October Beauty Haul

Whenever I go into the Marks & Spencer near where my nana lives, I always pop down to the beauty section to peruse the shelves. I also attended the Olympia Beauty show on Monday where they had a plethora of professional beauty and skincare brands. I picked up a few items at both places and thought I would share them with you! All of the items were under £20 when I purchased them but the items I bought at Olympia Beauty might have had a trade discount.

I finished my first bottle of this a while ago and I have only just got around to repurchasing it. This has become one of my favourite fragrances and I am so glad to have it back in my life. Although it is sold as a 'night' version of the original Rosie For Autograph scent but I actually prefer it and find that it works fine during the day. The fragrance contains rose and jasmine so it might be too much for some people but I like it. I bought the 30ml bottle that is only £14 which is quite a bargain!

I've been trying to get back into a proper skincare routine again as I have not been so great at sticking to my previous routine. My nana's M&S has recently started stocking some products from Pixi and I decided to get the Glow Tonic. I have seen so many people rave about Pixi Glow Tonic for years and chemical exfolitation is something I haven't tried before so I thought I would try Glow Tonic first as it is very gentle. 

I had heard of Kryolan before but through my internship I have learnt more about how popular it is with professional make-up artists so I was exciting to see some of the products at Olympia Beauty. Now as I am not a professional make-up artist, I did not want to spend my money on make-up that I would not use but I spotted these eyeshadow palettes and I knew I had to pick one up. I am a big fan of matte eyeshadows and this palette contained all matte eyeshadows and will be great to take on trips as it is compact, not too big and has a good selection of shades. 

O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Black Cherry Chutney
O.P.I is one of my favourite nail polish brands and at Olympia Beauty, they had literally every shade in every formula - it was quite mesmerising! I was drawn to this shade as I don't have a red or dark shade quite like this. It also has different packaging to the O.P.I polishes that I own so I think they might be going through a packaging re-design, although they did have quite a few in the original design so I'm not entirely sure. Although I did not have this when I posted my autumn polishes post, I might have to make a small exception for this colour!

O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Russian Navy
Now I've made a bit of mistake with this one. I already own it. Yes, I re-bought a nail polish accidently. At the time, I knew I had a shade similar but for some reason, I thought it was a different one. I am not sure whether to keep this or not as a back-up or to pass it on to a friend. It is a great nail polish and looks absolutely beautiful on the nail.

I am really excited to start using this products, some again and some for the first time. If you would like to see any further posts on any of these, please let me know in the comments. Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
