I had some baby free time today… sort of, Ava fell asleep in the car so my dad stayed with her whilst I skipped gleefully towards to shops alone. I’ve got a meal out with some playgroup moms tomorrow and andy’s work Christmas party Saturday so I wanted to pick up some new make up items and a couple of pamper bits in preparation for the big night, as a stay at home mom I don’t get a works party so I’m taking andy’s one very seriously!
First up – make up
Barry M satin superslick lip paint £4.99
I bought shade berry liscious, this was a total impulse purchase! I basically bought the shade that the model on the point of sale was wearing, it’s a plum colour which she was wearing with a red lip liner (3) which I also bought, this colour will go perfectly with my outfit tomorrow.
Collection lasting perfection concealer £3.99
This is a regular purchase of mine, it completely blows some of its pricier opponents out the water and certainly helps cover the ‘mumbags’ that have taken permanent residence on my face.
Rimmel stay matte pressed power £3.99
I recently saw this on a list of beauty must haves, this is the first powder I’ve ever bought and I’m not totally convinced I need it, however I decided to give it a go for the Christmas party as I thought it might help combat that one too many wines ‘glow’
Barry M molten metals nail paint £3.99
This is actually sort of what I went in for, I wanted a gold nail varnish and this one is perfect, the shade is actually bronze bae but it goes on a little more gold than bronze I’d say, I’m planning on pairing it with a dark metallic red nail varnish, proper festive nails!
Garnier moisture bomb gel-cream on offer for £5.33
I’ve tried the moisture bomb sheet masks and really like it so when I saw this on Katie’s sanctuary blog, read her review here I decided to give it a go. I don’t take as much care of my skin as I should and it can get a bit dull and old so I’m hoping this will inject some much needed life back into it ( laying off the junk food might help too!) I will do a follow up post once I’ve trialled it out.
Boots ingredients sheet mask on offer for £2
I love a face mask! Nothing says pamper quite like a face mask does it? Sheet masks are fairly new to me and so far I’ve only tried the garnier moisture bomb, other than the fact they look like something from a horror movie and my husband laughs at me, I really like them, there’s no mess and they actually feel like they are doing something. I went for Charcoal and Willow bark cleansing and purifying mask, my skin is prone to break outs so I thought the purifying one would be best for me. I’ve used it tonight and my skin feels really soft, I’ll definitely be repurchasing in the future.
Sanctuary spa salt scrub £1.75 a sachet
Why I don’t own the large jar of this I don’t know! (Please Santa) This stuff is amazing, my skin feels ridiculously soft after using this. You can put it on and shower off or relax in the bath and let it melt into the bath and out you come with silky smooth skin, it also smells amazing to so win win!
Hopefully after a bit of pampering I shall be Christmas party ready! Bring on the proscecco!
