Mini Space NK Haul

You can imagine my excitement when I saw a tweet from Beth telling me I was lucky enough to win her giveaway of a £40 Space NK voucher - eee!! I've never been to Space NK before but have spent many hours browsing their site, wishing I was rich. I went into the Leeds store on Thursday with Georgina and Charlotte - fellow bloggers were definitely needed for this task. What to choose?! I wanted to buy things that I would never usually spend that much money on and ended up spending just £7.50 for two beautiful high-end products.

I was sure one of the items I would leave with would be a Nars lip pencil as I'd been eyeing them up online. I tried an orange-toned one on but it just didn't feel right - while I wanted to buy something special I also wanted to be able to wear it on a daily basis and I just knew I wouldn't reach for this particular Nars product every day as it was a bit too vibrant and in-your-face (although I was impressed with the quality and would love to own a Nars lip pencil one day!). I explained these thoughts to the assistant and she very helpfully suggested other options within a similar price range to the Nars pencils until I settled on this Laura Mercier lipstick in the shade 'Rose'. For me, its a my-lips-but-better colour which is perfect for everyday wear while also being a bit special as it is a high-end product and the only Laura Mercier product I own!

The second product I treated myself to was the By Terry Ombre Blackstar cream eyeshadow in the shade Misty Rock. Oh my. Firstly, the packaging. I feel like royalty with this in my make-up stash, it is beautiful! Secondly, the pigmentation. This eyeshadow is so pigmented but easy to blend and can be washed over the eye for a stunning shimmery one-colour look or built up to a smoky effect. The staying power of this eyeshadow is also brilliant, but at £28 it should be! There is a beautiful range of shades available and I'd definitely add a couple to your wishlist if I were you! I've just bought Mac's Woodwinked (blog post here!) so wanted to go for a different colour altogether as I have so many brown/gold shades in my collection already.
