After all of the shopping since finishing my Project 10 Pan in April I admit that at the moment I'm feeling a bit jaded and just damn well shopped out! A good indication is all the online stalking I've been doing lately but not adding anything to cart. Apart from one lipstick I've got my eye on (YSL's Forbidden Burgundy) as reward for completing my lipstick ban, I feel like taking it easy with the beauty accumulation for a little while again - until I get that sudden urge for that special something. There's nothing worse and more wasteful than joyless consumption. Alright, enough of my philosophizing and guilt, here's a rundown of what I bought...
Essie polish minis
At $5AUD each these were too good a deal to pass up...
The Resort Collection - Aka the Fair Game Collection released in 2011. Shades are Fair Game (blue/grey shimmer), Your Hut or Mine (coral pink shimmer), Lion Around (candy pink shimmer) and, haha seriously, Da Bush (green/grey creme).
Brazilliant Summer Collection - Also released in 2011. I bought this just for Brazilliant itself which is a hot orange with a subtle shimmer. Also in the cube are Smooth Sailing (icy periwinkle blue), Super Bossa Nova (fuschia shimmer) and Meet Me at Sunset (hot orange creme).
Crabtree & Evelyn
I bought the Crabtree & Evelyn hand care products in two separate trips to the store - both times during a 40% off deal. I usually stop by there for gifts but ended up gifting myself this time.
Pomegranate Deep Cleansing Hand Wash - One of my little indulgences is using something a little more luxurious than a drugstore hand wash in my bathroom. I'd seen this in my first trip to Crabtree & Evelyn but didn't buy it, then kicked myself, then went back for it!
Pomegranate Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy - Pardon the pun in advance but I bought this hand cream not only because it's soothing and smells lovely but because it goes "hand in hand" with the pomegranate hand wash, hehe!
Lavender Age Defying Hand Remedy - This was the original buy. A no brainer for me because it promises "younger-looking hands".
Real Techniques makeup brushes
These brushes weren't on sale but I bought them out of curiousity (aka under the influence of beauty bloggers!) and because they are so ridiculously soft. I'm no makeup brush guru but I'll let you know how I go with these...
SJP Lovely & Lanolips
Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker - I'm not a fan of celebrity fragrances generally but this fragrance is the exception and it was on sale! It's soft and powdery and reminds me of spring so I'm getting in early.
Lanolips Lip Ointment (Rose) - A spontaneous buy just because I love the natural pink colour of this rich balm.
That is all.
