I Bought a Few Things: Smashbox, YSL, Accessorize

I popped over to the Milton Keynes Centre and sought out the nearest Boots,
1. Because I'm obsessed with Boots.
2. Because I needed the Smashbox Contour Sticks in my life.
3. Because I had a Double Advantage Card points voucher.
4. Because I'm obsessed with Boots.
Smashbox Step by Step Contour Stick Trio | £35 | Link |
I was swift with my first item, I swatched the contour shade on the back of my hand, it blended like a dream, I did that face of sheer delight, paraded my hand in front of my boyfriend, he wasn't arsed, I put it on my lap (I was in a wheelchair) and continued shopping. Finally, the contour trio was to be mine, I'd lusted after them since watching Jaclyn Hill use them in a video AGES ago.
Smashbox Primer Water | £20 | Link |
Then I sprayed myself with the Smashbox Primer Water  and I didn't even wait for my face to dry, I decided I was having that too.
YSL Volupte Tint-in-Oil Lip Tint | £23.50 | Link |
Next we went to the YSL counter but there was nobody there to answer my questions, (I like to discuss make up with anyone who will listen) so I swatched the new YSL Tint-in-Oil's in every colour and just stared at my hand. They felt amazing but I had no idea how much they cost and had told myself that if they were extortionate, I wouldn't be bothering. So, I paid for my Smashbox items and R2-D2 USB pen for my boyfriend and we left.
Then we went to Accessorize and I bought three rings. Each were £10 and sterling silver. I'd wanted a midi-ring for a while but kept forgetting about it whenever I was out shopping, mainly due to make-up-brain taking over. I finally found one that I liked and the assistant wrapped them up in cute little parcels.
As I had never been to the Centre before, I had no idea where anything was, and since Nars, Mac and Urban Decay were all in random department stores, I didn't know where to start. We went to John Lewis and I reacquainted myself with the YSL Tint-in-Oil's, swatching them again, loving them a little bit more. The assistant was busy doing another customers make up and I couldn't be bothered waiting so we left. I wasn't feeling great and one of the tyres on the wheelchair was going down, making it difficult for my boyfriend to push so we decided to head off home...but on the way out, I saw Boots and I couldn't leave without them YSL products.

Can we just take a second to appreciate how beautiful the YSL packaging is please?
The lady on the YSL counter was a delight. She dropped me some compliments, saying I had beautiful porcelain skin and how lovely a couple the boy and I were, which went down well.
I'd heard a lot of great things about these lip tints on YouTube, LolaLynn and KathleenLights raved about them. The colour is very sheer but they are packed with essential oils (Apricot Kernal oil, Passion Flower oil, Macadamia oil, Jojoba Seed oil and Coriander fruit oil) that help nourish the lips. They feel so luxurious and expensive and I'd expect them to at £23.50 a pop. They're not at all sticky, are shiny like a gloss, have the perfect sized applicator, smell absolutely gorgeous and they leave a slight tint to the lips. The longevity isn't incredible but after wearing them for a few hours my lips go from a horrible chapped mess to ultra-soft and kissable. I've worn them on their own (they're great for 'no make up' make up days) and on top of lipstick. I just love them.
You need to remember that these are not lipsticks or glosses, they're almost like a tinted moisturiser for your lips. And the packaging is to die for! How are these my first YSL products? I need more.
5 - Cherry My Cherie
6 - Peach Me Love
I'm already eyeing up the next colours I want, 3 - Undress Me and 4 - I Rose You.
Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

  3. I love going to Milton Keynes! I have to go there for Urban Decay because our local Arndale doesn't stock their products, and I love Urban Decay! The Accessorize rings are really lovely :)
