Beijing Haul! Mulberry, Yves Saint Laurent, Shu Uemura and more!!

To see pictures from my trip to Beijing, look at my recent blog post here :)











(1) Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler - 81 Yuan at the airport! Wanted one of these for ages! Absolutely love it. Review coming soon! (2) Makeup Forever Smokey Lash Mascara - 280 Yuan from Sephora. A repurchase for me. I brought this on my last university trip to New York and loved it. Staple beauty item for me. Review coming soon! (3) Bobbi Brown Makeup Travel Set - £29 from the plane. This was a spur of the moment buy. Can't decide if I will keep it or use it for a blog give away. (4) Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 11 Rose Carnation - 169 Yuan from Beijing Airport. I have wanted to try a lipstick by YSL for a long time but never got around to it. I wanted to pick a colour similar to my I Love Winter Lipstick by MAC because I love the shade so much. Review coming up soon! (5) Faux Mulberry Purse - 85 Yuan from the market. I had to barter hard to get this bargain but I absolutely love it and it looks pretty legit. It came with a Mulberry box and guarantee as well as the mulberry lining in the purse. One of my favourite purchases from the trip! (6) Faux Mulberry Clutch - 75 Yuan from the market as well. Gorgeous item again. Very pleased. This is a present though, so I am not keeping it. (7) Chinese Cosmo and Beauty Mag - 20 Yuan from Beijing Airport. Since I am on a Magazine Journalism course I thought it would be nice to flick through these magazines, even though I can't read Chinese! Oh well! (8) Firewater - 10 Yuan from the gift shop at the hotel. We got given some of this at a restaurant once. It is 56% vol and tastes disgusting! Another present I am giving away! (9) Pu-erh Tea and Jasmine Tea - 300 Yuan from the Tea House at Temple of Heaven. I love these and the cases are so cute! The Pu-erh Tea reminds me of PG Tips except you don't need to add milk and it can help you loose weight. WinWin. (10) Panda Cuddly Toy - 25 Yuan from a gift shop. I LOVE this toy. I think he is so adorable with such a cute face. This is a present for my boyfriend :)


  1. Lovely buys! Always wanted to try the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers but they're so expensive, though I'm guessing they're worth it? x


    1. I would definitely say so! They were pretty cheap over there. I got mine for about 8 quid. If i had thought it through I would have brought another one for a giveaway. Oh well! haha. Maybe another time! :) xxo

  2. Looks like you got some great purchases on your trip! So jealous of the Mulberry purse/clutch, I would never have guessed that they weren't real either! x

  3. I know, its great. I'm really pleased with them. Hopefully they will tide me over till i can afford a real one. lol xxo

  4. Ooo fab purchases! The purse is beautiful..

    1. Glad you agree. It's become the new love of my life. lol xxo

  5. please don't say you brought fake Mullberry !! Thats a crime against British established brands.. how could you lexi ... my heart just broke a little !! apart from this lush blog !!loving the product testing stuff ! xx

    1. Haha, desperate times call for desperate measures! Until i can afford a real one ill be using this fake one with pride. one no will ever know :P thanks huni! xxo
