Just A Collective Haul

Sunday, 23 September 2012

So over the past 2 weeks i've bought a few bits and a few more, preparing for the lovely cold weather after our non-existent summer.......

I'm loving oversized jumpers at the moment and i'm defiantly sure there will be more being purchased soon (you can never have to many jumpers!) The first is from Dorothy Perkins it was a must after seeing it in store styled with a collar popping out the top, not only that the colours just put a smile on my face (weird i know) also on the back it has buttons like the popper kind which spruces it up a little, it retails for £25.00 (so not worth!) However i got it for £15.00 (: a slight bargain if a do say so myself. (it's on sale for £17.00 now though link!)
Next up a boxy see-through pale pink jumper from New Look simple but very me and for £14.99 minus a few pounds with student discount why not.
The blue one is from good old Primark again it's slightly see-through due to the knitted/crochet style but i wont be bearing my all to the world so i bought a few basic coloured strap tops from Primark to not only cover up but to add some colour to an otherwise boring outfit.

Back to New Look ooo i'm in love with this jumper it's nothing special but i like.. a lot ha, it's bat winged with little silhouettes of birds scattered all around it was £22.99 (minus a few pounds for student discount).
Just a basic green great fitting t-shirt which was £6.99 . 
I like america and that's partly why i bought it, not just that though i saw it styled with a blazer which looked super cute but.... i don't own a blazer (LOL) it was though only £7.99.

Essential pair of lounge around the house PJ bottoms for £5,
An uneeded, just had to have new purse with raised heart and studded detail for £4, 

These were on my wishlist the other week and i guess there no longer wished for but do they live up to my expectations keep a look out for my thoughts/review.
I ordered online from Origins (exellent Delivery service btw) and i got to choose 3 Free Deluxe Samples!
Checks and Balances Frothy Face wash (it smells just like a Mojito!) 
GinZing Eye Cream
VitaZing Moisturizer
Another plus the package smelt delicious! 

Montagne Jeunesse Face mask (how do you even say that?) never tried them before so i'm hoping its good for 89p. 
Rose Water this is supposed to help with oily skin/ acne scars so the person in Holland and Barrett said so i will be using this as a toner or you can put it in cakes..........

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser i hope this works its £7.50 but with the many sales online at the moment i got it for around 3-4 pounds. I also got the facial buffer a little cheaper too.
I long for the Models own Ibiza Mix but it's never stocked in my boots grrrrrr so i picked up the "kind of equivalent" that would be Techinc's Carnival for 99p.

Speaking of Models Own Like there Facebook Page so we can all get 50% off most of there website if they get 100,00 likes! (:

Hope you like my recent buys,

17 BB Blemish Balm My Thoughts/Review

Thursday, 6 September 2012

So after dismissing this product for a little while there came a bad day which made me want to spend some money and this is something i purchased the 17 Blemish Balm. A miracle in a bottle? It should be from what it claims to do and i guess it's half way there, retailing at £6.99 i got it for £5.99 while it was still on  promotional offer but onto the product.

What it claims to do....

'All in one magic makeup -skincare, evens out skin tone, covers imperfections, oil control has an SPF of 25. Make up meets skincare the ultimate 'no make-up make-up, weightless creamy formula blends seemingly for a flawless finish. Improves skin condition in just four weeks!'

I'm a fan of the black and yellow packaging as it's vibrant eye catching, clear to understand and straight to the point...

Sleek yet simple, a major plus for me is that it's in a squeezey tube so you can use up and finish all the product.... 

So stupidly i didn't test out the product before buying, i just a assumed as it said light, light is what it should be. Wrong! I was met with a scary orange colour soo not my match but on first application after blending and buffing as much as possible i was impressed by the results it seemed to just blur out my imperfections ever so slightly to give a half way to perfect flawless look. The shade then suited my skin leaving a glowing finish (not the orange kind though). After continuous wear for the past 3 weeks i haven't seen no major improvement in my skin as such but saying that my skin has never been in great condition (it's something i'm still working on slowly, i just keep getting it wrong.) I don't think it really helps control oil for any longer than 1-2 hours as i'm constantly powdering as well as blotting throughout the day with or without this applied (that's what you get with super oily skin) so as i will still continue to use this once my bout of bad skin has improved (it clings to dry patches like i don't know what, defiantly not a good look!) Great product though with all the SPF goodness too i recommend for it's reasonably priced price   

An oh so worth it free gift? I guess so it was free after all.
