Post Christmas Beauty Haul


So went into town last week to hit the sales, but I actually ended up buying pretty much all full priced items, and not particularly cheap ones either.

I had planned on going wild in the Lush sales as all of the christmas stock was half price but the shelves were completely wiped of anything half decent! So here is what I managed to pick up...


Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in Shade #436 Birthday Suit - I have been after a matte liquid lipstick for so long now! I couldnt get my hands on the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit so I figured this little beauty would be just as good and for a fraction of the price! This Lip Cream retails at just £5 and is such a gorgeous shade, one that almost perfectly mimicks MAC's Velvet Teddy! I'm sure I will get LOTS of use out of this!


Ecotools Tapered Blush Brush - I've been desperate to get hold of a new blush brush lately as I've taken to bronzing and highlighting my face almost daily. I was a bit ill equipped for the job but now I have this I will be able to highlight my forehead, cheek bones and chin more accurately. I chose this Ecotools brush partly because my sister owns a few that she loves and partly because it was a cheaper alternative to the only others in the shop which were the Bold Metallic Collection from Real Techniques.


Lush Snowman Fun - This was literally the only sale item I picked up all day, and the only slightly appealing thing left in Lush. All of their festive stock had been reduced and I had every intention of picking up a few Snow Fairy Shower Gels or the 5 Gold Rings Bubble Bar but alas, they were all gone. I settled for this Snowman soap which I had actually eyed up before Christmas but I couldn't justify £5 on, £2.50 on the other hand was much more appealing! I'll have a little play with it and show my creation off on Instagram in the next week or so!


Makeup Revolution Mono Eyeshadow in Shade Touch Me - I bought one of these way back in around February time and honestly it did the job pretty well. I have quite veiny eyelids and on days I don't really want to make an effort, but still want to look alive I just dust this over them to make myself feel better. It was only £1 so it was well worth investing in.


Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Pallet - Oh my god where do I even start with this?! It has been on my wishlist for weeks now and when Santa didn't deliver I knew I had to get it myself. Everything about this pallet is just perfect, the packaging is incredible and I know I will use all of the shades. It was a little bit pricy, retailing at £40 but that works out to less then £3 a shade so when you think about it that way its kind of a good deal. Regardless of the price its something I was dying to get my hands on and you have to treat yourself once in a while, right?

So thats what I picked up in the 'Sales', I'd love to head what you guys think of my beauty treats! Did you manage to get any post Christmas bargains?!


Thanks for reading!

  1. Matte Me in Birthday Suit is my favourite all time liquid lipstick - the formula is so good! Jealous of the Gwen Stefani palette though! xx

  3. That palette is beautiful! It seems expensive but when you work it out at £3 a shadow - it's a bargain!! Especially if you're going to get lots of use out of it.
