If you read my post on "What's In My Travel Makeup Bag?" you will know I was recently in Cork for our family holiday. We had such a fantastic time together, but of course no break away is complete without some shopping. I only stopped off in three places and I'm delighted with my treats that I saved up for.
First stop was Boots of course and I picked up just a three things, I have to say I was very reserved.
There was a 3 for 2 offer on Maybelline products when I popped in so I got:
Maybelline The Eraser Eye €11.99. A tad bit on the yellow side for me but there is great moisture in it.
Maybelline Color Show €5.99 and I love this colour, lasting power wasn't great so would need a top coat next time for this.
Maybelline Colour Elixir €10.49. All I can say after trying this out is that I really want more for the collection!
Since getting my first taste (so to speak) of MAC last month I knew I had to pick up something else. I was in desperate need of a new foundation and after being colour matched I got MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW13. I definitely want to review this soon to let you know what I think. €31.50
I fell in love with these scarves straight away and for €6 each, I definitely couldn't go wrong. I do love a bit of Tartan for Autumn/Winter!
The fox slipper socks were €3.50 and come in handy waiting for me by the bed every morning
I am a big fan of tops with collars so I was drawn to this. There were other colours but the pink put a bit of life back into my pale skin. Great for day wear or for the office! €12.00
The colour didn't come out to good in this picture but it is a minty green cardigan with a batwing edge. For €12 I think the shape would suit anybody and a cardigan is always handy to have.
No trip to Pennys could be complete without a canvas shopping bag to put everything into. I love these bags for popping onto the handle of the buggy or if I get an hour to myself to go out you will be sure to see me with one of these bags. €2.00
