A little high-street shopping trip!

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 22 - 2012

I don’t do many ‘haul’ posts, I don’t think they’re quite as popular in the blogosphere as they used to be?  Taken over by beauty box posts perhaps?

Anyway, I’ve been having a bit of a high-street love-in this past week and in the town where I’m currently staying, I’m limited to a Boots and a Superdrug – the Superdrug is a good ‘un, the Boots store massively blows but I did spot a good discounted section at the back that I didn’t have a chance to check out.  My LUSH purchases came from my local store in Southampton just before I drove up North. Um, that’s about it really – here’s what’s prompted me to open my purse this week!

When you’ve got a full fringe, dry shampoo is your friend and I thought I’d give Batiste Cherry a spin, I usually go for the original, dark, or tropical but I think this one is my new favourite.  I’m a massive fan of Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and surprised myself when I realised that I hadn’t given the Healthy Mix Serum version a go – again, this is a big hit with me (so far).  I think it suits my dryer skin even better and gives a slightly more translucent coverage.  The only gloss that I’ve ever repurchased is BarryM’s Lip Gloss in Toffee, it’s a wonderful colour with a pretty amount of shimmer and a non-sticky texture, I love it!

As for my LUSH dabble, I picked up another holy grail in the form of Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, it’s the one I keep in my handbag and I generally alternate between this and CND’s Solar Oil which I use immediately after painting my nails.  I was sent a bottle of LUSH 9 to 5 Cleansing Lotion a few weeks ago and whilst I’ve been enjoying using it, it hasn’t set my world alight you know?  I’m not really expecting LUSH Ultrabland to either, but I wanted to try another cleanser to discover the differences and to see which one I lean towards in terms of formula, as they’re both quite different.  Finally, I picked up a bath bomb for Leila – yes, it’s Space Girl.  Yes, it contains copious amounts of glitter.  No, I didn’t have a say in the selection and yes, I will be the one left cleaning the bath.

What was the last beauty product you snapped up?

    I love the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum too – absolutely wonderful product and I can’t even find it here 🙁 The last beauty product I picked up was the Dior Orange Pareo gloss 🙂

  2. victoria says:

    I love Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum too. I’ve repurchased Ultrabland probably over 10 times and wouldn’t be without it 🙂

    I’ve been loving Healthy Mix Serum this winter and spring, though I’m afraid I won’t be able to use it so much now that it’s getting hotter. My last beauty purchase was, if I remember correctly, a Catrice LE eyeshadow palette.

    No judging here! My 2-1/2 aged son loves the LUSH robot bath bomb.

    I have much love for Bazza M. Their new waterproof liners are great. I’ve been meaning to pick up the cherry dry shampoo too. xoxo

    Love the photo of the pretty cherry shampoo!

    My last purchase was the full set of China Glaze Prismatics, had to have them!

  8. Hollie says:

    I definitely need to try Lemony Flutter! The last thing I bought was a Coconut Body Lotion and Body Butter from the Body Shop xx

    I had so many hauls but because of exams had no time to post them 🙁
    I love Healthy Mix Serum foundation, I think Bourjois are one of the best high street brands.

  10. The cherry batiste is fabulous. I’ve just returned to a full size of the ‘fresh’ Batiste because I’d previously been using the coconutty one and it was starting to turn me.
    Also a big fan of the Healthy Mix Serum foundation. So good!

    I do like the Healthy Mix serum but I have to be crazy careful not to make myself look orange :S It’s not tooooo bad if I top it with some mineral foundation though. Wish they had some paler shades and I’d use it a lot more! xxx

    I’ve used both the 9 to 5 and Ultrabland cleansers (liiittle bit of a LUSH addict…) and I have to say that, for me, they’re both great, but do completely different things. 9 to 5 is my HG make up remover, but I didn’t love it as an overall cleanser, whereas Ultrabland is AMAZING for a deep cleanse if you use it like a Liz Earle cleanser and polish it off with a hot, damp muslin, but it didn’t do anything to remove my eye make up!
