Today I finished my final-year exams (hooray!), and as I always do whenever at a loose end, I went shopping. My trawl around Westfield Shepherd’s Bush proved successful as the Boots store there FINALLY HAS A NYX COUNTER. After my actual fist pump I had to fight for space at the counter and eventually got my hands on one of their Soft Matte Lip Creams (in the shade 19 Cannes) and a Butter Gloss (in the shade 12 Cherry Pie). Pretty impressed so far with both, but the matte lipstick needs further testing.
I also popped into Kiko – they were sold out of most of the Longwearing Eyeshadow Sticks (which are AMAZING) but I spotted the Extra Sculpt Volume Mascara. All of the Kiko mascaras are currently on sale for £3.90 (!!!) and I’ve heard good things about this one, so fingers crossed it works for my highly uneven eyelashes.
Finally, I was looking for a super fine felt tip liner, and the Maybelline Master Precise seemed suitable. I have incredibly hooded and oily eyelids so hopefully this liner will hold up (if I can draw it evenly). It has a very sharp tip and is intensely black (£5.99 from Superdrug).
Along with some other bits from Lush, that concludes my little haul – though I’m sure it won’t be long before I end up abusing my debit card again…
