So, I picked up a few new things =) Part 2.

Here are a few more things I got on my trip abroad =)

First and most amazingly it`s the Bourjois Magic Nail polish remover. This is an AMAZING product! I had heard so many wonderful things about this one, but I don`t think we have it in Norway. At least I haven`t seen it anywhere… So I had to pick up a couple when I found it in Palma. And I put it to the test with a red nail polish. I usually look like I have been eating strawberries after removing red polish, with pink fingertips. I had a lot of faith in this pink pot, but I was really surprised when my fingers came out looking perfect after just a couple of seconds in this thing! Wow! I soooo recommend this! It will save me…well…minutes and minutes! =)

Next up is my La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing protecting skincare. I got this to use it after long days in the sun. I have quite a few moisturizers, but none of them are just soothing. They all do something in the lines of resurfacing or treating blemishes. I`m super happy with this one, as it really just soothes and calms the skin. I think this is one I`ll always have in my skincare regime, as I feel it`s really good for my skin. I`m beginning to really love this brand! I continue to be pleasantly surprised by it =)

Then there`s the Korres Yoghurt moisturizing mask for normal to combination skin. I had actually only heard about this mask once, but when I saw it at the airport on my way home I thought I`d get it, as it wasn`t that expensive. (It`s only 16 ml/ 0,54 fl.oz though…) I tried it the same night, after a good and much needed scrub. It`s only supposed to be left on for 15 minutes, but I actually just kept it on. (After 15 minutes there wash`t really anything to rinse away anyway.) Maybe I put on too thin of a layer, I don`t know. My skin loved this mask! It felt so good, and very natural. A little goes a long way as well, and it`s quite liquidi, so I thin this little tube will last a while. I look forward to trying more of their products in the future!

The Biotherm lip balm is actually the one thing I didn`t like out of the things I bought. I tastes so bad! It kinda tastes like body lotion or something. I don`t care if it does great things, you just can`t make a lip balm taste bad. End of story. Blah.

The lipstick in the picture is Lancome Rouge in Love, shade 146B. It`s a bright coral, great for summer. This is actually my first high-end lipstick, and I`m really happy with it. I don`t have all that many lipsticks, and the ones I have are either really “wearable” pinks or bright reds. I really wanted something a bit different for summer, and one that didn`t have any glitters or shimmer at all. This one was perfect! (Although, it of course is not the most flattering of colors when it comes to your teeth. The do look a bit yellow…) Still, very happy with this one!

I always buy a new perfume when I travel, and this time it was the Jimmy Choo eau de toilette. I actually kind of regret not getting the eau de parfum, but oh well… I love it. It`s nice. (Said in a Borat manner.)

Yesterday I mentioned some shoes that I got. Here they are! I got them at Zara, and I love them! I haven`t worn them yet, that`s why I even let them up on my bathroom sink area. Aren`t they just glorious?! 

So, I think that`s kinda it for this time. Hope you liked looking at my new stuff =) I`d really like it if you left a comment, saying if you liked these two posts or not. Still kinda new to this blogging, and it takes me forever to write a post, so it would be nice to hear what you think =)

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 =)
