Yesterday me and my beau decided to spend the day at Bicester village, I had heard mixed reviews some people said it was amazing others said it was a waste of time. I think it's all about going and having a little look around. A lot of the stores that I really wanted to see ended up being a let down.. All Saints, Dior, Vivienne Westwood were all a bit blah. Before I go into detail I wanted to show you my eyes, I was wearing a yellow and purple flowery dress. I decided to go for a yellow eye with a bit of orange/copper tones in the crease. I often wear this look in the summer and seeing as the sun was out, I got a little carried away.
I used Mac's Chrome yellow on the lid, above it I used 'Off the page' LE e/s and 'Amber Lights' in the crease. I used my Shu Uemura black liner!
I am going to share my purchases, with you now. First thing I got was from D&G, ever since I have passed my driving test I have wanted a nice keyring for my car key. I am currently using a Tiffany one but the little balls keep unscrewing in my bag! So I found this I love how different it is and for once I like the colour (YES I KNOW ITS NOT PINK!) I am always attracted to the prettier colours when it comes to anything/everything. But hey I really like the burnt orange with the rusty gold. My handbag is slowly getting filled with lots of individual pieces like this.
I then popped into Luella and couldn't resist this flamingo. How quirky! Its a bag charm/key ring or whatever I want it to be.. I think this will look great on my Longchamp bag. Luella had some really lovely dresses.. I was close to getting one but I just wasn't in the mood for buying clothes. Do you ever have days like that? where you're just not in a clothes mood?
Next stop is probably what you girls are waiting for the CCO. Let me start by saying hmm.. I was left in that shop for ages.. my fiance went to about 3 shops in the space of me pottering around the MAC products. I wasn't overly excited by anything, most of their current stock is the Hello Kitty collection, I deliberatley ignored the HK stuff and the Fafi bits as my fiance bought me both of these collections when they came out. I was a bit let down with the products, although there was a lot more than I expected. I ended up buying two blush refils, I picked 'Dame' which I have heard a few reviews on, to be honest I think it is gona look a little pale on my complexion, but I am sure mixed with another colour I may be able to achieve a little sumin sumin.
(Note Full Fuscia is way brighter than it appears to be!)
The other blush I got was 'Full Fuscia' which is by far the brightest fuscia blush I have ever seen. It reminds me of show orchid, but in a blush format. I loved the colour so much I had to have it, there were no testers of these two blushes so I had to just pick those that appealed to me, I will most likely do a full review soon.
I got an eye shadow refil in Ground Brown which is simply a matte dark brown, A lot of my matte browns have a slight khaki hint to them, where as this one is really rich like chocolate pudding!
I also picked up a lip conditioner in Strobeblossom, I love the peachy sheen to this lip conditioner and I love that its in the stick format. Its perfect for days when I'm wearing minimal makeup and need something on my lips. It looks good while it does good. I wish I had bought a few more of these.
I saved the best till last.
I was sooo looking forward to going to the Alexander McQueen store and I have to say it was amazing. I was very close to buying these hot pink patent heels, they had a heart peep toe cut out which was is so McQueen. However they didn't have my size! Even though I don't know my shoe size as my feet keep shrinking! Instead I chose this beautfiul scarf. I don't own a McQueen and when we all heard about the tragic loss I really wanted one, in a few years I am sure they will collectables.
The scarf I chose has skulls on it made out of humming birds, I love how dark yet colourful this scarf is. I also this the smoke around the edges it's fantastic. I am so happy with this scarf, I really like that it's different and not obviously an Alexander McQueen scarf. I have to say they had the most amazing things in the McQueen store, my fiance picked up some HOTT sunglasses.. which I will be borrowing haha :p..
Have any of you dolls been to Bicester? What do you think of it? What have you picked up from there? or Elsewhere lately?
