Hi girls :)

Yesterday I've visited Westfield White City in London and got so many new things! My first stop was Inglot store. I never know where to look first because there are so many colours everywhere. I didn't plan to buy anything, just to look around but there was this young male sales assistant who was really knowledgeable and didn't stop talking :D He showed me almost everything and I ended up buying loose powder in shade #11 and Cream Concealer in shade #34.

My next stop was LUSH where I picked up the legendary Lemony Flutter (I love it by the way!). I had 5 black pots which I could exchange for fresh mask but I don't like to use their face masks so I've asked if I could get some discount towards the Lemony Flutter (not whole £5.75 of the mask price) but I was said it is not possible :(

I also visited Superdrug and Boots in case they would have some bottles of Max Factor Fantasy Fire but they didn't. But what they did have was the White Barry M Foundation which will be great for making some of my foundations a bit lighter to suit me better. I also got a very generous sample of No.7 BB Cream for Dry/Normal skin.

My next purchase was Bliss duo including 200ml Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner and 197ml Fabulous Foaming Face Wash at Debenhams. This was an amazing deal! RRP was £46.10 and I purchased it for £13.83!!! I had a look on Bliss stand and the Foaming Face Wash alone was sold for over £18!

It wouldn't be me if I wouldn't pick up some nail polishes, right? I got KIKO glitter polish #231 which was on sale for £1.50 and then shade #254 for regular price.

My last and longest stop was at Twinings tea bar. I love tea so I've spent there about an hour chatting about tea and tasting different types. I bought three loose teas - Yunnan (black), Traditional English (black) and Gunpowder Green and Mint (Green tea and Mint) and small tea infuser.

 So that's all my purchases :)

When I was visiting House Of Fraser, look what I found at Deborah Lippmann stand - Mermaid's Dream! This is just one coat and I wanted to buy it straight away (despite the £14 price tag) but they didn't have any left :(

February GlossyBox

And here is my February GlossyBox! I wasn't overly impressed with this one...quite disappointed actually. The only thing I'm keeping is the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap in Hemp Citrus Orange. My Paul Mittchell item is for curly hair and since I have very straight hair, this is a miss. Next item is DuWop Venom Gloss - I don't wear lip glosses so this one goes to swap box too, I won't even try it. Then there was a BM Beauty loose eyeshadow in kind of a lighter 'sweet sienna' shade. Very nice but I have sweet sienna which is much better pigmented. Last sample is INVIGORATING Lotion from COMO Shambhala. Too much of lavender in it :-/ (yes, I'm fussy about smells :D)

Despite being dissapointed with this box, I'm not complaining because I had it for free by redeeming 1000 Glossydots.

I've never came across Inglot product before as I didn't see it anywhere to be sold as it is brand from Poland.But once I went to London Westfield shopping centre and there was it - Inglot store. I was really excited as they are something like MAC. Lots of colours, tons of polishes and all the makeup artits' stuff.I was just impressed and like in heaven :) There were so many polishes I couldn't decide which one to buy. At the end I grabbed #705 from their Matte collection. Well, it is not really matte, it is more satin finish. The colour is rich and easy to apply and the brush is like other ordinary polish brush. I would compare it maybe to Color Club brushes.

Wear test: The polish has satin finish so there is no way you can use top coat. The polish was drying up very long time so even in the morning I had a bit of pillow patterns on my nails. It started to chip in about 12 hours and after 24 hours I had few badly chipped nails.

Overally, I don't like this polish too much as the satin finish looks just weird, colour didn't come up as nice as in the bottle and it doesn't last very long time :( I hope it is problem just at Matte collection.

Comparison between Inglot's satin finish, Essie Matte about You topcoat and China Glaze Matte Magic topcoat

 Nikdy driv jsem nic od Inglotu nezkousela, protoze jsem nenarazila nikde na jejich produkty, jelikoz je to polska znacka. Jednou jsem ale sla do londynskeho nakupniho centra Westfield a tam byl - Inglot obchod. Byla jsem fakt nadsena, bylo to jako v MACu :) Hodne barev, tuny laku a ostatni kosmetika. Byla jsem jak v nebi. Bylo tam tolik laku, ze jsem se proste nemohla rozhodnout, ktery koupit. Nakonec jsem sahla po laku cislo 705 z matne kolekce. No, popravde to neni matny lak, zaschne spise do satenova. Barva je krasne syta a dobre se nanasela. Stetecek jako u ostatnich znacek. Prirovnala bych ho tak ke Color Club lakum.

Test vydrze: Protoze ma lak satinovy povrch, nemohla jsem pouzit nadlak. Lak tedy bez nej schnul hodne dlouho a i rano jsem mela na nehtech otisknuty polstar. Zacal se loupat uz po 12ti hodinach a zhruba za 24 hodin jsem mela nekolik dost skarede oloupanych nehtu.

Celkove mi tenhle lak nepadl zrovna do oka - satinovy povrch vypada divne, barva neodpovidala barve v lahvicce a lak nevydrzel ani jeden den :( Jen doufam, ze je to problem jen u matne kolekce.
