Impulse Haul: Nails and Lips


My major downfall when it comes to shopping splurges is without a doubt nail varnishes and lipsticks. I already own way, way more than I could ever use up in my lifetime.. but for some reason these are the two areas that I'm constantly drawn to and always feel like I need more.

I made two swift and spontaneous online orders last week; the first from Fragrance Direct while I was hunting for bargain £1.99 Essie shades but only found one that looked wearable: Mojito Madness. While I was there I thought I might as well make the order worthwhile and throw a few more things into the online basket (as you do), so clicked my way over to the OPI section and ordered three shades for just £3.99 each: Ladies and Magenta-men (a shade that I mentioned I was lusting after in this OPI nails post I wrote here), Elephantastic Pink, and Kiss Me On My Tulips. No, you cannot have too many different shades of pink nail varnish, contrary to what any boyfriend may tell you. 


I then discovered that Bourjois' fairly recently released Rouge Edition lipsticks were available for a discounted price from the Bourjois store via Amazon and I purchased two shades for the slightly cheaper price of £5.99 each. If you like these lipsticks you can find the seller here, and I plan to do a full post on the shades that I have very shortly - so keep your eyes peeled! I also snapped up a Barry M lipstick in my favourite lip colour: bright fuschia - a shade you also cannot have too many of. This is called Punky Pink (145) and you can find it on Amazon here.


Phew! Stop me shopping - Please!
Look out for future posts coming soon on the Bourjois lipsticks and the OPI nail varnishes. The Barry M lipstick may also make it's way into a 'Girl About Town' dupes post that I am planning.

Thanks for reading!
