Now I'm meant to be on a spending ban but as you can see from the title, it's not really working. I think I read so many reviews of different products and then convince myself that I really need them in my life. I have been good to a certain extent, I stopped myself from buying the Latest in Beauty Glamour Box, I showed some online restraint but I work in a large shopping centre so when I get there a bit early, I always end up going for a browse. And it's just so easy to buy when it's right in front of you. I thought you might like to see what I've picked up recently.
I recently found out that one of the girls I work with is an Avon Rep. For those who don't know what Avon is, it's basically a company who sell beauty, health and cosmetic products online and through representatives. Any one can become a representative and sell Avon products through brochures, I think the Reps receive an amount of commission depending on their sales. So having never tried any Avon product, I thought I would just stock up on a few items that I was running out of. I picked up the Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, Moroccan Oil is meant to moisturise your hair leaving it smooth and silky but doesn't leave a build up or make it greasy. I really look forward to trying these and seeing if they are any good. I've been using a curl heat protector spray instead of a straightening heat protector, so I was in desperate need for a new one.
MUA Pistachio Ice Cream just jumped out at me, it's a lovely mint green and I know there's been much debate over whether MUA have copied Essie, I think they have with the packaging but it's not going to stop me buying their products and I think they are each aiming at a different market.
I had a No7 voucher burning a hole in my pocket again, every time I get rid of one, they give me another and I can't not use it. I've never used bronzing pearls before, I tend to just stick to a pressed powder bronzer, but I think the colour might be nice for summer.
I also had a voucher for M&S Beauty, so again had to spend it! I've used the primer before and I am really impressed by it. I want to try Benefit Porefessional but this is the second time I've bought it, it's a tiny tube but seems to last ages. I'm wanting to see how well the Autograph Lip Crayon compares with the No7 and the Rimmel Lip Crayons. I picked this up in Apricot, which is a lovely orange coral with a hint of shimmer running through. After trying the Apivita Green Clay Mask, I couldn't wait to pick up another type of mask.
Have you bought any of these recently? How do you stick to a spending ban?
