You didn't think that I'd return and not blog about my little UK "loot", did you? :)
First of all, let me just say that I had the loveliest time in London and in the UK in general and that I can't wait to plan my next trip there!
More details on my trip, as well as a few photos, will be coming up in a future post (and I literally need to edit hundreds of them); for now I'll just show you the beauty goodies that I came back with (a beauty blogger's priorities, what did you expect?)!
So here goes:
Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray (which is a bit of a let down, just as lovely Tali warned me), some Topshop makeup items, L'oreal Infallible eyeshadow in "Sahara Treasure" (and I finally have the three ones that I wanted from all three countries they were released in!), Boots No 7 Extravagant Volume mascara, Collection 2000 concealer (the one that everyone raves about), Benefit Watt's Up highlighter (my god, they have the best counters ever), one of the new summer perfumes from The Body Shop and the feet pampering kit from The Body Shop as well (this was a neccessity, my feet needed some extra TLC after all that walking (think several miles every day).
Naturally, a UK beauty haul wouldn't be complete without a stop at Lush, right?
Being a total Lush noob, I just shopped by the scents that intrigued me the most (come to think of it I should have picked some Karma soap as well), and, so, I ended up with: bath melts in "Floating Island" and "Melting Marshmellow Moment", soaps in "Figs and Leaves", "Honey I Washed the Kids" (now I see why everyone loves this), and "Sultana of Soap" (which definitely lives up to its name)! The Bubblegum lip scrub was a little unexpected purchase (hard to say no to it when it's right there at the counter and you recall all those fellow bloggers raving about it)!
I think it's a sensible little haul, isn't it? I found it hard to restrain myself, especially if you take into account that beauty shopping in the UK is like heaven for a beauty blogger (I could easily live at the Liberty beauty section and Lush shops are so inviting)!
Hope you enjoyed this one! More UK snaps to come soon! ;)
