Hello ladies! I hope your having a happy hump day! I’m still on annual leave so I’m in my lay about clothes watching The Thick Of It, this is the life! If you’ve never watched it you need to, Malcolm Tucker is my hero. I can only dream of swearing like that.
Not last weekend but the one before the boy and I went on a little city break dahling, to Amsterdam! Him indoors has been before, I hadn’t but it was on the to do list. I managed to find it for a good price on lastminute.com so off we went! We were staying in a really nice 4 star hotel which was a little way out of town a few streets away from the Van Gogh museum but we got tram passes for a few Euro and hammered them, we literally went everywhere! I can’t recommend visiting Amsterdam enough, it’s so beautiful and easy to walk around.
It was my birthday on the day we got there annnnd birthday celebrations along with my having purchased no cosmetics since July…lets be honest I need no excuse for a haul. And haul I did. Like a mother.
Some bits I’ve used a bit and some bits I haven’t touched so this will just be a skim over what I got before I start playing around and get some reviews up.
First up a visit to Sephora. There isn’t one actually in Amsterdam but a few km away. Yes I did drag my poor boyfriend all the way there and he didn’t even moan! WIN!
Make Up For Ever HD Blush in #6, Aqua Cream in #13, Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N36
Sephora Jumbo Liner in 05 Beige, Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in 05 Miami Pink
Then a small trip to the Make Up Store…
High Tech Lighter in Venus, Blush in Must Have and Matte Lipstick in Pretty Baby
I also had a stroke of genius on the tram one day and remembered Inglot! I haven’t been anywhere near one of their stores but I see beautiful stuff from them on blogs. One small google to find a location later aaannnddddd
AMC Lip Paint in #66, Freedom palette (I will put shade names on when I do a proper review these are a total bitch to get out!), Sleeks Cream Lip Paint in 105
Drug store and Yves Rocher…
Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp mascara, Catrice Absolute Eye Colour in I Like To Mauve It and Mr Copper’s Fields, Essence lipstick All About Cupcake and Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen, I also got an Essence cream eyeshadow that isn’t pictured here
Last of all, Douglas and duty free purchases
Lancome Rouge In Love in 340B Rose Boudoir and 322M Corail In Love, Burberry Lip Cover in 28 Devon Sunset and a teensy weensy sample in 04 Rosewood, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss in 57 Insolence
I feel disgusted at myself. Normally I need to hide new purchases away from the boy under the bed or something but he was present for all of these purchases and therefore aware of my horrendous dependence on lipstick and the buying thereof. He still hasn’t mentioned it or taken the piss…keeper!
Have you been to Amsterdam? Or used any of these badboys?! xo
