A quick trip to town

As I had £15 on my Debenhams Beauty club that was burning a hole in my pocket I popped into town with the intention of picking up one of their Setting Sprays. After yesterday’s post and realising it actually worked out cheaper than the Collection one and being the last day to get the 15% off I thought I’d pick it up. I’d planned to pick up De-Slick Oil control (link here) but the MUA said I’d probably be better with Up all night as she’d only recommend De-Slick for people with very oily skin and I think mine is oily but not completely. I was so disappointed when I got to the counter and she told me they’d run out and probably won’t get them in till after Christmas

I really want to try the Naked Foundation as well. I should have asked her to put it on me as 15% off that takes quite a bit off. Due to my oily/combination skins I try to get a tester of foundations so I can check how they last. Have any of you tried it? Would love to know your thoughts?

I had a back up as there were a few Mac items I’ve got my eye on. I wanted a YSL glossy stain but with my pink hair I didn’t want to get a shade that doesn’t go with it and the one I want is the red. I’ve seen so many gorgeous eye looks using Mac Cranberry. It’s the prettiest berry red shimmer shade and I can’t wait to create some amazing eye looks with it.

It’s also completely unlike anything I own so I couldn’t resist. With the 10% off (which ended yesterday I believe) it came to £10.80. It’s my first Mac eyeshadow so I can’t wait to play around with it.

After watching some of Estee from essiebutton.com videos and seeing how gorgeous Plumful looked on her it went straight on my wishlist. I really love how she does her make up and want most of the lip colours she has.

The colour is a rosey pink better than lip colour shade on me. I was hoping it would be a little darker as it appears in her video but it’s probably better for me it isn’t. It’s unlike any colour I own, goes with my hair and is perfect for everyday. So I can’t ask for much more from a lipstick.

As you can see the lipstick is really mositurising and has a nice natural glossy finish. It is a lustre finish and was £12.60 with discount.  Cranberry is a little redder than it shows here but you can really see the shimmer in it.

I quickly put them on when I got home as I couldn’t wait to try them. I applied Cranberry to my crease and really like the way it looks. Even though it’s reddy I think it’s actually quite easy to wear.

I also picked up this Green Skater Skirt from Miss Selfridge. It’s a jersey material with a black elasticated waist and was only £14.00 I think I will get a lot of wear from this. I wanted more skater skirts as they are easy to wear for day/night and comfy.

I really want this black coated River Island skirt and it’s a bargain £20. I’m gutted it’s sold out online but I’m hoping I can find it in a store.

The leather trend isn’t one I’ve embraced apart from my jackets but I really love the skater skirts and think they’d look great with thick tights and a cosy jumper.

Seen as I was meant to be Christmas shopping I shouldn’t have bought stuff but I just couldn’t resist. Have you embraced the leather trend? Are you loving skater skirts like me?

Love M
