I'm moving so I'm having a Blog Sale - Updated

I will be moving apartments (again) soon so I've decided to have a bit of a clear out.  Some items are back-ups so they are brand new, others are slightly used but I don't want to throw them out because it seems like a bit of a waste.  Please have a look and leave a comment below / send me an email if you're interested.  The sale is limited to UK and Europe at the moment.

Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Initiale #72

Recently I have tried to cut down on my beauty purchases, hence the lack of posts in August (but that is also due to time issues).  Instead of buying almost everything that looked good/interesting, I have been editing my wishlist down to the essential "must-buys" from each collection (I skipped the entire Dior Autumn collection).

At first I thought I had to have Lumiere d'Artifices, the stripey sequin palette from the Chanel Autumn 2012 collection.  But after looking at swatch photos and trying it in store, it's a big no for me - the colour just doesn't show up on me.  Then I thought is it absolutely necessary to buy Rose Initiale, another pink blush?

Chanel Le Vernis in Frenzy #559

This post is a little late but I hope it will be useful to my London readers.  I still find it really irritating that the UK gets every seasonal makeup behind the rest of the world - but hopefully the pop-up boutique at Covent Garden makes it a bit better for Chanel lovers.  The autumn collection is now in store at the pop-up before all the other counters (they will have the autumn collection on the 24th I believe).

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Carina #06

This autumn season is the season of new high end liquid lipstick launches - Guerlain, Shiseido and MUFE have all released liquid lipsticks.  It was a nice surprise to see Stila with their own version with the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick.

This range has 10 shades and includes a few nude neutral shades but the vibrant bright shades definitely dominate.  I don't associate Stila with bright vibrant lip colours (I tend to think of very natural barely there lip glazes when I think Stila) so I found this quite refreshing.
