London Haul

London to me is a shopping paradise, but I tried not to go berserk and kept it rational... And here are my humble purchases:

Off course I had to go into Boots, which is everywhere, and bought 2 items from Neutrogena. These are only intended to be used on my nose as that's the place where I get impurities/blackheads. I was lucky, on sale: 2 voor 5£!

I also popped into Lush as we suddenly ran into it -hooray- (my first visit to Lush) and bought the Bubblegum Lip Scrub, it smells divine... The whole store smelled cottoncandy, was getting a headache in there :)

Topshop: as said before I didn't have that much time to try on all I eyed at. I bought these lovely pink ballerinas (I liked them more in grey-silver but they were no longer in my size) and a blazer with beige undertones to it, very classy...

Then onto the make-up! I bought the Sleek Pout Polish in Pink Cadillac (I also wanted the peach one but it was sold out) and the Sleek Storm Palet in Superdrug, along with the Revlon lipgloss in peach. In Selfridges I bought the NARS sheer glow (off course I had to try this, everyone raves about it!!) and the Bobbi Brown Concealer Stick. Last on the list was in Fenwicks and I bought Becca Eye tint in Baroque.

I also tried the Benefit Coralista, as it was on my thingstogetlist, but it didn't suit me at all... :(

Now, these were my actual purchases but I tried much much more and already have my list of -things to buy soon- ready, take a peak, out of the top of my head:

-Becca Illuminator in pearl
-NARS multiple orgasm
-NARS cream blush penny lane
-NARS laguna bronzer
-Kiehls avocado creamy eye
-Aveda Rosemary Shampoo/Conditioner
-Burt's and Bees lip balm

What's your favourite among the things I purchased? Or is there another musthave I forgot, let me know!
