SelfridgesBeautyHaul4SelfridgesBeautyHaul3Although it is most known for its historical landmarks, incredible architecture, and ever rainy weather, London has earned its place on my blog due to Selfridges: the largest and most luxurious department store I have ever experienced. I splurged on three beauty products that have been at the top of my wishlist for quite a while…
SelfridgesHaulSummerFridaysJetLagMaskSelfridgesHaulSummerFridaysJetLagMask2Better late than never with the famous Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask! After glimpsing this photogenic skin care product on nearly every Instagram account I follow yet somehow not seeing even one negative review, I decided this would be worth the price tag. I’ve only used this a few times — including on the crazy long flight back home — and I have already started saving for another tube! I wish I tried this sooner. The brand’s co-founders, Marianna and Lauren, actually celebrated its launch in the UK at Selfridges the day before I visited, which made this purchase extra special.SelfridgesHaulMakeupWhirlLipLinerSelfridgesHaulMacWhirlLipLinerI have been reaching for lip liners quite frequently these past few weeks and after doing a little research on specific shades, I decided to purchase MAC Lip Pencil in ‘Whirl’ — an absolutely lovely neutral mauve. It pairs perfectly with all of my most worn lipsticks, lasts ages, and is not drying. It also complements my tan skin really well.SelfridgesHaulCharlotteTilburyPillowTalkeyeshadowThe third and final item I purchased at Selfridges was the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Pillow Talk. The entire ‘Pillow Talk’ collection looks drop dead gorgeous and my self-control disappears whenever I am within ten feet of a rose gold anything, so I managed to briefly ignore the unfortunate price tag. I have not used this yet because I still need to photograph it for an upcoming in-depth review but I am so excited. I have never anything owned anything from Charlotte Tilbury before but I find the brand and its namesake enchanting. Plus, where better to make my first purchase than in England?
