This weeks treats

To be honest I've been trying to put myself on a self imposed spending ban with Xmas and a holiday coming up but when I was doing some research for another post I'm writing I came across a couple of things I couldn't resist and have purchased!

The first is a brand I have not come across before called Belmacz.  It was a day of discoveries because I found this brand on a website I haven't come across before

So who are Belmacz?  Belmacz is an acclaimed jewellery house.  Belmacz designer Julia Muggenburg has launched a cosmetic collection where, and I quote from Cult Beauty's website 'she has applied the same originality, quality to detail and attention to each beautiful pot of gloss as she has to her gemstone collections.'

I was attracted to her pots of lipgloss because the contain actual flecks of 24ct gold.  Yes you heard me right, this lip glosses have actual gold in them!  This is a gift for the girl who has everything!

Belmacz Glow Gold Leaf Lipgloss

The glosses come in 8 shades and I bought 2 of them-Cornelian which is described as an orangey-coral sunset colour and Punk, described as a putty pink.  I'm so excited to try them, I am hoping they will arrive at my mum's in the UK before they fly to visit us on Tuesday!  Something I was also very impressed with was that at checkout I could choose 3 free samples and they were all really good quality brands-one was Astalift which I have been dying to try but isnt available in Dubai.  You can buy Belmacz Glow Gold Leaf Lipgloss here

The Cult Beauty website has some gorgeous things I am also very tempted by.  Look at this absolutely adorable mini nail varnishes from Dose.  3 small nail polishes encased in a pharmaceutical style bottle.  4 variations-my favourite is "Clever Girl" below.  Definitely on my Christmas list.

I suspect this website might become a favourite-especially as they offer worldwide delivery.

The second thing I have purchased today is a 'Lucky Bag' from Selfridges.  For me, Selfridges is my favourite store with an amazing beauty hall-and when I was in London in September I was thrilled to visit the new Beauty Workshop Hall, showcasing more cult and up and coming brands such as Stila, Fake Bake and Aesop and offering services such as a brow bar, tanning station and a blow dry bar.  It's well worth a visit if you are in London.

Selfridges announced they would be offering an extremely limited edition 'Lucky Bag' which would contain a minimum of 5 must have products from the Beauty Workshop for GBP15.

This morning, at about 10.30am Dubai time (so 06:30am UK time) I got an email from Selfridges saying it had launched.  I literally dropped everything (sorry boss!) to get online and get one!  It'll be delivered to my mum tomorrow and I'll let you know exactly what is in it when my parents arrive next week.  There are a few left but move fast-there are only 1000 in total available-you can buy the Lucky Bag here
