My Space NK sale buys!

You know how Chantecaille is like 3 million pounds per item?  Well I found a discontinued multi stick foundation in the Space NK sale for £9 and a Laura Mercier lip crayon for just £4!!!

Chantecaille New stick foundation: Sun and Laura Mercier lip crayon: burnt clay

I’m getting well into my French born cosmetics brands now.  Totally loving Caudalie and YSL.

Now I’m joining the Chantecaille and Laura Mercier hype!  Although I will be breaking the bank with all of these!

Chantecaille New stick foundation – Sun
This clay (and smell) formula doubles up as a foundation and concealer.  When I was in store looking for it, I was told it’s best mixed with moisturiser to blend the colour out.  Well that’s how I learnt about Laura Mercier as they didn’t have this product so showed me the Laura Mercier equivalent (Secret Camouflage).

But back to Chantecaille.  There was only one shade left in the sale (sun) but as suspected it’s a tad too orange toned for me, even with a tan.  I had a feeling it would be off but as it was only £9 I couldn’t resist!  I’m sure I’ll find a use for it though!

Laura Mercier lip crayon – Burnt Clay
I only bought it as it was cheap as chips.  It’s the best way to try stuff I suppose.  I wasn’t thrilled with it actually.

It swatched fine, but on the lips it came off as greasy and like Vaseline.  The colour was not as deep as it looked which was great but It’s just too greasy.

I’ll try it again, but I know my lips are parched so I’m surprised this came off as grease-a-licious!
