After a few rounds in the store, I picked up two bits. Now, wasn't too keen on all the new items like bath bombs and bubble bars. I prefer the more standard Lush scents, that scent when you walk into the lush store, or right past it. All the new items smelt very chemical and powdery so I didn't see a point of getting any even though they looked amazing!

 Mask of Magnanimity 125g £5.50
This is a face and body mask that is supposed to be good for spots/acne and teenage skin. This smells very peppermint-y and strong so make sure you smell it before you buy it!
You leave this on for 5 to 10 minutes (till it dries up) then you can rinse it off with warm water but also you have the chance to exfoliate by swirling the mask off with water with the little beads/chunks inside.
This just gets your skin feeling smooth but I wouldn't say this changes the appearance of your skin dramatically since you'd have to use it frequently to see any changes in your skin.

Soft Coeur Massage Bar £4.95
Everyone seems to love the massage bars from Lush so I picked this one up that smells like chocolate and it think that's some sort of chocolate extract on the corner of the bar.
I like to use this after I have a bath or a shower and it really just melts at your body temperature then you just massage that in all over.

Have you visited the new Lush Store?

I recently found this tester of the new L'Oreal Shampoo in an Elle Magazine and decided I'd give it a try and maybe review it! It's really inconvenient that they didn't put a Conditioner tester there too, when in my opinion the conditioner is the 'cherry on top' to really get the 'Luminous' hair they claimed that it achieves.
But nevertheless I generally think this is a good shampoo for giving your hair a little sheen and gloss boost. I didn't see intense differences but I think I will buy the full bottle and see further difference (if there are any).
If you've tried this shampoo, tell me what you think of it!

So as a little mid-week blog post, I'd like to leave this here for the appreciation of Pret for sending me 6 packs (for free) of dried mangos. And I have a huge love for dried mangos but no others can compare to these!

The reason I got sent these, is because I tweeted Pret saying 'I need an endless supply of @pret dried mangos', and they replied saying 'We can't promise you an endless supply but you can message us for a little surprise', so then I messaged them and I got sent a few packs of delicious mangos.
(that's roughly what I said etc, the tweets were from a while back!)

I have a big love for dried mangos because they are a great option for snacking instead of having chocolate. And also by far, these are the best ones. Go give them a try.

Have you tried the Pret Dried Mangos?

Guess who got more beauty products?
So as you can guess by the title, I went to Kiko, Lush and Boots and I got these three products.
This is an array of successful purchases, alright and not so good so keep on reading to find out which of these products I enjoyed most..
Now when I say I love this eyeshadow, I mean it. This is my first champagne individual eyeshadow I picked up for only £2.80 (previously costing around £5). I wear this every single day to school and on weekends.

This is the Kiko eye shadow in the shade '202' and its one of their infinity eye shadows.
They all have great pigmentation, from all the swatches I had going on, on my hand.

This is just a perfect shade of champagne goodness. It brightens up the eye and you can create beautiful eye make up with this. I like to play around with my crease colour with different shades of brown and taupe because it suits any kind of shade.
If you do see this in the store, don't be put off by intense shimmer going on, the lighting in store makes it twice as shimmery than it really is.
They have really nice pigmentation too which is always great, but they blend in effortlessly with a crease colour.
If you buy the eye shadows separately, you wont really need to worry about your eye shadows drying out because they do come with a plastic lid to keep it safe however it can easily get lost.
That's why, guess what.. you need to buy a Clics system pot for your eye shadow, you can also buy a quad palette for these too if you find more eye shadows that you like. The single palette costs around £3, correct me if I'm wrong though because I don't really remember.

Going on to my least favourite product, which I was most exited to try was the L'Oreal True Match foundation because of its new packaging and I'm guessing new formula..
I will be doing a comparing blog post about these two foundations and because of the amount of things I want to say about these two products so I wont go into much detail right now.
So what I will say about this is, its not suitable for people with oily skin, I also find that you need a primer for this because it does give you smile lines unfortunately. The actual texture of the foundation is very satin and smooth and goes on very smoothly. 

Going on to the more bright side, I also got this Lush Toner Water which you spray on you freshly washed face before or after makeup. I usually use this (if I actually remember to do so) before my makeup so freshen up my skin and also helps to wake you up. 

This product claims to be a go-to beauty item for the skin emergencies e.g. spot prone or oil skin. I don't find that it has improved my skin immensely but for the first time that I used it, I found that my skin worked really well with the tea tree and antiseptic ingredients that it has to make spots less visible or tone down the redress.
What is your most successful beauty purchase that you've made?

Products Mentioned:

Throughout AW last year, I opted for a berry toned lipstick at every lipstick counter and when I bought this Top Shop lipstick, it was the only thing I wore. It became a bit boring so a few months ago I bought the famous Kate Moss 107 lipstick (even though I feel like I look strange with it, I still love it)
(L to R): 'Inhibition', '107'
Both lipsticks are very pigmented however, the Topshop one definitely needs a lip liner which I'm still on a hunt for since it just fades away after a few hours.

Nevertheless these are my two favourite Autumn/Winter shades in a short post!
