London haul part two.

So, the London haul continues. I don`t really have that much to show you guys, but here it is =)

Revlon Colorstay Foundation

I had heard so many great things about Revlon Colorstay Foundation on You Tube, so when I saw it in London I thought I`d give it a go. I don`t normally wear foundation these days, and most certainly not in the summer, but hey. I got mine in the shade 180 Sand Beige, and it`s the one for combination/ oily skin. The shade is a bit light for me at the moment, as the sun made a guest appearance last weekend, but I`ll save this foundation for darker times I guess… I`m super happy with the coverage, but that may just be me not being used to something that covers more than a BB cream and tinted moisturizers. But I do like it! I have only tried it on once, but I`m a fan. Sadly I don`t think we have Revlon in Norway, otherwise I would try to find it in a darker shade as well.

Next is the Neutrogena visibly clear 2 in 1 face wash and mask. I love this product, both as a wash and a mask. It has tiny tiny exfoliating beads in it, but not enough to call it a scrub if you get me. I haven`t seen this in Norway, but we have other Neutrogena products, so maybe I`ve just missed it. Will keep eyes open. (I did however buy two, so I guess I`m good for a while…)

I got two perfumes at Gatwick on my way home. One is the Stella McCartney Summer Rose, which we don`t have here as far as I know… (That seems to be the theme of this haul.) It`s lovely, fresh, floral and light, and I love it! It`s not a scent that lasts very long, but I can live with that. It`s yummy! The other perfume is my third bottle of the same one. Nina by Nina Ricci. This is also a floral, young perfume, but I find this lasts a bit longer, and is a bit stronger smelling. I think this will be one I`ll keep buying for many years. Loves it.

This is the Gosh long-lasting brow pen in the color Wheat. I saw this in Essiebutton`s browvideo on YouTube, and wanted to try it for myself. I think it`s great, and cool toned enough for me. I`ve never used anything like this for my brows, I´ve used brow pens and brown eyeshadows really… But now I`m converted. I think this is a great product, that is if you find the right shade. I know I´ve seen Gosh in Norway, so there`s actually a chance I`ll find this again when it runs out!

The last product in this haul, part two, is this serum from Soap and Glory. It`s the 6 in 1 superboost moisture lotion. It promises to give a dewy, smooth, amazing face. I used it morning and night when we were in London, and I really liked it! If it had SPF it would be perfect. It smells great, is light, moisturizing and simply very appealing to me. I have never really used a serum before, at least not one for daytime. I have a feeling it`s not the best serum for my skintype, but I still like it. (There`s something about the promise of a dewy face that makes me a tad wary.)

So, that`s it for now. I have bought a few more things since we got back, so there just might be another haul post coming up soon(ish). Hope you like it. I haven`t really included anything other than makeup and skincare, but maybe I`ll do that the next time.

So long =)

London haul/ current favorites, part one.

So, I was in London with my boyfriend a few weeks ago. I had never been there before, and was sooo exited! I obviously picked up a few makeup and skincare products, and wanted to show you guys what i bought! (This is not all i bought, but I don`t think I can fit everything into this post without it being too much.) So, here we go! Image

The first things are two BB creams and a concealer. The Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream is in the shade medium, and the oil free Garnier Miracle skin perfector in the shade fair. We don`t have these BB creams in Norway, so i was exited to see them in London. I don`t know what i was thinking when I chose these colors, however. One is too fair and one is too dark, so I mix them together for an OK result =) Can`t say witch one I like the most, because I only use them together, so… But I`m guessing they will be available here soon, so I might pick up a different shade then.

The concealer is the Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer that is sooo raved about on the beauty channels on YouTube. I just had to get one! Mine is in the shade 3, medium. I think it is very creamy, has good coverage, and it doesn`t crease on me. I like it, and will probably buy another one the next time I come across one. (Don`t think we have it in Norway..)

I was super exited to see the Real Tecniques stippling brush in Boots, as I had heard so many great things about it. It was all true. I love it with my powder blushes, and use it every day. I regret not picking up more, and will do so the next time I see one. Let me know if you know any good websites that sell it! The other brush is not from London, but from the E.L.F website. It is the Studio line powder brush. It is exelent with liquid foundation, and with bronzers! I haven`t tried it with anything else, but I do love it for the products I use it with. It is supersoft, and the price is unbeatable!

For a few moths I have been eyeing the Biotherm Aquasource Nuit, and I finally picked this up at the airport on my way home from London. I LOVE it! It is so hydrating without making my skin oily. (I have pretty oily, dehydrated skin.) I use this every night, and I definitely can see a difference. My skin looks and feels more plumped, and healthier. I also love the smell, and look forward to applying it every night.

We have all heard so many wonderful things about the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, and when I saw it I could not resist the temptation. I have not used it that many times yet, but so far I can honestly say I don`t get what the hype is all about… It`s not that I don`t like it, I just don`t see any real difference in my skin. The smell is…different. Not good, not bad, just…toothpasty. I like the feel when I spray it on. I like the glass bottle. I like the idea. Other than that, I don`t know. Maybe I haven`t used it enough. I will up the use of my Beauty Elixir, and get back to you. I got it from feelunique.com. (Edit; I`ve now used it for a few months, and find it breaks me out if I use it too much. Once a day is fine, but more than that really irritates and aggravates my skin.)

And then there is the St.Ives Apricot scrub. It`s a good scrub, not much else to say. It is really cheap, it feels good, me like! I haven`t seen this in Norway either, so I bought a couple of this. I now have a stash. (Two is a stash, right?)

I`ll post more stuff from my trip to London soon =)

Also, summer has come to Norway as well, and I just have to post a couple of pictures of this rare event…
