Haul of my Dreams & FOTD!

I met up with some friends for lunch today and we also got sidetracked into "some" shops. After
several clothing shops later, I was having withdrawel symtoms over make up! I have been wanting this Illamasqua liquid metal in Soltice from the sirens collection for ages now, but it's always been out of stock!!! I wanted it so badly that I have apparently been talking about it in my sleep :)

Oh yes! Selfridges in London had this baby in stock! I nearly hugged the MA out of joy, I was just so overwhelmed!


That's right..

Take a deep breath, close your eyes and open them again. It actually looks like gold metal. It's a very highly pigmented cream eyeshadow, highlighter and lip product. It's one to add to your wish list!

If you haven't seen Pixiwoo use this on YT, check it here! Do you dream about make up? If your reading this.. you probably do :)
I also want the Illamasqua cream blush in Rude too, but guess what that's out of stock too! However, it's permanent so I wont panic! :) It's a beautiful peach colour and has to be mine! It's like a cream formulation of Nars Gina if that helps!

FOTD

Face: BB tinted moisturiser, Boing concealer. Barry M bronzer.
Cheeks: Illamasqua cream blush in "Rude"
Eyes: Illamasqua liquid metal - solstice. Mac blacktrack fluidline on upper lashline. Lash stiletto & telescopic explosion mascara. YSL black eyeliner - which I hate btw always leaks!
Lips: Illamasqua cream blush "Rude" and Illamasqua liquid metal Solstice dabbed on lips.

I also got this gorgeous cotton dress from Urban Outfitters... that shop is becoming an obsession! I managed to snap this up for only £24.99 as it was on sale! I love the colour, I think it will work well with my new darker hair! My favourite colour to wear is coral and this mermaid green.



Look at the beautiful detailing...



Did you get anything on this glorious Saturday?

Lola said...

do you know if solstice is like nars cream blush in gold member?

Gaby said...

That eyeshadow looks amazing! & your dress... sooo pretty ^^

bubblegarm said...

Thank u:)

@lola solstice is much more pigmented and vivid than gold member :)

bubblegarm said...

@lola and it's more of a true gold, gold member is more of a yellow gold. X

Maddy said...

QUESTION: I'm going to try the Frankinsence Nourishing Cream from Neal's Yard. It's apparently in new packaging and now comes in 60g. How many months would you say that would last me? I know that you use their creams. Do you use this one? THANKS!!!! xoxo

Maddy said...

Oh AND do you use their Lavender Sunscreen - if so, how long does THAT last you? Neal's Yard is so much more expensive, and hard to find, in Canada! ARGH THANKS!!

bubblegarm said...

@maddy I really don't like the frankincense cream that much :( don't know how long of will last! My jasmine enriching one lasts just over a month if that helps! X

Maddy said...

why don't you like it?

Meya said...

i love that gold color! really pretty =]]

bubblegarm said...

@maddy it just doesnt do anything for me :( i used it on my hands once, and it went red and blotchy, i must be irratable towards it! x

Maddy said...

Oh gotcha! So they were all out of the cream i wanted so I got the jasmine enriched cream and it feels fantastic. So far I put it on last night and this morning, and it's very moisturizing but not greasy. I like it. I'm still going to get the other cream and wear it as a night cream. and Ill wear the jasmine daytime. I actually really like the scent. Some people find it overpowering but I like it! :)

Mevish said...

im a fashion addict n all that top is so cute !

bubblegarm said...

@maddy yey! the jasmine enriching is amazing :) im so glad u got it and like it! :) x
