Monday is most definitely my favourite day of the week.

And you won't hear many people saying that, but I love it because it's my one day of the week to myself, where I can do whatever I want, although last Monday did feature a lot of tidying my room up and cleaning it which isn't that fun, but I did manage a little trip to Boots, and Superdrug and Primark, so that was nice. And this Monday, here I am writing about it, because guess who's good at delaying things?? *Me*.

Last week, I went for a little shop, only a little one but I did manage to hit up the NYX counter which was a lovely treat because I haven't had time before to stop and browse and normally it's really busy but there was no one there, so I was free to browse.

The ONLY thing that lets Boots down in Northampton is that it's counters are all so messy! They hardly ever seem to be stocked up and there's generally foundation and other products that have gone everywhere and it looks so untidy. But that didn't stop me from looking it just made me kinda sad...

The first thing I picked up was this Liquid Eyeliner from Natural Collection which was £1.99. Somebody had it at a party and I just thought it was really good, there's a lot more product that the one I normally buy from Collection 2000. The only thing I have struggled to get used to has been the longer brush, only because I'm used to a shorter brush with a slightly more sturdier nib, but practice makes perfect, so I'll get back to you on this one...

The next things I picked up were from the NYX counter, and I got these three lip products and a white eyeshadow base. The white eyeshadow base I absolutely love, it  shows up eyeshadow colours a lot better and brighter than without the base. And the lip products are insane, they just don't go anywhere, they literally don't move. I also love the colours, I mean hello autumn, am I right?

I got two soft matte lip creams in the shades Copenhagen and San Paulo, and I got a Liquid Suede Cream lipstick in the shade Kitten Heels. I freakin' love all of them, so much!

Then I headed over to Max Factor where I picked up the 2000 Calorie mascara, before picking up my absolute fave Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. I love the Lash Sensational mascara for my top lashes but find the brush is a little too big for my bottom lashes and I found the same with the 2000 Calorie mascara, great for top lashes but not so great for the little lashes, which is fine obvs.

Then I headed to Superdrug, where I absolutely adore the make-up counters because they're so cool and clean and tidy and a really good design . But this is where I was picking things up to build my make-up kit. For those of you who don't know, I am a beauty therapist and often do a lot of wedding make-overs (in fact I had one this Saturday just gone, which was my first one as a freelance beauty therapist/make-up artist) and make-overs for my mum and sister too. When I was in college we got given a make-up kit, that was okay, but normally before I have used a combination of my make-up and either my sister's or my mum's. So I've started to build up a kit, and I know they're only drugstore products but I can't afford high-end make-up yet, sob.

So I picked up this setting spray from L'Oreal, and these three Collection Lasting Perfection concealers in these shades Cool Medium 02, Warm Medium 03 and Dark 04.

And also just added in a Tanya Burr Cosmetics palette because I swatched the shades in the shop and basically fell in love, but this is more for me although I did use it at the weekend because it's just so pretty. The packaging kind of put me off before, I won't lie to you, but the actual product itself is really nice and I should have not judged the product on it's packaging, and it is kinda cute. I just thought it looked a little bit young - but I should have checked the products out before judging and it's my own fault for not realising this sooner. Soz, TB.

So that's today's post, let me know if you've been loving any new beauty products.
See you soon,
