Little haul: Paris + Sales

So... I went to Paris to see some friends for a few days at the end of January. As you know, I'm always on a budget, but I still wanted to check out the shops because it was the end of the sales period. My first stop was one of the L'Occitane shop, because I love their products, but my god, they can be very expensive. Of course I was attracted by all the wonderful things they had, but my budget me lead to the sale section. Not much was there, but I did found a little duo of travel size toners, 70% off! I do love a good travel size, because it allows you to test the product out, and always be ready if you go out of town for the weekend. 
Toners on my skin prevent any kind of imperfection (spots, redness..), it became an essential step in my skincare routine, especially in the morning, after a shower and before any serum and moisturizer. I have been using those two for a week - eau radieuse in the morning and eau de lumière at night -, and I'm really pleased by them! Fresh, non greasy, good ingredients, they do the job.
On the makeup side, I am personally a massive fan of the Bourjois brand, and when I saw that the Bourjois shop nearby was doing minus 30% on everything in the shop, and extra sales on some items, I flew in there like a thirsty crazy woman! I was good though, I only allowed myself to buy 3 items; a nail polish, a mascara - the one I'm currently using is drying up - and a cream blush from the "extra" sale section.

They are the Bourjois Cream Blush 03 "Rose Tender"-50% off (from 12,60 to 6,30). Definitely my type of color, a very girly, dusty, soft baby pink that is actually very similar to my natural blushing color. It's a cream to powder finish, so very practical to travel with and perfect for spring, when you want to look fresh and flirty.
Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara -30% (from 14,35 to 10,04 ). I tried the waterproof version before and was blown again. It gave my lashes length, separation, definition and volume! It was crazy amazing. However, I am trying to not use anymore waterproof mascara for the moment - except if necessary - because it is so annoying to get off, even with the best oils. So I'm gonna try to wear more "non waterproof" mascaras and see what happens with my sensitive skin.
1 Seconde Gel Silicone texture nail enamel n°46 "Berry Important Person" -50% off (9,99 to 5 ). I loved the deep purple color, and the color payoff is amazing, but you will need 2 coats. The brush is kind of big, so if you have narrow nails, be careful. The longevity is not bad, it will last 3-4 days without chipping. I'm happy to have added it to my nail polish collection.

I hope you enjoyed the sales and found some good stuff too! Yay!
