    I have painted my nails last week with Essie - At the Helm, a lovely red-orange colour. I take them off today and will probably repaint tomorrow.
    Also uu'ed today a satchet of Collistar Talasso Body Scrub. This came with LF beauty box and it is nice but not sure it is worth the price tag. I prefer to use a brush nowadays anyway so WNB the full size.

    I have listed few beauty items on various sale but I think due to summer, it is quiet. I hope i will be able to sell few bits and pieces as I've accumulated a massive number of trial sizes/samples mostly thanks to LF monthly beauty boxes and I cannot use them fast enough.

    I bought 2 x Elvive Extraordinary Oil Shampoo today as they were half price at Boots.
    Also benefited from No7 offer currently running - bought 2 sculpting No7 blenders and got a free Nude to Night Beauty Palette. RRP £25. I am likely to gift this to someone or sell it though.

    That Essie colour looks gorgeous however I bought one of theirs last year called Eclair my Love which is very similar.

    I need to repaint my nails today. Am currently wearing OPI Made It To the seventh Hill but don’t like how it looks in daylight. Will see if Emma wants it or sell it.

    Bought a bottle each of Mane and Tail shampoo and conditioner on Friday as they were on offer and my bottles are getting light.
    Back for the No Buying Toiletries challenge. I pledge to only buy when I run out of a product that is not already in my stash no matter what wonderful emails land in in my Inbox or threads I read on MSE re: glitches!

    Does anyone know what happened to Clarins Boosters? I have "re-discoverd" my Detox Booster recently and it made a huge difference to my skin but it is no longer available to purchase :(

    UU

    Superdrug Simply Pure Spot Clearing Moisturising Cream 75ml - Good value and really worked. Got another Superdrug facial moisturiser on the go now!

    Dr Organic Pomegranate Shampoo 265ml - Loved this shampoo and it foamed up quite well so one bottle lasted quite a while. Replaced with a bottle of Organic Surge from the stash.

    Two UUs this evening:

    Pyunkang Yul Oil sample 1.5ml WPNB. I don't really like oils so I used this on my feet before covering them in lotion.

    Pyunkang Yul Balancing Gel sample 1.5ml WPNB. This was very sticky. I don't see the purpose of this.

    Emma has had a pre-return to Uni declutter of eyeshadow palettes so I have inherited:-


    Urban Decay Naked Basics - one heavily used shadow (pannage)
    Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette
    Too Faced Love palette (I think it's called)


    and an Anastasia Beverley Hills contour palette from which two pans have been removed.


    Will see how I get on with these. If I don't love them I will see if I can pass them on to someone.


    I have hit pan on another blush : NARS Orgasm from the Killing Me Softly palette. I have been using the Albatross highlighter contained in this palette and think I'm near to hitting pan. I had pulled out a NYX blush called Wanderlust which isn't showing up too well on my tanned skin so have been topping it up with Orgasm. Saw the tiniest glint of pan this morning so will keep this in rotation to try and use up.
