April Empties

  • L'Occitane 20% Shea butter hand cream - Love it, already have a backup!
  • Revlon Colorstay foundation - While I have recently been testing out other foundations, I will come back to this and have a backup in stock.  
  • Diesel Loverdose EDP - Besotted! I have backup's! 
  • The Body Shop Hemp moisture high balm - I suffer with some very dry skin on my body and when I saw this in TBS January sale, I though it would be good to try.  To be honest, I don't really rate it.  I didn't think it was especially moisturising, I just found it to be really greasy and the smell was vile! I won't purchase this again.  I've already gone back to my Palmers Cocoa butter that seems to do the trick for me and it smells fantastic.
  • Lacura Corrector pen - Found this to be okay. It worked fine, but I won't be in a rush to repurchase.
  • Cargo LashActivator - Again another okay product.  I liked the brush and the formula was average, there are just other mascara's that I prefer.  I think it's unlikely that I'll buy this again. 
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin - Another love!  I really liked the 'Sin' version that gave just a little touch of champagne shimmer to my eyes,  that sometimes I'd wear it alone without any shadow over it.  I'll certainly buy this again when I have used the regular UDPP's I have in my drawer.
  • MAC Lipgelee in Lust is Lush - This has been hanging around for a while and given that orange/coral is on trend for Spring/Summer I thought it was a good opportunity to use it up.  Nice enough, but not a wow for me.  Unlikely to repurchase.
  • Estee Lauder Time Zone eye cream - A decent sample of eye cream, but I probably won't repurchase.
  • Simple eye makeup remover - Really like this and have already repurchased.

What have you used up this month?

a-england: Ascalon

Here's another beauty from the a-england stable - Ascalon  

I think the a-england shades are fast becoming my some of my favourites.  I find myself reaching for them over other colours and brands, from my collection. There really is something quite special about these polishes.

Ascalon is another really unusual colour.  It's a grey holographic shade with a very definite lean towards purple/lavender which can be seen in the picture below.   It is such a stunning colour, especially when the sun hits it. Beautiful!

I seriously love any holographic shades, so this was always going to be a winner with me.  So pretty!

I think my next a-england purchases may be Order of the Garter, Avalon and Tristam.  Are there any a-england shades that you have your eye on?
