I wasn’t going to do a haul because I didn’t think I bought that much stuff. But looking at my bank balance and the stuff I now have all over my room.. I think I have enough for a substantial haul! Lets just jump straight into things.
I wandered over to the Urban Decay counter at Duty Free and ofcourse I was going to buy at least a couple of things. First thing I knew I wanted was a new Naked Skin concealer, and they only had one in the shade Fair Neutral so it was fate. You know how much I love this product so I don’t need to go on about it more!
Second thing I picked up was the Naked Skin Foundation. I was originally intending to pick up the All Nighter foundation (which I will try at some point) but they didn’t have it at the counter in the airport. I began swatching this one and I must say do not be intimidated by the colour of the foundation in the bottle. I got shade 1.0 and it looks so dark and orange in the bottle, but it swatches to my perfect shade.
The last thing I got from Urban Decay was the Moondust palette. I wasn’t remotely interested in this palette because normally with shimmer shades they don’t come off as a glitter pigment would, but when I saw how cute and compact this one was I had to try it. The shadows are really really good and I love the iridescence the shades have to them. I definitely don’t regret getting this one!
I then popped over to Smashbox where I wanted to see the new liquid lipsticks, but they didn’t have them. Instead I decided to go for the cult classic, the primer. I love the simplicity of the packaging and it’s a really decent size you get.
There wasn’t much in the drugstores in Menorca and I was quite disappointed that there weren’t more lower priced brands. I’ve been on the hunt for a translucent powder for setting my undereye area but I can’t find a cheaper alternative in Boots or Superdrug because there are none in stock! I was so relieved to find this one from Catrice. It’s exactly what I was looking for so I’m glad I got this one.
Continuing on the whole beauty part, I got two perfumes. I’m a loyal customer to my Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb and that will always be my favourite perfume, but I thought it was about time that I found another one to wear.
I wasn’t intending to buy any clothes when I was over in Spain.. but ofcourse that was never going to be the case. I firstly got this lovely jacket from Mango. My favourite colour is yellow and I missed out on those Topshop raincoats so this is my alternative! It’s suede so it’s not waterproof in the slightest which may be a poor choice considering I live in Scotland and it rains a LOT. Nonetheless I’m sure I’ll get my wear out of it as much as I can before the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Secondly we found my new favourite shop, Stradivarius. There I picked up quite a few things. Firstly, I got myself a new pair of sunglasses that I didn’t need in the slightest. I do have quite the sunglass obsession however and it’s not as if they’re designer so it doesn’t break the bank.
I got a bralet to put under the top I showed above, simply because it is incredibly see through. I have a bit of a tummy on me at the moment but hopefully by Christmas season I’ll have more of the figure to wear this.
I think these chokers are my favourite thing I got from Stradivarius, simply because of the top one. I don’t normally reach for chokers because I thought they’d be a fad, but I like this one because it’s different. And the thick black one will look cool for going out.
And that’s all I have to show you guys! I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you in the next one..
