So this is my first ever haul. Exciting or what!? At the end of last month I went on a bit of a shopping spree so it’s some bits I got then and other items that I have picked up since. Most of it was purchased in either Boots, Superdrug or Lush but I will let you know where it was from as well as the price if I can remember it.
So this is something that I had been wanting to try for a while as I had read some good reviews of it. After my disappointment with the Along Came Betty BB Cream I was a little unsure wether to go down the budget route for BB creams again, but I gave it a go and have been very pleased with the results. I am not going to go into detailed reviews of the products as I plan to review them in more detail in their own posts in the future.
This was obviously for Superdrug and cost £4.66 which I think is an offer that they are doing at the moment.
Barry M Dazzle Dust Eyeshadow-Silvery Black
When I was looking round this caught my eye in the reduced section. I decided to buy it as the offer was too good to refuse and as it was all glittery which I find hard to resist! I am not sure why it was reduced as they still have it for sale for full price on the Boots website.
This was from Boots as I have mentioned and cost the grand total of £1
I wanted this product for ages after having seen the adverts on tv. I have mentioned before that I struggle with applying eyeliner and thought the size of the pen would help me to get a better grip and get a better application. It has very sleek looking packaging and a little plastic protector to protect the nib. I am not sure if it comes in more than one colour but mine says extra black on it.
I bought it in Superdrug and it was £5.49. This seems to have gone up in price since I bought it as it is £6.99 now.
This is something that every one had given rave reviews of online and I was desperate to get. Being the bargain hunter I am I had been looking to see where I could get it for the cheapest price. When I realised that Superdrug were running a deal on the real techniques range I snapped it up.
As I mentioned I got it from Superdrug where it is still on offer of buy one get one half price. I therefore paid £5.49 for this brush.
This set contains a detailer brush, pointed foundation brush,buffing brush and a contour brush. The brushes also come in a black case which can be used to transport them. The case then folds in half to create a stand that you can use to hold the brushes.
This also came from Superdrug and the set cost £20.99 and was part of the same deal as the stippling brush.
My nails were in poor condition so I decided to buy some Impress nails to cover them up. As they are stick on I thought they would do minimal damage to my nails and cover them up and give them a chance to grow. I chose the short length french manicure style.
These were from Superdrug and cost me £7.99
I had been looking and lusting over this polish since it came out. It really reminds me of some polishes I had when I was growing up so carries a sense of nostalgia. I had a tough time choosing which of the sweet named shades to choose but eventually plumped for the Bubblegum.
I bought this in Boots. It was part of an offer that was on at the time on Barry M products. I am not sure what the offer was and it doesn’t seem to be on anymore so I am not sure how much I paid for it. At the moment it is £3.99 on the Boots website.
This was a impulse buy I bought the confetti polish and there was an offer so I picked this up. It’s an almost while colour thats part of the Gelly range. Polishes in this range are meant to produce a high shine effect.
As I mentioned it was on offer at the time. I again I am not sure how much I paid for it. It is also £3.99 on the Boots website.
I bought this quite a while ago but still thought it was worth a mention. Again I had been excited about this product for a while before I bought it. It’s a marker style pen that allows you to draw detailed patterns onto your nails. You can get the pen in four different colours but I opted for black, mainly as I am boring but also as I planned to buy more and thought black would be a good starting point.
I bought it in Superdrug and it cost me £4.99
My nails have been really flaky recently which is horrible and the reason why I wanted to cover them with false nails. I wanted to get a nail strengthener to hopefully make them a bit stronger. I looked at a lot of different polishes before I bought this one some of which seemed very expensive but this seemed fairly reasonable. The product claims that it hardens nails and smooths ridges and contains Nylon and Retinol.
I bought this in Boots and it cost £4.95
Lush Fresh Face Mask – Cupcake
This was given to me as three taster posts as it was left over from testers that had been used during the day. This is not something that I would normally buy but it was nice to get the opportunity to try it out.
I had read a lot of good reviews about this product and thought I would try it out as my lips had been very dry. It comes in a small pot and is available in a couple of different flavours and I chose bubblegum. The point is to rub it onto your lips to help remove dy skin and make your lips soft. I think it is mainly sugar it certainly feels as though it is, and it is safe to eat so you can lick it off your lips afterwards.
It cost £5.25
I wanted a new cleanser and as my skin is super sensitive thought this would be a good one to use. It is meant to soften skin and clean it at the same time and is suitable for a range of different skin types. It is a thick cleanser that like a lot of Lush products comes in a black tub.
It cost me £6.75
