So it's been a while since I last posted anything, but I have been sooooo busy with my Live Project at uni, but finally after far too much stress it is handed in, now only a presentation and another report to go. Our project report ended up being 117 pages long, 19000 words and £76 worth of printer credit between three of us.
My Mum and Dad knew how stressed I was with all of my uni work and after a panic text to them complaining about my laptop not working, they came across to Edinburgh to see me the next day. We looked at new laptops but I concluded that my current one was sufficient enough and I couldn't justify my parents buying me a new one (yet).
Instead of a new laptop, mummy treated me to some new makeup, at which I can't complain. We went to Debenhams on Princes Street to look at all the nice products and ended up at the Urban Decay stand. I have been dying for a Naked palette for so long, but my student budget has not allowed me to purchase one sadly. We chatted to Kate who was working at the stand and admired the new 'Electric Pressed Powder Palette'. The colours are so amazingly bright, I thought I could never wear them but Kate offered to try them out on me to show me how wearable they are. I chose to use the pinks and purples and it looked amazing on, however I'd need to practice my technique before attempting to use this palette. Safe to say I had the best eye-makeup out of everyone at the library later that day haha.
I chose the Naked 3 palette (£37), I liked the colours in it, it has more pink and rose gold colours in it than the other Naked palettes and that's what swung it for me. I also picked up a trio of eyeliners, the 'Triple Threat Travel Pencil Set' (£10) which has the colours; Smoke, Perversion and Sabbath. At Debenhams they currently have a beauty event with £10 off, in store, (10% online) with any 2 'award winning' beauty or fragrance purchases, that's why I got the eyeliner set FREE. I chose a lipgloss to go with my new palette and just as a change from lipstick and as I don't have any nice lipgloss since I finished my favourite MAC one. I went for the 'Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss' in 'Nooner' (£14), it's a very neutral shade which means I can wear it with a smoky eye and not look too much, and the gloss is part balm making it hydrating and a pleasure to wear.
All together I got the 3 products for an astounding £30, thanks to the beauty event and my mum's beauty points and money off coupons she collected from previous purchases. Basically bargain of the century, that's £61 worth of makeup and we paid less than half.

Thanks Momma Bear.
