YSL & Smashbox Haul

Saturday, 5 July 2014

Today me and my sister decided to head into town for a girly day together, which basically means going to every make up counter, swatching a billion things and ending up in Starbucks.

We headed into Debenhams to have a look around, and I really wanted to have a look at the YSL sale as I'd seen a few bits online. The lovely assistant -and when I say lovely she was literally the nicest lady ever!-showed me some items and applied them to my face. The eye make up was incredible, the whole look was incredible, she really done great. I ended up walking away with a few products as I couldn't resist, especially as YSL is my favourite luxury brand. Topaz (hello if you found my blog and are reading this! you really helped my confidence, I walked out the store literally feeling a billion times better, thank you!)

I picked up the YSL Pure Chromatics in 11 quad that can be
used wet or dry. This was in the sale for only £21, I couldn’t say no! I also
got the YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush in 8 which when applied looked so glowing
and added a lovely hint of colour to my lips and cheeks; I can already tell I’m
going to be addicted to these things! After having the YSL Babydoll Mascara applied to my lashes I also decided to pick that up, it made my lashes look super long and added lots of volume. Those
were both full price items but I loved how they looked on so I treated myself.

I also got given a sample of the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation to try out. I'm hoping this works for my skin as I've heard some great things about this.

On the way back we had a quick look in Boots and saw that Smashbox had a small sale- these sales are killing my bank balance! I saw this beautiful Fade to Black Palette in Fade Out which contains some lovely neutrals and purples which are my favourite colours to wear, and it was reduced to £16. My sister also picked up a palette and if you purchased 2 things you got a lucky dip to win a little package of goodies. I got the Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Ruby and a few hair treatment samples in my gift, I thought that was a really nice little bonus.

That's everything I picked up today, I will be putting up individual reviews and swatches next week..thanks for reading and hope you're having a lovely weekend.
