So if you follow me on social media you may already know that as of Tuesday afternoon, I’ve finally gone on maternity leave (I left it fairly late at 39 weeks as I wanted the most time I could have with the baby off work and also because we couldn’t really afford for me to take it any earlier). To celebrate, Carly and I went on a little shopping trip for some girly essentials I had run out of.
Although Carly is a bit of a tomboy in most respects, she loves having her nails painted ‘just like mummy’ so we picked up a lovely red shade of Barry M nail varnish to try. As it was buy one get one half price on all Barry M makeup we also picked up a pink lipstick for me for everyday as my current no7 shade is a little too dark for my skin tone and can make me seem a bit washed out. I had done some research online prior to the shopping trip and found the reviews were pretty good for this lipstick so fingers crossed.
I also picked up a new Primer and eye liner, both different from my usual brands, so I will see how these go. The Rimmel primer was in a two for £10 deal so I also stocked up on my trusty lipgloss from the brand at the same time.
The collection 2000 eyeliner was too good to pass up at only £1.99 and as I used my points to buy it, it was technically free! I also got another Garnier tissue mask to relax and pamper with now I’m off work.
