Beauty Haul & Sale Picks // Space NK & The Body Shop.
Monday, 11 January 2016
2016 is the year of saving so of course I had to buy a few treats in the sales first, and, a couple of items I have been after for the longest time ever.
I started my haul online at Space NK by finally picking up the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Dimlight - a powder that must have been in and out of my online shopping bag at last fifty times, and I'm not even exaggerating. Having had the product for nearly two weeks now I completely understand why everyone loves it so much, the finish is absolutely stunning. I love that it is slightly tinted yellow too as I suffer from redness.
I also picked up the Laura Mercier Original Foundation Primer; another product I've been meaning to buy for ages. I've tried this previously, and fell in love with it so I am really looking forward to bringing this back in to my makeup routine.
The last two buys were both sale buys, and from brands I have wanted to try for a long time but haven't been able to justify the price. The first is a Diptyque gift set containing two of their smaller sized candles. I cannot wait to give these a go, and cannot believe they both only cost me a total of £19. The other item I picked up was the Aromatherapy Associates Tree gift, containing a mini Revive Morning Bath and Shower Oil - a little luxury product I have always wanted to try.
Following my online shopping, I then went shopping in West Quay and got hold of a few sale bargains.
I started by entering the Yankee Candle Shop, and picked up two Sparkling Cinnamon tarts. I love how warming this fragrance is, I just wish they hadn't sold out of the jar candles of this scent before I got to town.
Next, and lastly I of course had to visit The Body Shop. The Body Shop always have an awesome sale and this Christmas was no different.
I picked up two shower gels in the scents Smoky Poppy and limited edition scent Frosted Plum. I also picked up the matching Frosted Plum lip balm. Smoky Poppy has quite a perfume style fragrant scent to it and Frosted Plum a much sweeter scent.
I also couldn't resist picking up the Indian Night Jasmine EDT seeing as I had run out of my old bottle. I love the newer packaging but seeing as this was at least half the price I am sure I will survive.
Lastly, I picked up one of their limited edition Colour Crush lipsticks in the shade 110 Coral Blush, a shade I have completely fallen for. It is the same formula I love in a gorgeous coral pink shade, and has been my go-to since purchasing.
And amazingly that is everything I purchased - I don't think I went to overboard, what do you think? What bargains have you picked up in the sale?
