Leeds Haul

Haul Origins Lush Body Shop Illamasqua

I’ve been back from Leeds for less than an hour, and I thought I would share my purchases with you all. I went up on Friday to see Nik as he is working there for a month, so I am now forever waiting for the weekend to come. He was working Saturday so I had a few hours to myself to explore the shops.

On Jayne’s recommendation the first place I headed was the Victorian quarter which has some has some gorgeous boutiques, and made a great change to walking through yet another cookie cutter shopping centre. I took Nik back there today and even managed to get him to treat himself to some Neal's Yard skincare (my shopping habits are clearly rubbing off on him)I was very happy to find a Space NK and Nik treated me to a full size Caudalie Beauty Elixir (which I have just ran out of, you can see my review here) and a new set of Shu Uemura Lash Curlers, as mine were far from at their best. The lady was lovely enough to put some Ren/Nars samples in my bag so I look forward to trying those out.

I also picked up a the Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation from Harvey Nichols, as my skin is a bit better and I wanted something light to wear for daytime.  I repurchased Illamasqua’s Medium Pencil in Vow (a gorgeous nude for the waterline) and got the Cream Blusher in Lies which looks beautiful.

I also got a Orgins cleanser to use in the morning and some handbag essentials from the Body Shop.

If there is anything you would like to see reviews/swatches of let me know and I will try to get to them first!
