Lucy likes parcels!

Hola!

I've gone a bit mental with the online shopping recently and this morning I was greeted by three particularly exciting looking parcels.

Some goodies from Liz Earle, Love Make Up and eBay!

As I keep on mentioning, I am a massive fan of Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, (it's literally the shit!) so when my last bottle ran out I was in desperate need of a repurchase, as soon as possible. In my last order I also got a sample size Instant Boost Skin Tonic which I really liked it. It's so fresh but gentle and works so well when used with the Hot Cloth Cleanser so when I saw the current January skincare regime essentials package, I thought, sod it, and added it to the basket. 




In the Essentials Regime package you get the cleanser, muslin cloths, tonic and moisturiser suitable for your skin type; I went for the Skin Repair Light Moisturiser for combination/oily skin. As well as that you get a full size Energising Body Wash, which smells (like everything else from Liz Earle) amazing! I'm going to stick  to this skincare regime for the forseeable future - as well as using an eye cream, Origins Super Spot Remover and No 7 Protect and Perfect Night Cream on the less oily areas of my face at night - as it's all so gentle yet effective and I will definitely let you know how I get on with it!

From Love Make Up, I bought two Sigma brushes (Angled Top Synthetic F84 Kabuki and Tapered Blending Sigma PRO E35), NYX glitter cream palette in Bronze Goddess and NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Boho Chic.





I absolutely love my purchases from Love Make Up! The cream blush creates such a nice natural, dewy flush on the cheeks and I can't wait to use the glitter palette over the top of a bronze/brown smokey eye! The fact they're a cream formulation means that there isn't too much fallout either! I am such a fan of Sigma brushes, and the E35 is just brilliant for blending, whilst the F84 is so soft and dense.

Finally, made a cheeky eBay purchase! I love Ciate Paint Pots and I am still loving deep red shades so could not believe this was only £3.70! What a bargain (link!)




Have you had any presents from the postman recently?!

Hope you're having a lovely day!

Lots of love,
Lucy xxx
