Went to boots today to sample a few new make up products Ive not tried before but found so many of them are out of stock on the fair/pale coloured ones! must be lots of pale girls around my area

I ended up with:

1) Natural collection Lash build mascara - I know its mega cheap but I actually quite like it!
2) 2 x pots of natural collection face powder - again mega cheap but I find it works just as well as the more expensive brands and it was 3 products for a fiver

3) Glow all out luminizing radience face powder from Soap and Glory - never tried this before but it looks quite nice, a slight shimmer to give you a bit of a glow, S&G make up on 3 for 2 at the moment so thought I would give this a go as I wanted the next 2 products!

4) Show good face foundation and primer from Soap and Glory - Trying out the fairest of them all shade as Ive read so many good reviews on this

5) Kick ass concealer from Soap and Glory - I'm struggling to find a really good concealer for my horrible under eye circles and I'm hoping this is as good as what people are saying it is!

How's that working out for you? I picked it up in Boots today but didn't buy it.
I'm still undecided. I have very long hair which can get frizzy at the ends and the oil definitely makes the ends feel smoother but I don't feel it controls frizz as well as I'd like.

Thanks, It would be frizz control I'd want as nothing I've ever used has 100% got rid of frizz - don't even mention Frizz-Ease, my hair was in horrific condition when I used that!

The search goes on!

I just bought Superdrug Vitamin E Body Moisturiser which is absolutely darn fantastic. Having being diagnosed with Crohens Disease last month I am constantly dehydrated and even just drinking water my skin still was not good. So did a bit of surfing and found good things about this and the body scrub. Just love it.

Also to chear myself up bought two nail polishes from Marks and Spencer, tried the darker one not that impressed, 48hrs on and it started to wear at the edges. Also a fuschia colour which does look lovely, but puttin it on is not good, no matter how hard I try it seems to streak, very annoying

Try the Body Butter in the same range as well.
For years I've used L'Occitane Hand Cream (£18.50 for 150ml), but now that they have lost their BUAV status I have been on the look out for a decent alternative.
Well, to cut a long story short, I've found it. I know it's advertised as a Body Butter, but it's also a great hand cream. Okay, it's probably isn't quite as moisturising as the L'Occitane one, but for £2.99 for 200ml, I'll learn to live with it.

Yes they're lovely, makes the hair look really elegant in a bun. Being ultra cautious though, I cover mine in silk as the doughnut material can be quite rough.

I did wonder if the material would damage the hair in some way. That's such a great tip though, thankyou

To be honest L&L I think there is probably very little damage that can be done with them. I did lose a few hairs but nothing major. I just don't like the thought of the hair rubbing against that rough material all day.

Eau de Lacoste.

I've never tried a Lacoste perfume before but received a free sample and loved it so splashed out. I like light floral fragrances for everyday and this one is really nice.

Today I went to Boots to buy some MaxFactor foundation. At the counter, the girl told me it was 3 for 2! I spend a fortune on that stuff so was very happy with the offer.

I also ended up buying hair dye, nail polish and tweezers which I didn't intend to buy.

In the last week I've been a bit naughty: Aussie shampoo travel sizers because I forgot to take my shampoo home, and Benefit face powder. The powder is lush, and lasts forever, I just really can't afford it atm!

Cherry Carmex lip balm
no7 Lip liner in plum
no7 lipstick in Coral Rose
got the free no7 gift too because I brought two products. I like the stuff. Usually in free gifts like that they give you the crap unwearable colours but these are lovely.
MUA lip liner red drama
MUA Lipstick shade 2
Look lip liner in Tangerine Cream
2 soap and glory "mist you madly" one is for my Mum though.

EDIT: For anyone looking for a really good concealer try the MUA Conceal and brighten kit. £3.50 from superdrug. I brought it a few weeks back and it's the best £3.50 I have ever spent.

Today I brought two Natural Collection products.
Lipstick in rose bud
Nail Varnish in black cherry.

Also ordered some stuff from elf. I've never used them before so didn't order too much. Just a lipstick, lipliner and two nail polishes.
