My London Haul

Here is a comprehensive view of the massive shopping I did while I was in London. I hope you enjoy as this post will be picture heavy.
First I will re-visit my Illamasqua Flagship store haul. I could have lived in this store.  The sales girl that was helping me was c'est magnifique!! I can describe this store in one word: Incredible!

Pressed Powder in 135

 I couldn't believe I found the OPI Muppet collection in London rather than here at home! I bought all but one of the glitters.

Next up is the haul from the nails, inc flagship store. This store was kinda small but with polish everywhere.  The lovely sales girl willingly helped me with my extensive list! But unfortunately, the three colors at the top of the list were unavailable! :(

 I kind of stumbled across a Lush store at Liverpool Street train station. So I decided to try a couple items. Needless to say, I will definitely be buying more Lush products in the very near future (even if I have to order online since there is no Lush store where I live).
Lush Bubblegum lip scrub and Lemony Flutter cuticle butter
And I have to say, my favorite London experience was meeting Adina of a-england! She and her darling kitty Tristam are as sweet as they can be! And I can say that the upcoming line is a must have! These upcoming shades are amazing! These two polishes were a belated birthday gift from Adina. <3
a-england Morgan Le Fay and Galahad

A non-polish stop was Fortum & Mason recommended to me by Sara of The Daily Nail This store was absolutely incredible. Thank you Sara!!!

  1. Girl. *dead* THIS IS AWESOME! I'm glad you had so much fun, and I enjoyed seeing this post of all your goodies. You did GREAT. Have you used Freak yet? I heard it smells wonderful!

  2. Thank you, Nicole!! I'm glad you liked it! I adore Freak! I think what is great about it is, yes, it is floral but not a sweet overbearing floral. It's more of a musky floral so it is great!
