The best kind of shopping is... shopping! I'm sure you'll all agree :)

I had some John Lewis vouchers to spend so I got myself the following goodies:

  • YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Shade 9 Goyave Sorbet
  • Origins GinZing Eye Cream
  • Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

I'd been after the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair for a while but it's rather expensive so I was glad to get some vouchers! Plus since seeing it in one of Anna's hauls I had to have it!

I've also been on the market for a new eye cream after buying Clinique All About Eyes Rich several times in a row. I originally wanted to buy Origins Eye Doctor but then I swatched a bit of GinZing on my hand and I really liked the illuminating effect. I have really bad dark circles so I'm hoping this will give my concealer a helping hand at covering them!

I'm a sucker for gorgeous packing and have been lusting after a YSL lipstick for a while. I think this one is from their Spring 2012 collection and I love the colour! I haven't actually tried it on my lips yet. In fact I haven't even twisted the lipstick up out of the tube, it's too pretty to touch! I'll probably give it a go tomorrow, for now I'll just admire it! Hehe.

I still have £25 of John Lewis vouchers to spend so I'm having a think about what else I could get. If you have any suggestions let me know :)

I remembered I had just over £20 of points on my Boots Advantage card to spend so I thought I may as well get more "free" stuff. 

This is what I chose:

It is the Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit. This set contains 32 eyeshadows, 16 lipglosses and 8 cheek powders. It was £20 which is amazing value I think. I already own the Pixi Wakeup Set which is really nice but I haven't used it much lately. Even though I haven't used the new one yet I know I'll like this one even better. I'm especially looking forward to trying some of the blushers.

    1. Aww thanks for your comment. Yeah I'll definately do posts on those in the near future. Thanks for the suggestions :) Yeah the eyeshadows and blushers are lovely and silky with great pigmentation. I haven't swatched the lipglosses yet but I'm sure they are nice too. x
