Beauty Haul

On the way home from work tonight i popped into Sallys as they were having a VAT free day. I was only expecting to buy a few basic beauty items...some individual fake lashes and a tanning mitt...and of course i picked up more!

I like to apply fake tan with a tanning mitt to stop the dreaded orange palms and also i find this is the best way to avoid streaks as it blends everything in well and super fast! I have been searching everywhere for a tanning mitt for the past few weeks – and Superdrug  Body Shop, M&S etc... and there seems to be either a shortage or they have stopped stocking them! Instead I have had to make do with latex gloves which im not a big fan of, I also bought a baby sponge which applies the fake tan well, but is a bit tricky. So really pleased to see a tanning mitt in Sallys – however i thought £4 was a bit steep!

I was really impressed with the individual lashes i had applied in Shu Uemura, but i don’t think there is any point spending a lot of money on these as they just last one application. I picked up some cheaper ones that look identical to Shu Uemura by Salon Systems which were around £4 for a pack. I got the bulb free, black short as just want to apply about 5-6 on each outer corner of the eye to thicken and lengthen.
I also was tempted to pick up some OPI polishes that were reduced but i think my nail polish collection is getting out of hand! I couldn’t resist picking up Ruby Pumps by China Glaze from the new Alice in Wonderland Collection. It is a gorgeous Ruby Red colour with lots of sparkle and reminds me of childhood.

I also noticed there was alot of products reduced; and to my amazement the Jessica Simpson Hairdo range was heavily marked down. I picked up the 22 Inch clip in straight extensions in the colour honey ginger (which matched perfectly to my hair colour), reduced from £59.99 to £17. It comes already styled and in a hairnet to keep it in place, the clips are sewn into the hair along with 2 sectioning clips.

The hair does look a little ‘barbie doll’ due to being shiny – i believe this is synthetic hair not real. I still love the look and takes 10 seconds to clip in – there’s no need in styling your own hair to blend in the with the hairdo like normal hair extensions take to look natural. I also picked up a Loreal crystal gloss spray reduced from £8.99 to £1.91 – I really don’t believe this size can is worth £9!! I think this spray will be good to use with the Jessica Simpson hairdo. I’m really excited to try these products out!
