Some people panic buy petrol, some food, but for me it's makeup brushes! Some people might see this as tragic, but I am also sure that I am not alone, there must be more people out there who can empathise with me?!
This purchase is from Shop Louella, which has been created by the wonderful Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter and Zoe from Zoella, in their shop they are aiming to only sell the things that they love - a selection of their favourites if you will. Currently they are only stocking makeup brushes, bdellium tools green bamboo brushes to be precise but I do believe they have plans to eventually stock more wonderful cosmetics (dear wallet, I apologise in advance). I purchased the 5 piece 'Smokey Eye' set when they first launched the shop, but I thought I'd be good and wait before purchasing any more as to be honest I don't NEED them. This all changed however, when Louise mentioned that they were running dangerously low on stock and weren't going to be getting more in for a while - cue me literally scrambling around, checking my bank balance and
deciding I couldn't afford them placing an order - I kid you not, I was like a woman possessed (how many times have you heard me say this in relation to makeup related purchases? I must get a grip). For once though, I have not suffered from shoppers remorse, I just felt very satisfied and excited to see that they had arrived in their gorgeous bright coral envelope. And if, for any reason, the guilt comes to haunt me, I can easily swipe it away because bdellium tools are basically impossible to get hold of in the UK, so it isn't as though I could get them any old time, this could well have been a once in a lifetime opportunity and you just can't pass those up!!
Oh and the sets I purchased are: The Green Bamboo 4 Piece Foundation Kit which consists of a Precision Kabuki, a Finishing brush, a Duo Fiber Foundation brush and a Foundation brush and the Green Bamboo 5 Piece Mineral Brush Kit which is made up of a Powder Blending brush, a Slanted Contour brush, a Precision Concealer brush, a Large Tapered Blending brush, and a Large Shadow brush.
Each set costs £33.95 and postage and packaging was £4.50 I think (which isn't cheap, but they did come within two days).
I look forward to giving these a try, and I will report back with a review once I have used them, and seen how they fare after a wash!
Please tell me I'm not the only one to panic buy "nonessentials"?
