I've been a bad girl

I had a little blip in my spending ban..... my boyfriend's mom gave me some money before I left London (as a farewell present) and I thought I might as well spend it on something a bit more luxurious that I wouldn't normally splurge on. So I bought one of Guerlain's terracotta bronzers. At £32 it was definitely a splurge.

Guerlain Terracotta sheer bronzing powder

How gorgeous is this packaging! It's like a tortoise shell with the interlocking G's inside the outer plastic casing. You can kinda see my hands holding my camera in the reflection hahah.. and my creepy face below it!

This is a sheer bronzing powder. I got it in 03 Dark, which is the darkest one in this series. The main reason I got the dark one is because of the gorgeous coral colour inside! Just wait and see :) I'm pretty sure this dark one is meant for people with much darker skin than me, but I don't care!

The mirror is lovely, really high quality and really clear.

My lighting was crap so here's a better picture I found online:

Still doesn't do it justice... the coral/shocking pink is much brighter in person! You guys have to go see it in person at a Guerlain counter.

At duty free, I got two things from MAC, and I had to hurry because it was closing in 15 minutes! I got the two items that I'd been wanting for a while...

MAC Warm Soul mineralised blush

Again, my lighting was horrible... this isn't what it looks like at all! Hahaha... here's a much better picture I found on google:

Completely different right?? Hahaha.. Anyway, it's a BEAUTIFUL colour! Kinda like a warm rose bronze. Really warms up the face and makes you look super healthy and like you got a nice dose of sun :) Might become my favourite blush!

MAC Club eyeshadow

This is an awesome colour. It's dark brown with a turquoisey green duochrome. Looks so interesting on your eyelids and looks like you put much more effort into the look than you really did! This is great for an easy and unique smoky eye. I'm glad I got this!

So there it is... my naughty little shop that ruined my June spending ban... but hey, the Guerlain bronzer was bought with money given to me, and the MAC stuff was from duty free so they kinda don't count! My mom also got me a Lancome Bi-Facil eye make-up remover but that's only because I ran out of my Boots Botanics one.. and by the way, the Lancome one is the best I've ever used! Way better than Clinique's and the Boots one. I lost my Shiseido eyelash curler on the plane so I'll probably be picking up either the same one or the infamous Shu Uemura one soon. That's all folks! xxx
