L'Oreal BB Cream, Bourjois foundation, No7 BB Cream, the best beauty blog, reviews, Boots shopping haul Happy Saturday!  I’ve had a pretty rough few days from some weird tummy virus and I’ve spent it mostly in my toilet!  (Read all about it here)  Anyway, I thought I’d take it easy this weekend and show you my recent acquisitions.

What I Bought is stuff I selected and chose and paid for myself; whereas What I Got is stuff I didn’t ask for but received as a gift.  You’ll see what I mean when you read on…

What I Bought

I have heard great things about e.l.f. so I ordered a few things online :

e.l.f. Nail Polish in Rosy Raisin, e.l.f. Cream Eyeliner in Gunmetal, e.l.f. Lipstick in Nicely Nude, e.l.f. Natural Radiance Blusher in Bronzed, e.l.f. Professional Fan Brush, e.l.f. Daily Brush Cleanser.

Initial Impressions :  Totally delighted with the great quality at affordable prices.

L'Oreal BB Cream, Bourjois foundation, No7 BB Cream, the best beauty blog, reviews, Boots shopping haul

My sister is over here in Australia on a Working Holiday Visa so I told her to buy me a few items from Boots, a UK drugstore.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 52 Vanilla, L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer, L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream in Fair Skin Tone (reviewed here) and No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream For Dry/Very Dry Skin in Fair.

I also asked my sister to buy me some lip products from Superdrug like Sleek Pout Paints and MUA Love Hearts collection and more MUA lipsticks for my lip beauty blog.  She misread my shopping list and bought me these 3 MUA Lip Glosses.  *sulk*

What I Got

So, my Mum usually has great taste in clothes and bought me lots of Primark clothing the last time she came to visit.  This time was a big DISASTER!  She bought me stuff I would never ever wear including too many pairs of Treggings (Tragic Leggings) and dodgy denim boots.  I’ll show the denim boots on Wednesday for my Wordless Wednesday post.

And YAY!  I got this lovely prize package from Priceline due to their #pricelinelovesbloggers promotion on Twitter.  A number of Tweeps nominated me as their fave blogger and I cannot thank them enough for their love and support.  Thank you lovelies!!  And may I add that bloggers love Priceline!


Selection of goodies from Rimmel London, Kate Moss and Sally Hansen.

And there you go!  What have you bought recently?  And is there anything here that you want me to review ASAP?  Let me know.

    Great haul! I love ELF <3 good package there from Priceline! I see some shinny goodness from SH.

    A blogging friend of mine from the US gave me the ELF Natural Radiance Blush and I LOVED it! Except, its a tad fragile and mine is half broken. All I did was used a little too much strength when "putting it" back into my cosmetic bowl.
