Space NK recently had one of their gift with purchase offers that I believe are just too good to miss. A lot of the stuff that I bought have been on my wish list for a while including the by Terry powder and the two Stila eyeliners.
Their offer was that if you spent £150 you got a gift bag with contents worth £260 (or something like that) so in my eyes I couldn't really pass if off.
You'd think that spending £150 was really expensive, and I would too if I haven't had just received my student loan. But like I said, most of the things I'd had on my wish list for a while so that justifies things right? ;)
So what did I purchase from Space NK?
I bought: Bumble and Bumble thickening Creme Contour, Nars lipstick in Red Lizard, Michael Van Clarke 3''' more inches, Stila One Step, by Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-powder and two Stila Stay All Day eyeliners in dark brown and black.
1/ By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-powder (£41 here): this single product was the one I was most looking forward to as I've wanted it for the longest. It's a colourless powder that minimise wrinkles, fine lines and pores leaving a matte finish. I apply it with a small brush around my eyes and nose. You may think that £41 is a lot for just a powder but you literally only need the smallest amount so this product could easily last a good few years.
2/ Stila Stay All Day eyeliner in Black and Dark Brown (£13 each here): I love these eyeliners as they're so easy to use meaning you don't need the steadiest hand to achieve a perfect line. I wouldn't say that they are waterproof as such, however they do last all day and dry almost instantly.
3/ Bumble and Bumble thickening creme contour (£21.50 here): this is like a texturising paste that I apply to the ends of my hair to add a little bit of texture. I also apply it to the mid-sections when I have my hair curled or waved as it adds loads of volume and keeps the style for longer.
4/ Nars lipstick in Red Lizard (£18.50 here): although it doesn't look it in the picture, I assure you it is a dark red. It's the most perfect shade for autumn I think, and being a fan of red lipsticks I just knew I had to have it. It leaves a satin finish, and lasts as long as my MAC lipsticks do.
5/ Michael Van Clarke 3''' more inches (£29 here): I am always on a mission to grow my hair and I won't stop until I have it the length that I'm after. I decided to pick up this pre wash treatment as I usually just stick to oils and masks to help my hair growth. I haven't used this yet but hopefully it will do the price tag some justice and actually give me 3 more inches.
6/ Stila One Step Correct (£24 here): this is actually a repurchase. I've been buying this for about two years now and I don't know why I don't rave about it. It corrects everything in an instant as works great as a primer under make up too. If you have redness, sallow undertones or dull skin then this beauty will fix it all as well as minimising pores, lines and even controlling oil!
And this is the contents of the gift bag. As you can see there is a wide selection of products that I am very eager to try.
I love GWP, it feels like Christmas!
