Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 12 - 2013

    What an amazing giveaway! I love Zalando even though it can be a bit overwhelming choice-wise.

    I stopped myself buying these DM Triumphs in purple, because even though they made me feel like a cartoon character/manga superhero I couldn’t justify the spend with a baby on the way. So winning this would be amazing!

  2. Catriona says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was Emma Hardie cleansing balm as I just finished it (and it’s the most amazing cleanser) but can’t justify the expense right now, especially when I have 2 more cleansers sitting in my drawer!

    I don’t know why I never think to look at Zalando! I need some basic black heels so I’m off to have a nosey now…(and totally ignore the fact my final exams are tomorrow!)

  3. Rachel says:

    I really fancied the Illamasqua Imperfection nail polishes that make your nails look like mini eggs, but I’m resisting in the hope that someone buys me one for my birthday!

  4. Sophie says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying was shower gel. Thanks to a beauty box addiction I have about a billion sample sizes so am resolved to use these up before buying any more!

  5. Alexandra says:

    2 Pleated skirts. I’d ordered them, then looked back and realized they we’re 30cm long – despite being a short arse, they may have been a tad inappropriate.

  6. Jemma says:

    Great giveaway!
    The last thing I stopped myself buying was actually a 50p diary. Probably should’ve bought it and stopped being such a cheap skate!

  7. sweety says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying was Chanel’s Mademoiselle perfume. The bottle I had was a gift and it is the most beautiful scent I have ever owned. I almost bought it, but the expensive price tag made me change my mind :-(

  8. kirsty says:

    Last think I stopped myself from buying was some nail polish from the pound shop haha! They were cheap but I already have so many that the bottles are kinda flowing out of the drawer I keep them in!

  9. Louise says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying was a scarf. I love scarves but I’m on a spending ban for the rest of the month :(

  10. Emma says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was a blouse from Primark! I was holding a dress and the blouse and decided I was limited to one purchase, so the dress was chosen :) Thanks for the giveaway! xx

  11. Viktoria says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying was a Philips Air Floss! I’m getting braces (again…) in two weeks and I’m a bit addicted to researching the best way to look after them. I convinced myself that the same old floss I always use will be fine, considering the braces are costing me…well, all of my money!

  12. Michelle says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was the UD OZ Glinda Palette – so pretty but I’m saving for a mortgage deposit so on a shopping ban until our deposit goal is reached and a house has been signed over! I miss shopping – especially beauty shopping x

  13. Ali Thorpe says:

    Hmm, there are probably more things I have stopped myself buying than I am aware of but one springs to mind. It was a soft tailored blazer in a beautifully patterned navy and white fabric. I could see myself in it with a white vest, capris and sunglasses in summertime; one of those items that makes the dreariest casual outfit look sophisticated.

    It was a little more than I wanted to spend so I told myself ‘No!” … but I am keeping my eye on it, just in case!

  14. zoe says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was the new dior spring eyeshadow palette. Its gorgeous but a little pricey and I already own so many shadows x

  15. Another new Zara shopper! Holly xx

  16. Hankie says:

    I’ve stopped myself buying a pair of gorgeous MBTs, they’re Mahuta in aqua. I want them SO badly :(

    Love you blog, this is a great giveaway!!! ^_^

  17. Jasmine says:

    Strawberry cheesecake Haagen Dazs …half price at my local off licence! Tossed and turned last night thinking about it LOL!

  18. Di says:

    A black & white handbag in Zara. Loved it, but knew it would never be big enough for all my paraphernalia!

  19. Jen says:

    UD smoke palette. I love UD eyeshadows so much. I’m on a mission not to buy anymore eyeshadow as I already have 6 UD palettes.

  20. Kittymakesup says:

    Oh what a cool give-away the last thing I stoped myself buying was a jacket in Zara I have too many coats! x

  21. Clare says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying was L’Elegante from the Chanel spring collection… So hard to resist… But I have enough pink lipsticks. For now 😉

  22. Kathryn Brindley says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was Nars Gina. I already have 15 blushes so its not really a necessity right now. Not sure how much longer I can hold out though I am dying for a glowy peach shade for the spring/summer. X

  23. Gemma Raby says:

    I almost bought a lanolips balm in rhubarb. It’s looked so lovely, only £8 from boots, so advantage points too…..that’s like printing your own free money! No? I stopped myself though after realising my extensive lip balm collection totals 23 items. All different. I’m both proud and ashamed.

  24. Stingray says:

    I stopped myself from buying a summer dress in the zara kids section! And only because it’s too early still. Is it just me, or has the gils’ section got nicer things in there than the ladies’?

  25. K Glen says:

    What a great giveaway, the last thing I stopped myself from buying was a Easter egg when they were in the shops just after Christmas.

  26. Sarah says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was Lauren Conrad’s Beauty Book, because although I really really realllllly want it I’m like gonna read it once and never again :( I’m gonna get a new maybelline eye tattoo instead maybe?

  27. Mayuri Karela says:

    Love the giveaway! I really want to try bumble and bumble products but on a ban from shopping! x

  28. Ella says:

    I almost splurged on (what would be my fourth!) pair of Topshop Leigh jeans – so comfy but I can’t really justify a collection of jeans worth £160! I love zalando, I have a lovely pair of boots from there :-)

  29. Megan says:

    Today I stopped myself from buying an Essie nail polish and a Dairy Milk. I wish I’d bought the Dairy Milk now, though!

  30. Victoria N says:

    Thanks for the giveaway. I’ve been attracted to all the Mac collections lately, especially the year of the snake one, but I have managed to restrain myself!
    Thanks for the giveaway x


  31. Moz says:

    It was actualy today. I wanted to buy the revolution brush bx-25, but it is very expensive for my wallet !

  32. SarahC. says:

    Oh, I’ve had to stop myself buying *all* the things recently, but today it was cake and a mustard yellow leather satchel. Ace giveaway, thanks!

  33. Sue says:

    Eyeshadow and chocolate today x

  34. I’ve never shopped with Zalando so thats intriguing! My last item i stopped myself from buying (good question FYI) was indulging in some Kerastace hair goodies, I’ve got so much shitting hair stuff from my PR stint – i’m dying to use something else 😉 (and half decent ;-P – alas i should finish it all first tbh xxx

  35. Sarah says:

    This is great! The last thing I stopped myself from buying was Illamasqua Nail Varnish “Fragile.” Thanks! xx

  36. Laura says:

    I stopped myself from buying one of the new MAC Brow Fluidlines as it swatched a bit too dark. I am still trying to justify it in my head though!

  37. Laura says:

    I had to stop myself from buying one of the new L’Oreal glamshine stain splashes…but only because it was in a colour I wasn’t so sure of!

  38. Terri says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was the new Urban Decay Oz palette. So pretty, but I have too many eyeshadows!

  39. Madeleine says:

    The last thing I stopped buying was a Blythe doll – I have wanted one for 3 years but they are so expensive!

  40. Kimberley says:

    The last thing I resisted buying was…….all of the items I’m watching on eBay. I’m a shopping sadomasicist, I watch things on eBay that I know I cant afford to bid on. It hurts, but it hurts so good.

  41. Ria says:

    I had to stop myself buying Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, as I just can’t justify any non-essential purchases…. Thanks for the giveaway! x

  42. Dora says:

    I do believe that that last thing I stopped myself from buying was a really expensive but oh-so-pretty pair of Clarks Shoes first thing after New Year. It was so not the right time and I so wanted them.

  43. The last thing i stopped myself buying was a new Boing (Benefit) concealer. Mine’s completely empty now but i decided to be sensible and get a high street concealer instead. Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer replaced boing and it’s honestly quite amazing!

  44. Alexandra says:

    A Filofax organiser. I want a fancy one in a fancy color (turquoise? I THINK SO. Gimme!), but my budget can’t really support that decision at the moment. Maybe later this year.

  45. Nicky says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was a pair of gourgeous black, metallic toe cap courts for £35. I couldn’t afford them at the time but my 30th birthday is on Saturday so I thought I would treat myself ….they are now out of stock in my size EVERYWHERE :( gutted…..

  46. Janie says:

    OK, OK, I confess. The last thing I stopped myself buying was 3 and a half hours ago- I desperately wanted a bag of Malteasers, but had to resist due to excess pancake consumption last night. If only the craving would F*c* Of*!

  47. natasha says:

    i’m quite an impulsive buyer so i usually just let myself buy something if i want it…but this morning i was in superdrug and stopped myself buying a beautyuk lip vinyl and some of the rimmel apocalips, i’m quite chuffed with myself for it actually ^.^!
    thanks for the giveaway xx

  48. Gemma M says:

    That last thing I had to stop myself from buying was MORE products from the soap & glory range. I was in boots… it was on 3 for 2… but out of the 2 products I ACTUALLY wanted… only 1 was in stock!!

  49. Ida says:

    Some Wet n Wild matte lip sticks.

  50. Sydney says:

    Golly, would you look at this giveaway. Bravo you!

    I’m constantly having to tell myself no on a daily basis, I will see a nail varnish I have seen you review or an eyeliner that looked great in a FOTD and have to smack my own hand to keep myself in check but I don’t really see these as big things, everyday I like to deny myself something as I know just how lucky we all are.

    A big, and register-able (let’s pretend that’s a word) STOP-NOW-SYDNEY-OR-YOU-WONT EAT-FOR-THREE-MONTHS was a beautiful rose gold Burberry mac that was on SALE, we’re talking less than half price, at the airport and I had to practise some real self-restraint. Tricking yourself into not buying an ‘investment piece’ is so much harder than you realise :(

  51. Charlotte Oatey says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was the Glamglow mask, mainly because that morning (valentines day) rather than recieving a flood of cards, I got a speeding ticket :( Would love to treat myself with something from zalando. Thanks xxx

  52. muesliisthebest says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying were these:

    SO BEAUTIFUL, UGH. Who doesn’t need a pair of bottle green boots, eh?

  53. Lindsay S says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was the Daniel Sandler watercolour blush in Cherub. I so desperately want to try it, but no pennies til I get paid :(. Great giveaway, thanks!

  54. Assiya says:

    Well if we’re talking beauty products, the last thing I stopped myself buying was the Dior nude bronzer and the naked 2 palette by urban decay, I know I neeeeeed these two products, its not just a matter of want :) so as a result I spend a healthy amount of the day coveting these items online. Ah Ça est la vie!

  55. Kelly says:

    More nail polish! Moving soon so on a spending ban and this makes me very VERY sad!

    Be worth it though!

  56. Dejeniera says:

    I last stopped myself from buying a pair of leather cowboy ankle boots from Matalan. They’re really stylish and look a lot more expensive than they are but I had to remind myself I have a budget for a reason! Fingers crossed I win and can pick up some boot beauties from Zalando :)

  57. Mel Briscoe says:

    I stopped myself from buying a new watch last week but the one I already have works fine so I didn’t really have a good excuse to buy it.

  58. Assiya says:

    Well if we’re talking beauty products, the last thing I stopped myself buying was the Dior nude bronzer and the naked 2 palette by urban decay, I know I neeeeeed these two products, its not just a matter of want so as a result I spend a healthy amount of the day coveting these items online.

  59. Zohra says:

    I wanted to buy a a box of CHOCOLATES that were on discount by 50% but was reminded of my diet by my “lovely” daughter. :-(

  60. Renita says:

    The new Urban Decay Oz palettes!! I wish I could have everything I wanted :(

  61. Mel says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying was a new handheld Hoover, as I wanted to have a cleaner car rather than a cleaner house! And couldn’t afford both!!

  62. Melinda says:

    The last thing I stopped myself from buying was Chanel’s La Somptueuse lipstick. I tried it on in store and it looked lovely, but with my birthday coming up I just knew I should wait and see (and maybe give some not so subtle hints).

  63. Emily says:

    New Look had a sale on sneaker wedges. I already have a much-loved pair and I really want black ones, but I just can’t justify it this month… it was a difficult few minutes, but I got through. But don’t let me back on the website.

  64. Jude Dunn says:

    Fabulous giveaway. The last thing I stopped myself buying was Botox, I was made redundant last year and I can’t bear having to ask my husband for cash for something so frivolous, although as soon as I get a job I will be booking myself in for a top up immediately :) Jude. @jadlgw

  65. Claire roper says:

    The last thing I stopped myself buying was some more ankle boots! Have developed an addiction to them and too many in the sales. The ones above have caught my eye too! Aghh must step away from the boots :)

  66. Fragile, Mottle and Speckle Nail Varnishes from Illamasqua’s I’mperfection when I was there on Friday…and Shoot, together with Eurydice and Kontrol which I’ve been hankering for for a while ….confess I did succumb to Resist and Nurture though ;p

    Today I stopped myself from buying a lovely bag!
