Okay so, tragic anecdote over, and i'll get underway telling you about the few things I picked up. I had gone with a
I made a trip to the Sephora brand lip section first (duh) and furiously elbowed my way through the crowds of excitable girls to grab a couple of the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stains.
Amelia Liana is to thank for this purchase, as I've heard her raving about them for a while, so after drooling over them for months, I caved and bought the shades 01 Always Red (classic red) and 03 Strawberry Kissed (bright pink-y red). I always find myself drawn to the reds, even though I have near on 20 other red lipstick shades already... the other colours just didn't appeal to me as much as a good old rouge. Both leave a vibrant yet lightweight matte colour on the lips that is opaque in one coat. Let me tell you, this lip stain doesn't budge. Through cocktails and kisses, your lip colour will be locked in all night.
I hadn't anticipated buying any perfume, but the roller-ball stand just caught my eye, and Chloe was calling out to me. Travel size products are so darn cute, and at $25, how could anyone resist! Now, I'm no expert at describing scents, but to me, Chloe is floral, almost powdery (not in an old lady way) with notes of peony and rose. Essentially it's fresh, feminine and fast becoming my favourite scent for the summer - I may have to upgrade and buy the full size when I run out.
