A Great Big Beauty HaulSaturday, June 11, 2016
I have been doing some online shopping recently and thought I would share with you what I have been purchasing, so today I have a beauty haul, it's quite a big one so I shall crack straight on with it.
Most of the items I bought are from Boots and Superdrug with the exception of one item but I will let you know where I bought the items from and as always I will link all the items for you.
All the lip products I purchased are from Boots and the first thing I picked up is one of the new L'oreal Infallible Sexy Balms in the shade 204 Never Stop, the Sexy Balms come in either Bold or Sheer and the shade I have is one of the bold shades, it looks in the bullet like a lovely bright coral shade and I can't wait to try it, I also bought Lissy the same one as she has a very similar taste to me and it was 3 for 2 on L'oreal so I picked one up for Lissy as well. Also from L'oreal I picked up one of their Colour Riche Made For Me lipsticks in the shade 373 Magnetic Coral, I have been looking at this lipstick for around 2 years now and never actually purchased it, so when I saw there was a 3 for 2 deal on I thought I would bite the bullet and buy it, again it is a coral shade, which is no surprise for me, and I can't wait to try it. The last lip product I picked up from Boots is one of the NYX Slide On lip pencils in the shade SLLP03 Pink Canteloupe, I have a lot of coral lip colours and one of my favourites is Betty Bright from MAC and I think this will go perfectly with that but also look lovely on it's own.
L'oreal Sexy Balm Lipstick is available for £4.99 currently 3 for 2.
L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick is available for £6.99 currently 3 for 2.
NYX Slide On lip pencil is available for £5.50.
All the nail polishes I picked up are from Boots and the first polish I picked up is the Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Colour in the shade Rose Attraction, I have heard a lot of brilliant things about these nail polishes so I have high hopes for this one and I really like the shade too, it looks perfect for summer. Next is a re purchase and it's the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in the shade Grapefruit, I bought this shade last year and wore it to go on my holidays and loved it, it is such a lovely bright pink/coral shade and every time I wore it last year I got lots of compliments, it is such a lovely shade and I was disappointed when it ran out so a re purchase was a must. The last polish I picked up is another re purchase and it's an Essie polish in the shade Cute As A Button, I love this shade, it is a gorgeous coral shade and again perfect for the summer. Boots had an offer on their Essie polishes and if you bought any Essie polish you got a mini Essie polish in the shade Sugar Daddy free, Sugar Daddy is a lovely pale pink shade and is a shade I have looked at previously, so I was pleased it was a freebie!
Maybelline Super Stay 7 Day Gel Polish available for £4.49 currently 3 for 2.
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine available for £3.99 currently 2 for £5.00
Essie Polishes available for £7.99 currently buy 1 get 2nd half price.
Also from Boots I picked up one of the new L'oreal Nude Magique Cushion foundations in the shade Rose Vanilla, this was on offer for £9.99 instead of £14.99, I was intrigued by the foundation and haven't ever tried anything like it before so thought I would give it a try, I will of course have a full review of it up on my blog very soon.
I also picked up some of the baby Extra Large Cotton Wool Pads from Boots, I much prefer the large square baby cotton pads to the usual oval cotton pads as they are much bigger and ideal for removing makeup or applying toner.
Next I picked up some Micellar Cleansing Facial Wipes from Superdrug, I use face wipes to remove my makeup before I start my skin care routine and these are excellent and are my favourite face wipes, they were a recommendation from my lovely friend Gemma last year and I have been using them ever since.
Also from Superdrug I picked up a pack of 2 cushioned nail files, I have yet to find a really good nail file so if you have any recommendations I would love to know. I haven't tried these as yet so I'll let you know how I get on with them but I'm hoping they'll be ok, they were £1.50 for the pack.
Last but by no means least I re purchased the Pixi Glow Tonic from Look Fantastic. I have used Pixi Glow for many years but hadn't purchased it for a couple of years as I have been trying other products but my skin has been so terrible recently I thought I would go back to an old favourite and see if it helped, I'll of course let you know if it has once I've been using it for a couple of weeks. You can purchase the Pixi Glow Tonic on the Look Fantastic website for £18.00.
So that is everything in my beauty haul, there was rather a lot of stuff, so I apologise that this was a long one. I will be reviewing everything in today's haul post so if there is anything you would like more information on, keep an eye on my blog and feel free to let me know in the comments if there are any products you would like a review on sooner rather than later.
What item was your favourite in today's haul?
