Advantage Card Points Shopping!

So..I have one more exam tomorrow, and then my degree is over! Scary stuff. Anyway, I realised the other day that I have about £34 on my Boots Advantage Card and I thought I’d treat myself once I’d finished my finals. I’m going to go to the huge flagship store on Oxford Street so I’ll be able to get basically anything they sell!

I can’t decide what to buy – £34 seems to be just over what I’d need to get one expensive thing, or enough one and a half pretty nice things…anywho, here’s my wish list! If anyone has any thoughts or recommendations, please tell me! These are just all the things I want or need from Boots, regardless of price.

Real Techniques Brushes, the Core Collection – £21.99
Vichy Aqualia Thermale Light moisturiser – £16
Clinique Even Better foundation – £22
Lancome Teint Idole – £27
Origins High Potency Night-a-mins Night Cream – £32
YSL Touche Eclat – £25 (might get one of the new cheapie versions of this one though, I’m curious to see how good they are!)
YSL Teint Radiance foundation – £31
Some kind of exciting eye palette, depending on what I see when I’m there.

I wanted to get more expensive things rather than lots of smaller cheaper things because, as my long-suffering friend pointed out (I always drag her around when I’m shopping for makeup!) I’ll probably end up buying the smaller things at some point anyway, and I want this to seem like a treat!

Any thoughts? 😀 yay for the end of university! Terrifying but exciting!

I Kind Of Want Some Lip Tattoos…

…temporary ones, of course!

I can’t deny that I used to be a bit of a goth kid when I was younger, and I still have a special place in my heart for slightly too much black eyeliner and slightly-too-loud metal music. So I definitely wouldn’t mind combining the two on a night out, going the whole way and wearing some of these scary lip tattoos from the brand Violent Lips!

These are amazing.

These last ones might be a bit far even for me, but I love them all the same!

For Halloween or something these are ace! Would any of you dare to go this bright?

Product Alert! Embryolisse BB Cream

White/brown/pink tube of BB cream

I was reading about French skincare brands the other day, and the person who’d written the article was raving about Embryolisse. I’d heard of the brand, but never tried their stuff as the “magic” product is a fairly heavy moisturiser, which I always assumed would be wrong for my skin.

However, I checked out a link that led to (I love that site) where the new Embryolisse BB cream was listed. I didn’t know it was all that new, but as BB creams are my current obsession, I immediately wanted to try it. Unfortunately for me, it’s an extremely dry financial period right now and will remain so until the beginning of April, so I made a mental note and ignored it, trying to persuade myself to forget about it. (It is priced at £24.50, and considering I’m an eBay fanatic, that is painful.)

It was not to be. CocoBeau sent me an email update the very next day telling me all about the amazing new Embryolisse BB Cream and how I need it in my life right now and all that jazz. I am so sold.

Damn it, CocoBeau! I walked away! I actually walked away!

Next pay day, it is so happening.
