The 100 Day Challenge - Update # 5

13 Jul 2012

It has now been six weeks/42 days since I started The 100 Day Challenge. I'm nearly half way there!! This week there have been a few things that have tempted me, that I almost caved in to, like the much talked about eBay lashes for 99p, and the Illlamasqua sale. But, I resisted. There are six items on my wish list this week...

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation / Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil Blend / Pai Echium Organic Eye Cream

NARS Blush 'Taj Mahal' / Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm

So like last week, there's not a huge amount on there. I really want to try the YSL Touch Eclat foundation because everyone keeps going on and on about how amazing it is! Determined to get to a department store where YSL is sold to get my hands on some samples, as they don't do them on their website. The Balance Me Super Moisturising hand cream is something I got in my June She Said Beauty Box and I have really loved using it. It's almost finished now, and I know I'll get another come the end of the challenge. After trying out the Pai Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator the past few weeks (you can read the review here) there are so many products from Pai I want to try, espcially the Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil Blend and the Echium Organic Eye Cream. Everyone goes on about NARS blushes, and I was looking through the available shades, and really liked the look of Taj Mahal. And last but not least. the infamous Nuxe Reve De Miel lip balm. Everyone's got it, everyone wants it, I want to see what all the fuss is about.

So still, 'so far, so good'. I think the real challenge will be the next two weeks. I turn 24 on Tuesday and have a lot planned. But I have money aside for a birthday meal and cinema, which falls under the 'one meal out a month' rule I set myself. The following week, I am in London for two days in a row for resit exams. Avoiding the shops in St Pancras will be a mission....
