Yes, Black Friday was 2 weeks ago but life gets in the way and it took some time for my things to arrive. I have returned most of the things that were impulse purchases mainly clothing. Today I'm sharing the items that I was eyeing up prior to the big sales.
I have been looking at this palette for ages and I have been wanting to try the formula of these. It seems like every blogger has some sort of Zoeva goodies in their collection and now they are mine too. Beautybay had 20% off and I knew that this was the chance to try it without feeling too guilty since I do have a lot of eyeshadow palettes in my collection. This palette has the most beautiful browns and purples which is currently my favourite eyeshadows to wear. I am excited to try it out and you will be seeing a lot more of this over on my Instagram and here.ZOEVA NUDE SPECTRUM BLUSH PALETTE | £15
My blush category is quite neglected since I don't like blush that much but since having my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder that has changed. When I wear blushes which I do every day now to add colour to my cheeks I opt for a mauvy, brown and dusty tones and this nude palette is perfect to start with. If you didn't know I love having palettes over single products since I have the urge to depot everything and put it into one palette. My next palette will probably be a highlighter one.JOUER POWDER HIGHLIGHT in CITRINE | £19
If you watch a lot of Youtube like I do you know that everyone was raving about this highlighter and I bit the bullet and purchased it since it did also have 20% off. This was in my basket for ages and I do think that £19 is expensive for a highlight but time will tell and I can't wait to use it. The colour CItrine is a shimmering gold which I don't exactly have in my collection. (Look at me trying to justify my purchases haha)CLINIQUE MOISTURE SURGE | £34
I knew it was time to pick up a new moisturiser since my skin is getting 'used to' my current one and is not working as well as it used to. I have been eyeing up this for a while and when I received an email from Boots saying I can get this for £15 I bought it online immediately. It is still sitting on my 'to use' pile but I don't want to be using too many new skincare products at the same time.THE BODY SHOP HIMALAYAN CHARCOAL PURIFYING GLOW MASK | £17
I am a huge fan of face masks, I had an obsession with sheet masks and now its an obsession with masks within a bottle. I do love using charcoal masks on my skin since I do break out quite often and charcoal helps clear your skin up. I have seen great reviews about this and it was 40% off.SMASHBOX TRAVEL PRIMER SET | £19.50
how awesome are the Christmas gift sets? It always allows me to try new products. I picked this up in when I was selecting presents that were part of the 3 for 2 offer. Although it wasn't on the offer when you spent £50 or more you received £10 in Boots points which I think is amazing. This travel set was £19 and contains the Primer Water, Pore Minimising Primer and  Hydrating Foundation Primer.
Now some people are going to hate these, but I love them. They had 20% off and I knew they had to be mine. I was on the constant lookout for mules that had a little height since my black ones are very flat and these are perfect since it covers my toes. They have a faux suede material and an acrylic heel. it's so simplistic and elegant.

That is all for my Black Friday purchases it super late but what did you pick up?

I hope you've enjoyed this post!

Until next time!

  1. The Zoeva blush palette looks gorgeous! I ended up getting one of the ABH Blush Trio's for £15 and then I got the Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts Palette.

  2. The Cocoa blend palette looks incredible! The colours are super gorgeous, I'd love to get my hands on that! The Himalayan Charcoal mask is my absolute favourite mask of all time, I hope you love it as much as I do!
