colours. I haven’t heard much about this palette if I’m honest but for the price I paid I’m happy to give it a go, I shall report back!
Morphe – 35F Palette see here
I have wanted this palette for AGES, I’m not even joking it has been on countless wishlists that I have posted and whenever I try and buy it, it’s always out of stock! When I saw that it was in stock AND on sale I literally screamed with excitement. I cannot wait to get using this, the colours all look so pretty. I have high hopes with this palette as everyone and their blooming cat seems to own Morphe eye shadows it’s now finally my turn to enjoy.
Mario Badescu – Acne Facial Cleanser see here
So I have heard about this brand but for whatever reason never purchased anything. Although I don’t suffer with really bad acne, I can get break outs and I love to reach for products that are going to combat them and get rid of them as soon as possible. Let’s see what this does – I shall of course be reviewing this so keep your eyes peeled!
So again, another brand I have never tried before. The reason is pretty simple for this one though is that it is a bit of a bugger to get hold of in the UK. When they had 25% off and free shipping to the UK I was well a truly sold and I knew it was time to buy a few things.
Tarte – Lights Camera Lashes Mascara see here
This mascara I have wanted for a long time, I could never justify the price or just buying this with the shipping I just admired from afar. Of course this was the first thing I put in my basket and as their was limited edition packaging I was like YES PLEASE! Urgh it looks so beautiful. I have high hopes for this little baby so lets hope it doesn’t disappoint.
Tarte – Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette see here
This palette is blooming beautiful, inside & out. Seriously do I need to explain any more? The colours are pretty and I new I wanted to try out a palette from Tarte and this one stole my heart. I have high hopes for this little baby, lets hope it doesn’t let me down.
Okay, so this isn’t a Black Friday shopping trip I actually have just come back from Berlin and before I went I tried to see if their was a Sephora there, unfortunately the website said no and I was a little sad. While we were out there we went into a department store and what did I see – a great big Sephora counter. Yes I screamed, yes I have no shame.
Sephora – Supreme Cleansing Oil see here
I actually brought this on my last trip to Sephora in Paris and I fell completely in love see here so much so I have been using is sparingly because I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to repurchase anytime soon. Well, of course I brought a new bottle and now I can use it again. This stuff is amazing, if you are ever in Sephora go pick it up it’s amazing trust me.
Sephora – Green Tea Face Mask see here
Another favourite from my last haul that I knew I wanted to pick up again. This is perfect for troubled oily skin I really feel as though this does make a difference I will be using this as soon as possible, my skin needs a little treat and this is the perfect mask!
Huda Beauty – Dessert Dusk Palette see here
Yep, I brought it. I saw it in person & it was love at first sight. The pictures online really do not do this eyeshadow palette justice. I mean they are absolutely incredible and when I swatched them I just knew I couldn’t walk away. I reeeaaally hope that the pigmentation will be amazing on my eyes because boy I’m going to look good.
Ok, so actually I didn’t buy this and nor was it brought on Black Friday BUT I just wanted to share this little baby because I’m so flipping excited. So my boyfriend didn’t come to Berlin with me and unfortunately I got an awful head cold while I was out there. When we flew back he stayed awake and presented me with a little bag of goodies.
First was some throat sweets – practical. Apple Juice – it was divine. Garnier Micellar Water – my favourite skincare product EVER. Simple Face Wipes – handy AND a Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips in Show Girl see here I was over the blooming moon & so grateful to receive such a lovely thoughtful gift. It made me even more happier that he had clearly been reading my blog as I mentioned this on my Christmas Wishlist here – top boyfriend points. I’m so excited to try this out, yes I have an addiction to liquid lipstick – I have no shame!
That’s all folks, I think I will now put myself on a spending ban! Let me know if you have tried any of these products before & what your thoughts are on them.
