beauty and make up must haves from the UK? need some help!

My dear fellow beauty bloggers & readers, especially those of you who are in the UK - My bf is going to London with his family and he offered to bring back some stuff for me, since I won't be able to go with. :(
Now, in the past year there has been a hype about brands such as GOSH and the sleek palettes, that I can't get my hands on here. So, I'll definitely ask for those. Can the sleek palettes only be bought at superdrug or also at boots?

Do you know of any other must-have items, that he'd be able to get for me while in London?
Also, which GOSH products can you recommend? Which boots or superdrug in Central London has a big enough range for him to find the items I am looking for?

Many thanks ♥♥♥

♥ a little update, my 1st MAC Mineralize blush & recent buys ♥

I have been mia for quite some time and I am really sorry. I started a new job and the training's been really demanding. I had to do homework every day and prepare for a humongous test. I passed the test, a 85%, so I am quite thrilled.
And to treat myself I went to MAC yesterday and got myself some goodies.

1st off, I have to say that I had to part from one of my most loved blushes. Last time I used it, it gave me a really bad rash, little spots all over my cheeks, and I decided I needed to part from it. I might have talked about this gorgeous blush's Urban Decay's Afterglow blush in Fetish. It's such a beautiful colour and goes so well with my complexion, in winter when I am fairly light and in summer when I have a golden olive tan. But what can we do, I guess after almost 4 years, it's time to say good bye.

First I decided to go for Breezy, which seems to be very similar to Fetish, just slighter darker. But then I checked out the mineralize blushes and "love things" caught my eye. I still thought, I should go for Breezy anyway to start my blush palette.

So I got Breezy, Tempting eye shadow and a Pro Palette for 4 pans. I walked out of MAC feeling happy, yet I kept thinking about "love thing". So I went back, swatched it again and ended up exchanging breezy for love thing. I will probably get Breezy at some point, but for now, I am super excited about love thing.

Oh, love!!!

I had to put all my MAC Pans (4 in total) into the cute quad - perfect neutral baby palette ♥

barry m and edm haul

Hi my dear followers and fellow bloggers.
Project Ten Pan was put on hold for these wonderful goodies.

First, I ordered an Everyday Minerals sample kit:
foundation samples:
Warm - Buttered Tan (matte)
Golden - Light (matte)
Olive - Golden Medium (semi matte)
blush sample:
Girl's Day (Loooove!!! beautiful deep coral shade with gold glitters)
concealer sample:
Peach Color Corrector (Perfect!! Neutralizes my dark circles like no other concealer I have ever used!)

All of the foundations I ordered seem way too light for my tan self. I am sure I will use them in winter.

And as you might remember I had a post a few weeks back, about Barry M shipping overseas! I couldn't hold myself back and I ended up placing a small order

I ordered two nail paints:

125 - a pale lilac with some pink in it
279 - a hot pink

I also ordered two dazzle dusts:
24 - Old Gold - a goldish green with silver glitter - beware fallout!!
89 - Oyster Grey - duo chrome grey with purple - smooth texture

and last but not least...(I was probably most excited about this one):
Natural Dazzle Compact Powder

As most have already said, this bronzer has a reddish undertone to it and hardly any glitter. I tried it out today as a contour shade and I have to say, I quite like it..

Hope you are all having a beautiful day
