Went on a shopping spree this morning and since I had promise to show [livejournal.com profile] gokuma my goodies, here they are:




 
1. Tea!!! I'm completely addicted to tea and my stock was already running low. Said stock had been replenished in early January when my dad gave me several boxes and tins of assorted teas for my birthday.
Behold the yummyness:

1. Black tea with ginger. And cinnamon, orange peel, cardamom, pink pepper. hmmmmm
2. Red Fruit Burst. It's so good I had to buy 2. In my defence, it only has 10 bags a packet and I drink it like water ^___~  
3. My good ol' favourite black tea ~ Ceylon. Comfort tea.
4. Green tea with orange-tree flower. Simply delicious.


2. Tea Candles. Jasmine and Orchid scented. They smell wonderfully when burned, not all candles do (and they're cheap too) see pic below for the candles in action.


3.  Moisturising Cream - Imperfections corrector (it says it reduces pimples and redness, cleans and closes pores) and S.O.S. Gel - anti-pimple (promises to reduce pimples in 4 hours) there was another one that claimed it worked in ONE hour, but we all know about quick fixes, so I went with this one. It smells of fruity Italian spumante (sparkling wine) xD
I'm THIRTY btw. It's a curse but at least I'm not getting wrinkles any time soon.



4. Foundation. A brand new one from L'Oréal. It comes with a fluffy brush for applying it, although I though all the tones were too dark.
I used to have a lovely tan looking skin all year long (when I was a kid I was once mistaken for an Indian girl (as in from India and not Native AmericanxD) but I've lost my colour, I'm  pale and yellowy these days, not even a long vacation at the sea will make much darker *pouts* I want my colour back!  Have too see if this lives up to its promises.



5. Shampoo with Peach and Papaya extracts from Lidl. I've thin, oily hair, have to wash it every other day, everyday in Summer, and most shampoos make it heavy and lifeless or a tangled mess; this cheap little shampoo from a store that is more known for bargains than hair care quality, it's my jackpot in shampoos.


6. Eyeshadows. Lots and lots of eyeshadows. Look at all those pretty colours. Damn! Eyeshadows are expensive and I didn't even go for the top designer brands. Ended up picking these, might not be the best quality but it certainly makes up for the sheer amount. Maybe I'll get lucky like with the shampoo;)



7. Blush. More brown than pink. I look like someone who doesn't know how to apply make-up with pink blush. Reeeeal tacky ^___^'



8.
An angle brush, for applying eyeliner and colour to the corner of the eye. Finally got one! Been meaning to buy one for ages.
(Random: my bedspread looks like denim using the macro function of the camera;P)



9. Lipgloss. It matches my lips' colour exactly. It seems it only adds shimmer. It wasn't the effect I was going for but I like it.



10. Ring. Very cool ring.



11. Necklace. I bought it more for the chain, so I could use another pendant I have, but it's been growing on me all afternoon:)

Yeeeeey! A wolfhaul! ^_____^

I also love tea, I always buy lots of different bags and I mix them in a cup (I mean: I put 2-3 bags in a cup and pour water on them). And I can't stick to 1-2 kinds, no: I have to have 6-7 of them on my shelves...

I don't buy Clear & Clean products, 'cause my friends told me they make dry skin even drier and mine is dry enough. Also, fear not - it's possible to have pimples and wrinkles at the same time *sighs*

Interesting new product by L'Oreal. It isn't in Poland yet. I'm going to buy a new foundation soon too, but I think I'll buy Maybelline's Superstay Silky - I have problem with picking a good color and this foundation has two, so you can mix them and get one you need for your skin (at least that's the theory) => http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_IrzwhGFr8wE/TQu-8Tq3v1I/AAAAAAAABNo/JNvPCxyQcwU/s400/370x-1-1a4d2209493b4b863a6de8a9179edd83.jpg

My favourite brand of shampoo is Shauma and I always go back to it, even if I try other products. I've been using Syoss for some time now and I really like the conditioner, but the shampoo isn't so good.

Pretty set of eyeshadows *__* I have so many of them and I have to restrain myself so I wouldn't buy another one. But at least I get better at using them (Finally! I've been practicing it for almost a year!)

I really like that angle brush. I'm trying to find a brush like this for myself (I have one but I need another to put it in my vanity case*). And the necklace is sweet. I don't usually like sweet/cute designs but sometimes something like this really matches with your outfit. (I love necklaces, btw. Probably beacause they're much easier to buy than clothes).

Long comment is long. I hope it's the first shopping post by Marinwolf, I love looking at someone else's hauls! :D

Yes, it was a lovely shopping spree;P Long comments are LOVEā™„

I went and count, I've 15 different kinds of tea at home; some are variations like green tea with mint or with jasmine, but yeah 15!>______< One of my grandmothers does that, puts a bunch of different tea leaves to boil (leaves cos she doesn't like the bags), sometimes there's interesting results, other times not so much;D I just tried the Black tea with ginger, my kitchen smells like X-mas with the ginger and cinnamon scents in the air *happy sigh*

Dryness isn't an issue for me so... I'm actually not overly concerned about wrinkles and like expression wrinkles, it means you laugh and enjoy yourself.
I don't think I'd ever bought Clean & Clear but so far I'm pleased; the moisturiser it's doing its work and the gel, although it doesn't do miracles, has reduced the redness so far. Let's see the result with time.

The foundation is brand new, I saw the commercial for the first time only a few days ago, lets see how it works. And everybody has trouble getting the colour of their foundation right. It's a cursexD

I think I've tried every brand of shampoo in the market and then some prescribed by a Dermatologist; right now I'm satisfied with this one, but my hair and skin has a tendency to adapt to the products and they stop working.

The brush is lovely and I'm really exited about trying the eyeshadows.

It's a fairly recent development my like of cute things; grunge and metal background doesn't much care for sweet/cute things but I've grown soft in my old agexD Actually I learned you can have several different styles and with luck sometimes mix some of it together.

*off to drink more tea*
