The balm

A Few Newbies


I’ve been shopping lately. I’ve got the itch. The need for more!! (Cause we all know that’s exactly what I need…) My stash of makeup is still packed away, waiting for my vanity table to arrive before I finally organize and unpack. So I just added to the stash. Crossed off a few items on my list and didn’t have to unpack (two birds). My little haul was made up of a few trips, to Rexall, Ulta, Target, and even a few items currently being shipped across the pond from Boots!

– Nyx Smokey Palette

– The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer

– CK One Mascara

 Real Techniques Eye Buffer Brush

– Revlon ColourStay Liquid Liner in Greenspark

– Nuxe Reve de Miel

– Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave in Conditioner

– Orly BB Cream

and I’m patiently awaiting my delivery of Olay CC Cream and Soap & Glory Archery Brown Pencil, coming soon from my sister’s local Boots in Cork. There is nothing I love more than adding new arsenal to the lineup, so look forward to some great reviews coming up soon!! Have you ever tried any of these products? What do you think?

It’s been quite awhile since I let you catch a glimpse of my ever expanding shopping list hidden in the depths of my iPhone notes app; slowly being checked off but mainly just looming over my head as “I want you so badly….when will you be mine” types of purchases. So let me share with you now. Christmas is coming up people, start making those lists!

1. The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nudes

2. Sonia Kashuk Contour Brush #113

3. Stila Mind Palette 

4. Tarte Tres Chic Park Avenue Princess Contour Palette

5. Bobby Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base

6. Sonia Kashuk Buffing Brush #130

Now it may not seem like a long list but I’ve shed blood, sweat and tears removing many-a-product from the list recently. I’ve also checked quite a few off!! Stay tuned for an upcoming ‘newbies’ update! What have you been lusting over lately?! Any Christmas lists started?
