The Yay I've finished my course and Beauty Chamber haul

Hey lovelies,

If you read yesterday's Sunday Round up post, you will have found out that I did do a little bit of spending in my first week of my spending ban.. However the money I was using was a gift of my parents for finishing my teaching assistant course, so I'm going to let it slide just this once. I promise its my only spending (hopefully) during the ban.

So here is what I got....


First up, something that was ordered before my spending ban. It was a Sigma Blending Brush (E25) from the Beauty Chamber. It has been said to be a dupe of the MAC 217 brush. I'm super excited to try it out and report back to you all.

So  I made a trip to Superdrug and to Selfridges/MAC. I think I'll start with Superdrug. I popped in because I am currently in the process of a beauty swap with another lovely blogger. Our budget is £10 so I thought I'd pop in and get some good things in there. Obviously I'm not showing you what I've bought for her but the oddments I got for my self as you can see was four things. 

I picked up two MUA products, the Undress Your Skin Foundation in "Porcelain" and the Pro Base Eye Primer. I'm currently going through a foundation discovery period, I don't whether its down to the fact that I am indecisive or just like having options but I have been using a range of foundations for different days to see which one I like the best..I'd heard good things about this one so I picked it up. The Eye Primer was picked up because I've never used an actual eye primer, only my MAC Paint Pot, so I thought it was about time I tried out one.

Also from Superdrug I picked up two hype up products, the L'Oreal Confetti Top Coat and a Sleek Blush in the colour "Pomegranate". I've tried a Sleek Brush before so I'm interested to try this shade.

Now to Selfridges, I was into any way because it was time for another Lancome Masterclass/Event. I turned up in Birmingham later than the others so I did a little bit of shopping, whilst they were eating their food, the rest of the shopping I'll show you last but after the masterclass, I bought a bottle of Lancome's Bi-Facil Eye Make Up Remover. I'd just ran out of my Boots Own Brand bottle and I have fallen out with the Simple Eye Make Up Remover as it had begun to sting my eyes after using. I shall give you a review once I've got used to it.

Now onto the really exciting items. I had to visit both the MAC Store on Cannon Street and also Selfridges but I picked up the two LE MAC Lipsticks that I wanted. I bought Lavender Whip (from  the Baking Beauties Collection) and Heroine (from Fashion Sets). Spot the Pattern.

MAC Lavender Whip, MAC Heroine

Yep, I'm going through a purple phase in my life. I showed these two beauties to the lovely blogger ladies at the Lancome event and I think I made a few of them jealous haha. They are both lovely shades that I can't wait to play about with.

This should be my only hiccup in my spending ban (although this was a treat from the parents). But what a lovely hiccup eh?

Till Next Time,
Clare xxx
