Holiday Buys....

It seems like forever ago that I was lying by a pool in gorgeous sunshine in Tenerife, but in fact it was just the other week.While I was away I treated myself to a few goodies that I have had my eye on for a while, Plus I wanted to take advantage of the Duty Free discount!
So the first thing I got was the Gucci Guilty perfume. I have had my eye on this for a while, my friend uses it and she always smells so lovely, so I thought I would have a little go. Its such a gorgeous smell and I really like the bottle too, I splashed out on the 75ml which was £50 duty free price. Its a scent I would tend to use in the evening as it can be quite strong and is a more sophisticated smell (Which I'm not very often!), I prefer a lighter spray in the day, I normally use Marc Jacobs (Biggest Fan!) or CK summer, Im also love Miss Dior at the moment.
My next cheeky purchase was a Clinique Chubby Stick, I have been banging on about these for ages and I finally got my hands on one. With my Duty free discount I paid £12 which is pretty good as they are around £18 in the shops. I went for Chunky Cherry which is a beautiful pinky colour, I was a little disappointed with the lack of pigment, they are very balm like but it has done wonders for my lips, it was a great little lip stick to have around the pool! I love how chunky the stick is which makes it easy to find in your hand bag and to apply, I will defiantly be buying a few more.
My final purchase was my favourite and something I am very excited about, The YSL Shocking mascara. A friend of mine told me about this mascara and really rated it so when I saw it I knew I wanted to give it a go, I paid around £20 (I'm not 100% sure how much these are in the shops, I guess around £20)
I am a big fan of YSL make-up and the Touche Eclat is a staple in my make-up bag! I am a bit of a mascara whore if I'm honest and tend to swap brands trying to find new and better mascara, but I think I have found the one. Its such a great product, the application is so easy as the brush is perfect for my eyelashes, it also smells fantastic which is something I would never normally say about mascaras.Please if you get the chance to buy this then please do, I got the black but I would love to know how the other colours are.
Let me know if you have used any of these products too and what you thought of them!
