London Beauty Shopping hauling!

London Beauty Shopping!

London beauty shopping selfridges fresh beauty mart topshop


fresh bioderma weleda embryolise homeoplasmine bare minerals bareskin








Made a bee line to Selfridges. Have never been to a Selfridges 'beauty hall' before......  It was beauty heaven!!
Could have happily spent all day in there.

bare minerals bareskin serum foundation


Honed in on Bare Minerals as on the 7th August their new foundation 'Bareskin' was released exclusive to Selfridges and Bare Mineral Boutiques. Desperately wanted to try it out.

This is a serum liquid foundation, a first for bare minerals, as all their previous foundations are all in mineral powder form. Has skincare benefits and is a build-able coverage.





 Wanted to get colour matched and get a demo of how to use.

I ended up being shade 01 bare porcelain. The bare minerals lady showed me how to apply and use the new brush.
It has a well in the middle and you put a drop or two into it. Then buff the foundation into your skin, building up the layers. Blog post to come soon....




fresh lipbalm

Next up  'FRESH'

Been after a fresh sugar lip-balm for ages! 
Came across this shop and I was extremely excited as the fresh lip-balms are difficult to get over here in the UK.  My sister bought me the gift set for my birthday. Contained a lip scrub, lip treatment, rose and tulip lip-balms. Review will be coming up shortly on the blog...



Topshop Oxford Street - Beauty Mart

This is an edited beauty section within topshop, selling the best performing products, as well as difficult to find foreign beauty items such as DHC, and french pharmacy items.

"All that's featured here is the cream of the crop - An expert edit of hero products from iconic beauty brands"

Beauty Mart topshop Oxford Street London UK

Could not believe how busy it was around Oxford street getting to Topshop! Eek!

So here is what I picked up:

weleda

Weleda - Skin Food. A natural skin cream to nourish dry and dehydrated skin. Great for use on hands and elbows or any dry rough patches.


Weleda - Aknedoron. A treatment lotion containing essential oils to treat and help rid of spots. No harsh chemicals 




Homeoplasmine UK french pharmacy


Homeoplasmine - This multi purpose balm soothes irritated chapped lips. Goes on as a shiny balm and dries matte. Similar to Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream without the price tag or scent. 



Embryolisse Concentrate cult make-up artist secret





Embryolisse Concentrate - This french cult classic, is a soothing moisturiser that makes a great primer base for foundation as well as a lovely hydrating cream. Found in make-up artists kits, am very intrigued to try this one out!












Pharmacy find!

Found a little chemist on Baker Street that stocked Bioderma as well as other french pharmacy items....



 So I picked up the new Arnica cream Cicabio which came in handy as my overnight bag was far too heavy and it helped to soothe my sore, bruised shoulders. Need to learn to travel light or bring less make-up!!







Mac pro store greenwich


MAC Greenwich
Love the look of this pro store, it is so unique with its writing on the windows. 

Picked up the vanilla pigment have wanted this for so long, chose the mini size as can't see myself using all of the big version. Can't wait to experiment with this!!

So that's it, my little beauty haul around London. I will be reviewing the items individually and of course letting you know my thoughts!
