Big Space NK haul and gift with purchase

Last Wednesday, Space NK held one of their amazing events where you get a gift with purchase when you spend over a certain amount. The advertised gift with purchase was good, but made amazing by the fact it contained a £50 voucher for Space NK for you to treat yourself to something extra after the event.

This had me sold, and so I called up my local store to try and get a ticket (no ticket, no goody bag). They were in high demand but I managed to get the last one by a matter of minutes, so set about making my list ready for the big day!

In order to get the goody bag, you had to spend £150 or over, which was a lot, but I decided to get a mix of my regular products, a couple of Christmas sets and to take a leap into the world of luxury brand By Terry.

Here's what I bought:



Nars Guy Bourdin Lip Crayon set - this is a limited edition kit for Christmas and contains 5 mini lip crayons inside a lip print makeup bag. I really like the variety of shades within the kit, and the makeup bag is gorgeous! £30

Laura Mercier mini eye shadows crayon set - another Christmas gift set, I'd been swatching these for a little while before making the final purchase. It contains 4 easy to wear shades that all work well together for a soft, gold makeup look. I love the formula of these and have a feeling I'll be going back for more full-size ones after Christmas. £28

REN Hydra Calm Global Protection Day Cream - this is my regular day moisturiser which I'm almost out of, so it was a good time to stock up. £27

By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder - this is a bit of a cult product and I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about! £41 for a powder seems a bit crazy, so I'm hoping it will work miracles. Look out for a review soon.

Phyto Volum Actif spray - I haven't tried anything from Phyto before, but I recently read a review on another blog who said it was amazing for adding volume to fine hair, so thought I'd give it a try. £15.50

Diptique mini Oriental Spruce candle - every year Diptique bring out a set of Christmas candles and this year I fell in love with the Oriental Spruce scent, which smells like you're sitting in a pine forest (no toilet cleanser smell here!). I'll probably save this one for Christmas day, to mask the fact I'll be having a fake tree, ha ha.

And not forgetting the gift with purchase...


The Becca blusher and Aromatherapy Associates oils are probably the things I'm most excited to try, although I'm hoping the Kevin Aucoin mascara is good too. Everything is either full size, or a very generous travel size, which is great!

I still need to decide what to buy with my gift card - what would you pick?

  3. You did Really well with your original 150 spend let alone the rest!

    My mum offered to let me try and get it online and get me stuff from there from xmas but I want to vary where I spend any xmas money I get so I didn't even try - Your post is making me regret that somewhat, though I probably wouldn't have been quick enough online anyway xx

I am in love with the lipstick queen matte gloss, and the becca blush is beautiful. Waiting till I finish work in a few weeks to treat myself to something else. Enjoy the goodies!
