I really wanted to do the 100 day spending ban, I swear. HOWEVER with me having worked so hard over Christmas, and now not having a job, I thought I'd treat myself to a few goodies before I couldn't afford them.
MUA had a great deal on their website where you got the MUA artiste palette free when you spent £5 or more (I think that was the deal). So I decided to treat myself to a few goodies. I picked up the individual eyeshadows in Shade 25 pearl (apparently a dupe for Mac's Cranberry??), Shade 16 matt, Shade 11 pearl and Shade 30 pearl. I absolutely love their singles, as they are just super pigmented for £1! Then I picked up a lipstick in Shade 14 Bare as I was desperate for a nudey lipstick. Then I also picked up a couple of their eye pencils in Starry Night (a black liner with glitter) and Pink Sparkle (a pinky colour).
I ordered a Burt's Bees mango nourishing lip balm as I'd heard so much about them and I really wanted to try a stick lip balm rather than using my Vaseline all the time as my lips were becoming immune to it!
I picked a couple of bits up at Superdrug, I got a Sleek blush in Rose Gold. It is the most amazing colour! Apparently a dupe for NARS Orgasm but I've never seen it first hand so can't really comment! But it is the most gorgeous colour and I got it on the lovely Gemma from Button's Blog recommendation! I also got a new Barry M topcoat and one of their Gelly polishes in Prickly Pear (see my review of their Gelly polishes here ). I got this limited edition Gold Glitter polish free as I spent over £6 so was chuffed!! I love me a freebie!
Last but not least, I popped to YSL and asked for a sample of their Shocking mascara as I am desperate to try it. I'll give a good review once I've gave it a good try out!!
Unfortunately, as I haven't managed to get a new job just yet (redundancy sucks), I think an involuntary spending ban will be coming soon. So I thought I'd treat myself while I could!!
