Pay Day Haul

Pay Day Haul
My favourite type of posts are hauls. I'm a little bit nosey and love seeing what everyone else is buying so that I can add some items to my already excessive wish list. This month I have picked up some bits from both the drugstore and higher end makeup brands and I had done so with in a couple hours of seeing that I actually had money in my bank - thank god for online shopping hey!

I'll start with the bits that I ordered immediately... Firsts things that were added to my basket were the CHANEL Creme Blushes. Some thing that I have been coveting for weeks, maybe even months and they have finally arrived here in the UK. I picked up the shades Inspiration and Affinite, both gorgeous shades but I now find myself lusting after Presage - a peachy shade. Next thing, again something I have been wanting for a very long time, the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. This was actually a necessary pucrhase as I had run out of balm cleanser, but I managed to get this in the FeelUnique sale, bonus! I'm still yet to give this a run for it money, but I can tell you that it smells amazing. When I found out that these were going to be sold in Boots I couldn't wait to get my hands on them. I quickly added three of the Maybelline Baby Lips to my basket and I haven't looked back since. Along with this order I added the Clarins Graphic Expression Face and Blush Powder, I knew this would live up to my expectation and it it not only gorgeous in the pan but also applied to your cheeks - a review will be on it's way soon.

Now onto the more spontaneous purchases... The Indeed Labs Pepta-Bright Serum has been something I have ummed and ahhed over many times but once I saw that there was a third off Indeed Labs at Boots I knew that this was my chance and it quickly came with me to browse the makeup stands. And this is where I ended up picking up the Revlon Grow Luscious and Lash Potion Mascara. I had looked at this every now again when I have been in Boots but they had never caught my eye until I saw the Lash Potion with a shiny pink top, superficial I know. These were two for £10 so I thought why the hell not? So off I was heading over to pay when I passed Britney Spears Fanatasy Island Perfume (50ml) for £15, thinking it would be rude not to, I grabbed one and kept my head down until I managed to get to the till.

Last but not least I nipped up the city a few days ago to repurchase the once very loved Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation to see if it is as great as I remember it to be and it is!

I hope you have enjoyed this little story behind how I managed to purchase all of these wonderful products. If you have popped a haul post up lately let me know, I would love to have a read of it!

  1. Hauls are starting to become my favourite posts too! I only posted one last week and another will be going on next as I picked up a Chanel blush Friday as well as too many other things!

    I look forward to your thoughts on Pepta Bright... I use Hydraluron and wondered about the other products in the range.

  10. Very good haul! I love the Double Wear foundation! It is my favorite ever! I've been wanting to give those cream blushes a go! Hopefully you'll do a little review on them so that I can see how they are! I did a Sephora haul post a week ago and been loving those products but since then haven bought more things which means that another haul post is coming soon!! Hope you'll come check that out!
