M&S had an offer a few weeks ago with 20% off everything in their Beauty department so this was the perfect opportunity to grab the things I had on my ‘to buy’ list.
I had wanted to try these Rosie for Autograph Cream Eye Shadow Sticks ever since their release. The collection is beautiful with rose gold packaging <3 I wanted to pick up a lipstick too really, but there’s just not many swatches around and I’m pretty particular with my nude shades – I didn’t want to buy yet another lipstick online that just wasn’t what I hoped. I can’t find the collection in any M&S stores near me but I’m hoping it’ll become more widely available in store soon.
The colours I chose are ‘Almond Eyes‘ and ‘Sparkle and Magic‘ and they’re very pretty. Almond Eyes I was hoping would be more pink but it definitely errs on the side of gold. Sparkle and Magic likewise I assumed would be grey, which it is but it has hints of green and brown also.
Alpha H’s Liquid Gold is a repurchase for me and I LOVE this supersize 200ml bottle! So great! And I got it for £32 which is basically the same as the price for the standard 100ml – WINNING. I love this product and had really missed it once my first bottle ran out months ago. It’s a fantastic treatment and lazy product that contains liquorice extract and glycolic acid. When I just can’t be bothered with a long-winded skincare routine in the evening, I can just cleanse my face and wipe Liquid Gold over it and I’m done. It can act as a toner as well as a moisturiser. This shouldn’t be done more frequently than every other evening though. It’s quite strong so I don’t know how sensitive skin would cope but I, with combination/dry skin, get on well with it. It’s brightening and helps clear and keep spots at bay. It’s one I think I’ll always go back to if my skin’s in a crisis.
