Stress = Shopping

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

How do you deal with a stressful situation? For some people it's breathing in and out, for others it's counting to 10, for me it's shopping up a storm. That's normal right? Well that's exactly what I did last week after my interview.

The first place I hit up was the Nars beauty counter in Selfridges and bought the highly coveted Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Amande. Everyone raves about this so I thought it was about time I tried it to see what all the hype is about.

Then because I can't be in a Boots store without buying a nail polish ( I really have to do some about that ) I bought Essie Bikini So Teeny, a pretty cornflower blue with subtle shimmer.

OH but I didn't stop there, whilst in Boots I also repurchased the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.

To top it off I also placed a cheeky but really essential cult Beauty order for the Oskia Renaissance Mask and the Heal Gel Eye which I had been lusting after for ages and being the skincare junkie that I am, it was only a matter of time before I caved and bought those two products.

Reviews will follow after I have had time to test these products out - but tell me have you been buying anything? Any good purchases? let me know in the comments.


  1. Oooh I love my Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. I dread the day it runs out! Your other picks look extremely tempting...


  2. Ahah, oh how I shop when I'm stressed... But usually I make good buys, lol! A bad one I recently did was the last Clinique foundation though: I saw the lightest shade was orange, but I took it home with me and when I tried it on that night I could have been an Umpa Loompa! It's going to patiently wait for summer, but I fear it's going to be too dark even then! :/ xx
