Copenhagen made me do it!

So you guys know I was on holiday in Copenhagen recently and obviously no holiday is complete without a little shopping. This haul was over a few days. The shops I visited include Sephora, Magasin (Department store in Copenhagen) and Duty Free.

I've already started using a few of these bits as I couldn't wait to take pictures so I'll give you ladies the low down soon enough :)
This is the beauty side of my haul. Recently I have also been picking up more accessories so I'll take a few pictures and be sure to post them on here. Have a lovely week x

Oldies but Goodies

How often do you go through your stash? There's so many little gems lurking in my drawer, or products I've been using for ages that just haven't had a mention in ages so I'm back with my oldies but goodies post.
Recently I've fallen back in love with -

Nars Deep Throat Blusher. This genuinely might be one of the best blushers I've ever tried...and trust me I've tried a few/hundreds. It's just the perfect combination of soft peachy pinkiness that I believe will lift any skin tone and give a youthful glow.

Urban Decay Naked 1. Now this guy just got forgotten about after 2, 3 and every other brand coming out with their version of the perfect wearable nude palette. Recently I dug this out of my drawer, have been using it pretty much every day and out of all the Naked palettes this still remains my favourite. The warmth of the colours is just perfect for those with Asian skintone.

Loreal Fairest Nude.
I hunted high and low for this lipstick after one of my favourite YouTube gurus Annie Jaffrey raved about it time and time again. I believe it is a U.S shade only so I paid an extortionate amount on EBay for it....I don't regret a thing though. It's a gorgeous pinkey nude, creamy and just a lovely day to day colour.

Bare Minerals Illuminating Mineral Veil. I remember when Bare Minerals were the brand that everyone raved about....the benefits of mineral make up blah blah. This powder....just smooths over imperfections and highlights your whole face.

I think shopping my stash might be a good idea for a while as it's getting pretty out of control :)
