Blog sales are my new favourite thing to do. I love it, but I find that I am always late and missing all the good items, except...this time!
I was lucky to catch Nadia's blog sale over at "It's always summer on the inside", and I actually saw 2 of my wishlist items on her blog sale!! :::Happy dance::::
First I got the
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse OR
(gold shimmering oil)
I have been wanting to try this so much, but it's a steep price for this baby.
1.6 fl oz is sold at SpaceNK for £23, and the 3.3 fl oz is £37.
Eck! That's why no matter how much I wanted it, I told myself I would get it during Christmas or something, BUT...
I got a 75% full bottle for only £6 (including postage)
So I definitely tried it today.
The smell is slightly sweet with a jasmine hint to it, so I looked up the ingredients (I was definitely off lol)
It contains a cocktail of 6 precious plant oils:
I'll be honest, this made me a bit nervous when I saw it come out of the bottle like this.
Blame it on the numerous failed self-tanning experiences, but
Instead, I got an almost invisible slightly shimmery layer.
Hmmmm....I think I expected this to be a bit more golden/bronze-y, but instead I just got some oil with some shimmer in it. It's very subtle, so I know a lot of people will like it; however, I was expecting it to be a bit more pigmented.
My skin feels very smooth/soft, and if you use this, you don't need lotion.
At £23, I would have been disappointed, at £6, not so much.
My next wishlist item that I was able to get off this blog sale was the
Chanel Life Lumiere Smoothing & Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer
No. 30 Abricot Lumiere
Ok, I saved so much money with this product. I have tried this at the counters and loved loved loved it, but £33 was very steep - so I passed, saving my little sample as best as I could, but I got this at £10!!!!
I was thrilled. I could not for the life of me get a picture good enough to show you a before and after, but let me tell you why I love this product so much
1) Smooth for the skin around your eye
2) Easily application
3) No creasing like some foundations
4) Truly covers my dark circles and puffiness - very pigmented
5) You get a lot of concealer for what you pay
6) Does not irritate my eyes
This is my favourite eye concealer out there!
I can't say enough about it.
I have not used too many eye concealers, but from the ones I have, I have not found one better than this one.
Honestly, worth the money...I didn't not get it because I didn't think it was worth it, I didn't get it, because £33 was out of my budget at the moment, but £10 is not and this is the best £10 that I spent in a LONG time.
So that was my small blog sale haul. I hope the reviews were useful.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
