Last Mini Haul of Winter

Mini Haul UD Kiko Lush (2).JPG

The rather optimistic title already tells you I am ready for spring! It may be a little ways off yet, but I cannot wait for a fresh new look and nice spring shades. Just time for one last little haul this winter, aided with some of my birthday gift cards.

One of my best friends is getting married at the end of the summer – a great excuse for so many things like a new dress, new shoes, new foundation – so the hunt was on for a great setting spray to help me look my best throughout het big day. The infamous Urban Decay All Nighter has been in my wishlist for ages and this was just the excuse I needed to try it. Really looking forward to this one.

Mini Haul UD Kiko Lush (1)Kiko has recently opened a store near me, so I couldn’t resist a little trip inside. I have to be honest, they really seem to cater to a younger crowd with loud music and a really busy store. I did pick up a lovely nail polish on sale and their version of the beauty blender. Curious to see how that will compare to my beloved Real Techniques version.

Oh Lush! Such a tempting store, but I had made myself promise only to buy the one thing I truly needed: Daddy-O. This is a natural clarifying shampoo that I hope will help pick up my blonder highlights and get rid of the slight red tone that has been creeping into my hair lately.

I really hope this concludes my winter shopping, I absolutely cannot wait for sunshine, dresses, and a fresh look.

De nogal optimistische titel laat je al weten dat ik echt niet kan wachten op de lente! Het zal nog wel even duren, maar ik kan niet wachten op een frisse nieuwe look en mooie lentekleuren. Nog net tijd voor een laatste mini haul deze winter, geholpen door een aantal cadeaukaarten van mijn verjaardag.

Een van mijn beste vriendinnen gaat aan het einde van de zomer trouwen – een geweldig excuus voor zoveel zaken als een nieuwe jurk, nieuwe schoenen, nieuwe foundation – dus de jacht was geopend op een goede setting spray om mijn makeup de hele dag vlekkeloos te houden. De bekende Urban Decay All Nighter staat al een tijd op mijn verlanglijstje en dit was het perfecte excuus om hem te kopen. Kan niet wachten om deze te proberen.

Kiko heeft net een winkel bij mij in de buurt geopend, dus ik was wel erg benieuwd. Ik moet eerlijk zijn, ze lijken wel echt te mikken op een wat jongere doelgroep met luide muziek en een superdrukke winkel. Ik kocht wel een geweldige nagellak in de aanbieding en de Kiko versie van een beauty blender. Heel benieuwd hoe die het doet in vergelijking met mijn geliefde Real Techniques versie.

Oh Lush! Zo’n verleidelijke winkel, maar ik Β had mezelf belooft om alleen te kopen wat ik echt nodig had: Daddy-O. Deze natuurlijke verhelderende shampoo zal hopelijk helpen om mijn blondere highlights wat lichter te maken en de lichte rood tint weg te halen die de laatste tijd Β stiekum in mijn haar is gekropen.

Ik hoop echt dat dit de laatste winterse winkeltocht was, ik kan echt niet wachten op zonneschijn, jurken, een een frisse nieuwe look.

      Oh I love lush hair products! They were all I used before I started experimenting with other natural brands but I have never tried Daddy-O! Try their big shampoo, strange texture but amazing effects.

        I sure do, LOVE the beauty blender Anne but there really isn’t much difference in it and the RT. Thinking I’ll do a YouTube comparison of the two, though I’m pretty sure they’ll end up identical finishes, if anything I like the feel of the RT sponge a little better (I think lol) xxx

      Can’t wait to test that! I have high hopes, because it is a colab between urban decay and skindinavia and I love their setting sprays πŸ™‚

    It was 10C here over the weekend! I’m thinking Spring is SOON. πŸ˜›
    Oh you’re so lucky to have a Kiko close to you! I’d love to hear about the blending sponge. πŸ™‚

      Oh nice! Weather here has been impossible: sunny and warm one day, freezing and rainy the next.
      The only just opened, so it is quite nice though I have to say the stores are a bit aimed at teenagers…guess I am getting old, but I think the music was insanely loud

    Ooh loving your blog redesign! Interested in the UD skin spray, I’ve been wanting to try this (or one from Skindinavia who it’s actually made by) for ages – haven’t ever got on with MAC fix+ etc and the skindinavia ones are meant to be fab! xx

      Thanks!!I felt the blog needed a little update.
      My previous setting spray is the Skindinavia one and that was awesome. I ran out though, and UD is much easier to get so I thought I would try that.
      They are nothing like the Mac Fix…that is like a nice little mist whereas these things set your makeup properly.
