My Names Adrienne and I'm a Shoppaholic….

Yes, I said that I wouldn't be posting on here until after the re-launch but I really couldn't resist a quick little post on the make-up things I bought yesterday!!
And yes, I'm pretty sure i'm verging on needing to join some sort of shoppaholics anonymous meeting (and maybe one specifically for the over use of Lush?)

Oh well it's my blog and i'll do what I want too! (I'm now singing that song in my head! Which reminds me! I'm 20 on friday!! What??!!)

So here's what I bought!

 Snow Fairy Gift Box, Dragons Egg Bath Ballistic, Blousey Shampoo

First was Lush, Obviously!!! I actually haven't been in since the start of December so I sort of felt like I was returning home having been away for a few weeks! It was quite sad to go in and not see any of the girls I had become friendly with while they worked there over Christmas but Vicki the manageress was in and helped me find a face wash to try! Above I have my staple shampoo which despite the strong smell while it's in the tub I absolutely adore in my hair and it has really helped keep my colour long lasting and stop it from getting so greasy so quickly! The gift box is just all things Snow Fairy including the shower gel a soap and a shimmer bar. Dragons egg is one bath bomb i've had my eye on for a while!! It smells like sherbet and has popping candy in it so keep an eye on my instagram (just search beautyasthekatwalks and it'll come up!) to see my thoughts when I use it! 
Below is a small tester of the Angels on Bare skin face, i'm really excited to see if this works on my skin, it's primarily for use on oily to combination spot prone skin which is what I am. It helps to even out the oil which in turn helps cut down in break outs! I'll keep you posted! Next is the absolutely gorgeous Motivation eyeliner! Vicki showed me this a while ago when I was in picking up some samples and I fell in love with it but at around £18 I just couldn't justify it at the time. When I was in yesterday though, it had a 50% off sticker on it so I decided to go for it! The colour just makes me think of mermaids!!!! Way too excited to use it!!

Tester of Angels on Bare Skin Face Wash, Motivation Eyeliner

From Lush we went to Topshop, I had been shown one of their lipsticks by a friend last week and I fell in love with the colour (Beguiled) so went in to see if they had it.

Screen Siren, Beguiled

I left with Screen Siren which is a gorgeous bright red and I managed to snag the very last Beguiled in the shop after a sales assistant went and rummaged around in the store! Can't wait to wear one of these at the weekend for my birthday (look out for a FOTD and OOTD)

Next was Boots and Superdrug.

Trick or Treatment Under Eye Concealer, Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser, Too Faced Shadow Insurance

My local Boots and Superdrug aren't that big so I always look forward to going up to Glasgow so I can go to the big ones and have a look at the different brands and products they have to offer. The Soap&Glory concealer is something i've read and heard about but never something i've looked at myself so I thought i'd pick it up and give it a go, expect to see a review very soon! Maybelline announced their pore eraser towards the end of last year and in the blogger part of the internet there has been a flurry of excitement with people comparing it to Benefits Porefessional so i thought i'd see what all the fuss was about! And Too Faced is a brand that up until very recently wasn't available in the UK let alone in Boots so after hearing so many lovely Americans rant and rave about their Shadow Insurance I HAD to give it a go!

MUA Pro-Base Conceal and Brighten Kit in Porcelain 
(I'm so sorry about this photo! Not happy with it at all but none of the others I took to replace it worked either!)

A friend told me about this product from MUA a few months back and it has done wonders for her dark circles and discolouration so I wanted to see if it would work as well on me!

Sleek Blush By 3 in LACE, Sleep Vintage Romance Palette

Sleek is one of the brands my local Superdrug doesn't carry so up until yesterday I didn't own any Sleek products at all. I'm very excited to try both of these!  For me when I think of Sleek I think of all the good things i've heard about their blushes so instead of buying just one I decided I would give this palette a go, a friend has it and I especially loved the colour Guipure, it reminds me a little bit of NARS Orgasm! A peach pink with gold flecks through it. The colours in the Vintage Romance palette are gorgeous (unfortunately the picture doesn't quite do it justice) and I can't wait to start creating looks using them! 

So thats it! I've now put myself on a spending ban! I'm not allowed to buy anything else for myself! I have an ASOS order on it's way but that will be the last haul you see this month! 

I mean it!!!

I'm serious!!!

Have a good week!
