Lipstick in Posy Pink & lip liner in Nude Fair: both Smashbox
Just a few little bits that I’ve treated myself to lately – courtesy of recent sales on my Depop.
I’d had my eye on this gorgeous French Connection cross-body bag for a little while and so I was super excited when it went on sale, selling in stores for £55 instead of £79. Excited but still unwilling to pay more than half price (I like a bargain, okay!) … so I did a little internet search and managed to snap up this beauty for just £40 – thanks Amazon! I absolutely love it and have already worn it a few times; it’s the perfect size to take on a night out or just those days when you don’t want to lug a big shoulder bag around (something I’m guilty of 6 days out of 7). I love the moc-croc effect and the silver hardware on the edges: simply stunning.
I picked up these Smashbox goodies at The Cosmetics Company Store in a designer outlet near me after recently becoming a little obsessed with lip liner and its magical effects on my not-so-plump lips (I’m a little late to the party, I know). I’ve always been a bit sceptical because unless it’s applied really carefully, it can make you look like (to put it nicely) a clown (I’ve had the misfortune of witnessing such cases) – so not ideal. But I’ve now discovered the magic of buying lipsticks with their accompanying liner and I love the effect – subtly plumper and quite natural-looking too. Now, I’ll never have lips to rival Kylie Jenner’s but a girl can try, right?
Love, Beth xo.
