Pay day haul

I know I’ve been pants with my blog recently and as hard as I’ve tried to keep up with it all I’ve not done amazingly. But I’ll keep uploading bits here and there when I get the chance. 

I’ve got some cool holiday blog post ideas I’d like to post in the next week or two and quite a few reviews. I’ve also been clothes shopping like crazy recently and I’ve really tried to explore different styles that I wouldn’t usually turn to. So I wanted to ask you guys if you’d like maybe a clothes haul or styling posts? Tell me what you’d like to see you’re the ones reading! 

But anyway onto the haul! 

Stop. Look. Breathe.

£4 would you believe! Primark you’ve made me a very happy girl. Anything glitter and I’m drawn. So obviously when I saw this glitter palette my eyes lit up and I had to have it. 

These glitter eye creams are to die for and for £4 no one’s complaining. Still need to test these out a bit more and play around with some more looks. So excited to see what I can do with this.

Next is another Primark buy. I saw a review on this so I picked it up and I’m so glad I did. 

I wasn’t expecting this outcome. I love this. For warmer skin tones this might not work as well. However I am super pale and so often I find all of my highlighters are too golden whereas this one is a silver. 

To all my fellow pales ones please please try this if you’ve found you’ve had the same problem. 

Super boring. Same eyelashes I get in every haul just a stock up for holiday.

This is weird for me. False toe nails?! I was told to test them out and as I’m going on holiday in a weeks time I thought I’d try them then. 

I’m so unconvinced and find them completely creepy, but we never know I might have a change of heart when I actually try them. Let me know how you feel about them!

I usually use the brow filling and tint Soap & Glory Archery 2 in 1 pencil but they were out of stock and I desperately needed something so I picked this one up instead.
I’ve been using it but I haven’t been digging it so far. Although it’s not too different I just can’t get along with it yet.

I saw cleansing milk and I was drawn. I’m aware this says for mature skin but I’m not fussy about that. 
Yet to try this out just thought it’d be cool to try.

Olay isn’t a brand I usually go for but I picked this up again just to test out. 

I’ll be doing reviews on quite a few of these bits soon so if you want to know what I think keep an eye out.

Bioderma. I’ve heard amazing things and super late the party is me. I’ve never tried anything from them so I grabbed this and I’m really hoping I like it.

I had fancy dress day at work yesterday and decided to go all glittered out. I was recommend this glitter primer by NYX and so far I like it.

It’s more like a sort of paste which I think really helps hold the glitter. I feel like it’s not something I’ll reach for often, but I feel like I could probably wear glitter a lot more now that I have this.

I can’t believe I brought this. I’ve had this before and hated it so much I gave it to my mum. But recently I’ve felt like this is the sort of powder my skin needs right now so I got it again. My skin seems to have changed a bit since I last had this and it’s definitely working much better this time.

I’ve had this for a while now but I didn’t show you guys so I thought I’d share with you. This is amazing definitely going to feature in my favourites. 

Quite a unique product I love applying this. Fresh is all I’ll say just now but this will definitely make a few more appearances on my blog.

Thank you guys for being so patient with me. The support from you guys is crazy

Haulin’

Before I start apologies for the lack of posts things have been mega crazy recently. 

First is a Seventeen eyeshadow brush. I brought this like 2 months ago and completely forgot about it in the bottom of my bag. Yet to try it, and I’m not expecting amazing things just saw it and picked it. I believe it was £2.99 from Boots (I could be wrong). I could be pleasantly surprised by it, I’ll keep you guys updated.

Almost a repurchase I keep buying the Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner’s, but I was yet to try this one so I picked it up. It smells gorgeous, can’t wait to use these on my hair.

A monthly purchase I won’t say much about it as I’ve got posts on it already. I. It this monthly I can’t wash my hair without it, really helps.

If you follow my blog you may have seen a post on sample testing and this was one of them. I went out and brought the full size product as I loved it so much. Although the weather hasn’t been amazing I thought I’d prepare for my holiday coming up!

More repurchases I ran out of both of these and these are my go to daily products. Again won’t say much as I’ve posted before. However, I did buy the Infallible Total Cover Foundation in 09 Light Sand rather than 10 Porcelain in the hope it will be lighter and match my skin tone better. I shall let you guys know how I get on with this shade.

This product has changed my skin literally overnight and I’m already in love. This is around £15 which made me a little more reluctant to purchase, but it’s so worth the money! 

A tub of pads to use on your face before you jump into bed. So easy to use and feels like it’s really doing something! Let me know if you want a full post on this! 

Boring! I know. I needed deodorant and picked this one up. Shocked myself as I only ever use Dove deodorants but so far I don’t mind this one at all.

A present from the parents for looking after the house whilst they were on holiday but I wanted to show you guys! I love the quirkiness of Moschino and just look at this! 

Is this not one of the coolest perfume bottles you’ve ever seen?! And to top it off it smells great!

Super late March Fav’s 

So late it’s almost not worth posting. But it’s something to post and I haven’t posted in a few days due to work.

(Excuse the poor images and grubby backgrounds I’m having one of those weeks).

I’m super late to the party with this one! I remember being in school watching YouTuber’s going crazy over this and I would always pick it up convince myself I need it walk round the shop and realise I literally was too broke to spend money on make up I probably won’t wear. 
I say won’t wear because I’ve always shied away from bronzers because I’m so pale. Which is probably one of the worst things I could have done because I have no colour to me whatsoever I actually look ill. I literally can’t imagine life without this bronzer I’ve tried many and they leave harsh terracotta coloured marks on my face and just aren’t any good for me. 

This however this is buildable this isn’t too dark it’s just right for me. The shimmer in it isn’t that God awful bronzer shimmer is a slight tint of subtle shimmer and I love it. 

Smells great too! It’s suppose to smell like chocolate? I wouldn’t say it smells of chocolate at all but it is a nice smell. 

Everyone’s tried these right? I love these I have a few now and they’re my go to’s so easy and I love a matte finish. This particular one is in the shade Dubai, and I’m loving it right. Definitely is a spring colour but does England even get a spring/summer anyway? 
Love the applicator and the size yet to be disappointed by NYX lovely brand. 

This is crazy because I never use concealer’s I just can’t find one light enough for my skin. This one by Rimmel however isn’t too bad and I’m loving how it looks it definitely brightens my under eye a bit. (I say a bit because I have constant dark circles due to the hours I work).
But this pleasantly surprised me and I’m glad I had a sudden impulse buy moment now. I wasn’t too sure about the brush nib it applies with but after using it I actually like it a lot! 

This has changed my life. I can’t even explain. For years now I’ve always stuck to my Revlon Colourstay just because I like it and it works for me. I have brought the odd MAC foundations here and there I just don’t fancy the prices much. 
This however this is flawless it blends nice the coverage is amazing and it honestly doesn’t feel like I have a full coverage foundation on. It doesn’t look cakey -although this could depend on the amount applied and how it’s blended.

I was worried it would be really matte but I still get a dewy look with this and I’m just super impressed and for the past 2 months I haven’t really used my Recvlon Colourstay at all. I feel like everyone needs to at least try this. 

One of those things that everyone’s gone on about again. But I’m really appreciating this right now. I use it as a primer, but that’s not why I’m loving it. 

I’ve been really ill recently resulting in me sweating like nobodies business 24/7. (Gross I know but everyone sweats). This post shave balm is a cooling one and it’s helped to cool me down a bit and I’ve found myself putting this on my arms just to help from feeling rubbish.

Anyway back to using it as a primer is works and is much cheaper for the amount you get and I’ve literally had this for what feels like forever.

This is a moisturiser I swear by. It’s from a honey farm in Cornwall and I must have like 3 tubs I stocked up although this stuff lasts foreverrrrrrrr.

Honey is great for your skin and I feel like my skin really appreciates this when I use it. I usually use it before I go to bed, I used to use it in the mornings but I felt it was a little to heavy. Still a great product though.

I know this isn’t an easy product to get but is a favourite I wanted to share. Definitely recommend products with honey it helps my skin so much.

It’s a boring one and I won’t go into detail, but this has been a life saver! I tend to chew/bite my lips when I think and let’s just say this helps so much and stops them from being so sore.

Again I won’t speak too much on this because I already did a post on this range. But this my far is my favourite thing although I didn’t have it in March I just can’t not include it. This makes my skin feel like it really is clean and it leaves it feeling great.

L’oréal Fine Flowers

Guys. Look how cute this range is. I only purchased these last week and purposely left them out of my hauls so I could do a whole post on them. 

I’ve been using these products for a week now and some might say it’s too soon for me to comment on these but honestly I’m really impressed with them and wanted to tell you guys asap! 

This is what I now use to remove my make up and it gets the majority of it off and feels my skin feeling super great. I literally only picked this up because I was intrigued by the word milk. Love that this has a pump no fuss and these bottles are quite large.

I love that this is in a tub I don’t know why but I really like it. I really enjoy using this product I’ve never used a cleansing cream before and using it along side the other products I go to bed with no traces of make up. 

This is probably my favourite of all the products I’ve tried which is strange because I’m not crazy about toners. This product definitely surprised me I expected to be quite watery and be like any other toner but I find its got a slight bit of thickness to it (that probably makes no sense. I put this onto a cotton pad and it felt really soft almost silky it’s a weird texture and you really won’t understand me if you haven’t tried it. I feel like this is what really made my skin soft and smooth. 

Now I’ve only used this a few times so I can’t say too much but so far it’s really nice. I’ve tried gel washes and I’ve tried cream washes but never a gel-cream wash, so again I was intrigued. I like it but I definitely to use it a bit more.

I just can’t get over how cute these products are! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the scent of these because I’m not a fan of rose scents. However I find the rose and jasmine scent surprisingly refreshing makes me feel even cleaner strangely. Was really pleasantly surprised by all of these products, I’m loving them! Very inexpensive great range.

L’Oreal Pure Clay Detox mask


I’ve been working away recently and my skin’s breaking out like crazy! Don’t know if this is because of stress lack of sleep a bad diet or all of those reasons. Whilst away I picked up this pure clay detox mask I had heard loads of good things about it and seen really good reviews, sick of my skin looking so bad I ran out and grabbed it whilst it was on offer.

I brought with the intentions of putting this on when I got back to the hotel but ended not using it until I got back home due to being so tired! Since then I have been away a few more times for work and I’ve tried to bring this with me whenever I’ve gone away. Although it’s quite a weighty product (the packaging being glass) it’s easier to bring this face mask rather than my Lush ones that need to be kept in a fridge. 

I love face masks and I tend to treat myself to one or two during the week whilst having a bath. I’m not too sure why but I really struggle to do things when I’m wearing a mask I see people doing house work, eating dinner watching films etc. With face masks on but I just can’t do it, is it just me?

Last year there was a massive explosion of charcoal products. I personally love the majority of the charcoal prouducts I have tried out. I love the way this applies to the face and I sort of really like the heaviness/thickness of this mask. This did help clear up my skin a bit but I wasn’t blown away my results. Since using an acid peel my skin has been super soft. After using this product it did feel a bit smoother and refreshed but not much difference just a little boost I guess. This mask dries extremely hard which I actually really like because recently a lot of face masks I’ve used don’t and I never really time how long I’ve had a face mask on I just go by the dryness of it.

I don’t think I’d purchase particular clay mask again, although I am intrigued and would like to try the two other L’Oreal clay masks. I might just be stuck in my ways I love my Lush face masks and now acid peels are a new favourite I try to alternate between using the two. This is a good product but I don’t think it can top my existing products. Although for the price and the amount of product it’s not bad at all!
