You cannot go to London and not come home with something new especially if you are a beauty/makeup obsessed freak like me. I recently went on a little trip to London with my boyfriend (post) and during my time there I done a bit of shopping. London is great for getting your hands on everything at once and coming across all those brands you could only ever get your hands on online, yep talking about you Zoeva. I treated myself to quite a few bits from London and can tell you I already love everything I have tried so far!
Selfridges is the best for getting everything in one go as their is so many departments and beauty brands in this one shop. I so wish we had a Selfridges up here in Newcastle but then again my wages would just get blown on beauty products all the time and I'd be eating lipsticks for breakfast. I did however pop in when I was down London and picked up a few bits I have wanted to try for ages. I picked up a Beauty Blender after hearing so many amazing comments on it, I am going to be writing a blog post soon comparing it with Real Techniques Sponge. I also picked up the Zoeva Buffing Brush since I absolutely love buffing brushes for foundation. I was so close to buying the full rose gold set but I subtly dropped hints to my boyfriend for my birthday.
H&M is also amazing down London and the H&M I went into which is just on the corner between Oxford and Regents Street has 6 floors! The beauty range is to die for though and again I really wish my local had stocked beauty. Since I loved the eyeshadows from my H&M haul I picked up a single eyeshadow in this gorgeous brown/nude which looks perfect with a bronze makeup look. A also picked up a hand cream and body spray which smell amazing! And a mini dry shampoo which was just because I forgot my own but turns out I have been using this for volume too. After H&M I finally bought the Pixi Glow Tonic this has been on my wishlist for so so long now so I am happy I have finally got my hands on it and it is amazing so far!
Another product that has been on my wishlist for so long is Kiehls Midnight Recovery Oil and finally I got my hands on it. I have been applying this before bed every other day and holy moly my skin is incredible when I wake up. I will be writing a review on this very soon! The last couple of bits I picked up were just from my local Boots but I am including them in here anyways and I just picked up another Maybelline Fit me Concealer as it is the best for covering those dark circles. I also noticed Natural Collection stock Highlighting Sticks so I picked one of those up in the hope it'll be a budget friendly highlighter.
I will more than likely be reviewing most of these in the future so keep your eyes pealed!
