Debenham's Haul


Sometimes I grudge paying 5p for a bag, but this Dior one was so, so worth it. Hello beautiful.
 

 
 

So Debenhams had a 10% event on but failed to include all the best brands for me (MAC, Too Faced & Urban Decay) so I took this as a sign that I need to branch out elsewhere and explore... so that's what I did.
 
First up was a trip to the Clarins counter. The Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (£18.00) has been raved about constantly in the blogging world but I have failed to pick up on. As I have been longing for a lip gloss recently this one has been in my mind for about a month. It really doesn't disappoint. I picked this up in the shade "Rosewood Shimmer" my perfect nude shade. The smell is incredible - like sweet vanilla.
 
Next up was LancĂ´me. I have never bought anything from them before, but these Ombre Hypnose Stylo (£20.00) instantly caught my eye. I recently picked up a By Terry Ombre Blackstar and since have been completely obsessed. But I must admit the formula of this is actually slightly better (more longlasting) than my ByTerry. I got mine in Taupe Quartz. (Although I really do need to try the Kiko ones!)
 
 
 
 
Can we all just take a moment to admire this beauty from Dior? Aaaaaah its beautiful. Dior really do know how to do packaging well. So this is a Dior Addict lipstick (£26.50) in "881 Fashion Night" there is a story behind this, even if its a bit odd. My BFF and I were shopping a few weeks ago when we seen this. It instantly reminded us of a lipstick my Mum had bought me back in the early 2000's. It was by Virgin Vie. Every single night out we would both wear this, until there was nothing left of the lipstick. So this was picked as a replacement/nostalgia product.
 
Plus look at that CD embellished into the lipstick. It's beyond perfection.
 
The Balm's Nude'Tude (£30.00) was a total impulse buy. But for once I really don't regret it. Yes you can buy this from Debenhams, so I sneaked it on here, but I actually picked this up from TKMaxx for £9.99. Which was a total winner if you ask me. Plus the product is fab too - but it does now make me want the Nude Dude too. Damn.
 
 





What have you picked up recently? Have you ever bought something just through Nostalgia? Let me know in the comments below :)
