So do you remember that self imposed spending ban on all things cosmetic I put on myself? Well I kind of broke that a bit this weekend. Whoops, although I can explain.
You see I went out on Friday after work to do a quick bit of Christmas shopping. I knew exactly what I was looking for but thought I would scan the shops for little stocking filler gifts. As well as that I was pricing aftershaves so popped into boots, ignored the make up completely and then headed to Superdrug to see if they did the same aftershave any cheaper. So you see I was there for research purchases honest! As I walked in to SD I quickly passed all the make up stands as I simply don’t trust myself. Then came to an abrupt stop and back tracked. They had a Sleek stand. Now as far as I was aware only one SD store in my city stocked Sleek. I knew that they were going into more stores but none on their list were near me. Hence the surprise. Not a such a big deal really as the two stores are in easy walking distance from one another. The big deal was that sitting on their shelves were the two eye shadow palettes I had wanted and couldn’t get my mitts on at the first store. Try as I might every time I had gone in there they were sold out. Not only that but there is a 3 for 2 offer across all cosmetics in SD at the moment. The ban was lifted and here is what I purchased.
Acid and Sunset eyeshadow palettes and Flamingo blush. Lovely. I’m adoring them big style and all for just under a tenner. Surely Santa would understand? I seem to keep reaching for my sleek palettes at the moment so the chance to try more colours was too much. I'm weak for make up.
I do what to start trying out other products and brands too, I feel I’ve been a bit Sleek, Sleek, Sleek recently (although the brands I want are on the pricey side of things therefore waiting until after Crimbo). I have done a couple of EOTDs with these over the weekend which I will post later on. I seriously can not buy any more cosmetics until after Christmas! Naughty me.
So guys have you had a good weekend?
What was the last product you treated yourself to?
